Review ~
Great lipsticks, great colors, great value!!! I am really digging the reformulated Milani Statement Lipstick. The variety of colors is phenomenal and is certain to compliment a variety of skin tones and complexions. The collection is massive but  I only selected the three shades because they grabbed my attention the most.

The lipsticks are housed in a plastic, gold tube. The packaging is perhaps the only disappointing feature of these lipsticks. They felt cheap and the gold plastic does a great job of picking up and keeping finger prints and smudges. The packaging is definitely has no impact on the performance and quality of this lipstick.

You can purchase these lipsticks from the Milani Cosmetics website ($5.49) or at your local CVS, Target, Walgreens drugstores.

NOTE: Milani Lipsticks are sealed to prevent tapering and testing 🙂

Fashion Steal – Tammy Plank Wedge Sandal (Target)

TAMMY Plank Wedge Sandal by TARGET

Women's Xhilaration® Tammy Plank Wedge Sandal - Yellow

Review
I literally stumbled across this adorable wedge sandal during one of my weekly shopping trips to Target. I honestly had no intentions of purchasing anything other than the items on my shopping list. But, you know how things are; you cannot go into Target without picking up something EXTRA!

Well, let me just say that this was an extra worth its weight in gold. I love everything about this sandal. The color, the fit, the design and the overall look is so chic and pleasing to the eye. They add the right amount of color to any outfit without being over the top. The Tammy is your essential summer sandal. Dressed up or down, either way you have a definite winner throughout the spring/summer season.

Grade/Recommendation
A
A wonderful fashion addition at a great budget friendly price

Style Points
The Tammy would look great paired with: Denim/chambray shorts, sundresses, denim/jeans, and chambray shirtdresses…pair with accessories and belts in the same mustard color family.

Price/Availability
29.99

Available in mustard and black
Available in store. Click here to purchase online.

Look Book ~ Vol. 1

Hello My Darlings…

Today, I am sharing a bit of my personal style and personality. This style post features a delightfully sweet emerald dress I purchased from a local boutique in the Atlanta area. I wanted the dress to remain the focal point so I didn’t do “too much” in terms of accessories. I really like how everything came together. A great color to welcome the upcoming spring season. I have listed additional details below. Hope you guys like it…more “My Style” blog posts to come.

Enjoy! Smooches…

Shoe Review ~ Shoemint Lindsey

LINDSEY by SHOEMINT

shoe_side II

Review
The Lindsey by Shoemint is a beautiful, classically designed stiletto with a solid structure. It has a great mix of traditional and trendy ~ peep toe, ankle strap, no platform ~ features popular in footwear for the spring/summer season. I was attracted to the Lindsey because of its’ retro charm and versatility. It has the potential to last through several seasons, if not years, in my wardrobe.
 
The Lindsey has a charming snake embossed design, a moderately thin 4.5 inch heel and an adjustable ankle strap. Because there is no platform for additional support the instep is quite steep. This initially caused some discomfort because the ball of the foot takes most of the pressure. A gel insert should provide some additional support and increase overall comfort.
 
Grade/Recommendation
B
I really like the Lindsey and would recommend it to those looking to add a smart, fun, versatile shoe to their collection.
 
Style Points
The Lindsey would look great paired with your favorite LBDs, a pair of dark rinse skinny jeans or bright trouser shorts.  
 
Price/Availability
79.99, Black or White

MAC Archie’s Girls Lipglass Review & Swatches

HI GUYS!!! I have a review of the ARCHIE’S GIRLS Collection from MAC!!!

This collection is absolutely adorable. I admit, I was definitely a fan of the Archie’s comic books found at the grocery store check out section years ago. I was partial to Betty and Archie hooking up but Veronica was always there to spoil everything…LOL! Well this particular collection does an excellent job of capturing the girl next door style of Betty and the vampy, sexy personality of Veronica. This collection is huge and there is something for everyone to like. I purchased 6 items – 3 lipglasses and 3 lipsticks. This post will showcase the lipglasses with a review of the lipsticks coming shortly after 🙂

MAC Archie’s Girls collection is available @ MAC Cosmetics, Nordstrom, Macy’s and Dillard’s.
*Look-out for “free shipping” codes from MAC Cosmetics for online orders
**Nordstrom offers free shipping on all online purchases
**Free shipping from Macy’s with a $50 online beauty purchase

Zara (Fall/Winter 2012) Shoe Haul

We have a ZARA shoe haul y’all!!!!

Recently, Zara had their annual Fall/Winter clothing, shoes and accessories sale. I managed to grab some amazing deals while shopping their online store. So, for those that don’t know, I am a heel, platform, stiletto wearing woman. I only own one pair of sneakers, a few pairs of flats but everything else is at least 4 inches or higher. I adore Zara’s court shoes. So I grabbed 2 pairs of court shoes and yes, 2 pairs of adorable flats. I mean, there is no way a true fashionista could pass up on these beauties…lol.

Anyhoo, I am, as always, very pleased with my purchases. Each shoe was well made, well designed and fit great. I had no problems with the details or structure of each shoe and will definitely be adding more and more shoes from Zara to my collection.  SN: Another shoe haul featuring more from Zara and Shoemint will be coming soon.

So, lets take a look at the shoes…

Velvet Fantasy Ballerina (35.90/19.00 sale price)…REALLY! 🙂
Black Velvet and Cobalt Blue Flat (pairs perfectly with dark rinse skinny jeans)
