Picture 0081Picture 0091Apple green tissue-weight merino boatneck from J. Crew, ivory wool-blend coin-pocket trousers from Ann Taylor Loft, long pearls from Limited looped around neck, tan leather thong heels from Mossimo, silver cuff.

Hair is second day, straightened with a round brush and the dryer.

Makeup is L'Oreal True Match foundation in C3, concealer in W4-5, Nars blush in Orgasm, Revlon ColorStay shadow quad in Neutral Khakis – ivory in inner corners and along brow bone, khaki on lid, a bit of olive along lash line and in crease. Lashes curled and Max Factor's Lash Perfection in black applied. On lips is Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss in Shine that Pink.

PRODUCT REVIEW: Max Factor's Lash Perfection Mascara – My sister bought me this as a gift (she's such a good sister!) because she has hear great reviews and she knows how I am always ont he search for a good mascara. We so far, so good! it has one of those new-fangled rubbery brushes a la Cover Girl's Lash Exact, but seems to coat the lash more completely. I applied two coats without a hint of clumping or ickiness, it is flexible while giving dark and thick coverage, the brush helps grab the smaller lashes, and though I have been sneezing all day, it hasn't budged. I do think that DiorShow gives a better “false eyelashes” look, but this is an awesome choice for day look and an evening look for you who aren't trying to look like a drag queen (I myself desire that look 24/7). So if you are looking for a new mascara, I suggest you try this out!

    What anonymous said – me too, miss you!

    Willing to try the “Exact” mascara (how did you know I’m almost out!) Their “volume express” didn’t fare too well – had an allergic reaction. I’d received a sample of Lancome’s, “Definicils” and have practically scraped the sides dry. I love that stuff, but not enough to hand over $25 just yet ūüôā

    Allie, you look great – definitely have that healthy, “yoga glow.”

    Thanks for producing such a great website and resource.

    Hugs,
    Ava

    The green sweater is a favorite! Can’t wait to try the mascara. But where have you been? It’s Friday and I’ve been missing you this week! Hope you are well.

    I’ve been reading your blog lately to get some inspiration on what to wear. We have similar styles.

    When this green boatneck came up on Google Reader today, I thought what a fantastic color on you. You glowed!
