Statement Outerwear!

Hi, fashionistas!

As usual, I’ve been researching fashion trends and I’ve come up with my must-have list for fall and winter outerwear. These statement pieces are sure to get attention and double takes. Cool, right? Here’s some of my favorites:

The "I NEED IT!" Outerwear

  • Trench Coat with Studs: The studs add an unexpected edge to the classic trench. It’s a great idea for a night out or a special day!
  • Faded Denim Jacket With Lots of Rips: This is perfect for the cool vibe you need for a school day or even a trip to the mall or movie!
  • Words on the Back of Jackets: This is a fun idea for any day and event! Put it over a tee, sweater, or a casual dress for a graphic take on the classic denim or leather jacket.
  • Fitted Letterman Jackets: This is a super cute take on the oh-so-preppy football team jacket! If you’re aiming for the prepster look or are just looking to add some prep to your style, I suggest this! You can wear it to school, the mall, the movies, or on a casual weekend with friends, but maybe not on a first date.
  • A Polka Dot Trench With a Colorful Collar: I could see me wearing this coat when I’m feeling happy or just need a little whimsy in my day. Even in the girly, pink color, it would look great at a semi-formal party or special event. Trust me, you’ll be happy you bought it.
  • Stained Leather and Vegan Leather Jackets: Whether the jackets are a rainbow or deep red color, they’re awesome! These jackets are immensely popular for fall and winter, because of the unique treatment of the leather. You can wear them to semi-formal events, the mall, or even to the movies!

So, that’s my take on the top trend of statement outerwear! Would you wear statement outerwear or do you think it’s too bold? Let me know in the comments below! I want to know your thoughts! Until my next post, fashionistas! I love my lovely readers! Goodbye for now!

GET GRAPHIC!

Hi, fashionistas!

Hallways tend to be pretty boring with the plain walls and all, so add some umph by wearing graphic tops and pants! Who knows, you may even spark a new trend at your school!  Be that trendsetter. I know you are, fashionista!

Get Graphic! - Tee's
Get Graphic! - Pants

Get Graphic! – Pants by theteenrunway11 featuring highwaist pants

You can wear a pair of pants with a geometric design or maybe a top with a cool lion head against a black background. Both of them are edgy, yet both are unique.

Well, that’s all for this post, fashionistas! Until my next one! Thank you for reading, and I love you guys so much!

PROM 2013 OUTFIT!

Hi, fashionistas!

I’m so excited to say that PROM is coming up! How exciting is that? Even if you aren’t going to Prom (like me), it’s always fun to fantasize what your dress would look like, what shoes you would wear, and what jewelry would be so chic! I always pictured my outfit to be a show-stopper (aka wowing everyone there)! I can’t wait until my first Prom!

Ok, now time to get down to business. Let’s talk price. This dress is only $36! Yes, I said $36! Score! The earrings are a steal, too! They are priced at $15! Now for the expensive part. I think shoes and clutches should be more expensive than jewelry or dresses, because you can reuse them multiple times with different outfits! Another tip is to get semi-classic shapes and details so you can wear them even more! The heels are $135, and the clutch is $398. I know, I know. This clutch is super pricy, but imagine the future possibilities! If you want to opt for a lower priced clutch similar to the one pictured below, click here!

Here’s the outfit I created on Polyvore (you can shop from this photo):

Prom Outfit 2013 and Hair!
I also put a picture of a celeb wearing a beautiful hair style. I think it gives this look another formal and party-ready touch!

Natural Makeup Look and Product Reviews!

Hi, fashionistas!

I’m so excited to write this post, because I used my new camera to take these photos! I usually use my iPhone as my camera, but this one is so much better! I’m also excited, because I’ve been wearing this look or a similar look almost everyday recently! It’s very simple and easy. I’ve put together my reviews of all the makeup products I used for this look! They’re very informative! Let’s get started:

DETAILS and REVIEWS:

For my eyeshadow, I wore Lancôme eyeshadow in “Classy Stiletto”. It’s a really natural shade, but is build-able for a night look. It also has some shimmer which gives it dimension. For my eyeshadow primer, I wore Urban Decay Primer Potion in “Sin”. It’s great for making colors pop, and also adds a bit of shimmer as well. Normally, I would wear a light, shimmery eyeshadow on my brow bone, but I thought this eye look didn’t need it.

