Happy May Day! This only means one thing in the fashion world. Vogue Editor in Chief Anna Wintour gets to welcome celebrities, fashion designers, socialites and other guests for the annual Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute benefit gala in New York.This year, the gala is celebrating the opening of the new exhibition “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between,” which already is receiving high praise from the media.
If you were to take a look into my bathroom, you might think I went a little too overboard at Sephora. Yes, I am here to admit that I am addicted to beauty products. The good news - I am perfectly fine with this addition as some of the products I recently discovered have been a blessing to my skin. In addition, I've jumped on the rose water bandwagon and don't plan on jumping off anytime soon. Rose water has been proven to reduce the excess oils and maintain just the right pH balance of the skin.
My signature go to lip color is a vibrant red with an orangey undertone that somehow has the power to complete my outfit with two simple strokes. The power of lipstick I tell ya! What you probably don't know is that lipstick had quite the bumpy past. Red lipstick in particular came with some strong regulations and was looked at as a tool for "deceiving men." Yes, long before Coco Chanel said her famous line, "If you're sad, add more lipstick and attack," there was some twists and turns for the modern girls go-to lip shade.
I am kicking this week off with a big kiss to all things lips. From fashion to female icons to everything else in between - lips continue to be an international symbol of the feminine mystique.So, follow me these next few days as I dive a bit deeper and take a bite out of the history of luscious lips and all the kiss marks it has left in its path.
I live in Arizona which basically means it is warm year round. It is so hot at times you are forced to stay in doors for three months. I basically say goodbye to any fashion trend that has to do with layers. So, for me spring in Phoenix is the one time of the year where I can indulge in some of fashion;s latest trends before the sidewalk starts melting.Many of the "it" trends that were crossing the spring 2017 runway shows included sleeve slits and exaggerated ruffles with a gentle romantic flare. With all that has been cooking in the world of politics, fashion has caught on to women embracing their femininity in full force.
