New Favorite Collection:

Soft to the skin; can make a bold statement; looks good with almost everything--that's how I'd describe my new top from Astrid was kind enough to send me a top from her collection and it was simply love at first sight.

Included with the package was her lookbook, which gave me even more reason to fall for this collection. Astrid is an incredible designer. Her clothes are both versatile and daring. This isn't an easy task to pull of, since statement making pieces can often be too trendy. But with Astrid's line, it's easy to take any item and work it into your wardrobe. 

Whats more, my top is very comfortable. I love the feel of it; it's just so soft and of great quality. 

If you have a chance, check out Astrid at her Fashion Presentation on Sept 10 at the Apple Store, 1 block away from the Mercedes Benz Fashion Tents from 6-8 PM.

Kawaii Lipstick

I'm a sucker for cute packaging, but that doesn't mean I want to spend a lot on account of it. Aliexpress helped me get both cute packaging and affordable lipwear with this lipstick. It was 2.66 and comes in a variety of colors. Check out my review below for more info. 

It claims to be moisturizing, and it is. However, the color is a bit light for me. I'm not too bothered my that though since I feel it still looks good on.

You can find it here, if you are interested.

I heart these overalls

We made friends with the lilies, letting them be
They grew wild, uninhibited and free
For friends let friends live life as need be
 Friends simply want friends to be happy. 

For a while now, I wanted a pair of skinny jean overalls. This was easier said than done, as most were way out of my price range. But early this year, I found a pair on Aliexpress that fit my needs. The paticular seller I bought them from is no longer selling them, but searching "skinny denim overalls women" should turn them up. These were only $17.00  and I love them. They have a heart shaped pocket on the front, and embroidered hearts on the back pockets. While I was hoping for them to be a little more form fitting, I like the baggy roomy feel. They are super confortable, and I know I'll be wearing them for many suns and moons. The top is also from
