Recent Purchases

I have some weddings and bachelorette parties coming up and needed to find some dresses for all of them. I've been searching through my closet, but with all the showers and weddings this past year, everything has been worn a ton and I have a ton of pictures in them. I needed something new, so I bought two dresses that can be worn a few times and then I'm going to borrow a few others for the other events.

Seychelles One Shoulder Hot Pink Dress
When I saw this dress, it just screamed my name! I bought it instantly. First, it's one-shouldered which is kind of my signature dress, and second it's hot pink which is one of my favorite colors. Can it not be more perfect? I got it from Lulus and they're already sold out, but if you like it, keep an eye out because they often re-stock similar dresses like this. 

Fitted Lace Dress (ProductCode: 2000016165)
The dress is from Forever 21 (you can find it here but I gave the product code because their links rarely work) and it so much cuter in person. I can't wait to wear it and show you guys the pics, it's lovely. The lace and gold details are really pretty. I feel like the sleeves make it more versatile, the fabric is extra stretchy and it's really comfortable. They had it last year too, but I didn't bite the bullet. I'm so glad they had it again!

For both dresses I picked up some simple gold hoops and bracelets and I'm going to wear it with some strappy gold sandals I picked up a few months ago on sale at Nordstroms. I love when accessories and shoes can double on trips, it makes packing so much easier.
Urban Decay Naked Palette
Dun, dun, dun. I finally picked up Urban Decay Naked Palette! I've had my eye on it for-evah and when I got a 20% off coupon for my entire purchase at Ulta, I couldn't pass this puppy up. I figured I'd never get it for such a great price again. I haven't opened it yet, but I'm dying to try it out. I'm kind of saving it for a special event or something. Do you ever do that, buy something simple but save it for something special?

Oh and if you follow me on Twitter, you've seen this, but I wanted to tell everyone that my DV by Dolce Vita 'Dakota' Sandal from this Recent Purchase post is on sale at Nordstrom's. They're seriously so cute, easy to dress up or down, and really comfortable. They're my favorite sandal by far. I'm thinking about getting them in black now....

What have you guys been buying lately? It's such an awkward buying time right now in stores because they're all stocking up with fall stuff and I'm in no way ready for fall. Especially with such hot days!
