Matching Dresses

It has been a while now since I did not buy my Princesses clothes and shoes. They still have a lot of nice dresses sitting in their closet. But then when we went to the outlet mall last weekend, Princess M got enticed with this pretty pink shoes, my Filipina co-worker gifted her a dress and picked yellow for her, I told her that purplish pink would go best with the shoes so we chose the latter.

Later on, as we kept on walking I realized that the big Princess does not have anything for her so we went back to Gymboree and bought her a matching dress as the little one, only with no shoes. At the end of the day, they were both happy and like the dress color very much. I am glad, I bought them something new for it makes them happy.

 

Shoes only cost $12.99, same goes with the dress, $12.99 each! Not so bad and yes, I believe it is a good deal.

Gymboree Sleeping Pair of Pajamas on Clearance with Additional Discount

Although Gymboree is an expensive children’s brand of clothing yet I love to shop their for my Princesses’ clothes. Not only they are of good quality, gorgeous prints and designs of their dresses but they also offer additional promo on their clearance items.

I scored these two pairs of sleeping pajamas for only $6.72 each. I had a 20% off coupon on hand to top of their additional 40% off clearance prices. So, that’s a total of 60% off!

You see, the prints on these jammies are hearts, they were displayed for Valentine’s Day but I did not mind buying them. Children don’t really care about the occasions, instead, they will view it as beautiful because of heart prints on their jammies. In return, I still get the appreciation of my girls aside from getting them in deep discount.

Movie-Inspired Cinderella Costume for Princess M

There’s nothing better than receiving this FREE beautiful Movie-Inspired Cinderella costume from costume discounters website in exchange of my honest opinion.

Firstly, Princess M feels like she is a princess and for that, when I told her a couple of weeks ago that I ordered a Cinderella costume just for her, she got really excited and happy. I can only imagine the child’s feelings when she found that out and couldn’t wait for it to arrive and try it on but I tried to stop her because I know for sure once she takes it out of the package, she wouldn’t want to take it off.

So, my review for this dress took so long for I have waited for Halloween trick or treat night to take pictures of her. Here’s one of those that I really like with a great pose with the dress about to go start trick or treating in the neighborhood last night.

My Princess M really adored the sparkling dress. It came with a petticoat that makes the dress to look full! It is of great quality and it really sparkles making her feel gorgeous last night for the Halloween. Thank you Costume Discounters for this awesome dress you sent to our Princess.

Costume discounters by the way is a great website to be shopping for costumes of any event. They got tons to choose from. For male, female, boys. girls, or even 0-toddlers. Please check them out guys, promise you will love the selection they have for your little ones or for yourself.

Gymboree Hi-Low Stripes Dress for $12.99

Okay, so I told myself that there will be no buying of new girls’ dresses for a while for they still got plenty of new dresses with tags hanging in the closet especially the big Princesses but seeing these beautiful dresses seemed like it was hard to say no because they were affordable the time I went to Gymboree in the mall two days ago.

Store promo is everything is $12.99 and under, for a such a pretty dress like that with good quality material, why would I let it slip through my hands? To think that I also had a 20% off entire purchase coupon on hand that day? I got these dresses for $10 plus tax each. Hats were on sale for $6.99 and down to a dollar each but I can probably find something cheaper than that in Old Navy or other stores so I might have to return them if I do.

Too bad though they are out of size ten of this dress, I could have bought one for myself so we will be matching three together. I would be cool!

Beautiful Fuchsia Dress for her 4th Birthday

I bought this dress yesterday at Macy’s in the mall but she was the one who picked it. I did not argue her judgment because the dress is truly beautiful in actual, its fuchsia and it looks perfect for her complexion. The price is reasonable so I bought it along with her sister’s clothes.

This morning as soon as she got back home from taking her big sister to school, she asked me to put it on her which I wholeheartedly did. She then was so amused of herself, feeling like a Princess, spinning, turning and whatever fun things she did just to make the most of the beautiful dress. She even asked me several times, “mommy, do you like my dress? Do I look pretty, mommy?”

Of course my girl, you are so pretty and undeniably gorgeous! Whether you wear a dressy dress or in your house clothes, messy or clean… my girls are the most beautiful and the cutest in my eyes.

That Pretty Red Coat I so Wanted to Buy at Macy’s is in My Hands Now!

I know a pretty coat that will look good for my girls when I see one. Last Black Friday sale at Macy’s I saw this classy fleece red hooded coat for my first born. I fell in love with it but couldn’t buy it at that time for I thought it was too much to be paying for. I spent quite sometime in children’s coat department and couldn’t take my eyes off it. In that end, I walked away from there empty-handed. I went home and couldn’t get over how beautiful that red coat is.

Days have passed, I moved on and bought a trench hooded coat at Gymboree online. It was half off plus free shipping, I loved it but it pained me I wasn’t able to use my 20% off coupon and $5 certificate I earned, I paid $25 plus tax for that coat but had returned it. I was thinking, it wouldn’t worth keeping if I am feeling dissatisfied with it. So anyway, I returned it to the store yesterday.

