Meet Our Head Stylist…

 I’m delighted to introduce you to this week’s Head Stylist, Gina from Pink Wings. How gorgeous is this bright full skirt, I adore the red mixed with stripes – oh and isn’t her Kate Spade bag divine!?

ginacollage zpscbf3204a Style Sessions Fashion Link Up: The Sequin Polka Dot Dress

STYLE Q&A WITH GINA:

How would you describe your style?   I’m generally attracted to all things preppy, feminine and conservative. I love basic well-made pieces that I can dress up with fun accessories. If I could only shop at one store for the rest of my life it would be J.Crew or Madewell, I love their stuff.

Which fashion trend are you currently loving?  Stripes have always been around, but for some reason lately I’m loving them more than ever. Especially in my home, I’m currently working on putting together a black and white stripe theme with gold accents.

What inspired you to start your blog?  I originally started with a food blog and then came across a few friends who had fashion blogs. I realized how much I loved following their blogs, plus I’ve always been into fashion, so I finally started a blog combining both my style and food experiments.

Name three beauty products you couldn’t live without: “It’s a 10″ leave-in conditioner, Lise Watier Concealer for my panda eyes and Smashbox Primer.

What is your best beauty trick?  Beauty is not my area of expertise but after 20+ years I’ve finally figured out how to best cover my panda eyes: I use Smashbox Green Primer, Lise Watier concealer on my under-eyes and Lancome Eyelid Primer. Those three things give me a perfect blank canvas for the rest of my makeup.

What is your favorite (or dream) vacation destination? There are so many places I still haven’t been to, but even so, whenever I get the chance to travel I just have to go to Korea. It’s my second home and I’m constantly missing it.

Tell us something not many people know about you? Sometimes I wish I was blonde!

The 80th Edition – Fashion Flashback…

I hope you enjoy this little fashion flashback, as I was reflecting on prior editions of Style Sessions I realized there are certain pieces that just seem to work with everything, style staples I believe everyone needs in their wardrobe.

I absolutely love my Marc by Marc Jacobs handbag and Ray Ban aviator sunglasses, these Michael Kors black patent heels (the best heels ever, still can’t believe they’re under $100!), GiGi New York leather clutch (love the monogram!), YSL Lipstick in #13 Le Orange and these J.Brand denim jeans.

Meet Our Head Stylist…

I’m excited to introduce you to our Head Stylist, Rachel from Rachel The Hat! How perfect and light is this summer dress…

rach zps8df4e021 Style Sessions Link Up: The 80th Edition   Fashion Flashback

STYLE Q&A WITH RACHEL:

How would you describe your style?  I would describe my style as colorful! I love to mix colours in my outfits, pairing colours that perhaps people may not have thought to have tried. One thing I know is that my style is ever evolving and i don’t think I’ve found my ‘signature style’ just yet. I love to try new trends and remix old items with new pieces.

Which fashion trend are you currently loving?  I recently bought my first Jumpsuit (here) and I am absolutely loving wearing this item. It’s just so easy to dress up with some statement jewelry and heels or style casual with some flat shoes and a scarf.

What inspired you to start your blog?  I wanted an outlet for my love for fashion, at the time I worked in a male predominant industry where nobody even cared what i wore each day. Starting the blog and finding like minded ladies to talk fashion with was just the outlet I needed.  I also had just had my son Neo and felt i needed a push to get out of my comfy sweats and back in to real clothes. It worked too,Ii started to look forward to getting dressed again and then sharing with the blogasphere!

Name three beauty products you couldn’t live without: Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch (Touche Eclat equivalent) amazing for my tired eyes! Eyebrow pencil (I am severely eyebrow challenged after being an over zealous plucker in my teens.. plus it was the 80′s.. thin was in!) Maybelline BB cream. So great for evening out my skin tone and is a great spf too!

What is your best beauty trick? Red lipstick! Every time! I swear by it. If I have a business meeting or an appointment and I immediately want to look put together, red lipstick does the trick. It also makes me feel chic and ladylike!

What is your favorite (or dream) vacation destination? I’m a Travel agent by day so this changes quite often for me. I’m also quite fortunate to have been to some lovely places too. One of my dream holidays was Borneo to go to the baby orang-utan orphanage.. that would be awesome! But then on a different day I would probably say anywhere (or multiple stops would be even better!) in Italy. I love Italy very very much. The food, the culture, the fashion… it’s my favourite place.

Tell us something not many people know about you?   Um, well this is very new and hardly anybody knows, but I’m currently working on a a brand new venture.  Yosa, is my new online boutique launching soon selling statement jewelry and accessories. I’m so excited!

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…

debbiecollage2 zps4662d55c Style Sessions Fashion Link Up: The Metallic Dress

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!
