So…probably should have worn/posted this combo sooner, as it would have been perfectly apt for Canada Day (or with a dash of blue, Independence Day) – oops! Anyhoo, I didn’t, so…idea for next year? Yeah, that’s it 😉
I attended yet another wedding this past weekend, and had my outfit planned for weeks – a pretty, floaty, white patterned dress I scored for less than $30 at Forever21 when I was in Ottawa in May. Since the dress was a bit busy, I wanted to keep my mani/pedi fairly basic. I settled on a classic combination of red (American Apparel’s Downtown LA) on toes and a soft white (China Glaze Dandy Lyin’ Around) on fingers, which both looked classy and event-appropriate. Have a look:
Red generally isn’t my first choice of polish color, but in this instance I liked the way it looked a lot. Dandy Lyin’ Around is a great white for darker skintones, but it is a bit fussy, admittedly. However, it served its purpose!
Now…aside from the polishes, I must point out something else – THESE SHOES. DUDES. I bought them from Aldo to wear with my dress, but they didn’t really suit it at all. However, I couldn’t bear to return them, because they were on sale and they are just MARVELOUS. Revel:
Oh YEA. Sexy, sexy, sexy. I need to find a time/place to wear these, stat. As it stands now, they just sit in my closet looking tantalizingly fabulous…they’re taunting me, and I’ve only had them for like, five days. But I’m attending a bachelorette party this weekend (yeah…another wedding. Does anyone else have this many in life, or am I an anomaly?) so I think I will have to bust ’em out then. Amazingly they don’t seem to be uncomfortable at all (though I’ll get back to you after I wear them dancing for hours…).
Oh yeah. Those babies are getting worn ASAP!
What awesome purchases have you made lately that rocked your world?
