Frequently Worn Outfit: Striped Skirt

I've worn this outfit so much lately that it's inspired a new acronym here on the blawg: f.w.o. (frequently worn outfit).

Some exciting blog news: a really talented and generous friend is going to help me create makeup tutorial videos! I have already planned to do a whole series on smokey eyes, but was wondering if you have any requests? (Don't forget about makeup looks I've already shown.)
iridescent ring
I think I got this ring in the late 90s at a french flea market? I thought I'd only be into matte nails for the rest of August, but I forgot how much I love Deborah Lippman's "Happy Birthday" glitter topcoat (worn over Sally Hansen "White On"). I wish there were a nail polish that looked exactly like the iridescent beads on my ring.

Oh and while I was taking pictures, I ended up meeting one of the cutest creatures of all time:

  9. I was about to reply with an excited rant about the awesomeness of your nails, but then I saaw the puppy and just melted into a puddle of love.
