Outfit Details: Floral Heart Crop Top (H&M), Black Bodycon Dress (BEBE) Black Suede Pumps (Aldo), Handbag (Marc Jacobs), Accessories (various)
Believe it or not, I'm wearing a very nice, fitted black dress under this crop top. The dress is actually a little too sexy to be worn during daytime, especially to work, so I paired it with this simple, casual floral t-shirt. I decided against a necklace, and stuck to the big studded feather earrings and bangles.
I wore this outfit to the secret viewing of MAC Cosmetics' Marilyn Monroe collection that I got an invitation to. I took two of my close girlfriends with me, and let me tell you, this event was definitely not a secret. We went to the Square One location and it was PACKED. We arrived early for our 7:30 p.m. viewing, and the line-up for people who already RSVP'd (like us) was already pretty big. Nevertheless we were able to get in right on time and look at the collection, do a few swatches (photographed below), and enjoy some appys.
The Marilyn Monroe collection is displayed right near the entrance of the store. The colours are definitely fall-ready!
One of my friend's modeled her hand for me as she painted each of her finger nails a different colour out of the four nail lacquers in the limited edition Marilyn Monroe collection.
...while my other friend did lovely swatches of the five lipsticks on her wrist. I want them all!

One of the appetizers they served were these chicken salad sandwiches.
Here we all are with the Marilyn Monroe of Square One's MAC store. Overall I had a great time with my girlfriends (thank you for coming with me!) and really like the collection as well.
