Uptown Holiday

For most people a holiday stroll consists of walking around the neighborhood and looking at everyone’s Christmas lights. But for me it consists of walking around Central Park West in a Red Vinyl Check Swing Coat reminiscent of Blair Waldorf’s preppy Manhattan style.

Topshop Upper West Side Central Park

I think it’s safe to say that this red coat from Topshop is truly the perfect holiday ensemble. It’s festive, stylish and perfect to put over any holiday dress. It’s also just a great statement coat for the warmer winter months. And yes it really does make you feel like you should be on Gossip Girl.

I paired it with a clutch from Topshop that they don’t seem to have anymore. But their Shimmer Quilted Clutch Bag and Capital Frame Clutch are similar and just as fab. I used CND Vinylux Nail Lacquer Polish in Tartan Punk on my nails to get the holiday red color and Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Moisturizing Lipstick in Red To Wear for festive lips. I also sported my favorite pair of slimming opaque tights Star Power by Spanx.

Guest Post: The Most Talked About Summer Makeup Trends

Fashion blogs, magazines and websites directly influence both our cupboards and wardrobes. So if you’ve already chronicled your favorite outfits and accessories for summer 2015, it’s time to top off your best looks with the hottest summer makeup trends. Here are the top makeup trends to try this summer.

1_Welcome back the Lipstick

1. Welcome Back Lipstick

Nude lips might have been the trend for several seasons, but this summer colorful lips are back. Try out the red hot lipsticks from Burberry Beauty or a smudgy stain from Topshop Unique. Remember, men may come and go, but your favorite shade of lipstick is forever!

2_Embrace the colour Purple

2. Embrace the Color Purple

The color of summer when it comes to highlighting the beauty of your eyes is purple.  Lilac is known not only to improve but also optimize every skin tone. Try a grape shade inspired by Vera Wang’s SS15 runway show. To complement your purple eye makeup, you could sport light purple apparel too. But, I’m sure you don’t want to go on the date with your best eye makeup all alone! If you want to shop for your better half too, click here.

3. The Anti Cat Eye

Eyeliners give you a reason to be late! Black eyeliners never fail to be a part of any season, but for summer, the way to wear them is different. Start applying it from the middle of your eye to its extreme corner, like we saw Prada and Celine do on the runways. For a truly graphic effect, keep the line straight.

4_Glow Bronzing Powder

4. Glow Bronzing Powder

Summer makeup is absolutely incomplete without bronzer. You can try the Glow Bronzing Powder by Dolce & Gabbana that promises a sun-kissed, natural-looking tone. If this does not suit your skin type, you could also check out sun-inspired bronzing powders by Avon.

5_Metallic Nails

5. Metallic Nails

Metallic manicures are so hot this season. Flaunt your flawless summer skin by using metallic nail polishes. Browse through the Dark Stromboli, Silvery Platinum or Golden Desert shades by Dolce & Gabbana! It’s the little things that attract the most attention.

6_Simple Hair-do

6. Simple Hair

The hairstyles for summer are always very simple. To avoid the sweat and uneasiness, most would prefer to tie up their hair. You can decorate your buns with flowers or very simple accessories. If you don’t like to tie your hair back, just a simple middle parting is totally in!

7_Do not hide your freckles

 

7. Don’t Hide Your Freckles

During summer, freckles are one of your greatest blessings and you sure would not want to hide them under concealers. Try Chanel’s Les Beiges Healthy Glow Multi-Color compact that provides warm color to the face, without concealing or mattifying.

They say that the most beautiful makeup for women is their passion, but cosmetics are easier to buy. So, hit refresh on your makeup kit. Happy shopping!

Cocktail Attire

dressy summer oufit OOTD

While I love fancy cocktail parties and getting dressed up to sip champagne at wine bars, I don’t think you need a special occasion to dress up. Dressing up doesn’t have to be expensive either. This look I put together for well under $100 which means I’ll probably spend more on fancy drinks than I did on the outfit.

The dress is from Target, the pumps were a steal from Famous Footwear, the necklace a found on clearance at Nanette Lepore‎ and the clutch is vintage (it was a gift from one of my very best friends). Now that I’ve discovered Elizabeth Arden‘s Beautiful Color Moisturizing Lipstick, I need to start wearing red lipstick more. My favorite shade is “Red to Wear” and I love how the lipstick case looks like Elizabeth Arden’s iconic red door.
