Preppy Outfits and Pre-Bangs

11:45 AM

So I realized that since I cut my bangs, I have a lot of back-logged photos that I need to catch up on posting. LOL. I'll try to get the majority of them up soon so that I don't look crazy going back and forth with bangs and no bangs. Most likely, it will hop back and forth anyway so please disregard any random hair changes.

I am really one of those Dolly Surprise dolls from the late 80's/early 90's where you pump the arm and their hair magically grows.

So anyway, I have two outfits for you guys today that lean a little preppy. Maybe not traditionally preppy, but my own version of preppy. ;)

Here's what I used for the first look:
* Stila Pearl Palette (purple and golden-white)
* Urban Decay 24/7 Liner in Electric
* Lancome Photogenic Concealer in Camee
* Maybelline lippy in Pink Please

Also, using Wonder Eyelid Tape here. Purple shadow is patted on top of Electric blue eyeliner.

Preppy outfit #1:
Collared shirt - Hollister, Grey boyfriend cardigan - F21, Purple tank dress - Marshall's, Grey leggings - F21, Belt - vintage, Bag - Coach, Shoes - BCBGirls

My second look I unfortunately didn't take a photo of what I used so I can't remember, but I thought I'd post anyway. :P I believe it was a "natural" take on this post on DSK jewelry.

Close-up. I really love lining the lower lash line with purple.

Who doesn't love bathroom pics? XD
Not sure if you can see here, but instead of a traditional pomp, I twisted my hair and pinned it to the side.

Preppy outfit #2:
Denim blazer - Abercrombie kids, Sweater dress - Bitten, Leggings - Target, Booties - Me Too

Now, I gotta say Coach isn't my favorite brand but it is really nice for classic looks like this. And leggings are a must for wearing dresses in colder weather. Petites can't really afford to wear dresses that fall below their knees at any season and I prefer mine short for a longer leg line.

Both of these looks work well because there is a nice structure going on in the upper-half of the body. Key points are the belt in the first look and the jacket in the second. They both are a couple of my favorite ways to easily pull a look together.

  2. Beautiful eye makeup! Can I ask, are you lining the bottom waterline the lash line? Thanks =)

  3. LOL @ dolly surprise... and loves your style! the lining of the lower line = I like!

  4. Gemma: Aw, thank you! And I KNOW about BCBGirls... They are really comfy! I can wear these all day and night. :D

    Babybubblz: Thanks! I usually just line the actual lash line instead of the waterline, since my eyes are a bit sensitive. Looks like I did a bit of a messy job here and it got on my waterline too but it wasn't intentional! I find that for the most part with more natural looks, lining the lash line opens your eyes up more than the waterline. :)

    Dana: Aww, hehe. Dolly surprise is so creepy, isn't it? That's Kirsten Dunst in the commercial I linked too!

    Stephanie: Good luck! Haha... Don't give up if it doesn't work the first time, it has a learning curve. ;)

  11. love all your outfit looks, you look super adorable!!! I am jealous you get to shop at AF kids or any kid sized clothing, they usually have the most adorable pieces and very reasonable prices too! I can never find anything from the kids section that fits, except form maybe the boy's section, which won't work LOLLLLL
