Interesting factoid about me, I don't like roses as a flower. So, Paul doesn't give me an arrangement of roses - but that doesn't mean that I don't like roses! In fact, I love it in my lip gloss, my toners, skincare and so much more. Last week, while I was in Philly, Paul went to Lush and got a number of bath products that smelled like roses. It was such an amazing aroma and of course when I began to think about this week's Shoe Sundays - I thought of rose/mauve hued shoes. The inspiration comes from Jill Stuart.
Last night, Kitten Lounge closed its coverage for the day by heading over to The Strand Hotel to see Victor de Souza whose collection's theme was Le Carnival du Destin which brought bold hues from vibrant pinks, baroque muted tones in mauve and purple as well as an amazing yellow gown. Here are some favorite picks of the night.
Last year I checked out Houghton and was amazed by their Fall/Winter 2012 collection which had a number of looks that were white as well as great accessories that included cuffs and rings. This season I headed back stage to check out what could be expected from this season which included creams, pops of pink and an aesthetic which incorporated the UES granny done in a trendy way!
Houghton presented it's runway show for NYFW FW2013 as apart of Milk with their lead hairstylist for the L'Oreal Professionnel team, Joseph DiMaggio who created these low buns that were so simple that you could imagine wearing this to run errands as well as for a glam night out. This post will be updated for how you can achieve this look and how you can go about doing it yourself!
Nails were also a major highlight as they were in tones of mauves and blues which looked like a mesh that was placed on the nail which extended the "old lady vibe". Finally as an Accessories Expert, I loved taking a peek at the fab pieces that would be worn during the show today. As someone who loves a bold piece, this didn't disappoint by any means!
Who doesn't love Brandy Norwood? She has a phenomenal voice, acts and very much so comes across as the girl next door! Last night, she hit the Red Carpet arrivals at yesterday's 2012 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand. Obviously we'll update you on the pieces that brand is wearing but we're loving the blush/mauve hued fringe dress that allowed her to show her inner Grecian Goddess. Her little clutch was fabulous and I love that she didn't skimp on the bracelets and rings (although I would have loved to have seen a wider arm cuff as well as a statement ring! Although her peep toe pumps were cute, I would have streamlined the look just a touch by pairing it with this Lanvin Cone Sandal - it creates a lightness and more of the golden look that she has throughout her accessories choices!
