Fashion bloggers: Jenn Im, Anna Lee, and Claire Marshall are all rocking the sherpa-lined leather jacket trend. And it’s time we step up to the plate. Leather jackets seriously go with everything and sherpa-lined ones just make it perfect for chilly winter days!
My faux leather jacket from Dynamite has quickly become my favorite piece. This faux leather jacket has a soft polyester lining and thick polyurethane shell. In this outfit, I styled it with a classic t-shirt and distressed jeans combo. And of course, I had to finish my outfit with a pair of Dr. Martens!
Pants: Forever 21 and DIY
Shoes: Dr. Martens Cherry Red
Lipstick: Rimmel London Kate 107

I went to my first fashion show this past Saturday and I fell in love with everything from the show to the music. Everything was perfect except the part where I had to pay $9 for parking because I did not receive a parking voucher from the people at the check-in desk. Nine dollars is a lot for a college student. That is a meal! Ok, I’m done. I could rant on and on, but I’m going to spare you guys the agony.
Any way, I got to the show super early like right when the doors opened at 7:00PM because I have never driven to Haxall Point before and wanted to give myself some extra time just in case I got lost. Because a genius like me can get lost with a GPS. Yeah, I know I got skills. Luckily,
I didn’t get lost and arrived at the parking deck half past six and just admired the sunset from my car. The sunset was absolutely, breathtakingly beautiful. The orange and pink hues swirled in harmony and contrasted the tall angular buildings and reflected off the rippling waves of the James.
At 6:45PM, I decided to get out of the car and make my way towards the elevator. I quickly found out that I had no idea where the elevator was. So, after walking three flights of stairs in platform wedges and through the dark, rather empty parking deck, I found an elevator. I pushed the little button and it began to glow red around the edges. I nervously waited for the familiar ding to signal the elevator had arrived on my floor and got in to the gold mirrored elevator. I pushed the floor to the Lobby and waited for the elevator to arrive on my floor. Why I didn’t film this? I have no idea. Maybe, because I suck at vlogging? Hopefully, I’ll get better at it.
Alright, so here was what I wore. I chose this outfit via text with my bestie. Because it being my first fashion show, I had no idea what I was going to wear and had the “oh my god, I have nothing to wear moment.” I took a few deep breaths and opened the doors to my horribly disorganized closet and found some pieces that I am currently obsessed with! I’m pretty sure you don’t want to hear about the 2 hour process, so I’ll skip to what I actually wore Saturday night.

Stay tuned for the next post in this series: The Fashion show!
On Saturday night, I went to RVA Fall Fashion weekend designer showcase at Haxall Point. This is the first post in my RVA Fall Fashion series, so stayed tuned for this week’s posts! I had to work Saturday morning, so I didn’t have too much time to get ready. I had three hours to eat lunch, shower, put on makeup, and get dressed. I don’t like feeling rushed. But I think I pulled it off pretty well. It only took about half an hour for me to put on a full face of makeup.
I think I did a pretty good job. For more casual days, I usually take about ten minutes on my makeup. But I wanted to create a light smoky eye, fill in my brows (which I don’t usually do because of sheer laziness), and give myself a flawless complexion (which I usually don’t do because it is terrible for your face to be covered by a mask of foundation).
I don’t really like applying too much color around my eyes. I always go for neutrals and a bold lip. I love bold lips! There is just something magical about them! Right now, I am obsessed with this purplish pink color from Revlon Just Bitten. It is the lip stain in Crave.
I think I have found my new favorite mascara. Do you have those times where you didn’t know how bad your mascara was until you discovered the most perfect mascara ever! I finally started using my sample size Makeup Forever HD Smoky Extravaganza mascara from My Sephora birthday gift. And I fell in love. Obviously, I will be reviewing this later.
The Products I used:
Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation
ELF eyebrow kit
Revlon Just Bitten (Crave)
Too Faced Peach Blush
Physician’s Formula Bronzer
Anyway, this makeup look is one of my favorites. And this look stayed put all night! I will be uploading a YouTube Video of the Fashion show really soon! If you want a tutorial of this makeup look, comment down below and I’ll do the best I can to make a tutorial. Thanks for reading!
And the next post will be all about what I wore!
