  • Little Black Dress Halloween Costumes for a Witchin' Good Look!

    Halloween is so close, and we're getting excited to dress up as our favorite characters on the 31st! It's always difficult to choose and put together your costume, but there's one great way to look super chic for Halloween: little black dresses!

    Rock an LBD for a Fangtastic Halloween Style! Little black dresses are so versatile, and always chic, so we love the idea of pairing an LBD with your favorite Halloween accessories for a glamorously ghoulish look. Two dresses that we particularly love are shown above: Night Moves style 6658 and Jeweled Pencil Dress style 78415.

    Fangtastic Vampire Style

    We love Night Moves 6685 to rock a sexy glam rock vampire look. Sexy and sophisticated, this dress features a sheer illusion sleeve detail accented with crystals. The long sleeves makes it perfect for a cold fall Halloween night, and allows it to easily transition into winter for a Holiday Party dress (we especially love this look for New Year's Eve)! For Halloween, just pair it with vampire teeth, dark red lipstick, dark red or purple eyes, and glamorous red jewelry. We also love the idea of pairing it with a leather jacket to complete that glam rock look.

    In the above outfit, we paired the LBD with Helen's Heart style JE-4601-10 red earrings, Rihanna by Night Moves platform high heels, and Magid E7496 beads and rhinestones satin box clutch. All items that you can easily rock again for Homecoming, Prom, or the Holidays!

    Witchin LBD Look

    Jeweled Pencil Dress style 78415 is perfect to rock a witch look for Halloween! This jeweled neck dress features body defining style lines, open sides, and an invisible back zipper. For Halloween, pair it with a chic witch hat, a witch's broom, and funky jewelry. for an extra witchy look, pair it with striped stockings - we love either orange and black or purple and black striped stockings for that classic witch look.

    To finish off this look, we paired the dress with Magid E7486 jeweled box clutch, Hyacinth Crystal Chandelier Earrings JF103E32G3, and Baylee by Sizzle sexy beaded pumps.

    Of course, a little black dress is so easy to dress up in any way, so whether a classic Halloween look like a vampire or a witch that we showed above...or something a little less scary like a 1920s flapper girl or cute black cat...you'll be able to rock a totally haute Halloween look, and then take that dress right into the Holidays and New Year!

A fun and flirty, yet totally elegant, look that you can't go wrong with!

  • 2014 Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week Beauty Trends!

    The beauty trends for Haute Couture Fashion week are anything but average. In fact, the typical adjectives used to capture the art displayed by various designers and artists include wild, eclectic, and whimsical. However non-realistic and daring these hair and makeup looks may be, they always seem to have an underlying layer of prettiness drawing us to them and tempting us to give them a try on our own mini runways in everyday life. Here are a few of the 2014 Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week beauty trends we enjoyed the most and would be willing to try for Fall and Homecoming 2014.

    Chanel Haute Couture 2014

    2014 Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week Beauty Trends-Chanel Haute CoutureEach model rocked a sequin cap with a feathered, extremely piece-y up-do. We love this rocker goes glam inspired look complete with metallic winged eyeliner. The silver and gold glow on the eyes reminds of Winter and the holidays!

    Atelier Versace Haute Couture 2014

    Atelier Versace Haute Couture 2014-Paris Haute Couture Beauty TrendsMove over barely there eye makeup. It looks like Atelier Versace went all out with an all over eye color and gave new meaning to winged eyes. Instead of a winged tip, these models had fully winged eyelids in teal for a sultry dramatic effect, which was balanced with nude lips and high slick backed top knots! This look has 70's disco party all over it and we are ready to put on a jumper and dance.

    On Aura Tout Vu Haute Couture 2014

    On Aura Tout Vu Haute Couture- 2014 Paris Haute Couture Beauty TrendsThe models for this show walked in an ethereal water wonderland with violet shadowed, sunken eyes, also lined in metallic silvers giving an icy winter presence. The tight pin curls on the models have a wet look, which ties in with the entire Haute Couture collection being inspired by water. We can certainly get "aboard" with this look for the Fall and Winter months ahead.

    Christian Dior Haute Couture Fall 2014

    2014 Paris Haute Couture Beauty Trends-Christian Dior Haute Couture Fall 2014We thought adhesive eyelashes were a miracle, but we didn't know what was coming next. Makeup artists for the Christian Dior Haute Couture show kept the trending curve going with metallic eyes, only with the exception of using silver adhesive liners instead. We would give these "Velvet Eyes" adhesive liners a go for their perfect shapes, bold colors, and long wear appeal.

    After reviewing our favorite beauty trends of 2014's Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week, we feel less disappointed knowing Summer will eventually come to an end. Knowing we will have exciting makeup, hair, and fashion trends to look forward to certainly puts our minds at ease!

    Which of the above trends did you like or dislike? Are there any you would be willing to try for the 2014 Fall and Homecoming season?

