Week of Style.

weekofstyle1

I’m a huge fan of wearing the same item over & over again especially a staple piece like distressed denim jeans! You can definitely re-work that piece into a week full of worthy looks! From your meeting to date night and everything in between, you can make sure to rely on your favorite pair of jeans to get you out of any wardrobe rut!

Below are a weeks full of looks; get inspired! Don’t be afraid to wear the same item all week long; just spice things up each day!

Ps- let me know if you want to see more of these and which staple pieces you’d like to see.

JEANS:

Rag & Bone skinny capri

MONDAY: Meetings can be some of the most important things on your to-do list for the week especially on a Monday. To stay away from your typical office-meeting look, try a look that’s bit more cool and effortless by wearing a white cropped top, silky blazer and pointy heels! Add a fun pop of neon with a bold pair of shades. (Note: this look is for a more freelance position/creative job meeting as you’re free to wear whatever; this look is not appropriate for a corporate 9-5)

TUESDAY: For flea market days, you want to be comfortable. Wearing a flowy, sheer button up is the perfect pairing with the jeans and sparkly brogues! Make sure to carry a canvas tote to carry all your vegetables, flowers and goodies!

 Threadsence blouse, Miu Miu sparkly brogues, Karen Walker shades

WEDNESDAY: Art gallery openings are a fun event where fashion and art meet. You definitely want to stand out from the crowd, so be bold and try mixing your favorite prints! Mine are camo and stripes! Pair the skinnys with a cool oversize camo jacket over a tee and pointy striped heels! Add a red lip color for extra points!

THURSDAY: Shopping time! Dress comfortably while looking extra sporty-luxe in a fun polka dot tee! The rips and dots are definitely a killer combo. Add a pop of red to your look by wearing your mega dope pair of sneakers!

Comme des Gargons tee (striped here), Nike sneakers, Karen Walker shades

FRIDAY: Dress up the jeans with a pretty floral blouse and sunglasses to match. Your date/beloved one will for sure love the look! Add studded heels to toughen up the look!

Chaos: Punk to Couture Exhibit.

POLYVOR14

Last week I took a quick trip to NYC so that I can visit The Met for the Chaos: Punk to Couture exhibition as a Polvyore community correspondent! It was a total experience as we were treated to a VIP tour of the exhibition with Moda Operandi x Polyvore. We saw firsthand the amazing pieces by some of the best designers/labels like; Burberry, Moschino, Vivienne Westwood, Maison Martin Margiela, and many more. The exhibition showed how punk has influenced high fashion today and how everyday items like safety pins were a big part of the punk movement. It was an era of DIY- where they liked to add certain elements to their look like rips, patches, holes, safety pins, etc. to make themselves stand out.

After the 1+ hour tour, we then headed to the Moda Operandi offices so that we could take a closer look at some of the Punk to Couture pieces!

Is the punk era inspiring to you as far as fashion goes? Do tell!
Enjoy the photos!

| Outside the Met | It was my first time visiting the Met, and although we were only there to check out the Chao: Punk to Couture exhibition, I’m making it a goal to go back to check out the whole museum. It was mind-blowing!

Mirror, Mirror…

Ok, ok… I admit it. I’m a makeup junkie. My love for makeup is somehow growing as  I get older, not sure if it’s because I find some sort of comfort in knowing that I look different every time I try 
to switch things up, but I enjoy discovering new products
and rekindling my love for those that I stopped using.

I’m not an expert or claim to be, but being around special women in my life who are make-up artists 
and creatives, I’m lucky to be surrounded by great makeup (high & low), tips and tricks!

Beauty is definitely something that as you get older, you grow into. If that makes sense. 
Now, I’m more comfortable with trying new looks, things, ideas and styles. It’s all part of
 having fun and not taking it too seriously!

Below are a few of my favorites must-haves that I’m currently into. I’m really big on lipstick, blush/bronzer, perfume 
and mascara!
Check them out and let me know if you guys have any questions!
Would love to answer any beauty related q’s.

Ok, this is serious. I must have over 12 bottles of perfume. I love scents so I’m constantly splurging on good ones, but don’t get me wrong, I’ll buy inexpensive ones too. Right now, I’m totally diggin’ Marc Jacobs Daisy Sunshine. It’s sweet, soft, and has the right amount of citrusy touch! Everytime I wear it I 
get asked what perfume I have on- it smells really fresh! #mjdaisychain

I always had trouble finding the “right” mascara.. never had one that really made my lashes stay
 up or that made them voluminous. After many, many visits to Sephora and Rite Aid to try and
 find “the one”, I’ve finally found a couple that I love and won’t stop using. This YSL Shocking mascara (volume effect). It really does the trick without having to use too many coats! I have thin, lashes 
so this really gives it an extra oomph. I also love Dior’s Diorshow mascara; I’ve been using this one
 longer and it’s my ultimate favorite. It’s long-lasting, makes my lashes stay curl and gives me volume!
I also love Maybelline’s Lash Discovery Waterproof mascara- perfect for reaching the hidden lashes!

You have to have good brushes to apply your make-up with; I know they can be a bit pricey but it will make all the difference when you start applying your make-up. Invest in a couple of good ones; like
powder, blush and foundation brushes.
 Above is my favorite- NARS Botan brush. It’s a kabuki brush that’s perfect for applying
powder, blending and buffing!

I’m not really of an eyeshadow type of girl because I don’t know how to successfully achieve a cool
 look with eyeshadows. However, I do own a few palettes because I do like to just add a bit of
nudes/browns to my lids and add a brown liner for a fresh looking day-time wear smokey
 eye. I do wear lighter shades underneath my brow for some definition and glow.
This Estee Lauder palette has been my go-to for a golden touch on my eyes. The teal and orange
 I’ll only use for special events or when my best friend is around to apply it!

For lips,  I’m obsessed with having the perfect soft pink/nude lipstick. My skin complexion is tanned and I feel like these shades always complement my skin tone a lot better than say, bright ones. I have 4 favorites that I literally buy two of every time I go and buy them (one for my purse and one in my car/or house). Lately I’ve been reaching out for this Estee Lauder in Pinkadelic 01. Gives me the right amount of blush tone pink on my lips! Looks so natural!

For my inexpensive lipsticks, I always wear Maybelline’s Baby Lips in Pink Punch. This is seriously, my hands-down favorite. I religiously wear this thing! Always carry it with me- always.
Sometimes on top of that one, I wear Laura Mercier’s HydraTint balm.
You guys always ask me what lipstick I’m wearing in my photos and those two are always it!

ps- always carry bobby pins! I do!… they come in handy, all the time.

I love me some blush and bronzer. I’ve been wearing the two for as long as I can remember. I usually wear MAC’s Prism blush and Physicians Formula bronzer. Recently, I discovered
Lorac’s blush/bronzer duo in Hot & Spicy and fell in love!
Now I don’t have to carry both my blush and bronzer palettes and can carry them in one! Plus, it 
gives me a nice shimmer when I apply it on the apples of my cheek!

The Rimmel ScandalEyes eyeshadow stick is great too, I use this only on the inside of my
 tear duct to help open up my eyes and it also looks pretty in photos! 

Below is a fun little collage to go along with this beauty post! Totally freshening up and 
wearing vibrants colors for this spring! Cant wait!
