The Great Gatsby Affair {Fashion Post}

Monday, April 25, 2016

Hi everyone! 

First, an apology. I promised a blog on Saturday and it just did not go according to plan. I will this week be writing about Career Changes in your late 20's as promised. I was just SO inspired by my friend's "Roaring 20's" party this weekend that I wanted to do a fashion blog post! 

Well, as an event planner I LOVE theme parties! SO much fun and even better when everyone goes all out for it! The best part was, I had ALL of the accessories and the entire outfit already and didn't pay a single dime for anything (except dry cleaning my old dress). 

First, the outfit. The dress and shoes were purchased about 5-6 years ago for a winter cruise holiday party. I thought it aligned well with the theme and was excited that I was getting more than one use! Plus I just adore Tulle anything.

I mean is there anything more fun than playing dress up?? 

Lastly, I wanted to go over my makeup look for the occasion. As stated in my Instagram today, I have a dream of having ALL cruelty-free makeup and products one day. However that overhaul is pricey so I'm doing it piece by piece, animal lovers of the world please bare with me! Below is what I currently have in my makeup collection.
