Ulta Chic | 1940s-ish Inspired [Makeup Wise]

Hello lovelies! I'm back yet again with another work outfit, I was going to do my off-day outfit yesterday, but I forgot to take pictures until it was dark outside. Silly me. Oh well, perhaps this Saturday I'll get some non-work outfit pictures taken, especially since I'm thinking about attending a friend's bonfire that evening with s'mores and everything.

What I'm Wearing
Black Wool Dress -- J.Crew via Simply Chic [$10 or $15]
White Blouse -- Secondhand via Friend [Free]
Long Necklace -- Simply Chic [$2.50]
Gold Post Earrings -- Click Six [$1.99]
Black Flats -- Steve Madden via DSW [Free w/GC]
Nail Polish -- Butter London in Blowing Rasberries [received in a swap]
Lipstick -- Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm in Standout
Lip Stain -- L'Oreal Paris Colour Caresse Wet Shine Stain in Endless Red [$7.99]

After seeing Agent Carter pop-up in the recent episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, I've been super excited for her show to air in January, and have been in the mood for a bit of 1940s inspired hair and makeup -- plus my nails were already red. To complete my 40's inspired makeup look, I went with a simple brown toned wash of color on my eyes [Urban Decay], with some brown eyeliner [Pacifica Beauty], and black mascara [Benefit]. For my face makeup I kept it fresh & clean with just foundation [Bourjois], concealer for my under eyes [NYX Cosmetics], and blush [Jouer]. Of course, for my red lip I used a red lip liner [Essence Cosmetics], balm matte stain [Revlon], and a lip stain [L'Oreal Paris] to make sure that my color didn't go anywhere whilst at work.  

Now, you may be wondering why I have a picture of me holding a football in the last picture. brother said that I should included it, to show off my sporty side, since I enjoy football [mostly just college], baseball, and hockey mostly.

Well, I better sign-off as me and Hanne-col are watch Mulan [1998] for the first time this evening, and there are some hilarious moments in this film.



  1. Beautiful, my dear. So sweetie and classy!

    In Christ,

  2. Fun outfit! :D I like the layered look of the dress and shirt, as well as your makeup. :)

  3. Dear Ashley,
    I love your blog! As a Christian girl myself, I only recently became concerned with modesty. Your blog has inspired me and given me ideas. I feel truly blessed to have come across this lovely internet space of yours. May God bless you and continue to grow your ministry, one post at a time.


  4. That dress is so pretty! My sister has one just like it! I love that make-up look!

  5. you are so pale and pretty:)~Lee

  6. Mulan?!? that is the best movie ever!! is it the Disney one? And I love this whole outfit! I have every single makeup piece you said, so I might copy this look! I have a short black dress, but it is a little too short so I will have to sew ribbon on the bottom to make it fit my standards. :) Thanks for the modest encouragement! -Abi

  7. You look beautiful, Ashley!
    And I love Mulan, it's my favorite Disney cartoon :D
