Just sharing a new favorite purchase. Spotted these See by Chloe beauts over on Pinterest and bought immediately. Not only are these nude and suede, upon closer look the perforations are little stars! STARS! I have been wearing mine already with dresses on cooler summer nights and plan to take them right into Fall paired with skinny gray denim.

There are actually only a few of these left across all sites, BUT if you’re lucky enough to find your size I’ll be happy to be shoe twins with you.

One of the many tricks I have learned from working in the style industry, is not to hide your jewelry away in a box. When styling my living room for a recent Rue Mag shoot, a few tables felt like they need just “that extra something”. I couldn’t place my finger on it, but felt the need for some bling so I threw my favorite Anthro earrings in a teacup, a new watch by Zadig et Voltaire and some sparkly favorites from Bauble Bar onto the coffee table for that extra touch- and they have been there since. Why hide away your costume jewelry when it can play double duty as a design piece?

Need some new jewels to do the trick? Here are some favorites from Bauble Bar

Happy 10th birthday Be Delicious!! That’s right, it’s the 10 year anniversary since DKNY Fragrances launched Be Delicious. Can you believe that? 10 years later and it still smells just as great as it did day one. For those of you who haven’t jumped on board with DKNY Fragrances, make sure to check them out. Beautiful bottles and beautiful scents, so really what more could you ask for? Luckily, I’ve had the honor of working with  DKNY Fragrances as their Core Girl this year. I’m obsessed with so many of their scents, including Be Delicious. DKNY PR Girl is celebrating the anniversary by spritzing some Be Delicious throughout her party while sipping on champagne. How will you celebrate? Hopefully with a brand new bottle of Be Delicious.

Shimmer.  I always love me some shimmer.  And on top of it, this look is on the great Karlie Kloss.  Here’s how to get Karlie’s shimmery look:

Bar Cart Bling

I love bling, you love bling, but have you ever thought about blinging out your bar cart?  You may remember seeing my metallic/Gatsby party gone wild bar cart on insta here.  I designed that for holiday, but decided hey, metallics and bars should go together all the time, so here’s my interpretation of how to add some metal to your bar.

And once you’re done styling your cart, invite me over for a drink? It is Friday after all…

Another great giveaway happening today on the blog; MyChelle Dermaceuticals!  And what’s even better is, they’re giving away all 4 of the products you see above.  Now I know some of you may be young, but let me tell you a secret–you are never too young to start taking care of your skin.

How great are MyChelle products?  Glad you asked.

First off, all products are cruelty-free, gluten-free, vegan friendly, which is just awesome. But let’s get into what you get if you WIN:

The Wrinkle Spot Treatment has a nice scent and rollerball applicator and don’t call me crazy but I SWEAR after one coat my wrinkle disappeared. The Peptide + Anti-Wrinkle Serum works in 3 ways: firms, hydrates, and smooths.  Advanced Argan Oil is literally a head-to-toe product, as it can be added to your favorite facial or body moisturizers and hair conditioners.  I’m not 100% sure what the Remarkable Retinal Serum can’t do–repair sun damage and age spots, reduces fine lines and redness, prevents breakouts–it’s a miracle!!

So now that you’re desperate to own these products, here’s how to enter:

Like MyChelle Dermaceuticals on Facebook and like my new FB page then comment below with your Facebook name & email address.

Simple and easy.

You know how much I love a one-of-a-kind anything. I cannot resist a good monogram or personalization option which is why Accessory Concierge’s new Roman Numeral Cuff has been on my wrist since the day they sent it my way.  I really think this makes such a unique birthday or bridal gift. Maybe even a push present with the baby’s birth date on it? Might even get myself one with today’s date on it as a reminder of new beginnings.

So tell me, what date would you choose?

Clarke Crush

Game of Thrones fan or not, I think we can all say we have a girl crush on Emilia Clarke.  If you don’t know her, look at this picture and her makeup and fall in love.  Those eyebrows, her highlighted cheeks, that lip color; hi Emilia my name’s Dallas and I love you.

Since I put this photo up on my instagram the other day, I’ve been getting non-stop emails and questions about my rings and here it is, my secret jewelry loves, Anna Beck.  Aren’t they so great?  The jewelry is made in Bali, so it has a nice Asian vibe and what’s even better is that they donate a percentage of their profits to charity.
