I was talking to my lovely friend J today, and she was telling me that she loved my earlier sassy outfit picture. So I told her that I wore those leg warmers out to dinner last week, and she told me that I can do it because I can pull it off. I have that confidence. Well, J, I don't think it's confidence as much as it's me being in denial, but I thank you nonetheless. And on that note, I have another "sassy" post for you :)
Before I show you the pics, I want to provide a little background (aka justification/ rationalization). About a year ago, I went on a whirlwind shopping spree one day before a wedding. We had flown up to Pennsylvania to attend a dear friend's wedding, and I had nothing to wear. Since Beaufort is not exactly a shopping mecca, I decided to pack lightly and shop for my entire outfit at the King of Prussia mall. So I ended up with this adorable Betsey Johnson dress (I tried to find a picture, but was unsuccessful. Sorry). It was blue, with black lace accents. I got a sassy little wrap to go over it. I got ridiculously fabulous earrings to match. Things were going well ....
So off to Nordstrom to get the shoes and the makeup. One thing I was at least semi-sane about was the shoes. I got great Steve Madden black heels. I knew I could wear those frequently (and I have). I got awesome, over-the-top M.A.C. makeup (think silver ... blue ... glitter).
Things were just about perfect, but I stopped at the Bare Escentuals store since I needed my basic makeup. And I found this great mascara in sapphire. I'm a sucker for sparkles and glitter. I rationalized that since my dress was like the exact same color, I needed this mascara. I assured myself I would use it again. And I bought it. I wore it at the wedding ... and I haven't worn it since. Until yesterday.
And I have to say, I love it! When the light hits my eyes in the right way, I see sparkles. Brian sees the sparkles. It's kind of sexy (OK ... I think it's sexy. Brian says it's "cute"). The pictures don't do it justice, but they give you an idea, at least. And remember, you don't have to get the sapphire mascara. There are other color options as well ...
I may be a mommy, but I can still (try to) look hot, right?
