Jacket: Macy's clearance
Skirt: Notations from Gordman's
Shoes--Victor, Bergner's clearance
OK, so I'm having a tough time figuring out the best way to take my own Outfit of the Day picture with my trusty little point-and-shoot. (Yes, I cut off the top of my head.)
I do have a little tripod now that attaches to my camera, so I can perch it on things and self-take my picture.
However, I guess I'll never get those awesome magazine-quality shots that many of you get with your wonderful SLRs (not that I'm covetous or bitter. :))
Anyway...this is what I wore to the wedding of a co-worker Saturday.
I love the dark turquoise velvet jacket. I got it last week on a 75% off clearance rack at Macy's...it was just under $15.00. Saturday was unseasonably warm for Northern Illinois, so I didn't even have to wear a coat!
I love the way the jacket flares out in an almost peplum-fashion...it's flattering.
I fiddled with some effects here to let you see just how pretty the color of the jacket is.
Here is my make-up look for the day. (I once again broke fashion rules by wearing eye-shadow the color of my jacket.)
On the lid I'm wearing Estee Lauder Peacock Blue.
On the crease (which you can't really see), I have black ELF shadow.
Under the brow is something I'm loving, that my Clinique-selling daughter gave me for Christmas (among many other Clinique treasures!) It's an under-the-brow illuminator that gives just the right touch of shimmer for a fancy occasion.
Mascara is Estee Lauder Sumptuous in black.
Eyeliner is (under eyes) Estee Lauder pencil liner, (above eye) ELF eyeliner.
Foundation is Estee Lauder Double Wear in Fresco.
Blush is MAC Mineralize in Gentle.
Lipstick is Estee Lauder Pure Color in Candy.
Lip gloss is Clinique Longlast Glosswear in Bamboo Pink.
Do you ladies have any ideas on other things I can do with this velvet jacket? This is the only way I've worn it...ideas are welcome!
