Only a few more weeks until spring is officially here (I know this because my brithday is also on the first day of spring: March 20th)...but with all the cold and snow yet to come I need a little bit of visual motivation to get my mind there. These dresses seem to do the trick!

Quilted Jacquard Flare Dress available at LOFT- $79.50

Swing Dress in Retro Floral Print available at ASOS- $46

Mara Hoffman- Fall 2015 RTW

What I love most about Mara Hoffman's collection is how wearable it really is. Bold prints that remind me of the southwest in the 1970's create a strong bohemian vibe that leaves me feeling so very happy. Here are some of my favorite pieces---

Christian Siriano- Fall 2015 RTW

Christian Siriano's collections are always one of my favorites. Year after year he comes through and amazes me with his creative genius. This year was all about funky prints (including animal), Pantone's color of the year, and beautiful choices of material (from silk to feathers to taffeta). This collection is all sorts of drama...but in the most ladylike way possible.


What do you think of Christian Siriano's latest collection?

Favorites: Red Lipstick

Pink may be my favorite color, but when it comes to lipstick red is my go to hue. I'm usually wearing red lipstick about 90% of the time...and even that isn't nearly enough. Since I often get asked what shade of lipstick I'm wearing, I thought it would be fun to put together my current five favorite lip colors that are in my makeup bag. What I love about all of these is how long they last. Long lasting red lipstick is super important to me! I don't want to be applying it every few hours.

To me this color is the purest red I have found. When you think red lips, you think Russian Red!

This is a brighter red with a slight orange tint to it. It instantly brightens up my face when I wear it.

This shade of red is leaning a little more to the violet and berry end of the spectrum. I wear this for a more dramatic and sultry look.

This feels like a gloss, but holds up like a stain. This shade of red leaves my lips looking like I just ate a bowl full of cherries.

When I really want bright and bold lips I wear this lip stain. This color literally lasts all day and it isn't drying like how stains typically are.


Do you have a favorite shade of red? Please share it in the comment section below...as I'm always wanting to try out new makeup (especially when they are recommended).
