Dress Obsessed

I am obsessed with dresses. Literally. Obsessed. I can not seem to get enough and I am always on the hunt for a new one. It's hard living in a town with not a lot of clothing options, other than the mall brand stores, Limited, Express, Ann Taylor, Loft, etc. My B.F.F. (forever) and I always have the "where the heck did that cute dress come from! We know the inventory of every store in the mall!" conversation every time we see a cute dress on someone. My only guess is these girls budgets for clothing are a lot more than mine and are hitting up the local pricey boutiuqes and well...I can get so much more for $300 than one dress with my employee discount.

One of my new fav line of dresses comes from Jessica Simpson....she really has awesome dresses! If you haven't checked them out, you should! I was so lucky to score these two today, on sale, at Dillards:

I really wanted this in green last year and was so excited to see the style back in this adorable white eyelet.
Buy it here (not on sale...but probably on sale at your local Dillards)

And a version of this...same style dress but with navy and orange flowers.
Buy the black and yellow version (here)

I am really digging this Max and Cleo dress I came across while looking up JS dresses on Zappos:

Max and Celo Cotton Mandy Dress $138 (buy here)

From my fav mall store, The Limited, here are my picks from the new summer line of dresses. I am totally digging the whole red and blue, patriotic feel right now and will proudly wear my country's colors.

Can't leave out LOFT:

What is your favorite line of dresses? Are you obsessed too....or not so much?

All Night Long

Reader's get ready to brace yourself...this one is the miracle product that I can no longer live without! The make-up product I have been searching high and low for years. The product that amazes me every time I put it on. It's Urban Decay's "All Nighter" Setting Spray.

How does it work? Once you are finished putting on your entire face of make-up, in a circular motion, spray 2-4 pumps of this miracle product onto your face and wa-la it literally will keep your make-up on your face, looking as good as it did when you finished applying it, for the rest of the day. I used to always look in the mirror around 3 pm and wonder "where did my make-up had go?" longer do I have to ask myself that question because this little investment keeps it there till I take it off. It feels like a light mist of water going on your face, does not feel sticky or heavy and it claims to stay on for 16 hours...not sure I have had to have my make-up on for that long, but I do not doubt one bit that it would last that long.

Where can I buy it and how much? You can buy Urban Decay products at Macy's, Ulta, and Sephora. It runs at a pricey $29, but worth every penny if your make-up does a disappearing act like mine does. You can buy a 1oz. sample at Sephora for $11 if you wanna give it a test drive before jumping in $30 deep. It also comes in a dewy version called "Dew Me" and a oil control version called "De-slick."

Well Hello Again

It's been a while! I have missed you! A lot has changed over the past few months and it has been forever since I have gotten a free moment to blog. Life has been busy, busy, busy. I really want to get back to doing the things I love and blogging is one of those. I do wanna know what you like best about my blog? Do you like to see outfits, product reviews, here me ramble...etc? I wanna give you more of what you wanna see. Unfortunately, my outfits are going to be a little more bias towards one brand now that I am working in retail again, but I can try and show you ways to mix in new pieces with old pieces.

And now I have to share with you my new found love...Sofft Shoes. Working on my feet for 8+ hours a day on hard wood flooring has not been a joy ride and I was ready to shell out a ton of dough for a pair of shoes that wouldn't kill my feet. I headed to Dillard's to check out Sofft Shoes and Cole Hann Air Pumps. After an hour of trying on different shoes with an adorable little old man (If you know me, you know I have a special place in my heart for little old men) I left with these awesome new Sofft Shoes.

Sofft shoes is made by Born (which is not so trendy...but  oh-so-comfy) and these shoes are  did not let me down in the comfy department. They are listed around $100 online but I snagged a pair at Dillard's for $49.99! I get so many compliments on them from the young and the old. Plus I can wear them for 8 hours straight and not feel like I want to saw my feet off.

More to come! I promise. Maybe not daily, but hopefully I'll be able to give you something to read through 1-2 days a week.
