As many of you know, the 360 of what I do beyond Kitten Lounge also includes my role as an Accessories Expert. Here recently, I have been working on projects (soon to be announced) where people will ask who have I styled/dressed or who do I wish to dress and how I go about obtaining them. I thought about this when I happened to see images from Saturday night's event for Spike TV with Eddie Murphy: One Night Only. I loved seeing how Eddie's girlfriend, Paige Butcher was dressed. There is something about keeping it simple, stunning and regal so as to compliment your date on his big night while being phenomenal!
Paige is an Australian model who has graced a number of covers including Maxim, Fitness and more. In addition she has appeared in commercials, movies, etc. To be clear I have never met nor have never styled this laid back beauty; however, I can tell she has an inner boho chic vibe which I am drawn to those sensibilities when it comes to styling as you can mix glam and natural elements together. Although I think she looks great, as an Accessories Expert, I would definitely enhance her look with the following:
I would have loved to have seen her rock these Cabochon earrings with Lapis Lazuli (I have been obsessed with this stone since I was in 3rd grade and found that it has been used in many of the jewelry and tombs of Pharoahs! These earrings by Kendra Scott are glam but have a bit of an earthy nature which can be worn for an event or just around town. This Mallary Marks ring is stunning and dynamic. Catherine Weitzman has been one of my fave designers for a number of years and I love this gold leaf cuff. Finally, I would have swapped clutches for this fabulous Nancy Gonzalez blue python clutch has edge which can be rocked with denim to grab drinks with the girls. Together this look is enhanced and yet still looks fabulous with her dress and nude pumps!
As we have buzzed about on the site for the past few days, we're officially kicking off Spring Break 2011! From now through April 29th, we will showcase fun looks to prep you for Spring Break, Summer vacations and so much more. Of course we had to get you accessorized in and out of the cabana! I'm loving the super cute romper from Seafolly which is perfect when you're grabbing lunch as well as hanging out in the beach. This Australian brand has a number of suits, dresses and coverups that you will love! Of course you can never go wrong with DVF and I'm loving this print infused suit who has pops of color and who doesn't love turquoise?
We love the Spring because we know that it means we're pretty sure that the snow and severe dips in temperature are done! But the Spring is also a little up and down and makes us uneasy when it comes to how we're dressing! But one thing is undeniable, it gets us in the mood to add pops of color in our closet and looking forward to the summer! In addition, we pack our bags to warmer locales in hopes of getting a bit of a jump start on the warm weather! Thursday night, Kitten Lounge presented Kimmie's Gimmies with a fab group of fellow bloggers - sharing many of my favorite finds and musts for this season! On Monday, we will be in full Spring Break mode for the next two weeks showing you the best in bikinis and what goes best with them! With so many fun things going on, we had to swoon over Seafolly for our mini kick off today, an Australian brand that has a number of super cute looks. You'll see the behind the scenes look from their photoshoot to get you in the mood!
Oh yeah! #KLTweetOut got super sexy this week - maybe the fact that CurveNV took place out in Vegas had something to do with it? As a former lingerie model, I was super happy to have two brands involved within this week's #KLTweetOut! So for those that need a little background (and you can also see some of our previous #KLTweetOuts here), this is a method of sharing amazing brands not only on the weekly post each Friday but through our Social Networks! This way, your brand's site and networks get introduced to out and hopefully you have news eyes and followers! We use the hashtag so that you can search who is apart of this as it begins each Mon and concludes on Sun. Every week, there's a new brand and for those brands that participate, you can do as many weeks as you wish. If you'd like to get involved, find out right here!
So this week we brought bling with Calico Juno Designs! I've known about this brand for quite some time and they have been featured in Brides Magazine as well as The Knot! Whether you select a piece that you find on their website or create their own, they have a number of colors to add some pop into your wardrobe!.
I was so excited to be introduced to The Bra Fit Expert! I feel that undergarments are always an area where people have questions and yet where do you go? In addition to getting your questions answered, you can also purchase bras, panties and more! Follow them on Twitter at @TheBraFitExpert as well as their Facebook Fan Page so that you can find out about new items that are hitting their site as well as events!
Cake Lingerie hit the CurveNV tradeshow this past week from the 16th - 18th, you may have seen that their hashtag was @KLCurveNVTweetOut as we shared info about their booth. What I love about this Australian based lingerie company is that they will be in quite a few stores in the US and they ensure that women who are mommies to be as well as nursing have no excuse when it comes to looking sexy! From bras, undies and lingerie they have fab items! In addition, when you are gifting these items, I love that it comes in a cake box with rose petals! I'm nowhere near having a child but I have attended baby showers and would definitely gift this in a heartbeat! Follow this luscious brand on Twitter at @CakeLingerie and then follow them on their Facebook Fan Page as they have a number of amazing pieces here!
You'll still hear some tweets through now and the end of the weekend and of course, we can't wait to share some fab tweets starting next week! If you're interested in having your brand involved, definitely let us know!
The first time I saw Model Co, I was in Sephora. I would later learn that it was an Australian brand that definitely knew a thing or two about beauty. I enjoyed seing the pink and white containers and loved that the products looked so simple while being absolutely amazing. I have had the pleasure of receiving some great products from their PR team and can't wait to share my thoughts on them with you! I have to say that I was so excited to try their Shimmer Airbrush Illuminiser!
I love that as you spray your skin, you're not only pleased with the shimmer that it leaves behind. Not only does this create an amazing glow, but it also has an amazing smell - which leaves you breathing in Frangipani (my school's flower interestingly enough). Not only do you smell amazing but you will be relaxes as you have chamomille and vitamin E to calm you as well. So you'll always look completely refreshed.
I definitely love the price point and the fact that it is so accessible at Sephora as well. With a full line to take care of your skin, you'll pamper your way through every look your're going for from illuminating skin that sparkles to having a nice tan that you can apply yourself (more on that for next week) and much more. I can't wait to share with you and I have to say that there is nothing wrong with having these cute colors and containers to brighten up my bathroom!
