look book: barefoot princessa

November 18, 2011

This is the first time {and probably last} that I've ever done a post without shoes! I couldn't help getting a few photos in last week after I got my hair and makeup done for an upcoming Ruche tutorial. I knew it wouldn't last through the night, and luckily we have a somewhat empty bedroom since moving back in!
dress Ruche {old}, necklace c/o JewelMint, ring Tacori, belt vintage

The necklace I'm wearing has become a new favorite! I'm sure many of you know about JewelMint and how amazing it is. I love that they give customized recommendations to you each month to help build your "jewelry box." I chose this necklace because I was so intrigued by the concept. The pomander pendant necklace features a small perforated sphere that opens and closes with a magnetic clasp. They said you can put scented cotton inside and the perfume will stay with you all day. I just so happened to have a few last drops of my favorite Michael Kors perfume so I thought it would be the perfect choice. I love that the scent stays with me all day and yet it's not too overwhelming! Go check out JewelMint and see your personalized recommendations!

Have a great weekend everyone!

  4. Wow. I love the idea of spraying a bit of your favorite scent on a cotton ball and placing it inside the necklace. I am totally going to try that with one of my pendants! :-D

  46. i just recently found your blog, through pinterest. i was wondering if you wouldn't mind emailing me and telling me the brand/shades of your favorite lipsticks. you seem to be very good at picking them. :) i love the red in this post, but there's also a sweet peachy one you've worn in other posts and a nice fuschia in another... would you share those? i see you post all of the other things you're wearing (clothes, shoes, accessories) so i wonder if you wouldn't mind sharing your lipstick secrets too. :) please email me at jydardeau at yahoo dot com. thanks so much!!
