Fabulous, Functional & Frugal Fashion Tip #11

Take Advantage Of Unexpected Small Delights

“I feel pretty,
Oh, so pretty,
I feel pretty and witty and bright!
And I pity
Any girl who isn’t me tonight.”

Dangling fringed & crystal earrings with the black and silver crystal embellished compact

Don’t you just love the feeling of practical, great finds that also make you feel beautiful? That’s how I felt when my best friend Lori and I were in Walgreens not too long ago.

All thoughts of what I originally went there for were quickly overshadowed when Lori hands me this dazzling black and silver compact adorned with brilliant Swarovski crystals (she knows I love sparkle). Not only is it tactile, but it has 5x magnification. And did I mention it’s black and silver?

If it doesn't make you feel fabulous: don't do it, don't buy it, don't keep it.

Now if you’ve been visiting Bold Blind Beauty for a while you may recall I’ve been in the process of simplifying my life over the past few months. This included curtailing unnecessary spending and when I do spend I have to swap out the new item for something I already have.

Did I need a new compact? Nah, I really didn’t. But, my mom did. So my excursion to Walgreens wasn’t for naught as I snagged a sleek, chic compact and gave my other one to my mom. You might be thinking why wouldn’t I gift this one to my mom but I actually did her a favor. I mean, she’d be so ticked off if someone pilfered it I saved her the agony.

The only other accessory purchase I’ve made are these fabulous dangling sliver and crystal fringe earrings from our new Nordstrom Rack. They would look so nice with my black jumpsuit or even a pair of jeans.

Sometimes it’s the smallest things that make us feel so good.

Happy Hump Day!!

  4. Yes Steph. Sometimes we have to indulge on things we don’t necessarily ‘need’. Good for the soul.

  5. They do look very stylish, Steph, although tot really suitable in my case, of course. (Earrings don’t match a paper bag!) Have a great Christmas and New Year! 🙂
