Alison 208Alison 209This weekend will be all about getting myself organized. I had an outfit planned out, and then I couldn't find a single pair of tights that weren't footless or argyle. Argh! I gave up on the outfit, and put on this. Pants still fresh from the cleaners, and a sweater that hasn't yet been worn since it was washed. So my hair and makeup don't match this outfit… whatever. I'll know where my tights are by Monday.

Black stretch merino crewneck from Banana Republic, ivory wool blend trousers from Ann Taylor, faux tortoise shell necklace from Target, black booties from Sudini.

Hair is second day – used the iron to smooth and bedhead. No product.

Makeup is Revol ColorStay under eye concealer in Light Medium, philosophy The Supernatural in Beige, Nars blush in Orgasm, Sephora's chubby eye pencil in Gray around lash lines and smudged on lid as shadow. Lashes curled, two coats of Benefit's Bad Gal Lash and one of Imju Fiberwig. On lips is Body Shop Sheer Lipcolor in Sheer Strawberry.

Happy belated Valentine's Day to all of you! Nothing terribly exciting for me and Mr. Allie – went to work, came home, made homemade pizzas (mmm I sauteed red peppers, pepperoncinis, onion and faux pepperoni with a bit of olive oil and crushed red pepper, put it between the sauce and cheese and it was goooood!) and watched Lost. Valentine's Day is not that important of a holiday to me – I feel loved every day of the year by someone and I hope that those I love know my feelings all year long as well. Do know though, I planned on wearing my Nine West Mary Janes with the red heels to celebrate the day!

  1. I wouldn’t have known your hair and outfit didn’t match unless you told me (and then explained). You look great! Don’t you love fresh from the cleaners clothes?

  2. Thanks for the response. I see where you’re coming from now, but you were still very chic yesterday (and always). Have a great weekend. Normajeanmobean (can’t remember my password to login).

  3. Awww, not too visible in the picture, but my makeup and hair was more rocker, the liner is a bit sparkly and my hair was very piecey. Not my usual combo for such a traditional outfit πŸ™‚

  4. Call me fashion faux pax, but I’m curious as to why you think your hair and make-up don’t match your outfit. You always look pulled together to me. And you’ve been such in inspiration in getting my closet in order!

  5. I wish you had worn the red pepper Mary Janes. Okay, I know you didn’t describe them as red pepper. It’s just that the imagery of the pizza stayed with me until the final sentence. πŸ˜‰
