What I Bought This Weekend
This weekend was great for me. I headed over to the Pieces 10th Anniversary Celebration with my fellow blogging buddy Lipstick Fashion. Pieces is a fabulous boutique located near Park Slope, Brooklyn and has some of the most to die for items perfect for any fashionista. The owner Latisha Daring celebrated 10 great years of entrepreneurship, great fashion, and excellent customer focus so we were there to share in the festivities.
We had a great time! Check into The Fashion Bomb later for more pics of the event.
Prior to the event I had run into Macy’s to check out the shoes and wound up with these babies:
The ones at the top were on clearance for 50% off the original price and I had a 20% off coupon! Yess! #win
Then I electric slided over to the new Impulse Beauty section they have at Macy’s. Does your store have one? It’s almost like having a Sephora smack in the middle of the store—very similar to the concept of Sephora inside JCPenney. They carry brands like Dior, Clarisonic, Too Faced, Cargo, Urban Decay, etc. And the sales people (or at least the ones that helped me) are super energetic, friendly, and helpful. One young lady helping me out was so excited when I picked up Cargo Blush in Key Largo—mainly because she also had it on but probably because we share the same love for bright blushes. On darker skin a brighter color blush is ideal because the color shows up so well as opposed to something more subdued. I also picked up Too Faced Lip Insurance as a recommendation from Lipstick Fashion. Can’t wait to give it a test run.
Even earlier that day I hightailed it to Sephora because they had the highly coveted Urban Decay Naked Palette in stock. I saw swatches of it on Temptalia months ago, but was interested in only 3 of the shades. Then of course since makeup fanatics over the web were reporting that it was selling out like hotcakes, I then decided I wanted it…lol. Something about makeup being in limited supply but high demand makes me go crazy. So I picked it up–there wasn’t a tester for it on the display, so I had to buy it site unseen.
And though not a purchase from this weekend, I did get some polishes in the mail the other day from Ginger + Liz. They have a line of cool polish colors that are coveted by celebs like Rihanna, Mary J. Blige, Rachel Zoe, the Kardashian sisters, and celebrity manicurist Kimme Kyees–just to name a few. I picked up Hold the Drama (a creamy midnight navy that shines a bit on the purple side) and Tough Luxe (a deep army green with gold sheen). They will be fall nail polish staples for me along with some other polishes I ordered from China Glaze: Liquid Leather (a gel finish deep black), Ruby Pumps (red with red shimmer), and Lubu Heels (a deep black with burgundy sheen). I can’t wait until I get then.
In other related nail polish news, I got the Sephora by OPI Only Gold for Me Top Coat mentioned in this post!
So that was my weekend! How was yours? What did you do/buy?
