Something Old and Something New

You know that feeling when you're opening the closet before an evening out and your eyes quickly dart from left to right... panic sets in and *gasp* there's nothing to wear.

Then, out of the corner a small shred of fabric sticks out and all is right in the universe, an old favourite comes to the rescue!

That was me a couple of nights ago, and this is the blouse that saved the night. It is by BCBG Max Azria and I have owned it for a long time. I hadn't worn it in over a year because the thin, slightly sheer silk-blend fabric makes it a "summer only" kind of piece.
From the front it is a rather plain and simple sleeveless blouse with high neckline, but from the back - insert artsy photo here -


I just knew I had to pair it with simple eye makeup.

My most recent eyeshadow purchase, Patina by MAC seemed perfect for the occasion.

Patina eyeshadow all over the lid, with a hint of Mulch eyeshadow (also by MAC) along the top and bottom lash lines. A bit of black eyeliner and mascara and done!
