Fall Fashion

Ok, I am a little eager for the September, fall fashion issues to come out! It brings back memories of reading Teen magazine, picking out which looks I liked before Mom would take me clothes shopping for school. :)

Here are some of my favorite trends I will be eyeing this Fall season!

~Chanel Two toned tights: Such a fresh take on tights.

~High, round toe shoes with ankle strap: Love the ankle strap, so classic while the round toe brings a mod feel.

~I am a huge fan of mod.. so platform works for me :)

~Red is always a good color to have for a handbag. This one is simple and basic. And big.. they have to be big!!!

~Collars: I have never been a fan of anything really up close on my neck. This is definitely do-able though, it just adds a little something extra:

~Wide leg trousers with a belted button up shirt. I like the belted shirt, glad to see it go into Fall. The vest is a nice twist, reminding me of winter:

~I am a big fan of sophisticated dresses. The contrast of the dark tights is perfect!

~I don't think leather coats will ever go out of style:

~Although the two toned tights are refreshing, I still love the boldness of color tights. A pop of color is necessary in fashion sometimes :)

~Sometimes short goes a long way:

~LOVE Tracy Reese dresses:

~Belting jackets/sweaters:

These are just a few of my favorites, till the Fall fashion issues come out next month.....

My Favorite Things (Beauty) Part 1

I am a Beauty product junkie (like so many of us girls are!) Here are a few of my favorite things and where to find them:

Sephora~this must be the mecca for all beauty products. There is rarely something I don't find from Sephora. Also rare that I spend less than $100 on every single visit here.

~Diorshow Mascara. This has to be the BEST mascara! They use it in runway shows and it gives you the look you need to achieve without any additional products.
~Murad Acne Spot Treatment. Great to wear under makeup or alone to quickly and efficiently take care of a random blemish.
~Laura Mercier-If I had to where only one brand of makeup for all of it (foundation, eyeliner, shadow, blush, etc.) it would be Laura Mercier. The Secret Camouflage is a must. Best concealer around with precise coloring by mixing two tones to find the perfect match for your skin. The Almond/Coconut bath products are to die for! Luxury at it's best. The Honey Bath leaves your skin feeling super silky.
~Smashbox-Great for eyeshadows. I have a trio palette I basically use on a daily basis.
~Bourjois-Effect 3D High Shine Lip Gloss. I have found this gloss to stay on the longest without reapplication. The colors are these great iridescent colors that shimmer differently on everyone.
~Sephora Black Eyeliner. This is a great, affordable basic black eyeliner.

The selection of fragrance is beyond belief too as they tend to carry the newest fragrances available in all brands!

I would buy this company if I could!

What Fashion is to me

Ok, yes... I eat, sleep and basically breathe fashion. I love it. I love everything about it! I love the high end stuff, but the trendy stuff is also fun to play with. Fashion is something you can be creative with, it always changes, or you can be lazy with it if you so desire.
I created this blog to be all about Fashion (maybe with a little Beauty involved). I have the Myspace/Facebook thing going on about what is going on with me so I figured why not have a little fun dedicating a page to what I love most! :)
So take from it what you want. I will share my favorite things as well as ideas with you. I am convinced you can never learn absolutely everything there is to know about everything! :)
