Have you ever seen a piece of clothing that is so representative of something else (like…makeup) that it makes you do a double-take? Today, I did.
This is the Milly Lou Lou Sheath in Tokyo Floral Print. If it strikes your heart in some kind of way, Off 5th has it for under $80 (down from $300+).
Far from fashionable or trendy, I stumbled across this dress entirely on accident and immediately thought,
Is that the Urban Decay Electric Palette in dress form?
Unfortunately, Urban Decay has discontinued their Urban Decay Electric palette. In spite of being wildly popular and highly-rated, I guess they wanted to move on to what they thought was bigger, better things. That’s unfortunate, but it did mean I was able to score one for $15 at my local Nordstrom Rack in person, but they’re available online for $23 (still over half off!).
I swear suffer from some neuroses where I want palettes rife with Exciting Colors…even though I know won’t wear them much. I was so excited about the KvD Mi Vida Loca holiday palette in 2015 but, like Urban Decay Electric, it would be silly to own. I couldn’t justify that especially at its cost at the time.
I could, however, justify not going out for lunch for two days to buy Electric. Even if I only use it at home for my own amusement, the entertainment value is there.
The Bottom Line
I’m not the blogger to ask for a look suggestion based on this palette to wear with that dress, nor am I suggesting that one ought to. Their powers combined would be too much.
