Mini Haul

I've worked insanely hard this semester and I think a little Christmas present is in order. Lately I've been obsessed with accessories in bold prints and I was lucky enough to find some animal print oxfords on sale for only $17. They were so freaking adorable that I just had to buy them.  I think that these shoes will add the right amount of pop to any outfit. Since the pattern is so bold, I've been thinking of pairing them with more monochromatic outfits. I can't wait to wear them, but it hasn't stop raining.

A few weeks ago I also got some lip products. My lips tend to dry up easily so I'm always on the look out for tinted lip balms. The one I got is from Hard Candy and it's in the shade Starfish. I was very drawn to this shade because I think it is very subtle for a coral shade. Since I don't like to wear bold make-up for school, this one works perfectly for me. I got another coral shade, but this one is a lipstick. It's from Model Co's Satin Lip Couture in the shade Coral. This shade tends to be a bit more of the pink side and it has a very light sheen.

Along with the lip products I purchased two nail polishes. The first one is Rimmel's Lasting Finish Pro in Steel Gray. I was really drawn to this shade because I've been looking for a very understated matte gray. I think this shade looks very elegant and polished, so it would be one of my first choices for any job interview or formal event. The other nail polish is NYC's Long Wearing Enamel in Plaza Plumberry. This one is a very rich and luxurious dark plum. I think dark plums are a great alternative to black nail polishes since they still add an air of mystery and elegance to nails.

  3. Love the leopard print oxfords! And for $17, that's such a great deal! I have a pair of leopard flats and I pair them with neutral colored clothing and it makes them stand out (and I get a lot of compliments). I hope to see pics on how you paired them. ;)
