We’re Stripping Down to Nude This Season

Fashion This season we’re all about nudes, neutrals and blush tones. One of the best things about nude tones is that you can wear them with virtually anything. Whether you wear neutral/blush tones alone, or together as a complete outfit you’ll be looking chic and timeless. You can certainly never go wrong when it comes to this color palette.

Dusty rose, powder pink and barely-there nudes are the way to go for the upcoming spring season. These colors are sure to bring out the girly, romantic side of you. Soft and warm, you will always feel at ease when wearing these versatile colors of the season. (more…)

Red Hot or Pretty in Pink. Which Will You Be?

Pretty in Pink Let’s face it: Valentine’s Day can be a very stressful holiday. For instance, if you’re single commuting to work on Valentine’s Day you’ll notice every couple holding hands, stealing a kiss or posing for a picture-perfect moment in front of Times Square. On an ordinary morning, you wouldn’t even recognize these moments because you’re too busy dodging these said couples on your way to work after the trainee barista at Starbucks just messed up your coffee order.

On the other hand, if you’re taken your desk will be flooded with roses and your office-mates will be throwing all the “Ooh’s” and “Ahh’s” at you…and eying that luxurious chocolate that has yet to be opened. You know your significant other has planned a romantic, candlelit dinner for the two of you at a restaurant you don’t often venture to.

There is, however, one thing in common on Valentine’s Day whether you are single or taken, and that’s looking like you just walked out of a photo shoot. We’re talking hair done, sultry makeup and an outfit that’s going to make you the center of attention. That’s where we come in! (more…)

Ideas for the Perfect New Year’s Eve Dress!

New Year's

In the regular world, Halloween is when children dress up in costumes and beg for candy. In Girl World, Halloween is the one night a year when a girl can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it.

-Mean Girls

New Year’s Eve is much like Halloween. It’s that one time of year where certain over-the-top styles like glitter, sequins, mini dresses and sky high platforms are acceptable. Unless it’s your style to go out every night wearing shimmering makeup and glitzy dresses, try and save it for a special occasion like New Year’s Eve.

Shop a few of our favorite picks for New Year’s Eve below and check out the rest of our fabulous options, here! (more…)

All Hail Queen Bey!

The morning of Friday, Dec 13th all Beyoncé fans round the world woke to an epic surprise. As if she couldn’t set the bar any higher than she previously had, Beyoncé released her fifth, self-titled “visual album” on iTunes complete with 30-second previews of each song’s very own music video plus three bonus videos. The album features 14 new tracks with collaborations with Jay Z, Drake, Frank Ocean and more.

Beyoncé said in a press release of the new, completely unexpected album:

“I see music. It’s more than just what I hear. When I’m connected to something, I immediately see a visual or a series of images that are tied to a feeling or an emotion, a memory from my childhood, thoughts about life, my dreams or my fantasies. And they’re all connected to the music. I didn’t want to release my music the way I’ve done it. I am bored with that. I feel like I am able to speak directly to my fans. There’s so much that gets between the music, the artist and the fans. I felt like I didn’t want anybody to give the message when my record is coming out. I just want this to come out when it’s ready and from me to my fans.”
