An outfit and a couple mini reviews
I got exactly one photo today before I got caught. I was very embarrassed.
This is another outfit entirely made with items that are a few years old.
Dress and shoes and sweater Target
Necklace Marc by Marc Jacobs
Earrings craft fair
Belt from H&M. I haven't seen another belt like this in awhile. I got this about 8 years ago You can get a buckle on Amazon though and make your own.
I prefer the look above a little more than my own. I never liked how big the neck opening on this dress is. I know about a million bloggers have this same grey dress or the teal one. I like how it looks on others and I never think twice about it but I feel very exposed in it. I think maybe cause keeping the bra straps hidden is an all day thing.
My toes are "Mermaid Tears" by OPI and a coat of "Boom Boom Pow" by Deborah Lippmann. My nails are just "Boom Boom Pow". It is pretty fantastic eh? My friend gave it to me yesterday and it has 24 Karat gold in it. I feel like my nails are pimped out now. I put some on over my couple week old pedicure and it looks like I just had them done again. (That is my not so little secret to prolong manicures)
For my lips I am wearing a Sugar Sprinkles Funnel Cake lipgloss by Philosophy
It is quite great. Soft pink, hardly sticky at all. Leave lips soft and subtle shimmer. OH AND IT SMELLS SO GOOD. Everything by them is pretty accurately named. Never a mystery.
Oh a small aside. I always knew them as jimmies. I was in high school before I heard people call them sprinkles.
How was your weekend?
We went to Ikea which is a most the day affair. We only ended up getting a rug for the bedroom. Still haven't found one for the dining room which we really need (it is in our lease! 50% floor coverings)Sunday we had a meetup with a Flickr friend who was in town from California! This was the second time we got to see her. This time she has a baby. The cutest baby ever too. Yesterday was my Wardrobe Remix 5th anniversary actually. I met so many amazing people from there. Many of you!
