Pick-Me-Up: NARS Red Lizard Lipstick

***Image is from http://www.refinery29.com/***

I was reading an article about the red lips trend on Refinery29.com and decided to try it out with one of the recommended colors: NARS Red Lizard. The idea is to wear this red anywhere and at anytime of the day. I can't tell you how many compliments I've received and how many girls asking me for the deets on my lipstick! This is one of the truest reds that I've come across and it has worked on both my fair-skinned and darker-skinned friends. It will give your pout a super saturated, semi-matte look that says: "I may not be speaking but I want you to know that I'm here."

A Handbag Revelation: Celine S/S 2010

I'm not much of a handbag person. In fact, I always carry the same black Chanel bag with everything even if it doesn't match. I have never felt the urge to run out and buy the latest "It" bag mainly because (1) handbag prices have really gone through the roof these days and (2) I can't imagine switching up bags every so often. However, I was taking a spin around the first floor at Barneys the other day and really fell in love with the Celine Spring 2010 handbag collection! This particular style (which I think is called Luggage) is tres chic--timeless yet edgy--and the quality looks to be high in caliber. That Phoebe Philo really has the golden touch when it comes to reviving a dusty French fashion house!

Mayfair Lady

Here's a pic of me in Mayfair from a recent trip to London. There was a time when I would never wear an outfit like this--button-down shirt, vintage Lacoste sweater and jeans. I was somewhat of a tomboy growing up and when I moved to New York I wanted to only wear heels and channel Carrie Bradshaw as much as possible. An outfit like this, to me at the time, was too boring. I would be self-conscious that I looked too "masculine". As I think about it more, this is the kind of outfit that represents my everyday personal style in the truest way: comfy with a twist (just add red lipstick, a fab scarf, heels, and a Chanel bag haha). Funny when I think back to all of the style barriers that I imposed on myself.

eBay Find: Balenciaga Modern Grey Top

I must be in a major Balenciaga state of mind lately. I got this great Balenciaga top on eBay recently. Simple but very modern. I think it will work with skinny black pants and sky-high heels--like anything else, I suppose :)
