Little Black (Lace) Dress

LBD_1 LBD_2 LBD_3 LBD_4

Black lace dress:  Vintage (That guy in the background was a total creep, btw)
Cropped pink cardigan:  French Connection (I love the metallic gold sheen and the ruffles!  So girly)
Black bow pumps:  Dollhouse
Quilted leather purse:  Not labeled (given to me by my friend Annie)
Sunglasses:  Dior
Lipstick:  MAC lipstick in "Dear Diary" (very similar to the ever popular "Candy Yum Yum")

Hi everyone!  I finally got a chance to wear my LBD that I purchased years ago.  I've only worn it a handful of times.  Can you believe that I've had this dress for about 10 years? I bought it at an estate sale.  I actually didn't really want it and my mom made me buy it.  She told me that I'd love it one day.  She was right.  But for the past two years or so this LBD has been sitting in my closet.  Poor thing.  I tend to neglect some of my clothing sometimes.  This super soft, cropped cardigan is also one of those items.

I also got a chance to wear my new lipstick "Dear Diary", from MAC.  Although this deliciously vibrant pink color is sold out in stores,  you can find many of them on eBay.  Be prepared to pay a little extra for it.  This lipstick is a very Barbie-esque pink hue.  One thing that I don't necessarily like about it is that it's very dry.  But it's nothing a little bit of chapstick underneath won't fix :)   I loved the color and it is very similar to "Candy Yum Yum."  The pictures don't do this lipstick justice.  It's actually much more saturated in person.

Hope everyone has a wonderful week!  Thanks for reading and a big WELCOME to my new followers! :D

xoxo
