Iron Fist Clothing Major Boner Contest, Haute Gel Nail Polish System & Chicnova Thanksgiving Giveaway Winnings

Happy New Year!! (I know hella late) Before I go on to this post, I just want to say sorry for being gone for a while, the holidays was crazy busy and after that I got extremely sick. I was in bed for a couple weeks feeling the worst and on top of that spent my New Years Eve in a funk of misery (T ^ T). But I'm better now and in general the month of January was not kind to me …>_<…
The reason why I decided to post this in February. 
All I can say now is ... FUCK YOU JANUARY!!!!
LOL (^__^)
Now on to the post >>>

**Iron Fist Clothing Major Boner Contest**
I’m sure most of you know I have a Tumblr {DeathByDizzy.tumbler.com} and if you didn’t, well, now you know LOL ^_−. My Tumblr is just total randomness. I post inspirations, music videos, trailers, random life pics; my Instagram is connected to it so you will also find Instagram pics, and ETC.
So on Tumblr I follow Iron Fist Clothing AKA IFC. I love seeing there awesome photo shoots and that they re-blog there followers that are wearing or showing the IFC merchandise.

Anyways to the point! Iron Fist Clothing posted the “Major Boner Contest” all you have to do is follow and re-blog the post and 3 winners will be chosen to win the complete Wishbone apparel set: top, hoodie, dress, jeans, sweat pants. This was the simplest contest I have ever done.
 I ended up being one of the winners! *:.. o(≧▽≦)o ..:* 
I can not even believe it still. I had no faith of really winning, just because so many people entered. It felt like a slim chance for me, but I did really wanted to win. I’m such a huge IFC fan; there vegan, cruelty free, and my style! So winning meant a lot. Here are the goodies I won + brief reviews:

 Glam Wishbone Zip Back Top in Pewter
Retail Price: $60.00
Description: 84% Cotton, 8% Polyester, 5% Metallic, 3% Nylon, Metallic Lurex, Back Zipper, Loose Fit, Sizes XS-XXL, 27" Length
Fit: Loose! If your plan on getting this, go a size down you would normal get. Unless you want a very baggy look.
Look: It looks great on, love the loose fit. If I feel bloated I don’t worry about my gut LOL. The fabric is gorgeous looking. It’s something you can dress up or down. The zipper detail in the back gives a bit of character and I like!
Overall: I do love, but the price is pretty steep in my opinion, although IFC is a luxury brand. If you want to spurge or happen to find it on sale, I do recommend getting it if you like the style. Again I strongly suggest you get this top a size down from your normal size you get. Even with the size down the top will have a loose fit.
Since I happened to have gotten this top with my normal size, I find it to be very big, to the point it’s quite unflattering. I’m going to do a little alternation on it. I’ll probably post it towards the summer (I know forever right!)

Wishbone Skinny Jeans

Retail Price: $70.00
Description: 70% Cotton, 28% Polyester, 2% Elastane, 5 Pockets, Branded Rivets, Sizes 26-36, 28" Inseam
Link to view or buy Skinny Jeans ---> Iron Fist Ladies Wishbone Skinny Jeans
Fit: Top of the jeans is great but as you get down to the mid calf and below it starts to get a little tight. I’m someone with pretty thick calves. So if you’re someone unlike me it would be just fine for you.
Another thing is if you are short like I am (5 foot even) you will have to get them tailored or hem them yourself. I think I would have to remove a good inch and a half to get it to my perfect length.
Look: I just adore the print of these bad boys! Turns heads for sure! If you look closer on the detail of the buttons you see there logo, which is pretty cool. I love fine details like that!
Overall: Another steep price for me, but if you think you will have the same problems like me with the jeans I wouldn’t even cough up the full price. I know there are better fitted jeans like this for a more affordable price.

Wishbone Sequined Dress in Black --->Stabby Cat Handbag in Black


Wishbone Sequined Dress Retail Price: $55.00
Wishbone Sequined Dress Description: 95% Viscose, 5% Elastane, Printed Sequin Design, Tank Top Style, 32" Length
Link to view or buy Dress ---> Iron Fist Ladies Wishbone Sequined Dress

