18 and 19 March 2015: Color Scheme

Apparently I have a color scheme in mind the last two days. It wasn’t intentional, but it’s a good combo, so. We’ll see what happens tomorrow.

Forever 21 cross back dress, Old Navy cardigan, Old Navy tights, Mickey necklace, Hawkeye bracelet, Bass Heritage boots

This wasn’t the dress I originally had on, but I can’t remember for the life of me what I decided NOT to wear. Hmm. I don’t often wear this dress because it’s more fitted than I prefer, so I always think it’s too small, but it isn’t. It fits wonderfully. Just fitted. I love it’s swishiness.

Coldwater Creek shirtwaist dress, Kate Spade necklace, Hawkeye bracelet, Aerosole wedges

See, also not what I originally meant to wear. Okay. So. I bought OPI’s Cinnamon Sweet nail polish off Amazon. It’s from Gwen Stefani’s Holiday 14 collection, and Hayley Atwell shared that it was the color they used for Agent Carter. So clearly I had to get it. And put it on immediately. And then of course I had to dress retro right? To go with the nail polish. And the lipstick that was inevitable when wearing the nail polish. I have this great very 40s blue wrap dress that I had on first, but it’s too big. I could make that work decently well, but the fixes meant that it looked absolutely mumsy with a cardigan, which was necessary with short flutter sleeves. So that dress got put aside for true spring and out came this one. Why do I always forget how much I love this dress???

Anyway, the Cinnamon Sweet rocks and I highly recommend it. Check it with one coat:

A nice true red, totally opaque. The brush is one I haven’t seen with my older OPIs – a little flatter and wider, so it went on like a dream. I did add a second coat to make it a deeper brick red and I adore it. Two coats:

Also, my request, my Hawkeye bracelet:

I got it from BombDotComGeekery on Etsy and I super love it. I am all about geeky fannish touches that are only obvious to those in the know!

  1. Love both black dresses they look awesome on you! I think I would have went with a high heel or medium heel in black instead of the wedges. I saw on your second post you taken out the your navy keds, I guess that means spring is coming! Oh what is you foot size I will keep an eye out for a pair of plaid keds in etsy or some other sale site for you. Have a great day! ;o)

    • Thank you! And yeah, the wedges were a holdover from the original dress, but also more walkable than my other heels.

      And yes, spring is almost here! Or it keeps coming and going, ha. I’m an 8.5 and I’d love to see any cool plaid Keds you find! Thank you. 🙂
