Outfit of the Day & MAC Eyeshadow Rave!

This outfit isn't from today, but I thought I'd post it anyway. It's one of the dresses I got on sale at Zara that has the Grecian-style draped front.

As I've said before, I love dresses for work because it's so EASY. It's one piece, maybe a belt, throw a sweater on top and you're good to go.  I must admit I've been struggling with dresses lately.  I haven't been able to find any great, appropriate-length dresses when I shop. I am almost 100% sure that as more of the fall clothes come in, that will change. I really love the heavier-fabric dresses for the winter. I saw a great one recently at Banana Republic that was about $150. Maybe when it's on sale!
Dress- Zara
Cardigan- White House Black Market
Shoes- Michael Kors
Belt- J. Crew

I've also been using a new eyeshadow color by MAC to line my lower lashline called "copperplate" and I really love it. It's a bit softer/lighter than my usual MAC "brun." I would say this color is a must-have for anyone who wants to give their eyes a little pop but remain neutral and somewhat natural looking.

I think it looks nice and natural while still defining the eyes.

Oh, and for those wondering, I did end up converting the bow earrings I bought last week at CR into a necklace:
Pretty cute!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful week. My weekend plans include reuniting with the bestie (she's been traveling) and maybe doing a little shopping.  I haven't been to F21 in forever and I'd also love to use my GAP groupon...I'll be sure to do a post if I end up buying anything.




  1. I am so in love with your Marc by Marc Jacobs handbag! Love your necklace too, what a great DIY! I have one similiar and I love it.

  2. Hey! Not sure if you heard of the deal they have going on this weekend....you pick a charity to receive 5% of your purchase and you get a 30% off coupon to use in store (re-usable and share-able) to Old Navy, Banana Republic and Gap. http://www.gapinc.com/giveandget/picknonprofit/

  3. thanks so much jennifer I was wondering about that! awesome- i wonder if that applies when you use a Groupon?

  4. I know it does say it can't be used in combination with other sales or discounts but maybe that doesn't apply to Groupon discounts? You can use it at outlets though. I wish it was online because I'm dying to get a pair of Gap True Straight black pants but they don't sell petite in stores! :-(

  5. Veronika, I LOVE your blog! It inspired me to start my own... and to go out and pick up the M by MJ hobo :)

  6. thanks amber :) I actually just use a curler and that's what makes them look that way (and mascara of course!) without the curler they aren't great!

  7. I don't usually line my lower lashes with shadow, but I'm going to try it. It looks pretty. Thanks for the tip! :)

  8. I love your jcrew belt and MK bag...I can't get over how lovely that bag is! You inspired me to get the jcrew belts - I found it in pink and brown - wish I had picked up black as well!

    I also love the flowers behind you - are they real or fake? They look so elegant!

  9. ella- they are fake :) I just love having flowers in the house but fresh ones die so I get pretty-looking fakes :)

  10. I love the eyeshadow color! It is still very natural looking, which is what I like to wear too. I hope I can make it to the mall this weekend too; I have lots of coupons burning a hole in my pocket!

  11. The Gap Groupon cannot be combined with ANY other types of discounts.

    The Gap Give & Get however, can be combined with the Gap Inc. reward coupons.

    To the ladies that need an online code, I have a few left!! (I work for Gap) If you wan one, email me at mwoods6107 AT gmail DOT com

  12. That dress is adorable, you always find the best things at Zara! The last time i went in, I didn't have any luck :( have a blast this weekend with your friend! I was just on F21's website and they added a LOT of new merchandise! Get your wallet ready! Haha

  13. Love all your posts!! You actually inspired me to start my own Blog a couple of days ago, check it out luckysparkle.blogspot.com =)Nothing compare to your but Its a lot of fun and great time waster.. Love everything about your blog, keep it up =)

  14. I love your necklace (I love anything with bows)!

    By the way, have you been to the F21 in The Woodlands? They just expanded it, and I heard on the radio that it's the biggest one in Houston now. I haven't been yet, but I planned on stopping by sometime this holiday season.

  15. hey alexis! :) I haven't been to the woodlands F21 yet but I definitely plan to make the trip up there sometime soon!

    have a great weekend!

  16. Hey Veronika, Great post dear. I really liked it. I am a fashion designer and also have good sense about the dressings. The image you have shown in your blog is complete rave outfits. That's really amazing. If you wanna discuss about it then get back to me. Good Job.
