I normally stick to neutrals when it comes to eyeshadows, but for some reason I was strangely attracted to MAC's Golden Lemon pigment while picking up some eye cream at Nordstrom's the other day. I'm still not quite sure what the correct way to apply it is, but I had fun playing with it! What I did was dab a little MAC shadow paint on my eyelid and then I packed on the pigmented powder and blended gently with an eyeshadow brush. My best friend helped me with the fake eyelashes, thank you babygirl.

I made a few mood boards this past week to help me visually organize everything for upcoming projects and thought I'd share one with you. Currently inspired by: pale pink hues, strapless evening dresses, Daria Werebowy's hair, metal ladder chandelier, bra tops, a mother of pearl clutch by Kelly Wearstler, peonies, and Robin Thicke's Blurred Lines music video.
Below are some fun things I found inspired by this mood board:

I've been wanting to photograph this vintage princess dress that Shareen let me borrow and finally got around to snapping some photos last week. JewelMint also sent over a box of fun jewelry a few days ago, so I snatched up a pair of rhinestone chandelier earrings before heading out to shoot...
Wearing JewelMint crystal reign earrings, Givenchy sandals, and vintage 50s dress.

Having a 90s moment in a vintage pinstriped skirt I found at Shareen. I guess you could say this outfit was somewhat inspired by the spring Balenciaga collection, specifically the look with the crisp crop top and asymmetric long ruffled skirt .
Also wearing a Topshop tee, vintage sterling silver jewelry, and Saint Laurent sandals.

Another one of my favorite outfit formulas- a boxy sweatshirt and slouchy trousers. It's the complete opposite of my usual uniform, yet I feel equally comfortable in both...
I borrowed the sweatshirt from my best friend and paired it with Emporio Armani trousers, Jimmy Choo pumps, vintage bakelite earrings, sterling silver clutch, and rings.
