YSL wedges 8.26.11
Bracelet mom made in high school 8.26.11Watch Kenneth Cole 8.26.11
starfish from bill and bob's necklace 8.26.11

Actual items depicted above
Ring, lipgloss, blush, mascara, hair stuff to smooth, more hair stuff to defluffperfume, water bottle (I am trying to bring it WITH ME. See if it helps my head. I KNOW I am dehyrated all the time. It was just out of the frame on my left)

My items
Skirt Esprit $2 in 2002 at going out of business sale. One of my best purchases ever.
Shirt Target It's new so if you like it.. run! (the one in the collage has a HILARIOUS name if you follow the link)
YSL wedges (don't they look JUST LIKE the ones above?) Mine are at least 5 or 6 years old. I got them at a consignment store for $75 and they were $600 something on the box
Bracelt my mom made
Earrings Tous
Necklace. It looks EXACTLY like the one above but mine was under $20 at Bill and Bob's I am thinking it is a Tiffany knock off. Grrr. I thought since it was sold at the beach it was just beach themed. How wrong I was.
Watch Kenneth Cole it looks very similar to the one above and it was oh $5,400 cheaper! The big difference is mine is an automatic self winding watch and in the face of mine you can see the guts instead of the mother of pearl one above. Mine is yellow gold instead of pink too.

makeup and hair detail 8.26.11

I have been so lazy lately with my hair and showering in the morning which leaves me with very wet hair, so I keep putting it up. I showered last night just so I could flat iron it today. It felt like a flat iron type of outfit. I woke up and it was a wavy fluffy mess! It was so large. After I flat ironed it I pulled out the jar of Brillant above I have had since 2007 when I cut it short and just used a tiny amount and it smoothed it all down. You have to be careful because it is very easy to go overboard with it. Infact I would NOT reccomend it on thin hair at all. Flat ironing doesn't take long at all but it does require dry hair and my hair takes a long time to dry. Last night I took my braid out at 11pm and it was still very wet in the middle since 6am. (which reminds me I haven't posted yesterdays outfit either! doh!)

Dave leaves before I do in the morning. Today he was running late and offered to give me a ride so I got him to take some pics. I gotta say I LOVE how they come out in the driveway. Just interesting enough and decent lighting. I have another one to post from the other day I forgot to I will post later.

Any plans for this weekend?

We are going to see Mike Doughty with Dave's sister. It will be my 6th(?) time seeing him, Dave's 7th. (He saw Soul Coughing in 96. We don't talk about it though. JEALOUS) And that isn't even going to all the shows we had a chance to see. We aren't huge concert people just because I mostly forget to check out who is playing when but I do love going to them.

You look great Hillary. Love those wedges. Absolutely fabulous addition to this look.

Wow...first thing I thought was "where's the library?!" I agree, the lighting and background are nice in your driveway. Hope to see more pics there!

Love your shirt. It looks like a men's tie. This weekend I have a lot going on: friends over tonight, tomorrow- birthday party (where I have to dress up as a spy for my friend's kid) and then friends from out of town over with new baby, Sunday- church and then a GIANT nap. Hope you have fun at the concert!

I really like both of this picture of yourself that you posted but when i first clicked on to your blog and saw that first picture my instant reaction was "Whoa! Sexy!!!" You really look great and if there was a Target here I would be running fast - love it.

OMG Hillary I am blown away yet again we did the same thing. That star necklace I have the EXACT star. I bought it last year. Your momma is sitting here smiling~ Love you doll. OX

I got it 5 or 6 years ago. E.V. Is the one who told me it was a copy cause she had the real one.
