Red + Lavender // KCFW

What goes better with a red dress than a nude lip and dark eye (two of Ulta’s top spring beauty trends)?!  Red and lavender, that’s what.  It’s an unusual color combination, but in the right hues, it really works!  I am in love with this Erin Fetherston Chiffon dress, and I cannot lie: I love, love, loved getting multiple compliments on it – who doesn’t love a compliment?

Beauty trends with Ulta on

I met up with Meg pre-show for an Ulta cocktail party, and we talked shop, met new bloggers, caught up with old friends and oohed-and-ahhed over their super soft It Brushes for Ulta (seriously, go into any Ulta store and just try not to rub your fingers along the display!)  Then we sat front-row (I’m allowed to brag just a little right?  “If you’re not in the first two rows, you don’t matter.” ~ P-Trique. <totally kidding>) where we oohed-and-ahhed over some incredible pieces. I’m old(er) and had to head home before my carriage turned back into a pumpkin <wink>.  Be sure to check out to see what she wore to KCFW, and how she did her makeup!
