I “stole” this red ruffle dress right out of my friend’s closet (get it here) and the chances of her getting it back are…. slim. 🙂 So many of you guys ask how I have so many dresses and like I’ve mentioned in the past, I’m lucky to share closets with my best friend. But I’d also be lying if I said my own dress collection wasn’t extensive. Dresses are what I wear 99% of the time (if you haven’t noticed) and I have a great collection of my own. But sharing with my friend has its perks and definitely gives me more content to share with you guy so that it doesn’t get boring.
I think transparency with all of you is so important so every once in a while I like to remind you guys that no, I do not buy two new dresses a week! That would just be insane. It’s a combination of my own purchases, my friend’s closet, and items gifted to me from brands. Oh, and the way you’ll know if an item was gifted is by the “c/o” which stands for “courtesy of,” next to the item I link at the bottom of each post. I’ve always been transparent regarding sponsorships and gifting but I’ve been getting so many questions about my dress collection so I hope this clears things up a bit. This lipstick has been a go-to of mine since getting it last year. I was skeptical of the hype surrounding the Nars Audacious Lipstick formula but it truly deserves all the love! The formula is pigmented, wears really nicely, and is comfortable on the lips. I’m wearing the shade “Grace” here (seen on the blog here too) and sadly lost my other one in “Stefania.” I’m still hoping to find it because they are not cheap!
