OOTN: Merry Christmas Berry!

Today's Outfit of the Night is what I wore to a Christmas Eve party. I tried to be as festive as possible by incorporating berry/cranberry shades and lots of gold sparkle. I even included my brother's OOTN in case you were curious! ;)

Nail of the Day: Christmas Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer Nails with Butter London Chancer!

Today's Nail of the Day is another Christmas nail design that I wore the actual week of Christmas. I wanted to amp things up with glittery red nails and a cute little Rudolf red-nosed reindeer to keep me company whenever I looked down at my fingernails!

Nail of the Day: Christmas Candy Cane!

I recently did a couple of nail designs to get in the festive Christmas spirit and wanted to share them with you. This first design is a simple candy cane stripe pattern over classic red nail polish.

OOTN: Black, Blue, & Gold Party!

Today's Outfit of the Night is a black and gold ensemble with a pop of bright blue! I was attending a Birthday Party, and I wanted to go for an edgy chic look, so I paired a sheer black blouse with a body con skirt and heeled boots!

Nail of the Day: Revlon Copper Penny!

Today's Nail of the Day is Revlon's Copper Penny, a beautiful gold shade with copper undertones. I can see this shade pairing well with many festive holiday and new year's eve outfits!

OOTD: Forest Green & Nude! 11/1/12

Today's Outfit of the Day is a casual one that centers around forest green fitted pants, which, because of their richer and deeper hue, are a great way to transition the color pant trend from Summer to Fall/Winter. I kept the focus on the colored pants by keeping the rest of the outfit neutral.

One of my favorite things about Autumn are the rich colors that spring up outside. Today's Outfit of the Day is inspired by all the burnt yellow, evergreen, gold, and berry colors of Autumn and centers around a mustard yellow military-style coat, riding boots, and a patterned scarf.

OOTN: 1920's Flapper Halloween Costume! 10/13/12

Today's outfit is a 1920's flapper: Halloween edition! I'm not one for scary movies and getting super spooked on Halloween, but I absolutely love dressing up and getting to be someone or something else for a night or two. I ordered a different costume, but it didn't arrive on time, so I had to put together a last minute costume for a Halloween party I attended earlier this month. I thought this would be a nice thing to share in case any of you are looking for a good last minute costume! 
This costume features the signature flapper fringe dress, red lips and makeup, and pearls!

OOTD: Victorian Wedding! 9/29/12

Today's Outfit of the Day is one I wore to my friend's wedding recently. The wedding was Victorian-themed, and even though my outfit is pretty modern with a black sequin peplum dress, I channeled the classic "little black dress" and red lipstick!

NEW! Urban Decay Smoked Eyeshadow Palette: Review + Swatches!

It's no secret that I love Urban Decay shadows, so for today's post, we'll be taking a look at one of Urban Decay's newer palettes: the Smoked Palette! I held off on buying this for so long because, let's be real here, I don't need any more eyeshadows. That being said, I couldn't resist the rich browns, smokey taupes, and sultry jewel tone shades in this palette, so without further ado:

OOTD: Mustard Morning! 9/23/12

Today's Outfit of the Day centers around a pair of gorgeous mustard and blue Mary Jane color-blocked heels that I recently purchased and am so in love with! I didn't have any mustard yellow items in my wardrobe at the time, so I had to be a little creative with assembling this outfit.

OOTD: Mint Glint! 8/24/12

Nail of the Day: Urban Outfitters Smush and Dust! 8/24/12

Today's Nail of the Day coincides with my current mint obsession and features two Urban Outfitters nail polishes, which are new to me.
2 Coats
The two Urban Outfitters nail polishes that I used were Smush (mint color) and Dust (shimmery blue with chunky silver glitter.) The formulation of these polishes was smooth and very opaque. The polish wore about one week on my nails before it began to chip, which I consider very good. As a bonus, the polish came off almost effortlessly with nail polish remover; even the glitter wasn't as difficult in removal as some glitters can be. I am loving the blue, glitter polish, Dust. It is a very close dupe to the much more expensive Deborah Lippmann polish in Today was a Fairytale ($16.) These polishes retail for $5 or 2/$8, like I scored.

What's your current favorite nail polish?

Face of the Day: Pacific Blue! 8/16/12

Today, I decided to play up the lower lash line with a pop of periwinkle blue!
