Think Pink

Rainbow hued hair has been quite a hit over the past year, gracing the heads of everyone from punk princesses to Valentino ad models.  While colorful hair is fun and playful, not everyone wants cotton candy tresses 24/7.  So what's a girl to do when she wants pink hair for a night out, but needs to go back to basic for work the next day? Kevin Murphy 's color bug to the rescue! The "color bug" is a small container of pressed power that comes in purple, hot pink, and bright coral. It kind of works like  eyeshadow, hair shadow if you will. Apply it, if necessary re-apply it, and when your done, wash it out. If you live near me in the Shreveport area and want the color bug please go visit my friends at Chemistry Hair Salon, and while your there get a cut from one of their lovely stylists!

What They Wear and Where They Live: Taylor Tomasi Hill

With a bold mix of color, pattern, texture and a dash of quirkiness Dallas native and fashion extraordinaire, Taylor Tomasi Hill, never fails to impress. Her unbeatable style is constantly captured on the streets and now we  get a glimpse of how she applies it at home. Her NYC apartment is the epitome of modern/farmhouse/glam chic with  rustic burlap and dead animal touches  that certainly prove you can take the girl out of Texas, but you can't take the Texas out of the girl!

3 Exciting Things, the go to website for all things fashion, released the first edition of their new print magazine in late 2011. While all other fashion mags are just now covering Spring 12', Style was on top of things  releasing their Spring 12' coverage promptly after the last cat-walk was strutted. I read through the entire magazine on a stop to B&N last winter and for some crazy reason I did not buy my own copy.  Weeks later I was feeling pangs of regret for not snatching the issue up and when I returned to finally claim one they were sadly sold out.  Luckily for this girl, the issue was re-released this Spring! Now, I am looking forward for the Fall 12' issue which should be out very soon.
*Update- The Fall 12' issue is out now. Go get it!

2. My friend Deanna, a Dior make-up fiend, turned me on to this new Dior Addict Extreme lipstick in Black Tie. I had to get some of my own and it is my new go-to lipstick. It goes on smoothly and creates a deep wine hue and later fades into a pretty berry stain. I love how long it lasts and the versatility of the color.

3. Stella McCartney makes the most beautiful pair of pointy toe, patent sling backs, which I have pictured bottom right.  Gorgeous yes, but way out of my price range.  Fashion luck again was on my side when I was causually browsing DSW with a friend and spied a pair of heels in practically the exact same style. They are pretty much dead-on and for $35.00, I am happily squeezing my toes in the last pair available, size  5 1/2!  Maybe one day I can afford a pair of Stella's on my own, but until then, these will do.

Hot Mamas and Cool Nurseys

This post was inspired by one of my very best friends, Rachel, who just announced that she is having her first baby. I have to admit, I was in shock when she first gave me the news because even though we are both technically grown-ups (we're 26 and married) I feel like we are  practically still babies ourselves! Besides the momentary shock, I am very excited for her and I can't wait to meet Baby O.   If and when Rachel refuses to get out of her pregnant lady sweat pants, I am going to refer her back to these photos of two of my favorite stylish women, mama Miroslava Duma, and mama-to-be, Julia Restoin Roitfeld. Can you believe how amazing they look even when they are about to pop. If being pregnant means looking that good, then sign me up! JK.  The hip and modern nurseries  pictured are from my pre pinterest days, so unfortunately I do not have the links. Great inspiration for Baby O's little lair.
