This Just In: Champagne Faux

Featuring: Ann Taylor jacket

Fur, fur, fur & more fur! (well, faux fur that is..) My love for soft fuzzy things can be found in my wardrobe & all over my apartment - peep the faux fur rug behind me, found here. I saw this gorgeous champagne-colored jacket while 'window-shopping' in NYC & knew it was just the glam-factor my wardrobe needed.

Have an awesome fur piece of your own? Please share! I seriously can't get enough.

This Just In: Requiem by Kat Von D

Reporting my latest makeup review, from NJ Transit -

While shopping for the holidays, I ventured into Sephora to pick up a few things for my sister. Obviously I tried on a few new lipsticks & fell in love with Kat Von D's Everlasting lasting liquid lipstick in this gorgeous lilac, called Requiem.

To be honest, I seriously LOVE the color but I'm not so sure I about the formula. It became very dry, very quickly & didn't seem to last past my first cup of coffee. I will say it lasts a little longer & isn't as dry if you apply a coat of chap stick, followed by lip liner prior to application, but I'm not so sure I would purchase this product again based on my own preferences. I wear lipstick everyday, so I prefer moisturizing products. So for those of you who aren't a liquid lipstick kinda gal, I've made it my mission to find a great (less dry) dupe!

Looking Back

Featuring: Express Jacket, H+M top, James Jeans, Steve Madden sandals, Prada sunglasses, DVF clutch

I came across this look while going through my photos. It's crazy to think these shots were taken in April; when I was blonder, my hair was shorter & I was going through one of the biggest transition periods of my life. 

It's awesome to be able to look back & remember the exact day these were taken. I was frustrated, upset & had to really push myself to simply pose for the camera. A lot has changed since then & I am thankful for all I've been through. I've made some major changes in my life; getting my own apartment, changing jobs, buying my own car, etc. But the biggest change I made in 2015 is my change in mindset. I am happier & more independent than I've ever been. I guess going through things truly does change your perspective, teaching you that change isn't always a bad thing & is sometimes just the right thing to get you through it all.

*ps. since the weather was warmer when I took these shots, I would simply pair this look with high heel boots or a pair of leather booties - like these or these.

Grey Effect

Featuring: Forever 21 dress, Cynthia Vincent heels, MAC Candy Yum Yum lipstick

Ask anyone what I constantly buy & they'll tell you I'm a lipstick addict. I simply can't go into a makeup store without buying myself a new shade. In my eyes, lipstick is an inexpensive way to change any look & I love experimenting with different shades & trends.

This Just In : MK Snake

Featuring: Michael Kors dress

If there's one thing I am all about, it's monochrome. Don't get me wrong, I love some color every now & then, but there's something timeless & effortless about a monochromatic color scheme. So when I saw this Michael Kors dress, I knew it was perfect for work & I had to have it.
