I wore this outfit on 3 different days... to farmers' market, work, run errands, & to fly to California. I would have purchased this dress had it come to me in my preferred size for GB house brands, 5x. I'm not sure if that was an error on my part or theirs, but I have recloseted it in the right size & hope it comes to me. This is the same style of dress as autumn leaves & pumpkin patch picking. The pattern & colors are just many possibilities. The first time I wore this dress, it was with red shoes, but I didn't get any pictures. The 4x is slightly tighter on me, but obviously still wearable. This wrap style with the asymmetrical neckline really works for me...comfortable & well as a great length. 
Purple shoes! It doesn't seem like it should be such a unicorn...but it has proven to be for me. I have been searching online for purple shoes (& sandals) for ages & haven't been able to find anything I like. Then there they were...$4 at Savers! These A'rcopedico shoes in Shawna, are also available in green...another difficult to find shade...I may have to start scouring the web for a good deal on those.
The last of my Black Friday deals came in the mail...Colourpop was having a 25% off sale, so I decided to finally try them out. They are super cheap & super fabulous!! I haven't yet tried the liner, but I am in love with the matte lipsticks & shadow. Unfortunately, their website was wonky for me & I ended up ordering 2 of the same color eyeliner by mistake...also, I was sent a stick liner of a color I ordered in pot form, but they have excellent customer service & gave me a code to get a free one added to my next order. 
Kate & I at the last indoor market for me at the convention center...they move to The Senior Center in January. We saw this man blowing bubbles off the roof on our way to Kate's hiking makes me smile to stumble upon things like that!
The girlie in purple right before hiking into the fog. One of the girls of The Girls of GB works at Trader Joe's...she is responsible for many unplanned trips there as she posts images on Instagram that I NEED, such as these 3 surprise state bags for $3. If my memory is correct...I ended up with North Carolina, Virginia, & Southern California. 3 of the shirts David got at Savers 50% off sale (more below). 
Dinner at Ha Long Bay with David & some polish & hair dye I picked up at the beauty supply. Redken Bonfire is what I use on my hair in the cooler months, & in the summer I go one shade lighter with Redken Marigold. 
My Savers 50% off haul...2 pairs of purple shoes!! Also, a pair of navy shoes in the same style I had found there previously in well as more shoes & 2 cardigans. I have great luck at Savers in finding things that fit me...mostly cardigans & shoes. Super Boo usually finds a lot of Nike Dry-Fit & Under Armour clothing to wear around the house, but also lucks out with shirts...this time we found him 2 F/X Fusion shirts & a fun stripy shirt from Lacoste.
My make-up with this outfit included...NYX eyeliner in Gypsy Blue, Urban Decay eyeshadows in Freeze & Undone, Colorpop Super Shock Pressed Pigment in Erotic, UD Naked Flushed, & UD lipstick in F-Bomb.

  1. I love you in green! I'm also jealous as there's no Color Pop stockists in the UK. I shall live vicariously through you. :)

    1. I'd be happy to ship some to you if you want to try it :)

  2. Love those shoes and argyle sweater! And as always your hair and makeup are perfection.
