Current Cravings: {A Bold Lip}

I'm no make-up artist extraordinaire but I can appreciate the craft and the art of the application.  I have recently been delving into trying a colored lip, either that consist of lipstick, lipgloss or a combination of both.  Bold lips signify to me a sense of the risk takers even the fearless.  You can definitely change the tone of your outfit just with the right choice of color.  Whether that be an air of mystery, a striking intensity or a soft innocence, what you want to convey is of your mood and choosing.

Friday's Fancies: {Prepped for April Showers}

April is the month of rain and even more rain, especially in the Seattle area but that doesn't mean you can't be fashionably chic while enduring the troublesome weather.  I love the idea of the classic trench that'll tie any look together but I have yet to invest in and own one myself.  Hopefully you can check out "Friday's Fancies" on the blog Long Distance Loving and look at all of the outfit creations by other bloggers based on this week's theme.

Off the Runway: {Badgley Mischka Fall 2012 RTW}

Edgy and dark yet chic.  There is a continuum of the sheen of metallics and sequins throughout this collection and that adds the perfect touch to the dark tones and the occasional dose of color in the looks.  Every detail is seemingly either glamourous or industrial, playing an important part to accompany the classic feminine silhouettes.

The Latest: {A 70's Vibe}

I found this pair of denim at a great price as I scanned through a sale rack about a month ago and was intrigued by the intense bell-bottom flare of these turquoise pants.  I considered the purchase I'd be making and the kind of investment it would be and took the plunge with this unique item.  They are definitely a little different from what I already own but I can't wait to style them again.

Off the Runway: {Marchesa Spring 2012 RTW}

The looks are soft and feminine yet whimsical.  So very ethereal but clearly sophisticated with the grandeur of the gowns.  The bead-work is divine and the subdued color palette of the grey and ivory is the perfect backdrop for the intricate textures.
