Naomi’s Prom Style 2016 Edition

I will admit I had very little involvement preparing Naomi for her senior prom. I was there when she picked out her prom shoes from Macy’s. I like the Betsy Johnson shoes for myself. 😉

Prom dress shopping came down to the wire for Naomi. She was extremely busy with the school musical. She found her dress from a specialty store called The Winner located in Sharon Pennsylvania (about an hour away from Pittsburgh).

The only thing I did with makeup was give her a purple smoky eye. Naomi did the rest of her face.

Homecoming Style 2015

Homecoming for my youngest daughter Naomi was held Saturday, November 7, 2015. She is a high school senior now and it was amazing to see her style evolve for homecoming. I have watched her grow into a polished young lady. Naomi also used homecoming as a way to practice for her Senior Prom.

Naomi purchased her homecoming dress earlier this year from Goodwill. She didn’t believe in spending a lot of money on homecoming. The shoes and purse are her sister’s The necklace was given to her.

Naomi styled her own hair. She make clip-ins for extra fullness. Naomi has also gotten quite good at doing her makeup. The only thing I did was her eyeshadow.

I had the pleasure of receiving a pair. The pair I received are the “50 Shades” leggings. They’re made of spandex but don’t have a spandex feel. They feel like cotton and are very soft. They are a little pricier than if you were to buy a pair of leggings from a clothing store. They have a huge variety and you get what you pay for which are quality leggins. If you’d like to order some contact Amelia Plunkett in Facebook or visit her website at http://www.myfunleggings.com

Scoats: Coats for your Stethoscope

Breast Cancer ScoatScoats or stethoscope coats if you will are a fashion accessory to the scrubs that serves two purposes. Not only are they fashionable but they protect your investment by keeping the oils from your neck away from the scope, as well as to keep the tubing from cracking. It also protects it from sunlight if kept in the car as so many people do. It keeps it from drying out. They can also be used as an ice breaker to younger patients. They are machine washable. Different fabrics are used but mostly cotton blends. They are custom made so there are multiple colors and designs to choose from. If you don’t see what you’re looking for just ask and they’ll do their best to provide it for you.

Rae’s Birthday Style

My oldest daughter Rae recently turned twenty-one years old. YAYYYY!!!!! Writing that sentence was the easy part. The hard part was helping her pick out a birthday outfit. Mid October can be a little tricky in Pittsburgh. Fall weather has started to make an appearance. There can still be some mild days too. The weather was definitely going to dictate the outfit Rae was going to wear. She decided to see what was already in her closet.

Rae Birthday Outfit

Rae bought this dress a couple of years ago from Charlotte Russe. She bought the shoes from Journeys back in 2011. She borrow the purse I bought from Charming Charlie.
