Day 2 down of StyleWeek Northeast 2015, and what a day it was. I started out planning to wear this outfit. Right before I was about to leave, my skirt zipper broke. The skirt was not too tight at all, so it’s obviously a defective zipper. I don’t know if I’m going to try to return it or invest in a tailor to put in a quality zipper… but anyway, that’s just another lesson: when your going to an important event and running late (like I always am… Instagram isn’t going to check itself, m’ right?) alway plan a backup outfit!
Wardrobe malfunction aside, let’s get to the good stuff… (if you want to see how I’ve been doing my makeup all week, then be such to check out the end of this post!) (more…)
New York Fashion Week may be over, but that doesn’t mean the fashion stops! This week is StyleWeek Northeast 2015… and I’ll be there covering the events all week. I’ll be vlogging the event, but with so many talented designers and so much going on at StyleWeek I just had to cover each night here on the blog! (more…)
Ahhh, the off the shoulder top. It is the number 2 nemesis of the full busted… second only to the strapless dress. This baring your shoulders goes in and out of style, but this season it’s back. So if you’re a chesty babe, here are some times to help you navigate the trend… (more…)
Every generation has major life events.. things that everyone remembers exactly where they were when they happened. In my parents generation it was the JFK assassination. I feel like, in my lifetime, there have been quite a few major events that I will never forget. Maybe it’s just in my nature to “Never Forget.” Having a Birthday on a day like Pearl Harbor Day (the anniversary of it… I’m not THAT old) gave me a unique perspective on days of Remembrance. I’ll bet those with birthdays today know what I’m talking about.
So in addition to my usual “What I’m Loving This Week,” I thought I would add a “Where I Was When” section as a tribute to the anniversary of Sept 11th… (more…)
Selena Gomez always looks classic and elegant, so I wanted to do a makeup look inspired by the look her makeup artist Jake Bailey gave her for the VMAs (and I just had to use her hit Good For You). I used her exact eye liner, mascara, and lipstick from Cover Girl. I didn’t have her exact shadow pencil, and the mix I made came out a little bright… but the whole look is affordable because everything I used came came from the drugstore….
The swingin’ 60s were a fun time (so I hear, I’m not old enough to remember, but I love Austin Powers so I’ll call myself and expert). However, the waif thin body was the “in” look of the time. Twiggy was the it girl, and the a-line shift dresses of the day worked so perfectly on a boyish figure. I’m sure there were curvy girls in that era, but you rarely see them images of them. So when the mod look started to show up on the runways, I got nervous. Determined to not let my bust-line hold me back, I asked myself the question I always ask in tricky fashion situations: WWJHHOMMD (What Would Joan Holloway Harris of Mad Med Do). I think this is a look Joan would ROCK! (more…)
This is my first “Everyday Life’ type vlog… I’m talking all about the return of Fashion Police (missing Joan Rivers, and fan girling Brad Goreski, Giuliana Rancic, and NeNe Leakes), being a girl with boobs and why it’s not always fun, unboxing some jewelry, taking photos for my blog, and reviewing some new liquid lipsticks!
I thought I would start using my Friday post to share my favorite links, things that I have been excited about for the past week, and any big news that may be going on on ES. So grab a healthy snack like my favorite acai bowls, make some tea, and see what I’ve been loving this week…
