Anthropologie Fitting Session and Sale!

Ohh hello again!
Yes! I’m doing back to back post! It is the season of GIVING, so I’m giving you all the info about Anthropologie’s current sale!
For a limited of time, you will receive 30% off all clothing and winter accessories.  I bought this cute beanie for myself and this one for my sister. Also, you can take an EXTRA 30% off sale items. If you’re like me and constantly stalk Anthro’s website for sales, this weekend is the time to take advantage of it!
Last weekend, I tried on a few items and the majority of them are now on sale! I hope you enjoy the reviews from my fitting session!
Don’t be surprised if you spot me at Anthro this weekend, doing this.  If you watch Broad City you will get the GIF.

THOUGHTS: I didn’t realize this was jumpsuit until I went into the dressing room. The wide leg pant threw me off. I decided to try it on anyway and FELL IN LOVE!!! The color is amazing the fitting was just right, I surprisingly felt comfortable in this jumpsuit for how form fitting it is. This jumpsuit would be amazing for holiday parties. * This is the only item from my post that is regular price. 
VERDICT: Treat yourself and BUY!!!
///
Color: Sky
Size: Small
THOUGHTS: If you’re looking for a very feminine, wintry look, this dress would be perfect! I like the dress, but i’m not in love with it. It looks a bit baggy on me. Please note, the dress is not an off the shoulder dress, I was trying to find different ways of wearing it.
VERDICT: Meh. I like it, I just don’t like it for myself.

Color: Yellow Motif
Size: One Size

THOUGHTS:  I have a love, hate relationship with kimonos, but this one brought me back on good terms! The yellow shade mixed with the maroon and blue floral print, makes the kimono versatile. You can wear it with leggings, a skirt, jeans, anything really. The fabric quality is fantastic!
VERDICT: BUY!

Color: Pink
Size: Medium

THOUGHTS: This coat was love at first sight! I have a large chest and thought a medium would not suffice. The medium fit perfectly and bell sleeves are an adorable touch! If you’re looking for a coat that gives you an effortless chic style, this is it!
VERDICT: BUY
///
Color: Red
Size: Small
img_4409
THOUGHTS: The sweater is more of an orange shade than red.  I’m just not a fan of how it fits me at the waist. It’s not worth the price. I found better dupes at H&M for under $35.
VERDICT: DON’T BUY

MEN’S GIFT GUIDE 2017

Hey there!

Thanks for the feedback on my women’s gift guide last week!

It’s the men’s turn this week! I set up the guide in the same format as my women’s gift guide. I added low price alternatives and discount codes. There are several gift ideas for your boyfriend/husband, brothers, dad, etc. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions on any of the items on the list, or just to say hi!

I’m going to brave the toy stores this weekend and start Christmas shopping for my nephew. He’s almost 2 and all he wants are trains and cars. Pray for me as I take on Toys R’ Us.

Enjoy your weekend!

Xoxo,

Mia

A Pleated Affair

Hello!

I hope you had a great holiday weekend!

I’m back with a new blog post on pleated skirts! I used to deter myself from a midi or maxi skirt, since I’m short. My thoughts changed a  few weeks ago, while at my second home, TARGET!  I found a blush velvet skirt for under $30! Once I tried it on, I knew I could work with this trend. Pleated skirts are such a versatile piece, it looks great dressed up or down.

Check out my pics below and a list of the best pleated pieces I found online!

One more thing! I’m now a member of the Target Affiliate team! As part of the team, Target will advertise on my site and I will share any Target specials or sales to my amazing Baltimore Belle followers! Just a heads up, I will receive a small commission if you make a purchase after clicking on any Target links. Thanks for all the support!!

Nordstrom Fitting Session

Hi everyone!
I stopped by Nordstrom over the weekend and tried on a few items from the BP and Topshop collection. I hope you enjoy my reviews and pics!
////
Color: Evergreen
Size: Medium
THOUGHTS:
I’ve never been into suede jackets, because suede can get dirty easily. My thoughts changed the second I tried this jacket on! Sorry, not sorry for typing the following:  I’m a firm believer this jacket was made for me ONLY! The evergreen color is D I V I N E! The only thing that stopped me from purchasing this, was the price. I’m hoping Santa will get it for me or I luck out and find a good Black FRIDAY deal on it.! The jacket comes in several colors and fits true to size.
VERDICT: BUY THIS ASAP!!!!!!
////
Color: Camel
Size: 8
img_3686
THOUGHTS:
This camel coat is so easy to style and will go with any outfit. The gold detailing buttons caught my eye. The fur collar adds a chic touch and it’s removable!
VERDICT: BUY!

////

img_3691.jpg

THOUGHTS:
Being 5’1 with a big booty has its pros and cons. CON: Searching for the any pair of jeans. PRO: I never have to hem ankle jeans because they fit as normal length jeans for my midget height! These Topshop jeans fit me perfectly! The material is great and stretchy!
VERDICT: BUY!
////
Color: Tan Memoir
Size: Medium
img_3678
THOUGHTS:
This camisole will make a great purchase, but only if you wear them often. The cami is  lightweight, with adjustable straps, and the scallop design is a cute touch. I recommend sizing down. I wore a medium but It looked wide and long on my frame.
VERDICT: BUY!!
* If you want to save a few bucks, I found a dupe from Target.
////
Size: 8
Color: Metallic
img_3684
THOUGHTS:
The shiny metallic color instantly caught my eye on the rack. But after trying it on, the dress should stay on the rack…forever! It looked droopy on my arms and the material is very thin. Also, my boyfriend jokingly pointed out that it looks like a suit of armor, and now I can’t get this image out of my head, LOL.
VERDICT: DON’T BUY!
The material is poor qaulity, and not worth the price.

That’s a wrap on my fitting session, I hope you found this helpful!

Designer Dupes: Splurge vs Steal

TGIF!!!

I’m a huge luxury designer fan, the only problem is, my wallet can’t say the same.

The past few years I’ve lucked out searching for designer dupes, like the Valentino Rockstud dupe I found at DSW! These pumps are under $70!

I made a list of my favorite designer dupes below. Cheers to faking it while you make it!!

Xoxo,

Mia
