London Fashion Week Favorites!(and a quick definition of fashion week, for those who don’t know)

17 Sep

Week two of the month-long fashion frenzy around the globe is wrapping up and I have some favorites to share.

I was asked to explain fashion week by quite a few people, so here it goes…….Fashion “month” occurs twice a year and is a showcase of designers Spring/Summer collections and Fall/Winter collections. These collections are shown in advance giving buyers time to fill orders and stock up just in time for the season.  For example, right now it’s Fall and the designers are showing their upcoming Spring/Summer collection, and during Spring, designers showcase their fall/winter collections.  Notice I said fashion MONTH earlier- that is because fashion week takes place over four consecutive weeks in four different countries, totaling a month of FUN! Is there an order? YES fashion week starts in New york, then jumps across the pond to London, followed by Milan and ending in Paris! There you have it fashion week/month summed up.

There are also other smaller scale fashion weeks across the globe, but the four countries listed are the main players in the fashion game!

Let’s get to my London fashion week faves!

Perfect Summer Palettes!

3 May

Every year Spring/Summer rolls around, I get so excited to use my bolder and brighter lip colors, eyeshadows and blushes! There is no better time to incorporate beautiful color into your makeup routine. This Spring/Summer Lorac released 2 great colorful palettes that are sleek and perfect for travel as well as reasonably priced at $24. Both palettes feature 10 shimmer and matte shadows which include 2 oversized neutral shades allowing countless color combinations. The palettes are quite similar, so if you can only afford one, don’t worry!  One palette (After Glo)does feature some brighter colors than the other palette (Summer Glo) which you will see in the pictures below! It is just a matter of taste and whether you want to remain more on the “neutral/colorful” side or the ‘bright/colorful” side.  Either way, these palettes are PERFECT for summertime and are So pretty!

 

Lorac Summer Glo palette $24 This palette is colorful, but includes slightly more subtle colors.

Cute As a Button Cards!

28 Apr

I love games- any and all games including cards! Every household has at least 1 deck of cards and fashionistas are no different. The question is- Why should we have the same boring deck of cards as every one else when they make super cute cards for people like us?! I must say- I really do own the cutest decks of cards I’ve ever seen and you should too.  One is a completely pink set of cards by Bicycle(the card brand that’s been around for decades )and the other is a boxed set of 2 decks featuring a pink deck and a mint deck by Tiffany & Co. Whenever I bust out my cards, conversation ensues! They are THAT cute! These cards also make great gifts as well.

 

The all pink deck is priced at $5.46

The Tiffany & Co boxed set is priced at $35 (You can call your local Tiffany & Co. for their selection of colors)
