Stressed But Well Dressed


Stressed But Well Dressed Zara White Clutch Crop Top

Summer’s in Seattle are what dreams are made of. Shopping, on the other hand, is more often times a nightmare. That’s why I prefer to shop online. I snagged this clutch from Poshmark.

Poshmark is a website and also a very convenient app for buying and selling clothes. Imagine eBay but WAY better, easier, and there’s no listing fees. Poshmark provides shipping labels for free and they take just 20% commission.

Sunny Seattle Sunday

There’s not much better than a sunny day in Seattle. Despite what everyone says, it does NOT always rain here. The sun is out, the sky is blue, and I’m thirsty for a mimosa with a side of gossip with my gal pals.

I’m embracing Spring by popping this amazing orange color on my fingernails. Originally I had chosen a pink polish but as I got my manicure yesterday, I spotted the chick next to me using this China Glaze color and I had to have it! Flip Flop Fantasy is so cute and it matched my mimosa. Cheers!

An amazing Coastal Scents eye shadow palette I had purchased a year ago from Hautelook came in handy. I pulled the look together using the Milani baked blush in “Luminoso,” an orange tinted lipstick with a coat of Nars gloss in “Orgasm.”
