Oh the day when I'll go to an event fancy enough to wear such a beautiful outfit... le *sigh*. But until then I'll wear these outfits to church on Sunday (yep... my social event of the week). In my dreams I would be going to a country club tea...
Where would you wear an outfit such as this??

If you happen to be that very lucky girl who is going to a fancy party this weekend, please tell all!

Look For Less: Amber Heard

Look For Less: Amber Heard




















Look For Less: Amber Heard by msclassicglamour featuring quilted handbags




Amber Heard is one of my style icons on and off the red carpet. She always looks so chic and romantic! 


I'm loving this black lace tunic and gold oxfords that she pairs with white ankle skinny jeans. The pink bag is a subtle pop of color, but it adds to the interest of the outfit. Pull your hair back, throw on sunnies and a dainty silver necklace and you're all set!


{P.S. Everything is under $50!}


Stay Beautiful!

The Makeup Question

Good Morning, Ladies! I hope your Friday has gotten off to a great start and you're ready for the weekend! What do you have planned?

Now on to today's topic! There's always been a question in my mind of how much makeup to wear. The debate between natural and glam is constantly running through my mind. Yes, I still want to look like myself after I put on my makeup, but I also don't want to look like I just rolled out of bed and didn't take any time to polish up a bit. I think there's a fine line, as with anything in life. Balance and moderation is key. 

I like to wear minimal makeup for everyday because I don't feel I need much just to go to the grocery store. You know what I mean? So I believe I have found a happy medium (for myself anyway). I have found that if I put a little color on my lips my look is instantly more polished and glam. I basically just use mascara on my eyes with some highlight. Because on me, you can't really see my lid after I put mascara on. I also don't use blush or bronzer because I'm not naturally tan (so why add it?) and I already have pink in my cheeks naturally. 
So I feel you should work with what you have naturally and not add something you don't already have. That's what makes you special! 

Hare's an idea of what my everyday makeup looks like




So what's your take on makeup?? Do you prefer to go more natural or are you that lucky woman who can pull off that smokey eye?
{I'm so blonde and fair that a smokey eye looks terrible on me. :( Oh well...}

Stay Beautiful!

"High Society" Harper's Bazaar US August 2012

I ran across this beautiful editorial over the weekend while glancing through the August edition of Harper's Bazaar.

Any fashion shoot having to do with glamorous gowns, jewels, chandeliers and mansions I'm instantly mesmerized by!
This particular shoot was photographed by Karl Lagerfeld himself with the stunningly beautiful Anja Rubik and Melissa Tammerijn modeling. I don't include all of the pictures here, so go scan through the August issue if you haven't already.

Are you just as infatuated with this shoot as I am?







{I NEED those pink bow shoes she has on!}



{Notice the lip belt... SO CUTE!!}


Stay Beautiful!

The Statement Necklace

Hello! Welcome to Wednesday everyone! Give yourself a big pat on the back. You have made it once again to the middle of the week! I commend you!

Today I'm talking about something that's very near and dear to my heart... jewelry!! But not just any kind of jewelry... the necklace. But not just any kind of necklace... the statement necklace. Yes, the mother of all necklaces! The necklace that you can throw on with a white shirt and shorts and instantly look more stylish and put together. Not only that, they bring all the attention up towards your beautiful face and away from any "imperfections" you feel you may have in your bodily region. Now that's what I call a best friend!

So, without further ado, I introduce to you the gorgeousness that is the statement necklace!

{Drool along with me, ladies!}

I wish I knew where all these beauties came from and their prices... but, alas, I don't. 

But if I know me and my taste in jewelry they're probably in the hundreds of dollars. *sigh*

Have a lovely day!
Stay Beautiful!

Lip Cream Loving


Lip Cream Loving
Lip Cream Loving by msclassicglamour featuring NYX beauty products


I've been eyeing these babies for some time now... the color selection is gorgeous and perfect for summer. I'm not the biggest lipstick fan, but these provide the coverage and opaqueness of a lipstick with the shine and lightness of a lip gloss. Sounds like the perfect marriage of the two! At $6 each, I might have to run to Ulta to get all five! Plus, you can use Ulta's coupon to get an even sweeter deal.


Are you in love with these colors as much as I am?


Have a wonderful weekend!
Stay Beautiful!

4th of July


via pinterest


Happy 4th of July to all my U.S. readers! I hope you have a fantastic day filled with family, friends and plenty of happy memories. Maybe some fireworks mixed in there with some delicious food... sounds like perfection!

With all of the festivities take some time to remember why we celebrate this day in history... the day we gained independence from England (we love you England!) and became an independent nation under God, dependent on Him. I'm so thankful for this country and what it stands for and what it believes. I don't know where the world would be today if those 13 colonies had not banded together to declare their independence from the Motherland. 

Thank you to everyone who has sacrificed to give Americans the many freedoms we enjoy day after day. 
God bless the U.S.A.!!


Stay Beautiful!

Elizabeth

Fireworks!


Fireworks!

Fireworks! by jesusekb featuring a button up skirt



Happy Monday! I hope you all had a fantastic weekend and are ready for the 4th on Wednesday. What do you have planned for the big day? For me, fireworks are always a must. But it gets pretty hot sitting outside waiting for the sun to go down in order for those fireworks to start, don't you think?


This outfit will keep you cool with the skirt and sleeveless peplum blouse... I wanted to give you an alternative to the typical American Flag t-shirt with denim shorts look. Which is fine, but you want to stand out, right?


The accessories add that touch of Americana without you looking like an American flag (not a cute look). Add a touch of red lip gloss and nude nails and you're ready for that BBQ. Please don't forget sunscreen either!


I hope this outfit inspires you to be the belle of the BBQ on the 4th!


Stay Beautiful!
