Finally I get a chance to show you the look I wore Saturday night to a beach wedding in Mexico. I went for an of-the-moment nude dress since I had been dying for an opportunity to wear one. I was torn between wearing it with nude heels or black heels because I had decided to add a black belt to the ensemble, but ended up going for the nude choice, the lighter color felt more beach appropriate.
Now, one of my favorite things about this look is my hair and makeup. The wedding was nearby my hometown and I have been going to the same stylist there for over 10 years. She’s absolutely brilliant, seriously Hollywood stylists got nothing on her. We decided to do a deep red, almost burgundy, lip color, which I adored so much I ended up buying it on the spot. And the hair, a side updo with retro waves, I loved just as much.
So, what do you think of the dramatic lip, will you be wearing darker lips this season?
I am back in Mexico, attended a family wedding last night, and I can’t wait to show you the pictures of the look I wore. I loved my dress, and I really really loved my hair & makeup, which were a creation of the stylist I’ve been going to in my hometown for over 10 years. I hope I can post the pictures some time in the next couple of days, but in the mean time I leave you with a little preview featuring one of my favorite things about last night’s look… My new deep red (almost burgundy!) lip color.
I know the presidential elections here in the US are not happening for another 10 days, but my title for this post refers to a much shallower subject… The voting you guys did on the Facebook page of abril’s corner. For those of you who missed it and don’t know what I’m talking about, here’s the story: I had been searching for the perfect leopard pumps for a while, and finally found two pairs the look like good candidates, one pointy toe pair and one round toe pair; I was indecisive between the two so I figured I would ask for help from you, my beloved readers, through Facebook. I really appreciate the fact that many of you took the time to share your opinion with me. However, I still wasn’t sure which way to go when I stumbled upon a third pair, not too pointy not too round, just perfect! So I ended up going with option #3. What do you think about my choice?

Now, with this decision made, I can cross one more item off my never ending wish list. The rest of the items left on it at the moment, and ones I’ll be keeping an eye out for on my following shopping excursions, are these:
