It's time for another SoCal Blogger Society monthly link up and this month the linkup theme is "Favorite Fall Handbag." Well if you know me, you know I don't just have one favorite handbag, I like to mix it up so for this link up I decided to share five of my handbags that I love and that are perfect for fall. You have seen these on the blog before but I decided I couldn't just pick one so I picked five! Make sure to either link up below or head on over to SoCal Blogger Society's page and link up with all the gals and share your favorite fall handbag! Hope everyone is having a great Tuesday!
With fashion week fresh on everyone's mind I actually knew who I was going to pick for this month's stylish girl of the month pretty early on in the month, which if you know me, that never happens. Kendall Jenner is the world's like hottest model right now as she has walked some of the biggest designers runways including DVF and Dolce and Gabanna. Being that she is half Kardashian makes it obvious she has incredible style and with those legs for days she has, she is the only reason reasonable and obvious pick for September's Stylish Girl of the Month! I love Kendall's style because while she is more of a monochromatic type of girl, she does mix it up with pops of color here and there but knows her signature style and wears it so perfectly!
From left to right:
Kendall wore this risque yet gorgeous Fausto Puglisi gown to host the MMA Awards back in June.
Kendall is white hot in this Oriett Domenech top and pants
Kendall really pulls off the pant suit well and this Alon Livne jumpsuit seen at the VMAs in August is no exception!
Another fantastic black and white ensemble on Kendall, this time Opening Ceremony
This is one of my favorite looks, this electric blue Olcay Gulsen blazer and pants!
I love how Kendall wore this hi to low look with a Barbara Bui blazer, Hudson jeans and H&M shoes!
I couldn't be any happier that today is Friday! It has been a lonnnnng and stressful week. I am super excited because my best friend is coming in for the weekend for a girls weekend and I can't wait to spend some much needed r&r with my best! Hope everyone has a stylish and relaxing weekend, I hear its finally going to cool down here in SoCal! yay!
If you ask me, leopard print can never get old if worn correctly. When I saw on the runway back in February that leopard print was still going to be a hot trend for fall I was so excited because I didn't nearly get to add enough of it to my wardrobe last year. PopSugar puts the trend as "ladylike leopard" which I love because you want to make sure you don't go overboard with leopard, keeping it ladylike and classy is a must. Even small hints of leopard are just as stylish! I decided to scour the web for some fun ladylike leopard printed items that are a must have for fall.
Happy first day of fall! While this outfit might not be very fall it is for a "Southern California" fall! The weather has been absolutely beautiful the last few days and I am hoping it stays that way for awhile! I love this maxi dress because it fits perfectly but the side slit adds a fun surprise of sexy to the classic piece! I have already worn it twice and get so many compliments on it and its such a great staple piece! Thanks to Wendy for shooting these awesome pictures! Hope everyone has a fantastic Tuesday!
Fashion Week has already left London and is Milan and soon will be in Paris! While I have recapped the beauty trends I have yet to do my classic favorite looks from the runway post so I am excited today to share my favorite looks from across London and Milan Fashion Week! Its all about pastels and fun prints for Spring 2015. Feminine looks were common too! The trends always range from designer to mainstream, so I am excited to see how the brands we all love and wear will interpret the trends! Here are some of my favorite looks from the shows in London and Milan. Kendall Jenner is definitely a designer favorite, which I am totally okay with!
This week was one of those weeks where I felt like I just didn't stop, I have actually felt like that since Sunday. I am SO glad tomorrow is Friday and I can have a semi relaxing weekend of just catching up on sleep and running errands! Hope everyone else has a fantastic weekend!
This past Sunday I hosted another brunch for SoCal Blogger Society. We ventured back to Venice to Primitivo Wine Bistro on Abbot Kinney for a fall-tastic morning of brunching and blogging. While it was hotter than hell that day, the girls braved the heat and we ended up having a wonderful morning! It was so awesome to finally meet some of the ladies I have been chatting with for so long! Wendy was there to shoot the entire thing and while all of us were dying of heat stroke, we posed for pixs. Please ignore the frizzy hair and wrinkled dress in my shots, the heat is to blame entirely! Thanks to Primitivo for hosting us and thanks to all the girls who attended!
