Everyday Bombshell - As Seen on Twin Cities Live

This post includes an affiliate link and a pair of false lashes that were given to me for review. All opinions are my own. 

Today's segment on Twin Cities Live was extra special, because my husband Dan joined me. It was his official TV debut and I think he killed. No, I'm not biased in the least bit.

Click the picture to watch the segment. 

I don't usually dress around what Dan is wearing, but given the venue I decided to let him choose an outfit for himself and then complement it with mine. I went with a pair of skinny jeans, a new orange gingham shirt and leopard ballet flats. I added touches of Bombshell glamour with mink false lashes from Esquido and a chunky beaded necklace.


As you are probably aware, this is not my usual look. But I was inspired to try something new after attending a thrifting party at Arc Value Village. Arc Value Village has a terrific personal stylist named Michelle who created several outfits for me, pulled from inventory at the thrift store.

My friend Alice, fellow blogger and Twin Cities Live regular, invited me and it was a great experience. My biggest issue with thrift shopping is that I don't have the patience to dig through racks of unorganized clothes searching for a great find. Michelle did the digging for each of us who attended the party - and it was great! She pulled this gingham shirt for me, and I'm excited to incorporate it into my wardrobe. If you live in the Twin Cities, you can partake of Michelle's services for free - like her on Facebook to learn more.

The Outfit
Gingham shirt- Old Navy, thrifted
Black beaded necklace - Mark
Skinny Jeans - given to me by Sealed with a Kiss
Leopard Ballet flats- Nordstrom Rack
Mink eyelashes - given to me by Esquido

    1. I would say that Dan would lend you a couple tablespoons of whiskey...but he probably wouldn't. He barely lets me have any!

  4. Lashes are great. I am not sure how to wear them myself :-(. That shirt looks great on you.

    1. I'll have to do a review/show you guys how I get my lashes on. They're such a fun way to add a little glam.

  5. I agree, I don't shop thrift because I can't handle the assortment. I love Nordstrom Rack because they have some great basic solids that I always like! Also, you two are so funny on the video, we need to get together sometime!
