{what i wore} black & blush

i often lament that i never dress up anymore. it's so easy and comfortable (both physically and mentally) to wear casual clothing and flat shoes. so when i went out with my bestie to celebrate christmas, we decided that we would hold dress up dinners at least once a month for all of 2012. here is what i wore to the first dinner:



yes, it's not overly dressy but - waaaaddup - i wore heels. this is a rarity for me these days. i used to wear heels almost every day... well, i still wear heels every day at work but it's not the same thing.


three different photos and yet my expression is the same in all of them. this frightens me.

here is what i wore:

- butter london nail lacquer in yummy mummy
- sally hansen xtreme wear nail polish in strobe light - layered over the butter london on some nails
- pink clutch (mango)
- black lace racer back tank top (walmart)
- blush pink loose tank top (h&m)
- black belt (thrifted)
- black harem pants (h&m)
- black patent leather tuxedo heels (guess)
- oversized "crystal" stud earrings (h&m)
- silver link necklace (thrifted)
- black chain necklace (chain from canadian tire)
- black oversized bracelet (walmart)

oh, and i did end up wearing black trouser socks because i didn't want to expose my foot skin to the elements.

{what's on my face}

- nyx nude on nude palette
- hard candy so baked bronzer in heat wave
- rms beauty lip shine in bloom

this is also the hair style i learned for the month of january per my 2012 goals! i used my new flat iron to create loose bouncy waves. the look still isn't as clean or polished as i would like but i think it's decent for my first try. :)

and here we are together! we went to ocho for dinner and it was pretty good. i loved the bread and the soup but my main course was just ok. the ambiance, vibe, and decor made up for it. plus the $7 wine by the glass was a huge bonus!



hope you enjoyed the look!
