My inspiration - "The 1950's dress silhouette...."

"This will be my workhorse. I'll wear it with tights, heels, and an embellished belt at holiday parties, and a fitted denim jacket and flats in the spring."

preview + bright lips



"The pretty spring looks are officially here, and with them, the Nars lipstick du jour. The shade of the season is Heat Wave, a bold red-orange that's surprisingly wearable and looks good on everyone. Plus, it further confirms the beauty trend that was all over the runways: bright lips are it for Spring 2011."

bonus:


"Cheek stains are free of alcohol so they won't dry out your skin and oil so they won't clog your pores. They are infused with the tarte t5 super fruit complex™ for a healthy dose of natural antioxidants.

The tarte t5 super fruit complex™ is a proprietary blend of the five most active superfruits: goji, acai, maracuja, acerola and pomegranate. The first blend of its kind, the t5 super fruit complex™ is loaded with naturally occurring, antioxidant rich nutrients and vitamins that have been known to deliver refining, anti-aging and skin-restorative benefits with each application."
