What’s In Your Bag: BirchBox Girls Part 2

Rachel L 1

I heard about Rachel’s sack before meeting Rachel Liverman herself.  She emptied her handbag with force like someone walking the plank knowing there was no going back.  In Rachel’s case she knew that all of her little secrets were about to be revealed, so might as well go out strong.   Continue reading “What’s In Your Bag: BirchBox Girls Part 2” »

What’s In Your Bag? Birchbox Girls Part 1

We are all nosey creatures in one way or another, especially when it comes to fashion and beauty.  We would buy those gossip magazines in a heartbeat just to see which celebrity is carrying what in their handbags, clutches or miniaudiere which were picked out for them by a team of stylists (It Takes A Village…).  I figured out a long time ago, my fellow fashion, and beauty comrades are the ones with the good stuff.  They are the experts, who carry their own villages in mobile neighborhoods (handbags).  Last year, just as New York City was getting it’s chill on, we ladies swapped out the summer necessities from our handbags for products to survive the fall/winter blues.  I figured who better to have spill the goodies from their handbags than some of the Birchbox’s finest!  Yes people, expect the expected and then some.  Pretty makeup and beauty products in prettier cases and an infamous sack.

Everything But A Dress To A Wedding.

What to wear to a wedding without having to wear a dress? How do you avoid that skirted one-piece without looking casual or not put-together for that special event you’re been invited to? I tackled this question last year with a couple of clients, and now with another season of I Do’s to tackle we are trying to stick out of the crowd in all the right ways.

The Separates Troupe is one my favorites.  Getting more bang for your buck is perfect when donning a top and a pair of pants since it allows you to mix and match these pieces for several events and occasions in the future without having the tag “Ms. Repeat” on your  Facebook photos.

Happy New Year, Hold On What To Wear?



3, 2, 1  and another year for us to create new experiences, learn new lessons, wear new trends and let old trends go.  The last outfit we wear this year we have to make special, unique, and memorable since it will be photographed and tagged as NYE 2012 for all to see.  So let’s show the future how we ended 2011 in style!  

Jumpsuits were on top of our must have trends this entire year.  No reason to stop this one-piece beauty from doing it’s job, but lets va-va-voom it up with glam and sparkle for the ultimate champagne toast on Dec 31st.  

Another trend we loved throughout the year, Bright, bright, bright colors!  To stand out from a crowd, or to lift your spirits we went to bright colors and prints.  End the year with brighter thoughts on the mind and the body.  Black and sequins please.  

Stud Stud Studder.  Anyone and everyone has been a stud or spike wearer this year.  Jackets, dresses, belts, earrings, and clutches the list can go on and on as to what we’ve seen with studs on it, so let’s end the year with the trend that we proudly overdid. Incorporate some studs somewhere on your New Year’s Eve Look. Let the studs replace the sequins. 

Last but not least, those box clutches we love so much.  Pretty to look at, they stand upright on a table, and they are our embellished weapons we can proudly show off and do a double smack in case some gets smart with you.  Check out the looks I’ve put together that showcases some of the trends from 2011 that we should be happy to rock into 2012.  Click those studded shoes three times, 3, 2, 1… Happy New Year!
