Spring Flowers & Flowy Dresses

Spring is the most beautiful time of the year in Las Vegas! I love to throw on a simple summer frock and enjoy the perfect spring weather before the heat comes. The yellow bells in my front yard are in full bloom so the combination of spring flowers and flowy dresses I have been buying are just a few of my favorite things right now!Red Summer Dress

Something Old And Something New

Have you ever gone to your closet, stared at your wardrobe and sighed in sadness because you felt like everything in there was old and boring? As women, we are prone to what I call, closet envy. But sometimes all you need is a new piece or a new pair of shoes to inspire something totally new!
I bought this romper so long ago, I can’t even remember where I bought it. But I love it because it’s just like wearing a giant onesie and calling it fashion! Since wearing something so comfortable seems socially unacceptable, I added a beaded Anthropology belt to dress it up. Best part is, the belt is just as comfortable since it is elastic!
Purple Romper Outfit
For my something new, I wore my Sam Edelman Khylee Leather Wedge Mule, in Nude which I absolutely adore. They are so comfortable and even better news, they are on sale for only $107!

To finish the look, I threw on my everyday Louis Vuitton Neverfull Bag and simple silver jewelry to match.

Easy Date Night Look

Every spring, I look forward to the nights spent out with my husband, enjoying the beautiful Vegas weather. When it comes to makeup, the hubby hates it. So I try to keep it as natural as possible. If he doesn’t notice I am wearing any makeup, that means I did a job well done.

Easy Date Night Makeup

I always start with my fresh makeup musts. Then I coordinate an eye to go with my outfit. For this natural apricot eye, I used 3 eyeshadow colors to complete this easy date night look.
Date Night Makeup Look

I started with an eyeshadow duo I received in my April Ipsy Glam Bag; if you don’t already love Ipsy, you are missing out (i’m obsessed)!
I used the lighter color in the Pixi Mesmerizing Mineral Duo (Apricot Glow) all over lids, then added in the darker color loosely in the crease.

Lastly, I pressed a little MAC Pressed Pigment in Angelic in the center of my eyelids to give them a little shimmer.Date Night Look

Christian Louboutin Shoes for Wide Feet

Christian Louboutin Box & Shoes
I have always been in love with the highly coveted red bottomed stilettos worn by fashionistas everywhere, but I have never bought any because of one problem… My perfectly square WIDE feet.
Destiny's Wide Feet
Christian Louboutin does not make his heels in wide and would’t dream of making an $800 shoe “comfortable”. A while back I tried buying a pair of pumps 2 sizes too big just so I could own a pair, but I lost all feeling in my toes and couldn’t walk. Now believe me, I have danced en pointe for a long time and my Christian Louboutin New Very Prive Pumps were a thousand times worse than endless nutcracker rehearsals.
Destiny's Christian Louboutin Box
After visiting the Christian Louboutin store and discussing strategy as to how to get my wide feet into a pair of these pumps, I found the perfect pair.

Here’s a few tips on how to find yours…
Bianca Black Pumps
The saleswomen recommended two different styles of Christian Louboutin Shoes for Wide feet, the Christian Louboutin Bianca Almond-Toe Platform Red Sole Pump (my favorite) and the Christian Louboutin Iriza Half d’Orsay Red Sole Pump.

The secret is: DO NOT get them in patent leather because they do not give as much in the front of the foot where you need it most. Also choose a style that is low cut on the sides so your foot has more room through the metatarsals.
Christian Louboutin Shoes on Box
As for sizing on Christian Louboutin shoes for wide feet, if you buy the right pair you only have to go up a half size. I am a true 7.5 size shoe and when I bought these beautiful Bianca’s I bought a size 38. I really like the Iriza shoes as well, but I didn’t want a pointed toe.
Destiny's Christian Louboutin Shoes
I am so happy to finally have a pair of Christian Louboutin Shoes I can wear for more than an hour and not die! If you have wide feet like mine and are looking to buy a pair of these beauties, I highly recommend buying them in person and making sure you love them before making the investment!
