The Cape Blazer Trend

The Cape Blazer
I’m a bit unsure about the cape blazer trend. I see it as a chic update to the blazer, but is it a trend that will last long? I’m not quite sure if it is worth investing in. The only way I would get the maximum use out of one of these is if I purchased it in black. What’s your take on the cape blazer?

New In! Vince Camuto ‘Halia’ d’Orsay Pointy Toe Flat- Garnet/Wine

Vince-camuto-burgundy-flats

I absolutely need a pair of wine colored flats for Fall. It is one of my must haves and has been for the last two years. The current wine colored flats I own and love were purchased from Shoemint.com about 2 years ago. I’ve worn them to death and it’s time to toss them in the gar-bahge.

However, I’ve found my replacement pair! I love Vince Camuto shoes because they are super comfy. If you don’t know now you know. These flats feel great on. We’ll be very happy together.

Cost of flats $97.95. I had a $50 gift card. Used Ebates for 6% cash back.

Happy Wedding Day!

My best friend got married earlier in the month! The wedding was beautiful and was held at the Marine’s Memorial Hotel in San Francisco. We rode a cable car through the city and took lots of fabulous pictures and made precious memories.

Here are a few pics of us taken from any iPhones. BTW I did my own makeup. Thought it was worth mentioning given this is a beauty blog. 😉

New in! Makeup Geek Eye Shadows in Neutral Shades

I received a special package today! Woot! I’m finally able to give these Makeup Geek shadows a whirl. I ordered 6 shades. Silly me did not realize I could fit 9 shades in a Z Palette.

I picked up the Z Palette from Ebay for $9. It was labeled as factory defect which is totally fine by me because there is only a dent when I lift the top to reveal the shadows. The shadows I chose are all natural shades. I desperately needed some matte shades to compliment all the Urban Decay Naked palettes I own. Each shadow was an affordable $5.99. Shipping came through First Class USPS Mail, so it took a solid week to arrive.

 

Colors in order:

Beaches & Cream

Peach Smoothie

Chickadee

Creme Brulee

Latte

Cocoa Bear

I hope these shadows are as amazing as I’ve heard. What other colors should I add to my collection?

Breakfast at Tiffany’s themed bridal shower

My BFF will wed soon! She really wanted a Breakfast at Tiffany’s themed shower so that’s what she got. It was mucho hard finding tiffany blue items so the color palette included some sky blue, accents of black and white as well.

The picture frame is from a craft store. I downloaded a pic of Audrey from Etsy. The mini Tiffany boxes are real, stuffed with shredded paper and pearl bracelets from Forever21. The velvet necklace holder is from Ebay, all other decor is from Party City and Amazon. Some other decor was purchased by another bridesmaid, not sure from where.
