This past weekend, I went to New York City for the wedding of two dear friends, Gerold and Rory. (This was no ordinary wedding -- Rory was in the original cast of The Book of Mormon, and both men have huge families and are extremely popular to boot. The guest list included some of Broadway's elite, and it was definitely an experience like no other!) But I digress. I thought that both my return to NYC and the fabulous wedding I was attending definitely warranted an equally fabulous mani -- so I headed to none other than Paintbox in Soho.

The fabulous Christine Mikesell of 15 Minute Beauty has put together a super fun beauty blog linkup today, all about the products we stockpile and hoard. Now, I'm not going to lie -- my apartment tends to look like a Sephora gone crazy. There are nail polishes, lip balms, candles, soaps and more scattered basically across every free inch of space. But there are definitely products that I keep going back to again and again -- and buy in multiples, just in case there was ever a chance of them being discontinued. This is my list.

Having a super touristy moment on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Hi, Annette!
You know those outfits that you put together that just really stand out to you, even years later? And maybe they were something special and maybe they weren't, but for whatever reason, you just LOVED the fashion moment you created? Well, that's how I feel about the outfit above.

I don't really post that many OOTDs (AKA Outfit of the Days) here on The Beauty of Life. In fact, I've posted exactly 11 before today. (They're all here, in case you're curious.) But I simply had to post this one, because ... well ... I really love everything about the photo and the outfit.
