Frugal Fashionista : Stylish Vince Camuto shoes all under $100

6 Dec

Not sure about the rest of the country, but I am still very much pinching my pennies these days. In fact, after looking through my make up I have found 912381 products I rarely use and some even are still in their original packaging.FOR SHAME! I put myself on a make up no buy until January 5th. During the next month, I hope to be able to swatch and review the many products I have stashed in my apt. And furthermore save some cash! I haven’t really spent much money on clothing and shoes-which I actually do need, believe it or not.

I hope to also blog more about less expensive fashion and give you make up looks with drugstore products, like this one.

Anyway, I’m really digging footwear from Vince Camuto. He has some cute and stylish things and I managed to find several pairs for under $100. Check em’ out…let me know what you think. Do any of you own any of his shoes?

Thank God it’s Friday…. This is one of my favorite Stevie Wonder songs. Stuff like this reminds me that good music and great performances are almost of thing of the past. Back on Monday with some new posts and goodies.

Enjoy, CB.

World AIDS day- supporting it, fashionably of course.

I realize this should have been done early, early this morning. Never too late though to spread awareness.

There are 33.4 million people living with HIV globally.

31.1 million are adults.

15 million are women.

You can also donate to charities and there are retailers such as MAC and Gap that have product lines that give proceeds to the cause. MAC Viva glam products donate every single penny to the cause. GAP product (Red) has been around for a few years, this line also donates proceeds to help women and children in Africa fight and prevent the spread of AIDS and HIV.

Check some of  the products out:

 

These stats are mind boggling. Do yourself a favor. Get tested, know your status. There are many places on a local level that offer free HIV testing. On your next annual exam ask for the test.

Nicki Minaj Pink Friday lipstick- swatches +pics

1 Dec

So I ordered it last week before that puppy was sold out. I actually ordered two, I can’t help it. I am a collector of sorts. It is a very, very pale pink and won’t be an easy task to pull off. I have not done a FOTD yet, I am off today, it is rainy and I decided no make up today. I only am required to wear it every single day at work, so bear with me. I know I owe you all pics of me wearing the Lanvin lip also. I am on it folks.

Anywho, here ya go!

 

The color shows a bit darker, but alas I have yet a new camera and I don’t know what the hell I am doing with the settings. No outdoor pic due to the monsoon.

FOTD will be up by some time next week. The lipstick will sell for three more Fridays, if you are unsure, order it anyway. You can always send it back or return at a MAC store. What are your thoughts?
