Beauty Bit- The Red Lip Ruled The 2015 Oscars

Margot Robbie
The red lip ruled the 2015 Oscars. From Margot Robbie to Emma Stone- who I was told is wearing Revlon of course- red lips were everywhere. Now a few ladies did opt for the neutral, natural lip, but their beauty looks didn’t stand out to me. It was the Oscars for crying out loud! If there ever were a time to go red, last night was it. Below you will find a bunch of red lip products to choose from with various price points. I picked out some lip glosses, lip sticks, and more because I know everyone doesn’t automatically want a lipstick. Photo from here.

nyfwRow 1, L to R: Delpozo, Georgine Row 2, L to R: Narciso Rodriquez, Rosie Assoulin  Row 3, L to R: Michael Kors, The Row

I don’t know if you have been following the shows and trends lately, but there seems to be some kind of clash going on between the 90s and the 70s. Some of you favorite styles-and many that you hated- from the 90s are coming back full force, but coming in neck in neck with them is the 70s. Culottes in various lengths of short are back, suedes and animal prints, platforms, and even bell bottoms are coming back. Are you ready for the 70s trend? Is it something you are going to attempt come this fall? I might. We shall see how it goes. Photos from the Georgine PR reps and Style.com.

FTC: This #TBT Style Icon With Boohoo.com post was done in conjunction with Boohoo.com. They also supplied the clothes.

Hey everyone. Can you guess what my #TBT Style Icon with boohoo.com is? Hint, hint. The name is in the title of this post. British retailer Boohoo.com told me to pick out some clothes and base them on one of my style icons for a #tbt or Throwback Thursday post. One of my favorite movies from the 90s is The Craft. I love the story of four teenage witches pick to live in a house with seven strangers….sorry. Sorry. Wrong show.

Beauty Bit-Rihanna Was A Natural Beauty At The 2015 Grammys

rihanna grammys
Rihanna was a natural beauty at the 2015 Grammys.  She had a neutral smokey eye and nude lips. That’s it. That’s all.  Nothing more than that, and the look suited her.  I think this is a look that I would like to see more of on the red carpet and in everyday life. You don’t have to look beat all day every day. I think we forget that sometimes in our quest to have the hottest makeup look.

90s style shoes
90s style shoes are all the rage at Topshop this spring. They have many shoes that were popular in the 90s, and I am not mad at that. I love chunky platforms, espadrilles, and mules. A lot of these shoes are under $100, so they won’t break your style budget. Get in on the trend before it is too late. Footwear is one area you can have fun in this spring! Check out all the latest styles below.

Bad Bish- Stylish Relationship Goals

Stylish relationship goals
I have stylish relationship goals. I promise you I’m not vain, however I want the ability to have my future beau and I look effortlessly cool. I don’t want to look like we try to hard, because when it comes to getting dressed everyday…I really don’t try that hard. When I look at this picture of style icons Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsbourg, I just see cool. My future beau and I may never be that cool. That is a-ok, but…we can try.

Beauty Bit- Thanksgiving Day Beauty

Thanksgiving Day Beauty
Thanksgiving is almost here, so you need to get your beauty look together. I found a lot of fall festive options to wear on Turkey Day from Sephora and Ulta. Now is the time to get into these fall colors. I love wearing plums, berries, bronzey browns, and lots of golden shimmers. For the past two or three years, I have been wearing brown and gold eyeshadow, golden blush with a hint of plum or berry and a deep and very dark lip. I can’t wait to play around with my makeup on Thursday. Photos from Sephora.com and Ulta.com. Find more options below.

Shoe of the Week- Cute and Fashionable Winter Boots

winter boots
Winter boots are no longer ugly. Many brands make some cute and fashionable winter boots. Most of the boots featured below don’t even look like the regular chunky looking winter boots, and most of them are either winterproof, weatherproof, or waterproof. That is really great considering winter has come early and strong, and you know you need to get yourself a pair of boots before the next snow.

Shoe of the Week- The Classic Black Pump

Black Pumps

Just like the little black dress, the classic black pump or a cute pair of black heels have a classic appeal to them. You can wear them with everything and wear them just about anywhere. Few shoes will get you as much mileage as the classic black pump. While looking on ASOS, I saw a slew of black pumps that instantly caught my eye. Some are available in half and wide sizes. All of the ones that I picked are under $100, but the ones below are just a sliver of what you will find on the website. Photo from ASOS.

Shoe of the Week- Wide Calf Boots That Actually Fit From DSW

Wide Calf Boots

I recently got some wide calf boots from DSW that actually fit my calf muscles. Color me surprised. When I see a boot labeled wide calf in the store, they don’t usually fit.  I get really skeptical when I see the label on boots because of that. However… When I went to DSW there were a ton of boots to pick from. Some fit and some didn’t, but the ones I bought look fantastic.

Currently Craving – Back-to-School Fashions

back-to-school-college-3

Ahhh! It’s that time of year again; back-to-school! No more late nights, road trips and movie nights, it’s time to get back to the books, studying and forgetting that you ever had a social life. Summer came and went in the blink of an eye, and if you’re like me, you’d do anything to have another week or two of summer relaxation. Then again, a part of me, is ready to stand in front of my closet and pick out an outfit for the first day of school. Yes, even as a college senior, I still get excited about what to wear on the first day back. I know I’m not the only one out there.

The first day of class is always scary, especially if you have no idea where you are going. For those who may be starting their 2014-2015 school year starting for some next week, here are some outfits that will have you looking and feeling good on your way to class. You will definitely get an ‘A’ in style on the first day, even if you have no idea where you are going!

Outfit #1: Laid back and Comfy

293c08b299833804d756c0a3a68cc6d0

With this particular outfit, instead of wearing the sweater, you could wear the wear a white tee and have the sweater around your waist for when it gets cold. Unless you live in windy cites, like Chicago, then you should wear the sweater and a shirt underneath it so you won’t freeze to death.

Outfit #2: Preppy meets Boho

640fb28b3a065b34efd184bbc497a54d

Are you a Pretty Little Liars fan? If so, then you know this outfit has Spencer Hastings written all over it!

Outfit #3: Minimal Fashionista

0f0ce42c271700ac917994ae779b5bfcThis outfit is for the fashionista who like to keep it simple in a pair of jeans and a white tee but wants to add a little flavor to the mix with accessories, like the floral scarf.

Outfit #4: The Girl Next Door:

f9edec00e4c95dd6322089012cbd1014

This is a girly, yet simplistic outfit for the girl who doesn’t go out of her way just to look cute. Keeping it simple with a watch and a pair of sparkly flats, she’s all set!

Outfit #5: California Glamour Girl

dc6b0d08ca67a09dd526e17dc128ca18

It’s still summertime, so taking advantage of pastels and bright colors is the way to go whether it be with skirts or dresses. Accessorize with different kinds of jewelry, aqua would be my go to color with this coral look. If you aren’t looking to be a “California Glamour Girl”, try adding leather accessories to give this look some edge.

Outfit #6: Sporty Urban Chick

be5fa76e672d1dce704e93682be894ce

This look is for a girl who loves her vans and isn’t that into shopping. If you love tribal prints, this look is for you! Keep the accessories to a minimum; all you need is a pair of skinny jeans, a tee, and your vans and you’re all set!

Outfit #7: Hanna Marin

0166d0086a80845b3c08ff752c7a6a6d

Another reference to Pretty Little Liars, this look has Hanna Marin written all over it; girly patterns and purses. Wanting to be comfortable during the day, a pair of white chucks will complete this outfit.

Which outfit is your favorite?
