Anniversary Date Night Outfit

::Outfit Details::

Silver Sequin Cropped Tank ~ Express

Black Lace Top ~ Gifted

Silver Sequin Midi Skirt ~ Express

Black Chain Booties ~ Deb Shop 

Long Purple Wig ~ Anime Stuff Store

Lipstick ~ Lime Crime lipstick in Poisonberry

I wore this outfit last week when my husband and I went to see Little Shop of Horrors on our 4th wedding anniversary date.  Oh look, I am wearing another crop top.  This time, I decided to put this lace top underneath for a different look.

We ran into someone my husband works with at Olive Garden after the show.  A couple days later, he overheard the co-worker and another person he works with talking about my purple hair.  He said I looked like Lady Gaga.  Not the first time I've been told I look like Lady Gaga, but I am pretty sure she would never wear anything from Express.  But if she did, I guess she would look like me.     

Thanks for reading and have a nice day!

Pastel Purple for Easter

::Outfit Details::

Chain Jean Jacket ~ Love Culture

Black Ponte Bralet ~ Love Culture

Purple Skirt ~ Abercrombie Kids

Black Patent Boots ~ Frederick's of Hollywood

Long Lavender Wig ~ Anime Stuff Store

Lipstick ~ Lime Crime lipstick in Poisonberry

I hope you had a lovely Easter.  I spent the first part of the day with my family and my husband's family the second half.  I wore this outfit to both of the family functions.  It was nice to just sit around and relax for a change.

Pretty much everything I wore (except for my boots) is new.  Obviously, pastels are in right now for spring.  I am not really a pastel kind of person.  I gravitate toward bright colors more than muted colors.  But, I really like this shade of lavender especially this wig.  I have got a lot of compliments on it.

I am super into crop tops lately.  A few months ago, I wouldn't have been caught dead in a crop top and now I have like 6 or 7 of them.  I guess losing weight will do that.

Thanks for reading and have a nice day!

I Woke Up Like This

::Outfit Details::

I Woke Up Like This Sweatshirt ~ eBay

Neon Yellow Skirt ~ Forever 21

Black Patent Boots ~ Frederick's of Hollywood

Black Boater Hat ~ Forever 21 

Long White Wig ~ eBay

Lipstick ~ Lime Crime lipstick in Poisonberry

I had to buy this sweatshirt.  Not because I've seen other fashion bloggers or celebrities wearing it.  I had to buy it because every time I hear Flawless by Beyonce, I think of Kevin Hart singing I woke up like this on the red carpet for the Grammy's.  I smile when I hear that song and every time I put this sweatshirt on.

I also like the shirt because it is quite obvious I did not wake up looking like I do.  I am like a drag queen.  It is a process to transform into LaLa.  Lauren (my real name) doesn't look anything like this when I am sitting on the couch watching sports with my husband.  

Fashion is suppose to be fun, right?  Well, I have a lot of fun when I wear this shirt. 

Thanks for reading and have a nice day!

Makeup Monday ~ Cat Eye Eyeliner

Today's Makeup Monday look is inspired by Marilyn Monroe (one of my favorite actresses).  I wanted to take a break from the colorful looks and do a more classic look.  It is so simple, but I like it so much I have already wore my makeup like this a few different times.  It is all about the eyeliner instead of bold eye shadow colors.  I like it.

Products Used:

  • L'Oreal Magic De-crease Eyelid Primer
  • Prestige Eye Shadow in White
  • Maybelline Master Duo Eyeliner in Black Lacquer (upper)
  • Maybelline EyeStudio Eyeliner in Blackest Black (lower)
  • Wet 'N' Wild Eyeliner in White  
  • Rimmel London Scandaleyes Mascara in Extreme Black 
  • Lime Crime Lipstick in Poisonberry

Thanks for stopping by!

We were in Pittsburgh Thursday.  We went to the flower show at the Phipps Conservatory and took some outfit photos in the strip district afterwards.

My beautiful anniversary flowers from my awesome husband.  Tie dyed and pink glitter roses.  My husband knows me so well.

My little Pokey girl is 13 today.  I am so glad that she is happy and healthy.

A little sneak peek of my Easter outfit.  

We are officially house hunting.  After thinking long and hard about what we want to do.  We have decided to move.  I didn't get to finished all the projects I had planned for our house, but I am excited to start over in a new house.  Check out my interior design blog for photos of our current house and all the projects I have completed.

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Easter.
