This week has been filled with a lot of excitement.. I hosted a sublime little event with Benefit make-up at the Benefit Boutique on 3rd street last night. Which was awesome BTW. Photos soon to come. The preview of the February issue of Liberating Style magazine with yours truly on the cover came out. I am so floored that they found me worthy of a cover. I found out my Bestie Courtney K. is moving to New York. I am so happy for him and so sad at the same time, so I simultaneously booked my ticket to go hang with him. Yup ..I would say the week was pretty fantastic!!
...And now FASHION FRIDAY.. Yay!!
BTW this is starting to become my favorite day of the week..
I was not lying when I said that Backstage is quickly becoming one of my favorite lines.. I fell in love with this dress the minute I saw it!! Let me will tell you why... It's not only beautiful..super feminine.. and comes in delicious buttery colors (my other favorite is the peach), but you can eat in it. I mean really eat in it!!! Meaning there is an entire layer of fabric that hides the fact that you may or may not have had the entire box of cookies with lunch and then later ended dinner with pie and ice cream.
....And I am not saying that is or isn't what I may have or may not have actually done..okay did you get that because I think I just confused myself...
I wanted to keep this outfit super simple. The dress is so perfect by itself. Thus.....Report Signature platform slingbacks that actually fit my feet (I have really narrow feet so slingbacks don't work for me) topped off with a mix of high and low costume jewelry.
This Forever 21 necklace is beautiful and was about $10 bucks and this bracelet that I snagged from Kiz Boutique in Chicago is getting so much wear. Worth every penny! It's dresses up an outfit perfectly. Vintage Chanel earrings, although I will be the first to admit that these are clip-ons and after about two hours my earlobes get numb..Ahhh the sacrifices we make in the name of fashion.
Alright lets talk a little House of Harlow. This ring is one of my favorites. I actually love, love, love it. As in want to consume it. I actually want to consume the entire collection of Nicole Richie's House of Harlow line. It's all super wearable with the perfect combo of edge and class. Pretty much just like her! ..And yes I think she is a class act! Met her once at my favorite smoothie bar..and both her and her baby girl were super nice and had bright beautiful smiles their faces.
The nails..Hmmm. I was in a tame nail mood this day...don't ask...
BTW..I have completed the chalk board wall.. The painters tape has come off as you can see and I will be writing on it as soon as I actually remember to buy chalk..
Alrighty all. Have a fabulous weekend where ever you are!!!!!
Feminine buttery colored dresses...I "Like"
