Fall 2013 Fashion Tips

24 Oct

It’s officially cold here in Jersey so time to re-amp my wardrobe (just in time for the weekend festivities!)

This year has been all about being eccentric (love it!)

-Think fur or leather outerwear in various colors, lengths and textures…. But pair around the one or two statement pieces and keep the rest of your outfit simple.  You don’t want overkill.

-Make sure these staples are weather appropriate.  No flouncy pieces.

-Classic prints always seem in.  I’m going to miss my floral but I do love plaid and houndstooth.  Menswear is your friend!

1Squeezing the last bit of floral in for the year 😛

-I seems hats are also in, but this girl tends to shy away from them.  Any type hat works at the moment.

-Jewel tones are going to be big, especially emerald green.  I’m pretty excited about this… time to pull out that Zoya Polish I got in this month’s Ipsy.. check out, my polish is from the Fall 2013 CASHMERES & SATINS Collection, it’s called Giovanna. When you buy 2 polishes using the promo code IPSYZ3 the third is free! Also free with the code- Zoya remover 🙂

-White is also in- thank goodness because I own so much of it! Not sure when that happened; I’m not the cleanest person. Regardless, I’m glad it not only now an acceptable winter color, but an encouraged one!

-Camo is hott. Although personally, not a huge fan, Hautelook (referral link) may be changing my mind with this great shoe sale “Camo, Anyone?” Prices are EXTREMELY affordable (they have loafers for $10!!) but make your purchase quick because this sale ends Saturday.

-As always- Layer, layer, layer!

-The peplum hasn’t slowed, such a good thing! Ever notice how flattering it can be?

-Statement Jewelry is going strong! My absolute favorite trend.

Stay tuned…. I have a few great outfits in mind for this weekend using pieces you probably already own 🙂


So Jersey

5 Oct


I finally had the courage to rock this leotard!!!! You can get one here on Ebay 🙂

The red jeans are from Target- go figure- and the shoes are from Sole Society <– save 20% on your first purchase of $60+ with this link


The bib necklace is Olivia Welles, Hautelook occasionally features her 🙂

Another great find, if you are looking for nude lipstick I know all my friends swear by Mac Myth Anyway but found this one comparable at a much more affordable price tag.. it’s Revlon Nude Attitude #duckface

Girls Achieve Grapeness!

26 Sep

Sorry to get all sorority on ya, but even years after graduation I feel the need to support my girls when they do these type of things- plus it’s an awesome color!! I’ll be wearing mine.



Girls who are empowered to realize their full potential grow into strong women – women who are far less likely to become victims of relationship abuse. So during October, Domestic Violence Awareness Month, SDT chapters nationwide are selling Girls Achieve Grapeness! – a custom shade of nail polish created to support JWI programs that help girls and young women become safe and independent.

Join women across the country in this powerful purple campaign to end violence against women.

Where can I get the polish?
Here is a list of SDT chapters selling Girls Achieve Grapeness! on campus and at special events. Girls Achieve Grapeness! will also be available at JWI events this fall- stay tuned for more information.

How much does it cost?
Girls Achieve Grapeness! is $10 per bottle – that’s $10 donated to a great cause!

When should I wear it?
All the time! Girls Achieve Grapeness! is the perfect fall hue. Wear it throughout October, which is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and keep wearing it as long as you like. It’s a great conversation starter: Whenever someone asks which shade you’re wearing, tell them about this campaign!

Okay, my fingers and toes are painted; what do I do now?
We have a few suggestions, but feel free to get creative.

  1. Show us your Grapeness! Take a picture of yourself and your friends wearing this polish and share it on Facebook. Be sure to tag JWI and SDT!
  2. Share or tweet your own moment of #Grapeness, and encourage others to do the same: When have you, as a girl or a woman, felt most powerful? Achieved your greatest goal? Stood up for yourself or someone else? Changed your life for the better? Start the conversation! Don’t forget to use hashtag #Grapeness!

My rule of thumb is:

For bright pants pants I stick with black tops

For more pastely pants I stick with an equally neutral shirt

For dark pants I stick with boldly colored tops
