beauty trend to try -- vintage-inspired.


ATTAINABLE: Women's Boatneck-Dolman Sweater Dress in Black Dots (also in Leopard and Gray Leopard)
www.oldnavy.com; $49.94 
I always get excited when sweater weather finally hits, and sweater dress season comes right along with it.  This darling little Old Navy piece has stolen my heart -- it's relaxed but still pretty and polished enough for running errands but slouchy enough for weekend wear.  While both other prints are perfectly charming, I'm completely smitten with this black-on-camel polka-dot piece: it's so versatile and the colors are perfect.

When it comes to my everyday look, I like to keep things pretty simple.  However, with the arrival of fall and the holiday season on the horizon, I'm looking to glam things up a bit.  Right now, I find myself so inspired by vintage looks.  Dramatic cat eyes, teased hair, Old Hollywood-worthy red lips... These looks are all so fresh and pretty and utterly feminine, and I've made it my mission to try them all.

I'm loving Old Navy too, and have that dress in the sweater version. It's still a bit too warm to wear it, but I'm waiting!
