Booties are cute but most of them are not flexible enough to be worn with any outfit. I have been looking for a pair of booties to wear not only this season but anytime of the year. While most booties look very good with jeans and sporty attire, I wanted a pair that will go well with jeans, skirts, and dresses. It took me a little while until I went to BAKERS and found what I wanted.

This Emily bootie is perfect for skinnies, skirts, and even dresses. The cut-out design and bronze strap décor make it look dressy and although it is made of synthetic leather, the matte finish gives it an authentic look. Meanwhile, the elevating platform and heels give me that boost of confidence I need. Most importantly, the color combination will allow me to wear it with different outfits – from  jeans to LBDs. I am planning to wear it with a black dress, along with a brown cropped top and layered tights. Metallic colors are predicted to be a hit next spring. The bronze accent of this bootie will definitely extend the list of outfits with which it can be worn.

I did not buy many items today. I guess I was overwhelmed by the crowd that I was happy to just walk around the mall watching people with their shopping bags.  Still, I could not help splurging a little on colors and scents. I found a great deal from Estée Lauder (Macy’s)- with any purchase of Estée Lauder fragrance, I could get this fabulous color collection for only $55 which is said to be a $340 value.  What I liked about the set is that it had everything I wanted and a little more!

  • Deluxe Face Compact (Estée Lauder Signature Silky Powder Blush in Rosewood and Nude Rose, and Bronze Goddess Soft Matte Bronzer)
  • 4 Pure Color Long Lasting Lipsticks (full-size, in Candy, Rose Tea, Fig and Tiger Eye)
  • 3 Artist’s Eye Pencils (great for smoky eyes, in SoftSmudge Black, SoftSmudge Brown and Slate Writer)
  • Projectionist High Definition Volume Mascara (10-day supply, in Black)
  • Lash Primer Plus (10-day supply)
  • Gentle Eye Makeup Remover (full-size 3.4 oz.)
  • 4 Deluxe Makeup Brushes (Powder, Blush, Lip and Eye)
  • Look Book with tips on creating 4 fabulous looks
  • Golden Stand-Up Mirror
  • Cosmetic Traveler Case
  • Companion Makeup Case

As for the fragrance, I could not just settle for one. I chose the Estée Lauder Pen Pals Gift Set – portable 0.2 oz Eau de Parfum Rollerball Pens in three lush fragrances – Beautiful, Sensuous, and Pleasures. It is’s a great way to enjoy different Estée Lauder scents without spending too much.

Three luxurious scents and a fabulous color collection to indulge. I couldn’t ask for more. (Well, figuratively speaking.)
