Picture 077Picture 0791Green wrap tee and bandeau from Victoria's Secret, black stretch poplin trousers (that's how they were described on the Nordstrom website) from Caslon, black booties from Sudini, solitaire necklace and studs from Diamond Nexus Labs.

Hair was washed and conditioned, pureology thickener and Got2B curling mousse and scrunched dry. Then hit all with the curling iron in big sections and brushed out. Then took Jonathan Silky Dirt – teensy amount and twirled around sections.

Makeup is a mess… I started with Revlon ColorStay under eye concealer in Light Medium and then I used the Afterglow Cosmetics mineral foundation in Bisque. I then realized I forgot my contacts and put them in, getting tears and saline all over my face, making lines in the foundation. Then I looked and saw I forgot my moisturizer and my face looked flaky so I washed it all off and started over.

Second time around, L'Oreal True Match concealer in W1-3, philosophy The Supernatual in Beige, Cargo Matte BeachBlush in Tenerife, Revlon ColorStay shadow quad in Neutral Khakis – ivory in inner corners and khaki on lid. Lashes curled, two coats Cover Girl Lash Blast in black and a line of Maybelline Ultraliner in black on top lash line. On lips is Maybelline Shine Seduction in Blushed Bass.

Also… don't like this top. Was seduced by the fun color and the price and the newness of something in my drawer, but I think it looks weird, sorta like a hospital dressing gown or something worn to bed (the curved hem and visible stitching). However it will be a great option come St. Patrick's Day and IS quite comfy…

    Allie, the top is awesome. You look so thin! And the color’s terrific on you. I’m jealous b/c I look awful in green. (Doesn’t work with my olive skin coloring, according to my sis.)

    I think the top looks fine. I understand about second-guessing clothes, because when you break it down like that I can see what you’re saying. . . but the overall look works for you. It’s pretty. Wear it. 🙂

    I agree with everyone else – this is a fantastic color on you, and great look overall!

    I love the top. Actually I love the whole outfit. Your makeup looks good too even though you don’t like it.

    Hi Allie,
    I love the wrap tee on you too. 🙂

    I want one (or two!)

    I love the color on you – but you make a good point about a lot of VS merchandise – I’ve purchased several things from the website that weren’t exactly what I expected them to be – some odd quirk or “different hem,” etc.

    That said, I love VS in all of its mail-order empire splendor. 🙂

    The top does great things for your figure, I think wrap styles are definitely your friend 🙂

    I like the top too — I wish I could wear wrap tops, but no — too flat chested. Anyway, the color looks nice with your dark hair. It is bright — I think you may like it better with stronger makeup colors. And yes, it will be great for St. Patty’s Day!

    I do love it… I think the curved hem is the thing that gets me. That with the green sits funny with me. It’s not my typical sort of purchase. I tried it first with dark jeans and with my hair being so big on a rainy day I looked very… well not me at all. The pants made it look more refined. I’m thinking I will like it more with white jeans in the summer, maybe with some city shorts or cropped pants in a light khaki… will play around with it. 🙂

    The top suits you very nicely! Compliments your figure beautifully and looks neat and trim on you. Keep wearing it. Its a wonderful style for you.

    Well, this is nothing you haven’t heard – but I love the top, too! It’s too bad you aren’t happy with it – the color is great and the wrap style is very flattering! Pretty makeup today, too. 🙂

    Funny that all the other comments are about the top–I think it looks fab on you and I was ready to go to the VS website and see if I could find it for myself!

  14. February 23, 2008 / 12:34 am

    I too like the top. I totally want it. I was actually going to buy it the other day, but I decided to wait. And, I was about to ask if you liked but I kept reading. The top looks fabulous! It is on my want list!

    I have to go with joy and gillian, I like the top as well-the color is great and it’s got a way cute silhouette.
