Purple Haze- A product review

 So I'm taking a cue from my dear friend at Makeup Majesty and doing my first beauty product review!  Drum roll please...
Behold MAC Lipglass in All of My Purple Life!
I'm no stranger to MAC's lipglass and I've always been a big fan.  But last week I saw that they came out with limited edition colors in the lipglass and also eye shadows that were designed by a few lovely bloggers (how amazing would that be??).  I saw this bold purple and HAD to have it.  Fast forward 3 days (as they are online only and I had to wait for shipping) and here we are!  I adore the drama of this bright purple.  It is bold and fun without being too dark or goth for summer. Thank goodness I didn't hesitate because it is now sold out online!

Check out the other colors in the Bloggers Obsession line here before they are all gone!

Chloe Sevigny for O.C. Resort 2012

"Leather and lace are old pals. But leather that's lace? There's a naughty new friend. It figured prominently in Chloe Sevigny's latest collection for Opening Ceremony, which she showed for the first time ever in a runway presentation"   -Style.com

I super love this collection.  It was shown in the gym of a parish youth center and in my opinion captures youth perfectly in a grown up way.  And how FAB did she look?  Swoon.

CFDA Awards 2011

 Lady Gaga was honored at this year's CFDA Awards with the Fashion Icon Award and arrived in this custom Thierry Mugler dress.  (who doesn't love a studded thong?)  And because she's Gaga, her after party attire transformed into this.
 I can't much comment on how much I like the look, as I see it as mostly costume-y.  
But otherwise, here are some of my favorites from the night.
 Naturally MKA, but mostly MK in this case.
 Chloe Sevigny (in her Opening Ceremony line- Love)
 Karlie Kloss (in Jason Wu) and Jason Wu
Yigal Azrouel and Zuzanna Bijoch- loving the orange with pink accents and cutout details and dying over the shoes.
 Chanel Iman (in BCBG) the color and fit are to die.
 Miranda Kerr (in Michael Kors)- did she really just have a baby?  Please girl.

A Home for My Jewels

 As the size of my jewelry collection is ever increasing, my need to creatively store it all has needed to increase as well!
 I've kind of used my jewelry to 'decorate' my apartment in a way.  I like to look for old glass ash trays to keep jewelry in.  This one I got at a flea market.  And the hand I got at Urban Outfitters, perfect for rings.
 I found these glass fruit trays on ebay that have a few compartments to fabulously fit some stuff in.
My most recent addition has been to decorate my walls with necklaces using hooks and nails to drape them.  Best part is that it keeps them from getting all tangled up!  (All of these items are part of my CB designs collection available for purchase here)

What are your tricks for storing your jewels??

Friday Favorites

New Jeffrey Campbell 'Mention' Leopard flats.  I rarely wear flats, but I'll make an exception when they are this perfect.
 Now that I've mastered wearing heels with socks, these perfectly mismatched Happy Socks from Gargyle definitely require a place on my Happy Feet.  (seriously cute stuff on this site though!)
 Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty book from the Met exhibit.  Need inspiration?  Look no further.
 Awesome new bag of leather scraps I received from Etsy, can't wait to turn them into jewelry this weekend!  Yes I get terribly excited over a bag of someones leather scraps, hey it's the little things right?
 Tan Towels!  I don't know if these alone will make me 'Look Good Naked' but I do have a nice easy glow to start the summer off with them!
'I Don't Know' by Kassidy.  With all the hot girls and boys (the band dudes) in this video, I almost want to commit myself to a mental hospital.  But seriously, check it out, you'll love the song and be singing it all day!
