HArper’s BAzaar HOLiday LOve

I was lucky enough to be included in Harper’s Bazaar Gift Guide roundup and thought I would share it with you guys as well. We were asked not what we would like to give to our love ones, but we wanted to receive, which actually turned out to be a much more difficult question to answer. Here is what I put down, but make sure to check out what all the other fabulous bloggers had to say as well here.

1. Unearthen ‘Titanium Quartz’ necklace, starting at $460, seeunearthen.com

Titanium Quatz is said to increase focus– which is something I could definitely use during the cold winter months– and, (as I’ve mentioned here) I’m obsessed with the cool bullet-shell setting.

2. Elizabeth and James, Rabbit-trimmed stretch-jersey blazer, $765, net-a-porter.com

Words do not describe how much I love this coat—it’s luxe-military vibe makes it the perfect piece for this season and many more to come.

3. YSL iPad case, $795, call 212-980-2970 for details

As an Apple-anything enthusiast and YSL devotee, I’ve been lusting over this timeless case since it came out. If only I had an ipad to fill it.

4. Deborah Lippmann ‘Across the Universe’ Nail Polish, lippmanncollection.com

I could make do with the entire Deborah Lippman’s glitter collection, but I particularly love the cool jewel tone of this limited-edition color.

5. Ray Ban Sonnenbrillen 3029 Outdoorsman II, $190, sunglasshut.com

A California girl at heart, I’m never without my sunnies. I like that these manage to be simultaneously hip, classic, and give a little nod to Top Gun.

6. Thin Man DVD box set, $42, oldies.com

There’s nothing better than a Thin Man mystery marathon on a rainy day, and I never cease to get inspiration from style icon Myrna Loy.


GOlden LIps

{My first beauty video blog. Please excuse the “ums”}

My obsession with the Rodarte show is on whole new level. Especially the gold lips and whimsical 50’s hair. I used Laura Mercier’s gold mineral powder to create a wearable version along with Bobby Brown’s foundation stick and Covergirl clear lipgloss. I sported it to my first salsa lesson with Leigh and I have to say, it went really well with my Dirty Dancing inspired outfit.

Have a great weekend everyone, blinged out lips and all.
