Loving my Nike Women’s Dunk Sky Hi. Perfectly cool in all the right ways.

a pop of red

October 17, 2013

there is no accent color quite like red to add a punch of color to your look. a red bag, red lips or maybe even charlotte olympia red velvet kitty wedges if you’re ever so lucky, but either way, we could not support a pop of red more than we do. what do you think? are you in?

beauty blender

October 16, 2013

just a heads up, if you aren’t using this on a daily basis, then your makeup isn’t as good as it could be. this is a must have on the dallas shaw team and we wanted to make sure you’re using it as well. oh, a tip, don’t waste your time with anything but the original- it blends better, lasts longer and feels better on the skin. or, as we call it, magic.

October 15, 2013

studded mini dresses, bordeaux lips and gold accessories, oh my! don’t you just feel Fall (and maybe even a little bit Holiday!) with this board? we’re so sold on that Coach bag. just saying.

halloween lashes

October 14, 2013

why bother with a full costume when sometimes all you need is out-of-this-world eye makeup? we, for one, vote yes to this being every chic beauty girl’s Halloween choice. we’re totally inspired!
we found some really beautiful options from Shu Uemura,  Flutter, and this beautiful company called Paperself that makes fake, beautiful lashes out of paper (insane). Also, below are some really gorgeous options from Napoleon Perdis. 
who knew playing with lashes could be this much fun?

the one that got away

October 11, 2013

Moda Operandi, one of my favorites, just launched a super cute campaign called The One That Got Away, where they asked fashion industry insiders to describe that moment when they fell in love with that one piece of clothing and let it, unfortunately, slip through their hands. Devastating, I know.
{ view each video here. so worth it, promise. Karlie Kloss / Poppy Delevingne / Anna Dello Russo / Giovanna Battaglia / Caroline Issa / Leandra Medine }

For me, my piece that got away was this insanely gorgeous yellow halter dress from the Nina Ricci 2014 Resort Collection. I knew the second I saw it that my closet would never be the same without it, but somehow I let it pass me by. Heartbreakingly, it’s no longer available anywhere. { ps if you ever find it, tweet me– I need this dress! }

Moda is having a Nina Ricci trunkshow right now (only for two more days- until October 13!), so I went through and picked out the other items that I don’t think any of us should let get away. My number one? This insanely beautiful printed skirt. 

The Nina Ricci collection just.gets.us. So feminine, but still so strong and bold. I love that each piece makes such a statement.

So what’s your piece that got away? Let’s all comfort each other in the comments below, it’s best to just let it out–

styled graphic tees

October 10, 2013

we can’t get enough of styled graphic tees. how great do they look dressed up with a pair of high-wasted silk pants, while also looking just as great dressed down with your favorite jeans and a blazer? a great graphic tee (or tees!) is one of the most versatile items you have in your closet, and I bet you never even thought about that. 
here are some of our favorites:
