The temperature has begun it’s decline into lower digits.  Fall is well underway which means…. Sweater Weather!

This season designers decided to amp up the cool weather factor by incorporating color-blocking, inventive stitch techniques and mixed media embellishments into the cool weather classic.

These are everything BUT your typical sweater.

Pair with pencil and midi skirts, leather pants, boots, loafers and pile on the jewels to create an effortlessly chic juxtaposition.

From Ponchos to pullovers Sherpa-esc volume to rock and roll worthy leather details here is a peek at some of my top picks for Fall 2015 Sweaters.

National Mean Girls Day

by christiem on October 3, 2015 · 1 comment


On Wednesdays we wear pink.

You go Glenn Coco.

You can’t sit with us.

Three iconic phrases from one of my favorite fashionable flicks, Mean Girls.

Every day is the perfect day to honor Mean Girls, but over the past few years, October 3rd has become an extra-special day for die-hard fans. The unofficial National Mean Girls Day comes from a scene in the movie when things really start to heat up between Cady and her love interest, Aaron Samuels. (He asks her what day it is, and she replies, “It’s October 3rd.”)


ABC Family celebrates #NationalMeanGirlsDay on Saturday, October 3rd, 2015, with an all-day marathon devoted to the underdog, rooting for them to flex their girl power and stand up to the big, bad bully. Spend the day with five strong ladies as they take down their own versions of Regina before watching Cady face off with The Plastics during #NationalMeanGirlsDay marathon on Saturday, October 3rd, beginning at 7:00 a.m.

In honor of Mean Girls Day I have put together some of my favorite Mean Girls finds that are pretty fetch.

TV Inspired Couples Costumes

by christiem on October 2, 2015 · 1 comment

It is a very crucial time of year folks, time to decide who or what you are going to be for Halloween.

Planning the perfect Halloween Costume requires skill and planning the perfect couples costume takes real finesse.

You want people to get it on sight not after a lengthy explanation,  you want to stay on budget and incorporating pieces you can wear again is always a plus.

The Fall Television roster has me super excited this year so I decided to base my picks on my top Fall to-die-for shows.

From the creepy to the fashionable and even the hilarious I have put together five TV character inspired couples and duo costumes that will have you scoring higher than Empire during sweeps month.

1. Scream Queens: Red Devil and Chanel.


The Red Devil is easy- you can buy the complete costume or just the mask HERE. If you want to beef the costume up a bit add a chainsaw and leather pants instead of the pants included in the costume.

For Chanel go poppy, preppy and pink. These so-on-trend pieces will be a good investment that you can wear again and again.

Here are some of my top picks to get the look.

2. Empire: Cookie and Lucious.  

Cookie HAS to have attitude, think faux fur, gold accessories and a bodycon dress.  Lucious need to rock a Rat Pack cool vibe, fitted suit, pocket square and fedora.  Both are great looks that you can pull the layers off and wear again.

Here are some of my picks to get the look.  Click to SHOP


3. Two Broke Girls. Max and Caroline. Ok so maybe you can’t wear these again but they are still hilarious.  Great for a duo- make sure you add Caroline’s siganture pearl necklace to her look.

Click below to SHOP the Look:


4. Gravity Falls. Dipper and Mabel.  I am totally obsessed with this cartoon.  It’s like Twin Peaks for kids!  Easy to achieve and ridiculously fun!

For Mabel you need a sweater with either a rainbow or a unicorn on it, a headband, an a-line skirt, socks and mary-jane shoes.  It’s okay if it’s day-glo, remember this if from an animated show! If you want to get really inventive add fake braces.

For Dipper you need the Gravity Falls ball cap, gray shorts, orange t-shirt, a sleeveless sweatshirt, tube socks and sneakers.

Here are my top picks to get the look:


5. Blindspot. Jane and Agent Kurt Weller.  Ok this one is not for the tame of heart.  It requires a bit of work and showing some skin.

For Jane you have to go with the nude covered in Tattoos look.  This can be achieived two ways: 1. Buying a nude body suit and hand drawing the tattoos on it OR hiring a body painter and having them airbrush the tattoos on.

Kurt Weller takes much less effort. Start with a white collared shirt and black trousers then add an FBI Bulletproof vest.  You can pick up  iron on FBI letters here and a vest below:

Give you some ideas?  Which TV Inspired Costume idea do you want to suit up in this Halloween?

Fab Hair Finds

by christiem on September 30, 2015 · 0 comments

I love sharing new beauty finds with my readers and today I have two new hair-tastic products to tell you about.

Wella EIMI Perfect Me Lightweight BB Lotion and NuMe Microfiber Hair Wrap.

FullSizeRender (26)

Wella EIMI Perfect Me Lightweight BB Lotion.  Yes you read that correctly, it’s a BB Lotion for your hair! It pretty much does for your hair what BB Creams do for your skin.  Infuses dry hair with moisture, repairs damages strands, smooths hair, tames flyaways, boosts shine and protects hair from heat styling leaving hair with a healthy brilliance and high shine.  I have been using it on damp hair before my blowout but you can also use it to smooth on dry hair.  It is so lightweight that it doesn’t weigh your hair down at all but does deliver heavy protection.  A must-have for the dry Fall/Winter weather to come or anyone with color treated hair!

Wella EIMI Perfect Me Lightweight BB Lotion is available at BeautyBrands.com

NuMe Microfiber Hair Wrap.  I AM ADDICTED and totally crushing on this beauty-baby.  In fact friends and family be warned, you will probably all be getting a NuME Hair Wrap from me for the holidays because I am so in love.  I discovered this makes-my-life-so-much-easier product when I received it in my blogger gift bag at Super Saturday.  This hair wrap is made from lightweight 100% microfiber which absorbs excess moisture, resulting in less split ends, zero frizz and stronger, shinier hair. The 100% microfiber towel with button-loop closure combats the daily use of excess heat by absorbing 80% more moisture than a cotton towel would plus you don’t have to fumble with a huge bath towel on your head when you step out of the shower.  It seriously works folks, this power-packed little hair wrap absorbed so much of the excess moisture that it drastically reduced my blow-drying time which  reduces the amount of minutes my color-treated hair is exposed to heat! I also noticed a real difference in the amount of frizz I was dealing with.

NuME Microfiber Hair Wrap is available at NuMeProducts.com

This season designers looked to a classic menswear staple for inspiration.   Against all odds the off-duty-businessman’s shoe of choice, the loafer, is the hottest thing you can slip your feet into this season.
