Today marked the day that the boots came down from the attic! I'm currently rocking a pair of fab spanish suede with hooks & eyes all the way up...they're 5 years old but never seem to go out of style. That's my goal for this season...to rock the trends without breaking the bank! Into the back of the closet I go! Updates on how I make it work. Til then, here are some wardrobe trends for you to try:
- Rocker-chic looks are in for fall. Studs, rivets, big bold buckles, and chains will all be dominating boots, shoes, jackets, handbags, and other accessories. Thigh high, skin tight boots are also the latest craze (done tastefully, they're quit chic...done wrong, they're just a hot tranny mess), but don't toss out the bootie from last season! Actually, pretty much any boot is in style in nude or neutral colors.
- Layers still are a popular look, paired with skinny pants or leggings. To keep you from looking overwhelmed on top, many designers added cinched or belted waists. I'm working this spring's long drape sweaters with skinny jeans and a belt since I'm of the booty-licious variety.
And now some make-up tips:
- Eyelashes! They're still all the rage and learning to put a pair on can take you from office to evening in about 2 minutes. I especially like Andrea #53 and DUO adhesive.
Use them several times by removing them every night, peeling the glue off the band and placing them on their tray to keep the shape. I can wear mine 5-7 times with proper care!
If you're really up for a splurge, eyelash extensions are FABULOUS. A little spendy but wonderful and have very little daily care involved. Try LashStudio in Dallas for the most expert application...
- Enhance that eye-color! Everyone and their dog has a mascara to enhance the color of your peepers. I find them to be a little clown-esque and sparkly and since this isn't the prom, they'll not be in heavy rotation here on my planet. Therefore, learn what "tone" is and USE IT!
Green eyes=purple toned browns, aubergine (eggplant) eyeliner
Brown eyes=deep dark navy liner and light blue toned shadows
Blue eyes=rich brown shadows and mascara
Hazel eyes=purple tones will enhance the green and blue tones will bring out the delicious golden browns
So there it is, Pumpkins! Your wardrobe advisor has spoken....enjoy!
