How to style Transitional trends

Transitional trends

Happy New Year! This outfit is all about current street style trends. It's never too early to start thinking about transitioning to spring, and what better way to do that than with florals. This bell sleeve dress gives a 90's feel when worn with Doc Martin boots. A dark lipstick like MAC rebel also gives an edgy balance to the florals as well.

Review: Bumble and Bumble Air Styler creme

air styler creme

Everyone knows that French women never blow dry their hair and neither do I, perhaps for different reasons though. I'm always worried about the heat damaging my hair as well as sheer laziness. Of course I would love for my hair to still have the body of a blow out. I was excited when I came across this Bumble and Bumble product that promises the same texture and body without blow drying. After using it for a month I think my hair did have more texture and lift and it didn't feel like there was any product in it which is very important to me. Price wise it's about the same range as other Bumble and bumble products meaning it's a step up from drug store brands.

  • No heavy product feeling
  • Nice texture, very bouncy!
  • No heat!
  • Not sure if it really made my hair shinier
  • Still requires a good deal of time twisting and scrunching hair, not necessarily a time saver

The 6 most famous pieces of jewelry

November is National Real Jewelry Month so I thought it would be good to kick it off with a post dedicated to some of the most famous pieces of jewelry.

Princess Diana's engagement ring, given to her by Prince Charles is a large sapphire surrounded by diamonds. It was given to Kate Middleton (now the Duchess of Cambridge) when Prince William proposed.

Another famous bauble belonging to a British royal is this leopard bracelet that belonged to the Duchess of Windsor.

Everyone knows that Elizabeth Taylor was obsessed with jewelry. This pearl, ruby and diamond necklace contains a pear-shaped pearl that was discovered in the 16th century. Designed by Elizabeth Taylor with the help of Al Durante of Cartier, this piece was another gift from Richard Burton on January 23, 1969. But how did Taylor get her hands on a 16th century pearl? Originally found in the early 1500s in the Gulf of Panama, it became part of the crown jewels of Spain. From there it was given as wedding gift from Prince Philip II of Spain to Mary Tudor of England. It was then passed down to Spanish queens Margarita and Isabella. But it wasn't until 1969 that Burton famously purchased the pearl—for a relative steal at just $37,000—for Taylor. Christie's estimated the necklace's worth at $2 million to $3 million.

Empress Eugenie
The Louvre paid almost $11 million dollars for this piece! Empress Eugenie's bow brooch is a sensational antique diamond piece made in 1855. Originally intended to be a buckle for a diamond belt—you know, something simple—Eugenie wound up asking her jewelers to make it more elaborate and into a brooch!
Designed by Jean Schlumberger for Tiffany & Co. the stars and moon necklace is gorgeous. The center diamond is an impressive 5.29 carats and has 586 diamonds set in platinum surrounding it. The total carat count for the necklace is 127.86. And you can purchase it for $2.8 million from Tiffany.

Found in South Africa in 1877, Tiffany & Co.'s iconic 128 carat yellow diamond is on permanent display in the company's Fifth Avenue store in NYC. But Audrey Hepburn briefly wore the staggering gem in publicity photos for Breakfast at Tiffany's.

Ankle strap flats

ballet flats

These easy to wear shoes are my favorite thing ever since the strap really adds a little something to the boring ballet flat. Best to wear them while you still can before it get too cold!

Halloween Costume: the Chanels

scream queens

Halloween is my favorite holiday and I am all about creating costumes from items you already have/will wear again in everyday life. This year I am also obsesses with the new horror/comedy Scream Queens, and the baddest sorority clique ever, The Chanels.

The group wears primarily pastels, making the look easy to achieve. Chanel Oberlin, the leader, is known for her big dark sunglasses. Another main point which is really fun is the outrageous furs the girls wear. Chanel #3 wears earmuffs while #5 routinely wears pearls. The outfits are always fashion forward with extremely girly details like florals and frills. Happy Halloween Scream Queens!
