Pantone’s Color of the Year: Perfect for Fashion & Beauty, Bodily Fluids Aside
Pantone Institute of Color has introduced the 2015 Color of the Year, christening it Marsala and vaguely reminding us of things more sinister than wine (which, coupled with a giant pasta dish, is exactly what I wanted upon reading the name). But then I saw it. Maybe it was because I first heard of it […]
The Lady is a Vamp
Halloween is the season of creepy-chic—that strange albeit enviable intersection between sinister and glamourous. Nothing so deftly combines old Hollywood beauty with eerie allure like dark lipstick—we’re talking rich, robust hues a la merlot, cabernet, and other wino-inspired shades that conjure images of vampires, witches, and ghouls with berry- (or blood?-) stained lips.

Etsy Spotlight: How Many Cosmetic Bags is Too Many Cosmetic Bags?
Pamela Barsky Shop on Etsy makes me seriously ask myself that question. Also: how much money is too much money to spend on lots of cosmetic bags? Why am I so taken with cosmetic bags?

Donning baby blue will make you feel as if you’re wearing a cloud–or attending an anti-climactic […]
Uniquely You: LBDs, Personal Style, and Midnight in Paris
Maybe it’s the approach of summer and ridiculously high temps, but recently I’ve found myself being drawn to the effortless appeal of dresses. I’ve always been one for simplicity. I like throwing on a dress and adding just a few of my own subtle details. Though my personality may reflect otherwise, I can’t help but […]
I’m Loving: Orange Details (And Neon Lips!)
The coral trend of seasons past has gone one step further, entering orangey-red (OK, sometimes all-out orange) territory. This was evident in the neon lips that were all over the runways at New York Fashion Week. And I love it. I have pale skin, and bright colors can sometimes wash me out. But the orange-red […]
