Party in Pink

If you couldn’t tell, gold and black accessories have been my latest craze. And of course, this pinkish coral color is always a girl’s best friend! I would totally wear this outfit for a fun night out with my girlfriends, or for a date. As you can see I paired this very trendy coral lace dress with gold and black accessories,  a pink lip (that’ll stay very moisturized thanks to the Revlon Lip Butter!) and a Tarte  blush that’ll last all night.
