Never Grow Up with PLOOSH Animal Purses

PLOOSH animal purses

On the first day of New York Fashion Week, I sat next to two girls at the Meskita show carrying the cutest hippo purses. They turned out to be Sasha Iastremska and Yuriy Zubarev, the founders of the PLOOSH Luxury Toy Collection – a line of fab adult animal purses for risk-taking fashionistas who refuse to grow up. When you were a kid, you never left home without your favorite stuffed animal. Now, PLOOSH purses can bring you the same joy and comfort that your favorite teddy bear gave you so long ago.

The collection centered around giving adults the opportunity to relive their childhoods while exploring their fun, free-spirited personal style, first came onto the accessories scene during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim in Miami in 2013. Each line features various versions of handcrafted, enchanting and sophisticated hippo and elephant handbags.

PLOOSH purses are are made solely with genuine leather imported from Italy and decorated with Swarovski crystals. Each handbag is one-of-a-kind. The PLOOSH DownTowN collection released in 2014 offers edgier, more accessible animal purses made with relaxed fabrics and faux leathers. The collections are sold at luxury retailers such as Henri Bendel along with boutiques and e-boutiques throughout the United States.

As a child at heart, I love the notion of playful luxury. But, what I love most about these adorably chic purses is that they are total conversation starters. I want one so bad!

New Dove Body Wash One Shower Challenge

New Dove Body Wash One Shower Challenge

No matter what your style, the first step toward any amazing look is soft silky skin. That being said, I’ve long been a fan of Dove and their many beauty breakthroughs. Ever since I discovered Dove Body Wash as a kid, I’ve loved how their body washes, shampoos and body lotions add moisture to skin without making it greasy. It’s always been my favorite body wash to use after a long day at the beach or the pool because of the way it renews my skin’s moisture after sitting in the sun.

Since every great beauty routine starts in the shower, Dove recently unveiled the One Shower Challenge at the Emmys in celebration of the latest developments in their body wash. No longer do women have to choose between a body wash that’s gentle on skin and a great lather. The new Dove Body Wash has broken this cycle providing women with both the mild cleansing their skin needs and a rich, luxurious lather.  The new Dove Body Washes feature an advanced formula that combines the brand’s mildest cleansers with NutriumMoisture® technology, offering 10 times more nourishment.

Speaking from experience, results really can be seen after just one shower. Aside from feeling the weightless moisture, I noticed a huge difference while shaving my legs. The rich lather gave me a closer, smoother shave and newly moisturized skin. The new formula is available in Dove Deep Moisture Body Wash, Dove Sensitive Skin Body Wash and Dove Gentle Exfoliating Body Wash as well as in the entire Dove Go Fresh and Dove Purely Pampering Body Wash collections.

First Date Outfit Featuring VienneMilano Thigh Highs

First Date Outfit

While we usually think of thigh highs as an accessory for your wedding night or at least a serious relationship, I set out to put a new spin on them when styling a first date outfit. Since I’m happily cohabitating with my boyfriend of almost two years, it’s been a while since I’ve been single. However, I still like to think I know a thing or two about how to dress on a first date.

Going out with someone new is always exciting. So what woman doesn’t want to feel elegant, playful and sexy? No matter what you’re wearing, thigh highs do just that. As the first luxury hosiery brand and online boutique dedicated exclusively to thigh high stockings, you can’t go wrong with VienneMilano.

Though I completely support wearing bright colors on a first date, I think there’s something to be said about wearing black or basic colors in that they allow the person to see you rather than just your outfit. So if you’re going out for a fancy dinner or a cocktail party, this is a great choice.

Eyes Redefined with Chanel Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quads and InStyle Magazine

Chanel Les 4 Ombres

Just in time for the September runway shows across New York, London, Paris and Milan, Chanel released a new collection of Les 4 Ombres eyeshadow quads inspired by their iconic tweeds. In order to celebrate these amazing shades in way only fitting of Chanel, I set off to the makeup counter at the 59th St. Bloomingdale’s to style my eyes with InStyle Beauty Director, Kahlana Barfield and Chanel National Makeup Artists (NMAs) John Fussell and Sterling Williams.

Using the Les 4 Ombres Quadra in Tissé Vénitien, Chanel Ebene Eyeliner and Le Volume de Chanel Noir Mascara,  the incredibly talented Chanel makeup artist Reanna Godfrey (ask for her at Bloomingdale’s), transformed my eyes into the ultimate smokey eye look. The green hues in the Tissé Vénitien quad, put a nautical spin on the traditional smokey eye. I even mentioned feeling like a mermaid at one point. When the look was complete, Chanel National Makeup Artist John Fussell pointed out that the colors in the palette matched the vibrants blues and greens in my eyes perfectly. So in a magical way, it was almost like they never closed even when I blinked.

As a blue eyed girl, I’m always looking for new ways to bring out my unique eye color and nothing beats Chanel’s beautifuly long-lasting shades. While the must-have Le Volume de Chanel Mascara made my lashes thicker than ever, Chanel Les 4 Ombres quads give you endless options to blend the hues together for an array of stunning looks.

A Visit to the Kendra Scott Showroom

Kendra Scott Jewelry

During New York Fashion Week, I was invited to Kendra Scott’s showroom to see her signature, fall and winter collections. I was fascinated to learn that Kendra Scott first launched her jewelry line in 2002 with just $500. Today, the Austin-based designer known for her customizable pieces is selling off the shelves at premiere retailers such as Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Bloomingdale’s and over 600 specialty boutiques. She also has 17 stores of her own across the south.

Throughout the evolution of her design, her pieces have become smaller and more stackable – allowing you to wear many at once. I was quite taken by her winter starstruck collection inspired by celestial glamour and constellations. It will make the perfect addition to any holiday dress.
