I mean, can we talk about this color?
its pretty but is it brown or like a medium tone grey?
I purchased this nail polish a few days before my wedding because of how sophisticated the hue looked. I wanted to make sure my nails looked polished as we exchanged our vows and slide the marriage bands onto our fingers.
I hope you enjoy the little nail polish inspiration for the day!
Favorite looks from the collection
The first time Sally LaPointe was brought to my attention was when the fashion and lifestyle influencer, Daniella of @weworewhat, posted up a deliciously elegant metallic motto leather jacket on her Instagram for a little #fashioninspo. As I decided to skim through Sally LePointes Pre-Fall 2017 collection, which hits stores in June, I noticed a range of styles from simple polished silhouettes to sporty with a touch of athleisure without going over board (hello #minimalism lol). Most of her pieces have trims of fox fur from Finland, albeit, I’m pro faux fur but my goodness, does it look so luxurious as it juxtaposes the easy and comfort of a boxy silk cashmere hoodie.
It immediately answered my need and desire for items that look one of a kind with elements of luxuriousness and casualness, finding this balance could be really tricky, especially with the abundance of designers in the fashion industry. As I was reading through an interview the designer did for Fashionista.com, she describes her line as being “Powerfully feminine. Tough and elegant — again kind of that fine line thing.”
Yes, yes, yes & I couldn’t agree more. Here are some of my favorite complete looks from her collection for Pre-Fall 2017 that I’m currently lusting over. Also, some key pieces that I would love to rework with other items for a cool #ootd for a Brooklyn gal. She’s one designer who I’ll be definitely looking towards as a source of fashion inspiration for the exciting new year ahead because of her unparalleled eye for design and I hope you will too!
#ootd for Sunday brunch!

Wet n Wild Eyelashes
Wet n Wild: Coverall Palette: I’ve been using the color correcting palette religiously, the colors even out my complexion and undertones, which is awesome. The only drawback is the white, which is meant for highlighting, its too shimmer… I like shimmer, but I was just expecting it to be matte.
The overall #Makeup Look!
Lately I’ve been experimenting with false eyelashes & I recently bought these from Wet n Wild because I wanted some that looked fuller and longer… but be careful what you wish for. They looked great but they were a headache to put them on cause of how stiff they were and partly because I hadn’t handled wider & fuller lashes.
I started out with a clean face and after I applied sun screen and face moisturizer, I let it dry for a few seconds then started applying the color correcting. I’ve been getting in the habit of always using color correcting first because it evens out all the tones of my face. Especially my under circles, no matter how much sleep I get, they stay hallow.
Once I finished correcting, I began with concealer and then moved to apply foundation. The foundations I’ve been using, I got from as a gift through an internship with a beauty editor I did last fall. She had gone to a beauty convention in NYC and then brought back to me a bag full of makeup supplies and this foundation happen to fit my skin tone perfectly.
I then began to place the eyelashes on (which took longer then expected). The main culprit was my eyelash adhesive, from L’OREAL, I would let it dry for a few seconds so it’ll be a little stick and easier to apply. But the adhesive kept on drying out to quickly on the edges so it wouldn’t stay down on my corners..
It was a fun look to experiment with, once it was all done, the finished look was really nice to see and to start the day with. Enjoy!
