Ruched Dress and Confidence


Hello friends! This past Friday was our friend Bryan's dance night and that means it was time to get gussied up and stay out past our bedtimes. Good music, good friends and putting on our pointy dancing shoes is always worth it!


Don't understand what I was doing. Bat pose? Hahaha!

I don't wear a lot of fitted clothing or "bodycon" as a buzz word that the current fashion industry uses to describe clothing. I wanted to get over my current focus on the negative things I have been feeling and pull out something from the closet that has been ignored for quite a long time. After accessorizing the ruched style spaghetti strap dress with a little spider web shrug (it's from another dress), I quite enjoyed wearing this outfit!

Wearing; ruched dress (thrifted), spider web shrug (from a Lip Service dress, eBay), stockings (Lip Service, gifted), winklepickers (Demonia, eBay), collar (store in Toronto, ON), bat necklace (Alchemy Gothic), studded belt (thrifted), bat belt (eBay), spiked bracelet (eBay), bone cuff (Renn Faire, gift from Derek)


I'm not a makeup guru by any means, but I always searching for foundation that is a close match to my pale skin. I recently ordered a few things from ulta.com which included the Total Control Drop Foundation by NYX Cosmetics. This foundation comes in 24 shades and goes from extremely light to very deep, which I think is amazing! I ordered the shade Pale as I am usually the palest shade, but in this case I ordered the second palest shade. Oh my word, Pale is TOO pale for me! The foundation will now be club makeup as I prefer to look a little more "alive" in the daytime. Hahahaha! So, if you are extremely pale or want to pale out your skin, the Total Control Drop Foundation by NYX Cosmetics may be right for you. Notes: The foundation is a liquid foundation and can be a little messy, it took some finesse with the application.

Thank you for reading, until next time!

  3. Great outfit you look amazing. I recently converted to Nyx and swear by their eye shadows, fixing spray, liquid eyeliner and eyeliner pen.

    1. Thank you! I do love NYX as well, my normal makeup routine is almost 100% NYX. I love their liquid liners the most!

  4. I like to mix manic panics dreamtone in white to my foundation. It works well with any shade. ;)

    1. I have some of the dreamtone and it doesn't seem to work for me. I tried mixing it with a variety of foundations and I feel like I may have gotten an expired bottle as it's always streaky and doesn't mix well. Glad it works for you!!!! :)
