Earlier in March I received the 2016 Q1 Bonus Box (#RANBonusBox) from Rakuten Affiliate Network. ( @RakutenMKTG_US via twitter or on Instagram via @RakutenAffiliateNetwork). Among the items inside the box was a gift certificate from #DAWGS (via usadawgs.com) which I used to purchase a blue t-shirt and a red tank top.

DAWGS sells women’s, men’s and kids’ footwear and apparel of the sort you wear when comfort is your number one priority.

The items that I purchased with my Gift certifcate were the DAWGS Basic Crew Neck T-Shirt in blue and the DAWGS Racerback Tank Top in tomato red.

I figured I’d try to have a little fun taking some pics to show how the t-shirt fits. It’s a nice cute little t-shirt. I like how it fits. I would have liked it more if the sleeves were just a little bit longer. I do have to admit, I would probably not spend $25 on a plain t-shirt ordinarily. Maybe if I was a little bit wealthier, but at my income level, $25 for a simple t-shirt is a bit too much. Sad to have so little in the bank, I know.

The outfit: old pair of Mossimo Supply Co skinny jeans, the DAWGS blue t-shirt, old white Nike sneakers, Nike cap, Folli Follie watch, Kate Spade bracelet.

Racerback Tank Top

The tomato red racerback tank top is described on the DAWGS website as “the perfect basic”. It’s made of 95% Super Rayon 5% Spandex. It’s list of features include:

  • Lightweight and soft
  • Scoop neck
  • Sporty racerback
  • Slim fit
  • Modern, longer silhouette
  • Perfect for layering or on its own

This tank top is very fitted. Like the t-shirt it comes with a $25 price tag. I know that’s nothing for some people but for me, it would be really hard to bring myself to a point of being nonchalant about spending $25 on a tank top. I’m not suggesting these items aren’t worth $25. I’m simply saying that a $25 tank top and a $25 t-shirt would constitute extravagant purchases for those specific types of items for my specific budget. But I do find them nice and comfortable and cute.

Singer songwriter Adelamonica AKA Avenue Sixty editor in chief. Writing as Monica for The Monica Archives. Writing has always been one of my passions. In fact, when I was a teenager, I used to tell people they should remember my name, because I was going to become a famous author. I used to live to write and write to live--not in the sense of writing for income but writing to combat depression and to feel a sense of purpose. I've written novels, poems, articles and essays that I tried unsuccessfully to get published over many years starting in my teens. When I discovered blogging several ages ago, I turned to that avenue as a means of doing what I love without having to worry about publishers and their rejection letters. Modeling is also something I have always enjoyed and something I wanted very badly to do as a teenager. So badly that I used to lie and tell people I was a model. I would carry around a large portfolio style photo album and claim it was my modeling portfolio. But, as with my writing, the people with the power to make my modeling dreams come true saw nothing in me that made them stop me in the streets of New York to offer me a modeling contract with their agency. So when I discovered the ability to photograph my own self (before cell phones and selfies) I took up a hobby of pretend modeling at home and that hobby has remained with me throughout my life as a form of self expression and self therapy. I ask that you kindly excuse my lack of worldliness and any instances where I demonstrate lack of tact or lack of knowledge and even lack of basic intelligence in my writing and posing. I'm just here trying to have a little fun doing the things that make me happy. I'm just an average human for whom writing and posing and singing and dancing and the other things I do are ways I express myself and keep myself going on this ever challenging journey of life. I hope you will find something even remotely useful or interesting in the things I share.
