I Love False Eyelashes

I recently bought a few new pairs of false lashes from Madame Madeline. I'd never purchased from this shop before but I'd been wanting to give it a try for a while and finally did! They carry several different brands and I found the prices to be fab -- almost half what I'd have to pay in shops here for certain brands! And, a note for my fellow Canadian ladies, I found the tiered postage costs very reasonable because, as you all know, shipping here can get ridiculously expensive.

Despite having been a fan of Ardell lashes, I've never tried their much beloved Demi Wispies style so I thought I'd give them a go.

I've also never tried false bottom lashes -- should be interesting to see how these work out.

This style reminds me quite a bit of the style I wear most often -- Ardell 105 -- but a little less perfectly symmetrical.

I'd been eyeing Ardell's Double Up line for a while in the shops so I decided to add these very '60s influenced pair to my order.

And finally, I thought I'd try a pair that were just absolutely outrageous. I'm not sure how I'd pull these off, but they'd be fab for a very dramatic look (or even the upcoming Hallowe'en season!).


Primadonna Girl

Lulu's Dress*, Sirens' Belt, Steve Madden Heels

I love this Lulu*s dress! It's a perfect little black cocktail dress and the off the shoulder style adds a little bit of sex appeal without showing too much skin. I paired it with a skinny belt to give myself a bit more shape and my favourite heels for a classic, evening appropriate outfit.



Bodysuit: Lovelysally* | Skirt: Thrifted | Heels: Ardene

I'm really into fitted skirts this summer. They're quite flattering and you can often find good ones at thrift shops -- in fact, I almost always find the best ones at thrift shops. They're usually too big (or just not quite as fitted as I'd like), but with a little work they can be genuinely transformed. I paired this retro little number with a bodysuit/swimsuit from Lovelysally and pointed toe heels to keep the outfit feeling more retro than not.


Dreams of Pink Satin

I recently bought this floor length pink satin dressing gown from one of my favourite thrift shops. In love.


Dying Daisies and Denim

Lace Top: Chicnova* | Bodysuit: ASOS | Shorts: Thrifted | Heels: Vintage

I apologise for my completely blank expression in these photos. I suppose, though, that a bored expression is still better than looking slightly demented because your eyebrows are uneven and making you look angry which is what happens to me on bad eyebrow days. All that aside, I tossed together a simple summer outfit with a pair of old denim shorts, a black bodysuit from ASOS, and the same heels as I wore in my last outfit post. I added a long lacey top from Chicnova to make the outfit a little prettier and my red lipstick and nails added a little bit of (much needed, in my opinion!) bright colour to an otherwise neutral palette of colours.
