Things we love: The Smoky Eye

A must-have for Fall Fashion, the smokey eye is fierce, seductive, and fabulous. Balance it with a nude lip.

Here’s a link to their Etsy listings.

What’s in the works this week:

  • More quartz rings
  • A major cleaning out of my studio. It’s a disaster area, like to the point where I can barely function. It’s time to reorganize, get rid of the stuff I don’t use, and make a fresh go of it. ^_^

Black and White and Red all Over

Black, white, and red shine this month in all facets of fashion. To really make them pop, thrown in some gold for a little extra bling. 🙂

Clean Slate

Cooler weather is upon us, and now perhaps the bright neons of Spring and Summer and even some of the colorful prints of Fall are starting to seem a bit garish. Fear not!
White is taking center stage as we hit mid-Fall. Clean and classy, white is the perfect transitional tint, providing a fabulous detox and rest for the eyes.
Dusting white eyeshadow along the inner corner of the eye towards the bridge of the nose will make you look more awake and your eyes more open. Avoid the reverse raccoon effect by remembering to blend and keeping application light.

Delicious Denim

I’m having a blast with my new Polyvore account! I’m going to use it for future fashion articles. ^_^ 

Fall’s blue trend is continuing. This month it will be shades of denim and indigo blue that will shine in the spotlight, especially in accessories. This is one of my favorite colors, and I’m thrilled I have yet another excuse to make and buy more of it.

Fall Fashion Spotlight: The Shag Coat

Big, fluffy, shaggy fur coats made a comeback for fall. Alexander McQueen sent a variety of them down the runway in fun shades of pink, fuschia, and white. Michael Kors took a darker route with rich red and fierce black, while Fendi worked in earthy browns, tans, and grays. This fun, funky 70s throwback came full circle this fall, with vintage pieces still packing as much of a punch as the new pieces. If you’re not into cotton candy pink or red and black, score one of these lovelies off of Etsy instead.

Jewelry Report: Statement Earrings

In the last few years or so we’ve seen cocktail rings, bib necklaces, loaded, chunky charm bracelets, and thick bangles. Statement jewelry is always hot, and now it’s the earrings’ turn. Be it chandalier or shoulder duster, statement earrings are it It jewelry of summer, and are a fabulous compliment to strapless tops and tank shirts, a nice way to make your wardrobe pop if you just don’t feel like wearing a necklace or loading up your arms with bracelets during the dog days of summer. 🙂
