LOVE.. it can take you on a journey like no other.  There are highs and lows and lessons to be learned but what we make of it is personal and unique.  It’s an emotion that we all have in our hearts and to live without it is nearly impossible.  Today’s look was inspired by Rihanna’s video, ‘We found love’.

MAC: Soft Brown/Embark/Vanilla

On my lips:

MAC Burgundy lip liner under Revlon Matte Really Red

On my cheeks:

Maybelline blush in light pink

Have a BEAUTYful day!!!

OutSTANDING Color!

5 Dec

Color carries a very powerful meaning.  It often shows our emotions and displays our personality.  This season, break out of that little black dress and flatter yourself with bright bold colors.  This coral and cream Marisa dress from KocoSky is a lovely little number, sure to spark interest.  You’ll be glowing with confidence.

Marisa

It’s a light and airy dress with volumes of feminine appeal.  If your wondering what kind of shoes to pair it with, try neutrals. It’ll elongate your legs and let the dress speak for itself.

Jimmy Choo ‘Koko’-$1,150- Nordstorm

I love the Jimmy Choo!  I think the subtle neutral combined with the gold trim is perfect. It would also go great with gold accessories.

LAMB Kam shoe-$145.99(sale) Zappos

You can’t go wrong with a pair of neutral leather sling backs. This is a great pair that will take you through the summer.

Lumiani ‘Ko’-$99-Zappos

If you prefer a closed toe, a soft suede shoe like the Lumiani ‘Ko’ works great too.

Mark and James’Malana’-$179-Zappos

If you prefer a black heel, try a strappy sandal. I’d pair this with a black clutch trimmed with gold detail and gold earrings.

SIZE does MATTER!

5 Dec

The holiday season is in full swing and party dates are flooding our calendars.  Pick out that perfect dress and don’t forget to pair it with a clutch that compliments. An evening soiree doesn’t require us to carry much so a small clutch is appropriate. This slinky animal print is one of my favorites.  It pairs impeccably with a little black dress and its metallic shine dresses up any look. It also has a removable chain that can be left on and draped over your shoulder.

 This snake print clutch is a medium size that can be unfolded and held by its oval handles.It’s perfect for those that require a bit more space for their necessities and can easily go from day to night. The subtle print creates a gentle texture against any plain back drop.  I’d pair this with the Claire sweater dress and a pair of knee-high boots.

 If you desire an edgy flare, let me introduce you to your next love affair.  This zipper trimmed clutch comes equipped with versatility and glam appeal.  I’d pair this with the Khris, Judy or even an open sweater cardigan.  It’s a timeless clutch you’ll reach for year after year.

Some of us are guilty of packing our purses full of unnecessary necessities and there may be times when you need to carry a little extra but for evenings out, a small clutch is all you need.  It’s perfect for your currency, pda, lipstick and keys.  A clutch can also come in handy for day outings.  It’s an easy way to change up your casual day time look. When choosing your clutch, keep size, shape and color in mind.  It’s definitely a functional piece that doubles as an accessory.

The clutches above will be available soon on KocoSky.com

Happy Holidays!!!  Keep it GLAM…its the perfect season to shine!