The two mascaras I used were from the brands YSL and Clinique. The YSL mascara is a regular formulated one and the Clinique one is waterproof. I used the YSL mascara for lengthening, but it tends to flake off, so I put the Clinique mascara over it just to make sure it wouldn’t fall under my eyes. Who wants that? I sure don’t! At the end of the lash-fest, I put the Clinique mascara on my bottom lashes. All in all, a great combo!

My foundation is from the brand Revlon and the name of the type is “ColorStay”. I chose the one for oily and combination skin, because, well, I’m a teen. That’s my all-time favorite foundation! I love it so much, because it covers really well, it’s natural looking, and lasts a long time (all day)! It also doesn’t make my face greasy which is a great factor in picking a foundation.

My powder is from the brand Lancôme and is called “Dual Finish Powder”. It’s a great setting powder for foundation. I already used up a compact, and now I’m on to my second! That says a lot, because I like to try new types and brands of makeup, but for now I’m sticking with this one. I almost never do that! If you have oily skin, I don’t recommend that you wear this powder alone, because it will fade on your face. I had that happen to me.

The blush I used is from the brand Chanel. If you don’t know, Chanel is one of the all time leading designer brands! Anyway, this blush is probably the best I’ve ever used! I have like eight blushes in my makeup collection, and I’ve tried many more. Crazy, right? I bought this blush at Fashion’s Night Out at Neiman Marcus. It will probably last me about a year or so. I think it’s a pretty good deal!

The setting spray I used is the Urban Decay “De-Slick Setting Spray”. It’s a great setting spray, because it takes away all the oil off your skin. It also keeps your makeup in place for a very long time. That’s great if you’re going to a party or if you’re going to be out all day without touch-ups. Since I bought it, I haven’t needed to touch up my makeup! You can’t use it for eye makeup, but it’s a dream for face makeup! Loving it!

For my lips, I used a Neutrogena lip balm first. My lips get dry easily, so that’s why I used it before I put anything else on my lips. I then applied my Maybelline Color Whisper lipstick in “Cherry On Top”. It’s a little drying, but the color is fantastic! It also gives a little shine. Finally, I applied my Buxom Lipgloss in “Princess”. The shade is so pretty that I just couldn’t resist!

Thank you for reading, fashionistas! I hope you enjoyed my post! I love you guys!

Formal Valentine’s Day Outfit and Beauty!

Hi, fashionistas!

You saw my previous post about a casual Valentine’s Day look, so now here’s my formal look! Let’s get started:

For my dress, I’m wearing my polka dotted, flow-y dress. It’s romantic enough for going out, and cute enough for your loved one to notice! The beige polka dots contrast very well with the navy dress. 

The pastel tights are a good change from bare legs or black tights. They’re unexpected, and that creates a little mystery which is important! They also are a romantic shade. 

The clutch is simple yet has a print. Cute! It has a classic shape which compliments the dress very well, plus it’s almost the same shade as the dress itself! Win win!

These heels are what I call a neutral black. They go with almost anything! They are great paired with dark colors such as the ones in this outfit. 

Dangling earrings are great, because they create the illusion of a longer, thinner face.

OUTFIT DETAILS: Dress: Target, Tights: Hue, Clutch: Juicy Couture, Heels: GB, Earrings: I bought them at Austin Fashion Week

Beauty:

Hair in a side ponytail is cute and flirty! Hair is a key factor in choosing makeup. It means a lot!

For formal date makeup, purple eyeshadow is a great shade to use! It’s mysterious in a way your loved one can’t explain, and that’s a good thing! You also need to put a shimmery eyeshadow (cream or white) on the inner corner of your eyes and the brow bone (below your eye brow). That makes your eyes look bigger and prettier! It’s a must for me (even on a regular day)! It also makes the look a little lighter. Berry lipstick and lip liner is a great idea, too. It plays up your eyes and give you the look of a flawless face. I love it!
