Zooey Deschanel’s Dress Line!

27 Jan

Zooey Deschanel’s latest adventure had her designing dresses with Amercan designer Tommy Hilfiger.  The “adorkable” actress is known for her cute retro inspired style and the upcoming Spring line reflects that for sure. The capsule collection features 16 dresses that seem to be a perfect blend of all American mod meets 1960’s London chic. The collection ranges in price from $98-$199 and will be available April 14th at Macy’s stores and Tommy Hilfiger as well.

Berry Pretty Crimson Kiss

4 Sep

I am so excited to wear bold lip colors this Fall.  I wear lip color year round but I usually stick to nudes, peaches, corals and pinks in the warmer months. Every September I incorporate my wine hued favorites and shop for any new ones that spark my interest. I literally discovered these Wet n wild shades from a friend three days ago and I’m hooked! In this particular post I will focus on my favorite 5 reds. A crimson kiss looks great on all skin tones and works  any time of day or night.  With this bold lip I do go light on my eye makeup during the day  to keep a nice balance and I save the “crazy” eye for the evening i.e.. heavy on the shadow and or eyeliner etc.

My favorite 5.

Red can be scary at first but just try it on at the makeup counter, they will always let you sample some (make sure they shave the top layer off first, they are used to this request)

New to the whole red lip look? Start with a sheer coverage like the Givenchy,  it’s slightly pearlescent and lightly tints the lips.

Want to dive right into the red?  Then the other 4 choices below are for you.  They are true to tube color providing pigment rich intense color payoff, yes even the dollar ones are amazing! I promise!

Givenchy Rouge Interdit in Raspberry Shine ($30)

Wet n wild Silk Finish in  Cherry Frost 514A (99¢) Also available at drug stores.

Wet n wild SilkFinish in Just Garnet 552A (99¢)

NYC Ultra Moist Lipwear in Retro Red (99¢) Also available at drug stores.

MAC Satin Lipcolor in Rebel ($15)

Swatches…

Fair skin…

Medium skin…

Inspiration……. from cherry red to deep bordeoux…….these colors look great on everyone!

 

 

Where are you going to rock your red?????????

Chanel Couture Goes Vintage!

5 Jul

Entitled New vintage, Chanel’s Couture F/W 2012-13 show certainly had a retro feel.  The  nostalgic collection included many soft  pinks and greys in addition to some black and creams , very Jackie-O . The french fashion house was sure to include trademark boucle’ jackets and sparkly tweed pieces as well.  Overall, I really loved the femininity of the collection.  Here are some looks from the runway.
