My sartorial and beauty obsessions du jour!
For whatever reason, this post took a turn for the patriotic. I have decided to run with it, as it still is the month of our country’s independence, after all…
Last week my friend Rachel and I found ourselves in an in-depth and strategic conversation about the latest and greatest in hip nail polish colors. I was looking for something new, modern and slightly edgy that still read “summer” (too early for fall’s metallics). You should know that Rachel is actually a nail polish aficionado (it’s literally her livelihood), yet when Rachel suggested White I still hesitated and made a face. I was immediately having flashbacks to middle school experiments with White Out. Rach suggested I go towards the opaque and super glossy and get them professionally done, because they need to be clean to look nice. I took her word for it, and I have to say I am actually totally impressed and obsessed with the ‘White Out’ nails look. Seriously, I strongly urge you to try it out for yourself! Good ones: Deborah Lippman’s ‘Amazing Grace’ and Sephora by OPI’s ‘A-ha! Moment’ .
I am equally as obsessed with this particular color of corally-red that is kind of all over the place right now. I have written before about my disaffinity for wearing red (see here), yet the coraliness of this color really takes it above and beyond (it’s prettier!). I recently bought 2 sweaters from Urban Outfitters in this color that I can’t get enough of and am on the hunt for a blazer a la Rachel Bilson. Note to self: lay off the matchy-matchy orangey red lipstick.
The Shoe Biz
I have to admit, I’m not the biggest shoe girl and I rarely feel super emotional about shoes outside of my Frye boot/sandal collection. However, I recently stumbled upon these grey zip-back wedges, thought they were interesting and cool (and comfy to boot!) and now they’re like my new faves. Fun!
happy weekend to you all!
