Diane von Furstenberg’s Zalda Bis Lace Dress is the perfect Valentine’s Day date night or special occasion dress. The polka dot lace at the top of the dress is super sexy without being too revealing and the silhouette of the dress is very form fitting without being sleazy. The dress would be perfect with yesterday’s Shoe of the Week post. At $385, the price of the dress is a bit much. A girl can dream… [SOURCE]
My sorority sister’s favorite comedic character Bon Qui Qui tried to get a job at the Alexander Wang flagship store in SoHo. New York’s fashion elite were not ready for what Bon Qui Qui had to offer. Check out cameos from Alessandra Ambrosio, A$AP Rocky, Shannan Click, Simon Doonan and Natasha Lyonne while dying of laughter. The video was done for the Spring 2013 T by Alexander Wang collection. Enjoy!
The Cate Suedette Banana Heel Court Shoes from Boohoo.com is a really cute and super sexy shoe. I think this shoe would be perfect for Valentine’s Day and the girl who doesn’t want to wear head to toe red. This shoe is for the girl that doesn’t want to be a walking Valentine’s Day cliche. She would probably wear this with a LBD, aka Little Black Dress. The heel is only $30 which makes the Cate Suedette Banana Heel Court Shoe the hot ball on a budget accessory this week. [SOURCE]

Valentine’s Day is coming up really soon, so I have been inspired by red St. Valentine’s Day Decor. I don’t really celebrate this holiday, but I am really loving all of the red decor floating around the internet. [SOURCE]
On Saturday, I went to the grand reopening of M2 Boutique. Now located on Two Notch Road, after moving from the Vista, the store is bright, spacious, and on a busy thoroughfare. The store is still stocked with a few winter goodies, but there are a lot of spring clothes and jewelry as well. I like the way the store is situated with the fitting rooms behind the cash wrap. I also like how they have bathrooms. You would be surprised at the number of boutiques that don’t have bathrooms. Anyway. Check them out today. They are open from 12pm-8pm. Go find you some cute spring break clothes.

Here is my review of the Milani Cream to Powder Foundation. Why have I been sleeping on this foundation? You all know how I love a good cream to powder foundation, and it is from the drugstore too! I’m so glad I found this because it is so smooth and light. You don’t really need that much on your face. It says it provides a light to medium coverage, but I was able to get full coverage out of it to cover my hyperpigmentation. I still didn’t put that much on though. I have never used a foundation this light that covers so well. I am using the shade #12 Pecan. It is the darkest shade available. I got my foundation from CVS, but I know they have it at Target, Walgreens, and other beauty supply stores. The website says is sells for $7.99. Here is the website for the foundation. Here is the website to find your shade.
FCC: I paid for this makeup myself. This is an honest review.
Michelle Obama looked amazing on Monday at the 2013 Presidential Inauguration. She wore at checkered coat and dress by Thom Browne, a belt by J. Crew, a sweater by Reed Krakoff, and custom boots! Oh and did you check out those hot bangs?! The ball gown was again designed by Jason Wu, and that was fantastic too! She looked fabulous! [SOURCE][SOURCE]

Check out pics from Alexis Mabille, Christian Dior, Giambattista Valli, Chanel, Elie Saab, Ulyana Sergeenko, and Valentino. [SOURCE]
Being in DC this week for the inauguration, I was very inspired by recent inauguration fashion. Jimmy Choo’s Black Kera Platform Sandal is perfect for inauguration balls and galas. Unfortunately the shoe would put me back $1743. A girl can dream… [SOURCE]
The New Look Stefano Cut Out Platform Shoes from ASOS are really cute and go great with those pastel colored shirts and jeans that are so popular this season. These $35.16 shoes will have your toes longing for spring! [SOURCE]
I am really loving monochromatic interior design right now. I made another post about this last week. It might be the starkness of the look that just gets me. Either way, I am loving this bedroom look right now. It is simple and clean, but it still looks ready to be lived in. [SOURCE]
I am really loving the neon/gold vibe from the latest Atelier Versace couture show. I can’t believe Couture Fashion Week is here already. I feel like it was just here. The Atelier Versace show was full of 80s architectural sexuality. I was also digging the slicked back hair and dark raccoon smokey eye. Looks like Couture Fashion Week is starting off with a bang!

I love Lakiastar’s makeup and hair tutorials. Her simple everyday makeup tutorial is really freaking good! She looks like she isn’t wearing makeup at all. It won’t leave you looking crazy during day and is perfect for those who aren’t comfortable wearing makeup everyday.This tutorial is perfect for everyday and work. Check it out above!
Adele returns to the spotlight after taking some time to heal her voice and have a baby, and she looks great! She really, really looked amazing! Adele glowed as she walked down the red carpet, and stormed the stage in a fit of giggles as she won her first Golden Globes. Congrats Adele! [Source]
I love platform Christian Louboutin Multicolored Pitou pumps, and these are no exception! The tie-dye print makes me almost long for spring. Even though we just had some spring-like weather a few days ago, I prefer to wear sweaters, not shorts in the winter. Anyway. These shoes are $995, so I won’t be buying them. *Sad face A girl can dream though…
Carmakoma’s new plus size collection, titled “Express Yourself”, for SS13 is amazing! I am not surprised because the brand’s collections are always great. As usual, I want everything they put out in their lookbook. Check out some of the clothes above and below. [SOURCE]
Mango’s Suede Stiletto is your best bet for work or for play. These mid-height heels are right on trend. While platforms are still popular, the pointy heel is coming back. This shoe comes in three colors and is going fast because everything on Mango’s website is 50% off. They were $89.99, but now they are $44.99. Photo from Mango.
What do you do to a stark white kitchen to liven it up a bit? You add a neutral colored rug to color up the place! I love how the rug at the bottom of the picture livens up the black and white kitchen. Are you a fan of this look? What would you do to this kitchen? [SOURCE]
2013 is the year I finally get chose! I say that every year, but I am going to make this happen because my love life is always nonexistence. In the meantime, I’m going to take this first date tips and tricks that Nicollette Mason shared with Hello Style. They are really good tips for how to act and dress on a first date. Hopefully I will finally get to use them this year.
