My Back To School Look!

Ughhh school. It’s so close!!

I know it might be weird, but I’m really pumped to be a freshman. We’re on the bottom of the food-chain, but high school just looks so exciting!

It’s time to prove yourself, and a fresh new look is what you need.

Starting off, I picked a BEAUUUTIFUL dress from my fave online store, Modcloth.

It’s the “Soda Fountain” dress in the color ginger.

It’s totally 50’s…my favorite fashion era.

I CAN’T EVEN EXPLAIN HOW MUCH I LOVE IT.

While other girls will go to school in their UGGs, skinny jeans, and PINK t-shirts, I’ll be the one who waltzes through the doors in a 1950’s goldenrod dress. I love everything about it, the buttons, the cinched waist, the cap sleeves. I can totally picture myself sipping an ice cream float in this. ;}

And for footwear, I chose some red TOMS to really add a nice contrast. The red looks reaalllyyy good with the dress.

They’re simple, classic, and comfortable. You can also pair them with a dress without making it look TOO casual, or rock them with jeans, shorts, whatever!

They are totally universal, and I love the detailed insides!

And of course, you can’t go to school without your bag! What else would you hold pens, pencils, books, homework, papers, supplies, food, and who-knows-what-else in?

Delia’s has the cutest little backpacks. I like this one because (A: It holds a lot) and (B: It’s classic)! The leather look never goes out of style, even if it’s faux.

Forget clunky, huge backpacks! This one’s nice and petite, so it’s easy to stuff in your locker.

Now last, but not least, I picked out an adorable pair of earrings. You could call these the cherry on top of this look!

*Ba dum tiss!*

Cute, huh? And yeah, I know, my joke was lame.

If you want to buy these earrings, you can get them here at Etsy , the utopia for all things cute and unique! These earrings add a vintage and quirky feel, which I like. Plus, when you put up your hair in science, they’ll be a total eye-catcher!

That’s all I have for today, my doves.

DUECES!

(Oh, and P.S: Are any of you excited to go back to school like I am? Let me know!)

FOTD

Well technically, this is a “face of yesterday.”<3  Haha

I wore this today, but it’s nearly midnight so I guess it’s “yesterday”. If that makes any sense.Image

This look is very no-fuss. I went to the zoo, so I didn’t exactly “pull out the big guns”. I just popped on some coverage, a dab of eyeshadow, and a topping of gloss. Simple, easy-peasy.

Image

I apologize…I can make extremely strange faces. Hopefully this squinty-eyed, puckered-lipped, peace-signed one above didn’t scar you for life.

My coverage wasn’t great..I used Maybelline’s Fit Me Concealer in #10 dotted under my eyes and on a few problem areas. It has a powder finish, so no powder was needed!

Image

As you can see, I have a light lilac eye and a shimmery, cherry-pink lip. When you see the lips up close, they really are super GLITTERY.

I was going out with the family, so I didn’t want to put on the cat-eye liner, falsies, and dramatic lipstick. It wasn’t like I was going to be walking the red carpet…more like modeling for a spring Vogue photo shoot, or a first date, or school. I wanted to look fresh but NOT overdone.

Image

So my eyes were kind of a mix of palettes. I was short on time, so I just kinda winged it.

I used an Estee Lauder Double-Wear ShadowCreme in “Gold Dust” all over my lids and up to my brow bone to provide a warm base. Then I piled on Urban Decay’s “Sin”, “Fishnet”, and “Stray Dog”.

Image

On my lips I just used a lip balm as a base, but you could use anything from Chapstick to MAC’s fancy shmancy lip conditioner. Then, I used MAC Lustreglass in “Wonderstruck”. It’s soooo glittery and wonderful!

And just for fun, I’m going to include what I put in my travel bag.

ISABELLA’S TRAVEL BAG 

Soooooo we were at the zoo for a pretty long time. Afterwards we ate, then stopped at Dutch Bros, then Walmart, and by the time we got home I was soooo tired.

When I’m at the zoo/fair/airport/mall/ect., I HATE lugging around a huge bag unless there’s somewhere to set it. I planned ahead this time though, and only had a small wristlet.

Image

It was just big enough to hold everything I needed. Which was:

Oil blotting tissues

Lip gloss for touch-ups

Hair ties

Small dental floss

Cell phone

To me, that’s all you need on the go. Sure, a little pressed powder wouldn’t hurt, but hey, I was at the ZOO. It would seem stupid to run off somewhere looking for a bathroom to touch-up your powder when your looking at elephants and other beautiful creatures!!

Lip gloss isn’t as much of a hassle to reapply in public.

If you guys have any questions or anything of that sort, leave it in the comments. I honestly really enjoy hearing your guys’s opinions and feedback. Did you like my look?

‘Night!

Inspired Outfit

Today, because I was very bored, I decided to piece together an “inspired” outfit. An inspired outfit is basically a look that someone or someTHING inspired me to make!

I just watched “My Week With Marilyn.” Marilyn Monroe is such a classic beauty icon, and wore a lot of gorgeous things. (Short review on the movie: The actress played her extremely well! Check it out when you have the chance!:} )

So, first off, I chose a swimsuit, not a dress, for a more beachy look.

Image

It’s the “Magicsuit Solid Gabby One-Piece Swimsuit” from Soma.  It just has that vintage pin-up feel, and reminds me a lot of one that Marilyn wore! Marilyn+Monroe+black+bathing+suit

Next, I picked out some high heels! It’s all about the shoes, ladies!

Who could rock heels with a swimsuit? Marilyn could!Image

I know everything looks very “basic black”, but Marilyn was the epitome of classic. These are the “High Heel Platform Pumps” from Peltz Shoes.

And last, I chose a pair of black, vintage cat-eye sunglasses from RetroCitySunglasses.   Image

Add some red lipstick, and that’s the cherry on top of a fabulous outfit. ❤

(I like to use MAC’s “MAC Red”.)

Hopefully this outfit wasn’t too boring for you guys!
