I'm Back!

Sheer blue blouse and black vest, Forever 21. Black pants, Apt 9. Zebra pumps, Delicious. Silver flower pin, thrifted. Stainless steel watch, Gucci.

I had a crazy, money-spending weekend. I purchased my new camera (Nikon D40!) on Saturday morning. Then I went to a Silpada jewelry party and bought a big ol’ cocktail ring. Next, after martinis and appetizers at The Cheesecake Factory, my friend Julie watched as I rang up purchases at Sephora, Lush, and Forever 21. It was an expensive day.

Do you remember me coveting Fashion Lady’s sheer, blue, tie-neck blouse last spring? She bought it at New Look in London and I’ve been searching for one like it since last February. I went in to Forever 21 (to look at the accessories only, I swear!) and saw my holy grail of a blouse hanging there. The shade of blue isn’t as intense as Fashion Lady’s but the color and style is close enough! I also like the tuxedo ruffles, puffed sleeves, and the matching cami.

I bought a brow powder/wax kit in auburn. I've been using a clinique eybrow crayon, but I'd like to try powder and I'm hoping the powder/wax kit will last longer than the crayons. They seeme to run out quickly, and without warning!

I love those zebra shoes. I was considering getting something like that and now I'm starting to feel more and more confident that I can pull them off.

Fun outfit! I was in Forever 21 on Saturday and the lineups were crazy - both for the dressing room and to check out. I did find some great blouses that I will go back to try on.
