Given my crazy best friend's new boyfriend's prediliction for yachts
, I chose to go with a nautical theme for my outfit.
Here are, of course, the super-fantastic shoes:
I start with this navy wrap dress from Victoria's Secret for $59 (sale)
And I would of course wear this white camisole underneath for modesty's sake. ($12.99 from Target).
Of course, one cannot wear nylons with open toed shoes, so I musn't forget the legwax! ($5.99 from drugstore.com)
Or the nail polish for my toes! If people are going to admiring my super-fantastic shoes, my toes should be equally super-fantastic. I choose OPI's "I'm Not Really a Waitress" shade of red - my favorite red from them! OPI polish is $7.50 in most nail salons.
The next item is a handbag (which I already own, does that still count?) from Payless Shoes for $14.99 (sale):
I'd top off the outfit with this headscarf from Target ($6.99)
And finally I would add a necklace and earring set that I designed and made myself. Because I buy jewelry supplies in bulk, it is difficult to calculate the exact amount I spent on materials, but according to my calculations, $25 seems fair. The materials are Swarovski crystals (Montana) and Swarovski pearls (white) with a sterling silver charm and accents.
At this point I would realize that I have $69.74 left, and will decide, instead of paying my rent early, that I will also get some super-fantastic makeup to go with my outfit.
I'd start with Very Sexy eyeliner in Exotic Plum (I have brown eyes, and deep purple shades make them pop) from Victoria's Secret ($10)
which I would spice up with some Very Sexy Dazzling Liquid eyeshadow in "Wanting" ($12, also from Victoria's Secret)
I would tone down the shimmer with some touches of the earth tones from the Very Sexy mosaic eye shadow in "Sultry" ($18, Victoria's Secret)
And my mascara's been looking a bit clumpy, so I might as well restock on my supply of Very Sexy Mascara. ($12, Victoria's Secret)
I would go with a simple lip gloss, to counteract the dramatic eyes. I love minty lip glosses, as they act as breath fresheners. I prefer Beauty Rush Lip gloss from Victoria's Secret. They are 2/$10. (I obviously couldn't resist getting another shade for the second date.)
This leaves me with $5.54 to put into my super-fantastic shoe fund jar.