I seem like a never ending struggle I have is keeping my teeth super white. While I avoid soda I am a coffee addict and drink wine so keeping my teeth consistently white is a struggle. I have basically tried every single whitening system there is it feels like and while they work for a short time, my teeth go right back to being white. I was getting to the point where I was going to go to my dentist and just get bleach trays since that was the only method I haven't tried until I found NovaWhite. NovaWhite is a Professional At-Home Teeth Whitening System. This system uses the same solution that dentists use but is practically half the price! I always had the issues that my teeth would get SUPER sensitive when I used any whitening strips and this was the first system I used that I had no sensitivity. NovaWhite's SuperNova and Go Kits ($54.00) come with all whitening necessities: generic or customized whitening trays, whitening gel solution, lip balm, breath spray, wash cloth and travel bag. I got the chance to try out the customized whitening trays and can I say I already see a difference just after one use! You fit the trays to your mouth by the boil and bite method and the trays literally are molded exactly to your mouth in minutes! Using the pre measured gel you squeeze them into the trays and leave them on for about an hour and voila, whiter teeth! It was the absolute perfect quick fix for me. I was so excited in the beginning to use it that I forgot to take a before picture , but if you look at my past outfit shots, you can tell my teeth definitely needed some whitening love. Below is my after shot and I am so pleased with the results and definitely will continue to use this system! (mind the horrible pix quality and my messy hair!)
I have more great news! NovaWhite is offering Stylelista Confessions readers 15% and off their online purchases using STYLELISTA15. If you are looking for a quick and affordable way to whiten your teeth without the annoying sensitivity, definitely pick up Nova White!
So until next time.... Live Stylishly
Thank you to NovaWhite for sponsoring this post! All opinions are 100% my own. All images credit NovaWhite.
Happy Tuesday! Super excited to be co-hosting with Paige from Life's a Party, Dress Like It in her weekly link up cleverly titled "Stylish Tuesday." While it might be a million degrees here in SoCal and the thought of wearing anything with sleeves right now is murder, I can't get enough of this dress! I love the pattern for fall and paired with this navy crossbody, its the perfect day to to night look. Thanks to the wonderful Wendy for snapping these awesome pictures! Hope everyone is having a great week so far! Make sure to link up below and thanks for stopping by :)
I know I haven't been reporting on any fashion week trends, but I promise I didn't forget and am going to give you my usual NYFW beauty round up of the hot trends we are most likely to see in Spring 2015! NYFW was another incredible week of fashion and beauty and we saw tons of trends I can't wait to sport in the coming months. I broke it down in three groups, hair, makeup and nails.
A HUGE trend I saw at NYFW with makeup was the "natural" look, meaning sans mascara, liner, shadow etc) which I am all for!
While the natural style was a popular one, I did see another trend that I am definitely interested to see if it catches on. Glittery facial embellishments of all shapes and forms were a popular trend. From stars to chunks of glitter or eyebrow rings, embellishments weren't just seen on clothing this season.
The third trend that was common was bold lids. While last season it was bold lips the bright neon colors have moved up the eyelids and are definitely going to be a huge trend for spring 2015! I personally love the neon blues, it definitely is daring but stylish!
Braids seem to be coming back season after season, which I am totally okay with! From messy loose braids to tight fishtail braids, braids were all over!
I wear this next trend so often I am so excited I am the actually ahead of the game this time! Low ponytails were a frequent hair style but with messy
My favorite part of this recap is obviously the nails! Like some of the makeup we saw on the runway, the nail trends were also very simple yet chic. Simple sophisticated nail art was what we saw. Solid colors with one nail with art and monochromatic styles was all the rage in NYC.
