Fall Beauty

st-john-dress-madewell-cardigan-1st-john-dress-madewell-cardigan-2st-john-dress-madewell-cardigan-3chanel-fall-makeup-beauty There’s something about new makeup that will always make me feel giddy with excitement. Here’s my current face routine:

  • Foundation: Giorgio Armani ‘Lasting Silk’ UV SPF 20 in 6.0. I’m also interested in trying their Luminous Silk version to see if it makes a difference for me. I love that a little goes a long way with this foundation.
  • Contour: Charlotte Tilbury ‘Filmstar Bronze & Glow’ (I only use the bronze portion to lightly add definitation along my lower cheek and jawline). It lasts a really long time!
  • Blush: Giorgio Armani ‘Fluid Sheer’ in No. 11. I think this color is beautiful – I haven’t tried any others because I’m obsessed!
  • Concealer: Cle de Peau Beaute Concealer in Almond. I thought it was crazy to buy this $70 concealer but instantly fell in love with how it made my eyes appear so much more awake. Plus, I’ve been using the same tube for 1.5 years! My previous concealer would last only 2 months so the math works out hugely in favor of this expensive one. (Now, whether or not the product should still be in use after over a year is a question for the experts…)

Next up, my summary for eyes and lips! But here’s a teaser: my new Chanel eye quad (the only eye shadow that doesn’t get greasy on my lids by the end of the day) from their latest Fall collection!

style-mafia-top-1style-mafia-top-2 Good morning! Still trying to get through all of my photos from New York! I wore this frilly, flirty top to the Jenny Packham show (beautiful gowns, as always!!). I had packed so many pairs of shoes (just in case, you never know!) and yet the ones that remained on my feet, for the most part, were the ones that were flat. These have become a favorite.

Hope you’re having a good start to your week!


Top – Style Mafia (for $69! here)
Jeans – Frame Denim (also here in mid-rise)
Sunglasses – Fendi (here)
Purse – Loewe (here | also here in black)

vince-satin-skirt-1vince-satin-skirt-2vince-satin-skirt-3 Good morning and happy Monday! Fall is all about the textures: velvet, wool, silk, and yes, satin! I found this skirt at Nordstrom: the cut, length, fabric and color were perfect for me. I would love to pair it again with a velvet top (like this one in a similar color family), or with its matching tank top. But today, I’m wearing it with a cozy, slouchy sweater (it’s $98 here!) and tee.


Skirt – Vince (here | also has a matching top here. More satin pieces to fall for: here, here and here)
Top – Lamixx
Sweater – Madewell (I have the camel version from last year too – coziest sweater! here)
Heels – Gucci (similar under $125 in white here and with a lower, thinner heel here)
Sunglasses – Fendi (here)
Purse – Loewe (here in black)
Lips – Shiseido “Rose Crush” (here)

More Fall texture on my wishlist:
