Flattering Dresses Under $100 + Color Intense Lipstick

Hello lovelies,

Happy weekend! Is there anything better than Saturday morning? Last night, I was fried from a day of filming. I ate a bag of chips and watched Jersey Shore Reunion. I love my bad TV.

I’m headed to the mall today to look for a dress with my daughter. I’ll likely pop into Nordstrom while I’m there to see if they have brought in any more cute spring things from the website. Their online game is strong with lots of cute spring pieces at a reasonable price.

I’m gravitating toward the comfort of dresses these days. Yesterday, one of the shows we taped for See Hear Love was on body image and I think my self-esteem is relatively strong. Sure, it would be fun to look like I did when I was 20, but I’m generally happy with myself now (I’m more worried about health and comfort, frankly.) I am a realist, however. Gone are the days where I can wear an unstructured jersey dress, as it either looks like sausage casing or a potato sack. So now I look for ruched or embellished jersey since it’s much more forgiving but equally comfortable.

I love these pieces from Nordstrom.

 

Leith Ruched Body Con Tank Dress (C$75)

 

Caslon Off Duty Tie Front Knit Dress (C$79)

They will be cute to throw on for shopping or brunch once the weather warms up!

I’m also looking forward to adding a bright lip colour into my arsenal. The beautiful Julie, who did my makeup yesterday, did a lovely, bright lip and it totally woke up my face. Beautycounter just released 8 bright shades for spring. Garden Party (far left) looks like a winner winner chicken dinner to me! As always, they are toxin-free (bright lip colours tend to be filled with more questionable dyes.)

Are you integrating any bargain spring finds into your wardrobe or makeup counter? Any fun plans for the weekend?

XO

Love to hear from you!
