Style Sessions Fashion Link Up: The Metallic Dress


Welcome to the Style Sessions Fashion Link Up! This week I’m sharing one of my favorite new dresses – I adore all things metallic and as soon as I saw this, I was in love! With a statement dress you don’t want your accessories to complete, so I went with neutral heels, stud earrings and added a little color with bright lipstick (it’s also Kourtney Kardashian’s favorite color).

Finally, I curled my hair using my go-to GHD irons (I’ve used these for 10 years, they are amazing!). Oh and if you haven’t entered my Walgreens Gift Card giveaway yet, be sure to enter – you just have to leave a blog comment (how easy is that!).

Meet Our Head Stylist…

I’m excited to introduce you to our Head Stylist, Debbie from Fashion Fairy Dust! I thought this was a perfect relaxed weekend look and I adore the leopard shoes…

STYLE Q&A WITH DEBBIE:

How would you describe your style?  I would have to describe my style as casual meets dressy. I definitely prefer my outfits to be comfortable and casual, but I always throw in an unexpected dressy element. And by the same token, if I’m dressed up I’ll often add something a bit more laid back to add a little bit of interest.

Which fashion trend are you currently loving?  I’d have to go with floral prints and pastels…and I’m super happy that plaid is still going strong for next fall/winter. My personal belief though is if you really are into something it doesn’t matter if it’s “trendy” or not, you should wear it if it makes you feel happy and good about yourself.

What inspired you to start your blog?  I started Fashion Fairy Dust because I have always really been into style and fashion and wanted a way to share that passion with others and a blog provided me with that opportunity. I got into blogging kind of late in the game age-wise, and I actually think that is in my favor. It’s important for women of all ages to see that great style has nothing to do with a number and everything to do with what looks great on you.

Name three beauty products you couldn’t live without: 1. Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner Pencil…I never leave home without it. 2. Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer. I use the concealer for dark circles and the brightener to highlight. 3. It’s A 10 Miracle Leave In Conditioner…It’s a bit pricey, but it works wonders on my thick course hair as well as my daughter’s naturally curly hair.

What is your best beauty trick?  Even if I’m not wearing eye shadow I always put highlighter on my brow bone and the inner corners of my eyes. It really wakes them up.

What is your favorite (or dream) vacation destination? Anywhere that has blue water and white sand.

Tell us something not many people know about you?   Okay, this is weird, but chicken creeps me out. Not the actual bird, the food version. The only time I will even consider eating it is if my husband or I cook it, and it has to be really really thin chicken breast. What can I say? When I wear my “weirdo” graphic tee, I really mean it!
