L word

Went to a launch party for the Real L Word wines and meet reality star Rose Garcia. Had a fun time trying new wines, and chatting up other journalists in the room. Rose was actually an hour and twenty minutes late to her own event, so of course we were all gossiping about how unprofessional and D-list of her to do so! But in the end we struck up a conversation with the 'diva' and got a few pictures. She was actually very nice, I asked her what she was wearing (I was feeling very E! celeb correspondent on the red carpet), she said BCBG.
Not only was it a good time but a portion of the proceeds went to benefit the GSA Network (Gay-Straight Alliance Network)--I'm all about helping, the fact that it was actually a fun event made it that much sweeter!

It's been a while since I threw on an outfit that I completely loved, and no matter how much my bf was giving me the 'you look like your 50' eye, I wasn't budging. I was feeling sexy, elegant and extremely feminine- which I usually don't do on purpose! My ensemble was a mish mash of watching too many episodes of Mad Men, and Abbey Lee in Paris during Fashion Week--it's all about the maxi skirt, and I plan to wear this trend out!

 By the way this was a recent mani I DIY'd. Its a light pink base, with iridescent black french tips. Trying out new takes on an old classic. I think I might be experimenting a lot more with my nails this season. Anybody else do their own mani's out there? Have any good color suggestions I should pair up?

  6. I adoreeee your outfit, and I've gushed about this many times before, but I love your beautiful, beautiful face - you have perfect skin, sweetie. The party looks like it was really swank and fun, and the fact it's a charity event makes it even more lovely. But don't ask me about anything that has to do with manicures - I'm terrible at painting my nails one color, let alone trying decor or different colors. But my roommate just recently painted a leopard print on her nails (yellow + black), which I thought I wouldn't like, but it's really unexpected and it eventually grew on me.

  8. Maybe what he really meant was that on a scale of 1 to 10, you look like a 50? I know, maybe it's a bit of a stretch, but I totally go with that because you look freaking UH-Mazing!! You + your sis are absolutely stunning!! <3
