The LBD!

“One is never overdressed or underdressed with a Little Black Dress.” -Karl Lagerfeld

20130929-191611.jpgI love these shoes!!! Not only for the style, but they are surprisingly the single-most comfortable pair of heels in my entire closet! NOT KIDDING. Didn’t even need to break them in. They don’t have a platform, which typically makes a heel less comfortable, but these are pure perfection! I definitely recommend the Guess “Lala” shoe!

Dress up your LBD any way you please, because this classic style is sure to be a hit!!

Getting Your Best Hair Cut!!

I cannot say it enough: The KEYS to a fab hairstyle are healthy hair AND a great haircut!!! A hair cut completely transforms how a person looks.

Some people rock several different lengths, colors and styles, á la Emma Stone or Jessica Biel. Others look fierce with a tried and true hairstyle, with hints of variation every now and then- like Sofia Vergara and Blake Lively!

I am part of the latter group: A consistent style through the years, with hints of changes! Pics of my most recent cut **THANK YOU ISABEL, MY STYLIST**!!!

20130922-103040.jpgI will take be sure to take photos from the front next time.

THINGS TO REMEMBER FOR YOUR NEXT HAIRCUT:

1. Be SPECIFIC about what you want. Don’t be afraid to communicate. Too many people leave it up to the stylist, and are disappointed with the results. They aren’t mind readers!
2. BRING PHOTOS! Give visual examples of what you want! Look below for ideas of who to bring photos of.
3. Ask for a haircut that will look good strait, wavy and/or curled. Most people overlook this detail.
4. If your stylist doesn’t do what you ask for…don’t feel bad about moving on to someone else! Ask your friends for a good referral.

CELEB HAIR EXAMPLES: Google these stars’ hair for pics to show your stylist (example: “Jennifer Aniston hair”).

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick!

It’s definitely a berry lipstick kind of day! I love that it matches the piping on my dance leotard, & it’s such a happy color!

20130918-074727.jpgDETAILS: LIPSTICK: Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Berry Couture// MASCARA: MAC Zoom Lash in black & Covergirl Lashblast Volume in very black waterproof // Not wearing any bottom eye liner & mascara for a fresh, wide-awake look // HAIR: Natural texture, no blowout.

Now about this LIPSTICK!!! I say this with total seriousness: The Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick & Lipgloss are the absolute BEST drug store lipstick & gloss I’ve ever bought! 100%!!!!! The best! I only bought the matching berry colors to try it out, but I will certainly get more in the future.

20130918-082930.jpgThis is just as amazing as high end designer lipsticks. I almost never like drug store lipstick as much as the “expensive stuff.” In fact, this lipstick makes me NOT like any of my other drug store lipsticks anymore, because it’s SO GOOD! Soft, truly lustrous almost like a gloss, brilliant color, goes on smooth & lasts a long time. The gloss is soft, not sticky, & very shiny. I love it!!!!!! Definitely get some for yourself in the color of your choice.

Weekend Casual

My casual outfit on Sunday while running errands. Why do I post so many “errands” outfits? Because most of us don’t spend their Sundays on red carpets, and doing press interviews! We all need cute, accessible outfits on the regular.

20130910-072013.jpgABOVE: TANK: Victoria’s Secret PINK // SKIRT: Abercrombie & Fitch // JEWELRY: Tiffany & Co. // GLASSES: Salt. Optics.

If you wear a detailed or patterned skirt, like my lace one, keep the top ultra simple! Otherwise the outfit looks overwhelming instead of easy-breezy. This black tank is the right balance for this style.

20130910-072341.jpgI like this ensemble because its comfortable, and can go from errands, to hanging with friends, to a family BBQ. Having multi-purpose pieces in your closet is key to building a functional wardrobe. What are some of your favorite casual pieces?

SUPER Fun LBD!

20130906-202431.jpgI absolutely love this LBD! Such a fun fit-and-flare cut. I styled it with a voluminous pony tail and fabulous statement necklace, for a polished look.

A lot of people asked where my dress was from, and I almost didn’t want to tell them! It was such a steal from TARGET! I should have gotten two of them because it was so inexpensive. Necklace is from Forever 21 ($9.00).

You could style this dress a million different ways- casual, dressy, you name it! It’s an amazing closet staple!
