365 DAYS OF FASHION: Outfit of the Day, Day 1

Today was one of Richmond’s chillier days.  And… by “chillier”… I mean it was around 79 degrees, with a slight Autumn wind, and on-and-off sunshine.  But don’t worry. I worked with it.  Virginia can’t take my September away!!  It’s FALL, dammit!  Ahem.  Sorry.  So I brewed up some hazelnut coffee and poured it in my all time favorite ceramic tall Starbucks cup, put on some mascara and lipstick (but of course!), grabbed the camera, and attended my own photoshoot.  (What…. you think that’s corny?  Um… Does it look like I care…?)

I thrifted most of this outfit.  The shirt and necklace are from various thrift shops on Long Island.  The ring was my mom’s (favorite ring!) and the vintage shorts are from Ashby’s Boutique in Richmond (BEST THRIFT SHOP EVER). (I’D LIVE THERE IF I COULD).

The nail polish is “Berry Blue” by Salon Perfect.  Lipstick is “Sassy Mauve” by Revlon, outlined with NYX’s lip liner in “Neutral”.

Very very very happy I found your blog. I actually was researching the Ms. Chick blushes from clean color. Your post was appreciated c: I'm also a make up junkie and If I can stay away from Tarte , Benefit , and MAC I so will. Again thank you sweety.

So glad my blog was helpful — and that you too are a makeup junkie, haha.

Love your blog! I'm looking for a drugstore pinky nude gloss. I want super shiny, any ideas? Thanks!!

I recommend any of NYX butter glosses — they have tons of colors and they’re all super shiny!

“Greed, envy, sloth, pride and gluttony: these are not vices anymore. No, these are marketing tools. Lust is our way of life. Envy is just a nudge towards another sale. Even in our relationships we consume each other, each of us looking for what we can get out of the other. Our appetites are often satisfied at the expense of those around us. In a dog-eat-dog world we lose part of our humanity.” ― Jon Foreman (of Switchfoot)

Mister, can you take me into Little Rock? / I’ll buy the coffee, and I’ll fill your truck. / I’ll listen all night if you wanna talk, / just don’t mention Memphis. / We can talk about your family, politics, / music, and philosophy, / any old subject’s all right with me, / just don’t mention Memphis. / Pass me the thermos and I’ll fill your cup, / we’ll make Texas with a little luck, / and I’m hanging with you until the sun comes up… / so don’t mention Memphis.
