I had this dress from GB at the same time City Chic was having their marvelous end of season sale...so I picked up my very own for only $20. The (oh, so, soft) knit jersey fabric makes it an everyday dress for me, rather than special occasion...despite the velvet flocking...but I think every day should be fancy. This sleeveless dress could be worn year round...& the back is the same v as the front neckline. Fabulous fit & flare that stops just at my knees...my preferred length. I nabbed this gorgeous velvet Stevie Nicks jacket for under $10 at Savers...what a find!
Back at the library again...this time, not so much for the cold...but because we lost the light of day. I wore this outfit to work on this day, then again the next day to close on our new house. 
Lunch with our realtor before the final walk-through...& later, sparkling riesling with Angie & Toby at the new house. So. Much. Mosaic. 
My favorite part of the house...the fireplace on the finished side of our basement...this will be our tv & hangout area...it has a door to the backyard & a bedroom that I'll be turning into my craft room. 
NYX & Maybelline sale at Ulta...I stocked up on mascara & eyeliners. Dinner at the Habaneros by our new house. We won't move in for a bit yet...we are remodeling the kitchen first, but hope to get our current house up for sale before summer. 
My make-up with this outfit included...NYX eyeliner in Jet Black, Kat von D eyeshadow in Medusa & Ankh, Year of the Dragon eyeshadow by Mon Ennui, NYX lipstick in Perfect Red, & You Make Me Vroom nail polish by OPI.
