Metallic Pumps.

While I’m on my Fall kick, something else I’m excited about is metallic pumps.  This Miu Miu pair is freaking amazing…I hope Forever21 decides to knock it off ASAP.

Miu Miu Pumps $650

My Fall Nail Colors.

I know I’m jumping the gun a bit, its not even July 4th and I’m already thinking about Fall.  But, we got to preview all of the new Fall things at Nordstrom the other day and it got me so excited for boots, big sweaters, and leather leggings (yes I’m totally buying a pair, only $37.90).  After seeing all of the color palettes I decided that green is going to be my go-to nail color this Fall.  Deep, dark, shimmery green (see Dive Bar below) is going to be on heavy rotation!!!

Essie Polish in Dive Bar, Turquoise and Caicos, and Trophy Wife, $8 each.

Chiffon Skirts.

To fulfill my maxi skirt obsession, American Apparel now has some really girly, beautiful skirts that I think are a perfect transition from summer to fall.  They come in a wide variety of colors, from baby pink to dark military green.  Below are my favorite styles in my favorite colors!

 

*Side note, what is up with these shoes???

Neon Sandals.

Perhaps I am channeling my inner-stripper by saying I like these, but I am so in love with the neon color and all the knots!!

Lectric Blue Suede Platforms, $120

Party Make-up.

June 20, 2011 § 2 Comments

I do not consider myself talented when it comes to make-up.  I wear the same tinted moisturizer, eyeshadow, black eyeliner and mascara combo almost every day, with little to no variation.  My birthday/celebration of summer *pink* party was this past Saturday.  I knew I wanted a special look to celebrate the last year of my 20s.  I had the very talented Herbert at Nordstrom do my make-up and he did an AMAZING job.  He used mostly Bobbi Brown products, along with his favorite mascara by Dior (but only on the top lashes, which I wasn’t aware of).  Here are some of the products he used, as well as a picture of the finished product.  I think my favorite part about the look was the bright pink lips.  I never wear lipstick and when I do I feel like such a grown-up!!

1. Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer & Corrector, $32.

2. Bobbi Brown Blush in Peony, $24.

3. Bobbi Brown Shimmerbrick in Golden Nectar, $38.

4. Bobbi Brown Rich Lip Color in Cosmic Raspberry, $22.

5. Bobbi Brown Shimmer Lip Gloss, $22.

6. Dior ‘Iconic’ Mascara, $28.

7. Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner, $21.

Glitter nails.

I can’t really take credit for this.  I saw a girl in Nordstrom over the weekend with her nails painted like this and I loved it!  I realized I had the colors at home to re-create it myself so I tried it last night.  I used Essie Nice is Nice (creamy lavender) and Milani Jewel FX in Gold (huge gold sparkles).  I painted 2 coats of Nice is Nice and let it dry.  Then I applied the glitter right at my cuticles.  I love the way it looks; its such a new twist to what I usually wear!

Wedding Season.

I feel like I have been to so many weddings recently.  I had my last one for a little while this past weekend.  It was all outside, and luckily the ceremony ended before the torrential downpour began (thank goodness for a big sturdy tent and a table right next to the dance floor 🙂 ).  This wedding was a GREAT time with wonderful friends, good music, and a sweet doggie who was so happy to be part of the big day.  Here are a few pictures!

Where Am I?
