Let it Snow

Bundling up for the upcoming storm.

It’s only October, but the forecast for this weekend is calling for several inches of snow in the Northeast. I finally kissed my bare leg days goodbye and pulled out all of my leggings and tights from my closet.

I love mixing the old with the new when creating looks. I found this amazing hat store in downtown Denver called Goorin Brothers. My hubby and I picked up a hat each. The prices are reasonable and they are made really well. The store dates back to 1895 so they still abide by the same quality standards from years past. They carry a ton of vintage styles as well as more modern pieces. I thought the black cloche style hat (similar to this Tina Flapper hat, but it was only around $50) would go perfect with a vintage 60′s black tweed coat that I picked up from a friend. They look amazing together! I paired them with my Etsy (that I resoled) leather boots that I picked up for $25 and together they really allow for the old and new to look seamless (and wallet friendly).

Cheeky fun

Vogue  and Sephora were so sweet and let me test the Hourglass Aura Cheek Stain in Flush. I was skeptical because I have never used a liquid blush that I actually liked before.  I prefer the powder compacts.  I was thrilled when after applying the blush with the applicator and rubbing in further with my fingers (you do have to do some blending with the product as it can come out heavy if you dispense too much at once), I was left with a fresh Spring glow on my cheeks. I think this product is perfect for travelling.  I’m going to be travelling a lot for my new job and really need to pack as light as possible.  This product eliminates the need for a brush which is really awesome! Thanks Hourglass for making such a convenient product that works.

Organic Foundation with a Twist

I was so luck to be able to test Josie Maran’s Argan Matchmaker Serum Foundation for Vougue Magazine. I couldn’t wait to get the foundation in the mail!

As a vintage lover who tries to be green in both my personal and professional life, I was excited to learn that the product not only contains organic ingredients but is also paraben free and vegan (PETA gave the product it’s seal of approval)!

The product comes in a great purse friendly size and glides on as smooth as silk.  It’s really light and reminds me of the tinted mousturizers products out there. I loved the subtle covereage and the way it glides over any imperfections.  My only concern was that when the chameleon like pigments  changed color to match my skin it was slightly darker than my skin tone.  I made sure to blend well and the end result was really great coverage without any of the normal ‘makeupy’ feel.

I’m definitely going to keep this product in my arsenal.

Guilty…..I’m a Gleek!

Ever since Glee premiered on Fox, I tried my hardest to stay away. I’m easily addicted to shows involving high school for some reason and as a 30 year old woman, find it somewhat disconcerting. I started watching Glee in the Fall and as suspected am totally hooked.

I found out that OPI was launching a Glee nail color line and was really intrigued. Sadly, vintage nail polish doesn’t quite work like the new stuff, so I always find myself at Sephora picking up the latest colors for the season.

I now am totally obsessed with the show and this new nail color line.  The colors are really fun and fresh for Spring.  I’m currently wearing ‘Slushied’ an d love the way it brings out the bright blues in my vintage floral frocks.

Cheers to high school dramedies and the all the fun polish colors they inspire!
