NATURALLY NARS


If i were a rich girl ...all day long I'd bathe in NARS cosmetics.
Not since I belong to the Cult of 'Aveda' have I been so into a product line. I have now been to have a complimentary make up application 3 times at the NARS counter in the Bay, and everytime I've walked away feeling like a million bucks.  They don't pressure you to purchase anything, because by the end of the experience you're signing away your first born in exchange for the mud mask.
The products speak for themselves, but the make up artists are amazing. This time I was moved by Ayesha.  She didn't say a lot, but was well informed when I asked her questions.  She was focused, and genuinely was excited whenever she achieved the look she wanted.
Ayesha is not only employed at the Bay, but is a young fabulous freelance make-up artsist on her way to big big things. 
Ashiya's Makeup Portfolio is on Facebook.

THE LADY IN RED


I spotted this luscious beauty as she was on a quick break from what I'm sure is a fabulous life! 
She was gracious and sweet and wearing that vibrant red spring coat like nobody's business.
Her hair was not cut into any current, trendy style, but super shiny and full of life. 
 Her coquettish smile, bright red lips and quirky choice of footwear all spoke of a quiet confidence.
So for all of us who were wondering how to achieve a fully covered up sex appeal, 

the girl in the red coat has officially schooled us.

TOP MEN


This is how you do it.  I rarely get the opportunity to appreciate well dressed men (outside of my husband). There seems to be an abundance of younger men embracing fashion wholeheartedly...and then something happens.

LIFE.

These two friends are the perfect example of what a little extra attention and grooming can do. They both look immaculate- from the tailored blazer to the pink pullover. Even the small details like a Gucci wallet add to their sophisticated style confidence. 

Men, just because LIFE happens doesn't mean YOU can't happen.
The uber cool Topshop has a men's department, shop it "guilt free".

DO IT. LOVE IT.

WOMAN IN THE MIRROR

HAVE YOU SEEN THIS GIRL? 
She's a true beauty. she loves her friends, her family, her life. 
She's an art lover and was looking for some kind of abstract portrait.

 So, I decided to paint her this way.
 You see, Fazillah (Fuzz) is always smiling and stylishly put together. Bright colors are a staple in her wardrobe, if you invite her out for cocktails expect a hush to fall over the room when she enters.
I wanted her to look at this portrait and feel like it's a true reflection of herself...pared down.
 No glitter, just soul.  
After all, any of us who have spent time with her know it's all about her stunning eyes.

IF KIM WAS A...

COOL COTTON CAR SEAT
KIM KARDASHIAN  photo | Kim Kardashian
Love, love, love, this classic combination of Khaki, red, and white. Spring is a great opportunity to rock this color combination, and if your child's car seat is in need of some customization, you can bring this look to the back of your (very contemporary, almost like an SUV, super stylish of course) minivan
Nothing like a little extra luxurious comfort for you baby. This car seat cover from Vintage Lily is %100 cotton and easy to clean. For just under $100 you can upgrade a "pre-loved" car seat. 

Or you can get Kim's look "guilt free".

WILD SPRING FLORAL BOUQUET

Aaaaaaahhhhhh, Spring. 
A time for new beginnings, and fresh flowers. Or for some of us, like Kim, a time for new photo ops and shopping at Hermes. While I may not be toting the signature orange bag around  anytime soon, you can certainly bet I will be carrying a huge bunch of wild flowers. I never quite understood the whole pageant culture, but I love holding a beautiful bouquet from the market to my home, all the way smiling as if I'd just taken first prize. Whether you decide to slip into a floral romper, or head down to your local market, you'll definitely feel that special feeling. Trust me.

DO IT. LOVE IT.

BALMAIN LOOK FOR LESS












I, like a lot of you, have nowhere to appropriate to wear this ensemble.  However, I'm drawn to looks like these (courtesy of Balmain) like moths to a flame.  Fashion is supposed to be fun.  And maybe instead of waiting for the appropriate occasion, we should make the appropriate occasion, whatever and whenever we choose. 
So there you have it.  I'll be the one at the in line at the deli in the shredded khaki Tee and leatherette leggings. DO IT. LOVE IT.

DAY TO NIGHT FLORAL

NAVY PATTERN




SAUNDRA  
Wondering how you can transition a fun floral spring skirt from night to day! My solution is simple...add a corset. Madonna has shown us over the last 2 decades that bustiers will forever transform ANY outfit from day to night. They can be intimidating, but even the most conservative stylistas can pull off the look. If you're not sure, just switch out the skirt for some wide leg pants and you're good to go.     Accessories MinicciWhitney Large Shopper






This cute Arden B. full skirt is the feature item here. Black accessories are an easy choice to match with patterns.
