Inspired by a shoot styled by Mandy of Oracle Fox where gold leaf was applied in the form of makeup and jewelry, I immediately had to try it myself. It’s an instantaneous and temporary solution for a lack of bling. Plus, it looks super fly! This technique may even come in handy this Halloween season when you decide you’ll want to dress up as a Fendi-bot . . . or C-3P0.
One thing I love seeing at any time of the year, no matter the season, is a woman in a great pair of trousers. I have a tumblr dedicated to Wearing The Pants which gives me great joy to fill up with inspiring imagery (and I’m lucky enough to get some help from a few wonderful contributors). I’ve noticed a lot of brightly coloured pants popping up in the street style blogs these days – which is an especially nice trend for those of you going into winter now… injecting a sense of brightness into a dreary day is always a good thing.
As you should know by now, we are huge fans of Lem Lem - especially their block printed scarves with pops of shocking neon colors. Of course, we found it only fair to share the love so thanks to Lem Lem, we are giving away not one, but two scarves: the Leli scarf and the Rustic scarf! Simply leave a comment, follow Lem Lem on Tumblr, and two winners will be selected at random on Monday, October 10th. (Sorry, limited to US & Canada residents only. Winner will be announced and contacted by email. Good luck! xx) ** Contest is now closed, congratulations to ErikaJane & Trina!
