♡ Look for Less : Emmy Rossum ♡

Hi guys! Yvette here with my first look for less. Wine colored bottoms are super in style right now, so it's no surprise Hollywood's finest starlets are the first to rock this trend. Emmy Rossum was photographed wearing this beautiful pleated wine colored skirt, front-tie top, edgy heels and gorgeous Ralph Lauren crocodile bag. When I saw this look featured in Glamour magazine, I feel in love and immediately wanted to create an affordable alternative.

Emmy's purse alone is over $20,000! seen here my entire outfit cost less than $100! The jewelry I'm wearing I already had in my wardrobe and the rest I purchased at Ross, Love Culture, and Hope you guys like it. Enjoy!

Top - Love Culture (I ripped off the sleeves) $17 here

Criss Cross Pumps - Guess, Ross $35
Faux Crocodile Satchel - Kenneth Cole Reaction, Ross $25

Ardell Wildlash A Roaring Collection Fall 2012

Hi guys! Yvette here with a cool false lash blog post, just in time for Halloween. I went to Rite Aid today for some Thrifty ice cream and saw these awesome lashes!! Pick them up while they last, they're super cool, feather-like, flexible and medium in weight, I have a feeling they are going to go fast! They run for $7 at Rite-Aid which is not bad considering they come with its own glue and are fantasy lashes, which usually run around $12-$20 depending on where you go.

If you're new to false lashes, these might be too much for you, but if you're a false lash whore like me they'll feel like no thing ;)

These lashes have no name, which is kinda weird but they are all really pretty! There are 6 total, but I only have 4 out of the 6. In the visual below, is one of the lashes that I didn't purchase, but it wasn't in stock, hopefully I'll find them soon. Also, the other lashes that I didn't purchase are like the first picture but pure black instead of black with white polka dots. Enjoy!

These false lashes are all black and have triangle feathers sticking out throughout the lashes. These lashes are small in the inner corner and become larger towards the outer corner. In the inner 2/3 of the lash they are criss crossed and then flare out.

I used the glue that came with the lashes, it's not for me. If you can tell in this pictures where I'm looking down, the glue didn't grab on to my entire lid.

These false lashes are black with white circles. They are small at the inner and outer corners and progressively become larger towards the middle. They had these exact same lashes with the collection in all black, too.

These false lashes are green iridescent individual thin feather on a one strip band. They are medium in length in the inner corners and become really long towards the end. The individual feathers are green, blue, black and a tiny bit of gold.

These false lashes are black with blue circles. They are small in the corners and progressively become larger towards the center. They are super soft and lightweight.

Overall, I looove this collection! Hopefully Ruby and I can do some tutorials with these lashes. The glue that comes with the lashes isn't the best and I think I'm going to be sticking to the other glue Ardell has to offer, which is stronger in hold. My favorite lashes are the green and blue ones! But I have a feeling they are all going to disappear, so go grab them ASAP!!

Thanks for stopping by. If you have any questions please comment below :)
