Hot Trend Item: The ZARA Skort

SKORT= Skirt+Short.

If you haven't seen this magnificently revolutionary item that is all the rave this season, then you obviously live under a rock.

ZARA came out with what I deem, this season's must-have item, around last Fall: The skort. (emphasis on the).
This hot-ticket item has been seen everywhere from the runways of fashion week to common day street style with fashionistas everywhere rocking it in classy and chic ensembles.

This item is also a favorite amongst fashion bloggers so it was inept that I chronicle all of its happenings and endless outfit possibilities.

On Campus Fashion: Grungy Stripes

Featuring on campus fashion is of particular interest and importance to me as it allows me to showcase to my readers (you!) some of the unique, trendy ensembles that students are rocking, especially at my school.

The season is not quite yet over but one can still keep hold of their individual style.
I was attracted to this ensemble as it perfectly captured the essence of a typical grungy look: 
Long circle shirt? check. Black tights? check. Black body con skirt? check. And of course, no grunge outfit would be complete without these, combat boots? check.

Check out today's On Campus Fashionista below and let me know what you think! 

If you liked this, be on the lookout for more campus fashion!

Quick Beauty Fix Trick: Flawless Face Finish

Keep your foundation in check.

On-the-go and need to upkeep that flawless foundation that took you forever to perfect?

Meet your new best friend: Loose setting powder.

Dab this baby on over your foundation with a soft, cotton powder pad over your nose, cheekbones and forehead primarily for an untouched, flawless finish.

A powder from Laura Mercier (I have this one) goes perfectly with just about any foundation and concealer combination.

Loose setting powder is so multi wonderful as not only does it set your foundation and makeup in place it adds a just wright matte finish to your entire look.

It is all about finding the right balance between the foundation and the powder and not over doing either. Only applying the powder to select areas as apposed to your entire face to avoid the 'ghost look'.

Go ahead and try it out!

❤ V-Day Ensemble ❤


Whether you're kicking it with some girlfriends or plan on going all out with that special someone, I will help you draw attention to yourself in all the right places. Check it out!

This St. Valentine's Day take a risk and go much softer with your outfit colors for opting for softer hues such as peach and beige instead of the shockingly bright red and magenta. Play up the colors by pairing your pump heels with the same hue of peachyness and save the pop and dazzle for your nail color.

For makeup, try out a nude eyeshadow palette, NAKED 3 from Urban Decay is perfect for achieving this and a sultry, sensual bold lip in your softest shade of pink or purple.

Now you are ready for your romantic night out!
