Silken Cord

Silken Cord

Today’s nail polish, again from Essie’s winter collection, is Silken Cord. What I liked about this polish is that I was able to achieve the color I wanted with just one coat. Essie nail polish’s are usually sheer and require 2 to 3 coats to reach the color of the bottle so I was surprised to see that I only needed one coat.

Essie Winter Collection: Hot Coco

Hot Coco 3

Essie’s newsest collection for winter includes six shades that will perfectly fit your mood this winter. I purchased 4 out of the 6 in the “mini set.” I figure that since I rarely run out of nail polish, I don’t need to buy the full sized bottles. This first color is “Hot Coco.” Throughout the next few days I will share the other three colors …

Fall’s “It” Color

fall

Every season fashion magazines expose us to the new “it” color and more often than not, this must-have shade is available in Chanel’s latest nail color. Those over at Chanel have even realized the influence of their nail polish and have incorporated it into their advertising at make-up counters. I must admit that I don’t normally focus on a specific color each season but this …

Is Vintage Right For You?

My Grandma's Dress

In the past, I have never really seen my style as one that can pull off vintage pieces. I love the look on other people, but I felt like I never found pieces that were “me”. My whole perspective changed however when my grandma gave me a dress she had custom made from 1953. The second I put it on I felt like I was …

Tired of wearing the same outfit over and over again? Trust me, I’ve been there. It doesn’t mean you have to go out and buy a brand new outfit; all you have to do is accessorize! Although I love buying print and patterned clothing, I also like having plain tees because it’s easy to mix and match different outfits. Creativity and balance is key to putting …

Can’t Decide between Leggings and Jeans? Try Jeggings!

jeggings

As basic as jeans can be, each year there seems to be a new way to reinvent this American classic. This year, denim leggings (or as some like to call jeggings) caught my eye. There are two ways I like to classify jeggings: “denim based” and “legging based.” While they are the same for the most part, they can create completely different looks. J. Crew’s …
