A Failed Bedskirt Hunt and Some Treasures that Followed It...

Hello everyone!

Over the last weekend, I went over to my cousins' house. At the time, I was searching left and right desperately for a bed skirt, since my Hello Kitty flat sheet doesn't exactly cover the bottom part of the mattress where the bed springs are. Of course I'm not just looking for any bed skirt. I'm looking for one that is light pink and ruffled while at the same time being a queen size. Not exactly an easy requirement to fill if you live anywhere outside of Japan. Anyway, I didn't want white because the edges of the flat sheet are white, which will probably blend in with the bed skirt. Now you are probably thinking: "Why don't you buy one from eBay?" The thing is, I would've done exactly just that if I weren't concerned about getting a bed skirt for my bed asap. In addition, I'm a bit worried about the sizing, especially for the type of bed skirts that are just basically gigantic skirts for mattresses bed springs that just only have an elastic waistband with ruffles.

Anyway, my mom suggested that I head over to Bed, Bath, and Beyond to see if I can find a bed skirt over there. I couldn't see why I wouldn't give it a try. I mean, what could be the harm? I had already tried Sears (has ruffles but wrong colour), Wal-mart (no bed skirts at ALL), Home Outfitters (wrong shade of pink and is tailored instead of ruffled), and even Homesense (no pink or ruffled bed skirts). As you can clearly tell, I'm extremely picky with my choices. ^^; Unsurprisingly, I couldn't find a bed skirt that actually manage to meet all of my requirements, but as a semi-consolation prize, my mom got me an small ironing board for $10. I didn't have an ironing board before so it was a nice thing to have. It certainly beats having to get a towel out every time I want to iron something anyway. -.-

Well even though the bed skirt hunt wasn't a success, I still was able to find some lovely goodies out of the trip.

Carole Hochman 2 Piece Pajama Set

Location: Last Chance
Price: Around $9 (40% off of $14.99 CDN)
Thoughts: My mom and my aunt took me to Last Chance before I went off to Bed, Bath, and Beyond, which is apparently a thrift store of some sort. Now not being one for thrift stores or rarely ever go to one, I found it to be an interesting experience, especially since my mom had been babbling on about how wonderful this place is regarding their cheap designer pants selection. I actually got a pair of these special cheap designer pants for $3 but didn't have the time to take a picture. Plus, I'm pretty sure that no one would want to read up on boring black pants. xD

Anyway, I also got this cute 2 piece pajama set. I personally find it a good deal, since 2 piece pajama sets like this usually cost around $18 at Walmart. One thing that I had wish I had done was look over the pajama set before I bought it, since there was a little stain on the shirt. :/ None-the-less, it's still a good buy so it doesn't really turn me off from the whole set.

Las Vegas Rhinestone Shirt

My cousin gave me this shirt that she got from Las Vegas once I got back to my cousins' house. At first I thought it was a bit too small until I noticed the "L" on the tag. Epic fail on the size guessing there...

Will continue another time. I'm not even halfway done with all the hauls that I had recently received over the past week.    


  1. I'm glad you find it! It's really cute as all your stuffs haha, thank you for the support dear <3


  2. oooh. love your blog so much!!
    And I love this post really.)

    Can you answer on my question?

    What is your favorite place on earth and why?
    It s really intresting for me, becaurse I love travaling and photo.)

  3. @Emmanuella Thank you and you're very welcome! ^^

  4. @Mary ♥ Mur Thank you very much! ^^ It warms me to hear that.

    I have to say that my favourite place would be Japan. Well coming from someone who is into one of the "extreme" fashions located there, why wouldn't it be?. Anyway, they have such wonderful and cute things there and it makes me want to go explore all the shops, especially Jesus Diamante.

  5. I have a Last Chance near me, I had no idea there were ones in Canada too! Hope you find a bedskirt soon!

  6. @Sasha C Oh they have one in the states as well? I did not know that! xD Then again I shouldn't be so surprised, since there's definitely more retail stores down south than Canada (ex: Target, JC Penny, Macys, etc.)

    Aww thanks! I will definitely try and find one, though I probably won't have much success. If worse comes to worse, I can always just make one. :) Shouldn't be too hard. It's just basically a bunch of ruffles!
