Lust for Nude

I'm a huge makeup fanatic and find that Sephora and MAC are my versions of heaven. I must admit, I do stick to the jet black liner on my upper lid, mascara and blush but being creative and fun is my preference. I'll probably post about the colors of eyeshadow I play around with another time, but today it's about the lips. Since I was younger I had a lust for nude lips. I hated my reddish toned lips and would put coverup on them to fade them out. My staple product now is Benefits Lip Plumper which is also great used as a primer as well. But for actual product I go for super glossy or super matte. My first fav was MAC lip glass in Florabundance. The perfect combo of peachy and nude. I've literally tried every nude lipstick or gloss I could find, see pic below lol. I honestly wouldn't have to buy another one for quite some time. On occasion you will see me in a crazy dark burgundy or strawberry colored lip. If you want to know which ones are pictured or are the best, let me know!

Ports 1961 Wrap-around sheath dress

I was browsing through Saks today and saw a lot of fantastic stuff. Their sale section was pretty great as well. It's hard to get a good feel of it when it's such a big amount and sale is never put together as perfect as it is online. So. I went online to see what was on sale. This Ports 1961 dress caught my eye. The dress looked like a BCBG one I purchased late June. This one, however, is convertible. It didn't really go into detail about it, but these were the pictures. Looks like you can remove the vest/wrap-around top. I love it. It's on sale. It's awesome. I'm still on a saving spree so only in my dreams!

Not ready to give up on Summer!

Could not resist

I feel like it's been so long since I've posted!! I've been working a lot and actually had my first full day off since June 19th this past Sunday. Other than that I've been trying to take a shopping break and even drinking break. I'm doing ok but stuff happens and when you work in retail, it's like torture.  I do work in a bar and taking a break from drinking doesn't bother me in the least.  Clearly I love shopping/fashion quite a lot. The subject of this post is a skirt!! I saw it on a rack at work ready to go out on the floor. It is brand new and I fell in love. It comes in purple, black, turquoise and a few more colors. I wanted all of them, but opted for black since I could wear it in place of my brand. It's a high waisted, sheer midi skirt that is shorter in the front and long in the back. I put it up against my window so you can see it clearer. I'm matching it with a leather belt and simple white tank and sky high heels.
