Giuseppe Zanotti vs. Charlotte Russe

I am always down for a new pair of Giuseppe Zanotti shoes. However, if I can find an equally fantastic pair for less I am not mad either. These pumps are so cute! They will spice up any skirt or dress. If you love these Giuseppe Zanotti just as much as I do but not the price Charlotte Russe has a comparable price for less.

Vegan Makeup Brushes

I have heard so many positive things about vegan makeup brushes. I really would love to try them out to see if they are what everyone says they are. Vegan makeup brushes are made of taklon and/or nylon (beautylish.com). A lot of companies are now starting to carry them because they have become so popular (onegreenplant.org)

Benefits of using vegan makeup brushes consist of:

-can be used for both cream and powdered base makeup

-easier to clean

-repel bacteria and dirt better than animal hair

-shed less so they last longer

-less expensive than animal hair

-hypoallergenic and safe for sensitive skin

Companies that sell vegan makeup brushes:

-100% pure

-the body shop

-Kelly Quan

-Obessive Compulsive Cosmetics

-Too Faced

-Urban Decay

-Charm Makeup

Style Book

I recently heard about a new app called Style Book. In my opinion, this app is so awesome! It has up to 90 different style features. The features are broken up into 10 different categories: looks, closet, packing list, inspiration library, calendar, shopping, size tracker, style expert, style stats, and wifi share. The three categories that I could not wait to play with were looks, closet, and packing list. With those three categories alone you can completely organize your clothes and have several outfits planed for any occasion. I really love creating outfits and trying to see how many unique outfits I can make using the same item. So those three categories were enough for me to purchase the app. So far the only two negatives about the app are that it does cost $3.99 and it is currently only available for iPads and iPhones. Style Book does have an email list for Android users to be contacted when their Android version is complete. For those of my readers that do have Apple products I would love to hear what you think of Style Book!

I really like vests and always have. This past year they have taken a new form and I love it. My favorites are the long ones. Vests are great for layering and can be paired with everything. You can dress them up or dress them down and they look great on everyone. Here are some of my favorites vests out now.

Fendi is doing a very cool charity event. It involves five iconic New York women and Fendi’s loved 3baguette handbag. Fendi has invited musician Rihanna, actress Sarah Jessica Parker, artist Rachel Feinstein, model Jourdan Dunn, and blogger Leandra Medine to personalize their own 3Baguette handbag. Each of them has designed unique 3Baguette handbags that will be auctioned to benefit 5 charities of their choice. I am in love with Jourdan Dunn design. I would love to hear what my readers think of the 5 designs.

Looking at DSquared 2 Spring/Summer 2015 Runway Show has me so ready for Spring!  They used such bright vibrant colors.  Each design has a very cool feel, but none are too dramatic.  These cool pieces can be paired with very chic and feminine pieces and make outstanding outfits because of the colors and silhouettes that were used in this collection.  Here are my favorite looks from the DSquared 2 Spring/Summer 2015 Runway Show.
