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

Static: It doesn’t come from your favorite sweater September 16, 2009

The fall season, means great fall fashions. Unfortunately, most of those fashions; cardigans, sweaters and long sleeved shirts, aren’t compatible with battling static. Did you know that static doesn’t actually come from your favorite sweater? Al Melchiorre, owner of de’-al salon in Wichita, Kan. and co-creator of the Semplifi Hair System is here to tell you why!

Q: Why is it that I battle with static, especially in the fall and winter months?

Al: The elements know when to attack and around winter you hair is under attack because of the constant battle between cold weather and heating systems. When you are outside you are exposed to cool air that has some moisture in it, when you walk inside your heated home then all the moisture is sucked out of the air. Therefore, your hair reacts with static.

Another reason this happens is from the common battle between product and environment. Products build on top of your hair and the environment is still sneaking into the cuticle. Therefore you need a product that will penetrate the cuticle. Of course I mean the  Semplifi Hair System.

How to use: Shampoo like normal. Then with the Daily Plus Conditioner, add a couple pumps of Volume Plus and lather together. That will give your hair volume and moisture but no static. After showering apply the Style Plus spray just to help maintain frizz.

These products working together in tandem will penetrate the cuticle, fill it and block any other elements from penetrating. In return you can go from cold to hot environments as often as you please! Also, quit blaming your sweater! It’s the environment! You can wear your clothing with out fear of what it will do to your hair style that day.

Flat iron woes September 7, 2009

Al Melchiorre, owner of de’-al salon in Wichita, KS and co-creator of Semplifi Hair Systems, is here to answer your hair questions!

Q: How come I use the flat iron and it seems like my hair is smoking?

Al: Just like if anything smokes, it’s burning! Now I’m not going to tell you to stop using your flat iron, but the reason why it burns your hair is because of the products that are on your hair. Even if you just washed your hair with shampoo and condioner, you are putting heat to the product build up you have already created.

To safely use your flat iron with out burning your hair you need to use a product that won’t build up on your hair shaft.

My suggestion Semplifi Hair System. Shampoo and Condition as normal. Use the Style Plus spray while blow drying or air drying your hair in order to protect from heat and the elements. Then before flat ironing, put a couple of pumps of moisture plus in your hands and run your fingers through your hair. Brush your hair out and then begin flat ironing. After doing so, you will notice there wasn’t any smoke and your hair is soft and shiny afterward!

How does this work? Easy, Semplifi doesn’t create product build up because it can’t. It’s not designed to sit on the hair follicle, it is meant to penetrate the cuticle and repair from the inside out while protecting the hair from harsh elements and of course, heat!
