gold rush.


F21 open knit cardigan | Asos textured lampshade skirt | F21 rhinestone toggle bracelet | (c/o) Pinky Paradise Dolly Wink faux lashes | Steve Madden grettta suede platforms

With the gradual departure of summer, the season of brights hues seems to be disappearing with each golden glimmer in a riverbed current. As I dash around attempting to wear all my bright items as soon as possible before entering the caverns of rich hues and jewel tones, I found this electric blue gem of a skirt that I had purchased early this year. You may notice by all the creases in the fabric what kind of excavating I had to undergo to recover this skirt. I am not big on ironing either. So please forgive me for the unintentional origami workmanship. And while mining for some rare stones, and by that I mean practical shoes, I ended up discovering these suede beauties. Darn that 30% discount. The pair may not have been nuggets of gold, but when I received them and put them on, guess what I said? Oh yeah. Eureka!

P.S. I'm not big on ironing, but I'm also not big on high maintenance makeup routines either. But when I received these Dolly Wink lashes from Pinky Paradise, I just had to get dolled up in them. Use the code "thefancyteacup" and you will get a mystery gift when your purchase lashes (up to 3 purchases)! The Dolly Wink lashes are so fun. Perfect for getting some kicks on at the local saloon after panning for some gold.

I'm not much for ironing either - but I'm glad you got this skirt out. I know how you feel about wanting to get as much color worn as soon as possible, before the glorious summer days turn cold again.
