We're Not Exclusive is rocking a denim midi here today.  I love this look for fall (and for summer or spring).  It's an outfit that transcends the season.


And don't forget to check out this week's special co-host, Onyinye from Modavracha.  This lady has brains, beauty and great fashion sense.  She's a med student that somehow finds time to run a gorgeous fashion blog!

September Ipsy Glam Bag Review

September 15 Ipsy Bag

NYX Eye Shadow Trio (0.03 oz ~ $12): Again, Ipsy....stop sending me neutral palettes.  I only have 2 eyelids.  And this was possibly the worst one they've ever sent.  It had absolutely no pigmentation and came off in minutes.

Eau Thermale Avene Soothing Moisture Mask (0.16 oz ~$5):  I do actually like this mask.  It's not too thick or greasy and my skin felt nice and hydrated in the morning.

J. Cat Slide On Eye Pencil (Full size, $2.50): This did not "slide" on as the name suggests.  It was super dry and caused too much tugging on the eye lid to apply.  That is not good for my old lady eyes.

City Color Cosmetics Be Bold Mascara (full size, $6): This mascara was super clumpy.  I don't know if it's the applicator or the formula.

Trust Fund Nail Polish in Elegantly Wasted (Full size, $15): I love this color.  I usually don't like when Ipsy sends me nail polish, but I think this color will be gracing my piggies pretty soon.

This was actually my lowest valued (and least favorite Glam Bag) at $40.50!

Ipsy Deets
  • $10 per month
  • 5 beauty products, some full sized (2-3) in each bag
  • 1 cosmetic bag

Daytime Sequins and Chambray

Sequins and Chambray (2) Sequins and Chambray (3) Sequins and Chambray (1)
I am a big supporter and advocate of sequins.  However, it's pretty difficult to incorporate into a daytime outfit.  I said difficult...not impossible.  I am willing to test drive a few sequin adorned daytime look for my craft.  And I think my first attempt went pretty well.  I utilized an old blogger trick.  When all else fails...add chambray.  I threw in some booties, a tee, and a cross body bag to dress down the sequins.  I may have gone a little too heavy with the jewelry.  But, I just can't helo myself.

Pop the Champagne Tee: T&J Designs (exact)
Chambray Shirt: Old Navy (worn, similar)
Sequin Skirt: Shop & Apparel (similar)
Carina Necklace: Loren Hope via Rocks Box (wornsimilar)
