Heya Aspiring Gurus!
I ordered a haul from Midnight Velvet for my birthday! My father got a line of credit and he said that I could get some things for my twenty-first birthday. I never got any gifts for my birthday, besides from my besties. So, I was super excited to have some money to spend! What I got was really expensive, but keep in mind that it was my twenty-first and also, my dad will only have to pay a minimum of 25 dollars a month. I also told him that I would pay for half, so technically. It was not that expensive, but it is my most expensive haul in one place. Without further chitchat, here is the breakdown of what I received last Friday and Saturday. Yes, they came in two different boxes. No clue why they couldn’t have sent it all in a bigger box.
Isn’t this box cute?! It is zebra striped! I love that this company made their delivery boxes so personal and customized. However, the other box I received was in plain brown packaging. It was a bit of a disappointment, but at least, I got one pretty box to pack my stuff in when I move. I should be moving before December, but the job I interviewed for is still looking at references and wants to do a second interview. It is between me and some other person. I hope I get it!
Everything was wrapped up so neatly inside of the box. I feel like this company really cares about the quality and integrity of their products, even if most of their products are not produced or made specifically by them.
Mai Tai Floral Dress
89.99 US DOLLARS [SALE ITEM]
I feel like I will be wearing this dress, even through the fall. The colors are so bright and summery! I added a close up, so you can see more detail. The dress is even more gorgeous in real life. The colors really pop! This is a Missy’s small, btw, not a women’s small. I know there is a big difference. I am almost 5’4″, if not 5’4″ and this dress skims the tops of my knees. This is a very appropriate daytime length and the material is very silky. It has a slip, but it has a cowl neckline. Going out for a date wouldn’t be a problem to show some cleavage, but for day time use, I am definitely putting something like a cami or tangtop or some type of shirt underneath this. I feel like this is a jersey dress and could be very wearable taking care of kids in. It flatters my hourglass figure perfect, but beware! If you have a stomach, this will show it off in a bad way, not something you want to wear during your period. I have already worn this dress once and am already in love with it. It’s the perfect dress to go into fall with. Plus, it will look great with my Mai Tai nail polish!
7 Gingerbread Men Lotion
8.99 [SALE ITEM]
4 fl oz each [total of 28 fl oz]
I could not help, but pick these little guys up. They are super cute and come in a variety of holiday inspired scents. I was going to possibly separate them and give as gifts, but I am a greedy person. Once I smelt them all, I had to keep them for myself. LOL. The scents they come in are Vanilla Sugar, which smells exactly like sugar cookies; Butterscotch, which smells like true butterscotch extract made for baking; Wild Berry, which smells sweet and fruity; Mocha, which smells like artificial chocolate [this is my least favorite one]; Black Cherry, which smells sweet but a bit like medicine black cherry flavored; Chocolate Mint, which smells like mint with a bit of artificial chocolate; and Cranberry, which is true to life, it is sweet but a bit spicy as well. They are colored body lotions, so Cranberry is pink, Chocolate Mint is green, Black Cherry is a darker pink more on the red spectrum, Wild Berry is purple, Mocha is a very light beige, butterscotch is a more yellow beige, and Vanilla Sugar is white. I am keeping the packaging to put Christmas gifts in. It will be so cute for a certain someone in mind.
The Perfume Set:
DKNY Fresh Blossom Be Delicious Perfume 2 Piece Set
34.95 US DOLLARS
Spray Perfume: 0.5 fl oz
Body Lotion: 1.7 fl oz
I love this duo! I always wanted the Be Delicious green perfume, but the store only had the fresh blossom, so I settled. I am not disappointed. I am a girl with a girly/punk/glam vibe and fashion sense, so I tend to have citrus, fruity, sultry, musky scents on my perfume shelf. This is the only floral I own and it is a nice floral. Most floral, I find are too girly and pretty smelling if you know what I mean. I don’t want to smell EXACTLY like a rose. The spray perfume on its own lasts for 6 hours, but layered with the lotion, it lasts into the night. The lotion smells fresh, floral with a hint of a fruity, fresh apple smell. It is a heavenly scent that is light, but till packs a punch. One spray of the perfume is all you need, whether its layered with lotion or not. It’s strongly potent, but not overpowering. It smells similar to the lotion with one notable difference: it has more of a sultry, musky scent, which I find preferable in my floral. It is perfect for those girls that love a little edge to their life.
Lace Bra in Deep Sea
34.95 US DOLLARS [SALE ITEM]
This is such a pretty bra, but very practical as well. The cups are not filled in with material to push the girls up, which I hate. My girls need ROOM. I like fuller coverage bra, but this still gives pretty cleavage, instead of half of your girls. It’s more like a fifth or quarter. The lace pattern is very eye-catching and the color is more of a bright teal than how it appears in the photo. There is boning on the sides, underneath, and in the middle. It is made with very sturdy underwire. It makes my girls feel supported and looks like it. It is a very comfortable bra and less expensive than Victoria Secrets with the coverage that I want. For bigger cup size girls, this is the perfect bra….at least for me.
Boy Leg Panty in Deep Sea
12.95 US DOLLARS [SALE ITEM]
The size of these underwear definitely run a size smaller. I wish I got the large size. I have to slowly pull these on over my thighs, where they are a bit snug going on and coming off. I cannot help it that I have beautiful shaped, muscular thighs that are not stick thin. Curvy is the new sexy. Get over it people. Besides that, these fit wonderfully and are definitely a cheeky cut if you know what I mean. These are see through, so it is more of a night-time underwear for dresses or lingerie. Again, I love the color. It makes me look tan or darker skin colored. I don’t know how some colors can do that, but they can.
That is the end of my haul. Have you bought anything similar from another store? Have you ever ordered from Midnight Velvet? Leave a comment or a request below.

That dress is very pretty and bright. So is the floral in the perfume just slight? It sound like even though Blossom is in the name, the scent isn’t all that floral.
It is strongly floral but it has a musky element to it like an undertone of musk which the lotion doesn’t have. I love it. It’s the only floral I have, but it’s not overly girly. It could just be my skin chemistry though. I know scents smell differently on different people. I’ve read reviews that people say that this smells really fruity or really floral. This is floral with a musky undertone for me. I’ll be using it more in the fall, because I like white citrus for August!
I understand that! I’ve been trying to use fresher scents in the summer. The only reason I’m looking forward to colder weather is so I can use up a lot of my sweeter/floral scents. I’m afraid of attracting bugs!
Me too! I don’t use Herbal Essence in the summer anymore as well since I attracted bugs last year.
