Pink Plaid

What I'm Wearing: 

Chicwish Check and Chic Cropped Set (UNDER $60 for the set!) // Forever 21 Faux Suede Heels (UNDER $30!) // Dual Ear Studs (similar; on sale!) // Henri Bendel Bangle // Stella & Dot Stretch Bracelet // Kendra Scott Double Ring // Lauren B Beauty Nail Polish in "Griffith Gaze" // Urban Decay Lip Liner in "1993" // Urban Decay Lipstick in "Naked" 

Every new piece I get from Chicwish, I remember why I love them so much.  This two-piece set is to die for.  It's pink and it's plaid...  What more could a girl ask for?  I love the soft, silky fabric and super flowy skirt.  It's like an end of summer dream look.  I would love to wear this to a garden party.

Let's talk sizing for a minute.  For those of you who have never ordered from a particular brand (such as Chicwish) before, I know sizing is the biggest question.  Every single piece I have every received from from them has fit me perfectly.  I go with a Small and for reference, I'm 5'4" and wear a XS-S top and size 26 in jeans (32" inseam).  The quality of this brand is excellent, so the fit is always right on for me.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick Swatches

Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipsticks 

If you didn't already know, I'm a huge fan of Anastasia Beverly Hills.  My first encounter with ABH Liquid Lipsticks was with "Craft" earlier this year and I fell in love.  When I opened the box of Fall Liquid Lipsticks, my heart just went pitter pat. 

I love the formula and wearability of the ABH Liquid Lipsticks.  They apply so smoothly and the pigment is brilliant.  As you can see in the photos above, the color printed on the packaging is pretty accurate to the color payoff when applied.

I'm a major nudes girl, so the nude shades (Veronica, Trust Issues, Dusty Rose & Sepia) are all so gorgeous for fall.  I love the pink undertones in "Trust Issues" and "Veronica" but "Dusty Rose" is basically a rosy-nude shade.  "Trust Issues" applies much darker on the lip than this photo appears, just a forewarning. 

"Sarafine" is a vibrant red shade that is perfect for the girl who loves a classic red lip.  If you're more on the daring side, "Midnight" and "Paint" are super fun color options. 

The Bottom Line:  If you're a liquid lipstick fan, then you absolutely need to give these lippies a try.  The pigment is rich, the application is smooth and the color payoff is fab.

Flowered in Chicwish

What I'm Wearing: 

If I've said it before, I've said it one hundred times...  I just love Chicwish.  Their quality is amazing and their pieces always fit me perfectly.  This dress is so adorable.  I love the cut and that you can choose to wear it open with a necklace or buttoned-up.  There's just something about a belted dress that always gets me.

When wearing an all-white ensemble, adding colorful statement pieces that pop really makes the outfit come alive.  The hero piece of this look is obviously the white dress, but the bright shoes and purse pull the entire look together beautifully.
