Vince Jumpsuit

I ordered a Vince Jumpsuit from Bluefly since it was discounted deeply, to only $114 (retail $395).  This is one of those times I'm not sure if I love it, or if I will wear it, which probably means I should just return it.

So I actually ordered it twice.  First time was a size 2, but it was defective.  One leg was way tighter than the other leg.  Though I found the size 2 a bit tight overall, showing a lot of cleavage in the front.  So I returned it and ordered the size 4 instead.  Well, size 4 is definitely a better size, and this time both legs are about the same width.  However, I'm not sure if the fit does anything for me.  It's not terrible, but it's not flattering either in my opinion.  Also, my bf actually asked me why it's a jumpsuit that's made to look like 2 pieces.... lol... good question.  Kind of does defeat the purpose...

There is a hidden clasp thing on the criss cross front:

There's buttons and a zipper on the front, which is how you get into this thing:

Back waist is elastic:

There's a weird bulge from the side view lol.. it's the pleat/pocket, but looks a bit strange:

The size 4 is actually a lot longer than the size 2 as well.  The size 2 was more like the length of these on the model.  But the size 4 on me is a bit too long.  I tried tucking about an inch in and I think it does look better being more ankle length like this:

But even if I get them altered shorter, I'm still not sure if it's that great of a fit on me.  So I'm really leaning towards returning it.  I'm only hesitant because I went through so much trouble ordering it twice already and I really want it to work!  Hahaha.  But that's not a good enough reason to keep it.  So unfortunately I think it's going back!  Oh well.  More money for other things!

Zobha Double Layer Tank with Braided Trim

I finally received the Zobha Double Layer Tank with Braided Trim which I ordered last week.  It's funny because I tried it on while my bf was home, and he said it was the ugliest thing he'd ever seen... LOL!  In fact, he said he would not be seen in public with me if I wore it.  But truth be told, I kind of like it!  Hahaha!  This doesn't usually happen, as we have similar taste.  I realize the tank is more of a trendy look.  I guess he hates this trend of short and baggy fitting tops lol.  I think I'll keep it though.  I wanted to wear it to the gym this week to give it a try, but amazingly enough, I'm sick again.  Good Lord.  It's like the 4th or 5th time in like 2 months that I've gotten sick with the same symptoms... ridiculous!  I'm super annoyed.

So based on my recent 2 Zobha tanks, I ordered a size M in this tank as well.  This one definitely fits very baggy.  But the length is barely long enough in the front for my comfort level lol.  I don't want to be wearing cropped tops.  So I'm good with this size.  The mesh layer on the back side is really long though, which I didn't realize when I ordered it.  Here it is on me:

One things my bf said he hates the most about this tank is all the different styles combined into it, such as the braided trims, and mesh, and the other white trim with black stitching for the mesh layer.  I do agree that I could live without some of that lol.  But it doesn't bother me nearly as much, obviously!

Here you can see how long it is on the back:

Anyway, I'm gonna keep it!  I ordered it when they had some discount anyway, so it cost like $30 instead of the full price of $48.  I am curious to try it out though!  Only if this stupid cold will go away for good!!

New Shoes from Fendi & Louboutin =)

My latest ebay scores make me so happy because I got a pair of Fendi sandals and a pair of Louboutin pumps for super deals!  Both are amazing.  

I'll start with the Fendi pair.  I don't know what they are called, but they are awesome and super cool looking!  I got them for like $100 brand new lol.  They only came with the dust bag though.  So that's why I don't know the name.  They are made of snakeskin, leather and suede.  They are super high but pretty comfortable!  Here they are:

I different colors on the bottom of the heel design is a nice touch:

They look super high, but there's actually a hidden platform as you can see below:

It's a little hard to picture what they look like on, just by looking at them.  So here's how they look on me!  They are my usual size 36 and they are seriously pretty comfortable.  One interesting thing I noticed while wearing them is that they have a very soft sole that absorbs the sound as you walk.  So you can walk very quietly in these even on hard floors.

Next, I got the Christian Louboutin So Kate 120mm Pump in Tissu Scarabe Digitale.  I think it just means this super cool material lol.  I really love the print/color/effect, whatever it is.  It's definitely not leather, and it's not fragile either.  It'd actually be a little hard to scratch this material.

I've already shown two different outfits with them on in the last Sunday Funday post!  They are like mermaid shoes!  They look either green or purple or silver, depending on where you look.  But they are actually way more subtle than you'd expect.

The "So Kate" style is very sexy, as it has a skinner stiletto heel than the famed Louboutin "Pigalle" style.  But the So Kate only comes in 120mm which is hiiiigh considering there is no platform at all.  So it's a very steep arch.  It's basically as steep as I can do, but I prefer 100mm usually.  So these shoes are for minimal walking in lol.  However, I did size up to 36.5 which I think makes a big difference.  I tried this style on in the Louboutin store in size 36, and it was like I could barely stand in them.  But I can actually walk a bit in the size 36.5.  I do use these foot petal pad things though.  They give just a tiny bit of cushion for the balls of the feet, as well as prevent the feet from slipping up.  So half a size up, plus these pads, make these shoes very doable for me.
