Eight Most Worn

I saw this on my friend MuyBella's blog, and I thought it would be fun.

1. Hair Product
Paul Mitchell Super Skinny serum - it smells like green apples and makes my hair silkier while cutting down on frizz. I tried the generic version from Sallys and the original is so much better.

2. Lip Product
Lipbalm! It's been really cold lately here on the east coast, so my lips and hands have been getting really chapped. Nivea's dark blue one is one of my favs because it's so moisturizing. I also love Softlips vanilla and Burt's Bees.

3. Earrings
Pearl studs. They're a little big, so they're fun for everyday while being conservative enough for the legal field.

4. Shirt
I'm obsessed with plaid button-downs lately. I love the ones from Abercrombie because they're so soft but I also got a great deal on an adorable pink one at Old Navy for only $12!

5. Nail Polish
I'm currently loving mannequin hand nail polish! My fav for this look is 3-4 coats of OPI Samoan Sand. On the toes, I'm planning on doing Lincoln Park After Dark this weekend. :)

6. Shoes
The Frye boots I posted about previously. :) They're so sturdily constructed and comfy.

7. Perfume
Creed Spring Flower - it smells so gorgeous and feminine and it's unique enough so that not everybody wears it. I used to wear Chanel Coco Mademoiselle all the time but now I find it too heavy and too ubiquitous!

8. Bag
Louis Vuitton Neverfull. It really never gets full no matter how much stuff I pack into it.

I'd love to hear about your 8 favs!

New boots

I had a pair of motorcycle boots from f21 that I adored but they were so cheaply constructed that they began to kill my feet. So my sweet bf got these Frye harness 12R boots for me which have almost the exact same style but with fabulous frye construction.

They do run a bit narrow in the toebox but I love them so far. They are very high quality and it is easy to see why Frye has been in the boot business since the Civil War!

Dior Summer 2011

Dior Electric Tropics Collection - Summer 2011

How stunning is this collection? Dior is one of my favorite makeup lines because I think they cover the entire spectrum of makeup so well - face, eyes, and lips. I personally am dying for the darker eyeshadow quint, the lighter face powder, and the nail polish. Orange is one of my favorite colors - it's so underrated and looks amazing with a tan!

R.I.P. Elizabeth Taylor

I was heartbroken yesterday to find that Elizabeth Taylor had passed. She has always been one of my ultimate fashion icons, with her wit, charm, gracious generosity, glamorous style, and diva attitude. Of course all of this is without even mentioning her stunning good looks - I personally believe she is one of the most beautiful women to have ever lived, rivaled only by perhaps some of the supermodels of the 90s. My blog is actually named after her character in Butterfield 8 because I was so taken by her!

She will be sorely missed.
