Dancing In the Rain

I think it stormed each day this week but I decided to step out and wear white today.  Why not?  I’m making more of an effort to wear more of the clothes in my closet or else I’m selling or donating them.  It’s useless to let it hang in the closet forever just because I “love” it.

Simple makeup: Maroon eyeshadow, black liner mascara and light moisturizer on my lips.

White top from Walmart (yep) and under $10.  I paired it with leggings today but I think I’d rather it with trousers or dark jeans so it’s not too casual.

How are you coping with the crappy weather lately?

Gold Fancy

This past weekend I was down in Houston, TX to see my cousin get married.  The wedding was fantastic from start to finish.  My cousin, the bride, looked amazing as well did the bridal party, groom and groomsmen.  I couldn’t help but get emotional!  With a mix of high fashion and culture, everything came together wonderfully.

I wore a dark green dress from the makers Eshakti.  I paired it with a gold clutch, pearl necklace, pear stud earrings, diamond ring and gold 40s era shoes.  I’m not usually a fan of gold because it tends to blend into my skin tone rather than showcase it but it worked for this outfit.  For makeup, I went with gold and maroon on my eyelids, black liner and mascara.  My lipstick shade was in the berry family.  I was not wearing foundation because I normally don’t wear it.

Unique, fun featured item that pairs great for your end of Spring and Summer wardrobe.  The natural tone of the image can lend itself to multiple color families, especially turquoise.  It also makes a great gift for that special someone on your list.

I Really Love Animals

Tiger earrings under $11 from Ashley Stewart of all places.  They are really heavy and I have yet to find a back that will support their weight.  I’m a bit upset but I love them too much to return them.  Sigh, the price of beauty.

They add a bit of style to almost any outfit, aside from formal wear.  I wouldn’t wear these for the Lord, but a dinner date with someone special would be fun, or even a girls night out.  This is the dress I wore it with.  Yes, that is my, “It’s a-me, Mario!” pose in the mirror.

Until next time!
