Soft Purple

I'm sharing another quick look with you.  This is from a wintertime (still getting through all my pictures) and I can't remember all that I used.  I'm fairly certain it's mostly MAC though.  I can tell there's Stars N' Rockets eyeshadow, but I'm not sure what else is on the lid.

I think I just have chapstick on my lips.  My blush is from the Coastal Scents blush palette, I think, and MAC Jest for highlight as per usual. 

Hope you guys like it!

Hey everyone.  This look is from a while back, when the days were bitterly cold instead of sweltering.

MAC Plumful lipstick
MAC Amber Lights and Woodwinked eyeshadows
Ulta Fame Blush
I wanted to do Nymphette's FOTD Challenge Calendar, but I got sunburnt (for the first time in years) pretty badly.  Hopefully I can still get a few in when my face doesn't hurt :P

FOTD with MAC Hibiscus lipstick

Here's a look from a few weeks ago.  A bold lip with winged liner is my go to look lately, it's just so easy.  I used Wet 'n' Wild single eyeshadow in Brulee, MAC lipstick in Hibiscus, Clinique creme liner, and Ulta blush in Fame.  Speaking of the Hibiscus lipstick, I think it might be my favorite purchase of the summer.  The color is gorgeous, the formula is perfect and it lasts for hours.

What's your go to look this summer?

Love: Jeffrey Campbell

I've decided that every week I'm going to type of a post about brands/stores/items that I love.  I know many of us love to shop and I love getting inspiration from other people's style.  I think this will be a nice way to  display my taste in clothing, accessories, shoes, etc.

This week my focus is on Jeffrey Campbell shoes.  Lately this brand has really been increasing in popularity!  I love how eccentric some of the designs are and that the price point makes them attainable.  Most JC's range from about $100 to $200, which compared to Chloe and Christian Louboutin is pretty good.  Here are my current favorites:

I love these military inspired boots.  They are so cool and with a 4.5" heel they would make me quite a bit taller!  I would probably pair these with leggings and a slouchy, off the shoulder top.

To me these are the "classic" Jeffrey Campbell shoe.  When someone mentions JC this image is what pops into my mind.  I love that these heels have a hidden platform.  I find that platforms make very high heels and wedges much more comfortable and easier to walk in.  I really like when Litas are paired with skinny jeans and a fitted blazer.  It just creates such a long, lean, flattering silhouette.  My favorite color is the black, just because it goes with everything, but there are so many pretty options to choose from.

These shoes are so cute and super funky.  This is my favorite color combo, although I don't think it's very practical.  There's just something about the deep red paired with tan that I love.  I would like it better without the animal print though.  This is something I'd pair with either leggings or dark wash skinny jeans to show off the details.  I'm not sure what I would wear for a top though :P

These are my absolute favorites of the moment.  I love this deep red color, but I also like the black ones as well.  These are super high as well, I think 5.75" including a 2" platform.  These would let me see into the tall cages and tanks at the pet store!  Between the red and the black I could pair these up with practically anything in my closet.  If they came out with a brown shade I think I'd be all set!

Other styles I like include the pixie, one o one, erikson f, and pixie cut.

Do you like these styles/brand?  What are your favorite shoes/styles this season?
