On Nnenna’s Nails #6: La Fille

Pale Pink Nails with Pink Glitter 1

Pink* Zoya Madison, Pink Glitter* Milani Disco Lights

Last week, I got tired of wearing dark, vampy colors, so of course I went for the opposite end of the spectrum!  I couldn’t wait to try out this lovely pale pink color that I snagged in Zoya’s 2012 promotion (2 free nail polishes, you only paid shipping).  Then, since I am all about the accent nail, I used the pink glitter nail polish that my roommate bought for me on my ring finger.  The result was a glam and girly manicure- sometimes it’s just fun to be a girly girl, no? =)

Side note: You all know how much I like letter-writing and stationery, right?  Well I’ve been toying with the idea of starting a little bloggers pen pal group; definitely something with low commitment, like one letter a month.  What do we think- good idea or bad idea?  Would love your feedback! :)

You Might Say I’m a Girly Girl

Girly Girl Dress Swapped from Orchid Grey 1

Let’s keep the swap talk going, shall we? :)  I thought it would be appropriate to follow up my last post with an outfit post showing off an item that I swapped!  During the ModSwap event last September, I snagged this pretty dress from Julie of Orchid Grey.  I remember seeing the dress on the rack and thinking, “Oh my gosh, I love this dress!  I hope this fits!  Please fit, please fit!”  I snatched up the dress immediately and raced into the bathroom to try it on, and lo and behold- it fit!

I think I feel best in a dress like this with a girly silhouette.  With the lovely color combination of gray, pink, and purple and the pleated details on this dress, I just couldn’t help but feel pretty! :)

Since I’m apparently on a girly kick, check back later in the week for a very girly manicure! :)

Tell me: What’s your go-to silhouette or outfit when you want to feel your best?

Get Your Swap On with Swap.com!

If you saw my twitter feed a few days ago, you’ll notice that I posted a bunch of links to a website called Swap.com.  Basically, it’s a site to facilitate online (or local!) swapping: you can list items that you have under various categories (such as Women’s Fashion or Electronics) and you can also add items that you want to your Wants list.  It’s really very easy to use and it’s a great way to give clothes you don’t wear anymore a new life!

Since one of my new year’s resolutions was to purge my closet and change the way I shop (side note: I recently stumbled across this inspiring post about personal style that has some great tips about this topic that I want to follow), I’ve been listing a lot of the stuff that has just been collecting dust in my closet.  I’d rather they go to a new home and to someone who will show them a little more love :)

Here’s a couple of things that I listed:

And here’s a couple of things that I acquired:
