Skater Dress and Studs

Hi Everyone! 

Well, you can call me the Queen of procrastination no more! I've been posting like it's no body's business!! Whoot whoot! I want to take the time to thank my new subscribers, for taking the time to sign up to receive emails on my posts, I appreciate it. 

I wanted to share this new post of this outfit I wore the other day, an ivory skater dress which is a pretty big trend now, basically just a knee length A-line dress, which is also big in skirts too. The dress came with a mint green belt but I swapped it out for my black ASOS belt that I turned backwards so it would keep the front seamless. I chose strong and bold accessories so the dress wouldn't look light or summery, but more fitting for fall/winter.

I chose to do dark smokey eyes and kept the lips nude and sheer. I used a concealer on my lips to even out the colour then applied a nude sheer gloss by the very affordable ELF cosmetics. An alternative for the top bun is a top knot, I think it's much more fresh and is not yet overdone, simply pull your hair in a high ponytail then braid your hair and wrap in a pointy knot. Voila! :)

Thanks for reading, and if you have any skater dresses or skirts that you have worn and styled, please tag me in your pictures on my facebook fan page as I would love to feature you here; (while you're at it, if you haven't 'liked' my fan page, please do! ;;)

 I'm also busy working on some new posts, and I'm putting up the tree this weekend and going a little DIY crazy with the Christmas home decor! ;) Would anyone like me to share those projects here?

In closing, I wanted to share the photo of  NYC police officer Larry DePrimo who made a huge difference in a homeless man's life the other day, by buying him a pair of shoes on an icy night. A random work of kindness caught on camera by a tourist, what a way to restore faith in humanity. 

I pray that we take the time to be make a positive difference in someone's life today.
