What's in My Closet (Prabal Gurung)

I had another successful trip to my favorite consignment shop. When Target had the Prabal Gurung line I wanted to get something but never did. I was looking at dresses which I normally don't do and found this dress with the tags still on! It was originally $39.99 but I got it for $19! I love the length of the dress it is just right for me. I don't want to look dowdy but I am not a mini skirt gal.

Dress: Prabal Gurung for Target
Shoes: Top Shop
Bag: Stratosphere in one of the Tower shops in Las Vegas
Bracelet: mark.
Earrings: Betsey Johnson
Necklace: Shop in Old Town San Diego

Scenery to Photograph (Lucerne Valley)

Last weekend I did makeup for a music video for LVictoria which will be out later this year. It will be a really amazing video I can tell you that. While we were on location I was able to take some beautiful shots of the clouds rolling in to the desert. It went from being super hot to very cold within an hour of time. The desert is pretty amazing like that.

When the video goes live I will put it on my blog. I was an extra in the video which was totally fun too. If you want to see other behind the scenes photos you can check out my FB page.

Here is one behind the scenes of me.

What's in My Closet (An Old Piece of Jewelry)

I'm not one to collect or be very sentimental about material things. I buy things I get rid of them and my sentiments are in my head or stories I tell. I did hang onto this cap gun necklace charm I got from an old friend when I was 17. I was obsessed with Sid Vicious and Nancy Spungeon and he bought it for me because he was too. This makes me think I should have kept all my other stuff, Tees from gigs, my old records and the clothes. Well I didn't so it doesn't matter. I thought it would be fun to do a blog post styling around the necklace with a little hint of Nancy Spungeon as inspiration.

Shirt: consignment shop no tag
Pants: NY & Co.
Shoes: Top Shop
Necklace: I would need a time machine to find out the name of the store. (South Coast Plaza Mall, CA circa 1986)
Ring: mark.

Deedee's Beauty Corner (Think Pink)

Pink is my go to lip color. I got the Avon Ultra Color Lipstick in (Hot Pink.)  I wanted something a bit darker for the cooler months. I also got Avon nail wear pro nail polish in (Viva Pink) which matches the lip color. The new soon to be released Winged Out Mascara looks like most other mascaras I use, I do like it better than my last mascara which was the Maybelline Great Lash.

Check out this super cute Double Link ring from Avon. I prefer to wear flatter rings. I love the way statement rings look, but in the real world they don't work for me. I think the ring runs a tad small. I got a 6.

You can see my lashes in this picture.

What's in My Closet (New Shoes!)

It has been awhile since I bought shoes and buying online can be really iffy. I have recently noticed no matter what shoes I wear except sneakers that my feet or legs hurt. I did order sneakers too but they were on back order. They are really cute too, red with hearts slipons.

These Downtown Wedges by Avon are very comfortable. The ankle straps don't dig into my ankles and the padding makes them more like slippers. The heel is an inch and a half and these shoes are true to size. I wore the shoes for a few hours and they didn't hurt! The ankle straps work or you can use back zip to get shoes on. These shoes will be available in about 2 weeks use code 944726 in search field to find them.

I think these shoes are pretty damn cute. What do you think?
