Lips: Media by MAC (layered over a nude lipstick..it went on way too dark on my lips for my liking on it's own); Blazer: Gibson (Nordstrom/Nordstrom Rack)-I have three of the same blazer in varying colors and plan to get more! I sometimes dress this blazer up with a bold statement necklace and a skirt and some heels- yes I'm finally getting back into heels, but for this particular day, I got ready quickly for work and threw on some skinnys and over the knee boots and an infinity scarf to keep it casual.
OPI Red..Can't go wrong with basic old fashioned red for the holiday season!
OPI Casino Royal. This is from the James Bond Skyfall Collection, which I am obsessed with! It is the only OPI line that has come out that I want all the colors! I layered the ring finger with a multi colored glitter polish by OPI for Sephora. I also think this would look gorgeous with a gold accent nail or a half moon manicure! The best plum polish I have ever used hands down! Goes on opaque in one coat. It is also the exact color of the purse below. ;)
Jacket: Express; White Skirt: BCBGMaxAzria; Flats: Forever21; Bag: ??? I recently purchased this bag on a night out with the fiance. As we were walking the downtown Gaslamp streets heading from dinner to a bar, a small hole in the wall boutique was still open. It's like dangling meat in front of a starving lion! I can't help it! I told the fiance.."just give me a minute". Per usual, he rolled his eyes and went next door to grab a drink. This beauty caught my eye right away! I quickly paid and thew in my clutch I was already carrying.
I had on these royal blue, jeweled flats (Forever 21) in the photo above, but due to the lighting, it didn't really show the true color. I love them! Being that both of these items are on the cheaper end, I don't expect them to last past this season. One scratch on that glossy bag and it would cheapen the entire look, so I am only carrying it once in a while. But for the price and the overall look, you just can't beat it! And no one has to know they are cheap! They look expensive to me and it's all about dressing for what you can afford while feeling like a million bucks! Coworkers were surprised by both items when I told them how much they were and where they were from.
My good friend, Nicole and I used to always joke in our poor days of college, "Well we may be broke, but we look like we have money and that is all that matters!" ..oh college!
What is your favorite color of this season?
