Patterned tights for the win!

Standard

If there’s one thing I love about cold weather, it’s wearing cute outfits with even cuter tights! A couple years ago at Ross I found a black pair that had a leopard print and I love them. I still have them, but I know they won’t last always, so I searched online and happened upon this site who had a similar pair for about $6, and of course I ordered them.

And I love them! My only gripe is that they’re actually pantyhose and I haven’t worn regular pantyhose in so long, I forgot how fragile they are and my nails poked a hole in the thigh area when I was putting them on. My skirt was long enough to hide the hole, but I did order a new pair yesterday.

Patterned tights are a great way to accessorize and turn a drab look into fab easily! I’ve never ordered or heard of ecrater.com before I happened to find it while searching for the tights, but shipping was super fast, free, and I had no issues.

Do you guys love patterned tights too?

I tried Fenty Beauty foundation…didn’t love it

Standard

Hey y’all! Hope you all had an amazing weekend. Mine was great, but exhausting, so I’m writing this while in bed already! So, I’ve been wanting to try a new foundation for the longest. I’ve been a faithful MAC girl for years. I still like my studio fix, but I’ve just been itching to try something different. After many recommendations and so much hype, I decided to try Fenty Beauty’s foundation. First of all, I’m a powder foundation girl, so a liquid was already a stretch for me. But I tried it anyway. Yes I know I should have just gotten a sample first, but I had such high hopes that I bought it…and now I’ll be returning it.

I was told that 350 was my match…but it’s a little off. A little too dark, and I’m not crazy about the matte finish. I like to look a little more luminous. Maybe I should try another person to match me to give it another go, but I’m just not sold on it. I have no other lines to compare it to because I don’t use liquid, but I will say it was easy to apply and dried quickly. I used a beauty blender to apply.

Have you guys tried Fenty yet? What did you think? Also if you have any powder foundation recommendations, please let me know!

Shoe lover tip: shop off season

Standard

Hey y’all! It’s Friday, yay!!!! I don’t know about you, but it’s been a long week. I could hardly wait for Friday to get here. I was so excited to finally get a taste of fall, but now we’re back into the 70s and even 80s at some point this weekend here in Charlotte. I’m just ready to wear all of my coats, sweaters, and boots already! Speaking of boots, I’ve found the best time to shop for them is off season. Because the good ones are so pricey, I like to buy them in the off season when they’re cheap! 

I bought these amazeballs booties, that I’m actually wearing again today over the summer from Nordstrom Rack during one of the clear the rack sales where you get an extra 25% off clearance. They ended up being less than $15! The only thing about shopping during the off season is that you may forget what you have in your closet, so be sure to shop your closet first before going out shopping again! 

Do you guys shop off season too? It’s really a no brainer! I’ve found some great pieces over the years. Off season and clearance rack shopping is the way to go!
