rich and rare were the gems she wore.

Sometimes the perfect accessories can inspire the rest of your look. This happened to me recently!
I was lucky enough to receive a couple of  new accessories, and they totally inspired my hair, makeup, and outfit for a night out.

The gorgeous Paris-inspired earrings are from Clothing Loves (Left)
The heart-shaped ring (with Paris Hilton as Audrey Hepburn!) is from eFoxCity.

Going to dinner and a movie, I wanted to incorporate these accessories into a casual look, but keep it classic and polished at the same time. So, I opted for a simple updo with a bit of volume, a smokey cat-eye look with glowy cheeks, and pastel colours for the clothes.

This is how the look turned out:





What accessories have you added to your collection lately?

    1. Not a secret! I use a radiance primer from Laura Mercier, and Rimmel's Clean Finish foundation - it leaves your skin hydrated and really glowy! I am loving it at the moment.
