What I'm Loving

The Digs Tumblr page is something I recently stumbled upon. It's a photo archive from the Pittsburgh Post Gazette. They post vintage Pittsburgh photos that are amazing. The above shot is from 1962 of the Civic Arena! I especially love that they profiled the Park Schenley restaurant. That was old school elegance at its' finest... a Pittsburgh gem, for sure. 

I am super picky when it comes to make up and am a self proclaimed Sephora junkie. I have been looking for a new concealer and think that these two just might fit the bill. Has anyone tried either of them? I splurged on the YSL Touche Eclat, but have expressed in the past that I am less than impressed. I think these will be dupes of the YSL stuff.
This clutch has been on my radar for a while now. I think it is a ton of fun with the bright colors and bold print. To me, this clutch is summer. I think the perfect outfit would be a teeny tiny white shift, deep bronze tan, simple sandals, a bold gold bangle, turquoise earrings and this pretty.

More on the beauty front: Nars Risky Business gloss and Mac's Twig lipstick. These are very subdued colors. Just a hint of color and perfect for everyday wear. These are two colors that would look nice with most complexions and they can be applied sans mirror (a major plus in my book). 

So I'm really not into the whole chevron trend. I don't mind it, but it's not in my personal style repertoire nor in my personal decor. However, these C. Wonder beauties have caught my eye. They're simple and fun which is exactly how every cocktail hour should be!

Next obsession? ASOS. I really only started ordering from ASOS within the past year. Everything I have ever ordered, I've loved. It has a ton of product. You could probably spend days on the site and still not see everything that the online shop has to offer. A lot of their pieces remind me of Zara in that they are classically structured but with a modern twist. It's amazing because of the versatility of the clothing. They offer everything from cocktail to work attire! Scroll through, above, to see some of my favorite picks! 

Red, white and blue perfection. this dress needs to get into my closet. I mean, so stinkin' cute. At $200, the price is a bit steep considering it's just a simple cotton french terry, but the anchors just make it perfection! 

Some Valentino eye candy. I am dying for a pair of the classic nude Couture bow pump

Lastly, I picked up a bottle of the Campo Viejo champagne the other day and was pleasantly surprised. Campo Viejo red wine is an inexpensive favorite of mine, so I knew it couldn't be terrible! Priced around $20, this is dry and delicious, a good alternative when my fave, Veuve, is not on tap for the night. 

What have you been loving recently? 
Have a fabulous day!
