So the dark cold days of fall are here and with it comes pumpkin spice lattes, warm sweaters and boots! Soon the fireplaces will be filled with stockings, and Christmas cookies will be cooking then out goes 2010. So here are some tips to spice your wardrobe for the fall/winter season.

Dress is layers- take your favorite shirt and accessories whether is a bag, a coat, or a head piece! Change it up so no one will even know that your repeating! Some of my favorites this year are leather jackets, gold necklaces, big rings, and silk scarves.

This necklace is from charlotte russes-$14.50.




















A jacket like this can be found at burlington coat factory for $20.00.


This is another Charlotte Russe beauty for the price of $5.00.

body mist;perfumes

So the other day i went out and i was running low on my body mists and perfumes, so i went into bath and body because they were having a sale and i got 3 diffrent scent that im absolutley loving. The thing i love about the mist is it's not tooheavy and the bottles last me about 6 months and i give myself four quick spritz every morning before school. So i got three bottles: twilight woods, sensual amber, and the new one dark kiss(my favorite)!
Dark Kiss has a very seductive smell its a little strong. I think it smells like grapefruit, sugar, and some type of flower combined. This is my new favorie of all the scents they have there. This is deffinatley something to wear during the winter. Not very christmas-y, but it has an all around warm smell.
The next one i bought was twilight woods. This is a very light scent and actually reminds me of the ski-trip i took last year were i had the best time and. This has a very sweet, innocent, warm smell to it. Again very light and not overwhelming.
The last scent i got was sensual amber, i figured i had to scents for the winter and since the bottles last a long time i should buy a scent for next summer as well. This is very floral and sweet. It reminds me off sunflowers even though sunflowers don't have a scent and even if they did i probably wouldn't smell like this. i'm weird i know! Its just very summery, and festive, you might be able to even work it during the fall as well cause it does have some warm undertones and everthing.
Now away from bath and body works im in love with dolce and gabbanas scent ice blue. It's light and refreshing, and just reminds me of all the fun i had during summer. If you are ever feeling sentimental this perfume compliments that emotion so well!

Must watch movie: Funny face

Audrey Hepburn it one of my biggest idols. She was sincere, worldly, classy, confident, and modest. She is what every women should strive to be. Her movie funny face was such a thrill to watch. Her acting was amazing as per her usual, and the funny quips will keep you laughing. Her charm and grace on screen ties together to make a wonderful romantic-comedy must see.

Bare minerals make up

I have been using bare minerals for a year now and i have limited complaints about the product. It's light weight powder that doesnt make you skin look cake-y if you apply it properly. The basic makeup kit includes, a foundation, a bronzer, a mineral veil, three brushes (one concealer brush, and two flawless face brushes), a brush shampoo, and a dvd that tells you how to apply them too look the best on your skin. The foundation doubles as a coverup for blemishs on your skin and works wonders. When applied all together the look is a flawless face that looks natural and fresh. I will never stop using this stuff its amazing. The foundation in the kit has lasted me 5 months, and the bronzer lasted me 8 months! The only complaint i do have is i wish that i would last just a bit longer on my skin it stays fresh longer than any other makeup i ever had and it lasts the whole school day with out any reapplication, but after school it dies out.

Hair care: Curly hair

If you are like me your curly hair can drive you crazy. It can get frizzy, big, unrulying, and tangled. But here comes a soulution to all your problems Tresmme moisture rich shampoo and conditioner. I used to use a variety of different products before using tresmme and let me tell you it made a big difference. My hair wasnt as frizzy anymore and it held mositure in to make it look sleek and shinny, but part of that might have also been the tresmme flawless curl extra hold mousse. It left my hair shinny and soft. The only problem i have with the mousse is it can get a little crunchy if you dont mix it in properly, so you really have to spread it through your hair evenly so it won't crunch. I would deffinately recommend this product to people with curly, hard to manage hair. Tresmme will change the life of your hair! Take it from someone who knows curly hair.

Designer of the week: Diane von Furstenberg

Diane von Furstenberg is a German/American designer who has taken the world by storm after her famous jersey wrap dress "Angela". After seeing her Fall 2010 collection i almost died from the absence of those clothes from my closet! The whole collection is based on her desires of living a mans life in a womens body. The collection has a mix of masculinity vs. femininity right from the first outfit to walk down the runway, a gray pant suit cut off above the ankles with a rosset bolero. The next piece had to be one of my favorites of the collection, The woolen layers over a gray brick patturned dress. Her collection was deffinately one of my favorites of the fall season ready to wear collections. The dress hit every note perfectly and stayed true to her theme. Look for yourself!



So what do you think of the designers collection? Hit or Miss? Did she open your eyes to a new look? She certainly opened mine? Her clothes can be located at your nearest nordstrom or bloomingdales! Should i do more designers of the week posts? tell me what you think!

This collection was insipired by a fantasy garden. And it certainly delivered. The collection includes a variety of pieces that are very elegant, modern and breezy. The colors are light, yet bold. The looks are dreamy beautiful.




tr├Ęs romantique Noo? I love how everything just looks light, innocent, and feminie. What do you think of the collection?

The Trend: high socks with heels

While watching the Prada fashion show there wasn't to much that caught my eye. Everything was very vintage inspired and well very covered in a not so sexy way, but there was one trend that i loved it was the geek-sheek high socks with heels look. Look for yourself...

I loved the beige coat in this one and the gold and the black just put it over the top.















So what do you think of this new trend that seems to have tackled the runway? Cute? or not your thing?
I definatley will be wearing this trend. The colors can brighten or dull any outfit, keep you warm and add some lace and you could make a sexy outfit nooo?

Xoxo, until next time
