Butterfly wings have been photographed and been beautifully rendered from recycled micro poly using p.e.t. yarn with their Butterfly Tunic ($124). This is what I gathered from their web-site. I'm not exactly sure what all of that means, but I do know that this has to be one of the most beautiful and unique tunics I've ever worn!

They currently offer 6 different styles - Monarch, Tiger, Tropical Blue, Swallowtail Brown, Blue Glow, and Rainforest Green. I immediately opted for the Rainforest Green because of the picturesque and earthy colors. I was not the least bit of disappointed when I finally received my tunic, because it looks exactly like the tunic featured on their site. However, it doesn't come with a belt to cinch it, but this didn't pose as a problem for me since I have several of those. I like that one size fits all. Therefore, it fits me perfectly! It feels cool and breezy against the skin, which makes it perfect for this extremely hot and sweltering summer we've been experiencing this year.

I opted for the Elegant Red Blouse by Catherine Dox ($77.95), because I ordered the Exotic Ivory Tunic ($119.95) by her last year and couldn't get over it! This is blouse is a bit similar to the tunic. It's beautifully adorned with golden sequins, which makes it stand out more. Not only it's stylish, but it's also very comfortable. A tad expensive for some, but well worth the price, considering the quality. You can also order this particular style in Elegant Blue ($79.95), Elegant Ivory ($79.95), and Elegant Gray ($79.95). Right now, I have my eyes on the Exotic Blue Tunic ($115.95) and Exotic Brown Tunic ($119.95).


The Morning Mist Cotton Dress by Aruna Singh ($77.95) is one of my top favorite dresses at the moment since it's utterly comfortable and beautiful. It would enchant even the most stoic passerby, because it offers a bevy of beautiful details. Morning glories bloom on a wide ruffle of misty white cotton. It features adjustable straps and a gathered bust. Elastic shirring at the back assures an easy fit. Feminine and charmingly sweet, this long sundress is perfect for a lazy afternoon brunch, a day of window shopping, or a combination of both!


The Forest Mysteries Mobile ($49.95) is the most beautiful and unique set of wind chimes I've ever seen so far, and they also create the most melodic sounds I've ever heard from wind chimes. The soothing sound makes sitting on the porch an even more comforting and relaxing experience. The mysteries of the forest are revealed in the melodious chimes of this mobile from Guena. It is inspired by Feng Shui principles that tell of positive energies coming through as the wind announces its passing. The mobile is crafted by hand with dyed agates that reflect the forest's lush green core. They are suspended suspend from a pinewood hoop that hangs from a nickel-plated ring.

These beautiful mobiles are also available in Ocean Mysteries ($55.99) and Earth Mysteries ($59.99)


The Rustic Rock Guitar Statuette by Armando Ramirez ($49.99) has to be one of the coolest and most unique gifts I have ever given to anyone. I ordered two of them, one for my oldest brother and one for my boyfriend. My brother is a guitar lover. I'm slowly following behind since I have two guitars so far. Therefore, I knew this would be perfect for him! My boyfriend doesn't play the guitar, but he's a huge music lover like myself. He's also into artsy time things. So I knew he would appreciate this gift.

Armando Ramírez, the designer of this wonderful piece, recycles an amazing assortment of bicycle and automobile parts as rustic art. A bicycle chain outlines the body while a screw, corrugated wire and metal bits left from a die cutter adorn it. A bearing, screw and cog form the head.

The15DollarStore Review and Giveaway

With frequent new arrivals, their customers are assured of discovering a broad selection of name brand clothing which can be found at well known department stores at full price. While designer names, labels and fashions are constantly changing, one thing remains the same, The15DollarStore.com is committed to quality junior clothing at the greatly reduced price of $15.


I've always admired maxi dresses on other people, but I could never quite pull off the look since the ones I really liked were often too long for my petite height. Thankfully, this has changed after coming across the FUN & FLIRT Floral Print Smocked Maxi Dress in Olive/Rust, which looks very flattering on me. The smocked bodice is comfortable, has adjustable cami straps, and is beautifully detailed with rows of orange, black, and green stitching. The waist continues into a full-length, flared, woven skirt. The fabric is soft and the colors are beautiful and earthy. I've washed it a couple times (cold water is recommended) since receiving it and the colors remained the same.

This dress looks great with my Goldtone Peridot/Topaz Jeweled Rhinestone Peacock Bracelet ($40 at iDesire Fashion Boutique) and Selena Nail Polish ($14 at Julep).


The MISS ME Studded Gladiator Sandals are strappy enough to look trendy and utterly cool without going overboard with an extra amount of straps that go halfway up the calf. The wide t-strap vamp is accented by smaller straps that highlight the sides. This flat sandal secures with two adjustable buckle straps around the ankle. I honestly didn't have high expectations for these sandals, but was pleasantly surprised how comfortable and adorable they are. They're also very true to size.
