I adore these Sweetheart faux wrap dresses from Leota...if only they were 1-2 inches longer...they'd be perfect. I've worn this style of dress in one size smaller & this one fits me so much better... see me in...orange & pink, neon 80s, & pink python. Instead of the usual slippery fabric, this has a textured crepe feel...the sweetheart neckline is just so flattering & is a marvelous d√©colletage frame without being scandalous. Fantastic fit & I ended up falling in love with this cutsie print. I'll buy this one if I see it around. 
This dress would be fun to go overboard with for Valentine's Day...with a heart cardigan & tights...adorable. 
 Double wing eyeliner in black & pink...
My make-up with this outfit included...Kat von D Ink Liner in Trooper; Urban Decay liquid liner in Woodstock; Pink Pearl, Golden Nugget, & Sin City eyeshadow by Too Faced; Big Bang lipstick by UD; Quince lipstick from Bite Beauty; You're A Pisa Work nail polish from OPI; & Colors by Llarowe nail polish in Summer Lovin'. 
I have so many pairs of shoes with silver buckles or accents...so I brought a pair to the new house that I thought I might wear soon-ish to gold rub-n-buff them...so much better! They are sitting on top of a distressed kitchen cabinet door...that is pretty much all I've been doing for months now...painting these doors. I haven't really shared what I've been doing at the house here since I don't wear pretty clothes there...but I plan on doing before & after blog posts at some point...when there is an actual after. 
Savers 50% off sale...always so much fun! My basket full of everything that caught my eye vs. after I've tried it all on & eliminated...I was sad these super pointy Christian Siriano for Target shoes were a size 11 & too big to stay on my feet...I wore this style of shoe a lot in the 80s. This orange/red/yellow/black sequined cardigan was my favorite find of the day...
Shoes! The ones with the cut-outs on the left are never worn Dr. Martens...they will look stupendous with colorful printed socks peeking through.
I wore this dress on another day to have a nibble of breakfast with Kate & Jason at Graze...I had hash browns covered in caramelized onions & cheese...they were the best hash browns I've ever put in my mouth...yum! And look at that cute gingerbread barn...with sheep!
Then we went to the holiday edition of Kate's wine tasting group, Wasted, at Square Wine. I made two different versions of candied nuts...but only one was edible...sweet & savory spiced nuts...I hope I wrote down the spices I used...I think it was cinnamon, paprika, cloves, & garam masala. So much delightful wine! That last photo is inside the new Gail Ambrosius Chocolates...her sea salt caramels are outrageously delicious.
