Picture 0013Picture 008Hi all, writing to you from my new laptop. The other one I have had for almost three years and even the IT guys have decided it was possessed and had to be replaced and stop trying to fix it's weirdness. New laptop means a busy day – same load of work, but no cookies, no preferences set up – amazing how little shortcuts and prefs really do speed up your processes.

Anyway, on to what is important around here – my outfit! Black merino sweater dress from Banana Republic, black croco peeptoe heels from BCBGirls, silver cuff and hoops.

Hair is second day. A few pieces around the curling iron, some finger combing and that's about it.

Makeup is L'Oreal True Match concealer in W4-5, philosophy's The Supernatural in Beige, Nars blush in Orgasm, Revlon ColorStay shadow quad in Neutral Khakis – ivory in inner corners, khaki on lid. DiorShow mascara in black on curled lashes, thin line of Maybelline UltraLiner in black on top lash line. On lips is Revlon ColorGlide in Rum Radiance.

    Thanks so much! I posted the link in the post above this one – it’s a one-button shift or something of that sort. I believe in red and balck it’s both shown with a turtleneck underneath which really changes the look. But there’s a large plastic tonal button at the neckline.

    My 2nd Walgreens in two days, and this time the (not-very) helpful clerk told me that Revlon has discontinued the entire line. !!! Say it ain’t so! Off to search eBay…

    Okay, after thinking this for weeks, I must now just come out and be that stranger that passes you on the street and says “Cute hair!” Love the color, love the bangs, the whole package is just really beautiful on you. Please don’t change it soon so I can continue to gasp at your lovely photos 🙂

    I’m really liking the make-up look today – very sultry!

    You always look fab, but especially so when you wear the Rum Radiance lip color! It’s definitely YOUR color!

    You guys are too funny! No, no That Gal – if I did that and Nars Orgasm I would be my own personal disco ball! 🙂

    And as for what I said was ColorGlide, I guess it is called LipGlide and it’s still on the Revlon Site and places like Drugstore.com have a few of the sheer ones in stock (I also liked and cannot find any more). I’ll be honest, I haven’t looked for them lately and last time I bought it, it was at the grocery store and they are always behind the times. Off to search my local stores!

    Ok, so does Revlon still make the Color Glide lippie? I went searching for it today at my local Walgreen’s and they didn’t carry any at all, let alone Rum Radiance! Help me if you can, Obi Wan Ali – you’re my only hope. 😉

    Are you sure you’re not wearing “That Gal” today? Your skin looks glowing and fabulous today!

    Wow! I can’t decide what I like best – your cute dress, your bangin’ (ala Jonathan) hair, or your makeup! You look terrific! Thanks for the great fashion inspiration, as usual.
