Wish List & Outfit Inspiration

October 21, 2014

I had a little free time this evening. I thought I would share with you some items that are on my wish list + and outfit idea I came up with on Polyvore. I recently did a video about how I create outfits on Polyvore. I generally make collages with clothes that I already own, but sometimes I will create dream outfits, and try to recreate it with what I already own.

Here’s an example.

The weather is starting to cool down, but it’s not too cold yet. I just thought this outfit was so versatile. It feels like something I can wear for many occasions; both casual and a bit more dressed up.

Lipstick: Nars


I have to admit, working at Nordstrom and Sephora as a freelance specialist/vendor for so many years made me a bit particular about makeup/skincare. Brands like Nars have become my weakness. Don’t get me wrong, if I find a drugstore item that kicks butt, I will cherish it forever.  I just always feel so beautiful when I wear Nars makeup. The product sits so well on my skin, and I always return as a customer both happy and satisfied. I recently got the Nars ITA brush and the Nars Albatross Highlighter and they are both amazing products. The highlighter makes me look like I just had a fresh facial, and LOVE it. The brush sheds a bit, but overall it gives the most beautiful bronze contour. It’s the PERFECT contour brush.

Here are a few items I’ve sorta had my eye on. I probably won’t try Tom Ford until I’m completely out of both Bronzer and highlighter which will be a whiiiile. I do love that eyeshadow color from Nars though. Maybe I will ask for that in my Christmas stocking. I’ve also had my eye on that brush for years now, but I  still can’t decide if it’s worth it. Anyone tried these products?

    Lovely wishlist! My mom is also a big Nars lover, she loves their pencil lipsticks. I love their eyeshadowbase, one of the best, if not the best!

    I love creating dream outfits and beauty wish lists, but I try to be good and put my collection to use before I splurge on something like Tom Ford. Having those list, or in my case, a pinterest board, helps fight the craving.
