Neiman Marcus shopping night

I received a gift card and decided to finally get the Tory Burch Revas I’ve been coveting for almost a year. They had so many colors, which made it hard to decide. It was between the black with gold logo and the gold snakeskin print. I went with black and I absolutely love them. They’re so comfortable and I see them going with everything. If it weren’t for the rain, I’d be wearing them out tonight (I’m going to a jewelry party at a friend’s house).





I also got the Christian Dior 5 palette shadow in #508. It didn’t show up well in the pic, but 2 of the shades have a lot of shimmer and I think these shades will go nice with my coloring for fall and winter. I’m excited to use it.



The funny part of this shopping trip was that my mom and I were just going there to get what I needed and get out. It turns out they were having a shopping event last night and it was really fancy. They served butlered hors d'oeuvres with champagne/wine, had a ton of staff on hand and were showing special collections. I tried on a strand of David Yurman pearls that was over $4,000! It was fun to play dress up and browse around. The problem was that I had dressed for skating in typical gym clothes and looked like a bum compared to some of the shoppers. It was a little awkward, but still fun.
