It’s been a while. How are you? Life’s been a little crazy to say the least, but here I am. Back with an outfit. It’s been driving me nuts that I haven’t had a chance to blog. Not to mention the early darkness that makes getting home in time for pictures not so easy! Anyway, enough blither. Enjoy my black outfit that I wore out for one of my birthday dinners. People think that all black can be boring but I think not. Mixing textures and hues adds interest and you can’t go wrong for a night out in the sultry shade.

Check out my makeup too. My eyes are courtesy of e.l.f Cosmetics as part of their #elfbeautysquad for their #playbeautifully campaign. I’ve seen e.l.f in the store before but had never indulged. I have to say I’m loving the Everyday Smoky Eyeshadow Palette and the Illuminating Palette is amazing!

Birthday Black and e.l.f

Happy Halloween! So not my thing! That said, my husband and I attended a benefit this past weekend and had to come up with something! I was going for hipster but I’m honestly not sure if it came out as hipster, or grunge or something combined. My husband has been told that he could be any of the characters on The Big Bang Theory so he went for Leonard Hofstadter. I think he was spot on!

Hipster and Hofstadter

I’ve been coveting this sweater for so long. Finally it went on sale with an extra 25% off. Mine! It’s chunky and has a cowl neck but it’s sleeveless so I won’t melt (I’m always way too hot) and the colour is so of-the-moment and fall friendly. How perfectly do these boots go? They’re ancient but the fringe is so hot right now so a staple they will remain for the time being.

The Cowl Effect

Literally and figuratively. Ha. Anyhow… let’s just say I was skeptical of pulling off this trendy flare thing. First of all, I’m short. Second of all, just not sure. Flares are typically made for people who must be 7 feet 2 inches tall because most of the ones I’ve tried on are just ridiculously long. My favourite sales person at Free People assured me that I could pull it off and that she had a pair that would work. These are made with a raw hem so that you can cut them to any length. I tried them on with the highest heel I figured I would ever wear with them and cut them to fit those. Past that, let ‘em drag on the ground and fray a little more. What do you think? Did I pull it off?
