I can still hear my mom say it now, “oh, you forgot, put your lipstick on!”  Growing up in the ‘gloss age’ I was definitely a bit of a rebel always wearing a bright lipstick…all credit going to Lisa Ervin…who runs marathons in lipstick…and liner.  I’ve always LOVED lipstick.  Through the years I learned what worked.  The tones, the ones that needed liners, the ones that needed gloss, how to keep it from running, how to apply it without a mirror.  But today, I’ll focus on shades.  I usually live

Flowers do have power.  From a rose on The Bachelor to the sheer joy/terror of a flower girl of dropping tiny petals down the aisle…flowers can make real statements.  Especially when you wear them…and I’ve been really into wearing them as summer waves goodbye.  Also, I’ve got my fashion sources where I can find major STEALS these days.  And thanks to the great feedback on the steals I’ve been finding for you I did it again!  I’m talking like $15-$50 steals…really.  So let’s all be flower children today… Dress: Reformation //

So my makeup school fell to the back burner as I was in real makeup school and consumed with fashion posts, but I’m bringing it back this week with our third week of ‘school’.  For those of you who may have just started reading, I’m taking everyone through some basics of beauty.  I’m highlighting some of my favorite go to game changer products and then I’ll be going into detail about how to use them once I get you through the ‘alphabet’.  Here are my L through Q… L –

You know when you think back on an outfit and you can’t remember anything but the jewels, they’re good jewels.  I love a good statement necklace.  LOVE.  Especially really fun custom looking pieces, like this Holst and Lee one I’m wearing.  Like, party time.  Not only does it make me feel like a hula girl but I feel it’s the perfect statement piece to close the summer.  Another way to close the summer…stocking up on white dresses during the super sale season…I’ve found you my top ten below. Necklace: Holst and Lee // Similar

I’m holding out for an IRO till the end of time.  But for reals holy holey shirts.  This is my new favorite go to. Shirt: IRO I love all the colors but I’m particularly loving this dusty rose shade and the classic white.  What’s awesome too about these shirts is how they wear.  The holes get larger and larger as you continue wearing them, and in my opinion, you look cooler and cooler…I feel like some sort of wanderlust cowgirl in my older ones.  I get mine at my favorite boutique in

Transitioning into fall, for me, is a total walk in the park.  Easy.  Because it’s my favorite.  I can almost hear the roar of an SEC football game, feel the fur vest in my hand, smell the pumpkin pie, feel the uncomfortability of the most elaborate Halloween costume in the land…but I’m getting ahead of myself.  So that’s why we’re just talking transition pieces.  So when summer begins to turn crisp I just add a few items to my summer wear.  Like this… Dress: Alexander Wang // Hat: Rag and Bone // Flannel: Rails So

Tee: Enza Costa // Jeans: Frame // Boots: Old Gringo I enjoy dressing like a vagabond sometimes.  And isn’t is funny how the more worn out an item is the pricier it tends to be?  I mean if we all had just kept all our dang clothes from high school we’d be set.  But I don’t fit into my clothes from high school so I’ve found some more that I feel are tried and true.  I’ve compiled a few of my favorite ‘worn out’ pieces…and brought along my favorite vintage

Dress: Calypso // Clutch: Lizzie Fortunado // Necklace: Lizzie Fortunado // Shoes: Monolo Blahnik // (click photos below for link to purchase) Raise your hand if you’re the person who carries the same bag for all occasions?  That is definatley  me.  I am the person in a formal gown or at a wedding reception with a huge bucket bag looking like I’m trying to rack up on wedding favors or something.  Well, here’s the thing I’ve learned…a clutch can make an entire outfit.  In comes the coolest…Lizzie Fortunato.  And I’m wearing her
