Spring 2014 Trends

It’s finally spring! For most of us anyways (We’re looking at you, dear readers in Canada). Spring is the time to embrace the most lady like frivolities. Skater skirts, fun vibrant patterns, killer orange lipsticks are all a part of fashions most colorful season. As everything thaws out, our spirits are lifted and what better way of showing that than by ditching the see of black and grey we stuck to for the last 5 months?

Pastel Colors
A trend we’ve seen almost on every Spring/Summer 14 runway: pretty pastels in mint green, lavender and blush pink.

Black and White Fashion Story

DSC_1027 copy

Here’s a fun fall look for all of you up north. I love wearing a fun girly dress and giving it some edge with a man’s leather jacket and some combat boots.

I kept the makeup pretty simple because I felt it would be too hard for a day outing to rock red lips (even though nothing makes me feel more confident than a red pout)

The Dress is from Maggy London

Leather Jacket from Topman (It’s a man’s leather jacket btw… shhh)

Boots from Browns

Back to school beauty

So school is back on, and whether you’re excited about it or completely devastated that summer is over, we can all agree that with fall approaching, it’s time to change our beauty routine.

For this fresh back to school look, I primed my face with Bare Minerals “Prime Time” in order to have a smooth canvas to work on. I then used Guerlain’s “Parure de lumière” foundation under my eyes, on the sides on my nose and for spot hiding. I’m not a big fan of using heavy foundation during the day (If it’s not broken don’t fix it right?).

I then filled in my brows with Anastasia’s “Perfect Brow Pencil”, and proceeded to create a slight cat eye with l’Oréal’s “Supreme slim” liquid liner. I used Physicians Formula blush, and Benefit’s “High Beam” for a natural glow along my cheeks, nose bridge and cupid’s bow.

To finish off the look, I wore my favorite YSL’s “Vernis a lèvre” (seriously this stays on forever and looks divine).

50 Shades of Grey: From Book to Runway

Inspired by Helmut Newton’s photo, designer Jason Wu showed his SS 2013 Collection reflecting the theme ‘Naughty or Nice’ with a big mirror at the top of the runway .

Jason Wu had his models in tight leather dresses, bustier tops, leather skirts embroidered with lace, and covered some faces with netted veils. To top it all, the models had a very flat make-up with bright BOLD lips balanced with BOLD eyebrows..

Streets and stores in NYC have been crowded with shoppers, designers, models and bloggers for last night’s FNO. Started by Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour in 2009, FNO is now spread in 19 countries but New York City remains the place to be.
