Wow, my first outfit of the day post! Haha. I went to a surprise birthday party for one of my mom's college friends because my mom brought me along with her. It was kinda boring, of course, since I didn't really know anyone there...but hey, free food! Haha. Plus it was a chance to dress up, so I didn't mind.

Of course I just used the blue dress I used in the photos in my weight loss post, but this time I used black accents instead of red. I had nothing else to wear and we were supposed to leave at 7PM and I'd started getting ready at 6 so I was in such a huge hurry I barely even managed to straighten my hair and do my makeup.

*Little trivia about my dress: I sewed it from scratch myself!

For my FOTD I just spot concealed (because I broke out in the middle of my cycle--don't you HATE that?), used pressed powder and contoured my cheeks with bronzer and used NYX powder blush in Pinky. I filled in my brows, too, of course. For my eyes, since I had basically no time to do anything... I just put shimmery nude cream eyeshadow on my eyelids and I lined my eyes in Jordana kohl eyeliner (in blue) and of course I curled my lashes and applied mascara. I used NYX round lipstick in tea rose for my lips. All in all it was a simple, rushrushrushed FOTD.

I managed to look okay despite having just an hour to get ready...whoo!

Funny story, I woke up that morning with my left eye SWOLLEN. Like I got punched out, or bitten by a bug in my sleep. Thankfully because I put ice on it nearly all day, it went down by 6PM (I guess now you know why I only had an hour to get ready!).

I wish I could show you my shoes, but they weren't really anything new... They were the same shoes I wore in this picture.

Practically the whole time I was just sitting there looking around and trying to find someone to talk to, but yeah..nobody even remotely close to my age. Lol. Oh well, it was nice to people watch anyway.

I'll have a better post for you guys soon, I promise! :)
