Today's picks

The movie The Help starting Emma Stone inspired me to do this post based on the 1960s Souther belles.

To create a chic, yet vintage look I am sharing a few of my favorite pieces from Topshop, Asos, KEP jewerly, and Victory Heritage glasses.

This dress is ultra feminine, pair it with red pumps and you can't go wrong.

This denim shirt is fun because it can be worn with flare pants to create a more modern look, or skinnys.

These sunglasses are a major major craving for me right now. They a add vintage touch to any modern outfit.

I love this dress so much. The length is conservative, but the fit makes it super sexy. Add a belt like in the photo to accentuate the waist.

1960s was the decade of pearls. Why not add a fun twist with a bold necklace like this one from KEP.

Mascara review

Let's face it finding a Mascara that actually works is tough. I have tried countless kinds and have yet to find my favorite one. Dior show is great but after a few applications it becomes too sticky, and it breaks my wallet as I constantly try to replace it. Then, on Lauren Conrad's site I found Maybelline Full and Soft as a suggestion for $5 and decided to give it a chance.
I am pleased to inform you that it does the trick! It separates while adding volume and length. 

I am also adding here a short guide to my morning "natural" makeup routine, hopefully you guys find it useful.

Do you have a favorite beauty product? Please share!


Rachel Zoe is reading my mind

I have been wanting a pair of black stretch ankle booties for the fall.
Rachel Zoe happens to have a pair in her collection that fits my description like a glove.
Meet Audrey..

Rachel also has unveiled a few looks from her Sophomore collection, and while staying true to her 70s babe aesthetic her pieces have an incredibly chic vibe. I am specially loving the berry maxi and the mod cream dress. 

Did I mention her collection is moderately priced?

Happy shopping ladies

All that glitters

Jewelry update:

I've always been a fan of sparkle, and in that department Swarovski always delivers.
These two pieces are fresh from their fall collection and I can honestly say the pictures do them very little justice.

I already own the Louise ring in a red tone, but the wrap around style and black and white contrast make it a must have for the fall season.

As for the chic ring... did I mention purple is the new cobalt blue? (meaning the most dominant color on everything fashion, at least until its reign is overthrown by another hue).

and there you have it!
Shine away!
