Coveted, March 2015

I’m always planning another international trip, and as such am always looking for perfect travel items.

This month’s coveted list make up the perfect travel pieces. They are gorgeous, modern, and some of them are timeless…

The Coveted List March 2015

Clockwise from left:

Rag and Bone Classic Tee. Perfect to travel in, chic with white pants, maybe the most perfect tee I have ever found. 

Available at

Chantecaille Rose De Mai Face Oil. I’m obsessed with face oils, and this one is sensational. Super hydrating and nourishing it leaves a luxurious texture to the skin. Rich in vitamin C it is also anti aging and has healing properties. Available at Nordstrom.

Ellis Faas Hot Lips. I always travel with Ellis Faas products. Their unique bullet packaging is ideal for your handbag or your travel bag, and the products themselves are amazing pro makeup artist quality. Hot Lips are super pigmented, so a little goes a long way. They are non greasy, long wearing, and don’t dry out your lips. I adore fuchsia lips so am coveting their L403 Bright Fuchsia shade.

Dolce and Gabbana Sunglasses. I’ve been wearing aviators the past couple of years and want to change it up. I love these animal print glasses, and also their floral sunglasses. 

Prada Backpack. I am a Prada girl through and through. I normally shop at the Prada outlet in Montevarchi where prices are 75% off, just as the items are arriving in the stores here. It’s brilliant! This Prada soft calf leather backpack is a timeless piece that is perfect to travel with and will also look chic running around town. I would love it paired with the Rag and Bone Classic Tee, a pair of white linen pants and a nude wedge or platform shoe. In a perfect world that would be my spring/summer uniform this year :))

Makeup and Hair Trends From NYFW Spring 2014

I just finished one of the most insane work weeks ever, and consequently missed the bulk of New York Fashion Week. As much as I wanted to track it all in real time, shooting til midnight everyday got the better of me, so now I’m doing some high speed recapping, tracking both NYFW and now LFW.

Anyway, here are some of the hair and makeup trends that look interesting for spring of 2014:

1. Wet hair.
Seen both as a glam option,and a grungy one, slicked back, wet hair will make getting out the door on time a whole lot easier.

2. Thin blue eyeliner.

Francois Nars did this at Marc Jacobs. Doesn’t it look refreshing?
Have to wonder why the Marc Jacobs show didn’t use the new Marc Jacobs makeup line?
Regardless, this could be a fun trend for spring.

3. Iridescent Skin with Tangerine Lips

I loved the iridescent skin and tangerine lips at Rag and Bone.
Skin looked alive and quasi futuristic, offset by the bold yet fresh lip.

The tangerine lip was also front and center at Prabal Garung.

4. The Low Ponytail

I loved this at Jason Wu. Across the board designers were showing variations on the low ponytail, from the center part at Wu, to soft and easy at Christain Siriano, sleek at Victoria Beckham and smooth and simple at Altuzarra

5. Metallic Eyes

The Nars team created fresh, metallic lids at Carmen Marc Valvo,
a trend spotted at other designers including Jason Wu, Charlotte Ronson and Prabal Garung.
