The Jolie Effect

10.15.14 | Permalink | Comment?

Renee is wearing a Theory Leather Jacket, Zara Top, Zara Skirt, Jean-Michel Cazabat Booties, Jimmy Choo Clutch, Dior Sunglasses, and Jewelry by Catbird, Plukka, Phillips House, Kendra Scott, Jennifer Fisher.

During fashion week this season, I had that usual “I have nothing to wear!” meltdown and was convinced I had nothing black and PR-girl appropriate in my wardrobe. I ran to Zara for a quick emergency shopping trip and found this asymmetrical slit skirt. I’m hooked—it reminds me of Angelina Jolie’s go-to thigh-high slit dresses (think Angelina Jolie’s right leg) in all the best ways—I definitely have to hold myself back from popping a leg in this look! Guess I’m embracing the Jolie effect.






A Perfect Routine for Perfectly Clear Skin

10.10.14 | Permalink | 1 Comment

Clockwise from left: Clarisonic Mia 1 Facial Sonic Cleansing Brush $99, La Roche Posay Physiological Cleansing Gel $21.99, Fresh Rose Floral Toner $38, Chantecaille Gold Energizing Eye Recovery Mask $195, Avene Mattifying Fluid $26, SK-II Facial Treatment Mask $95, Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment Advanced Therapy Balm $25, SK-II Facial Treatment Essence $105.
I’ve struggled with acne since I was in 6th grade and have tried every cream and prescription under the sun, including a round of Accutane. While the Accutane did wonders for my complexion, I still have a couple pimples at any given time coupled with some fun rosacea, which can flare up at moment (a hot shower, anger, cold wind)! I am constantly perfecting our skincare routines by trying new things and cruising Makeup Alley for well-reviewed discoveries. Lately I’ve been focusing on PH-balanced cleansers and lotions, which all happen to be from French drugstore brands! Believe me, this routine has done wonders for me. SK-II? No words. I’m pretty sure pitera is the best skincare discovery in the past hundred years. After wearing the SK-II Facial Treatment Mask for thirty minutes, it looked like I had airbrushed myself. I thought I’d spread the good word—my “perfect” routine is below:
1. Wash with La Roche Posay Physiological Cleansing Gel
2. Spread a thin layer of Avene Mattifying Fluid on your face
1. Wash with La Roche Posay Physiological Cleansing Gel
2. Pat on a light layer of SK-II Facial Treatment Essence
3. Use any prescription creams necessary (I use one for rosacea)
4. Apply a thin layer of La Roche Posay Cicaplast Baume B5 (I previously obsessed over it in this post here)… seriously a miracle cream!
5. Add a coat of Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment Advanced Therapy Balm
1. Freeze two spoons and cover your eyes cup down for a couple of minutes
2. Apply a Chantecaille Gold Energizing Eye Recovery Mask and relax with a Vanity Fair
1. Cleanse with Clarisonic Mia using the “delicate” brush head and La Roche Posay Physiological Cleansing Gel
2. Lightly tone with Fresh Rose Floral Toner
3. Use SK-II Facial Treatment Mask for as long as possible (some people wear it overnight!)
4. Apply a thick layer of La Roche Posay Cicaplast Baume B5

Just Around the Corner

Rebecca is wearing a Balenciaga Blouse, Celine Pants, Zara Pearl Cuff, Dior Sunglasses, Celine Pumps, and a Celine Box Bag.
Sometimes your best outfit is just around the corner! These blue Celine pants that have been in the back of my closet all summer are great for fall transitional weather, especially now that I made them cropped with the tailor. It’s just been so hard to find things to wear with this bright blue color! Turns out, I had totally forgotten how easy it can be to just pair something like that with a simple black blouse and pumps. Renee has a collection of incredibly practical (and gorgeous!) black shoes, while I tend to buy the most ridiculous exotic banana-heeled boots or satin sandals. So I’ve been borrowing some shoes from her to simplify! Throw a silver metallic bag and loud cuff into the mix for some fun… et voilà! Solid work wear or perhaps the perfect semi-dressy outfit for a fancy Jean-Georges lunch.

Obsession of the Week

Coach Apollo Crewneck Sweater

10.04.14 | Permalink | Comment?

Coach Apollo Crewneck Sweater $695
Ever since Stuart Vevers took the reigns at Coach, we’ve been craving a full-on Coach wardrobe, complete with gorgeous sheepskin coats, motorcycle rain boots and this Apollo sweater. Can you imagine wearing this with skinny pants and a fishtail braid in your hair? ADORABLE and oh-so-chic. Spring 2015 was equally fabulous with Gary Baseman cartoon characters drawn on sweaters topped with fluffy pastel coats. We’re excited to see what he comes up with next!

October Lust List

10.03.14 | Permalink | Comment?

Clockwise from left: Haider Ackermann Ribbed Knit Sweater $870, Helmut Lang Orgami Sweat Pant $210, Vince Yale Leather Ankle Boots $475, Givenchy Chain Bracelet $980, Adidas Orginals Superstar 2 Sneakers $75, Chloe Medium Drew Shoulder Bag $1645.

This fall weather has got me in the mood for a really clean, minimal, functional wardrobe—comfortable (yet chic!) trousers, big chunky sweaters, and flats to run around in with beautiful gold accessories to keep things interesting. I’ve been seeing the Chloe Drew bag pop up all over my instagram feed lately, and I must say it’s growing on me—the chain strap and gold hardware look really pretty and ladylike, and I love the pop of this luxe blue color against a neutral wardrobe. I’m also dying for these Adidas Originals—they remind me of being a teenager and a simple white sneaker goes with everything from a fancy dress to a ripped up skinny jean. Might be time for a little fall wardrobe refresh!
