Outfit of the Day 10/24/11

I wore this on Monday, but didn't get a chance to post it!
My jeans are just your basic slim boot from American Eagle in a medium wash. The light pink blouse is from Forever 21, and I put a short sleeve gray sweater over top to add some more style and warmth(It's been so cold!) I rolled the sleeves of the blouse up so they wouldn't be disproportionate to the sweater. I took a statement necklace from American Eagle and put it under the collar of the blouse. I really like that look, and think it's very chic, but still young enough looking. I wore plain black Steve Madden flats. I've been wearing those shoes pretty much every day lately! I wore my hair in a top knot with bobby pins to keep it from looking messy, which is a go-to style for me. 
Have a charming day!

Outfit of the Day 10/17/11

Today, I went with a theme of mixing patterns in my outfit. Sometimes, mixing different patterns doesn't work, but I felt like this did.
I'm paired some high-waisted American Eagle shorts over my black tights, and I also wore my plain black Steve Madden flats. My shirt is from TJ Maxx, and it actually is a tank top with a gold zipper all the way down the back. The shirt is very unique, because it has a knot in the front, but I tucked it into my shorts, because I don't particularly like the way it looks. My black blazer is from H&M. The lining is cheetah print, so I decided to roll up the sleeves a bit, so that it was visible. The blazer also has slight shoulder pads. My necklace is from Express. I bought this necklace for homecoming, and soon I'll be doing a post showing my homecoming outfit and makeup! With this outfit, I wore my hair in a straight, sleek low ponytail. Have a charming day!

Outfit of the Day 10/4/11

 This is an outfit I wore last week. 
My shirt is from Delia's and it says "I <3 Mr. Fitz" (from Pretty Little Liars). Underneath is a black lace cami from the Gap. My shorts are from American Eagle, and my tights are gray and are from Charlotte Russe. For this outfit, I would've preferred black tights, but I couldn't find any, so I settled for gray! I wore my Vince Camuto boots:
I carried my Christian Audigier bag, which I thought completely made the outfit!:
I wore red lips, which matched the heart on the shirt perfectly! :)
Have a charming day!

Review: MAC eyeshadow: Patina

Sorry for the lack of blogs! Today, I'm doing a review on a new MAC eyeshadow that I bought yesterday. I wore it today and I LOVED it! Patina is a frost finish. I had the MAC girl try it on me, and she put it from my lid all the way past my crease, and it looked so pretty, so that's how I wore it today! It was so simple, and looked so nice and put together. Because it has a subtle shimmer to it, the lid picks up more light that the crease and brow bone, so it looks like your wearing multiple colors. I feel like this color would flatter anybody! It would be such a beautiful wash of color on darker skin tones. Finally, here are the swatches(they don't do it justice)
Here are some comparisons:
