Warby Parker Winter Collection 2014 Top Ten Faves

WPWC2014

Greetings Spiiirits!

Sending love & light to you all,

Today was the launch of Warby Parker’s 2014 Winter Collection! Warby Parker is a brand that seeks to provide affordable and stylish glasses. Their versatile selections offer a vast variety that caters to both fashion or prescription needs. And though I do not wear prescription lenses, I love fashion lenses and have a blood lust for stunning frames. (Not to mention the fact that Triiin has been in dire need of new prescription lenses, so we’re shopping around). Given Triin’s need & my blood lust, I could not resist picking my top ten fave selections from their newest collection!

Now for the Top Ten-sies…in no particular order

From this collection, I was predominately inspired by the earthen leopard-like prints and the cuts that featured heavy top frame with slender frames on the bottom.I really think that cut is very face flattering and the classic black in this style do not disappoint either. I love both the feminine and masculine variations on this style (for example the very feminine, cat-like cut of  #6, in contrast to the more unisex cut of #9). I’d say my top pick for eyeglasses would be #6 and for sunglasses would be #3 (and my guess is Triiin’s top fave would probably be #1 for eyeglasses and #3 for sunnies as well). 🙂

{P.S.: True to their belief that everyone has a right to see and their desire to make sure everyone who needs glasses can have access, Warby Parker works with non-profits like VisionSpring to make sure that for every pair of glasses sold a pair is distributed to someone in need. So when you buy their frames you can feel even better knowing you are lending someone else the gift of vision as well. Which is pretty Ah-mazing!}

Check out the eyeglasses and sunglasses in their new collection for yourself and tell me, which ones are your faves??

Trendspotting Tuesdays: Orange Lipstick + Finding Your Shade

Orange lipstick is hot, Hot, HOT for the summer.

Check out a couple of celebs that have taken to rocking the trendy color…

Now orange is a color that can easily look tacky and loud if done incorrectly. However, it can look great on any skin tone, if you pick the right shade for you.

A Couple Tips on Finding the Correct Shade

Light Skin: Choose a very true-to-orange shade, it’ll pop against your bright skin
Medium Skin: Choose an orange with golden undertones, it’ll accentuate your skin and give it warmth without bronzer
Dark Skin: Choose darker oranges with more brown to brick undertones, it will be less harsh on your tone while giving you the poppy look you desire

For all shades: Always opt for liner whenever possible, its the secret to long-lasting and defined lips in any lipshade. (You can buy a beauty supply lipstick and make it look like a million bucks with liner, Trust Me.) Also if you can’t find your exact shade in the stores, don’t be afraid to mix colors and liners until you do!

The right orange lip gives you a fun look and a warm summer glow. And with these tips & tricks in your arsenal there is no need to fear getting it wrong. Go forth & get funky in orange!

Twenty One : The Birthday Post

As many of you may know, I just made 21 this past weekend. I am still reeling with excitement from all the festivities! ^_^ . On Friday I got my nails and toes done and went to dinner with my family. On Saturday (my actual b-day), I had an early dinner with my family and got to see a couple friends who came from out of town to visit me for the occasion. When I got home my lovely roommate had hung streamers from my door and had a bottle waiting for me. Later that night, my lovely and very awesome friends surprised me with a surprise party for my birthday!!! It was a glow-in-the-dark/blacklight party and it was sooooo much fun!! I also received many gifts with include but are not limited to, bottles of wine and liquor, the Hunger Games DVD, and my very own blacklight!!!!!! The next day my friends and I hung out and went on an excursion to a little place called Dago’s and shared quite the bonding experience. I just want to share my bday experience with you all as only photos can so….here goes!

Trendspotting : Neon

Color will always be a big trend for the Spring and Summer months. Its only right, as the weather brightens up, so does our wardrobe ! As we segue from Spring to Summer one big color trend that’s emerging is Neon. Whether its on a bag or boldly slathered on our nails, Neon is a must-have in our fashion arsenal. Here are a few items on my neon-wishlist for the season :

Image

These bold pink “South of 5th” sunnies from Urban Outfitters are perfect for the season! Wear them with any outfit for a bit of neon flare. They run about $16 and they are cat-eye glasses, a trend bonus!

Taking summer school maybe? I am, and Lord knows I will need a way to carry around my books. I could just use one of the handy shoulder bags I already own (that’s probably what i’ll actually do), but in my fashion fantasy land I’m walking around the campus with this baby on my back. I’m not too often a fan of backpacks, but this one screams chic.On sale for $29.99, this Baggu Neon Backpack can be purchased on fredflare.com. Lastly this bag was made from 100% recycled cotton canvas, an environmental plus!

Image

With its sassy cut and neon accents, this dress has just the right amount of spice. Perfect for a night out, it’s $29.90 and can be found on windsorstore.com

Image

Neon polish, oh yeahh! Probably the cheapest way to sport the neon trend, this nail polish and others like it only run about $4 and can be found in drugstores and your local Walmarts’ and Targets. I will definitely be getting some and putting it into effect ASAP!

Have a little fun with neon yourselves!

XOXO Jaz’
