OOTD: My Neighbour Watched Me Do This

Thrifted crochet crop sweater (the label reads: "joyful adventures on green grassy plain")
XXI bell bottom chords
XXI black platforms

Aldo Accessories brown studded satchel
House of Harlow inspired oversized cat eye sunglasses
deLux black felt hat    
XXI black platforms

Maybelline Vivids lipstick in Electric Orange
Benefit High Brow Glow eyebrow highlighter
MAC Woodwinked velux pearl eyeshadow
MAC Margin frost blush 

I love this title, doesn't it have such a nice, comforting ring to it? I would have asked him to join in the photos but the bathrobe and slippers look is so last fall. 
But yes, here is my OOTD! I have this weird thing for items with other people's names on them (I have a keychain with the name Christine on it, among others) and as I glanced to my gold chain necklace with the name "Sandra" on it in gold funky letters, I was instantly inspired to create this outfit. All I need is long, wavy hair and my transformation to 70's chic is complete! 
I love my XXI bell bottoms but never get to wear them enough! When I found the crocheted sweater in a thrift store, I knew I had found their soul mate.
My black platform XXI (I see a theme) heels are honestly the most comfortable platforms I've purchased. They are so versatile and have really outlasted their time considering I only bought them for around $20!

For makeup I wanted to go for a really natural glowy look with a bold lip. I'm wearing Maybelline's New Vivids Electric Orange lipstick. I bought this lipstick a couple weeks ago and really love the color and subtle shine. For my eyes I'm wearing MAC'S Woodwinked eyeshadow. I don't have too many of MAC's products (other than their lipsticks), but I find out of the few I have I literally swear by them. This eyeshadow is one of those. It's a really pretty warm golden color that just makes your eyes pop. I wore it for my high school graduation (oh so long ago...I can barely remember...oh to be young again!) and haven't taken it off since. Wow that sounds gross but you know what I mean. Another MAC product I can't live without is their Margin frost blush. Out of all the blushes I own, it's my absolute favorite. It really highlights the cheekbones so much that when I wear it I just skip my contour.
Well this post turned into a review, now didn't it? I JUST HAVE A LOT TO SAY OK?? I see myself making a "Products I Can't Live Without Post" in the future somewhere, but for now, are there any products you can't live without? *waits patiently for the end of the world before someone comments on this blog*
