Champagne, fine chocolates, women “dressed to the nine”, make-up artists, luxury cosmetics and Marilyn performing “Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend”, “I Want to be Love By You” and more. This my friends was the fabulous scene this past Thursday at the #SaksBombshell event at Saks Tulsa, in celebration of MAC’s recently released exclusive limited edition Marilyn Monroe Collection . The event was hosted by local blogger and fashion writer Nicci Atchley. The best part? In our pursuit to try and achieve the beauty of the ultimate bombshell beauty, 10% of all proceeds from our purchases of these exquisite cosmetics went to benefit the Child Abuse Network of Tulsa. So sipping on champagne, munching on fine chocolates and getting our make-up done by make-up artists truly went to support one of the most precious of causes, protecting our children. It doesn’t get any better than that! 🙂
“Bedroom eyes“, ruby red lips and pristine porcelain-like skin where name of the game. Channeling Marilyn’s legendary and trademark look, the collection consists of deep black eyeliners for that “bedroom eyes” look, highly pigmented eye shadows is gorgeous colors, rosy pink blushes and lipsticks in shades like “Charmed I’m Sure to Shop”, “Love Goddess to Shop” and “Deeply Adored to Shop” . The great thing about this collection – these colors work for any season! A very important note though my lovelies, when MAC says limited edition, they mean it! The collection is already sold out completely here in my city of Tulsa and many items are starting to or are already sold out online, so HURRY, HURRY!
I’m always so excited to see what exclusive collections MAC comes up with, and this collection mydefinitely didn’t disappoint! Now, I just have to hurry and scoop up a few more pieces from this collection before it’s completely sold out!
SPECIAL THANKS to Nicci Atchley and Amanda Viles for putting on such a wonderful event, thank you to MAC make-up artist AJ for making me feel beautiful and to Kate Davis of C.A.N. !

Saturday I had a fabulous afternoon at Saks Fifth Avenue Tulsa! The one and only Lindsay Rogers, a.k.a. @bellebellebeau , held a beauty brunch event. It was great time! We sipped on mimosas while listening to Lindsay teach us about the latest and great in fall beauty and make-up trends. Accompanying Lindsay was Amanda Viles, a.k.a. @AChic , Marketing Director for Saks Tulsa. Amanda discussed with attendees how to accompany fall’s beauty trends with the season’s current fashion trends.
It truly was a great afternoon of beauty and fashion. What more could a girl I ask for?
So, since I knew I was going to a place like Saks, of course an important question is what to wear?! 😉 Since we’re still basically in a transition period between seasons, I’m currently discovering and experimenting on ways to bring some of my summer pieces into fall.
So, one of my favorite summer staples, my boyfriend jeans, were my first challenge. One idea I had already was pairing my boyfriend jeans this fall with a slouchy sweater or jacket and heels; I decided to keep with that same idea. I paired my jeans with my FAVORITE pair of Nine West leopard print heels (last seen here and here), a simple black sleeveless blouse and long and hot red blazer (last seen here). To polish it off I added a great statement necklace and bracelet and a funky studded and spiked clutch.
I find it lots of fun jazzing up simple pieces and wardrobe staples with statement accessories! So many options.
What do you think of the final result? How are you bringing some of your favorite summer pieces into fall?
