Fashion Beauty Queries: Vol. IV, No. Six
Feb 23, 2017
Short Bar Exam Update: Thank heaven that’s over, but for all of you ladies who might’ve been worried that I was going to pass the bar, get a fancy lawyering job, and abandon this blog for greener pastures, worry no more. Because unless “minimum competency” includes running out of time on the essay portion, messing up the form of your performance test, and being shocked by how many ways they can test post-trial appeals on the multiple choice, I’ll be here a while longer. And now, back to our regularly scheduled programming…
What type of Hyaluronic Acid serum do you use? I’ve been hearing a lot about it but having a hard time finding the right one to pull the trigger on. I was interested in the Pestle and Mortar version but the price is a bit steep.
I’m not familiar with that brand. I’m using the Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Framboos serum right now, and it’s really brightened my skin. I also just bought this Rodial Hyaluronic Mask, which I’m really excited to try. If you’re looking for something affordable, several readers rave about this $8 Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid.
I am attending a black tie gala at the end of March and need a gown. My issue is that I barely hit 5’1” and need a gown for petites that’s under $200 (if possible). I’ve looked around but most of what I’m seeing reminds me of high school prom or mother of the bride. Good luck on the bar exam! You’re going to be a kickass attorney.
Given the time of year (pre-prom), finding a full-length dress that doesn’t look like it’s headed to prom might be a challenge. This magenta chiffon dress from ASOS is pretty. But if I had to choose one, I would probably go with this hot pink Ralph Lauren gown.
Looking for something in misses size? This Calvin Klein gown has a sleek, modern shape and is 50%-off.
Good luck on the bar! I need to trouble you for some shoe advice. My work shoes are real beat up and it’s time for new ones. Can you suggest a pair of basic black pumps for less than $200?
I tried on these Sam Edelman Telsa d’Orsay pumps, and they are a stylish basic with a little flair. I’m also a big fan of the Michael Kors Flex pump if you need comfort. For something basic, but on trend, this Ann Taylor Emeline block-heel pump is definitely on order.
A couple of weeks ago, you posted a lanyard that hold work ID cards, but I can’t find it!! Help, I need it.
