My latest deals...

Yesterday, I received a package of goodies from Old Navy and Gap. I'm always a little worried when I open a package from them, because sometimes everything sucks. It seems like Old Navy's quality has gone downhill over the past couple of years - yet I'm always drawn in by low prices, sales, coupon codes, and reward bucks, LOL. Gap's quality is a little better, but I never know how the sizing will run - I don't think there is anything in their store that runs true to size.

This time, however, I was pleasantly surprised! I loved everything - and everything fit! Yay!!

The reviews were mixed on this cami - but since several said the cami ran a bit small, I decided to order my regular size. It fits, but I could've worn a size smaller. So for me, it doesn't run two sizes larger like most of Gap's camis, but it does run one size larger. It's so cute - love the lace trim! I may get one in white, too.

I love, love, love cardis - especially ones with 3/4 length sleeves (because I always push the sleeves up). From the reviews, I figured I was either going to love this one or feel like an old blue-haired school librarian in it. Turns out that I love it! It's lightweight, so I can wear it year round - and I like the little crochet trim on the front.

I like chemises for summer because they're cooler than pjs. Plus when I apply sunless tanner, they're loose enough that they don't cause streaking. With dark colors, I don't have to worry about rub-off from the sunless tanner staining the fabric. This one is super comfy - and I do love surf and sun!

I bought this thinking that I could wear it in the winter when I apply sunless tanner. With body proportions that involve being a 36DD and only 5'3" tall, most dresses like this wouldn't fit me well at all - so I don't own a maxi dress, and I've never considered wearing one in public. I put this one on and fell in love! It fits perfectly! The length is perfection (I got a petite), and the bodice actually fits! I still don't think I'll be wearing it shopping or to a restaurant (we don't see a lot of maxi dresses around here), but I would definitely wear it around the house or to a party at someone's house. I'd also take it to the beach on vacation - and there I would wear it out. So it's not going to be a nightgown as I originally planned - I have two other maxi dresses coming (from Target) - and I'll use those for tanning. (Got a great deal on those, too - $18.63 for both - shipped!)
