Delta Zeta Formal

This past weekend, my chapter of Delta Zeta had our fall semester formal! I thought I would share my outfit and a new skincare secret!

Since it is in November, most people opt to wear darker colors for fall formal, and then go all out with patterns and colorful dresses for the spring. Fall also tends to be less formal.

Here I am with my little and little little! I wore a black lace dress from Delia’s. I know what you’re thinking… is she 15? But since I am a very small person, if I don’t want to have to take in a dress, shopping at a “juniors” store gives me more fit options. Also, this dress is very adult looking, the perfect length, and it was about $20.

I chose to accessorize with pops of bright pink, my shoes from Sam Edelman, a skinny Kate Spade bangle, (not shown) my Kate Spade cross body bag, and with my handsome boyfriend!

I curled the bottom three inches or so of my hair with my Jose Eber Clipless Curling Iron. It is actually my favorite hair accessory.

Leading up to formal, I was worried about the effect that the cold dry air was having on my skin. Luckily, I got a special delivery from Influenster: A full size sample of Vaseline Intensive Care Advanced Repair Lotion. I already use Vaseline lotion with Cocoa Butter, but this new formula really seems to penetrate deeper into my skin. It has worked absolute wonders, especially my legs, which get so dry from shaving.

I had an amazing time at formal and couldn’t be more excited to continue using Vaseline lotion!

 

Beach Babes

Sorry I haven’t been posting lately, I started working again and have been settling into my new house!

This coming week I will be heading to Beach Haven with my boyfriend’s family so I thought I would do a post on three different beach looks. It is so easy to have a different feel or style depending on your suit and the accessories you use!

Think pink with this bright suit, a fun sun hat, and a summer read!

Happy 23rd, Marissa!

This weekend I headed to NYC to celebrate my DZ Big Sister’s 23rd Birthday!

Even though she already graduated last year, I can’t help myself from crafting for her. I saw a giant martini glass at Michael’s and decided to decorate it and fill it with goodies.

The stem is decorated with chevron glitter tape and strips of jewel stickers, which I cut from a larger square. The M came as a sticker, but I laid out the 23 myself by cutting individual jewel stickers from the larger strips. I put one long strip of jewels down the back to hold everything in place and cover up any seams.

This is the final product! I filled the glass with regular and carmel Hershey’s Kisses and added small bottles of UV Coconut and Smirnoff Carmel and a set of bracelets from Capwell + Co. I also decorated the edge with Lollipops I found at Michael’s.

We made our way into Manhattan on the Lower East Side for a night out!

What I’m Wearing

Dress: Arden B

Shoes: C. Wonder

After tons of getting ready, singing, and picture taking, we headed over to The DL, Delancey & Ludlow.

When you first walk in, it is a cute bar and restaurant with chandeliers and mirrored bar walls. Upstairs, however, are two more floors. The second floor was pretty empty when we got there, but the top floor has a rooftop garden feel, and it had just the right amount of partiers!

We all had an amazing time! Happy Birthday Biggles, love you!
