This past Thanksgiving, I decided I wanted to look a little sexy, but not overly dressed.  I decided to wear some items I haven’t worn in a long time.  One of them are a pair of sequin leggings I purchased from ASOS about two years ago.  My husband hates them! He calls them “dance twirl pants”.  I paired the leggings with a sheer high-low dress my bestie gave to me from H&M, and my Sam Edelman Viva Wedge Booties I bought from Piperlime.   Those were a great buy! I got them for like $90.

I apologize in advance for crappy pictures. I took the photos with my iPhone.


For makeup, I went for a nice plum eyeshadow and added black to smoke it out.  I am loving this IT Cosmetics Luxe High Performance Eyeshadow Palette. The colors are amazing! Review and swatches coming soon!
