Cosmetic Obsessions

22 Nov

As I have returned home I have come across some new product obsessions that I must share…


New favorite products:


Eve Lom has been voted by Vogue as “the best cleanser probably ever”. This cleanser may seem a bit daunting at first because it comes with a list of instructions for use, but they are worth the results. This cleanser works with a Muslin cloth that comes with it to exfoliate and remove all traces of makeup in the skin. This mask is best used once a week and promises to remove all impurities and make skin glow. Ren moisturizer is a great basic moisturizer that won’t clog pores and leaves skin feeling extra soft.

New Favorite Makeup:

I was a Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer addict but I am a turncoat. This Bobbi Brown moisturizing foundation provides miraculous results and only takes seconds to put on. It comes with a sponge as well which makes it easy to bring out for touch ups. This Bobbi Brown shimmer brick is not only fun looking but it makes your skin have a very pretty iridescent glow. Its a great stocking stuffer or holiday gift for a friend.



Winter Formals

11 Nov

Winter formals are coming up and finding the perfect dress can be a feat. Sebastian and Lily has you covered on some of this seasons top dresses


This Lovers and Friends dress has a very cool open back. Its gold sequins are sure to make you stand out in a crowd. Pair it with simple shoes such as these black Rachel Zoe pumps.

This Finders Keepers dress is very unique and great for the winter season. It is casual enough to go out but paired with the right accessories it is a great party dress. Pair it with neutral pumps like these patent Vera Wang lavender label ones that are on sale!

This sequin Parker dress is my favorite with its amazing shape. It is short but the hight neck and dolman sleeve make this conservative enough for a family party which makes it multi-functional.  Pair this with some black wedges like these amazing Rachel Zoe ones.

Fall Blouses

13 Sep

This Equipment blouse is great tucked into high waisted shorts or thrown on with a pair of jeans and flats. The jeans are grey denim jeans by James Jeans. These gold Chloe scalloped flats are adorable and are complemented by gold Swarovski Bijoux Heart earrings.

I love the ruffle detailing and tie waist on this silk blouse as well as the versatility of the color. The denim is black and is made by Ksubi- these jeans can be worn over and over again and do not fray or fade in color- a great staple pant for anyone. This YSL snake cuff is very cool and would work great with this simple yet sophisticated outfit.The flats are Missoni, I have featured them before, but now they are 30% off!

These light was denim jeans are by Ksubi, one of my favorite denim companies- they have very unique detailing on the back. The blouse is by Tucker and would look great with white pants in the spring and summer seasons or darker denim for other seasons. Finish off the look with some gold chandelier earrings to dress it up a bit.

Naven Dresses

29 Aug

Naven is one of my favorite companies for dresses.The colors are amazing and each color dress comes in a variety of flattering styles.


This Orange Naven dress is paired with a House of Harlow gold cuff and some neutral wedges with gold accenting.

This hot pink number is great for going out but can be turned into a casual look for work if paired with flats. The necklace is Tom Binns and is fabulously colorful- make sure to keep the shoes neutral otherwise this look could be  a bit over the top.

This last look is a bit more casual-great for a night out or a nice dinner. The Wedges are Chloe and are versatile and comfortable. These earrings are DANNIJO and could be paired with even a plain shirt and jeans for a daytime look.



21 Aug

Fall is here and finding the perfect pair of fall boots can be difficult. Short or long? Black or brown? Suede or leather?



The first pair of boots are Pour La Victoire and they are a great black leather riding boot. If brown is more your style, these classic tall FRYES are great. The last pair is JCrew and the color of leather is unique and hard to find.



The first pair are the classic FRYE engineer boots. The second are Jeffrey Campbell and come in both black and brown leather. The last are FRYE, come in several colors and are on sale!

Fall Jackets

16 Aug

The fall season is approaching so finding that perfect fall jacket is on everyones mind…Sebastian and Lily will direct you to the best choices for whatever your favorie jacket style is. Jackets are one of my favorite wardrobe staples to invest in. My go to brands for jackets include 3.1 Phillip Lim, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Rebecca Taylor, Nanette Lepore and Barbour.  When looking for a great jacket the most important factors to consider are cut, detailing and wearability. There is no point of investing in a jacket that is not cohesive with the style of the rest of your wardrobe or does not flatter your shape. Although I do recommend spending a good amount of your fall wardrobe budget on your jacket- there are more affordable jackets that are similar in style but are made from cheaper fabrics.


Leather Jackets:

Duffle/Pea Jackets:

The first is a classic Burberry duffle coat. The second is an  ASOS jacket and  is much more affordable and features a fabulous fur trim. It comes in navy which is even cuter.


I tend to gravitate towards brown leather jackets because I think they are more wearable and less harsh than black leather. The first leather jacket is ASOS. The second is Vince and is on sale- it is a great quality and tone of leather. I love the femininity of this BB Dakota one featuring ruffles and is at a great price point.


This first coat is just peachy-it would add tons of color for fall or winter over a beautiful dress and heels. The second coat is a Burberry coat that would work as a day coat and double as an overcoat. The last is my favorite- it is Red Valentino and the bow is just adorable. The look is classic and feminine and this coat would last a lifetime.

Fall Statement Necklaces

12 Aug

Statement necklaces are a go to accessory for all seasons-these are some new ones for fall that are sure to spice up your wardrobe.


This wooden bauble necklace is a great daytime statement necklace. I would pair it with a neutral shirt and some colored jeans such as these lavender ones.

This Marni necklace is amazing for daytime as well as night time. The outfit is simple-a grey open back Alexander Wang top would work perfectly with the pastel tones of the necklace.

I love the look of a statement necklace over sailor stripes. Pair this bib over some sailor stripes and add some flats in a similar tone of the necklace and you have a put together daytime look-adorable.
