LA Winter

It's been so "cold" in LA!  When I wake up and it's in 40s...that's pretty darn cold for SoCal okay ;) All I want to wear is sweats...but this past weekend I decided to dress up for an adventurous day to the Griffith Observatory.

I'm wearing OTK boots from Forever 21 (sold out but similar here & here), vest from zara (on sale!), leather mini skirt from bb dakota (similar here), a turtleneck from j.crew (on sale!) and carrying my YSL wallet on a chain (my versionlambskin version).  

For my makeup, I went for a natural smokey eye.  The widget below lists all the products I used!  My makeup application is done in this order: eyebrows, eyeshadow, foundation, concealer, setting powder, contour powder, blush, lashes, lips.  Let me know if you want to see a specific tutorial!  I've been using the new Velvet Noir mascara from Marc Jacobs beauty, which I received to test & review from Influenster (sign up for free stuff!) and I really love it.  It gives me major volume when I'm not wearing lashes, and when I am, it's super dark color helps blend my real & falsies.

Thanks for reading! How are you staying cozy this winter? Do you have any special spots in LA you think I should go visit?  Let me know!
