Firmoo Glasses and Maxi Dress

Boy! Have I been gone from blogging for what seems like forever now? I just have a lot of things going through my head right now that a little vacation from blogging world was needed just to relax and unwind. I could not get my thoughts together and would usually end up in not knowing what to blog or what to say, so instead I took the blog off. Definitely worth it! I had plenty of time spent with the family. The most important thing in the world.

Anyway, I will be back in full swing some time because this month will be one busy month for us. A road trip is ahead of us, but not the purely-vacation-time-kind-of-trip, but something to do with searching for a new place to stay when we finally move to a new place. After the house searching, we are heading to another town for two days for my husband's workshop and we will see what happens then. There might be a little vacation to the mountains or maybe we will go back and look for another house again if we still can't find one. Wish us luck!

For now, I'll leave you with some photos of me and my new free glasses.

Maxi Dress: Walmart (refashioned)
Shoes: Blowfish via
I said refashioned on this dress, but I guess I should call it more like a little tweaked dress. I bought this maxi dress at Walmart last month without trying them on, I just yanked it right away from the rack when I saw the size small and into the cart. When we came home, I tried it on to find out that I don't like the shape of it on me and just make me look like I am pregnant again. No! We don't want a mama-is-pregnant-again kind of look, so I immediately thought of shirring. Shirring is what I usually do whenever I alter clothes to give it some shape without having to add belt. Easy to do!

 (Sorry, I look like mad in most of my photos. Trust me, I wasn't. I was just tired and in a hurry to make it to my doctor's appointment.)

Now, I have a more defined waist without using a belt. Using a belt to this dress would probably be way too much because of that embellishment on the front. That's just what I thought, but again I am no expert when it comes to fashion or whatever. I just go with whatever I thought would look good on me and appropriate.

I got my new freebie glasses from the other day and I was excited to try them on. What do you think? Does it look good on me? Anyway, although this was not the right pair of sunglasses I wanted, but because the one I wanted was out of stock, they sent me a different pair instead. But hey! These are for free, so I'll take it. These pair of glasses came in at the right time when I felt like I needed a new pair of sunglasses for this summer, something inexpensive, and these arrived. Firmoo has some awesome glasses to choose from for both men and women in reasonable prices that you don't want to miss. Glasses that range from different shapes, styles, colors and even prescription glasses. Firmoo also has a virtual mirror, which you can try on a pair of glasses virtually so you have an idea of which pair of glasses suits best for the shape of your face. Awesome!!! Make sure to check out and get yourself a new pair of glasses. After all, glasses are the inexpensive way to sprucing up your style this summer. Now go! Thank you once again, Firmoo glasses!

Note: Even though provided me with free glasses, my words are 100% mine.
