When shopping ladies, do not limit yourself entirely to the women's sections. I stumble across great finds in menswear. Great for the slouch, comfortably oversized look. Here's an example of something I came across at H&M today.
Grandpa-style sweater. On the hanger
On the male mannequin.
And finally, on me.
(This picture makes my legs look really short :P)
If you have extra time, browse the men's section a bit and see what you can find!
Lately, for makeup I love wearing a single taupe shadow on my lid and a peachy nude lip.
I've been loving Benefit's Lip Shine in Nudie-tude. It's just a very natural peachy nude shade. I love pairing it with MAC Freckletone because it gives me the perfect nude-y lip without washing me out.
A swatch of Benefit Lip Shine in Nudie-tude. It is a lot more sheer when spread on the lips, but as you can see it's a beautiful peachy nude.
Like I said, I've been in love with taupe shades. Here are some of my favorites.
Top: Covergirl Tapestry Taupe ($3.49)
Bottom Left: MAC Satin Taupe ($14.50)
Bottom Right: Wet n Wild Nutty ($1.99)
Nutty and Satin Taupe are darker than Tapestry Taupe. Nutty is such an amazing creamy formula and has the best color payoff out of the three.
Here are the swatches:

I love wearing fancy earrings when going out on the weekends or for special dates, but for day to day wear I've been obsessed with these round brushed satin studs in silver and gold plated. They go with just about any outfit, so they are great for tossing on to brighten up your face.
I found these mary jane wedges from forever21 for about $26 I think and I adore them. I think what I love about wearing them is that I can wear them carefree, since I didn't spend hundreds of dollars on them I don't have to worry about scuffing or marking them.
Loving stripes and although this shirt is very light and sheer I just couldn't wait for spring. To stay warm, I pair this with a bright colored button up underneath and the pop of color adds a nice touch.
I have a striped tunic that would look really cute with a bright yellow or coral cardigan and some espadrilles. Of course, it's still cold for that so I am anxiously waiting for spring to arrive.
I also have a sunhat from urban outfitters that's been hibernating on my coat rack. I can't wait to start wearing this, it would look good with the striped tunic as well.
Another item I've been dying to wear are these kimchi&blue strappy heels I got from urban outfitters. It would look perfect with shorts or a flowy skirt. Ahhhhh spring come quickly please!!
Happy Valentine's Day Greetings from Mickey!! This day should have been spent doing what you love, with the people you love. Whether it's a romantic dinner with a special someone, staying in and watching a movie with your best buds, shopping with your mom, or just spending some time at the park with your pet. There are no rules to what you should do on Valentine's Day, no one should ever feel awkward or left out on Valentine's day. It's really just to celebrate love, life and happiness. Should not be stereotyped as anything else. Also, try to avoid the consumer aspect of Valentine's Day.
This year, my honey and I had a quick and quiet dinner at restaurant in Pike Place. Here is my eye makeup for the evening. Simple cateye and falsies. Ont he rest of my face I wore Dr. Jart's Gold Label BB Cream, Too Faced Snow Bunny bronzer, and a MAC lipstick in Angel (my first and favorite MAC lipstick). I do not get to wear blush often because as you can see in the picture, I get this natural flush on my cheeks already (which I really wish I didn't have).
I ordered a pasta dish (I could live off of pasta!).
We agreed no presents!! Because I am unemployed at the moment and because we both have everything we really need. But, he broke our pact and bought me a small shoulder strap marc jacobs clutch. I have been searching for a clutch for the longest time and it was so thoughtful of him to give me something I can really put to use. We go out on the weekends frequently, so this will be perfect for it. I was so surprised and happy with the gift, because it is exactly what I was looking for. He spoils me. I feel bad I didn't get him anything. poop. But, I love him so so so so much!
Finally I was able to pick up the OPI Black Shatter polish from ulta. I tried it on as soon as I got home and love it! It's so fun to put on and really gives you more to play with from nail polish colors you already have.
Spring/Summer Picks for Shoes
MIA Manchester Wedge Pump. (I think that's the name lol)
Great feminine shoes for when you're wearing skirts, shorts or dresses. I love to wear these with cropped pants as well.
Swedish Hasbeen peep toe pumps. Again, a great pair to wear with shorts, skirts and dresses. The wood part is kind of fragile so I have to be careful not to nick them against steps and such. I love wearing these with socks during colder months as well.
Vintage Dexter Loafers (Got them for like $25 off ebay)
When I don't feel like wearing heels, these are my go-to shoes. They look great with just about anything. I highly recommend getting a pair of loafers, they just add a cute boyish touch to any outfit.
Wedges I got from Forever21 I think. When I think of spring and summer shoes, I think of wedges. I think every girl should have a pair. I love wearing these with high-waisted full skirts, cropped pants, dresses and of course shorts. I think this pair ran around $20.
Spring/Summer Picks for Fragrances
Just some of my picks, however, there are no rules to what perfumes you should wear seasonally.
Daytime picks(left to right):
Burberry Summer by Burberry: Fruity Floral scent
Chloe by Chloe: Powdery floral musk
YSL Parisienne by Yves Saint Laurent: Very fruity rose scent
Lolita Lempicka by Lolita Lempicka: A very unique mysterious scent. A bit musky and hard to describe. Reminds me of Tim Burton films.
Spring/Summer Picks...To Be Continued...
And of course, a spring/summer must-have...
I haven't tried this product out yet, but it was recommended by a friend so hopefully I will look beautifully tan when spring and summer come around.
Tall and tan, and young and lovely, the girl from Ipanema goes walking, and when she passes each one she passes goes aahhhhhh
Mickey's hair is growing back pretty well. Looks like he will be fluffier than he was before his haircut! My baby loves to pose for the camera :)))
