Blog, Style Inspiration

A little bargain shopping

April 13, 2011

I know I suck, I am such a horrible blogger! My guilty conscience has coerced me into doing some kind of quick post because quite frankly, I have been my most unstylish yet this past week. Thankfully, I have not reached the point of sweatpants and crocs, but still, I really need to get my style mojo back *sigh.


I thought shopping would help but I couldn’t find anything appealing or within my budget so I thought of giving a try.


I spent about 200 AED (55 USD) with shipping, I would’ve paid that amount for one dress from New Look or wherever. Bargain, right?

And no, I’m not beneath shopping here because I know Weesha has to pay rent and food bills so anyone who goes all “she shops here?” can either sponsor my wardrobe or suck it. Besides, their quality is surprisingly good.


You really have to search for the plus size stuff and it’s hard to picture them on you when their size 0 models are wearing them but at their prices, I can afford to take a few chances.


Here’s what I ended up with finally (after many hours of thought and zooming into the pictures)



I hope this bag is just as cute in person, it would look perfect against all the florals and colour blocking I plan to do.



I almost didn’t buy this because of her creepy smile. I preferred the navy version of this but I have too much navy and not enough red.



I love this top! So pretty and vintage looking and perfect for Dubai summers. Definitely my favourite!




I spent a lot of time oohing and aahing over this one. It’s sort of a midi tutu skirt and I’m more curious and challenged to style this skirt than in love with it. It should be an interesting experiment, no? I’m open to suggestions!


There you have it 🙂 It’s not much but I’m excited enough about receiving my package, fingers crossed that everything fits!


Love and groveling for forgiveness for being so absent lately,

  • Oh, P.S. can you give me the direct site link? I tried but something else came up.
    I'm super broke too. College student w/ rent and books to buy and no parent help, you know. Sometimes I feel I have to be rich to do good blog posts. But I'm not rich! 55 USD sounds pretty good for all of that.

  • GREAT choices!!! I love that yellow bag, and can't wait to see how it turns out!

  • I love that skirt! Can't wait to see how you style it! whats the link to the site?

  • Pffft. I love wholesale-dress. Inexpensive clothing and good quality imho. Nice picks! I was gonna get that bag but opted not to since I have no money right now.

  • Can't wait to see you style these pieces! Lovelovelove that purple skirt darling, you are going to look so fab wearing it! A relaxed blouse and that yellow bag perhaps? With those super hot black studded boots you have? It would look smashing! At least it does in my head 😉
