What I'm Wearing #7 + FOTD!

Hey y'all!

I wore this outfit a couple weeks ago & wanted to share. I recently made a few purchases from Lulu's & have fallen in love with their clothing! Everything I bought is so well made & the quality is amazing. Their prices are fairly reasonable. I bought a few items from their sale section. The only problem I have is that the fit is just slightly off. I don't consider myself a super skinny person. I think I'm pretty average.

For instance, this romper I am showing y'all was purchased in a small. The measurements on the website made it sound like it would fit perfectly, yet the romper is just a touch more loose (specifically in the waist) than I had expected. I added a belt which made me feel better about it. Too bad they don't have a physical store. Otherwise, I'd be in heaven!

I will do a haul video later but overall, I'm pleased with my purchase. I'm not at all turned off from purchasing from the site again despite the fit issue (unlike Yuna's Closet which I will never purchase from again). I highly recommend Lulu's if you're looking for something high quality & classy!

Outfit: Fluttery & Nautical

Hey y'all!

First let me just say hallelujah for having my computer back & working properly! I was besieged by viruses & malware.... dang porn sites.... *I joke I joke!* Thankfully, my IT guy at work was able to clean my computer for me... otherwise I was about to pay a couple hundred dollars (that I'd rather hold onto mind you) to Geek Squad. Anyways, lessoned learned. I think I deserved them since I was snooping into Mike's past again... and the universe interceded & taught me a lesson! I also bought an external hard drive. I almost cried over the thought of losing a few years of pictures and memories!

Anyways... I digress..

I've done a little shopping over the past month or so. This video describes a few things I bought that I put together in an outfit.



Top - Yuna's Closet, Shorts - Lulus, Nude Slingbacks - Asos




Hehe... dorkie moment :)





Model 21 Lashes

I was kindly sent a few boxes of Model 21 lashes to try out. This particular pair is their #11 lash. I'm pleasantly surprised by the quality. Their lashes are made from human hair & these particular pair are super soft feeling. The come in packages of 10 pairs. The #11 lashes remind me of MAC's #7 lashes.

I'm wearing just some liner on the top lashes.... no liner on my bottom lashes.




Sleek Palette

I recently did a swap haul with a nice girlie from the UK, CStarforth on YouTube. She sent me the Sleek Palette... I'll do a video soon. I'm also wearing a lippie from the UK... Loving it!




MAC Jade Dragon Nail Polish

I bought this polish online from MAC's Nail Trend F/W '10 product launch. I thought a bunch of the colors were super pretty, but decided to buy only one. I'm not a fan of the consistency at all. It's pretty goopie. But I could not say no to this particular color after seeing it on All Lacquered Up's blog. I wish I was better at painting my nails, but I save a lot of money doing it myself. I'm using this ridge filler from Orly that makes my nails white... so you can kinda see the basecoat underneath. Grrr! Overall, the color is just too dang pretty!




A Simple FOTD

This has been my regular face of the day recently. The weather has been soooo humid and nasty (not to mention the ridiculous amounts of flooding and tornadoes in the DFW area). I change up the blush and lippie sometime, but for the most part, this is it!
