|YSL 'Parisienne' Eau de Parfum Spray, 3 oz.|
My lovely mother bought this for me from Duty Free on her trip to China recently. I've been LUSTING after this perfume for months now. Every time I would step into a Sephora, I would spray it and just sigh about how much I loved it. I've been wearing this every single day since I bought it and I can't get enough! It's so feminine and soft, but still unique. It's a bit fruity, but floral at the same time, creating a really elegant, sweet scent. I'm hoping this will last me a while since it is a 3 oz. bottle. The second it's gone, I know that I'm going to have to repurchase it. I'm in love.
|Marc Jacobs 'Lola' Eau de Parfum Spray, 1.7 oz.|
My mother also purchased this from Duty Free for me. I bought my first bottle about two years ago while I was working at Nordstrom. It was my summer before college and I was looking for a signature scent that I could take with me to college. In high school, I never wore perfume so I wanted something to make me feel more grown up and college ready. I went to the counter and was immediately drawn to its beautiful packaging. And the instant I smelled it on myself, I was hooked. It's a gorgeous floral scent that is daring and sweet. I bought a 3 oz. bottle and it has lasted me this long. The best part about 'Lola' is that it lingers for forever. I will only spray it about 3 times and it will last me the whole day through. It definitely has become my signature scent. I've had a lot of friends from college tell me that whenever they smell this perfume, they immediately think of me. Mission accomplished.
|Sephora Prisma Chrome Eyeshadow in Moon Beam|
I had been swatching and looking at this color since this collection came out. It's a really beautiful champagne beige shade with really finely milled shimmer. I've been wanting a good, neutral shimmery shade to use every day or for a more natural look. I used it recently and received compliments on my shadow color, so that must mean something good! My only issue is that it doesn't really apply very well with a brush when dry. It doesn't have the best pay off, but the color is buildable. I have yet to try this eyeshadow wet, but I don't know if I will since I'm not really a fan of applying wet shadows to my eyes.

|Silence & Noise Side Ruched Knit Skirt in 'Orange', size small|
I'm not sure why online these skirts are listed as 'Black Multi' and 'Orange' because the first one is definitely a bright, royal blue shade and the second is definitely a brick red shade. But, okay. You've probably seen the red skirt in action in my 'Pops of Red' OOTN post. I found these skirts in the sale section of my local Urban Outfitters are was immediately drawn to the shape and color. They are normal body-con mini skirts, but they has ruching up the sides. I was a little skeptical at first when I looked at them on the hangers, but decided to try them on anyway. As I was going into the fitting room, the fitting room attendant told me that a lot of people have told her that they were surprisingly flattering. And as soon as I tried them on, I was sold. The waist band is a little bit big, but not a deal breaker. Everything else fit me perfectly. It's the perfect body-con skirt. The ruching was so flattering and the way it gathered on the sides was perfect. I've been needing more colored body-con skirts cause I was getting sick of my typical black body-con skirt look every weekend. But, the tag said that they were on sale for $19.99 so I stuck with the red instead of the blue. But, as soon as I got to the register, they rang up for $9.99 so I literally ran to the fitting room, grabbed the blue one as well, and bought both! Best surprise and most exciting purchase in a really long time!
|Staring at the Stars Textured Cropped-Sleeve Top in Ivory, size medium|
On my way to the fitting room, I stumbled across a sign that said "Staring at the Stars Crocheted Top Now $29" and I immediately thought, "Um, yes." Staring at the Stars is one of my favorite brands from Urban Outfitters so I jumped at the opportunity. It decided to go with the Ivory shade because I'm not really a color person in general and I thought this was a really versatile color. You can make it more bohemian with a pair of jean shorts, sandals, and a head wrap with lots of chunky jewelry. Or, you can make it more edgy with a lace bralet underneath, black high waisted jeans, black booties, and a collar necklace. I wore this in my 'Pops of Red' OOTN as well. It's so soft and so comfortable, I want to live in this shirt. It fits nice and loose, but it's still a bit short so it doesn't look too big. You definitely have to wear something underneath since it is crocheted and you don't want to give the world a free show.
|Forever 21 Black Sundress, size small|
Okay, let's get this straight. I am not a dress person. Especially not a sundress person. I'm not entirely sure why, but I think a part of it is that I find a lot of dresses to be boring. Like, you can't really do much with them. But, this is one of those rare, random gems you find in the middle of a random rack at Forever 21 (hence the lack of a link, cause I couldn't find it online) for $12.80 and you figure...why the hell not. It is just a typical, short, black sundress that cinches in at the waist. It's actually very flattering on me and can be dressed up or dressed down. I probably wouldn't have purchased this if it wasn't in black cause I wouldn't know what to do with myself in a colored sundress. I'll probably end up living in this in the summer since it's so easy to throw on and go. It was a great purchase for the price, but I'm not sure if I'll ever really be a dress person.
