Pleats & Plaid

Oops, it’s happened again! That plaid pleated skirt we loved on Britney Spears in the Baby One More Time videoIggy Azalea’s Fancy outfit, and of course, the movie Clueless. Now, the trend has a modern modest twist. As a former private school girl, I would take cover from THOSE teachers who would always notice my skirt was too short and that my lip-gloss was perfectly applied. Needless to say, I never saw those lip-glosses again. However, I did see plenty of rulers back then. “It’s 2 inches above the knee BECAUSE I’M TALL!” (That and because it’s rolled up…)

This was basically my life from 7-12th grade…7037007_origWhen a teacher came up behind me: “SHIT, SHIT, SHIT!”

“Its really not that short and its chap stick!”

After school detention: “Hi Mom, can you pick me up after school?”

Out of detention: “Keep the lip-gloss bitches.”

 Those days you couldn’t pay me to walk the halls in a long skirt, but now I am down to drop major cash for a pleated plaid midi skirt. The midi skirt is a tad higher than a maxi but long enough to prevent the prude from loosing their shit. Katy Perry, Jessica Alba, and Ariana Grande are just a few of the many celebs who have been sporting this trend. Get the fashion-forward look with these skirts below or visit my Pinterest board for more. 

Hermès Autumn-Winter Launch Party

On 691 Madison Avenue, the unveiling of the Hermes Autumn/Winter Shoe Collection showcased a unique shopping experience for its customers. The exclusive cocktail party celebrated the stunning new collection with a fun shoe cam, munchies and drinks, while many women couldn’t wait till fall to start shopping! The handsome Hermes waiters provided guests with mini tacos, grilled cheese, and other fancy bites… all were delicious (waiters included). I loved the burgundy red touches in the collection, a popular color/trend for Fall/Winter 2014. Enjoy this inside look from the event!

Upgrade Your Summer Makeup

I get so heated when I leave the house in the summer with my makeup looking fresh, only to get to my destination looking less like a magical mermaid and more like a scary swamp lady…The reality is if you choose to waste your time contouring your face you will look like you have fallen face first into the mud by the end of the day. Don’t get makeup battle wounds. The summer sun will ALWAYS win in the end.

Wearing waterproof makeup in the summer can help you go about your day without reapplying or being surprised when you look in the mirror later on. However, take full advantage of these few months by embracing your natural glow and freckles. You look healthier, not to mention younger, when you don’t conceal and cover up your skin. Use minimal makeup to enhance what you already have.