Unfortunately IFC didn't have the Wishbone Sequined Dress in my size at the time. BOOOOO!! So they let me pick anything off there site to replace it. I went with the Stabby Cat Handbag.
Stabby Cat Handbag Retail Price: $55.00 USD
Stabby Cat Handbag Description: 100% Man Made, 100% Vegan, 100% PVC Shell, 100% PVC Lining, Measures 20"W x 15"H, Magnetic Button Closure, Inside Zipper Compartment, 2 Inside Pockets, Stud Detail.
Link to view or buy Handbag ---> Iron Fist Ladies Stabby Cat Handbag
Look: The print on the bag is so cute and funny, all my friends like it.
I love the shape of the bag, how it’s much narrower at the top and kinda widens that the bottom. It give this huge bag the illusion of it being a (or in my terms) “regular” size bag instead of a carry on you would have for the airport LOL. Although that said the narrow mouth can be a little difficult to deal with when you’re rummaging through your things. Not too much of a big ordeal though.
Also another thing that kinda bothers me, which is quite silly, is it only has one strap/handle. I just find that weird since I am use to two, and I feel like it broke off or something. LOL super silly I know (*^_^*)
Overall: Great bag, great print. I recommend for lovers of over sized bags!

Sleepy Wishbone Hoody in Pink ---> Loose Lips Sweetheart Sweater in Black

Sleepy Wishbone Hoody Retail Price: $55.00
Sleepy Wishbone Hoody Description: 80% Cotton, 20% Polyester, Pink Drawstring, Oversized Hood, Front Pockets, 3" Ribbed Cuffs & Waistband, Branded Zipper Pull, Sizes XS-XXL, 25" Length
Link to view or buy Hoodie ---> Iron Fist Ladies Hoody in Pink

Again, IFC did not have the Sleepy Wishbone Hoodie in my size at the time. So they let me pick anything off there site to replace it. I went with the Loose Lips Sweetheart Sweater.
Loose Lips Sweetheart Sweater Retail Price: $50.00 USD
Loose Lips Sweetheart Sweater Description: 80% Cotton, 20% Polyester, Exclusive of Trim, Mesh (Upper), Sweetheart Bust Line, 3" Cuff & Waistband, Size XS-XXL, 28" Length
Link to view or buy Sweater ---> Iron Fist Ladies Loose Lips Sweetheart Sweater
Fit: I love how this sweater snuggles! The fit is perfect for me! One thing I can complain about is the length of the sleeves. I feel it could be longer, but it just hits my wrist perfect, I’m just one of those people how likes there sleeves a little long.
Look: I like the twist they gave this sweater. It’s really stepping out of the box and giving it a detail not similar to sweaters you see today. Putting mesh on the top front portion of this sweater is genius with a sweetheart neckline shape. It gives a bit of sex appeal and a feminine approach to something that was originally unflattering for women to wear.
Overall: I love! It's a must get, I believe it would be worth every penny!

Sleepy Wishbone Sweatpants in Pink

Retail Price: $45.00
Description: 100% Cotton Shell, 95% Cotton, 5% Elastane Trim, Elastic Ankles, Drawstring,  2" Elastic Waistband, Branded Grommets, Sizes XS-XXL, 27 1/2" Inseam
Link to view or buy Sweat Pants ---> Iron Fist Ladies Sleepy Wishbone Sweatpants in Pink
Fit: I love the sweatpants on! Fits like a glove. The waist band is nothing to be mad about, it hugs you and doesn't try to strangle you. Reminds me a lot of the Victoria's Secret (PINK) sweatpants. It even has a little band for the ankles\ knees (depending how tall you are LOL) like VS.
Look: I adore these sweats on; definitely a piece you would get jelly over. The print is really what sets it off the most. I love the skeletal design! Cute if of course you’re into that like I am.
Overall: This is a great piece to have! Especially if you like to bum it, but in style LOL
The price point might be high on this, but really these are the best sweats. I hate to compare them to Victoria's Secret (PINK) sweatpants, but they’re like them. And there has never been a cheaper version of these sweats that are even worth the buy (in my opinion though).
I love IFC, but the little trouble they gave me wasn’t cool. I would have thought they would have been more prepared in this situation. Making sure they have at least 3 XS, S, M, L, XL, and XXL of each clothing piece insuring the winners will get it in there size!?
But they did make it up to me by letting me pick replacements for the items I could not get. So I forgive them there.
JUST BE MORE PREPARED IFC!!

Anyways I still want to make a special shout out To Iron Fist Clothing! Thank you for this contest and thank you for being unique, stepping out of the box and setting your own limits! You are my favorite clothing brand and I don’t think that will ever change. I’ll be an 80 year old woman still rockin’ my zombie bag!

**Haute Gel Nail Polish System Winnings**

I was the 1st prize winner of this giveaway and I won the Haute Gel Nail Polish System, which is such a big deal! The system cost about $80.00 USD and I got to pick on of the trios I liked most and that cost about $42.00 USD.

I’m planning to do a review on this system, and I really want to review this product in every aspect so you won’t see the review for a month.

So excited to test this bad boy out!
