OOTD: Full Lace Skirt

I love full skirts.  I can't seem to wrap my head around the name "skater skirt," so I much prefer to just call them full skirts haha!  I think that they're so girly and fun.  They're flattering to just about every body type.  If you feel like you need help creating the illusion of fuller hips or even your bum, try a skirt like this one.  If nothing else, you'll feel like a total princess while you're wearing it!  :)


 What I'm Wearing:

Skirt - Forever 21 (super similar style, only available in black now) also loving this skirt 
Top - Brandy Melville, similar from Forever 21 (1/2 the price!)
Earrings - Forever 21 
Clutch - Vintage, loving this one from Forever 21 
Midi Ring - TopShop, love this ring 
Heels - GoJane, identical pair from Prima Donna and these from Steve Madden

Current Favorite Foundations - Drugstore + High-End


I get asked quite frequently by my Gorgeous Girls what foundation I'm currently using and what are my thoughts on various brands.  So I thought I'd give you a list of foundations that have the Hello Gorgeous stamp of approval.

Here's a list of foundations that you'll currently find in my makeup cabinet.  I'm listing my top 3 drugstore and high-end foundations.

1. Maybelline Fit Me Foundation in "230" - $4.99
3. L'Oreal Magic Nude Liquid Powder in "318" - $7.39
5. Make Up For Ever HD Foundation in "N120" - $42 
6. MAC Studio Fix Fluid in "NW20" - $27

Let me know in the comments section what other products you'd like me to create a favorites list on!

OOTD: Shifty

I'm not a huge shift dress girl.  Sure I like shift dresses on other girls, but on me?  Not so much.  However, this little number may have converted me.  The bright blue and white colors along with the playful design just really make me happy.  This dress is perfect for a day spent shopping with friends or out to lunch.  It's so light and airy that it's absolutely perfect for these super hot days we've been experiencing here in LA.

So, if you're like me, and you shy away from shift dresses, be bold and go try one on.  You  may be pleasantly surprised at what you see.  :)


What I'm Wearing:

Dress - c/o Motel Rocks 
Sandals - TopShop via Nordstrom (super similar to Birkenstocks but 1/2 the price!)
Handbag - Rebecca Minkoff MAC bag 
Earrings - Forever 21, similar here
Bracelet - c/o Two Lil Birds similar here 
Midi Rings - Brandy Melville, same style NastyGal 
Thin Gold Bands - H&M, similar style here & here
