    OoTD – The Birthday Dinner

    Posted in Uncategorized by
    My brother celebrated his 28th birthday on the 17th of March and luckily for me, the weather was nice enough to dress for spring. Originally I had planned to wear my Peter Pan collar dress from Asos but I tried this ensemble on and fell in love. The skirt shown was originally a dress I purchased from Walmart in the summer but I had a love/hate relationship with it. I love the print of the bottom but loathed the black, zipper top and I felt it didn’t really do anything for me. I was inspired by rawrmanifesto to chop the top half off and use it as just a skirt. I’m really pleased with the results and I cannot wait to wear it more often this summer. The cat eye glasses didn’t make it out the door but they were fun to wear for picture purposes.

    OoTD – The Nurse

    Posted in Uncategorized by
    I recently became pen-pals with fellow fashion blogger Yammering Muse. In her first package to me, she included three dresses and I was ecstatic to wear them. I have always loved her style and her keen eye for cute, unique articles of clothing. Included in her package was this light blue, button-up dress. At first glance, I felt as thought it resembled a nurse’s uniform so I was a bit concerned about whether or not I could pull it off. I’m not used to dresses with such a straight cut, so I wanted to make sure I added a belt in order to keep my shape. 
    I felt this dress could go either way. I could stick to my usual pin-up inspired accessories and add red lipstick and heals or I could try pulling off cute for once. I remembered that I purchased a really adorable necklace from Penelope’s Porch on etsy a few months ago and that I hadn’t ever worn in and decided to throw it in the mix. Originally, I had a brown belt but felt it didn’t work with the black undershirt, so I switched it up with the one pictured.
    I felt very comfortable in this outfit, the material of the dress was quite easy to move in. However, it felt a bit strange to be wearing something so different from my ‘regular’ style. I think maybe next time, I’ll try and turn this around into something a bit more sexy and see how that goes. I may just go ahead and cut off the sleeves and alter it a bit. I could see this turning into a great summer and/or beach dress.

    Wet n Wild Lipstick Review

    Posted in Uncategorized by

    I usually don’t do review posts but I simply had to share this with my followers. My friend Jen (previously known at Big Suit Blog) and I were discussing the lipstick brands we use and she mentioned that she buys the drugstore brand Wet n Wild. Being a bit of a lipstick snob, I couldn’t see how a $2 lipstick could be any good but I was willing to give it a shot anyhow.

    I purchased this very cute cherry colour called 519a. I personally really love darker shades for my fair complexion. I was pleasantly surprised with the results after applying a test layer. Not only did the lipstick give me a smooth, silky finish but it actually concealed how chapped and dry my lips were beforehand. I left the colour on for the rest of the night and it remained silky and moisturized.
    If you’re looking for a cheap, long-lasting lipstick I highly suggest browsing the options given to you by Wet n Wild. I’m definitely going to go back and pick up a few more colours.
