Silk Passion


I love the feel of fine fabrics against my skin.... which is probably why I love this top so much. It's such a soft and creamy pink silk chiffon. It's truly a pleasure to wear. Today I've paired it with an equally lux pencil skirt. This pinstriped beauty is shear bliss to touch and has such a cute little ruffle in the back.

Of course I have to mention my heels. These are still my favorite pink heels... and so comfortable.

Since I'm wearing pink, of course, I'm wearing my Pink Opal and Pink Pearl rings.

April Showers Bring May Flowers





I have a little thing for 50s peplum tops.... well maybe it's more than just a little thing. I've been day dreaming about having one... or more. As it turns out, I'm not the only one who is having thoughts of bygone fashions. I've notice that modern designers are too.. how fun!

I've also noticed that, more than once, I've seen a top or dress and the first thought that crossed my mind was, "Is that drapery fabric?"..... oh my!!

Well, the bottom line is that I'm in love with pencil skirts and peplum tops this Spring. What about you? 

To accessorize, I chose one of my favorite rings.
This yellow Citrine and Sterling ring is perfect! 
Find it on my Etsy shop.

Easter Outfit Options

Now that we are officially into Spring, Easter is just around the corner. The food, the family, the events.... and what are you going to wear?

As for me, I am thinking of a few options:




1. This cute linen, high-waisted skirt and silk top are my first choice. 
However, I wore the top for Valentines day, so I may 
pass on it for Easter.


2. This linen top and skirt are very comfortable 
and I love the color of the skirt but I think it needs a coordinating belt.
Sounds like a shopping trip!



3. Speaking of shopping, I'd love to get some new heels 
for this outfit. It'd be great to find That blue but
I'd settle for white.



4. Since we are just as likely to have snow for Easter, 
here's a slightly festive, cold weather look.

For some reason I'm still in a pink mood. I must not have gotten my fill for Valentine's Day.
So, no matter which of these looks I go with, I can wear my Pink Opal ring:




and I think a pink statement necklace is in order... and what bag? 
I love the holidays!! They make everything a little more sparkly.

Which outfit is your favorite?

Yellows Of March

While we still have occasional snow and loads of rain,
I'm in the mood for warmth and sunshine.
Last year I tried calling out the sun with yellow and it worked.
Lets see if I can get the same results this year.

Heels For Spring

I generally don't go for green, especially bright or florescent green but I just couldn't stop looking at these heels. The floral wedge is just so pretty.

I had decided last year to Not get any more wedges but these were just sooooo cute. I love the ankle strap and peep toe. The fabric on the wedge is laid on in a textural way that gives it even more interest and depth... though it doesn't come out in the image.

Until we get some warmer weather they will be making an appearance under jeans. That will give me time to find some loud green... ??something?? to go with them. :)

The Perfect Concealer Brush

While I was shopping for a concealer the other day I was introduced to a new brush. It was Sephora's Classic Perfection Concealer Brush #20.

The sales girl at Sephora was showing me several concealers and I allowed her to demonstrate how well they worked on my under eye area. Instead of grabbing a makeup applicator she grabs this brush. Wow! The application was gentle, amazingly blended and the concealers (specifically Make Up For Ever's HD Invisible Cover Concealer for $29) were outstanding. "I have got to get this brush", was repeated over and over in my head.... then the practical side of me spoke up with, "I wonder if I already have a similar brush at home...."

Amazingly enough I did have a very similar brush. In fact I have two. "Oh, but is it really the same", I asked and then I tried using it with wetted powdered foundation. I was shocked to find the results were outstanding.


The major difference in the two brushes is not in how they work but in what they are made from. The #20 is a synthetic brush and was so easy to clean. When we were jumping from one concealer to another the girl simply pumped some alcohol onto a cleaning pad and wiped the concealer off the brush, then on to the next brand/color. My brushes have natural bristles and are cleaned with a mild soap or shampoo, rinsed well and take about a day to dry. This experience has given me a whole new appreciation for synthetics.

So I guess that I don't actually need to get a new concealer brush since I already have one (ok, two) similar. However, if I didn't have a brush like this, the #20 brush would be at the top of my to-get list. As for the Invisible Cover Concealer... it's currently holding the first place spot.
