Pantone Colors of the Year with F.A.C.E. Makeup Artistry by Emily Margaret

Last month, my friend Erin and I collaborated on a shoot for the 2016 Pantone colors of the year, Rose Quartz and Serenity. Erin, who owns F.A.C.E. Makeup Artistry in downtown Paducah, was preparing to teach a class using the two colors so we did a little photo shoot for some promotional images. I'm usually not one for wearing bright makeup and I wasn't sure how the colors would look in everyday life. Let's be honest- some things just look better on instagram, but I was happily surprised to see how wearable these colors were when I saw how they looked on Erin.

New dresses and secrets by Emily Margaret

While it's no secret I love reading fashion & style blogs, I could never be a fashion blogger. As I've said before, I feel really awkward taking photos of myself (and I'm currently doing a self-portrait project so anyways..). But. This dress.

I'll let you in on a secret- I've worn it three times already in the past week.  Yep, I like it that much.

My friend Heather just opened her online clothing store, The Secret Stash Boutique, which is where I got this dress. It was so different and flow-y and Anthropologie-esque that I had to buy it. And if you want to get your own or see the other cute things Heather has for sale you should go check out The Secret Stash Boutique website or go like The Secret Stash on facebook.


**Please note this is not a sponsored post. I purchased the dress myself and offered to share about it on my blog because I love it so much. :) **
