The Little Black Dress… 

I’ve always wondered, does every woman own an LBD? Do you have one in your wardrobe? I have many… but I know my mom thinks black isn’t her color, so she doesn’t have one. I remember reading fashion magazines when I was in my early teens and seeing all the glamorous 20-somethings wearing little black dresses, with editors touting their ‘must-have’ status. So I’d love to know, apart from my mom, does every woman have a little black dress?

Meet Our Head Stylist…

I am thrilled to introduce you to this week’s Head Stylist, Ariel from Auteur Ariel! When I saw her look below, I immediately thought “this gal’s got style!”. I adore the burgundy, black and white color combination – and that hat is perfect for Fall!

What is your go-to look?  With Fall making its presence, my go-to look is an oversized sweater, skinny jeans and combat boots. If it’s extra chilly that day, I add an infinity scarf and utility jacket!

Which fashion trend are you currently loving?  I am currently loving beanies! Not only are they cute, but they’re prefect for keeping your ears warm during the Fall and a life saver for those bad hair days. I always find myself drawn to them when I’m shopping – I’m subconsciously building a beanie army.

What inspired you to start your blog?  My friend B. He writes a fashion column for a online NY magazine and the moment I read his first article, I was totally inspired. Blogging is something I’ve been wanting to do for a while and that inspiration gave me the final push I needed to get my blog up and running!

Name three beauty products you couldn’t live without:  1. bareMinerals Matte Foundation – No matter what foundations I keep trying out, I keep crawling back to bM.  2. Argan oil – For my dry ends, especially during the Fall and Winter   3. EOS Lip Balm – I always keep one on me because there is nothing more distracting than a pair of dry, cracked lips. Not to mention they come in such a cute sphere shape!

How would you describe your style? Boho Chic. I love feeling pretty with my peplum tops and heels, but I am also obsessed with beanies, combat boots and feathers.
