Kept! I got them in both color, very flattering dress. Appropriate length right above knee, good thick material with inner layer, have to wear a camisole inside though, otherwise it’s a deep V cut,  might show too much skin.

3,CASLON® Sweatshirt Dress

Returned! Very baggy.

4,HALOGEN® Plaid Miniskirt Color Navy- Red Plaid Size 12

Kept! Thick good material, great for fall and winter, goes great with black top. For a big girl like me, it hides my muffin top🍔 , running a little bit bigger, if you are in between size or have slim waist, you might want size down.

5,TOPSHOP Hook Front Tee  Tried on in store, tight in waist area, canceled delayed shipping online.

6, TOPSHOP Jamie High Waist Skinny Jeans Size 32

Returned! Way too small. I’m regular size 30, I can barely pull this pair on.

8,  CONVERSE Chuck Taylor® All Star® Shoreline Peached Twill Sneaker size 6.5M

Returned! Cute, WAY TOO SMALL, NEED 2 SIZE UP.


In Store: My Favorite!

Online ordering shoes turned out very tricking, so I went to my local store you know “just browsing”.

LEFT: PAUL GREEN Logan bootie Sale: $239.90 After Sale: $360.00 In US 8 My Normal Size US 6.5.

RIGHT:BØRN Karava Bootie Sale: $89.90 After Sale: $139.95 Fit US 7.5. My Normal Size US 6.5.


When I saw the Born booties in store, it looked like better than Online, leather is very soft. I tried on the sampler one which is my normal size US 6.5, too small, I ended up fit in Size 7.5. Then the salesman recommended the Paul Green bootie to me, which I purchased at last.Again, with surprising size US 8! It’s actually the reason I decided to write a Haul post, the sizing is SO TRICKY. I can never order a right pair if I’ve ordered online.

I’m not familiar with Paul Green at all, never purchased one before. The reason I purchased it spontaneously is because I was going to purchase a pair of bootie or riding boots on Black Friday sale this year. Since I ran into one already, I took the chance. It’s made in Austria,  Suede, wood sole, very slim, elegant shape. I’m happy with this purchase~
