Budget, Bold and Ballin Buys

Wet N Wild - Coraline
 MAC - Vegas Volt
 Bobbi Brown - Calypso 

Summer is the perfect season for a beautiful Coral lip.  There are so many shades of coral out there that you are bound to find one that suits your skin tone.  Coral is also a fun alternative to red, being not quite as bold but not as boring as a pale pink lip. It also looks Marvelous with a tan!   Kelly has been on a Coral lip kick for quite awhile and she swears by  these brands.  She literally owns all 3 all of the above colors claiming that they are very similar but also great quality.  Her one recommendation is to add a gloss on top of or a balm underneath the Wet N Wild lip color.  While its long-lasting power makes it great it can be a bit drying.

Every girl needs a great black party or cocktail dress in her life.  What could be more fun, elegant and feminine than a Lace cocktail dress? These dresses will always be wearable year round since they are black, classic and have slight vintage feel.  I love all 3 dresses above but I have to say, if I could spend the Ballin amount guilt free on that Marchesa dress, I would! Might I add that a Coral lip would look Fab with any of these dress options.

A great combination with the above black lace dresses would be a pair of basic black & gold ankle strap heels.  A black ankle strap is definitely a wardrobe staple these days. All 3 pairs have their own pop of gold detailing without being too flashy.  While the Givenchy pair is gorgeous I would step right into any of these beauties. 

Which 3 options would you put together?


  1. Love the black & gold pretty!

  2. I loved the Steve Madden heels :)

  8. Ooh, fun post! I love seeing how cheaper version of things tend to look almost identical to the expensive designer ones! I actually like the cheaper black lace dress from Milly the most out of all three. I love the peplum! And those heels are amazing. I want all of them : )
