OOTD and makeup from yesterday.
Top: Torrid, size 3x (too big, and thus perfect for tucking into other things)
Skirt: Torrid, size 20
Belt: Torrid, size 3x
I’m also wearing some taupe flats that you can’t see… Oh well. :/ I promise I’ll start using my actual camera from now on. iPhones are terrible.
As for the makeup, I did a smoky eye with a cream color, a mocha color, and a copper color. Matched with some medium brown eyeliner. No lip color. I still need to research a little more before I forsake lip makeup forever.
So, because my friends and family know me so well, I got a bit of Torrid credit for the holidays. There’s a pretty awesome holiday sale going on right now, so I decided to use it right away! Here’s what I got:
I was desperately in need of a new pencil skirt… The only one I have is too big and has a satin lining, so every time I walk, it twists around me and the buttons end up on my butt! Also, denim makes this much more easy to dress up or down as opposed to my old black one.
Okay, well I can’t think of any other reason that I’d buy this little shrug other than the fact that it was $12. I need more browns in my wardrobe, so I guess it was a good choice. This part of my order has yet to ship yet, but it looks like it’ll be pretty comfortable.
These look much better on than they do in the picture. While I was initially just searching for some plain black suede boots (I have brown ones from Torrid that are absolutely the best boots ever, I get so many compliments on them), these happened to be on sale for nearly $30 off. I’ve never been a huge fan of fur, faux or otherwise, but these are pretty tame.
I have boot fever! These “combat” boots are pretty awesome. They are incredibly sturdy (and slightly stiff at that — hopefully they’ll break in) and have a cute rounded toe. The only other complaint that I have besides the stiffness is that damned foam crap than they like to put in the lining of all of their boots. It fits in with floppy suede boots, but it just feels weird inside of these. But still, for $40, I couldn’t pass them up.
And this is what I’m most excited about. It just looks so damned comfy and curve-defining. The only coat I own right now is a big wool cape, and I’m completely lost in all of the heavy fabric. So I think this will be a nice addition to my wardrobe. It has yet to arrive, so I’m checking the tracking number like crazy.
That’s pretty much it. Hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend (even though I’m posting this way late!).
