Day to Night: Polka Dots

So my shoes here are just sandals because it was just such a beautiful day, so warm. Let’s start with the sandals, they are Giselle Bundchen’s sandals, I have no idea what they are called anyway. Had them from last summer. I totally love them though!

Let’s take it to night:

The night look is a few extras to the dress. So the dress is from JayJays and it was only NZ$30. I absolutely love it and it comes with the super cute belt.  I added tights and these super cute booties from Rubi Shoes. Again I got them last winter so I’m not sure what they cost anymore, but it couldn’t be more than NZ$40.

The cardi is from Supre for like NZ$15 and the bag was such a deal. I absolutely love it and it was on sale for NZ$15 from Rubi Shoes.

Okay lovelies! I hope you guys have enjoyed this post! Sorry its been a while with the Outfit posts.

Fall 2012 Color Preview

The Fantasy of Fall

This fall, the Pantone color palette is about the magic of color. Fantasy and illusion are inspiring designers and makeup artists alike, with an unexpected mix of darks, brights and neutrals, cleverly manipulating reality into enchantment through fashion and cosmetics.

“Usually fall is limited to a few color palettes, but this fall runs the gamut,” says Michael Marcus, CEO of Michael Marcus Cosmetics. “Like a breath of fresh air, this fall is about finding your own individuality.” And color is what Michael Marcus Cosmetics is about. “We’ve always had bold colors in the line,” says Marcus. “It’s exciting to find the fashion world catching up with what we’ve always believed in.”

“One color … that’s all it takes,” says celebrity makeup artist Kevin James (KJ) Bennett. “You can use these colors on eyes and cheeks—make it multipurpose if you want.” The popularity of multipurpose products has risen with the recession, allowing consumers to update their looks for fall while staying budget-conscious.

The Pantone Fall 2012 Color Guide—This information was compiled from Pantone’s Fall 2012 Fashion Color Report, which can be found at Pantone is a global company that standardizes the language of color. The Pantone Color Institute studies the psychological and physiological aspect of color and forecasts color needs.
