What I'm Wearing - 8/11/10

90 F, sunny
welcoming my boyfriend home!!

Today my boyfriend James came back from Hong Kong! 
So I got all dressed up for him =]
I'm sooo glad to have him back. 
He took these pictures of me, so you guys finally get to see some decent photos of me!

dress: boutique (fashion tomato)
shoes: aldo
earrings: gift
rose ring: not sure. i think wet seal.

This dress somehow reminds me of something a mermaid would wear, so I tried to keep that theme with my hair and makeup. 

While my hair was wet after washing, I ran some aloe gel through it, and then scrunched a ton of mousse into it. I used a claw clip to clip it up all scrunchy while it dried, and sprayed some salt water mix over it. When my hair was dry, I simply let it down, and clipped my bangs back with a bobby pin.

For my eye makeup, I used Lancome eyeshadow in "Bubbles" - it's a powder blue shadow with flecks of gold in it, which is great for those of us with olive/tan skin because it doesn't show up chalky, and doesn't wash you out. I dipped a brush in water and used a deeper turquoise (from an Urban Decay palette) to line my eyes, and then used black liquid liner (also Urban Decay), mascara, and highlight on the brow bone and in the inner corners.

Anyway, James will be living with me temporarily until the apartment he's subletting becomes available for him to move in. So he will be taking lots of pictures for me in the mean time! Yay for quality photos!

Also, I have a ridiculous amount of work to do over the next couple days, so I apologize in advance, as I probably won't be commenting on everyone's blogs as much. I'll be back once the weekend hits though. =]
