Kiss & Tell – A Fashion Must!

Pucker up ladies, one of Spring 2014’s biggest trend is making its mark.  It is all about the lips! Smacked on the runway from designers such as (my favorite) Diane Von Furstenberg, Alice + Olivia, Saint Laurent, and Giles- the lip prints are all over dresses, skirts, blouses, accessories, and even shoes.

Keep a look-out for this trend, as this is the time when it’s actually fashionable to kiss and tell 😉

Here are some of my current loves:::

6.  Markus Lupfer Lips Sweater

A kiss is a lovely trick designed by nature to stop speech when words become superfluous.

A million kisses,
Honey

Marc Jacobs’ Honey

I received an email from Nordstrom this morning introducing a new fragrance by Marc Jacobs, named Honey. I remember coming across an article from WWD a few months ago (maybe May) about this, and I was so excited about it because of the name 😉 of course it became less of a priority, so I forgot about it until today.

Long story short, for those who haven’t been updated, the whimsical and vibrant fragrance Honey by Marc Jacobs was officially launched exclusively at Sephora in July, then Bloomingdales in August, followed by the rest of other department stores in September, thus explaining Nordstrom’s announcement.

It looks so bright and fun! Just looking at the bottle makes you feel happy & good inside.

“Honey by MARC JACOBS is a sunny delicious floral – energetic and alluring, with a sparkling, golden touch. The perfect mix of brightness and warmth. The fragrance energizes with the freshness of green pear brightened with a splash of fruity punch and juicy mandarin. At the heart of the fragrance is orange blossom, a note of sparkling femininity that mingles with nectars of honeysuckle and peach. Honey, vanilla, and smooth woods dry down to a warm, golden base.” -marcjacobs.com

I looked through YouTube for a commercial of the fragrance, and I have to say, it was the cheesiest, cutest commercial I’ve watched in a while. Seriously, you judge for yourself…

Too cute!!! The song “We Go Well Together” by Goldheart suits it perfectly! I especially love the screenshot below:

Nordstrom is selling the fragrance for $52 (1.7 oz) and $92 (3.4 oz)

I may stop by Nordstrom to check it out. Although I am usually a fan of muskier and sweeter fragrance, rather than the floral and fresh scent, I just might give it a try and have date with Honey.

Love,
(the real) Honey 😉

Walk the Line- Stripes Fashion

Stripes—-one of the biggest trends this spring!

A classical, timeless, fun and edgy piece, stripes make another comeback this season.  Only bigger, bolder…even more colorful, and versatile.

From classic mod stripes (Michael Kors), to whimsical nautical stripes (Vivienne Westwood), Bohemian stripes (Dolce and Gabbana), chevron stripes (Jonathan Saunders), Warholian stripes (Marc Jacobs)… even elegantly-striped gowns (Oscar de la Renta)!

Some tips on how to wear stripes:

*Choose pieces that accentuate your waist.
*Don’t let stripes overwhelm your figure.
*For petites, vertically striped pants or skirts can make you look taller when worn with a solid-colored top.
*For dresses, avoid horizontal stripes that widen your shape.
*If you have a boyish figure horizontal stripes will give the illusion of curves. This helps enhance your proportion with distortion.

*Darker colors are more slimming than lighter ones.

My darling good friend Jena will be celebrating her 28th birthday this Saturday, and this fellow fashionista’s theme is stripes! Still contemplating on what type of outfit to put together. A few ideas below:
