May is going to be a chatty month here on the blog, but sometimes its nice to break away from criticizing marketing claims every now and then. Don’t fret, it won’t only be text heavy posts. Unlike Monday, though, this is a little more light-hearted – I decided to go for it after reading The Suitably Named‘s I Heart Spring tag post.
1. Favorite Spring nail polish?
I don’t usually match my nails to the season – I really like feminine pinks for nails year-round, though – like Sensationail Pink Chiffon or China Glaze Gelaze (also in RNP) Exceptionally Gifted. Both are pretty Spring appropriate. I like yellows, too, but I have yet to find one that isn’t so streaky that it throws me into a fit of rage followed by depression.
2. Must have lip color for the Spring?
The blogger who inspired this tag has the same answer as I do! MAC Flamingo – I love it.
3. Favorite Spring dress?
Ah, I’ve been trying to up my dress game recently, so this is a good question! It’s a new one I purchased from White House Black Market at the outlets recently – I can’t find the exact style on their site, but it is very similar to this – except instead of black and white with a red belt, it’s red and like…ecru? with a black belt. Also I think the stripes are more consistent in width and placement. But the cut is the same, and it has pockets. It’s pretty nice though – fully lined, opaque, easily dressed up for either a wedding or work, or worn casually. I just need to get it altered!
There was a lovely taupe one with kind of a cherry blossom print on the skirt, but although my size fit my in the waist the bodice was constructed for a bustier woman than I – and the construction would have made for complicated alterations (sadness). It would have been really beautiful for Spring, but I couldn’t justify it even though I (and even my husband) really liked it.
