Prabal Gurung - Runway - Fall 2013 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week

The looks that rip the runway during New York Fashion Week always predict the upcoming trends. This year fashion week seemed to channel the 70’s in every way possible. From wide-leg pants, fringe, poncho inspired looks, and mini dresses. Some of my favorite trends on the runway were fur scarves and jackets, asymmetrical hems, daring splits and leather.

Check out these Fall/Winter 2015 trends and get ready to revamp your fall wardrobe!

The Best Red for Valentine’s Day!

It’s Valentine’s Day and no matter what you have planned its always great to have a fun festive mani.

I’m not a big fan of my nails in pink for some reason, so red usually is my go to color.

Here are a few of my favorite red’s ♥ !

The Spy Who Loved Me by OPI

This is an oldie but goodie. This bright red is from the 2012 Skyfall Collection, but it is still one of my favorite red’s. It is very opaque so you can really get away with one coat. So… it’s the perfect color when you need to cut down drying time and run!

Christian Louboutin – Rouge Louboutin

This highly publicized polish really lives up to the hype. It covers well, and I really like the consistency of this polish. Besides the fact that the long stilletto handle makes it a little awkward to apply, it is def one of my newest faves!

IMG_3988 rouge-louboutin-opener

Mystical Mystique by Color Club is a nice deep red and was the inspiration for this Valentines Day theme manicure by Cassandra. (On Wednesday’s, We Wear Polish)

The colors used for this manicure are:

Red – Mystical Mystique by Color Club (Special Edition Color)

Black – Black Swift 23 by Milani

Glitter – Sky Diamond by Hit Polish

White – WHITE by Milani

My thumb, middle, and pinky finger were achieved by marbling colors with a makeup sponge over a white base. And the nail art was achieved by stamping with Moyou London plates.

GRAMMYS 2015 BEST DRESSED PICKS!

Last night was one of the biggest fashion nights in music! So, you know I have to give you my best dressed picks! Fashion’s top trends were all over the red carpet; sheer gowns, cut out details, fringe, metallics and WHITE.

I must say, I was kind of underwhelmed by  the outfits last night.  The GRAMMY’S is a night where you push the envelope and rock something eye catching, and the ladies I picked definitely did that in my eyes. But, I felt that WOW factor was kind of lacking from the red carpet last night.

TAYLOR SWIFT in Elie Saab

I love everything about this look. This ombre teal/ blue dress looks amazing on her skin tone. The long and mini aspect of the dress keeps it fun and flirty. And then she brings it all together with a pop of color with her magenta heels. I just love how this look is so youthful.

Taylor is definitely my best dressed pick from last night!

Nicki Minaj in Tom Ford

Let’s just be honest here, Nicki Minaj slaaaaayyyyed in this plunge neck, sequined fringe gown. I love seeing Nicki being normal for a change. Her natural makeup and simple hair just let’s her KILLER body and beauty speak for itself. She just looks FABULOUS!

And when I say “normal” remember Nicki Minaj just last year at the Grammy’s?!

Who knew there was so much natural beauty under all that fabric, makeup and hair!?

Kat Graham in Yanina Couture

This dress is chic, sexy and so on trend. Everyone had on a sheer type of dress but I just love the white petal details on this couture gown.  I also love how she paired this dress with natural makeup and simple hair. Just the look head to toe is so glam. LOVE IT!

Gwen Stefani in Atelier Versace

Gwen is a style icon and she rocked the red carpet in this custom Versace jumpsuit.  You don’t always need a gown to look glamorous and Gwen definitely shows us that in this outfit. The half nude bodice area with web detailed added a bit of flair to this simple jumpsuit.  Gwen can do no wrong in my eyes, she looked effortlessly glam!

Ciara in Alexandre Vautheir

For the record , I think people sleep on Ciara, she is always dressed to perfection and last night she brought her A game. Ciara brings the drama in this one-shoulder ruffled black number. Like I said if you aren’t giving people that WOW factor, then your arent dressed for the GRAMMYS, and Ciara turned heads. Her simple swept back hair style complimented this over the top ruffled dress. And some how she still was able to show off her svelte figure by adding a belt and showing off those amazing legs.

Rihanna in Giambattista Valli

Rihanna is always known for going OFF on the red carpet. Whether she is completely nude leaving little to the imagination or wearing this cupcake pink gown; Rihanna is fearless and not afraid to take risks.  This wouldn’t be an outfit I would personally wear, but I understand the drama and why she would rock this on the red carpet. Eyes were glued to her when she made her fashionably late appearance to the GRAMMYS. It was a perfect choice to keep her hair back and simple; since this dress is speaking for itself! Rihanna always does her own thing, and I think that is why everyone loves her. She killed the red carpet in a pink princess dress. Who else can do that?!

4 Outfit Ideas for Valentine’s Day!

Hey loves!

I am so sorry I have been MIA the past couple of weeks. I have been planning my wedding like crazy. ( LESS THEN 3 MONTHS AWAY!! AHHHHH!!) Who knew there were sooooo many teeny details that you just don’t think of until the last minute?!!?!

I seriously can’t believe Valentine’s Day is already next week, and if your like me it kind of snuck up on you. So, what are we going to wear!?!? Whether you are going out on a romantic date, staying in, going out to the club or hanging out with girl friends you want to make sure you have a cute outfit for Valentine’s Day.

Check out my 4 outfit picks for Valentine’s Day no matter what you have planned!

casual

Red skinny jeans make this casual outfit pop. I love red , and nothing looks more chic then red, black and white. Pair red skinny jeans with a cropped sweater and a chunky heeled boot and your good to go. Accessorize with simple jewelry and a fun bag , and you will be subtly festive for Valentines Day.

Must Have Item for This Look:

Splurge

Hudson Nico Skinny Jeans ($106)

Save

Levi White Tab Skinny Jeans ($30)

 trendy

Everything about this look screams trendy. I am sure you have seen everyone rockin’ the wide brimmed hat look. I love this trend because it saves you from doing your hair while still looking chic. The crop top, fur coat and mules compliment each other well in this fun look.  Sometimes you just have to go for it, and wear all your favorite items together. I also love to wear all black and accessorize with a little color. These cut out mules with a red lip are perfect for a night out with your valentine.

Must Have Item for this look:

Splurge

Brit Suede Cut Out Mule by Alexander Wang ($250)

Save

Laser Cut – Out  Caged Heel by Charlotte Russe ($21)

dressy 1

This is a great look for going on a dinner date or out to the club. Sexy and classy at the same time. I think nude and red look great together. The nude tones down the red and gives it a softer look. This embroidered detailed dress accentuates curves with its cinched waist and draped detail; yet remains classy with the ornate detail. Set this sexy look off with simple jewelry to allow the dress to speak for it’s self. When you have a detailed dress remember LESS IS MORE when picking accessories.

MUST HAVE for this Look:

Splurge

Crepe and Viscose Mini Dress by Balmain ($4,865)

Save

Cory Dress from House of CB ($79)

draped

comfy

Comfort and style are easy to achieve if you have a pair of joggers in your wardrobe. Pair joggers with a pair of slide on sneakers and a graphic sweatshirt and you will be effortlessly cute.  Crew neck hoodies with a cool print or phrase are an easy way to spice up any outfit and remain comfortable at the same time. This vibrant pink rose hoodie is a comfy way to have some Valentine’s Day fun with your outfit.

Must Have for This Look:

Pink Roses Crewneck Sweater by Rage On ($55)

Long Sleeved Print Sweatshirt by Sheinside ($12)
