It’s no secret that I love to shop; and shopping for a cause always grabs my attention. Such was the case a while ago when a friend of mine invited me to shop at an event where a portion of the sales went to the MS Society. I had never set foot in the Zimmerman store. I always picture their flowy dresses and shirts on more ethereal types. But I was in for a pleasant surprise when I came upon a plethora of items that did suit me. I had to whittle my purchases down and ended up with this cute dress that I can also layer with a pretty white blouse when the temperatures start to cool. Snakeskin is very on trend at the moment. It seems to be everywhere. You will recall that I took a t-shirt dress in this print on my recent trip to Europe. I cannot seem to get away from these low block heel sling backs by Marni. I have worn them over and over agin all season long. I find a low block heel and slingback are the perfect combo for keeping my feet comfy.

I was having a day with my hair, so I slicked it back into a pony and added a pretty scarf in these subtle colors that seemed to enhance the print of the dress, rather than fight with it.

I am so happy to have purchased this dress and happier still, that the proceeds went to such a worthy cause. Like I always say, shopping and philanthropy are a very suitable match!

Clean natural makeup starts with a good skin care regimen. I am currently loving    Natura Bissé’s cleanser    and    moisturizer.    Their    “The Cure” eye cream    is fabulous. My    concealer    and    tinted moisturizer    are by Clé de Peau.

Short, Sweet and To The Point

Who doesn’t love a dress that can be rolled up and packed into a bag for either a quick summer weekend getaway or a longer trip. And at $165.00, this was a no brainer for me, since I live in t-shirt dresses all summer long. Whether long or short, a cotton dress will take you far, travel with ease and roll out of your suitcase virtually crease free. This one, by Enza Costa, certainly did. I will admit that it is a little on the short side, but when worn with either flats or low chunky heels, it is perfect for either day or night. The little gathering on the side is a terrific waist defining feature. I really love the ease and functionality of this dress. I wore it in Budapest with silver espadrille flats, and here in LA with these extremely comfy slingbacks, that are now on sale! My white see through PVC shopper has been my go to bag all summer and I plan on taking it right through to the end of September.

Keeping it au naturel for this look    Clé de de Peau concealer        hands down my favorite since it stays put and has SPF 25. I wear it on my lids and undereye area.    Clé de Peau tinted moisturizer    I am obsessed with this product. It gives just the right amount of coverage and has SPF 50!    Tom Ford Emotion Proof eyeliner        Mr. Ford kept his promise when he called this emotion proof. This eyeliner stays put whether you are crying, laughing or caught in a rainstorm. It comes off easily with eye makeup remover. I won’t wear anything else!     Chantelcaille mascara        I adore this mascara for both its lengthening and long lasting-wear features. As a bonus, it smells like roses! I kept my lips nude: Tom Ford lip:    Lip Sculptor Crayon in Divulge     ,      Spanish Rose      and      Universal Appeal      Lip colors.   I have been growing out my brows with    NeuBrow        and filling them in with    Hourglass Brow pencil.
