Last month I was asked to I participate in the Marshalls fall fashion challenge where I was given a $100 gift card to shop for a look (or looks) inspired by fall’s top trends. The task was simple; choose a trend from these three: color, prints or ladylike with an edge. Of course I chose “ladylike with an edge”. I scoured the stores looking for shifts and dresses that would get me through New York Fashion Week without too much fuss.
I found two Anne Klien shifts, similar to those above and a two pairs of simple (edgy, shall we say) chroc pumps. I tried my best to stick with the beauty trends, even though I am a very simple and classic (or shall I say “whatever is most comfy”) kind of gal. The amazing thing about it was how many great finds there were at the store. I had to focus on my goal, and not get distracted….Joe jeans, cozy sweaters…oh my!!

NARS SS13 Timo Weiland artist in action 1 hi res
Last night, I had the pleasure of meeting NARS Global Director of Artistry James Boehmer, who could haven’t been cooler. Seriously cool. We talked makeup and Fashion Week, and he let me in on the secrets of NARS artists, and that “they always want one piece of definition within the neutral palette.
New York Fashion Week isn't all about the glitz and glamour of clothes, hair and makeup….it is also all about the little details that make a look complete. That is my favorite part of Fashion Week. The fact that even the smallest details, such as nails, can be so intricate and complete a look. Here are two inspired looks by Essie for the Tory Burch and Phillip Lam shows. Love!
Lets face it, at one time or another we have all dreamed of being a rockstar. I personally use my car as my own personal stage and belt out my best Tina Turner every chance I get. Yet, when I want to look like I rockstar, I tend to turn to my three favorite classic pieces pumped up with some fierce accesories. Softer colors still keep the look elegant, while the skulls, and prints add an extra punch.
This morning I was reading Yahoo's Fashion+Beauty section, and read the most incredible article. As a "healthy" girl (or shall we say curvy?) myself, I have always been horrified at the medias perception of what a beautiful woman should look like. Skinny, Tall, and a strong resemblence to Barbie seems to be the norm. But I, like many others, am a whole different type of normal beauty. Curvy, soft, and no where near a size 0. Yet, I believe I shine. Why can't we focus on inner beauty, the radiance of a woman's smile, the curve of her hips, and the light in her eyes. I hope you enjoy this article as much as I did.
It has been awhile since I last wrote one of my passion infused posts on products or looks that were my latest inspiration. To be honest, it has been awhile since I knew what to say.
For the past week I have rehearsed in my head all the new posts and jolly happenings that I would burst back into the blogosphere with; "It's New York Fashion Week!
