I am starting a new series of outfits I have worn!
This outfit was worn last week to an upscale work event that included a rooftop cocktail hour and a sit down dinner. It was a lovely event, and the weather was perfection…but let’s get to the good stuff:
First things first, this outfit is solely from Forever 21 (not sponsored) and under $70!
This Ribbed Turtleneck Sweater is a go-to in my wardrobe. It’s a perfect fall staple that can be easily dressed up or down. And this one is only $12!
My Floral Print A-Line Skirt looks way more expensive than it actually is. It’s cut and fullness provides such vintage glamour. I found this one for only $30!
These Faux Suede Pointed Pumps were just what this outfit needed. They were as cute as they were comfortable, which is a must for these dancer feet of mine. I bought them for $20, but they are on sale now for $14!
The earrings were passed down to me from my mom. I almost went with a statement necklace, but I think these earring completed this look perfectly.
My makeup definitely had some stand out products.
First, I used my Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection with Champagne Pop for my highlight (classic… #YouTubemademe) and Flowerchild for blush. This combination is great for events. The blush is not over the top, but it brings a gorgeous flush to the face. Champagne Pop is a peachy gold highlight that adds so much glamour to a full face of makeup. I have to be honest, this highlight doesn’t look as great on my fair skin without some bronzer to balance it out. For events like this, that’s not an issue, but for everyday, I reach for other highlights.
Next, for lips I chose Kiss Kiss Bang Bang by Marc Jacobs. It’s a beautiful baked rose color with a creamy, comfortable formula.
My scent for the night was Something Wild by DEREK LAM 10 CROSBY. Every time I wear this, people ask me what I am wearing. I’m obsessed with this fragrance! It has quite a steep price, so for now I’m making this sample last as long as I can, but I’m sure it will fine it’s way into my collection.
Then on my nails, I wore essie Nail Color in Penny Talk. It’s a stunning rose gold color with a metallic finish. This polish does chip, so be sure to wear a top coat and be gentle with your nails, but the color is worth it.
And lastly, I wore a new set of lashes by Tricky Hair Extensions. These brand new, 3D Mink lashes really made my eyes pop and steal the show! They are very soft and easy to apply, however next time I wear them, I will need to trim the edges because they were a little too long for my eyes.
They can totally be dressed up or dressed down. I took this picture while I was getting ready, and they looked gorgeous even with a more natural, daytime look.
Here they are close up on my eyes.
They taper quite beautifully at the ends making them look like real lashes.
Here they are in glam mode. Aren’t they stunning?! I definitely felt pretty in them at my event.
