Spring 2012 Fashion Week Beauty Trends with Valentino and Donna Karan
Are you a dark and sultry or light and sweet kind of chick? Those were the beauty trends presented to us during the Spring 2012 fashion shows at Valentino and Donna Karan. At Donna Karan, we saw a deep, intense lip that also had an ombre effect. The lips were almost stained looking and popped out against a minimal face. Brows were also strong, and bigger, framing the model's eyes. As for...
Yay or Nay: Angelina Jolie's Red Carpet Style
When I first saw this dress, I kept flip flopping back and forth on whether or not I liked it. When I looked at the dress on it's own, I couldn't help but be underwhelmed and a bit confused. I mean, why the flower? And why so big?
However, when I looked at the dress in it's entirety, with Angelina, I kind of dug the sophisticated and soft lines of the flower, mixed with a modern...

Yay or Nay?: Olsen Twins Red Carpet Style
It's a double whammy this Yay or Nay as we're looking at the Olsen twins! Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen attended the New York Film Festival for their sister Elizabeth's film Martha Marcy May Marlene which was showing there. I'm a big Olsen style fan for the most part, I've always found that they are ahead of the style curve and they have fabulous taste as evidenced...
We Love Fridays: Nicholas Kirkwood Spring 2012 Heels
I couldn't choose just one pair of shoes for this 'We Love Fridays' because Nicholas Kirkwood
released images of his Spring 2012 shoes
and they were all just gorgeous so I choose four instead (let's just say I'm a bit indecisive sometimes)!
The four shoes all have something different to offer but they all have one thing in common- springtime! The colours...
We Love Fridays...The Row Leopard Print CoatSo clearly, you should know by now how obsessed I am with leopard prints. I love that it can go either way- sophisticated and grown up or sexy and sultry with a bit of edge! Leopard prints are always feminine but pack a punch full of attitude which is why this friday, I'm loving The Row's Cheple Leopard Print Coat.
If you aren't familiar with The Row, you will be familiar with the...
We Love Fridays: Lanvin Embellished Pumps
If there is one thing that last week's We Love Fridays
post taught us, it's that glitter is awesome. Pure and simple. I appreciate glitter in all forms, whether it be in an all over sequinned way or even as just a little sparkly accessory. Instead of doing a statement piece in glitter, sometimes it is best to tone it down and play it classy. That's what we are doing with...
We're Obsessed With... Rodarte Spring 2012 Collection

, blogger Tavi, Beyonce, Chloe Sevigny and Taylor Swift
, their styles are a red carpet staple.
During New York Fashion Week, Rodarte showed their Spring 2012 collection and I feel head...
New York Fashion Week: Would you wear this?
As I live vicariously through blogs during New York Fashion Week
, I have fallen in love with almost everything! For the most part, the collections are gorgeous- everything seems to flow and glide down the runway and all I want to do is find the nearest bank so I can rob it as to fund my shopping spree. However, you can't please everyone all the time! Here are some of controversial,...
Yay or Nay? Taylor Swift's NYFW Style at Rodarte
Taylor Swift attended Rodarte's Spring 2012 collection show at New York Fashion Week and she was in good company - also in attendance were Elle and Dakota Fanning
and Beyonce and Solange Knowles.
Taylor may have snagged the best parking spot however, seated next to Vogue editor, Anna Wintour. Swift wore a long-sleeved lace and crochet midi dress from Rodarte's Fall 2011 collection.
