Cotton Dresses: My Go To

Hi loves!

If anyone read my last post on zaful, I also just updated it with my review of the items I received, so anyone who wants to order from there knows my thoughts! Onto the next post..

Ugh life is hectic! This month besides work, apt hunting, and the blog- I had my cousins bridal shower and her bachelorette party, a wedding, and Halloween. I feel like I need a 3 month vaca somewhere- don’t worry its coming.

So I figured I would write a post on the outfit I wore to my cousins bridal shower, Her shower was up north in this cozy cute looking cabin place and the weather has been bi-polar so I truly had no clue what to wear. I chose an off the shoulder long sleeve dress, with a slight open stomach (in case I couldn’t decide if I was hot or cold LOL). Blush is literally one of my favorite colors and I feel like it’s a very positive happy color so I went with that to fit the theme as well. The fabric is was super amazing and so comfortable. It was heavy material which is good to keep me semi warm in freezing cold restaurants, and the fabric was cotton, ALL 100% cotton and I loved it. It is probably the most comfortable and what I always aim for. I have sensitive skin so any wool, or knitting sometimes makes me itchy. Cotton is very durable, resistant to tearing and high temperatures. It is my go to always: A 100% natural material, cotton is the most common fabric used in clothing ß and I am totally loving all clothes made of cotton. If I could honestly wear a cotton tshirt and leggings or jeans every day to work I totally world. Cotton is by far one of the best products.IMG-6547Processed with VSCO with a4 presetProcessed with VSCO with c1 preset

Speaking of this busy week, I have a wedding on Sunday and that dress will also be made of all cotton, I feel like it is also stretchy- so I can eat like a pig all night, or drink for however long and not look bloated because of the give that cotton has. I can’t wait to show you guys my dress on Sunday but its such a hectic week so I just wanted to come on here and fill you guys in quickly. After all these weddings and shindigs I am TOTALLY binge watching Halloween shows/movies, (HOCUS POCUS) going pumpkin picking, hayrides, and baking Halloween goodies. Sometimes when you are overwhelmed/overworking the holidays come up so quick and you forget to enjoy the preparation and all the fun before hand, does that happen to you guys? I hate it. I also can’t believe it is already Halloween- I am not even sure what I am doing. So this is a reminder to pause and live in the now: HALLOWEEN! What is everyone being?

Anyway thanks for chatting! If you are a cotton lover like me you can buy all the cotton dress fabrics online <– click.

Where do we buy swimsuits!?

Hi babes! So somehow summer is half way through and it seriously scares me that time flies so fast. A couple weeks ago or maybe months, one of my friends reached out to me asking where to get swimsuits? She was an avid Victoria’s Secret buyer, and now that they eliminated their bathing suit section (bad decision in my opinion) numerous people have reached out to me asking WHERE to get bathing suits from. This is seriously a hard solution because I really do not like any basic bathing suits from Macy’s, or the typical department store, but then also shopping online sucks because you cannot try them on. figured I would be the guinea pig and shop trial and error for sizing bathing suits online, see what works and then let you guys know where to shop and how the sizes run. At least this way you guys do not have to waste money not knowing what size to get. This has happened to me a lot during this trial and error and sometimes returning is like $30 shipping! So I just give it to the poor or my little sisters friends who are a size -1 LOL.

This is a quick post but probably the most helpful. I am going to list places that have such unique suits and the sizes to get! Hope this helps and if and when you order hashtag #Beluxe so I can see how they came out! Enjoy Lovies!

1- ZAFUL: Ok so I love this site but their size Small would literally fit an infant. Incase you do not know my size I am a 24 in jeans and XS/S in everything else. I bought a small from here and it could not fit over one leg. Therefore on this site I get MEDIUMS! They also do not let you pick and choose top or bottom sizes..its one size, which I know is difficult because for me- I have NO boobs but a big butt lol, so that is one sucky thing but the prices are ridiculously cheap and they’re pretty unique. SIZE UP!

2- NASTY GAL: So this site went under for a bit, and after I watched the show Girl Boss (watch it!) I wanted to see how this place was doing, it was actually bought my BooHoo which I love so I figured I would order some stuff for Bahamas! They’re stuff is VERY true to size, but be aware the top and bottoms are ordered separately! I recently ordered a top thinking it was both and realized I had no bottoms LOL. So make sure to read and order both! (if you want lol) They are also having a 40% OFF sale!

3- ASOS: I feel like this is an obvious, ASOS is not as cheap as Zaful or Nasty gal but I guess it is still cheaper than VS. ASOS also is true to size I usually get a size 2, because there is nothing I hate more than getting love handles from a bikini squeezing me so hard lol

4- FLY NATION: Ok I found this site a couple years ago and it is by FAR my favorite! Bikinis are literally like $20, the shipping comes in like 2 days (ish) and it is actually really good quality. I am still so mindblown about them but I absolutely love them. I recently got FIVE suits for $82- TOTAL! Yupp thats less than 20/piece. Amazing, go check them out! They also have FREE shipping over $150 and 15% OFF for students! I get a Medium here.

5- MISSGUIDED: Missguided is always having discounts and I feel like they’re style is super on trend! I have a few bikinis from here and they are all extremely thick (meaning good quality and no nipples protruding the bikini when I am cold hehe)

6- ALIXNYC: Ok this place is pricy BUT there are not suits like them on earth. This amazing company recently sent me a suit and I wish I can live in it forever, I cannot WAIT to post it for you guys in bahamas because it is comfortable, good quality, can be worn as a bodysuit or swimsuit, and its my most fashionable and unique piece! I received a size Small – fits perfectly!

7- SABO SKIRT: Yes this company I am an ambassador for and I chose them because of the amazing quality and customer service they have! They’re outfits are obviously perfect and they RECENTLY added swimwear to their collection! SOO many cute pieces! Go check them out!

SUMMER MUST HAVE! DiffEyewear – who doesn’t love these sunnies?! They also give a pair of glasses to a child in need for EVERY pair bought. The amazing-ness of them honestly gives me chills. I love them SO much, get a pair for the summer AND I can get you guys 25% OFF too! Use Code: LAURENBELUXE25 

Well there are my lucky #7 swimsuit picks! Hope you guys find what you want and need and I was of some assistance! LOVE YOU ALL SO MUCH!