I went to Macy’s afterwards and visited the children’s department area again where that red coat is. Voila! There are still plenty of coats are still available including the one I fell in love with last Black Friday. I scanned the item and rang up $30, last time I scanned it, it was $36 more. I thought $30 was still high for a coat but I had a store coupon of $20 on $50 worth of items. I used it and bought two other items for my first born.

Guess what? I made the coat to come down to $18! I am the happiest shopper ever. Total of three items after $20 off is $32.89 including tax. That isn’t bad knowing that I took home three items with that price.

I am glad I waited for Macy’s ONE DAY SALE instead of buying the coat last Black Friday. Otherwise, I might have returned it.

That red coat that I so wanted to buy is in my hands now. Photo doesn’t look pretty but it is in actual. It is deep red with hoodie. It feels warm, soft and comfortable on the skin. My first born prefers wearing long coats rather than those puffers for it keeps her warm down to her mid thighs.

Black Friday Shopping at Gymboree

I wasn’t planning of going to the mall today because I didn’t want to go through the hassle of bumping into the crowd, as expected, the parking lot was packed and yes, people were flooding in the mall. We finished early from a store just outside our village and I still had time to maybe take advantage of Black Friday deals before 2 pm ended so I went there anyway and brought with me that MK watch I bought online that didn’t like to return it. In tow with me were my girls of course.

Anyway, at the mall, although sales were left and right, I only spent maybe $20 including our food at the food court. I believe I got deals at Gymboree. 4 pieces of merchandise that only total at $14.26 including tax. They had 50% entire store promo and an additional 20% off coupon on hand that made it down to that amount. I was looking for that Khaki trench coat at their store but it isn’t available there so when I got home, I got to their online store and purchase a beautiful Large size hoodied trench coat for Princess J. Got it for 50% off at $25 tax included  plus free shipping and 1% cash back on ebates.

You might wonder why these clothes are all for the big Princess. I know it is a bit unfair for the little Princess for I don’t normally buy her new clothes since she can wear all her big sister’s outgrown clothes. In my mind, it wouldn’t be practical buying the little new clothes so often and nobody would wear them once they get too small for her.

… I learned my lesson to just buy a trench coat for her so she won’t feel too cold compared to buying her just the usual puffer coat that won’t cover much of her body. Trench coats not only they are practical but also stylish and fashionable, do you agree?

Halloween 2014

Here are just a few snaps of my girls’ Halloween this year. I believe this year was more fun than last year. Firstly, because Princess J saw her “favorite” at EV City hall during the festival. Just 5 days ago she told me that she missed Albert and there they were, they saw each other. She was happy, of course.

Secondly, her close friend in school got to join us for a firetruck ride and went to trick or treating later in our neighborhood. It was the first time she’d done it with a friend and her little sister. You see, it’s always fun when there are so many of them walking around the neighborhood going houses to houses for candies.

Looking forward to next year’s Halloween. I already bought my little Princess’ her costume for next year, she will be little Dorothy while the big Princess will be the Genie. This year’s costumes are, the Witch and little squeaky mouse.

Cute Finds at the Thriftstore

Four days after not being able to go out the house, I found myself and the girls at McCart Thrift store today. I was able to find really cute and new clothing and curtains today at a fraction of a price. I bought 4 panels of curtains, 2 table cloths which miraculously fit for our 5-seater table and 4 clothing for my first born.

All 4 pieces of clothing pictured below totalled $21.79, two of which had their original tag in them, I love the Hello Kitty denim dress the most, it is slightly used I think but still looking new, no rips, tears or stains. She will be looking cute wearing it in Fall which I cannot wait.

Will be going back to the store on Sunday because my purchase today over $50 qualifies me for a 50% off entire purchase. It would be nice if I can find another cute stuff there, who knows.

Princess Belle Disney Costume for Her Third Birthday

I am so happy to have been given a second opportunity to receive a free Disney costume in exchange for a review by CostumeSuperCenter. The first one was two years ago which is a Rainbow Princess costume and until now, it still in good condition.

As usual, it is with pleasure to give my honest review of the costume I received from them. Firstly, as soon as I opened the box after it arrived, Princess M happily took out the costume straight from the box and she was joyful. She loved the dress in an instant and wore it. She thinks she is a Princess and that she deserves a beautiful Princess dress.

I love how Girl’s Belle Sparkle Deluxe Costume look on her. I ordered XSmall size to give her more time to wear this dress before she could outgrow it. I trust the quality of the costume to be made with quality materials and that it should last forever, just like the other one mentioned above.

Now that I have this dress, I don’t have to think about buying a costume dress for my soon to be 3-year old toddler. She already got the most beautiful dress she could wear on her natal day, I must say, the dress arrived just in time for her birthday which will be in July.

Photos below are of my little Princess Belle taken this morning. As you can see, she is proud being a Princess wearing a fancy dress in such a beautiful Texas temperature.

I love that the costume came with character cameo, matching headband and a petticoat for it makes the dress look poofy. Without it, the costume would look like any other ordinary dress and won’t be appreciated by my little girl. The petticoat itself is made with tulle and organdy.
