Happy National Lipstick Day!

Style Mavens, on your mark, get set, pout!  Happy National Lipstick Day!

As a budding beauty junkie, there are a few products {i.e., lipstick}, that gets me excited such as a deep plum, shimmery nudes or vibrant shades of rouge.  I’ve joined several makeup groups for women of color on Facebook, so I am learning new techniques daily.  I love a bold lip, a dramatic eye and dewy/natural skin, so be prepared to see more random selfies in the near future.

Style File ● Revamp Your Accessories

Thanks to Pinterest and InStyle, I have designated the month of August to declutter and purge all clothing and accessories that I no longer wear or need.  Perhaps a quick fashion swap may be appropriate?

Since this task will be daunting (yes, I said it), I really wanted to have a vision.  Two words that came to mind were “fully functional and classy.”  It is almost like I would like to have my own boutique that I have the luxury of personally shopping at daily. I am sure that I am not the only person who has purchased the same statement necklace, or one very similar twice due to lack of organizing. Or, how about two bracelets tangled to the point of no return?

I adore the unconventional pieces used to execute the the fashion forward images showcased below and the majority of these items are found in my favorite thrift and vintage stores.

When displaying my accessories, I plan to incorporate vintage plates, fashion magazines, small bowls and decorative home pieces.  Hanging jewelry on remixed cork boards or using a vintage cheese grater to display dangling/oversize earrings are all creative and chic ways to showcase your prize possessions in style.

How will you revamp your accessories?

Style File ● 100% Resale Look

Happy Monday!

I have challenged myself to incorporate at least one resale piece into my daily looks. While having dinner over the weekend with close friends, I had the perfect opportunity to wear this comfortable little black cotton dress and a pair of unique sparkly platform sandals that were both snagged while on the NYC MODAGE Style Vintage/Resale Bus Tour.

My goal is to always work my preexisting wardrobe and removing the sentence, “I have nothing to wear,” from my vocabulary. Planning is key and it took me years to learn this. Once I developed a thorough resale eye, I’ve been able to snag vintage and modern pieces for less than the cost of my java addiction.

As of late, my style has been pretty conservative; however, I’m really trying to mix it up on the weekends in between client meetings.  Throughout the month, I’ll continue to post my 100% resale looks.
