Fall Fashion Ads are Whimsical, Artistic October 15, 2009

When I think of fall I think of leaves turning gold, cool breezes, cool colored pea coats and for some reason the artist in me really comes alive. Now I am no painter, I am ok at photography and let’s just say that my drawing skills are at the 3rd grade level, which may be an exaggeration. However, I do know that I love to look at art. My favorite about the Fall season is the artistic elements that help fall fashion ads come alive.

    Here are a few of my favorite ads that have been appearing in the fashion mags:

Michelangelo di Battista, photographer of these Siri is Pure Gold ads, using model Siri Tollerod. These ads have a renaissance look to them, with the edgy fashion appeal needed to show off the clothing. Love it!

This is for a Marc Jacobs spring and summer campaign, however, it has been appearing in fall magazines. I do think this gives more of a fall look than a summer look.

Out of all the ads Louboutin did utilzing shoes, this has to be my favorite! I love the dark element of the painting that is mixed with the edgy heel.

Here Christian Louboutin used shoes to be a part of baroque art. Baroque is the perfect era to remind someone of Fall.

Thrift stores have perfect costumes October 10, 2009

Yesterday I would have to say was the most successful day I’ve had in a really long time. A friend and I were on a mission to find out Halloween costumes, with out getting a cliche costume from the store. I have decided to go as a 60’s flight attendant, with a mod almost Jackie Kennedy look. My friend, after going through every costume we could think of that is awesome, we stumbled upon the Willy Wonka idea. Anywho, we began our search at some thrift stores and came out VERY successful! Then we decided to top our outfits off by going to some of our favorite, inexpensive stores. Check out what we found!

DSC02912 This dress was so perfect that we had to get it! We found it at a thrift store for only $10, it still had the original tags on it and was purchased for $130! What a steal! Oh- and you can’t tell me that this dress doesn’t scream flight attendant!

 

DSC02913 We found these shoes at Charolette Rousse and luckily they were having a buy one pair, get the second for $10 deal, so of course we immediately jumped on that! These shoes are so cute, but also perfect for the dress!

 These earings have a classic look to them and the bracelet has a retro feel. Both of them go with the dress and the theme very well! All that’s left is the perfect hair style and of course, the flight attendant hat! This outfit was a total of $32, the most expensive part being the shoes. But of course, they can be worn again!

 

 

Willy Wonka was a lot of fun to shop for. We mixed the colors that he wore in the movie, and made it cute for a girl.

DSC02923 First we started with the awesome Wonka hat

DSC02921(1) Then we headed to Plato’s Closet where she found this perfect dark green jacket, that instead of being long like Wonka’s was, it is a waist coat that is perfect for the girly version.  Also, if you’ll notice the sparkley scarf inside of the coat- instead of a bow tie like he wore, we went to Hobby Lobby and purchased some fabric to make a flashy scarf.

 Then we went to Forever 21 where we found the perfect pair of purple pants, that match the Wonka Hat! Now all she has to do is play with her make up, do some funky curls under her hat and get some pointed boots. Oh- and she will wear a button down white shirt with long sleeves that way they stick out under the coat. Some fun add-ons include lollipops with cool designs sticking out of her coat pockets.

This entire outfit was under $30, most of which can be found in your own closet!

 

So, instead of going out and getting a costume doesn’t have to be a trip to your halloween shop, start digging around in your local consignment or thrift stores. You can find some amazing things!

I’ve been Semplified September 28, 2009

DSC02901Hey guys! It’s Jessica again! Just a recap: My hair- dry, frizzy, curly and uncontrollable. I tried every product under the sun that was ‘guranteed’ to work for me. Then I was told about the Semplifi Hair System, which I have been using for a couple of weeks now.

My hair feels amazing and I am truly impressed with the product. At work, my braid is neat and pretty, my curls are loose and shiny and my frizz is completely gone! Anyone who has the same issue as I had- you need to look into this product some more!

 

 

 

With the Semplifi Hair System, you can personalize it to your own hair need. So here is how I use the product:

  • 3 pumps of the Daily Renew Shampoo
  • 4 pumps of the Daily Plus conditioner + 3 pumps of Volume Plus serum
  • After showering, I spray the Style Plus all over my hair and comb through
  • Then I mix 1 pump of Volume Plus with 2 pumps of Moisture Plus and run my fingers through my hair.

I like to air dry my hair, so by using mixing the Volume and Moisture Plus together, my curls become loose, beautiful and frizz free.

All my goals have been met with Semplifi. My hair is controllable and has moisture without frizz. I also love how clean my hair always feels. I can say that I am satisfied with this product! I can even put my hair in one of my favorite clips- and it doesn’t look messy! DSC02903

 

It’s I Do for Khloe Kardashian

Ok, so we had to jump on the boat and talk about the biggest celebrity moment of the last two weeks- Khloe Kardashian marrying Lamar Oden. For as cautious as Khloe is with men, it has surprised most people that she was to wed so quickly. Regardless- we’re happy for her! Pictures of her wedding have not yet been released because she allowed the pics to go to the highest bidder- OK magazine. But here’s the pics we were able to find with the help of a few courtesy photogs:


Sisters gathered in purple waiting for the wedding to start.


Kelly Osbourne dressed in a lovely black and white patterned dress arrived to the wedding in classic Kelly style


Adrienne, who once dated Rob Kardashian, is still a great friend to the family and showed up glowing to the wedding.


A closer image of the bridesmaid dress that Kim and Malika were wearing for the wedding. The themed flowers appear to be all white roses.


Of course Ryan Seacrest was in attendance. Probably taking notes on the next reality series…

Now- what are your thoughts about the wedding?
