Style Sunday: Polka Dot Dress…

Hey guys!

I’m back again with another edition of “Style Sunday”. This one features a steal! As I was perusing the shelves at my local H&M I saw this cream coloured dress with black and brown polka dots on it. I just looked at it and decided it was ugly! But I have a thing for “ugly” patterns and prints. Something about them just calls to me, as was the case with this dress!

This dress is made from polyester material. It has three quarter length sleeves and its length reaches just below the knees… on me that is ( I’m only 5’3 1/2!) It tapers in at the waist to help give the dress some shape. This dress also boasts a large keyhole opening at the back of the dress. I however chose to keep It modest and paired It with a camisole to cover my back. I mean I’m all for a open back, but seeing as I was heading to church this morning,I felt as if modesty was key!

I woke this morning to lots of snow falling so that changed my shoe plans. I just wasn’t in the mood to wear winter boots and change my shoes when I got to church, so I opted for a pair of cognac coloured booties that I’ve had for at least a decade… they’ve got some wear and tear to them!

I felt a little fancy so I finished off the outfit with my freshwater pearl set from ” Lia Sophia” ( a gift from a dear friend as token for being in her wedding 🙂 love ya girl!)

Here’s what I wore on my face:

L.A. Girl Concealer in the shade “Fawn”
Laura Mercier  loose setting powder
Becca X Jaclyn Hill Highlight in “Champagne Pop” and “Amaretto”
Maybelline Unstoppable Eyeliner in the colour “Onyx”
MAC “Chestnut” lip liner paired with Kat Von D ” Crucifix”

 

None of the clothing I wore today is still available for purchase, but here are some links to some similar items if you are interested in recreating this look!

Style Sunday: Black and Beige…

Hey guys!

Really quick post today!

Forgive me for going missing! I have been battling some health issues ( flu then bronchitis and throat infection and ear infection) This winter season has been really kicking my butt so I haven’t been wearing much more than sweatpants and hoodies for the  past two weeks! So today, I still wanted to keep my outfit pretty simple ( well simple on my terms anyway lol)  Here’s what I wore :

Black Pencil Skirt: I purchased this at Forever 21 a long time ago. Simple slip on skirt, with some ribbed detailing.
Black Long Sleeve Shirt: Cotton shirt I’m pretty sure I purchased at WalMart! I just needed a long sleeve black top to go underneath another piece I was wearing.
Beige Vest: Long, beige cape style vest made up of a soft polyester blend material. This was purchased last year at a store called Sirens!

Shoes: Beige suede stiletto lace up mule that I purchased at Aldo back in the fall.
Jewellery : Nothing but my trusty old cross/baby ring!

Make-up was kept super simple with just some eyeliner ( Maybelline Unstoppable in “Onyx”) a light dusting of shadow ( Tartelette in Bloom Palette ) Mascara ( Maybelline Push Up Drama  In “Blackest Black” ) Foundation ( Nars in the shade” Benares”)  and to finish the look off Stila liquid lipstick in the shade “Amore” ( which is like my new fav by the way! ).  No contouring, No highlight nothing fancy ( I frankly didn’t have the energy)

So that’s it for today folks! Hopefully I’ll be back to full capacity soon… and remember….
