OOTD: Bringin' Back the 90's

Top: Plain V Neck Tee
Skirt: Forever21 
Cardigan: Basic Black Cardigan 

I love that plaid skirts as becoming a thing again. I always had a secret soft spot. My skirt is actually  a "skort", if these were a skirt it would be way too short. I love that its a skort because I can feel much more comfortable wearing it. Also, can we just talk about my necklace! These tattoo chokers were the shit about 10 years ago - my bff rocked one daily. I never really wore them as a kid but couldn't resist the 90's nostalgia that is todays fashion.  I am now wondering why I never owned a pair of converse before in my life. I love them! And I need more in my life, especially the cute pink and baby blue colours.

OOTD: Casual Fall Wedding

This past weekend was a co-workers wedding, I was lucky enough to spend the day celebrating with them.  Congrats Anna & Brad! This is what I wore:

Top: plain white tank
Skirt: Forever21
Blazer: Love & Liberty
Booties: Urban Planet {similar}

I loveee this skirt and I hope I never grow out of it. It is such a statement piece and its so unique. The colour makes it easy to dress up or down. I have had this in my closet for a few years now and I plan to get a lot more use from it. 


OOTD: Jumpsuit

This one is a bit older. This outfit is from my birthday! Me & Anthony went to Medieval Times for the dinner & show. I love this jumpsuit because it looks like a maxi dress but in all reality its pants. Super comfortable and looks dressed up. 

Jumpsuit: Forever21
Watch:  Gift
Necklace: Forever21

Happy Birthday To Me 


OOTD: Army Jacket & Leather Pants

The fall weather is setting in and its time for layering and adorable fall fashion. As much as it sucks that the summer is over, the fall is the best fashion season out there. This is my first fall inspired outfit! 
Top: Urban Planet
Leather Pants: Forever21
Army Jacket: Urban Outfitters
Platform Sneakers: Charlotte Russe

These are all older pieces so I don't have any current links to share. Sorry about the cluster/mess in the background. Still working on some unpacking and organizing in that room.

Lip Factory August

1. Cult Nails Lacquer in Disciplined - This is my least favourite product this month, and it might not even get used. I am not a fan of the colour. Its a really washed out blue with glitter in it. I would need several coats to get a good finish and looks sort of sloppy to me. I wish I would have gotten one of the colours they show in the leaflet, those were much more wearable. 

2. Medusa's Makeup Stick It Eye Primer - Lip Factory uses this brand a lot, would have been nice to see different ones but over all I don't care because I like this product. I have been meaning to get an eye primer for my shadow so this is perfect. I haven't tried it out yet so I'm not sure on the quality but fingers crossed that it wrks good!

3. Pink Powder Parlor lipstick in #720 - AH I love this lipstick. This is by far my favourite item this month. The colour is just so adorable. It's like the perfect bubblegum pink colour. This is not a shade I have either. Cannot stress how happy I am with it. 

4. Red Cherry False lashes in #110 Black - Fake lashes are something I am a noob about. They look so awesome on other people when they wear them that I want to try so bad. I have a feeling I will be terrible at applying them because it looks hard. I have a wedding coming up at the end of the month I might try these out, or even for my birthday. The style of lash doesn't look too dramatic or costume so they just might work, especially for a noobie. 

5. LASplash Mineral Blush in Ring of Fire - This is such a pretty colour in the container. I swatched it on my hand and its still pretty. Its def a bit deep and dark for a blush but might work well for winter months with very natural minimal eye makeup, then a pop of colour on the cheeks. The colour is too pretty to not give it a chance.

6. LASplash Lip Lacquer in Barely There  - Another repeat brand product - that's okay because I like it. The colour is the perfect strawberry milkshake pink. It would actually layer over the lipstick nicely for a glossy finish.  It's a very easily wearable colour. 

Overall, I am certainly pleased with my box this month. Last month I was considering cancelling my subscription but I am happy I stayed on board. I decided that if I get two boxes in a row I don't like then I will discontinue. I don't want to stop then miss a really good box!
