My package from lightinthebox.com arrived on the same day as my items from hopshopgo! I waited a long time for this one. No idea why though. I was beginning to wonder if my sponsor had given up on me before starting D: 

I'm so glad they didn't. I love the items that arrived in the mail! Items featured here are available at lightinthebox. They have been very generous to let me have all these gorgeous beauties:

The mesh crop top (above) is super soft, thin and light. I'm quite amazed at the quality and workmanship of this. It is truly as amazing as it looks. Love the fit of it as well. The smallest size is a M but it fits me perfectly fine. I'm so glad it does because I love it so much. The mesh parts are thin enough not to feel to hot in it. Just be sure not to hook on to anything that could destroy the mesh portions because it feels so delicate.

I hadn't expected the floral culottes to be so so pretty! They come with a braided belt as well. It is made of chiffon with a stretchable back, so it is pretty free sized but it does not stretch a lot. Make sure to check the measurements on the website! Anyway, I love the pleats on the culottes and it is pretty hard to make creases on this sort of material so say hello to perfect looking skirts all day! They are so perfect, I'm looking at the other culottes the website offers! Gonna get them all if I can.

I love the cross back crop top too because all these fancy cut out backs are the rage this season! I don't own any tops with fancy backs so this would have been a perfect addition if it fit me better. It is very soft and stretchy but it is just too big for me. It's still wearable but it just looks loose. Even the sleeves are loose. Such a bummer. I would have loved wearing this otherwise. Will replace with my own picture soon. 

I've always adored this cape sleeved lace blouse that I've seen on many other bloggers so I had to get one for myself too. I was quite shocked when it arrived because when laid out, this lace top is in a rectangular shape, just like a scarf, but with a neck hole. If you look under, you'd see two sections sewn for the arms. It drapes on nicely though and there are lots of waves for the sleeves. I feel like a total princess wearing it and it's quite breezy too because it's crochet. Great for the festival season and coachella too! Tuck it into a skirt or shorts to complete the look! 

I chose this knitted sweater because of the nice cut out design and I don't really have white/cream sweaters, so this was a great addition. It's oversized and loose but not thick, so it's suitable for cali weathers and aircon for singapore. It actually doesn't keep you very warm because of all the cut-outs in the sweater, so you might want to wear something underneath. Otherwise, it's great for layering and super comfy and oversized.
