linebacker.

earlier this fall season i picked up a few sweaters when big shoulders, defined with shoulder pads, made a short-lived comeback. i have since snipped the shoulder pads out of them for a softer, less pronounced pouf.
now i don't feel like a football player anymore.

i must say i'm pleasantly surprised with essie nailpolish.
it lasts a long time without chipping.
i'm usually forced to change my polish because it's chipping...but now that i actually want to change it and try all the new colors, i can't. the polish still looks decent, and i feel like it would be wasteful to remove good polish!

  5. you look precious in the sweater. i bought a couple of tops like that + i removed some elastic to reduce the poof-age. and essie is great, it's the only kind that lasts longer than 2 days with me!

  8. How cool those shoes look under the outfit. Nice job taking a 'club' like show and making it work for day time. Love the puff shoulders and the thin metal gold belt.

  9. Love the details of the golden belt how the color blends and looks great on your outfit.

    Thanks for giving tips regarding Essie nail polish. I'm always using Orly, such a brand loyal. Gonna try others this time and will take Essie as an alternative.

  23. Big shoulders scare me, but these aren't big enough to be frightening.
    These are more like shoulder wings.
    (What?)
    I like it.
    And your shoes made me orgasm a little bit.

  24. that sweater definitely looks feminine and non-linebackerish. and i'll have to try that polish. i usually give up on my nails because they chip so easily, but i miss having a little color. thanks for sharing!

  25. I can't imagine that sweater with pads - it looks perfect without them. Just enough poof to be feminine not overwhelming. good job on pulling those suckers out. Great look.
    I have never tried Essie nail polish, I generally stick with OPI brand stuff as that is the only brand I've had luck with. glad I read your post 'cause I think I'll try it now. i like the one different colored nail you have going on here :)
