Burgundy Fall

Since I didn’t get to post yesterday I am going to post my outfit today from yesterday. Burgundy my color for this season. The color looks so nice with my skin tone and it is just the perfect color for autumn. Dark colors reminds me of the “darkness” of the season, I don’t know how to explain it but dark colors just associate with the cooler months. Oh, and I really wasn’t able to get good pics yesterday so excuse them.022

Here is a close up on my Jeffrey Campbell’s that when I got them in the mail I almost cried!

I swear it is hard to find the lita boots. When I did find a few pairs that I wanted to purchase they went out of stock like that! I had to look high and low for them!
003
Oh and this dress is longer than this Haha! I had problems with pulling it down all day long, and I don’t know if wearing this outfit works for me, maybe not the boots with it. Kinda looked bulky.

Houndstooth on Houndstooth

So I tried something new today, something I had never done before and always wanted to try. I put the same print together but, the scale of the print was different. What do you know I liked it!010
Houndstooth Sheath Dress-H&M
Houndstooth Blazer-Banana Republic
Houndstooth Heels-shoes I have had for years
Purse- Dooney and Bourke
Beret-I have had for years
I have seen people do it whether it was in a magazine or another blogger and I like the look it gives. It kind of messes with your eyes and it is sort of…catchy! I don’t know how to explain it but it is definitely different.

Here is how the prints look together up close:

If I was going somewhere fancy I would of wore this cute fascinator I got from Icing. Icing is amazing, it is affiliated with Claire’s so you know it has good stuff. Also the stuff isn’t kiddish like some of Claire’s items, it is for an older crowd.

Leopard mixed with Military

These military leggings from express are all that. The color, fit, and the look are amazing and couldn’t of wished for a better purchased. I was going to wear them with the peach colored button-up that is on a previous post, my fur vest, my burgundy floppy hat and my Jeffrey Campbell lita boots. But instead I wore my leopard sweater and studded flats. The studs on the flats bring out the military style even more. And since I need to go jewelry shopping, I threw on my black lace scarf as an accessory.004

I would like to buy some more military inspired clothing because I really don’t have a lot of it in my closet.

Life is too short not to Look Good Everyday

I came to a conclusion that…life is too short not to look good everyday. One day I was inside my head (like always) and thought: “hmmmm why not dress up all the time?! (or most of the time I know we all have our bum days). Who just wants to wear jeans and a t-shirt everyday? That gets old and boring.” I sometimes wonder how do people wear jeans and a t-shirt all the time. I know everyone is not into fashion but why not dress up here and there? Anyways today was another fabolous outfit thrown together.

Feeling Good

So happy it is officially fall!!!! Woke up happy and wore one of my fall outfits. I love this look, it’s one of my “parsian” type outfits. The black and white with a hint of red really sets off the outfit, oh and the poodle loafers. Here is a pic of what they look like up close.

Do you see how happy I am? Haha I have been happy all day today. I know when I feel cute or I am dressed up, I feel better about myself. Just something about looking good.

Fall Make-Up Wishlist

Besides fashion, I am also into my hair and make-up. I mean you can’t dress nice and have your hair look a mess. Sometimes putting on make-up with an outfit makes the look pop out even more. When I get really dressed up I make sure the hair and face are on point! Anyway here is my beauty wishlist:

1.001
015
016
MAC Dominate, Crème de la Femme, and Viva La Glam 1 Lipsticks

2.002
018
OPI A-Piers to be Tan and Don’t Pretzel my Buttons Nail Polish

3.017
Too Faced Return of The Sexy
I’m really into the dark colors this year and personally I don’t wear (whether clothes or make-up) dark colors. But this season is all about going outside the box! Also my new favorite nail colors are neutrals and browns! OPI San Francisco line is fab! I would of never thought to wear brown nail polish but that A-Piers to be Tan is a nice color. I think it could work with many skintones.
