The Animal Print Sweater: Zebra Edition

Sure, we know that leopard has been one hot commodity these past seasons in this jungle we call fashion, with the print popping up on everything we lay eyes on. But it’s not the only reigning supreme in the animal kingdom; zebra is stealing the spotlight, and quickly.

Animal prints are pretty bold to say the least, so as expected, many shy away, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t any subtle patterns for the faint-hearted. Take this oversized sweater for example, it looks like zebra print when you stare long enough, but it can also look like an abstract way of drawing lines, right? Pair with a skirt, rolled up jeans, over an a-line dress, with heels, sneakers, or even boots, and it’s a winner winner, chicken dinner.

An interesting project between Victoria Beckham and Skype, gives us a look behind her fashion journey the last five years, and up-to-date coverage leading up to her fashion week show, all in an interactive and innovative presentation.
Skype will provide a front-row seat to the action behind Victoria’s global brand, allowing fans and fashion students to interact with industry insiders such as Bay Garnett (stylist), Suki Cheema (textile designer), and even an opportunity to collaborate with Victoria Beckham herself, as she holds an “In Conversation With” panel for which you can submit questions, and take away inspiration to apply to your own journey.
With many fashion movies, documentaries, and series evolving on the scene, this is the first all-access interactive story to be displayed. From the spark that launched her business, to the innovation, collaboration, entrepreneurship and embracing of technology that empowers her creativity, all presented through articles, videos, images and interviews.

Pharmacy finds.

I’m all for a good splurge on makeup, but when there’s a good deal, I refuse to say no. When I heard there was a new opaque black eyeliner in town, I had to check it out for myself, which led to some wandering in the makeup aisle of Tarjay. Before I knew it, my cart was packed with more useless items than a yard sale, but these three little gems stood out!

L’oreal’s Silkissime eyeliner is the JAM! It seriously glides on like silk, and stays put, not to mention the color is blacker than coal. This is officially the first eyeliner I’m in love with from a pharmacy brand.

Next up, we have the Power Volume mascara also from L’oreal, in Black Smoke. Makes my lashes thicker and well-coated sans clumps, which is always a great thing. So far, so great!

And lastly, I was in need of some basic everyday au naturale shades, and this did the trick. It’s a matte finish which is ideal for the daytime, and it stayed put throughout the day, so another win for me.

P.S. If you have dark eyebrows, this eyeshadow palette is perfect for touching up, especially the ends.

Chic Fille: Capucine Safyurtlu

The French way or the highway. Perhaps you’ve seen her walking alongside Emmanuelle Alt on streetstyle blogs, or in a heard of the “French Editors Crew”. If you’re unfamiliar with her, she is the fashion and market editor of Vogue Paris, which automatically makes her an “it” girl. And with an enthralling name like Capucine - say it with me “Ca-pu-cheeeen” (has a nice ring to it, no?) you’re bound to have some interest in this woman. Her effortless style is just an added bonus!

Ahhhh, the topic of skin - my favorite.
I try to be as consistent as I can with my skincare routine, which includes a face mask of some sort, once a week. I’ve tried a multitude of these masks, and try to test out new ones every so often, but there’s always a favorite that you just keep coming back to. For me, that favorite is a Russian acne mask from overseas (so unfortunately I can’t find a link to direct you to).
A good I did recently stumble upon, is this Bright White Mask from Boscia, that brightens your complexion, and gives your skin that sought-after “glow”. For me, the perk is it’s a “peel-off” situation. For anyone that knows me and my picking habits, knows that I jump at any chance to pick and peel at something.
Results vary from skin to skin, but on my skin, it did it’s job in brightening, as well as lifting dirt out of my pores while peeling off. What I have to stress on, is that you MUST put on a THICK layer of this mask for an easy peel-off. If your mask is even the slightest see-through color, it will take you FOREVER to take off.
Please listen to my advice, thank you, and have a great day.

Uncuffed and dangerous.

The blank slate in your closet? A white button down shirt. Dress it up, dress it down, add some cufflinks, or un-cuff the whole damn thing, wear it under, wear it over, or completely alone (think Tom Cruise in Risky Business). Your options are endless, which brings me back to my reoccurring theme on the blog - “closet staples”.

Most people think “work-attire” when they think of button downs, but depending on how you style it, this shirt can take you from work, straight to the beach. Don’t just stop at owning one, having options is always best, from well-tailored, to over-sized (men’s shirts are preferred), to luxurious fabrics - such as silk, for more festive outings.

Here, I’ve undone my cuffs for a more casual effect, after all, I live in LA, I’ve got to blend in with this super-casual crowd, ya know?

2013 was a good year in the film world, and with the Oscar’s around the corner, it’s time to do a little reflecting on the movies.

I’m embarrassed to admit how many times my butt was sitting in a movie-theatre seat, chowing down on some popcorn and raisinettes — at least I saw some good flicks. My personal favorites were Blue Jasmine, Her, and The Butler — truly films of good quality.

What were your favorites?

Gone to the dark side.

My polish drawer has probably more dark shades than light, yet you’ll hardly catch me actually sporting it, and I blame my mother for that reason. She instilled in my mind, as a little girl, that dark nail shades aren’t “lady-like”, and if it were 1987, I might’ve agreed, but times have surely changed.

Although I’m sure somewhere in the back of my mind her opinion still torments me, my own personal reasoning, for lack of color on my fingertips, is due to chips. Chipped nails are probably THE most repulsive thing a woman can do to herself, and when dark polish chips, it’s VERY evident. It’s almost as bad as spinach stuck in your teeth, while talking, on a first date bad.

Avoiding the chipped-nail problem-o has gotten easier with a few tricks I’ve learned, and that is cleaning your nails well, before applying polish. Not just soap-and-water clean, but wipe-down-with-acetone-after, clean. If you have access to nail bondaid from OPI, it’s the best! Second tip, is making sure your polish is new, and thirdly, a great top coat. My longtime favorite is Seche Vite, which cuts your drying time in half, gives the gel-effect, and makes polish last longer.

When you’ve handled the chippage issue, dark polish looks beautiful, especially during the cooler seasons, and this metallic shade of black jazzes up the usual solid. Mix it up in the dark.

Frisky Friday!
Valentine’s Day is coming up, which means you’ve probably seen a whole lot of push from retailers to shop for lingerie. But then you kind of have to wonder if lingerie is just a massive ruse by these retailers, to make us believe it’s vital to have sexy underwear for a good love-life. As much as I’d like to say yes to the above statement, after talking to the male-species throughout the years, and collecting the data (mentally), men do in fact, love themselves some lingerie on a woman, and for some (and by some I mean most), it’s even their kryptonite. Is it necessary on a regular day basis? No, but constantly wearing your granny panties, comfy bunny slippers, and go-with-everything-nude bras, don’t exactly woo the opposite sex, or make you feel sexy inside.
I’ll admit it, I love being comfortable, and my undergarments are usually neutral-toned/textured for a seamless outfit, because let’s be honest - those lace frills, don’t exactly flatter your form-fitting clothing. Luckily, during the winter months, heavy fabrics do a good job in covering up those imperfect lines, giving you a good reason to sport a little sexy number underneath. And whether or not you have a significant other, wearing seductive undergarments should be for you! Think of it as an instant self-confidence booster that the public doesn’t have to know about; lingerie is no longer just bedroom attire.
