Hey, guys! Remember the manga I was trying to sell on eBay? Well, that didn’t work out too well. My last resort was shamelessly advertising it to my friends on Facebook, and it actually stirred some interest! My friend Gigi from high school bought a few volumes, and I just shipped them out yesterday. : ) As always, I was on the lookout today when my boyfriend and I explored the shopping plazas outside our campus, and had the greatest desire to spent some of my newfound cash on a classic fashion staple: The Little Black Dress.
The three simple styles shown above are from American Apparel. And I’m actually really surprised that I don’t own something similar. The Little Black Dress is suitable for almost any occasion, and a definite must-have for this Fall. Unfortunately, I was so caught up this summer trying to incorporate brighter colors into my wardrobe, that I completely forgot that I didn’t own one! Especially since Michael and I are going to a nice restaurant tomorrow night to celebrate our one-year anniversary, I thought it would be nice to pick one up. ; )
That, ladies, is the wonderful steal that I found at H&M today – for only $14.95. Can you believe it? I love the elegant cut and ruffles, and unlike most dresses I usually find, it’s flattering to my inverted triangle body shape. While I was in the store, I also noticed how they also found ways to make even maternity-wear look stylish!
There was also a Duane Reade at the plaza, so I took the time to buy myself a box of hair dye and a cheap eyebrow pencil. Mostly because my roots are growing in, and my current eyebrow pencil (Prestige, in Taupe) is too light and hard. I picked up the Wet’n’Wild eyebrow pencil in Dark Brown for only 99 cents, and when I tried it, it felt so creamy and smooth! It applied wonderfully, and definitely gives definition to my sparse brows.
I will definitely be making another post tonight regarding the results of my hair coloring tonight, so stay tuned! :3
