Shopping Haul: Memorial Day 2017

The first big shopping day of the year for me is always Memorial Day! I cannot help but get into the shopping haul mood as I await my first trip into a mall in months. I feel that this year's trip was highly successful. I ended up really expanding my choker collection, finding a few amazing articles of clothing, getting some to die for high-end makeup, and more. Enough talking, let's get straight into it.


Covington handbag

The first item in my shopping haul is a simple handbag. I could not pass it up after the insane clearance price, on top of my points that I redeemed. I only paid six dollars and some odd cents for it! I think it will look great with the romper and shoes coming up below.

Jessica Simpson Zenonlia shoes

These shoes are almost at my heel height limit. I got them on clearance, which made them a good deal. I like a strappy shoe, and I am a sucker for wedges. I plan on pairing them with the above handbag, and the romper and jumpsuit coming below.

Anna & Ara mismatched earrings

I really like single bar earrings and how they look in the ear. For $2, why not grab this set?

Pineapple pin

I have an obsession with all things pineapple. This pin is super sparkly in real life. I cannot think of a good use for it! I was originally thinking about putting it on my denim jacket, but I think it is too fancy.

By & By Romper

This romper is absolutely beautiful, and almost looks like a dress. I adore the gold accent on the top.

City Streets pineapple t-shirt

This is a rather silly pick, but I cannot resist the pineapple. It is good to have some t-shirts in your collection. This t-shirt is rather odd. It is intentionally sized small, but is not meant to be a crop top.

I was in the market for a new cuticle oil, and stumbled upon this Essie Apricot Cuticle Oil on clearance. It does smell like apricot. While I was at it, I added another color of Essie to my collection.

Arizona 3-pack chokers

I knew that the denim choker in this pack would perfectly match a denim top that I purchased recently. However, the other two chokers are marvelous as well. Chokers are highly trendy, and I cannot get enough of them.


Good vibes tank top

I have an attraction to tie dye items in this periwinkle color. I was also drawn to the cutout on the front, which is trendy this season. In addition, I like the rosegold lettering, which just so happens to perfectly match a ring set shown below that I got on clearance!

White ruffle dress

I bought this dress to pair it with a floral mint kimono with white tassels on the bottom, and a white sun hat. I also think it will look nice with the white lace bow choker coming up soon.

Black t-shirt dress

I needed a basic black dress to go with a black kimono with brightly colored flowers. I appreciate the cutout on the back, but it will not be seen in my outfit.

Rosegold ring set

Here is that lovely ring set. I like that the rings are chunky, it is a breath of fresh air for me. This set is just different.

Gold bar and hoop earrings

I got these earrings for $1, but something attracted me to this style. They truly signify easy elegance, and are unique for my collection.

3-pack chokers

I really purchased this set for the holo choker, but nothing against the other two.

O-ring choker

I have wanted a choker in this style forever! To me it just screams classic choker, as well as punk. I am overjoyed to finally have found one.

White lace bow choker

It is hard to tell when the choker is not being worn, but it wraps around your neck and is tied in a bow. The lace is made of a super stretchy material, so it should be comfortable around the neck.

Interchangeable choker and necklace set- silver

I had to buy this set in both gold and silver because it was too nifty to pass up. Each set has a choker and a chain, and you can swap out the charms however you wish, wear multiple charms at once, or wear only one of the necklaces. These sets will create countless looks for me. I highly recommend grabbing these if you see them.

Pineapple trinket dish

When I laid eyes on this dish, it not only screamed my name, but I knew it would look good with my display jewelry storage. This dish is great for holding anything, such as makeup, or whatever you can dream of. For me, I will stick to jewelry at the moment.

Material Girl strapless jumpsuit

There is something about this jumpsuit that just reeled me in. I knew I could not leave without it. It will be incredibly easy to dress it up or down- just add a black or white blazer for an instant professional look. It came with removable straps, which is a plus. The pant part is made of a stretchy dress pant material. The padding feels like it is of good quality. This may just be my favorite find of the shopping haul.

Gold and silver tattoo chokers

My absolute favorite type of chokers are tattoo chokers, because they remind me of my 90s childhood. I try to collect them in different colors, and I thought gold and silver metallic was so unique!

Safety pin necklace

I have a thing for dainty, delicate necklaces. This safety pin necklace may be small, but it has so much attitude, it is just asking to be paired with a plaid shirt.

Pineapple necklace

Not only is this another dainty necklace, but it is a pineapple! I know I will find a use for it because it is so gosh darn stinking cute.

Faux tragus piercing- silver cross

I am interested in faux piercings, especially ear cuffs. I had personally never seen a faux tragus piercing until walking into Claire's, and I knew I had to get one to try out. Crosses have such an edge to them, which made this one an easy choice.

Moon dreamcatcher necklace

As soon as I saw this necklace I knew it would pair marvelously with a shirt that I recently purchased, and boy was I right! The feathers range from slightly darker to darker than the shirt in question, but still in the color family. The colors paired with the long chain make this match made in heaven. Stay tuned for a future outfit of the day featuring these items.

Dollar Tree

Silver wire lights

While I have no plan for these lights yet, I wanted to stock up just in case a creative idea hits me. These wire lights are so pretty inside jars, I recommend stocking up. You usually do not see them for a dollar.

Scarf & accessory hangers

I have so many scarves that I was not able to display all of them, but these nifty scarf hangers have allowed me to display them all. $1 for a two pack! You can even hang belts on these, or whatever else you can dream up.

Mini jewelry hanger

Since I never stop buying jewelry, having more storage on hand is a great idea. This hanger is perfect for earrings, necklaces, and even sunglasses.

Decorative white candle holder

While this is intended to hold a candle, I bought it to hold makeup brushes! More specifically, the wet n wild Unicorn Glow Higlighting Brush and the Royal & Langnickel Moda Prismatic set, since they look amazing next to each other. Being as that this holder is white, you can easily decorate it. It also comes in black.

Sassy & Chic nails

I am forever buying the cute Sassy & Chic nails at Dollar Tree. They have had so many adorable designs lately. I save them for a rainy day when I need a bomb nail look and my nails are on the short side.

Tori Burch Love Relentlessly rollerball

I originally tried this fragrance in a Play! by Sephora box. I absolutely loved it, and was blown away by the staying power. I had sprayed some on my wrist to test it out, then took a shower. I could still smell it after my shower! I chose a rollerball because it is a cheaper way to get your hands on a high-end fragrance.

Urban Decay Naked Skin Shapeshifter

At this point I am really collecting Urban Decay products. Naked Skin Shapeshifter is an interesting product. It has a cream side, and a powder side. The creams include a highligher, color correctors, and contour shades. The powders are for contouring and highlighting. I have heard good things about this palette, including that it has great staying power. The creams were creamy and smooth, and the powders feel finely milled. The pigmentation is good, which should prevent you from creating some crazy heavy contour.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance

The Modern Renaissance palette is all the buzz right now. I think the shades are 100% to die for. I have always admired warm eye looks built with pinks and neutrals. The pigmentation of this palette is crazy, and the eyeshadows feel silky smooth. I love how the names of the eyeshadows properly capture that renaissance feeling. This is definitely a palette to add to your collection.
