Prada Fall 2013 Ready-to-Wear: Undone Chic

I don’t report details on Fashion Week unless I’m like, REALLY impressed by something.  And guys, I saw photos from Prada’s Fall 2013 show and I LOOOVE it.  
InStyle’s Fashion Director, Cindy Weber Cleary, gave us some scoop on the inspiration for the line.

“The models in Miuccia Prada’s sensual, spectacular fall collection looked intentionally disheveled,” says Weber Cleary. “With wet hair, off-kilter layers, and weekend-bag sized satchels, it was as if they stepped out of the shower and had to dress quickly before running out the door.”

And yet, so chic. Walk of shame much?  I feel like I look like this (unintentionally) every.single.day of my life, so clearly, I can relate.  The line features beautiful, rich-looking clothing on models that simply aren’t finished.  Need some inspiration on how to create this look on your own?  Check out this post HERE.  Here are my favorite looks from the collection:

Hawaiian Tropic Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Swim in Miami (vote for me!)

If there’s one thing I’m vehemently passionate about, it’s SPF and safe sun.  I was featured on BellaSugar.com last May for Skin Cancer Awareness Month and was honestly SHOCKED at how many people commented on my story, saying that “vitamin D is good for you” and that you don’t really need to wear sunblock.  With that shocking fact said, I’ve partnered with Hawaiian Tropic (yes, the sunscreen that smells like coconut!) in a contest with two other beauty bloggers – I could win the chance to go with them to Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Swim in Miami this summer!

Vote for me HERE.  You just have to “like” the page (I promise they won’t spam you) and then scroll down to vote for me.  Oh, and you can vote more than once, btw!


To make things a little more interesting, if I do win, I’ll do a week’s worth of beauty and fashion giveaways as soon as the winner is announced, and guys, they will be GOOD prize packages, I promise.  You help me, I help you.


Free Rides at New York Fashion Week!

If you’re going to New York Fashion Week this year, you should totally take advantage of the free rides from U by Kotex!  Alas, I am NOT going…and honestly, I’m pretty happy about it.  I’ve been traveling way too much and I’m looking forward to relaxing.  Also, I just found out that I’m going to be attending the Grammys (and the after party) so stay tuned for photos.

L.A.M.B Spring 2012 RTW

We all know that my love for Gwen Stefani runs deep which is why it should be no surprise how much I looooved her L.A.M.B Spring 2012 Ready-to-Wear collection that debuted in NYC a few days ago.  Here are my top picks below and you can see the full collection here.
