xmas tips

While I love this shade of OPI (Smitten with Mittens), OPI’s wear generally sucks. Notice all the chipping:

But instead of touching up or repainting completely, I had a silly idea.

pumpkin carving purr-fection

Hey there! I’m off to a pumpkin-carving party (it’s B.Y.O.P.), so I’ve gotta make this quick, but here’s what I’m wearing:

Festive but hopefully not over-the-top!

that lavender blonde

Guys, guess what – it’s already hump day! [Insert creepster Will Schuester seduction here.] Thaaank God, Allah, Xenu, Gaga, etc.

You’ve already seen this $7 dress (maybe several times), but here you are anyway:

Yep, that’s right, $7 for a silk Simply Vera dress (size 4) on clearance at Kohl’s. I’ve already written about that before, but I’m no less proud of the score today. Tan flats: Nine West.

navy baby

Everyone have a good weekend? I did, despite spending 8 hours total on a bus – all to and from Iowa for a barbecue and joint birthday-graduation party with friends old and new. And to wear?

I went with this fun cotton tank dress from Mossimo (size M), brown leggings from No Boundaries, and teal flats from Urban Outfitters. The shoes don’t entirely go, I know, but after those Michael Kors heels on Friday – and with hours of travel in my future – I was all about comfort, plain and simple.

picnic pretty

I’ve got a forecast of 74 & sunny and, with that, picnic plans with friends downtown at Millennium Park after work – already counting down the hours, let me tell you! Our menu is “vaguely fancy European.” Jealous?

All that considered, I mixed brights & neutrals with fun details for today:

Oops! Fanhead! And I cut off the shoes. Don’t worry, they’re below, as usual. Scallop-edged brown skirt with gold emboirdery & beading: Ann Taylor Loft (size 12), turquoise cardigan: Mossimo (size S).

opi miami beet

This is one of my favorite go-to nail colors in the red-pink realm: OPI’s Miami Beet, from the South Beach Collection. It’s just so bright & juicy! OPI is definitely not as good as the Sally Hansen Complete Manicure line, if you ask me, but I did this 5 days ago (with Revlon’s Quick Dry Base Coat and Extra Life No Chip Top Coat), and it’s clearly chip-free so far.

(Also: owl ring from Aldo Accessories, green ring from Kohl’s – and the earrings and necklace were featured earlier today.)

zebra-like nail art

Got one of those Sally Hansen nail art pens (in silver) and attempted some sorta zebra-like stripes:

Base is two coats of OPI Sapphire in the Snow, a deep blue-purple that I love. I think my left hand looks a bit better, considering I’m right-handed.
