I had a wonderful weekend with my bestie. She was in town to celebrate our birthdays together. Her's being on the 17th and mine the 26th. There was quite a bit of shopping and a gluttony filled weekend
These are pictures from Friday's work and play. Thankfully working in an outpatient clinic means that I can wear normal human clothing. On the occasional "I don't have anything to wear" days, I have the option of wearing scrubs too. It's a pretty sweet combo, however I still have to follow some rules. 1. I must wear business casual 2. Live in the 1920's and cover my legs and the tops of my feet. Which means I own an over abundance of leggings/tights and bright colored shoes or flats.
I was the talk of the office in these shoes, on Friday. Since most people are not as .. lets say colorful as I am, I did not stop hearing comments all day. "Anh love your bowling shoes" "What are those clown shoes?" "Those shoes don't go with that dress" The great thing about fashion TO ME is rules are meant to be broken. So what if I'm wearing a gray dress with leather trimming, maroon colored tights with polka dots and neon "bowling" shoes. It makes me happy and that's all that matters.
OOhh, also I had to tell someone in the office that "the shoes make the outfit". Well they do! If I have to wear flats to work all day at least have it be a statement piece. Am I right or am I right? I'm sorry I am not plain Jane.
Later that night I swapped the neon shoes for a pair of booties and colorful socks. We had a nice dinner date at one of the many Steven Starr's restaurant, Il Pottore , (posting pictures shortly). There were two dishes worthy of best dish in Philadelphia. The Suckling Pig which takes 5 days to prepare and the Chocolate Bomboloni, with nutella filling and vanilla bean dipping sauce... mmhhh
Loving my new lipstick from Makeup Forever. It's purple or Aubergine! I would have to say it's in between a tinted lip balm and a lipstick. It's extremely moisturizing and you don't even need a mirror to apply it. It is not opaque like most lipsticks. Since I do have natuarally darker lips most tinted lip balms don't work on me. But this lipstick applies with the perfect amount of color and moisturizer. One stop shop, no chap-stick needed. I picked up 3: The Aubergine N50, Red N45, Candy Pink
