Modern Muse

You guys... my pink round sunnies from Asos finally broke. It was a sad day that only I alone experienced.

However it wasn't all bad. Having those round sunnies on repeat (kind of like a test-drive) for an entire year made me realize how much I loved the style. So much so I gave away all my other sunnies on craigslist and saved money by paper-bagging my lunch over the last month.

I saved and decluttered - the boyfriend was in heaven. Lucky me, I also found the exact pair I lusted over on gilt.com - thank you fashion gods!

I also went to an Estรฉe Lauder event this week. You know, those mall store events and scored a handful of deluxe samples. Guys, if any major beauty brand ever hosts a mall event near you, go. They practically give everything away for free along with a makeover - it's the best! I absolutely loved the perfume they were promoting and decided to create a look centered around it.

I am no Kendall Jenner but feel that my entire look speaks to the long-wearing floral and ebony scent. It's not too heavy nor light but has all the right oomph to make me stand out from the crowd. Kind of like my outfit: black and white staples with a bold lip and crossbody.
