My dress was something I’ve been waiting to whip out for weeks. If you’ve been following along Let’s Face It or Merritt’s blog, The Style Scribe, you’ve seen this show stopper. I fell in love with this dress when I saw it this summer but had nowhere to wear it to. Once I saw it in my favorite colors green and blue, I knew I couldn’t wait any longer to get it into my closet. This dress is a work of art and I couldn’t wait to play up all of the amazing colors it had in my eye makeup.
What I did on me:
Because I could choose just one look or color I decided to put EVERY color I had in my makeup kit to accentuate the embroidered details. It might be an abrasive look but I LOVED every bit of it.
