Lust v. Must: New Years Eve Edition

One of my guilty pleasures is watching Bravo.  I love The Real Housewives of New York City, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Bethenny Ever After?, The Rachel Zoe Show, and Fashion Hunters.  I was excited to see Glee’s Lea Michele and Chris Colfer on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live.

Lea Michele’s outfit gave me inspiration for my own New Years Eve outfit.  Lea Michele wore a Jenny Packham dress from the Fall 2011 Ready to Wear Collection.  She paired it with black Christian Louboutin 150mm Balota Pumps which cost around  $1,195.00.   Not everyone can spend $1,195.00 on just the shoes for an outfit.   Here is a way your can turn your lust outfit into a must.

The dress I chose is Express’ Sequin Dress which was $128.00 but is on sale for $76.80.  I think Lea’s shoes are beautiful but I wouldn’t wear strappy shoes in the winter.  I chose Aldo’s Corelli shoe in black patent.  The shoe is on sale for $45.49.  This entire outfit would cost $122.29 which is $1, 072.71 less than the price of Lea’s shoes alone!

I would wear simple makeup with this dress.  The lust makeup I’d choose would be: Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long Lasting Eyeliner ($29.00), Chanel Inimitable Intense Mascara Multi-Dimensionnel Sophistique ($30.00), Chanel Levres Scintillantes Glossimer ($28.50), Nars Orgasm Blush ($27.00), Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage ($28.00), YSL Touche Eclat ($40.00), and Chanel nail polish in Beige D’Or ($25.00).  The total cost of the lust makeup look is $207.50.

The must makeup I’d wear would be: Mabelline Volum’ Express the Falsies Flared in Very Black mascara ($7.77), Mabelline Eye Studio Master Drama in Midnight Master ($7.99), Covergirl Believable Blush in Rose Silk ($5.69), Almay Clear Complexion Concealer 200 Light/Medium ($6.00), Revlon Under Eye Concealer ($7.97), OPI  nail polish in Dazzled by Gold ($8.50). The total cost of the must makeup is $43.92.

Happy New Years!
