Recently I’ve been obsessed with the model off-duty look consisting entirely of leather, fur, and bright red lipstick. I have all the accoutrements aside from the Céline bag…

the “almost” bob

Call me crazy, but recently I have struck by the urge to chop off all of my hair. Sometime shortly after turning 23 (quarter-life crisis?) my long locks started to feel more like I was trying to be a “Real Housewife” than the chic look I aspired towards.

While I wish I had the courage to chop it all off like Keira Knightley. I know that I will have to take it in babyyy steps. I probably won’t even have the courage to go for the shoulder-skimming bob à la Emily Blunt. So I think I’ll have to settle for the non-committal “midi” adopted by Jane Birkin, which is still probably considered long by some, but I think the blunt-cut makes it look modern enough to still be relevant. If only I were brave enough for the bangs…

What’s your hair thresh-hold? How short are you willing to chop your locks?

A New Beginning

“If you are brave enough to say goodbye, life will reward you with a new hello.”

After a two-year hiatus from blogging, I am finally back. It seems that within the past week I have had to saw a countless number of goodbyes to things that were no longer serving me–in order to begin with an entirely fresh start where I began, in Los Angeles. Things were finally–decisively–done with the boy who had been my romantic preoccupation for years, I left my job as a stylist at BCBG MAX AZRIA , and I packed up all of the items I had collected through my three years in San Diego after graduating from University.

The lessons I learned were many (which I will delve in to later)– the power of vulnerability, the importance of self-reliance, and the realization that the circumstances around me may change but I always need to stay true to my vision at the end of the day.

strong brows

Photo 454

I don’t know about you, but nothing screams ‘chic’ to me more appealing to me than a strong brow. I still look back in horror at the pictures of myself in Junior High because I over-plucked them so much! Now, I seem to have swung to the exact opposite extreme and look to Megan Fox, Hilary Rhoda, and Brooke Shields for guidance (or their makeup artists ;) )

Yesterday, while I was waiting for traffic to die down so that I could embark to Los Angeles I did a bit of experimenting and I think I might stick with the results of shading in my eyebrows a bit fuller. Do you find yourselves endlessly battling with the tweezers or voraciously filling in your brows? Do tell…

pink in the afternoon

Hand me my purse, will you, darling? A girl can’t read that sort of thing without her lipstick.

-Holly Golightly, Breakfast at Tiffany’s

I have found it, mes chéries. The elusively seductive shade that Audrey Hepburn was wearing in Breakfast At Tiffany’s. Ever since I saw her apply it in the famous cab scene, I knew I had to track a dupe down. The one I found is called “Pink in the Afternoon” by Revlon, and I am already in love… what do you think?
