Minimal makeup. Les Beiges for cheeks and a nude palette for eyes (with just one quick application of mascara)!

Beautiful detail on this sleeveless blouse makes it less casual, while still keeping you cool on hot summer days.

Just a splash of pink!

Just a tiny bit of pink, goes a long way!

This outfit all started with the shoes. All pink base, then dipped almost entirely in black leaving just a peep of pink at the front — so fun!
Loved this concept of just having only a tiny dash of the feature colour, so applied it to the remainder of the outfit.

Beige & Black

As the promise of springtime hangs in the air, one can now be brave enough to leave the house without the huge winter coat.
However, later in the day as the sun prepares to set, the weather does still require that one additional layer of warmth. So, another furry vest it is 🙂

I stumbled upon this ombre vest (mixed up amongst skirts at a sale) just a week after my shoe purchase.
The two match perfectly, and I love this combo! The soft fur and ombre colouring contrast with all black really well.

Glamour Kitty

Go and find your inner pussycat ladies – the feline frenzy is officially on!
To celebrate this and the fact that it is NYFW, Glamour Magazine got everyone out (even in the snow) to the Glamour Cat Fashion Concept Store.

I don’t need much of an excuse to be persuaded to head down to the Meatpacking district – and getting purr-alicious was a done deal!
See the cat craze below.

Cuckoo for Coco (Chanel that is)

SO – i feel like the world may have just spun off it’s axis….. not even joking.
I just encountered my first negative Chanel experience.

It’s ok ladies. Take a deep breath and have a calming Chamomile tea.
I can get through this.

Obsessed. The key word to describe my feelings for Chanel.
L-O-V-E the “double C” – i mean who doesn’t? No really – who? (furrowing brow in anger)

Then there is Karl, we’re on as first name basis… and don’t even get me started on the bags. I want each and every one.

My new Chanel Inimitable Intense mascara, delightful – the lip-gloss sample i received from the lovely lady at the counter, just gorgeous.
Everything they do is amazing. Elegant. Classic.

So you can see my conundrum when today the experience was devastating.
The mission was to find a BOLD lip color for this evening’s festivities – outfit was planned, this was the final piece of the evening puzzle.
After a robust conversation regarding bold pink versus bold oxblood tones, my friendly sales associate and I landed a striking  Levres Scintillantes in Myriad.
Great, happy shopper departed the store only to discover (an hour later when sharing my newly found love of daring lip-gloss with a friend) that what was placed into my goodie bag was in fact a nude colored gloss.  UMMM WHAT?
Racing back to the store (remember, this is an important piece to outfit completion for this evening) down a windy 7th Avenue – no coat – bumping into crowds.
I made it back to the counter, unable to find my original sales lady. After capturing the attention of another retail assistant I was informed they were sold out of that color.

SERIOUSLY??????????????????

So my outfit may now be ruined – and not sure I am  able to make it to dinner.
Does this stop me being cuckoo for Coco??
Let’s be honest, NO. The reason it was sold out is because their products ARE SO GOOD!!
I must continue on and find solace in a different lip color for the evening.

I will leave you with a few parting words from Coco herself.

“Fashion changes, but style endures.”
– Coco Chanel

Chanel love forever.
