I wore this to celebrate my husband’s birthday and what a better present for him to get than me with a bow on top? 😉
I think this is the last item of clothing that I bought at Bebe. I have to say that the store has become, well, not my style. I do still love this dress though and I always get lots of compliments on it.
Cardigan: Rag and Bone
Shoes: Christian Dior
These shoes are a step closer to my bright shoe resolution but I am still on the hunt for a pink or red shoe. I do love the color and the style but the only thing is they are probably one of my most uncomfortable pair of shoes. I have deemed them my office shoes only. I went shopping in them on this day and I was barely able to walk that night!
I found this ribbon in my ribbon stash (I have tons of ribbon that I was going to use for our wedding but didn’t) and decided to use it as a headband to add a pop of color to my black and white ensemble. It was easy to do and great use for ribbon that I have no idea what else to do with.
A note on my false lashes: I use very full lashes on purpose. I used to get the ones that were shorter and less full but they were no fun to me. I figure if I’m going to with fakes, might as well make them look glam! My husband actually loves my fake lashes and he encourages me to wear them. It’s just something fun to add to my look. My girlfriends that wear false lashes wear ones that are much fuller than mine. If we wanted to make them look more “natural” it would be possible but it’s all about personal taste and what you are comfortable with. I know that at first you can be pretty self-conscious about them thinking that everyone is staring at your lashes but once you get used to it, you don’t even think about it.
It’s also a reason why so many celebrities wear false lashes, it’s just something that adds glamour to an outfit. Kim Kardashian is a perfect example of really fake lashes but I think it looks good on her as it goes with her personality and the rest of her look.
