One of my favorite colors is blue. The janitor and all my Spanish speaking students call me Ms. Azul, which I adore and think is soooo cute since I want to be a Cubanita in my next life. Only my dear friend Abdi understands this desire. I rarely wear shades of blue together purposely but this look just came to me and seemed right. The shirt dress is really old from everyone’s one stop shop for all your needs boutique. That would be Target! We can all agree it is the store that you can’t just visit the grocery section or beauty products. You spend more than $20 bucks each visit. Right?
The pumps are from Aldo. I purchased them when the nude crazy was jumped off. I have a ‘friend’ who is a fashionable diva dude (yes, he knows I call him this). He wasn’t crazy about them. His response when I asked his opinion before purchasing was they were an ok shoe for work.
Well in these photos with my 69cent tights from Goodwill, my shoes went from plan jane to stylish educator! Don’t you think so? I also have a matching clutch but didn’t carry it the day I wore this outfit. On my next tattoo adventure I’d like a butterfly until that time my brooch will have to serve as my representation of freedom that I am longing for.
The sweater was a December gift from my mom during our Goodwill excursion during her Christmas visit. We walked away with two large bags of goodies for less than $50. Thankful for her senior discount J! The belt was a snagged thrifting as well.
This final shot KT did was perfection for me. I’ve been really paying attention to the makeup advice on Twitter from Sam Fine and other great makeup artists. I think my blush was Exhibit A and the lippie was Viva Glam IV. I felt beautiful after seeing the picture because I didn’t look made up.
Ms. Azul *aka*
