Launch of MAC's Marilyn Monroe Collection


(Photos by Maria)

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.

  1. That heart tee is so cute! Great idea to layer it over a dress. Looks like a fun event... I don't wear much makeup, but most of the products I do own are MAC... love that brand!

    1. Me too! MAC is amazing, I prefer their lipsticks and blushes over every other brand. Glad you like my idea of layering a t-shirt over the dress. ;)

  2. I too am a fan of throwing a fun t-shirt or sweater on top of a "sexy dress" to make it more casual. What a great event!!

  5. That's such a good idea to wear a tshirt over a fitted dress, I have far too many really nice too-posh dresses and not enough casual outfits, will definitely be trying this soon!
