Wedding Guest Dresses under $50

One of my friend's got married last weekend. She is the first one of us to tie the knot. Wedding season is just starting. I thought it would be great to look at guest dresses under $50. These dresses are for a more casual ceremony and reception. The dresses are budget friendly and they can be worn again.
This Love, Nickie Lew dress has great colors. It's only $46. It could be worn in the fall with a brown leather jacket. 
This Everly Trapeze dress would work for a very casual or beach wedding. It's $46. I'd pair it with floral jewelry. It would also look good at the beach with a straw hat.
This Modcloth dress is very romantic. I love the neckline and the skirt looks great for dancing. It's $29.99 normally $99.99. It would look great on a date with a pair of sparkly shoes.
This LC Lauren Conrad dress is very on trend with the cold shoulder sleeves. It's $48. It would look cute with a pair of pink wedges. 
This London Times dress has an interesting keyhole.It's $39.99 This could be worn to work with a cardigan.

Pink and Teal

I wore this to hang out with my mom. We went to the mall she got us some jewelry. I stopped in the Sephora and found the Too Faced Melted Matte and got her some eyeliner. I like the Melted Matte they are sold out online but my store had a few colors. I'm not wearing it in this post but I'll let you know when I am. I really like the color of this maxi skirt, I think it would look nice with a blush pink too.

Crochet

I wore this dress to get some tacos. This dress is still one of my favorite thrift finds. It's a DVF dress I got it for $15 and it still had the tags on.

During the Sephora sale I got the Gwen Stefani lipstick in Firebird. It looks pretty dark in the tube but it isn't too dark once applied and it goes on smoothly.

Owl

I wore this to a networking group. It was such a chilly morning so I added tights to my outfit. This orange skirt is becoming one of my favorite pieces. It goes with everything and the length is great.

This bracelet is my go-to bracelet.. I feel like they go with everything.

Dressing Daenerys Targaryen

We are ending our Game of Thrones dresses series with Daenerys. She's my pick for the Iron Throne. She's gone through a dramatic costuming transition. She started off very soft,then transition into tougher Dothraki style garments, then a blue dress that got more dragon like and now she tends to favor white dresses.
In Mereen, she likes white dresses with neck details or dragon necklaces. This Brunello Cucinelli dress fits in that theme. It's soft and motherly.
Daenerys has been wearing a ton of cape dresses. This Halston Heritage dress is fantastic.
Sometimes when she's alone in Mereen, she goes a little sexier with cutouts. This Cushnie et Ochs dress would be perfect for those times .
This Zac Posen dress reminds me of the blue dress she wore when she was traveling .
This Monique Lhuiller dress is like the more embroidered version.

Prep

I wore this to a networking lunch. I feel like pants still aren't totally my thing but this is such a happy pair.
I really like these red wedges. I've had them for a while and I hope they can make it through this summer. They are a great summer shoe.

Slightly Sporty

I wore this on opening day. I didn't go but my mom did. I did a little bit of running around. Chik-fil-A was giving out sandwhiches for wearing O's stuff. So I added my baseball cap and my mom's O's purse.

My mom saw this purse on tv. Someone in the audience of an Oriole's game was wearing a larger bag in this print. I got her this bag for Christmas two years ago. Dooney and Bourke are doing MLB bags again. The prints are smaller and more subtle. You can see them here.

Dressing Margaery Tyrell

We've already dressed up Sansa and Cersei. I'm  going to look at Margaery Tyrell now. Her style is very feminine and youthful. It's a contrast to Cersei's heavier look.
I love this Alfred Sung dress. It is very feminine. Margaery stick to simple shapes.
This Mac Duggal dress is very bold for Margaery but I like the idea of putting her in a rose dress since her house sigil is a rose.
This ML Monique L'huiller dress is a different shape than she normally goes for. It's very traditionally princess but, it has the softness she normally embraces.
The next two dresses are Theia if Game of Thrones took place now I think Margaery would love Theia. This dress has a low neckline and exposed back that she likes.
After marrying Tommen, Margaery embraced Baratheon colors. This embroidered Theia dress is the perfect blend of both of their houses.

3 Months with Clarisonic

Since the Sephora VIB sale starts tomorrow I thought it would be a great time to talk about my Clarisonic experience. I'm lucky that my acne has never been really really horrible but to me it was bad enough and I felt like I had tried everything and it would just be something I'd have to deal with.
Some days I don't wear makeup to the store. Normally around holidays when I'm more focused on other things. In the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas, one person a week would comment on how bad my skin was and it was so hurtful. I knew I had bad skin;there's no need to point it out. After about the eighth time hearing this I broke down at my desk. I had heard about skin brushes and thought I'd try them out. My mom got me the Olay Pro-x brush just to make sure I liked using a skin brush. I tried it for a few weeks and I knew I wanted something more serious. 
In the first week of January I went to Sephora and got the Clarisonic MIA 2. I picked the Mia 2 because  I liked the timer. In the beginning I used it with my Clearisil Acne Wash. Once my acne really started to clear up I started using Philosphy's Purity Made Simple. It's a very gentle cleanser. I use the sensitive brush head.
This is after 3 weeks. My skin really started to clear up. This was a stressful week and my skin didn't show it. I also noticed that my skin has gotten was less oily.
This is where my skin is now. I've been using it about 3 months. I'm still not perfect at my skincare routine. Sometimes I skip using it when I get home really late. I love my Clarisonic. It has completely transformed my skin. I wasn't wearing makeup the other day and I was told my skin was glowing! I never thought any one would say that to me.  I'm really happy with it after 3 months. If you are on the fence I think you should take the plunge especially if there is a sale. I still break out but my skin actually seems good now. 
Let me know if you have anymore questions about Clarisonic and I'll get back to you and I'll keep you guys updated with my skin's progress.

I'd like to get the Too Faced Melted Matte Lipstick during the sale. I also like the regular Melted's I have peony.

Stripes

I wore this to get some Indian food. It's kind of a shapeless dress but I think it's short enough that pairing it with high heels makes it fun.

The dress was my mom's but she didn't like it on her..
