IN with tha new OUT with tha old

First things first, today I finished day 3 of the 30 day shred! WOOHOO I am 1/10 of the way finished!!
 I am so sore everywhere, hopefully I don't look like Hulk Hogan in 30 days! SCARY. 
So the last few days I have been doing some spring "shopping" online. I found some really great deals at F21 and well lets just say I love that store. It never disappoints. Anyways I totally splurged earlier in the month on some items from Mod Cloth. I have been VERY dissatisfied with my purchases though. The first was two shirts one striped tank and the other a grey v-neck with some design on the top by the collar. Anyways, 2 weeks later my order still hadn't shipped!! So Frustrating. Finally I got an email telling me that they didn't have the grey vneck. WTF. To be honest I only ordered the striped tank because I was ordering the v-neck! ANYWAYS. I finally got the shirt. The quality SUCKED, it was totally see through, and to top it off it was like 40 bucks. NOT WORTH IT. I also ordered a pair of wedges. I don't wear heals EVER. They were 65 bucks but I thought they were cute, um they are hideous in person, and VERY cheaply made. Lets just say I sent both items back today. Humph. I don't know if I will shop there again.
 Very overpriced, slow shipping. BOO.
BUT here is what I got from F21 
{well some of it, I got TONS of stuff & still haven't worn it all}
Best part is I got it 2 days after ordering, I loved everything, AND it was cheap!
I got this top and I LOVE it, so comfy so cute, and under 10 bucks! {don't mind da flab, I'm a work in progress}
I got this long sleeved scoop neck shirt, which I also love and it was under 10 bucks too. Oh and the sunglasses were 5, they are cuter in person. They have a green and pink floral print on them:) 
And for some reason I hate smiling in pictures so I always make weird faces, deal with it.
Just a view of what I wore today:) 
Sunglasses: Target
Sweater: Sams Club {lol}-It's actually one of my favs!

Shirt: F21
Pants: Nordstrom
Shoes: Toms
So a few weeks ago Aaron and I purchased a sectional. It took FOREVER for them to order it in. We finally got it yesterday! I am so excited that it is finally in my house. 
{after MUCH effort, and very very sore forearms today}
Here is what we had before:
This couch has another cushion but while moving it, I took them off  and then I was like HUZZAH!! I need to take pics of the old couches so that the new one will look supreme. Unfortunately I couldn't find the other cushion for the photo. Oh well you get the gist.
This couch is teeny it is from IKEA and its tiny. I have had it since I first moved out of my parents house. It has a sheet on it because the dogs ripped a hole in the middle of it and ate out like a TON of stuffing. You can't really tell in the picture but there is a giant dip in the middle.
 Oh and the other couch is chewed up on the bottom. Luckily the puppies are finally growing out of that stage. Well sort of. ha.
AND here is our new Grand Daddy couch. Seriously this bad boy is SO comfy, I am in love:) & so is Sammie apparently!

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend! 
P.S. I won't be blogging tomorrow because of this:

God bless the beautiful people of Japan. May those who are lost, be found, those whom have lost loved ones be comforted, and those that have died be at peace. 
My heart is aching for these poor poor people

i like what you said about being a work in progress. i need to remember that for myself, too. patience.

That is really disheartening about Modcloth. I was going to browse their store but you got me thinking twice. Awesome couch!!!! Major upgrade there! Love your shirts from F21. :)

Delirium said...

Yeah I pretty much never shop at Modcloth because they are ridiculously over-priced. I bought a pair of sandals that were on sale for 20$ and they came very quickly (and I seriously love them), but that's the only time I've ever purchased anything from there and really only because they were on sale.

I love sectionals so much, your new couch looks comfy! And you're looking skinny, I wish I was as motivated as you. :)

Katie said...

i've returned the one thing i ever bought at modcloth too! i'm always afraid with that sight. i think it's over priced just because no one else has anything like it.

your new couch is making me sleepy :)

Ashley said...

Your couch is gorgeous - I love it! And so are all of your clothes! I absolutely love everything I buy from Forever 21. I've yet to purchase from ModCloth and may never now.

Gale said...

I love your new sectional! It really does look sooo comfy. My jack russell at my parents' house used to chew up the corners of the cushion covers of my ikea tiny loveseat too, when i wasn't looking. Haha they love Ikea as much as we do. Also, you go girl on the 30 day shred thing!!! Looking good:)

Deanna said...

i adore forever21. i can browse online for hours. it's actually pretty sad. :)

i hate to hear that about modcloth though. i've never ordered from them, but with their prices i would have hoped for better reviews!

taryn said...

1. you're not even fat at all.

2. new clothes are the best - so i'm jealous.

3. lets trade couches? that big bad boy looks amazing!

4. have a great day!

renee kristine said...

hahahh that's the biggest couch i've ever seen! looks so flippin' comfy though!

Flab? Where? shut your face!
so today is day 3 for me and i haven't done it yet... uuuugh

loving all the new purchases, i went shopping yesterday, too! i'm going to try to stop for a little bit because 1- i have so much stuff that is too small already and 2.. the goal being to lose the weight so i can fit in the shit i already have rather than wasting money on clothes and food getting fatter.. gaaaasp... long sentence. rant over. :)

With Love, Jamie said...

I havn't heard good things lately about ModCloth's clothing...I think if i ever order from them it will just be home items!
Sorry bout your crappy experience with them, lame :(
I LOVE your F21 items though! Cute!
And I am sooo jealous of your couch!! Dan would be too! ;) We want a new couch so bad & yours is pretty much exactly what he wants to get!
Enjoy it! :)

Hey there skinny minnie! I have no idea what you're shredding 'cause you look fine to me. But go you for being so motivated. You always inspire me to workout.

Cute clothes, I'm gong to check out that store.

That couch does look so comfortable. I wish our living room was big enough for a sectional. The doggies would love it, as I see yours does :)
