A Tunic, a Lipstick and a Billy Joel...Hold the Phone, It's Friday!

It's Friday, my ladies! Hoo-ray and heck yes!

First off, if you haven't checked out A Blonde Ambition's style intern Lindy's post about Sophie Theallet today, you should do so...another glowing piece from the fabulous Miss Maddox.

Some randoms, which I'd like to discuss in detail with y'all since I really don't have anything better to talk about today:

1. So I always said, if I ever got married (which, apparently I am), that I would dance with my daddy to "Lullabye (Goodnight My Angel)" by Billy Joel. I was previewing that little gem night before last when, for no good reason other than I'm emotional right now, I started bawling. Happy tears, of course, but tears and running mascara nonetheless. Isn't it just beautiful? I can't wait to have our dad/daughter moment to this song next weekend!


2. Hold the phone...I'm getting married in 8 days?!?! Wow. Just wow.

3. What the haystacks am I gonna write about after this wedding?

4. Oh, yeah. Fashion and hair poofing. Duh.

5. Per yesterday's random post, I'm glad that I'm not the only one who has gotten completely sucked in to the vortex known as Dance Moms on Lifetime. At least we're all in this together.

6. I got the below tunic yesterday at Francesca's and I love it! It makes me feel skinny because it's nice and loose, which is great because it will make a nice 'eatin' outfit for tonight if when we go to Abuelo's to gorge ourselves with queso and chimichangas. (Thank you to my amazing iPhone fashion photographer/co-worker in marketing, Euni.)



A couple more things about the above pic:

a) Didn't find the exact top online, but this one is way similar.

b) I am wearing zero eye make-up in the pic, so forgive my lack of eyelashes and general appearance of being hit by a freight train.

c) Yep, my hair is blonder! I asked my stylist to really brighten me up for the big day next weekend and girlfriend delivered...love the soft, baby blonde color she achieved for me!

7. Yes, I am still eating copious amounts of Mexican food 8 days before I have to wear a form-fitting, white dress. I figure all dieting efforts at this point in the game are futile.

8. I got THE BEST lipstick yesterday at Sephora, which I'll probably rock on the Big Day. It's called Rouge Interdit Satin Lipstick in the color Beige Champagne and the maker is Givenchy. Mama likes!

9. I may or may not have also purchased a new pair of shoes that may or may not be the Michael Kors heels below...


10. Because I needed a new pair of shoes like Lindsay Lohan needs a cocktail.

Be blessed, lovelies-
