Denim for Days

Denim for Days

After a week of sporting Fall scarves and sweaters, it finally feels like Spring! I couldn’t wait to put to use some of my Spring finds. A denim jacket is the ultimate staple, it’s practically the mother to the chambray shirt–just as fabulous, yet it goes with literally everything.. and them some. I have a few denim jackets of medium and dark washes and a variety of lengths, but never really stumbled upon a great light wash. I was so excited when I received this Spring essential from AG Adriano Goldschmied. It was perfect. I apologize in advance for excessive wear.

Holiday Eyes

Holiday Eyes

Around the Holidays, I love having fun with my eye makeup and going a bit more glam. These are my favorite holiday hues equipped for any holiday soirée.

Holiday Eyes

Laura Mercier Petite Baked Eye Colour Trio in Golden. I fell in love with this trio online, it’s such a rich palette of deep shimmery hues.

Holiday EyesJane Iredale ‘Simply Magical’ Mystikol™ Eyeliner & PurePressed Eye Shadow Triple in Sundown. The wonderful staff at Jane Iredale sent me this gorgeous pair, and i couldn’t be more excited! This combo makes the prettiest smoky eye. I recently wore it to my friend’s wedding, and received so many compliments. It has a great contrast of colors making it perfectly subtle. The long-lasting wear and silky application made me a huge fan of the line!

Holiday Eyes
Chanel Illusion D’ombre Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow in Vision. This color is the epitome of holiday glam. Wear it solo or amp up the sparkle to the shadow of your choice.
Holiday Eyes
Lancôme ‘Holiday 2012 Color Collection’ Color Design Shadow & Liner Palette in Sparkling Intoxication. The sparkle in this palette is anything but subtle. The unexpected color combo makes a wicked smoky eye. A pinky hued lip is the perfect pair.
Holiday Eyes Lancôme ‘Color Design’ Shadow & Liner Palette in Taupe Craze. I rarely wear eyeshadow daily, but when I do this palette is my go-to. I love the shimmery taupe colors.

Each palette makes a fab holiday treat for any beauty-obsessed friends or family!

Plaid & Polkadots

It may not feel like the Holiday season just yet (today it was almost 70 degrees!) But lately, I’ve found myself leaning towards cozy plaids, and statement metallics. (oh and a festive red lip!.. love Chanel Rouge Allure Luminous in Inimitable)

Black & Bronze

Metallic denim is a chic alternative to your basic blues for day or night. A chambray shirt is a great option to tone down the look for day. (Wise Words from the Staff at J.Crew: “When in doubt, Chambray out!”) A sleek black blazer puts an edgy spin on the denim for night. I love the sheen of these bronze beauties, & they’re under $30!

Oxblood & Leather

Fall is my favorite time of the year. The cooler weather, cozy knits, and pumpkin scented everything make the season’s festivities that much better. I love Fall fashion, because it’s the time of the year to be creative with the endless opportunities of layering. I was excited to pull out all of my new fall finds from my recent trip to NYC.
