Hello!  Hope you are off to a great start to a new week.  I came back on the blog today with a few new things I wanted to try out. The first thing I wanted to try out was '60's inspired makeup.  I've seen this type of eye makeup worn in a few runway shows and I wanted to have some fun and experiment with some dramatic makeup.  How do you feel about wearing dramatic makeup?  Amy at Salon Pop did an amazing job!  She used Aveda products and I was extremely impressed.  The Aveda moisturizing cream feels wonderful and is super hydrating.  I would definitely go back to buy that.  She also styled my hair just the way I like it.  What do you think?

It's still gloomy and windy every few days over here, so I can wear boots if I want to:)  Hence, the boots in May.  What do you think about wearing midi skirts and accordion skirts?  This skirt has it all.  I stumbled upon it one day thrifting for vintage finds and never thought I would fall in love with a midi.  To be quite honest, I feel they make me look even shorter than I already am.  However, this skirt isn't your typical midi, it has a zig zag accordion design.  And it was in navy, who doesn't love navy?

One of my favorite colors is gray.  This blazer is so versatile (even though it's velvet) because it is in a lighter color and can transition more easily.  It gives an outfit a more luxe feel when paired with a flowy white sun dress or white jeans.  I especially love wearing this neutral as an alternative to black in the spring and summer months.  It goes well with pastels like you see here paired with this lovely lavender Marc Jacobs bag and compliments brighter summer palettes like tangerine as well.

Hope you liked this one.  Make it a great Monday!

    1. Thank you Terry! I wish they made more velvet blazers in different colors. They look great on men too, very 1920's.

  6. Your makeup looks so good! The 60's inspired makeup definitely suits you. I love all the bounce in your hair - I always try re-creating this at home after my hairdresser does such an amazing job but it never end up looking the same lol. I love this entire ensemble. Hope ur having an awesome weekend Joanna!

  7. I absolutely love your dramatic make up! I would love to try it myself, but as I'm not very good with make up, I think I will just do what you did....and go see a professional! Your hair also looks amazing. Flawless make up and hairdo, they did a great job at that saloon. You always look beautiful with or without make up, but it is fun to see you with a diffent make up look.

    The outfit is gorgeous too! I love how you belted that blazer...and that navy midi skirt is a real fashion treasure. I love midi skirts and pleated ones are my fav. In fact I have one grey (pleated) midi skirt that I wear all the time.

  10. Oooo I love how this a different look for you Joanna! I love the colour of the skirt, I'm 5'1 and I find that really short skirts, shorts or dresses are what works for my height or stopping above the knee or full length anything 3/4 on me doesn't really work. Loving the lavender bag too!

  13. Assalamualaikum Salam sejahtera untuk kita semua, Sengaja ingin menulis
    sedikit kesaksian untuk berbagi, barangkali ada teman-teman yang sedang
    kesulitan masalah keuangan, Awal mula saya mengamalkan Pesugihan Tanpa
    Tumbal karena usaha saya bangkrut dan saya menanggung hutang sebesar
    1M saya sters hampir bunuh diri tidak tau harus bagaimana agar bisa
    melunasi hutang saya, saya coba buka-buka internet dan saya bertemu
    dengan KYAI SOLEH PATI, awalnya saya ragu dan tidak percaya tapi selama 3 hari
    saya berpikir, saya akhirnya bergabung dan menghubungi KYAI SOLEH PATI
    kata Pak.kyai pesugihan yang cocok untuk saya adalah pesugihan
    penarikan uang gaib 4Milyar dengan tumbal hewan, Semua petunjuk saya ikuti
    dan hanya 1 hari Astagfirullahallazim, Alhamdulilah akhirnya 4M yang saya
    minta benar benar ada di tangan saya semua hutang saya lunas dan sisanya
    buat modal usaha. sekarang rumah sudah punya dan mobil pun sudah ada.
    Maka dari itu, setiap kali ada teman saya yang mengeluhkan nasibnya, saya
    sering menyarankan untuk menghubungi KYAI SOLEH PATI Di Tlp 0852-2589-0869
    Atau Kunjungi Situs KYAI www.pesugihan-uang-ghaib.com agar di
    berikan arahan. Supaya tidak langsung datang ke jawa timur, saya sendiri dulu
    hanya berkonsultasi jarak jauh. Alhamdulillah, hasilnya sangat baik, jika ingin
