Fab Friday

Friday, July 16, 2010

I love having Friday night plans - starting the weekend off with a bang.

Tonight we're heading to a 21st birthday celebration. And I'm realizing that I haven't been to a 21st birthday party in ages. It's going to be fun! And shenanigans free - this sweet young gal has never had a drink and doesn't plan to start. Glad I'm friends with her parents; I plan on stealing some of their techniques.

So here's a little preview of what I'll be wearing tonight:

RJ told me to pose with the skateboard so I would look "cool".

Didn't really help much - as seen here in exhibit B:
There really is only one hip person in our household. And he married my book-nerdish self.

I absolutely love this dress. I picked it up from Macy's off of the clearance rack. It's comfortable and stylish. and I love that I can dress it up or down.

Dress, Macy's
Belt, f21
Shoes, Anne Taylor
Cardigan, thrifted

When trying to take a close up of the flower details I snapped this awesome self-portrait.
The little man has been waking up earlier than usual and it's taking a toll on sleep-loving me. I need to cover up those dark circles. But when it comes to make-up I'm like a Glee club member on the Cheerio's squad - bedazzled but totally freaked out. (Just started watching Glee - LOVE!) I'm still wearing the face make-up I bought for my wedding 6 years ago (pretty sure that's not okay.) So, what do you do about dark circles?

Oh, and 7-24 House update coming soon! I just need to clean my bathroom so I can take some finished pics.

I am SO with you on the dark circles and being clueless about makeup. I have actually taken to asking people what they are using because I really need to do something...like get more sleep! ha, ha!

Lovely dress. And you look cool on the skateboard. I think the one time I tried to 'stand' on one of those I fell on my dairy-aire. So good work.

Those flowers really make the dress. Just a little detail to make it special! Have a ton of fun tonight!

This outfit looks so HOT and I wish I had your hair - I could never wear it that long without looking fuzzy.

I am sure you will have a wonderful evening looking like this!

I want EVERYTHING you're wearing. Love the dress and the shoes and they're perfect together.

And for dark circles, I suggest bare minerals. I LOVE them. And they cover up everything. And it's super light and lasts forever and ever.

Dark circles... gotta love em... in the past I have used an under eye concealer from sephora. I think it is called 24/7 comes in a purple tube. Worked great! I also have an eye cream from body shop with vitamin E. It's supposed to reduce puffiness and dark circles. I don't use it consistently but if I did I might actually see results
