Now that the dress part was picked out I still had my hair and nails to work with. I did not have time to run for a manicure, my chipped polish was not going to cut it. Doing it myself was too big of a mess hence, Sally Hansen Salon Effects, nail polish strips to the rescue. I bought a box of the Misbehaved style (They have so many other awesome styles to pick from) a few weeks ago and never had the opportunity to use them. Well now they were about to come to great use. It was just a matter of peeling, applying and filing off the excess.

With no dry time necessary on the nails, I was able to attack the hair. Should I go with a retro hair style like Katy Perry fashioned to compliment the retro style dress I was wearing, or should I Modernize it with a new trendy look such as loose tousled style that Blake Lively sported. After much contemplation I went for the style contrast, the loose tousled hair with my retro looking dress.
With me feeling my best I was ready to go out for a great night! Sushi and dancing were on the venue. It was a great night, in fact I had fun and felt great.

Well yes you will be a trendsetter! But to make you willing to mix up those prints, I will give you a few tips to look out for to make you look fabulous.
- Combine loose prints with a structured print – think for loose flowers and for structured a stripe.
2. One color scheme should repeat itself in every piece of your outfit (this one is key it ties the outfit together)
3. We're always used to black being our neutral, when it comes to mixing prints you have to think of stripes as your neutral that you can match it with anything
