What's in My Closet (Fire & Dice)

I picked this outfit up at my favorite consignment shop. I made myself a deal that I would only buy a complete outfit. Sometimes I buy the coolest clothes and when I get home nothing really pulls together. So I bought the top, skirt and purse all at the same time knowing they all go together perfectly. Next time I go to Vegas I am packing this outfit!

Top: Unknown but my favorite new black top
Skirt: Simply Glamorous
Shoes: Top Shop
Bag: Miche
Necklace: Burkes

What's in My Closet (California Layering)

We are about to get a dash of Fall weather it will be in the 70's and 80's. I know in some parts of the world you would love to enjoy longer summers so I try not to be ungrateful.  This outfit is something I would wear for an evening out to the movies or a casual dinner. This area is very casual. It is even too casual for me. What is it like in your area casual or dressed with a purpose?

What's in My Closet (Fall Florals)

I have to admit I am not a floral kind of girl. Don't get me wrong I love flowers, but it isn't a pattern I look for on clothes or furniture. With that said I do have a skirt with embroidered flowers that I bought on a trip to NYC about 9 years ago. I styled it two ways. Just with a black tee and then I added a military inspired vest. Which way do you like better?

Tee: Zenna Outfitters
Vest: Angel Kiss
Skirt: Twenty One
Bag: Laurel Burch
Earrings: Betsey Johnson
Shoes: Stonefly
Sunnies: NY & Co.
Necklace: Consignment Shop

What's in My Closet (Cute Little Blazer)

I picked up this little gem at my favorite consignment shop for $5! To stay true to my fashion comfort level, I styled this with my favorite Jeans and Tee. To Jazz it up I added these socks I got in a Birch Box about two years ago. I really love these shoes and like to mix colorful or crazy socks with them. What do you think?

Deedee's Beauty Corner (e.l.f. Vampire Beauty Book)

I spotted this Vampire e.l.f. set while in Target. I picked it because of the Fall colors. It has Rusts and Plums mostly. They do have 3 other pallets and I think they are worth checking out. The eyeshadow pigment was good and I can use this for everyday, as well as Halloween. The other three pallets are Enchanted, Wicked and Diva. The eyeliner is actually good and the lip gloss is very sheer. I was hoping for more pigment on the gloss.

Which one is your favorite?

What's in my Closet (First day of Fall Fringe)

Now it is officially Fall! In my area our weather is still warm. The high for today is 91. It will start to cool down at the end of October. The temperature will fluctuate from the 70's to 90's between now and then. Luckily it does cool down at night.

I have been digging in my closet looking for Fall fashion and pulled out these mark. pants from a year or two ago. They are still a favorite of mine. I paired these pants with this super cute fringe top I picked up at my favorite consignment shop.  I love fringe and how it moves when I walk. The casual girl in me loves the fact the fringe is actually on a black Tee shirt.

Top: Forever 21
Pants: mark.
Bag: Coach

Deedee's Beauty Corner (Control Corrective Crystal C Serum)

I picked this serum up at a Control Corrective class I took for Jessner Peels. I tend to work on tightening and lifting serums for my face but my neck and chest suffer from sun damage. I have lived in California most of my life and have spent years in the sun. I unfortunately spent time in tanning booths while working in a salon for four years. So I do have sun damage. Vitamin C is helpful to reverse sun damage. I like Control Corrective products because they are products that produce results beyond what you can buy at the store. I have been using the Vitamin C faithfully for about 3 weeks and my skin does look improved and feels healthy to the touch. I use this product am and pm everyday. If you are young with little or no sun damage use sunblock. Do it for your future self. Well everyone should use sunblock regardless of your age.
