I was faced with a challenge of dressing myself last week for a press conference I organized for a client at the capitol. I didn’t want to do the typical blazer look and I also knew I couldn’t get away with my normal work look of ripped jeans and a tee. Then, I remembered this beautiful and super soft maxi skirt I bought from Retail Therapy last month. It’s fleece and has a really nice shape. I added a simple black tank top, thin leather jacket and topped with a mongolian lamb vest. I felt like a queen and traipsed around that capitol like I owned the place..well not really. More like a chicken with its head cut off making sure shit was right, but afterwards, I glided out of there like I was queen.
Also, not sure if you noticed, but those lustrous lashes definitely aren’t mine. Michelle who owns Bloom Beauty, thoroughly lined by lids with natural, but much more voluminous lashes to complement my blondie ones. It’s been strange waking up with amazing looking lashes. If you live in Lansing, check her out! She’s most active on her Facebook page while she’s waiting a new salon space!
