Birthday OOTD and Makeup!

I had the best day ever and a huge thank you to my friends and family for making my birthday so special! I'm super excited about my outfit and makeup, so let's jump right in.

First, the dress. Everyone who reads this blog knows how much I adore structured dresses and Roland Mouret. So it's no wonder that I was counting down the days for the RM x BR collection to go on sale. I ordered a few dresses during the pre-sale and decided to keep this one. The shoulder straps really hang loose and I need to get them taken in but other than that, this dress is killer.

The dress fits amazing and is so flattering! While the dress is fitted, it's not skin-tight so I'm sure it will work great in a formal setting! I got cold, so I ended up wearing a denim jacket over the actual dress and it looked great as a casual outfit too. For fun, I also tried on a couple of tops over the dress and it looks like a high waisted pencil skirt under the top. I'm really happy that the dress is so versatile and so well made. Definitely buy it if you are looking for a classic fitted LBD. I got it in a size 8.

Dress - Roland Mouret for Banana Republic
Bag - Rebecca Minkoff Quilted Affair in Studded Scarlet
Shoes - Payless (so comfortable)
Necklace - Groopdealz (similar)
I paired the dress with my snazzy Rebecca Minkoff red bag. Since I had the bright red bag and a beautiful statement necklace up top, I decided to wear simple black pumps to complete the outfit.

For makeup, I kept things soft and simple. I played up my eyes with a mini cat-eye and a shimmery pink eyeshadow. The whole look is very wearable for everyday. I have no patience for eyeshadow and I reserve it for special occasions but I wear the rest every time I wear makeup! I skipped the matchy red lip and opted for a matte pink lip to compliment the eye makeup. Here is a list of the beauty products I used!

Eyeliner - Kat Von D  tattoo liner (Best.Eyeliner.Ever. Does not smudge or budge!!)
