I hope everybody is having a prosperous year so far. I wanted to welcome 2011 looking "Divalicious" so I wanted sparkle and shine in my outfit. So when I saw these sequined shorts by Posh-Pants, I knew that they would be perfect! I had a small problem at first with Posh-Pants. I ordered my shorts  and all went well with the order. Then about a week later, I see that I have yet to receive a shipping confirmation or tracking number for my order. I sent a couple of emails and have received no reply. I then sent a semi-threatening one and I finally got a response. They shipped my shorts right away and even refunded my shipping costs to make up for the inconvenience which was very nice of them. Yay for me!

this is how I get when "Who's That Chick" by Rihanna comes on LOL. I put this pic up only because you can see the true color of the shorts.
Since the shorts were going to be the focal point of the outfit, I didn't want a top that competed with them. It was hard looking for a top because everything was either too casual or too out there. In thje end I found it in an unexpected place: Strawberry's. The top is nice and loose and cropped with lace detailing in the arm and back. Since the shorts were high waisted, i didn't reveal a lot of midriff. only when I raised my arms did you see some skin. Well I ended up raising my arms a lot that night lol since I get to get hyper and do crazy dancing after a few drinks. I completed the outfit with my BCBG patent nude pumps, some chandelier looking earrings from F21 and my Swarovski bracelet. I ended up losing my bracelet that night, I'm still soo bummed about that because I loved it so much. It was a simple and delicate piece.

I did a navy smokey eye w/ a matte, pink lip makeup-wise. I wanted to do a bold lip since I had neutral colors. I chose pink because I felt like I would look too patriotic if I did red. And I also love bright pink lips. And for hair, I did big, sexy, loose curls and flipped up my bangs.
