Red Lips and a Little Edge…

I love experimenting with style. One moment I’ll be popping a collar on my blouse, and the next I’ll be sporting a leather skirt with studs. There really are endless possibilities. My favorite look right now would have to be the all black look. My wonderful friend Easton and I share this love of a simple, yet classic color that makes everyone look good. There’s just something about wearing gorgeous black pieces with a pop of color simply on your lips that makes any girl look glamorous, and as though they shouldn’t be messed with!

I am wearing my favorite high waisted black trousers. These are perfect for work or going out with the girls. They have an elastic waist, which can be tightened with a drawstring and have zipper pockets on the side. I paired these with my favorite Astr top. It is short sleeve with a beautiful jeweled neckline. You don’t even have to worry about jewelry with this one! It also buttons up the back, which adds a classic touch to the modern piece. I layered on my leather jacket over to keep warm and threw on some adorable leather flats. To finish it off, I put on some classy ruby red lipstick, and a pair of aviators.

This is the look to have right now!Black on black is the easiest way to achieve perfection without have to match patterns and colors. The top is especially my favorite because of the jeweled neckline. It adds a touch of glamour to the entire look without having to layer pieces of jewelry.

Try the look! You’ll be surprised at how one color can change everything!

A Christmas Filled with Style!

Christmas is practically a day away, which means it is time to start picking out an outfit. Every year, people always tell me they are tired of their classic sweater and leggings/jean ensemble and want something a little bit different. Christmas shouldn’t be a time where you dress boring; you should have fun and experiment with a look that you’ve always wanted to try!

My Christmas look consists of some head turning pieces that will surely make you best dressed at your holiday occasion. I am wearing a mini, leather “skater” skirt with stud detailing at the waist. I paired it with a classic sheer, black blouse with lace shoulder detailing and a bow that you can tie in the front! My shoes are simple, patent leather black pumps. To finish the look, I wore a jeweled bracelet, pearl studs, and put on some plum lipstick to add a pop of color!

Although this look might be not casual enough, you can always dress it down or change the pieces to your liking! This is your look! Make it what you want and own it! I love all black, especially for the winter season! It not only slims you, but is so easy to change up from day to day!

So whatever your outfit may be this holiday season, I wish everyone a happy, healthy holiday filled with family and friends!

Kiss Me: Plum Edition

With winter creeping up on us, my entire wardrobe and beauty products took a drastic turn, including my lip color. I have never been a fan of bold, “in your face” lips, but then I felt the urge to experiment. Being obsessed with burgundy hues and plums, I took a leap and made a major purchase at Sephora. The color known as “crush” by the Sephora brand has graced my lips on many occasions from my Thanksgiving feast to a simple date. This is the one color that compliments my fair skin tone and chocolate locks! Obviously, the shade depends on the tone and complexion of your skin tone, but why not take the leap. This color looks nearly good on everyone, and even if it is not plum, experiment with a little color. You’d be surprised how it can change up your outfit from drab to fab! The color is usually found in every brand, from drug stores to your department store counters. So why not take the leap? Experiment! That’s what makeup is for! You’d be surprised how a little lipstick can go miles when it comes to your confidence! Stand out, be bold, and show a little color! What do you have to lose?

Remember, stay confident, beautiful, intelligent, positive, love always, and live everyday to its fullest!
