Dress Form Outfit #29

I seem to be drawn to clothing that is black, so I try to add some color when I can to what could be an otherwise drab outfit. This week, I paired a black mini-skirt with a black tank top (last used in DFO #17). I topped this outfit with a turquoise wrap sweater. The sweater has three-quarter length sleeves and is light enough to wear during the summer months. No necklace is needed because of the embellishment along the neckline of the tank top, but I’d wear a few bangles on each wrist and dainty hoop earrings. A bright […]

The dress has aged quite a bit, but it is still quite beautiful. The satin bodice features delicate cutouts around the neckline. The long sleeves feature three buttons along the wrists and a long line of buttons dress up the back of […]

A Few of My Favorite Things: Products I Love!

There are certain things that I like, and then there are other things that I love. Here are some of the skincare and haircare products I love and currently use. I have a fairly low-maintenance skincare and haircare routine, which is a blessing considering the fact that I’m nearing the big four-oh (40)! My skincare routine is simple. I wash my face with Mary Kay facial cleansing cloths. Then I moisturize with either Josie Maran Argan Oil (mornings) or grapeseed oil (at night).   I never wore make-up growing up, except maybe concealer. I did experiment with make-up several times in either high […]
