Another adventure in shopping...


So while perusing the mall on my lunch break, I stopped by South Moon Under and picked up this totally cute Sweet Pea camisole off the sale rack. I wanted something cute because I am throwing myself a birthday party on Saturday so of course I want to look fabulous! I'll most likely throw a cami underneath it to keep the cleavage minimal. This Sweet Pea top will look great with white or black and I could even wear in the fall with a cardigan or over a fitted black tee. I'll probably wear it to work in the morning because I love it so much!

Birthday Flowers!

My roommate Shula got me yellow roses!

Yay for birthday cake!

The sweet surprise from my roommates!

The bag is mine!


Dear Rafe for Target,

Thank you for going on sale! By doing so, I even more justified purchasing you. I will love you and carry you even into fall because I do love carrying colorful purses. So thank you for making me a happy girl!

Love,
RVAfashionista

ps. My other "justification" is that I cleaned out my purse collection and gave some to my mother.

New haircut!



My haircut is by the lovely Michelle at the Alexander Cahen Hair Studio. She's been cutting my hair the last three years and does a wonderful (yet affordable... as in a $23 haircut) job! The salon's number is (804)288-4922 if you'd like to book an appointment with her. She also does color and highlights too!

Lots o' new stuff!

I need to seriously start updating in small little bits as opposed to one giant entry like this one is going to morph into...

Last Monday (July 9th) I had lunch with the fabulous ChicArmoire and it was so nice to catch up with her and gossip/talk fashion/etc. I proceeded to head over to Regency Square which houses the only Sephora and Forever21 in the metro Richmond area. To be honest, I was rather disgusted with Sephora since no one bothered to greet me or even give a nod in my direction. *sigh* I poked around there for a good 15 minutes and left. So instead I spent my money on a pair of $10 pants at Express as well as some sale earrings and a t-shirt for my boyfriend. I decided to pop into The Body Shop and both of the sales associates there were very knowledgeable and nice! I bought two concealers - Lightening Touch and the Ultra Smooth Liquid Concealer. I know it's sad that I now use three concealers on a consistent basis but it's a pain to rid myself of those dark circles, shadows, and leftover acne marks. I also like Physicians Formula's Conceal Rx. So I have a habit of mixing my concealers to fit my needs...

I spent the rest of the week working and then after much deliberation, I decided to get my hair cut again... This time it's even shorter but sassier! My stylist Michelle and I both felt that Victoria Beckham's latest look would suit me quite well. This is definitely a great cut for fine, thin hair like mine. However, because this look is so angled and sharp - proper makeup application is a must with this look. At the bare minimum, brows must be done and blush/bronzer applied to enhance the facial bone structure. I've been sticking to similar variations of an angled bob for the last few years and I was finally ready for a big change! I definitely need to post my own pictures of my new cut!

On Sunday I ran over to Delia's on my lunch break and picked up a pair of their Morgan Low-Rise Skinny jeans. They had a deal where if you tried on any pair of jeans, you got a $10 gift card. I also picked up in orange and white the Solid Ruby V-Neck which is great layered with a cami or two underneath. We all know I'm all about the layers!

Now I need to hop in the shower and get ready for work... Hopefully my next post won't be as long and as sporadic!
