Day 107: Both Sides Now

I have been tucking a little money away for over a month now to save up for my new pair of Jeffrey Campbell black Lita shoes. I FINALLY got them and am SO thrilled with them! I also am obsessed with my new lipstick. I'm always wearing lipsticks that are super bright and saturated, but I really wanted a shade that was in the brown family for Autumn. I went to the MAC store last week and they helped me pick out a shade that worked for my coloring. Browns and taupes are tricky sometimes so I definitely recommend going somewhere where you can try on different shades and experiment!

Day 106: Curiouser and Curiouser

I present to you my Halloween costume this year :) I hated all the ones in the stores so I made my own!

"If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary-wise; what it is it wouldn't be, and what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?"

Halloween was a wicked awesome time ;D My brother and I took our little cousin, Damien, trick-or-treating for the first time with his mommy. I also, made little bite-size cake ghosts, hot grape and cranberry spiced juice, and a little fall-themed centerpiece!

The Breakdown:
  • Blue Dress: An old prom dress from Goodwill that I cut above the knee-$10
  • Striped stockings: Spirit Halloween Store-$8
  • Shoes: Target: $8
  • Apron: A curtain on clearance from Walmart that I cut-$8
  • Black hair ribbon: Walmart-$1
  • Hot Pink Lipstick: Urban Decay via Sephora-$19

Day 105: A Case of You

The proportions look a bit off in these photos, not sure why. You get the gist though...Oh, and you should check out James Blake's cover of a Joni Mitchell song called "A Case of You." :)

I have some boot cut jeans that I just don't feel like wearing usually. They kind of seem out of style at this point (though they never leave for long and will be back soon I'm sure). My solution: to roll them up about 3 inches or so above the ankle. I think it looks cute and casual in a boyfriend-jeans kind of way :)

The Breakdown:
  • White tank: H&M-$8
  • Jeans: Banana Republic-$20
  • Shoes: Toms-$54
  • Scarf: H&M-$10
  • Purse: Target-$20
