Valentine's Day: Part Two

Cupcakes and macarons weren't the only thing this weekend had in store for me. For Christmas my parents got us tickets to see Once on the 15th, so in lieu of going out and celebrating on the 14th, we had a quiet dinner in and decided to make the trip into the city our Big Valentine's Day Date.

Now the show was a matinee, which in the theatre world means a less formal dress code, but we don't get excuses to get all dressed up too often, so we decided to go all out... or at least as fancy as our student budget wardrobes can get.

My dress is Forever 21 + and is not currently available. My cardigan is from Bootlegger. Emily's dress is from Garage and her jacket is from Bluenotes.

I decided to go for one of my usual looks— dark lip, neutral eye, but I decided to spice it up a little with a bit of extra sparkle. I mean you can't wear a dress that screams "flower fairy" (or as more than one of my friends said, A Midsummer Night's Dream) this loudly without a little glitter, right? So both my eyeshadows and both my cheek products have glitter in them.
