Fashion's Night Out Cancelled

Last night when I was watching the news they were talking about how this year's Fashion's Night Out will be cancelled. WHAT??? I have to say I'm so disappointed. Especially since I just moved back to NYC, I was really looking forward to attending this fall. And the cancellation is not just happening here in NYC...but throughout the entire country. 

Last year the violence was getting a little out of control in Manhattan during this annual event. So I guess when you take that into consideration, it's better safe than sorry...right? But, I think there must be some way to meet in the middle. What are your thoughts on this cancellation? Do you think stopping the event was the best thing to do?

What They Should Be Wearing To The Oscars

Can you believe that Academy Awards are on tomorrow night? Typically I watch them...and I probably will this year too (or at least a little bit of it). I do have a few gripes about the Oscars:

1) They last FOREVER...
2) I haven't seen any of the movies.
3) It's on when one of my favorite shows is on (Girls).
4) The speeches are boring.
5) Did I say it lasts forever???

The part of this award show that is my favorite starts before the actual show. I'm talking about the red carpet! Isn't that the real reason we all tune in anyway? You gotta see the dresses!

I thought it would be fun to pick dresses that I feel the Hollywood starlets should be wearing...and then tune in to see if I'm right. Here are my picks for this year:

Anne Hathaway in Christian Dior Spring 2013 Couture

Amy Adams in Valentino Spring 2013 Couture

Jennifer Lawrence in Oscar de la Renta Fall 2013 Ready-To-Wear

Jessica Chastain in Giambattista Valli Spring 2013 Couture

Naomi Watts in Jenny Packham Fall 2013 Ready-To-Wear

What do you think of my dress picks? I am seriously in love with that bright pink Oscar de la Renta dress...and would be so happy if anyone would wear it there. What do you think the stars should be wearing on their big night???

Will you be watching the awards or just the red carpet?

Cover Story

Grab your passports! We are taking a little trip around the world to check out some of the international magazine covers that are currently on Vogue for March 2013. I just love seeing how different they all are, and how fashion and style differs throughout the world. Let's take a look---

What's Black And White And Red All Over?

So my weekend is turning out to be 100% not as I planned. I have to admit, I am a big time planner. This is definitely one of the things that is different between myself and my husband, as well as most of my friends. They like to fly by the seat of their pants...and that just gives me anxiety. 

skirt- Express
belt- H&M
tights- ?
necklace- gift
boots- Dr. Martens

Today my plans have already changed three times...and it is not even 2pm! Here to hoping my plans stick for this evening, or I'm going to be bummed. As of now it looks like my husband and I are going to head our for a local raw bar happy hour and then off to dinner. Sounds like a good evening to me!

What are you doing this weekend? Are you a planner, or do you just like to go with the flow?

Elizabeth Anne Shoes

Have you ever gone somewhere and wished that you didn't have to haul your purse along with you? Maybe your husband doesn't want to hang on to your handbag while you are out shopping at the mall. Or think about that Saturday night out dancing with your don't want to have to worry about your purse. Well Elizabeth Anne Shoes has just invented the first "purse for your feet" calling them "Purse n' Boots". These chic boots are known for their hidden pockets that can hold your credit cards, money, makeup, and even your cell phone (new styles even come with passport pockets). These innovative boots are also known for their high quality leather making them comfortable and long lasting.

"Purse n' Boots" is the creation of 28-year-old Elizabeth Anne LeGear from Vancouver, BC. The idea for these fabulous boots came to her when she was out at a nightclub and went to grab her cell phone from the inside of her boots when the bartender complimented her on the idea of storing her phone in her knee high boots and said she will try doing the same thing too. It was then that the idea to put pockets into boots came about.

Be sure to stop by Elizabeth Anne Shoes to check out her collection (personally I am in love with The European style), as well as their Facebook page. Which pair is your favorite? What do you think of this creative idea?

Too Cool For Tulle

Okay, well not really too cool for tulle. More like, I'm obsessed with this new dress I picked up at H&M last weekend. Can you believe I got it for $10? Love it!!! The tulle overlay makes me feel like a ballerina. I just want to spin around and dance in it...too bad we aren't going out tonight. Oh well...till next time!

Boy Meets Girl NYFW Fall 2013

This afternoon was a blast at the Boy Meets Girl show downtown. I'm sure some of you saw pictures I was taking on my Instagram feed. I got to do some celebrity gawking while I was there, enjoyed Leah Labelle's performance, and was even able to nab a seat before the show started.

Stop on over to my Google+ to see a quick video from the show. It's not the best quality because it's from my phone...but the show was great so it's worth a watch!  :-)

Anastasia Beverly Hills: Bold & Beautiful Kit

Anastasia Beverly Hills has a new makeup kit available: the Bold & Beautiful Kit. This kit comes complete with two sets. The Bold Brows set has Brow Powder, Pomade, Mini Duo Brush, and Mini Tweezers which allow you to sculpt, define, and beautifully layer color for perfect brows. The Beautiful Eyes set comes complete with four matte and shimmering shadows in versatile neutrals are the perfect shades to finish any look. 

This amazing set will be available at ULTA, Nordstrom, Sephora US, and Sephora Canada (retailing $36). I have to say, Anastasia Beverly Hills always impresses me with their amazing kits. I am obsessed with their shadows. I love to wear the colors layered on and rim my eyes with wet sparkly shadows. When wet their shadows go on as perfectly as liquid liner. I love it!

Below you will find a quick tutorial for the Bold & Beautiful Kit. Be sure to check it out!!!

Beauty Buzz: My New Favorite Lipstick

A few weeks ago I saw a commercial for Revlon cosmetics starring Olivia Wilde. She was wearing Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suede lipcolor...and the shade she had on was so pretty it literally stopped me in my tracks. Typically commercials don't make me rush out to buy a product...but I had to have this!

I adore long wear lipcolor, but what I hate is when you get a color that looks awful and it's stuck on your lips for 12-24 hours. I thought I'd bite the bullet and try the exact same color (Backstage) that Olivia had on in the campaign. It's a bit darker (like a deep wine color) than I typically wear...but such a great shade!

What I really love about this lipcolor is just how flawless the coverage is. It lasts all day, the color is intense, and it's not sticky or drying. Best of all there are 20 you will most certainly find one that works for you!

Have you tried this product yet? What are your thoughts on it?

Jen Hsieh and Cynthia Richardson

I will be emailing the two of you shortly with further instructions.

Springing Into Spring

One thing I never understood is Groundhog Day. People stand out in the cold to see if Punxsutawney Phil  (or even the local Staten Island Chuck) will see his shadow to predict six more weeks of winter, or not see his shadow forecasting six weeks till spring. This year Phil and Chuck both predict only six weeks until, if they want to say spring will be here soon (?) I'll take it!

dress- LC Lauren Conrad (Kohl's)
sweater- ?
tights- gift
boots- Candie's

I figured I might as well celebrate today by wearing one of my favorite spring dresses. How I just love floral frocks for the springtime! Don't you? The fact that it is only in the 20's today made me have to throw on some extra layers to warm it up a bit. Tossing on a sweater, some tights, and knee high boots makes any spring/summer dress winter ready.

I believe I got this dress a few seasons ago so it is no longer available. But be sure to check out LC Lauren Conrad's dress collection that she currently has at Kohl's. Through March 9th be sure to use the promo code TENFORBLOG to receive an extra 10% off your Kohl's purchase. You can even use it to stack savings with one other code as well.

Happy Groundhog Day from me and my Rocko dog! Are you celebrating today?  :-)
