The second of the five is Ashish from London Fashion Week! GLITTER GLITTER GLITTER! Oh yeah, and also lights! He is my new favorite designer. I read that he is a super shy person; which I think it is amazing that his real personality shines through his work. His designs and shows are very vibrant and flamboyant. And for this Fall 2014 show, it was almost like 80’s prom meets my 90’s childhood. The teased curled hair and poofy tooled gowns are very 80’s. Where as to the light up platform sneakers were totally 90’s. Even the long pink sparkly dress (4th picture) reminds me of a nightgown I used to own in the 90’s. Though it may be “too much” for some people, I love this fun loving collection!

New York and London Fashion Week 2014 has come and gone 🙁 . And even though Milan’s Fashion Week is still in session, there was so many fabulous shows and such amazing designers that it was difficult for me to choose a favorite. I was a bit bummed that I left London a week before the Spring/Summer 2014 London Fashion Week started. So I thought that this time around I would choose 5 of my favorite shows from Fall 2014 Fashion Weeks and a few looks from each that I loved.
The first of the five is, SB47 from New York Fashion Week! Stylish, sleek, black, and LEATHER, are definite musts in my eyes. These four looks are my favorite from the collection because the pieces are nothing too crazy and you can’t help but look bad ass in them (haha yes I said that). Absolutely love everything about these outfits!

Just a quick appreciation post for Miss Styles! Recently Gemma got her hair done by the famous Bleach London and I just fell in love with her color! The Washed Up Mermaid to Parma Violets ombre is absolutely stunning! Definitely my dream hair color. Looks like she got the idea from Sam Teasdale (bottom picture). Gemma you are my inspiration!
Pink or red lips for Valentines? Why not both! I thought this trend was so fun, especially for this pink and red holiday! To achieve these two-toned lips, first pick out two of your favorite shades! It also doesn’t have to be red and pink. Feel free to mix up the combos with pink and orange or red and gold. It’s your decision; have fun with it! For lips like pictures #1 & 2 just simply choose one color for the top lip and one for the bottom. For pictures #3 & 4 use the darker color of the two and paint the top lip. Then for the bottom lip, paint the same color on the outer parts. Use the second color to fill in the center and use your finger to bend where the two colors meet. Blend them just a little to create a bit ombre effect. There you have your perfect two toned lips for Valentine’s Day! Kisses!
Cheeky Blush For This Look >> Nars
Don’t be afraid to blush at the sight of your valentine this year. In fact embrace those rosy cheeks! Apply some on the apples of your cheeks to highlight the cheekbones. Go light on the eye makeup and focus on the cheeks to give you a natural healthy glow.
Cheeky Tips: For normal-oily skin stick to powdered blush so it won’t fade. If you have normal-dry skin try cream blush so it will go on nicely. Plus if you have oily skin, matte blushes will look the best. Shimmery blushes illuminate washed out complexions.
Want to incorporate this year’s color into your hair? I’m a huge fan of brightly colored hair (and I mean COLORFUL)! So when I heard about 2014’s color, I immediately thought of hair color. What a fun way to sport this color, even if it’s only for a while. One of my favorite models, Chloe Norgaard, already had added this hair color to her collection (3/4 pics above). You can get this hair color with semi-permanent hair dye.
Bleach London >> Parma Violet
Fudge Color >> Purples

Recently PANTONE had announced that the official color of 2014 is Radiant Orchid! And already stars are wearing this year’s color on the red carpet. Today at the SAG Awards red carpet, Giuliana Rancic was seen wearing and talking about her Radiant Orchid gown! Since it is award season, I predict that we are going to see more of this color on more stars. I’m really loving this color. Especially for hair! 😉
“An enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm.”
