Hello, Yellow...

My latest gift is from NARS. It is hard to challenge the quality and creations from this luxury makeup brand that I've trusted for years. It's a creamy shadow in a color that makes your eyes fly. Like a bird, you'll be. As striking as it seems, subtlety is key to brightening your face with this pencil.
Tip: Use your finger to gently spread color across the lid.

A Brief Style Statement on Black and Blue

There has long been the theory that black and blue should not be worn together. Too colors that are so closely linked and related have been forbidden to commingle in the fashion world. Today I make a stand in Hudson Jeans and Mi Piaci boots: black and blue belong together.

The Skull Is Stirring

This is a follow up to my previous post. I thought hand crafted cups for tea couldn't get any better until I received this belated birthday gift. A sugar stirring skull. A girl can never own too many skulls. Part of gift giving is knowing the recipients tastes and my friend was right on the mark here. Skulls rule.

Shopping Find of a Friend: Crafted Cups

Truth be told, it's tiny tea cups like these that make my life bearable. I enjoy green tea on a daily basis. It's my coffee and perhaps a bit of my religion. It's relaxing, nutritious and nice. To add to the enjoyment and benefits of drinkng green tea, it is best served in crafted cups. These are the beautiful find of a clothing designer friend who appreciates the esthetics in most things. These included. I wish they were mine. No secret and I get served organic green tea from Asia each time I have the pleasure of visiting. What a refreshing find. Go vintage. It makes life a bit more delicious.

Pieces of Me: Lady in Lace

With this post, we are encouraging you to #getdressedup. It doesn't have to be all of the time but sometimes, if not most of the time, is good. I don't mean fancy duds but just a bit of effort. Good wash and a groom and take a bit of time to choose something smart to wear. Aren't you smart? Then wear smart clothes. It shows you love yourself. You know what they say: If you can't love yourself, then you can't love anybody.

First Days of Fall Arm Party

Does that make it a farm party? It'd have to be a pretty fancy farm. 
Happy Fall, fashion lovers.
