I was super late for work this morning coz I wanted to wear this fancy outfit. I ended up messing it up and let my hair down in the end...argh! One of those days when things don't work out. But I was happy with my makeup. I did a chocolate brown and strawberry look on my eyes and one of my berry shades, MAC Craving lipstick, on my lips!

It's almost weekend! Hope you all enjoy it. I have a tone of events to attend so it should be a fun one :)

I wore this dress by BCBG to work today and got so many compliments on it. I love it as it's very flattering on my big chest yet sits nice on my smaller waist. I'm always looking for styles that minimize my top and this one is perfect! The older I get, the more I want to look sexy without revealing much. It's funny that people are always looking to achieve the hourglass figure and there are a tone of dresses that create that illusion. Yet for us folks with a natural hourglass not too many dresses seem to fit right. Everything seems to reveal too much on top or too loose on the waist....well except for this dress, lol! The tights are by H&M and boots are by Nine West:

    I love the outfit!

    I know what you mean when things don't end up working out how you imagined it, happens to me alll the time, and usually I end up going to school/work looking all bummy. But the outfit looks great :)

    A very sophisticated and fun look. I've tried pink shadows and they really make things interesting! Loving your outfit, those heeled boots are killer!
