Celebrity Fashion Lust – Golden Globes 2015 Edition

I know, I know, that post never materialized, but you didn’t think I’d leave you hanging on the dresses?! Here’s my roundup of the celebrity fashion from the Golden Globes 2015.

From talking with people on Facebook last night, I know that some of my faves were not that popular, but, hey, this is my blog. 😉

Let’s start with the good:

Celebrity Fashion Golden Globes 2015 To be honest, I didn’t even know who Julia Goldani Telles was, but I just knew that I ADORED the color of her dress. I felt like, overall, there was a lot of blahness on the red carpet, and this Carmen Marc Valvo grabbed me immediately. (more…)

My Favorite Places: Paperdolls boutique, Paris

Paperdolls

When I started this blog, I mentioned that I was going to write about some of my favorite places in the world. My recent whirlwind 23-hour visit to Paris was a great place to start, since I knew I had to pop into Paperdolls boutique, one of my favorite places in Paris.

OOTD: Flower Power

OOTD And so we’ve arrived at the last of my Long Island City industrial OOTD photo shoots. *sad face* One more Fashion Friday for you. I need to find someone to take some photos for me at my new job, stat!

OOTD: Ready for my closeup

Gratuit

*This entry has been prescheduled to post while I am out of the country, so if you comment and I don’t reply right away, that’s why.*

When you work in Long Island City and are looking for places to shoot an OOTD, your choices are pretty limited. The day these photos were taken, Danielle and I meandered over to what turned out to actually be Silvercup Studios. Luckily, no one kicked us out! Alas, I was not discovered, and am still working my day job. Le sigh.

What you can’t see is that the light above Stage B was lit, meaning they were taping behind there.

Wishlist Wednesday #28 – Vintage Scarf

My recent obsession is a vintage scarf. Okay, to be honest, I have been wanting one for a while now, but it’s suddenly resurfaced in urgency. The summer is coming up, and I’m trying to figure out a way to keep my hair neat when the wind blows it around. Because of the curls, I can’t pull it back or put it up without ruining it.

Then I started thinking about all the old Hollywood stars who wore scarves and how glamorous it looked.

Wishlist Wednesday #25 – Delphine Manivet pour La Redoute Dress

So, today’s edition is an amalgamation of two desires, one already expressed, and one found in the course of researching a different week’s.

FOTD: MAC Heroine lipstick

Affilier Acheté

Yeah, I fell for the hype and caved. MAC Heroine lipstick is now in my (rather extensive) collection.

I mean, there’s just something so striking about the way Lorde looks in purple lipstick that appealed to me. And I have dark hair and pale skin. So why not try?

The Search for the Perfect Red: By Terry Rouge Terrybly in Terrific Rouge

Affilier Acheté

Ever since I first tried it on in October, I’ve been dreaming of By Terry Rouge Terrybly in Terrific Rouge. (Say THAT ten times fast.) Terrible name aside, at $49 a pop, By Terry Rouge Terrybly lipsticks are an investment, even when you are employed. So it took me a while to work my way round to getting this.

And, guys? I’m in trouble. I want this formula in every color now. And I’m saying this about a lipstick, a RED lipstick, that’s not matte!

Wishlist Wednesday #19 – Mrs. Pomeranz Dresses

If you know me at all, you would understand what my face looked like when I first found the Mrs. Pomeranz site.

*pause for you to go look*

Sometimes, Bloglovin’ is amazing. I found it through a blog that was recommended based on a different blog I had just followed. Convoluted? Yes. Kismet? Yes, indeed.

Here’s what the blog has to say about the company:

Mrs.Pomeranz is a small sewing studio located in London and Moscow. Specialized seamstresses create our beautiful, 1950s ’New Look Silhouette’ dresses from the highest quality English and Italian fabrics.
Mrs.Pomeranz was created by Dasha Pomeranz in 2009. Dasha collected 1950s dresses for several years. Running her vintage shop ‘Good Bye London’ helped Dasha realize that a classical 50-s silhouette is the most flattering cut of all: these are dresses that can make you feel a little prim and proper… but a lot more feminine! Dasha found that the demand for 50s dresses outstripped the amount of vintage gems available. So she decided to create new dresses inspired by the 50s. With her trusted constructor she carefully reworked original patterns to fit the modern female figure: vintage cuts don’t necessarily fit today’s women, they can be too full in the chest and too thin in the waist. But Mrs.Pomeranz’s dresses fit perfectly: the cut slims the figure, the length compliments the legs. Thus the ‘New Look’ collection was born: dresses full of vintage grace but with a contemporary feel.
We aim to make Mrs.Pomeranz’s dresses your favourite!

It’s all true. I couldn’t pick just one that I wanted, so I’m here to show you my top 3.

Haul: Topshop The Damned Collection from Cult Beauty

Topshop The Damned Collection from Cult Beauty

I was so super excited when Cult Beauty had the Topshop The Damned Collection in its winter sale. I’d been dying to get my hand on Velvet Lips in Velveteen Ribbon ever since I saw it on I Covet Thee, but I had no money to buy it at the time, and then it sold out in the US. I literally bought the collection set for just the lipstick, but it was worth it, because it’s a complete face in a bag!

Topshop The Damned Collection

Funny story: Apparently nail polish is now considered a hazardous material, and so you can no longer ship it from the UK. In fact, because of this, it wasn’t letting me make my purchase. The amazing people at Cult Beauty responded to me right away and explained the situation, and said that they would remove the nail polish from the kit and send the rest to me. Awesome.

On to the look!
