What you didn't get the memo?

I clearly sent out a wear your sparkle and lace finest memo for today. I am a bit sad none of you got it. I feel a bit over dressed for the party. (I am going to try bigger pictures today because I gotta be honest my eyesight is getting ROUGH)

With coat

Dear lord I hope I don't make this face often

OK real outfit photo now

I highly disliked all makeup details today. I am just not feeling it but I liked this one and you can see the peekaboo of the lime green in my glasses. I really wish they still made these because I would just get the same ones again. These have chewed on arms and are a bit out of shape at this point (almost 3 years old)

And dress detail because you know you want it

So yeah...
Dress Anna Sui for Tahhget
Purple shirt I paid like $2 for at Ann Taylor loft. (I am not being glib I really did!)
Boots Merrell from LLBean
Necklace Marc Jacobs
Coat Forever 21

I have an appointment to go play with Carrie today the lady from Chanel! Yeah! I LOVE playing makeup.I love people applying it on me. Also HELLO it is FREE. I just wish I could afford to buy the stuff! (Well I can get one thing today) I guess I will appreciate everything more since I bought them over time? I do have to say that Dave got me the lip liner last week in "Natural" and I LOVE IT. It doesn't look like I am wearing liner but it makes my lips look nice and full. I don't have very colorful lips naturally so this really works nicely.It will make for a nice Thursday night which are always hard because Dave is in class until very late and has been all week at that point and well I just get mopey. Good thing I have my girls. They shower me with stinky kitten kisses because they KNOW when I need them. They miss Dave too. They get so excited when he gets home at 11. Waffle because he is hoping she can have his ice cream. Daisyboo because she knows he will save her from Waffle.

How are YOU doing my dears?

You are killing it today! This has got to be my all time favorite outfit on you and your hair....*dies* so gorgeous!

Melissa said...

I love it! You look sex-ay in the dark lace! That jacket is fantastic too.

Hope your evening alone tonight goes by quickly!

Jess said...

I love today's outfit so much! That coat is just fantastic as well.

I am sick, so I am not doing so great. I think I might be feeling a little better today though, I just have very little of a voice. :-\ Way to get sick 2nd week on the new job, self!

Cara said...

The dress is quite fabulous, but I have to say, I LOVE the jacket. It's freaking adorable!

Emily Kennedy said...

I love love love that coat. LOVE it.

loooove the coat!
Purple is a great color on you -- also my personal favorite color. Great little dress -- I love the sort of chunky, lattice-like lace.

It doesn't bother anyone that the coat is obviously too small? I'm not looking like that girl who is in denial of her size? I bought it to be a "blazer" and wear with accompanied belt. But it is just too damn small! Forever 21~!

Rachel said...

Coat doesn't look too small to me. I agree w/ V, this is one your best outfits. You just look gorgeous today!

Holy f-bomb, your hair in the second photo. Do you also have a stylist on your team preparing you for a trip down the catwalk?

Yesterday I wore my hair in a bun all day so it was still wet when I took it down and went to bed. I told myself that meant it was clean. wet=clean? So when I woke and it was actually dry (instead of soaking wet like most mornings because ive been showering in morning)

I got out the flat iron and spent a good amount of time this morning (20 min?) and straightened the crap out of it. I was a bit heavy handed with the shine spray too. I think it helped I wasn't rushing like usual.

oh and thank you (say thank you gilbert)

Felicity said...

I love your coat and boots!

mansionmogul said...

You look soooo cute! The coat, the lace, the hair, it's all rockin'!

Megan Mae said...

Super cute! Hope you have a blast at Chanel~

Beck, At Her Best said...

That color is absolutely fabulous on you! I love the dress too- I kick myself for not having gotten one when the collection came out.

tigerteacher said...

Wow! You look great! Your hair looks so shiny and nice!

Have you ever experimented with buying glasses online? I'm a glasses wearer myself and am officially hooked on online glasses - as long as you VERY carefully measure a pair you love you can't go wrong! I've been able to get some pairs for as little as $15 (including prescription, coatings, etc.) and splurged on a couple for more like $50. I'm so hooked at this point that I've added glasses indecision to match the rest of my accessory indecision in the mornings!

tiger teacher.
I have. I can't do it. I have some funky eyeproblems and an astigmatism and trifocals I have to send away for my lenses as it is and I have a VERY sensitive head and for every 100 I try on one doesn't hurt. My rx is anywhere from $600-650 because they are a specialty lense and I have two different brands so I can't take part in any of those deals. I have tried. Trust me.

tigerteacher said...

Oh, Hillary, that's too bad! But the glasses you have are really adorable - and the green accent adds a lot of glam! :-)

hillary said...

I am SERIOUSLY considering Lasik.

This is a VERY cute dress, and I just adore it with that darling coat!
