And to give you a little inspiration, here are a few fall fashion looks that I created from my favorite new dress from Macy’s:


I scrunched up my dress over jeans to create a cute tunic look and paired it with some sassy metallic accessories.

Casual Cool

Belted sweater + t-strap heels=easy!

Dinner Date

A jean jacket dresses this look down, but metallic accessories keep it looking cute.

Cubicle Sleek

Tucked into black pants with patent heels for an office chic ensemble.

Dancing Queen

Textured tights, a metallic clutch and my t-strap patent sandals create a dance floor ready look.

“I love these shadows! They apply smoothly, blend well, feel light, lasts a long time & don’t dry out the lids. Such a pretty finish!” Caroline G, Boston, MA
