Striped Dress and a Pink Blazer

Stripes & pink_1 Stripes & pink_2 Stripes & Pink_3

Wearing:

Forever 21 striped dress (It was only $12! There's a similar one here and a fit and flare version here.)
Zara pink blazer
Vintage velvet purse
Vintage pearl necklace (made up of tiny faux pearls)
Dollhouse pumps
Dior Glossy 1 sunglasses
Mac "Gel" lipstick and "Florabundance" lipgloss

My boyfriend is a superhero.  This dress sold out in my size at every Forever 21 store in the Bay Area (yes...I actually called each and every one.  Don't judge).  All except one.  An hour away, mind you.  And he went out and hunted this dress down.   Since then, it has completely sold out in every size (Sorry, ladies.  But check the links above to find better alternatives).  I haven't been able to wear this dress as much as I swore that I would.  It's been entirely too cold.  But on the day that these pictures were taken, it seemed as though Spring had finally sprung.

Do you like my nude lips?  I used to wear nude lips ALL the time.  Florabundance lipglass from Mac, Gel, and Hue lipsticks (all from Mac) were my favorite.  But once I started trying out colored lipsticks I was hooked.  And I forgot all about my nude lipsticks.  I need to start wearing them more.  Gel is a really pretty color!  It's frosted and looks amazing with a little bit of Florabundance.

  25. First of all, you have the best boyfriend in the world. Second of all, I love the nude lips. You did it so subtly, because nude lips often end up looking too 'caked on'... And I LOVE the pink blazer. It's such a beautiful color.

    Oh, and I'm super jealous of your legs. Damn you!!

  29. I LOVE your outfit, this dress is perfect on you, it's very flattering to your amazing body figure :-) and it's cool your boyfriend helped you with the dress hunt...my husband is the same, we love them also cause they support us, right ? Haha ! I like the pink blazer and I prefer a bit of color to nude lips as well now, especially in the pics I found out it looks better ! Kisses

  34. Orale. Nude lips! I like them on you but I look like a sick dumbita with them. I tried it once. Didn't work out. What a sweet man, hunting down that dress! I bet it makes it that much more special to wear. Nacho bought me Hello Kitty pajamas on Ebay once cause they HK collection had sold out. I figured it out because I saw his recent searches on ebay before they arrived. oops. Still appreciated it though. much love.

  36. LOVE this look. I'm obsessed with stripes. Whenever I walk into a store, I always gravitate towards them. It's starting to be a problem. ;) You look fab!
