Style Sessions Fashion Link Up: Monochrome and Magenta


Welcome to the Style Sessions Fashion Link Up! I hope you had a beautiful weekend and enjoyed shopping all those fabulous sales (I know I did)… and they’re not over yet! One of my all-time favorite sales is from Shopbop, you get 25% off site-wide! It’s on right now until midnight EST Thursday (October 16). I bought my much loved Marc by Marc Jacobs handbag in that sale (I’ve literally worn it every single day for 3 years, it’s still perfect and will never go out of style!).

This week I wanted to share something classic, with a twist… monochrome and magenta! Black and white is always a safe style bet, but it’s also important to bring some fun and personality to your look – and one of my favorite ways to do this is accessories.

I’m always obsessed with this bright clutch (how fab is the monogram!) and adore these floral print Dolce & Gabbana sunglasses (my sister keeps trying to steal them). They are the perfect little additions to brighten up this monochromatic outfit! Oh and I’m excited to be wearing my new Bellami hair extensions, it’s so fun switching from mid-length to long hair in an instant! I’ll share more about them in another post coming up, but they are these Lily extensions and truly so thick and fabulous – I just loooove them!

Meet Our Head Stylist…

 I’m thrilled for you to meet this week’s Head Stylist, Nora from Jacket Society! Nora has such classic style and as her blog name would suggest, a penchant for chic jackets…

STYLE Q&A WITH NORA:

How would you describe your style? My personal style is mixing the classical with the modern and edgy.

Which fashion trend are you currently loving?  Every fall I look forward to some faux fur trends, it could just be trim or a full faux fur jacket but I love the look with jeans or black pants and this year there are so many different colors and types of fur so I am looking forward to wearing and doing some kind of fur for Jacket Society.

What inspired you to start your blog? I was always complimented for my style and asked where I got what I was wearing. I decided to finally write a blog about my own personal style but there are so many personal style blogs and I wanted to have a niche so I decide to do a personal style blog but emphasizing the importance of jackets which has always been my passion.  Jackets usually set the tone of my outfit for the day so I decided to do Jacket Society.

Name three beauty products you couldn’t live without:  As you get older, it seems like you need more beauty products, but the minimum daily products that I need are a concealer ( I have dark circles under my eyes). I like YSL Touche Eclat radiant touch, its not too heavy and you can get it in any color that works for your skin.  Second is Bobbi Brown skin Foundation, again in any color that works for you.  And last but not least its Guerlain Bronzing powder.  I use the terracotta color but I have brown skin so you have to see what works for you.  Last two things I would need is eye liner and lipstick.

What is your best beauty trick?  My best beauty trick has always been a bit of blush and lipstick. Whenever I have absolutely no time to do anything else, I just put a little bit of blush on and some lipstick and its good enough to leave the house.

What is your favorite (or dream) vacation destination? I love to travel and I have been to many countries so far but I would really love to go back to Italy and travel the coast and the beach areas. I am working on this for my next travel adventure so please keep your fingers crossed for me.

Tell us something not many people know about you? Something that not many people know about me is that I am very sensitive. I usually come across as very strong and calm and tough but inside I am very sensitive and emotional… so watch out! J

  14. What a lovely top! Those extensions look amazing on you! That’s funny. I was talking with my hair stylist this weekend about being bored with my hair and wanting a change. He suggested extensions, which I have never tried. Your post is inspiring me to give them a try!! Did you do them yourself or get them professionally done? How is the up keep with them?
