Fall Lipstick Must have

2 Oct

Every year myself and countless bloggers compile lists of our favorite Fall lipsticks to share with the world. Every year the same lipstick is on my list. I’m sharing only one color this year because I feel so strongly that it should be a part of every woman’s Fall lip color collection. Without a doubt, Mac Rebel is my go-to, must have Fall lip color.mac

The beautiful rich berry/wine hue is gorgeous and looks amazing on all skin tones as well.  I can’t even remember what tube I’m on at this point- I literally wear it all Fall long and into Winter as well. I love love love this color! What are your favorite fall lippies?

Lipstick Love!

21 Nov

I am all for bold lipsticks and may or may not have more shades of red than I need.  With that being said,  one can imagine how excited I was when Mac first announced their holiday collection with sparkly packaging. Once I tried on their amazing matte red lippie with tiny specs of glitter, I had to have it. Let me just add that the glitter is by no means tacky big ol’ pieces, they’re really tiny pieces of shimmer 🙂 This is absolutely my new favorite red lipstick and it is limited edition so I advise you to get yourself a tube NOW! Once they’re gone they’re gone!

Mac- Sparks of Romance available HERE.

Block Party!

23 Apr

Colorblocking is such a fun way to make a statement. It seems tricky at first but it can be done with ease. Lets start with the obvious, the absolute foolproof way to rock the block is by wearing a color block dress or a color blocked top and neutral bottoms. *Remember neutrals include black,white, grey and nude. As you get more comfortable with it you can start pairing up separates. If you want to start simple  you can pair a bright hue with a nude hue and if your feeling frisky you can pair two or more bold colors. I really love the look of a bright hues paired with a pastel hues also, very pretty. Adding a color blocked shoe to an otherwise simple outfit is also an easy way to add some oomph to your look.  Just try different combinations on and see what works for you. .

Here are some of my favorite color combos to block

  • Brown-peach-pink
  • Blue-yellow-orange
  • Orange-ivory-blue
  • Purple-blue-teal
  • Deep blue-bright pink-teal
  • Coral-grey-Ivory
  • Orange-ivory-fuschia
  • Royal blue-mint
  • Peach-mint

Zig Zag

5 Apr

Every wardrobe should include at least one zig zag piece.  I see zig zag patterns as a kind of stripe gone wild! They are so fun to wear.  I’ve been a Missoni fan since I was a kiddo and no zig zag post would be complete without thanking them for opening the zig zag painted door  for  fellow designers to take inspiration from. I prefer to wear zig zags with solids , sometimes I wear all black with my Missoni flats or a zig zag dress with beige strappy flat sandals and when I’m feeling extra zesty, I’ll pick a color from the zig zag piece that I’m wearing and pair it with a matching flat or clutch to bring it all together for a bold & bright look. Here are some fun zig zag looks to shop.
