Details: navy Emmaleigh dress in Super 120s (worn as a skirt), J.Crew; gold lamae button down shirt, J.Crew (last seen here); fair isle turtleneck sweater, J.Crew (old, but cute vest here); pattern tights, J.Crew; peep toe pumps, Banana Republic; pave bow ring, Coach
Okay, a slight exageration. But it’s cooooold in SoCal today so I piled on as many layers as I could without looking like that kid from A Christmas Story (I can’t put my arms down!). I’m wearing a navy suit dress as a skirt, plus some pieces I’ve had forever. So far, so good: I am warm and cozy in my office! We’ll see how long that lasts. I had fun with the various colors in this sweater: brown tights and shoes, navy dress/skirt, and cream/gold shirt. And my nails just happen to work too. Love when that happens.
I was *very* well behaved at the mall yesterday with my mom. I returned this Chanel powder to Nordstrom (pretty disappointing and definitely not worth the $70 price tag!) and picked up a bag I’ve been salivating over. My mom and I also popped into the Coach store and I could not help buying this darling bow ring! I did resist buying this amazing hot pink bag, so I think a ring is pretty good. (Let’s not talk about the $100 off a $300 purchase coupon I just got in the mail…)
I also picked up this new Silky Sensual Radiant Lipstick (how’s that for a name?) that I’ve been eyeing, which has been unavailable on Sephora’s website. I’m wearing #12, Forbidden Burgundy. I agree with all the reviews: this stuff is super creamy and the color is gorgeous. And not at all long lasting. I’m not sure if I’ll keep it yet, but I have a hard time finding darker lipsticks that aren’t too brown, and this color is so pretty… we shall see.
Happy Monday, readers!
