The best thing about my friends is that they always challenge me to think, to express, and to be who I am regardless of how I feel that day. I recently went to visit my friend Amber this weekend who lives up in Boston, she is an amazing makeup artist and probably one of of the coolest people I know. This is what she taught me and what I found out about myself:
1. I need a magnifying glass:
2. I never get sick of white wine (but I think I already knew that):
3. I need to be more creative:
4. I’ll never be as creative as her, and I’m ok with that:
5. Styling boards make me feel at home, even if it’s someone else’s:
6. I and everyone needs “an Amber” in their life to make them feel more alive:
I don’t care what anyone says, I am not too good for drugstore makeup. I sometimes actually prefer it over department store makeup, and when it comes to the price, I always prefer it! I just got Maybelline’s ColorSensational Lipstain in “bitten berry” and I absolutely love it! Here’s how it looks on:
From one Doll to another.. It was worth the 400 pennies!
Sooo Kerry and I thought it would be a good idea to live on our own… We live one block away from each other and have coffee together everyday and it’s a blast except for one thing.. B-I-L-L-S! See how I made a vanity in my room on a budge:
Take a full length mirror, put it horizontally on the wall
Find a simple desk or sideboard table
Get a fun chair (I got mine from direct buy for $70)
Accessorize with a chic lamp and stand up mirror and your golden
This vanity doesn’t take up too much room in my room because of the slimness of the table and mounting the mirror.
Hello! So I bought a pair of white gladiators but I've never really worn them because I think they're too loud and also because I don't know what I can wear them with. Could you help me out? x
White gladiators huh? First we suggest a tan… and don’t freak out white is going to be the new black in about 2 months!! Here are the different ways we’d suggest wearing them:
Cutoff jean shorts, a cotton comfy tee that’s a little longer, and scrunch the shirt a little bit to add that “I don’t care I just rolled out of bed look”. This outfit would be perfect for a beach day and lets face it sometimes our feet need a break from our flip flops.
Try a tapered jean with an easy tank tucked in with a belt and a cute fun blazer, sequins is always #1 in our book. We just had a bunch on labeldoll.com yesterday for 60% off, we have flash sales from time to time so hold out for our next one.
Dressed to Impress:
Get a cute fru fru flower printed dress that’s synched at the waste with a little fluff at the skirt. Pair your dress with your white gladiators and it will be a great balanced look of girly and edgy!
Thanks for asking and let us know what you tried out!!
Hey, I was just wondering if you could get give me some ideas on what to wear with this dress? It's a blue & black striped dress that I got from Forever 21, it's the second image on my page. I don't know what to wear with it, because I feel like just wearing the dress, looks boring. And the weather is getting cold, so I might need something under it.
I just tracked down the dress you were asking about on your page and it’s really cute, love the quarter sleeves! Here are some different ways you could wear it:
1. Add a faux fur shrug (the one I’m wearing in this blog post is from Free People and I’m obsessed with it: http://labeldoll.tumblr.com/post/15534256837/ld-boutique ), shrugs are fun and cute but also keep you warm, and sometimes that’s what’s most important. Pair it with some tights and booties to complete the look.
2. Belt it: try a thick black leather belt with some chunky accessories (necklaces, bangles, rings etc) to be a little more edgy with your look.
3. Layer it: scrunch it up and wear it with a pair of jeans to get the “long shirt” look, add some drape-y necklaces to dress it down a little.
I hope this gives you some good ideas of the different ways you can wear this cute dress and feel free to ask us anything!!
Check out Kim’s sequins suit jacket she’s wearing, tone it down with this charcoal gray BB Dakota quarter sleeve jacket… We’re loving the rouge-glossy lip with liquid liner that would make any cat run for the hills.
So you heard it straight from the horses mouth, Kerry and I are officially obsessed with PJ sets. Just when you thought you couldn’t have enough clothes, piles start accumulating with PJ’s too! It’s amazing how cute you can look even you’re going to bed, and did we mention how much guys like them as well??
This one you can find at Target, it’s a little sexier and it’s Missoni:
Victoria’s Secret Sets - This one’s $12.99 (Mark my words Kerry will be all over this one after she reads this blog post):
Also too cute (and guys go crazy for thermals) this VS set for $29.99:
Sometimes we need a little room to digest (if you know what I’m saying) and these PJ’s are still sexy while giving you that much needed “space” to be comfy:
Be sexy, be comfy and be you with these PJ sets - join our obsession (you’ll know what I’m talking about)!
Kerry and I always stress that you don’t need to wear a pantsuit to look “office appropriate”. Here’s our take on how to look fashionable even when you feel like a chicken with your head cut off.
Hair: Wear up or down and don’t go too crazy. Your hair can be distracting, especially to the males in your office.
Makeup: Keep your makeup tame. Kerry and I are HUGE fans of the understated cat eye. Brown at your brow and a lighter shade on your lid along with a couple strokes of your fav liquid liner and your golden. Our favorite liquid liner is Maybelline’s Line Stiletto (felt tips are easier to apply). Because of your neutral eyes feel free to pop with your lipstick or gloss! We’re loving Kate Spade lipsticks lately because of its glossy sheen.
The look: If you’re going to wear all black be creative when it comes to your accessories. Jackets are a must but it doesn’t have to be a suit jacket. Try a drapy open jacket that isn’t fitted or a trendy biker jacket with a blowsey top or tank underneath. Oh, and never pay full price…
Alternative options for your typical tapered pant could be a maxi skirt or these Jenny Han silk pants:
We always stress heels, and if your not on your feet all that much then go for it, but if you are and still want to wear heels try foot petals, you’ll NEVER wear a pair of heels without them once your seal has been broken…
Now knock their sox off in your next meeting and show your boss who’s really boss!!
