Wardrobe Wednesday - Sequin Skirt

I love skirts and I always have. When I was a kid I wore skirts to school most day (fact: I didn't  own a pair of jeans until I was 11) and although I wear jeans to work frequently as an adult skirts are still my favorite article of clothing. A few weeks ago I posted about my love for tulle skirts but another novelty skirt I love is the sequin skirt.
 
I got my first sequin skirt in 2015 and it quickly became my night out / party staple.
 
This was pretty much my uniform for the 2015 holiday season: 

 looking back I think a non turtleneck would have been better.
 
When it was time for my bachelorette party I broke from the bride wears white tradition and work my favorite party skirt.
 
Yeah, this picture is poor quality, there's not a lot of pictures from this night so this is what I've got.
 
Recently though I decided to take my "party skirt" and see if I could make it work for a daytime look. Here I have paired with a chambray top and boots.

Although I'd prefer heels in the future this might be one of my favorite outfits ever!
 
My current sequin skirt is from target and cost $24.99 (oh yeah!) but I'd really love one from society plus. I tried the sequin pencil skirt and decided its not for me, I like a skirt with a bit more swing.
 
I think sequin skirts are fun, festive and surprisingly comfortable. It's so easy to wear the same pair of jeans everyday or convince myself I'm not doing anything "special" enough to warrant sequins but I want to be better about using the stuff that's in my closet and not just saving something I love for special occasions. I still think sequins are too much for the office but make great afterhours and weekend wear.
 
I'll probably be investing in another sequin skirt soon in either rose gold or silver. Here's some of my favorite daytime sequin pins I'll be using for inspiration in my future outfits.
 
 

 

 
Sequins are for special days but you know what, everyday we're alive is special and I intend to embrace it!

Memphis Fashion Week 2017 Emerging Designers

The last night of Memphis Fashion Week is the favorite night for many local fashionistas because it shows off what is up and coming in our city. Once again I was able to grab a great seat and see the pieces up close.

First up for the evening was two time previous winner Tiena. I think it's easy to see why she's won twice before - just wow on these beautiful designs!





I love the model's expression here - it's like she just loves wearing this so much she can't contain it.








I love all of it but the yellow ruffle dress has to be my favorite, it's not a color I would typically be drawn to but there's something so nice about it!
Next up was the teen collection, these pieces were designed by beautiful young ladies all under 20. Once again, I am a complete and total life slacker. Seriously - I was blown away by how talented these girls are:






Sephora Play April 2017

This month's Sephora Play box featured some of the top selling Sephora products, here's what's inside:


Smashbox Photo Finish Primer
I currently use this primer and it helps my foundation go on smooth and keeps my face from getting too oily during the day. It's light weight and has no scent and one tube lasts a really long time - I bought mine before my wedding and that was six months ago.

Make Up For Ever Aqua XL eyeliner
The Make Up For Ever brand is very popular at Sephora and very nice quality products. This eyeliner doesn't smudge and goes on smooth.

Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Cloud Cream
This is a primer / moisturizer combo and I really like the way it feels - very light weight and makes my skin feel silky

Kate Somerville ExfoliKate
This says it's an "intense exfoliator" but I found it to be very fine. The paste is ather think and a yucky green color with a heavy plant scent, but hey if it works who cares what it looks like.

Sephora Waterproof …

20 Guildelines for Financial Responsibility

As a blogger I constantly worry if I am supporting over consumerism and irresponsible spending. At the end of the day I can say Oh, I LOVE this item and it was so worth it to me but I have to hope that people are making the right decisions based on their own financial situation. But since finance is a passion of mine (it is my day job after all) and since so many of y'all are looking to focus on your own finances in 2019 I thought it might be good to take a step back from fashion and talk about the money honey! I don't claim to have all the answers or to be an expert, but I've learned a lot between my education, my career and to be honest making some bad financial decisions myself so I've complied a list of 20 guidelines for financial success from the basics to saving for the future. The Basics 1. You absolutely must be able to cover the four walls - your home and all utilities and maintenance - and your necessary expenses (food, car, gas) before you can think about…

Ipsy Glam Bag April 2017

OMG, Ipsy finally has a cute bag for the month!
Seriously, this month's coral ticket design bag is super cute and would make a fun little clutch for a night out at a festival or fair.
The items I received this month weren't terrible either. Here's what's inside my bag and my thoughts on each product:
OFRA Cosmetics Peach Blush $12 Everything I've received from this company in my Ipsy bad is a full-sized product (nice)! However they need to be in a refillable palette so that may not be your thing but I just found mine recently so this offends me less. This is overall a nice shade so I'll add it to my palette.
Hanalei Aloe Soothing Gel $30 This is a little more lightweight than the aloe gel you can get in a giant bottle at CVS but I'm skeptical yet if that makes it worth $30 for a jar. We're going to the beach in May so the timing is good and I'm sure I'll use the whole sample.
No Poreblem Primer $18 This is a nice, lightweight primer and has a …

20 Rules for Modern Feminine Style

One of the things I love about the digital age is the ability to connect with others! I recently got a great idea from a youtuber I follow to make a list of 20 "rules" that define my lifestyle and I really loved this idea and thought not only would this be a good exercise for myself but a good topic to share with y'all. So, obviously you do you and wear whatever you want but these are my guidelines for my modern feminine without breaking the bank aesthetic.
1. Focus on pieces with wear ability beyond one season, don't get sucked into too many trends. For example, gingham will always be wearable for summer, plaid for fall, sweaters for winter and floral for spring - but get pieces with classic cuts so you can wear them year after year. For example, a gingham shirt dress is classic, a gingham top with bell sleeves will look dated the second that shape is out. 2. Don't be afraid to spend a little more for quality timeless pieces - a cashmere sweater, a great blac…
