THREADS 4.11.12

This is what I wore on Easter Sunday! The skirt is actually a maxi dress, but I hate the way the "tie around the neck" feels on this dress, so I just tucked in the top part and wore it as a skirt. :)

If you aren't familiar with the lovely Laura, she has a beautiful blog and makes wonderful and creative jewelry. She sent me these earrings in the mail and I love them! Now that my hair is getting a little longer, I've been wanting to wear some more dramatic earrings and these are just perfect. I think the leather fringe and touch of lace is darling. If you're in the mood to "treat yo' self"...I suggest buying sometime special from her shop Roots & Feathers. ;)

Also! I've been on the search high and low for some great lipstick that doesn't make my lips feel dry and crusty (ew!) by the end of the day. I decided to try out the new Revlon Lip Butter colors and I am super happy with how it feels. It goes on almost like a chap-stick and makes my lips feel really moisturized. I currently have Red Velvet (what I'm wearing in the pictures), Cherry Tart, and Peach Parfait. If you buy them at a pharmacy you might be able to score a buy 1 get 1 50% off deal. ;) Hooray for good lipstick!

  4. I concur on the excellence of Revlon's Lip Butters! I want to buy every shade, even though I reaaaallly don't need anymore makeup, so I have to practice self-control when at the pharmacy :-P

  18. Ooo new lipstick to try! Thanks for sharing, I have the same problem with it. :) Usually I just reach for Burts Bees new tinted lip balm, it smells good too. Love that dress/skirt and feather ring!

  19. You look incredible. One of my favorite parts about having curly hair (that has the potential to get very big and poofy) is that you get to wear REALLY big earrings to complement it.
