Weekend Style

Leather Jacket Kenna T (similar here)/ Sweatshirt Sanctuary/ Sweater Zara/ Jeans c/o James Jeans/ Purse Balenciaga/ Booties ASOS (old, similar here and here)/ Bracelets Samantha Wills/ Sunglasses Ray Ban

After a great weekend, I’m ready to tackle this busy week. Thomas and I finally got around to having a late lunch at Bar Tartine Saturday afternoon and hit up some vintage stores in the Mission. We then headed out to the Outer Sunset and had brunch at Outerlands on Sunday, which ended up being worth the two hour wait. We got lucky with beautiful weather and tried to enjoy the outdoors as much as possible.

A Waiting Game

Faux Fur Bomber Rebecca Taylor (on sale!)/ Skirt Zara (old, similar here)/ Tee Nordstrom/ Heels Givenchy/ Sunglasses Elizabeth & James/Necklace c/o Brooklyn Designs

I’ve had my eye on this Rebecca Taylor faux fur bomber since spotting it in New York last September. When the price hit under $150 (it was originally $550) I gave it. Sometimes shopping is waiting game and it’s worth the wait. I’ll be heading back to New York for Fashion Week at the beginning of February and will be speaking on a panel at the IFB Conference on February 6th. You can view the whole line-up of speakers here and buy tickets here for the event, which is Feb 6-7. Are any of you attending the conference? Hope to see you there :)

Happy Friday!

Lipstick Shades

I have to admit that I’m somewhat of a lipstick-aholic. Whether it’s a bright shade of red or a subtle pink, I think everyone looks better (and more lively) with a little color on their lips. I know a lot of women are hesitant to wear lipstick because they don’t want to feel overdone, especially for an “everyday look”. I have found that the key to wearing lipstick during the day is to keep everything else very minimal. I keep my eye makeup very simple with just a few swipes of mascara and add a little bit of highlighter under my eyes and on my cheekbones. I’m always playing around with different shades of lipstick, but the ones above are definitely my top colors I keep going back to. I also color matched each shade of lipstick in Photoshop so I could show you guys a more accurate shade of each color.
