Fabulous Finds and Fashions-April 27, 2016

Hello!  And welcome to another edition of Fabulous Finds and Fashions.  I don’t have anything fashion worthy, but I do have a fabulous find!

I got a new car!

full cube

I have been saying for a while now that I wanted a new car (or a used car, but new to me).  I had a 2003 Hyundai Sonata that was getting to the end of the road.  It still ran and it was a good ride, but I was getting tired of getting out of the car.


I know, this sounds like a very odd reason to not want a car.  But when you are 5 foot 10 and have to crouch to get into the car, it gets tiring after a while.

So I wanted a car that was taller and I wanted something newer, like 2010 or newer.  And the car I was looking at was the Kia Soul.  I thought that they were absolutely adorable and they were the perfect size for me.  They were taller than my Sonata and had a lot of space to carry my stuff in.


So much trunk space!

And by stuff I mean my coworkers when we go to lunch.

The search was on to find a new car.  2 weeks ago, I had the day off from work and I was in town with my family.  Haley and I went on the lookout to find me a car!  But…it didn’t go so well.

We went to a car lot where we know the owner.  They had a 2012 Chevy Equinox which is the car my grandparents drive.  We took it for a test drive and it was really nice.  But, it wasn’t my favorite.  It felt a little too big for me compared to my Sonata.

So we passed on that one.

And then we went to the car lot that mom and dad bought their Dodge Journey from.  And they had a 2012 Nissan Cube.  And it was adorable!  Haley and I looked at it for quite a while.  And even when she had me look at a different car, I always went back to the Cube.


So this past Saturday, mom, dad, and I went to look more in depth into the Cube.  We got in the car and realized that the seats were extremely comfortable.  And there was soooooo much more space than anticipated.  And it was even cuter on the inside than the outside.

And we took it for a test drive.

And I fell in love.

Like, got 3 block and I was ready to take it home.

But, there was a 2007 Ford Escape that was at the lot that was a nice looking car for a cheaper price with less miles that was in a nice condition.  And, even though I loved the Cube, I wanted to give the Escape a fair chance.

And I got 3 blocks and knew I wanted the Cube.

So, we turned around and went back to the dealership…where I signed for the Nissan Cube.

And I am so glad that I did because it is an awesome car.  It has so much storage space (you know, for all of my coworkers lol), it is tall and I don’t hit my head on the roof, and it is so much fun to drive!  To be honest, I smile every time I drive it because it is so much fun.

So, yep.  That’s my fabulous find for the week.  It may not be super exciting for everyone, but I love it!

PS. There are lights that shine in the footwells.  It comes in multiple colors, but these are some of my favorites!


Fabulous Finds and Fashions-April 13, 2016

Hello!  Welcome to another edition of Fabulous Finds and Fashions.  A time where we show off the clothes that we have purchased and now have to figure out what to wear with it.  Fun!

Alright, so the item on the docket today is this beautiful cover-up.  Honestly, I have no idea what I would call the style of the jacket, but I really like it.  I bought it when I was in 4-H for a Fashion Revue project and love how it fits and how it looks on me.

Unfortunately, I have only worn it with a single style of outfit.

I have always worn this with a white shirt and jeans.  And, even though it’s cute and it looks good together, I really need to find other things to wear it with.  So here are two different outfits that I found in my closet to pair with my jacket.

1. The Gold Skirt

I started off my closet raid by finding this gold J.Lo skirt that I bought on clearance from Kohls.  I’ve always liked the skirt, but it can be difficult to find things to wear with it.  I then added a brown tank top because all of my brown shirts either had design or weren’t the right style to add with the jacket.  So, I went with a simple tank top.  I then added a pair of brown American Eagle heels that I purchased from Payless.  Overall, I thought the outfit looked really cute and I like how it looked in it.

Isn’t it cute together?  I am glad that I found this outfit hiding out in my closet.

2. Blue and Khaki

Full Chinese Jacket and Shorts

I’ll start off with the shirt.  I have had this shirt for forever!  Like, since high school (okay, that was 5 years ago, but still).  But, I pulled it out of my closet and liked the color under the jacket.  I then added a pair of khaki shorts that I bought from Torrid that fit me really well and they are extremely comfortable.  I added a pair of gold Vera Wang flip flops that I bought off season at Kohl for $5 and a gold headband.

Before I leave it here, I must say that I pulled off the boho headband better than I thought I would.  All I had to do was pin my bangs back and I pulled it off swimmingly.

Thank you everyone for stopping by and I hope to see you all on Friday!

Welcome to another edition of Fabulous Finds and Fashions.   Now, this post has both a fabulous find, and a fabulous fashion.

shopping girl with dog box

First on the docket, this absolutely adorable box that I found at Ross.  It was actually in the kids section, but who cares?  It isn’t that big, but it’s big enough to hold the items that I am selling on Poshmark so that I don’t accidentally wear them again.  I love the girl with all of her bags, and then the puppy is so tiny and cute!  It has handles on the side that makes it easy to carry and move around.  And it was only $7!

P.S.-if you want to follow me on Poshmark, find me at @2smallofacloset

Fila tennis shoes

My fabulous fashion is a pair of pink Fila tennis shoes that I also purchased from Ross.  They are so comfortable and perfect to wear to work.  And honestly, the only reason I purchased them was because I absolutely needed them (my previous tennis shoes had multiple holes in it and they needed to be thrown away).  I only paid $20 for these shoes and they are a great investment.

I hope you enjoyed this edition of Fabulous Finds and Fashions.  I hope that you enjoyed this post and hope to see you later in the week!


Fabulous Finds and Fashions

Good morning everyone! Welcome to the first edition of Fabulous Finds and Fashions. We are very excited to be starting this and can’t wait to see what the future holds!

So we are going to be starting off with some fabulous fashions. I went ahead and took some pictures of some of the outfits I have worn to school so you can get a sense of my fashion style.

1. Comfy Plaid


Now I know I wore a very similar outfit in the fabulous fall fashion post, but it is too good to not show again. This outfit is a Faded Glory men’s shirt that I purchased from Walmart for $10. The jeans are Forever 21 that I purchased for $20 (wouldn’t it have been funny if I bought them for $21?!).  The white tank top is Route 66 that I purchased from Sears for $5.  And I purchased the Qupid boots from a local discount store for $15.  This outfit is very comfortable and is something that I would wear everyday if I could.  But, that’s not exactly sanitary.

2. Sailing Out to Sea


I love how this outfit looks!  It looks cute and it may be perfect for going out on a yachting trip.  The American Eagle jacket was purchased from a yard sale a few years ago for something around the price of $5.  The pink Danskin shirt came from Walmart for $10.  These are the same Forever 21 jeans (I like to reuse the same jeans for most of my outfits).  I finished the outfit with a pair of Maurices boots that I got for Christmas for $40.  Of course the sparkly boots, which I would consider the centerpiece of the outfit, are the most expensive.  Perfection? Probably.

So these are two of my fabulous fashions that I have worn to school.  They are cute, fabulous, and perfect for everyday wear.  I hope that you enjoyed this edition of the Fabulous Finds and Fashions and hope to see you here next time.
