When d’orsay flats first came on to the scene, I couldn’t understand their appeal.  The one pair that I tried on was not flattering so I planned to swear off of them completely.  But then I spotted this pair in Madewell (where else?) and fell head over heels for the color and subtle print.  And to my delight, they didn’t make my foot look strangely distorted or show too much skin.  Now I’m hooked on this style!  I’m sticking with this pair for now but this one and this one are on my radar for spring/summer.

During a recent wardrobe purge, this cowl neck sweater landed in my ‘donate to Goodwill’ pile.  But, upon giving it a second look, I decided I should resurrect it and have some fun reworking it back into my closet!  Thankful I kept it because I’ve worn it numerous times.  That’s the fun part of a closet purge…sometimes you find old items that can be put back into rotation.  Besides wearing this outfit again over the weekend, I’m hoping to cross some to-do’s off the list and watch the Academy Awards.  Hope you have a great one!

Drugstore Makeup Finds

February 16, 2015


After a short break, I’m anxious to get back to Dressed and Fed!  Naturally, while away, I did some more drugstore shopping and discovered even more makeup products that have quickly found a permanent niche in my cosmetic bag.

Maybelline Brow Drama:  Last year I was all about lashes (still am!) but, now it’s the brows too!  Since I typically struggle with pencils, I thought Maybelline’s Brow Drama might be the quick fix.  The formula is not as thick as mascara and the brush is rounded making it easy to glide across brow hairs.  Perfect for drawing near-perfect lines when you’re prone to slip ups.  This stuff makes brows bold but not overpowering.

NYC Sunny Bronzer: After running through Benefit’s hoola too quickly plus the $28 price tag, I switched to a more reasonable bronzer and can now attest that it delivers the same warm glow and is highly pigmented for a flawless finish.  For under $3, I’ll scoop up a few whenever I hit the drugstore!

L’Oreal Blur Cream Blush:  I’ve used powder blush for as long as I can remember, but decided to switch to a cream for the dryer months.  While googling ‘best cream blushes’, I found this one by none other than L’Oreal.  There are only three colors available so I chose the pinkest hue in hopes of a just-off-the-slopes glow.  Yes, it delivers and leaves a dewy finish that stays put all day long.
