Dolled Up





{This is my typical "dolled up" face.  It's still natural but with a bit of color on my eyes and a shimmery bronzer on my cheeks as blush.  I have this fabulous Tarte makeup palette that I just love.  The colors are so soft and pretty, perfect for the natural look that I am always going for.}

{This Superstay Lip Color by Maybeline is soooo fab! The color I have on is called "orchid".  It's a 2-step application, you put the 16-hour color on first and then apply the conditioning balm.  I also added some clear gloss over for extra shine. It actually lasted all night.  I highly recommend!}


{Vintage Sequins Jacket / Black Dress ~ Style and Co ~ Macy's / Suede Belt ~ Vintage (last worn here) / Platforms ~ Bebe / Clutch ~ Topshop / Black Tights ~ Hue / Earrings ~ H&M} 

I have been DYING to wear this sequins jacket.  The minute I spotted it in the thrift store, I was in absolute admiration.  The colors are just stunning and it sparkles so; it's magical.  It was originally a knee-length dress with a full back zip going down the entire length.  I knew the dress would probably be too much so I had plans to wear it backwards with the zipper in the front, like a longer topper (to be worn over jeans and a tee), but when I had the opportunity to wear it this past weekend to a swanky holiday party in the city, I decided at the last minute that I wanted it to be a shorter, waist length jacket.  So I grabbed the scissors {gasp!!!}  ...and hacked off about 8 inches from the bottom.  I will probably have the raw edge hemmed professionally (and the zipper repaired), but I just LOVE how it turned out.

This black knit dress isn't a fave, but I decided to just look in my closet for something to wear instead of going out to buy a new dress like I had originally planned.  I found this in the back of my closet, slipped it on and remembered that I didn't like it, lol.  But at that point it was too late to do anything about it, so I had no other choice but to wear it with a smile. I also made a note-to-self: I need at least 3 basic black dresses in my closet.  It is actually really tragic that I have about 5 dresses, TOTAL.  ...this is TOTALLY unacceptable. ;) 

I also decided to stay in, save a few bucks and do my own manicure.  I went with a festive green, "Four Leaf Clover" by China Glaze. 

I just love a night on the town, isn't it fun getting all dolled up? :)


xoxo, thanks for reading!
