Trend: Paneled Dresses

Paneled dresses are so hot right now - and uber flattering! It slims your silhouette and gives you curves just where you need them. #3 is my favorite, since it incorporates another trend for Fall, leather. Read more about the leather trend here.

Polished for Fall

Fall is fabulous for so many reasons (fashion and football, namely) but also for the transition from bright polishes to muted ones. I've never been one who loves a bright color on my hand, so I gladly welcome when darks are becoming appropriate again. Here are the colors you'll find on me this Fall...

Leather, Leather Everywhere!

Leather is one of the season's hottest materials - I've already added a few pieces to my closet, have you? Whether it's real or faux, the texture of the sleek and soft material pairs well with everything! See how some celebs rocked it during NYFW.

NYFW: BCBG Max Azria

The photos from the BCBG show incorporated a lot of black and white, and a lot of harnesses. That's right, 50 Shades of Grey is now inspiring ready-to-wear. What do you think of this trend? Do you think it will be big for spring, or just on the runways?

Review: Rosewater Balancing Mist + Giveaway

After reading that Mario Dedivanovic (Kim Kardashian's makeup artist) uses Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist on his clients, I knew I had to try it. Because let's face it, KK's makeup always looks flawless. It took a little getting used to how far your arm has to be away from your face before you spray, to ensure you get an even amount everywhere, but I really do enjoy it. It's refreshing and provides a great dewy look that we all long for. WhoWhatWear Beauty wrote a piece on what face mists actually do, check it out here.


SkinCareRX has offered a $20 gift card for use at one of their three websites (SkinCareRX, Apothica, skinbotanica) to one of my readers! In addition to the Rosewater Mist, they also carry some of the best moisturizers. To enter, visit one of their sites and provide the link to the item you'd love to try in the comment section, along with your email address. A winner will be announced on 9/14. For extra entries:

Disclosure: SkinCareRX provided me with a gift card that I used to purchase the Rosewater Mist, however, the opinions are my own.