  • Fashion Friday: Jumpsuits for Women

    There were a multitude of trends to hit us the Summer 2014 season, from bold Brazilian hues to feminine shapes and geometric prints. However, there was one trend that seemed manifest in every category from casual wear to more formal and daytime to night...the jumpsuit. The jumpsuit or romper (short version) has transitioned into fashion's biggest staple right before our eyes as it is so versatile, easy to wear, and the most trendy item in your closet right now. For this Fashion Friday: The Jumpsuit, we recognize this one piece wonder as fashion's biggest asset this Summer and into the Fall 2014 season.

    We love jumpers and rompers because they can be worn anywhere and you can do just about anything in one depending on the style. If you get a comfortable style for lounging, you can wear it around the house, to the beach or shopping. Put a jacket on, add some accessories, and you have a casual nighttime outfit.  If you have a special occasion or a more formal event to go to, opt for an embellished design like Shail K style 3494. Black, with sequin detail, a v-neckline, and a stunning silver beaded waist, this outfit is glamorous but not over the top. Perfect with a classic black heel, this jumpsuit is the modern spin on the perfect black dress.

    Shail K 3494 Black Sequin Jumpsuit

    Maybe you have a weekend brunch,  birthday dinner, or a date with a special someone and you want to look fabulous, but you are sick of wearing dresses. Put on a jumper that sparkles like Shail K style 3495 in blush. The bold sequins balance the neutral color and allow the piece to be easily accessorized with some silver or platinum colored heels and jewelry! This jumper displays modern fun and classic elegance in one great outfit that can be worn time and time again. Each compliment you receive will be another reason to wear this dynamic ensemble!

     Jumpsuit Shail K. 3495 Blush Jumpsuit

    We love jumpsuits for women, and the trend has steadily grown over the last few years, even mading its way to the top of most celebrities and stylists "must have" lists. We are totally loving this craze and embrace it for Summer, Homecoming, and Fall 2014. How do you feel about this fashion forward trend? Share how you wear yours with us!

    Playful Two Pieces

    Homecoming dresses are an entirely different look when comparing them to prom. They are generally a little less formal, although some schools make it a very fancy occasion. Typically, homecoming is a gathering of students uniting as one, celebrating the beginning of a new school year and showing their school spirit in hopes of leading their team to victory. Prom is more of a coming of age pastime and memorable occasion. Of course, no homecoming game is complete without a celebratory after-party! Sherri Hill's fall line is full of two-piece dresses that are fun, yet elegant enough to be worn as formal attire. Adorned with beautiful lace and various beads, these two pieces are an on going fashion hit!

  • 5 Tips to Make Your Lipstick Last in the Fall & Winter!

    A new season means new lipstick colors! This fall, the lipstick shade we are obsessing over is plum. According to Cosmopolitan, plum lipstick is the number one sexiest piece of fall make-up.

    1490-shay-mitchell-s-funky-fall-look-0x375-2"Spiked with a dash of burgundy and a hit of black, plum lipstick becomes, 'sophisticated in a twisted kind of way,'" says makeup artist Tom Pecheux.

    Date-Makeup-Idea-Dark-Plum-Lips-0-megan-foxWe couldn't agree more with Tom! We are definitely taking advantage of the fall weather and squeezing in all the different shades of plum lipstick that we can get our hands on! But, with winter right around the corner, don't worry because this is a shade that can be worn right through the cold weather, too.

    The only thing we can't help but hate is when our lipstick wares off! Having to re-apply lipstick many times throughout the day is exhausting and wastes the product; which is why we want to share 5 tips to make your lipstick last, an article based off of Seventeen Magazine. With winter officially just around the corner and chapped lips on their way, these tips couldn't be more important.

    a-lips-getty-creative1. Exfoliate. Scrub your lips with the rest of your face while you're in the shower in the morning. A gentle exfoliator will smooth over the flakes that come with winter's chapped lips.

    2. Moisturize. With the temperatures dropping faster than you can say "pumpkin spice latté," moisturizing everything, including your lips is key. Stock up on a long-lasting chapstick to keep your pucker from getting chapped and use it before applying lipstick to help it go on smoothly.

    3. Prime & Line. Use an easy-to-apply lip primer to set the stage for the bold color. Once it's absorbed, outline you lips in a liner that's the same shade of your natural lip color.

    4. Add Your Color. Apply the lipstick of choice in two swipes.  Blot a couple times on a tissue and repeat with another swipe of lipstick, followed by another blot. Do this until you score your desired color strength.

    5. Set with Powder. You heard us, powder—on your lips. A light, translucent powder will help keep the color in place even after you enjoy a huge mug of hot chocolate!

    Once you follow these short steps, you will be ready to rock your plum lipstick (or any other color lipstick) all day long!
