Happy Halloween

Nicole Richie took to her Facebook last week and urged ladies to embrace modesty this Halloween.  Best. Advice.  Ever.

"Girls, can we all pledge that we will not dress slutty this Halloween?  The jig is up." Nicole Richie.

Below are some of my favorite celebrity Halloween costumes.

Gwen Stefani as Cinderella.

Nicole Richie as Jesse from Toy Story 2

Liv Tyler as an Indian Princess

Annalynne McCord as the White Queen from Alice in Wonderland.

What were you this Halloween?

...1st Snowfall...

Although I'm only starting to just now enjoy fall, I can't help but get a little excited for snow and winter time.  This editorial featuring Eniko Mihalik in Harper's Bazaar  is a winter wonderland come to life.  The adorable animals, the luxurious furs, the awesome rings (just look at her hands!) it's a bit of a fashion fantasy.

Give A Go

Some trends I normally avoid, but might just be testing out thanks to some creative editorials.

Plum-hued lips are trend I've averted - until now.  A look that I once though looked slightly 90's/matronly,  looks fresh  and autumnal when paired with structured hair and feminine attire.

While smooth, sleek hair is generally the goal, I've found that I love adding a little texture and call me crazy, a little frizz (for lack of a better word).  I'm sick of the stick straight hair trends, and think it's time us ladies go for a more natural look.  

I've always despised socks with loafers or driving shoes.  But this photo has me second guessing myself.    The  white socks paired with crisp slacks and a reptile shoe is very cute indeed.

Yes, I'm aware that overalls are making a comeback.  Katie Holmes and Alexa Chung have been spotted in the denim disasters and I'm sorry, it's a trend I won't be trying.  However, these silk, refined overalls (I don't even really think they're overalls, they're more like a "pantsuit") are downright adorable.  I would try.

...Good Thoughts & Goals...

I'm a strong believer in setting goals and doing all that's possible to reach them.  It's what I've done my whole life and when I don't do it, I tend to feel down.   Who says that New Years has to be when goals are set?  It's important we think outside the box, and strive and push ourselves.  And not just when a certain time of year tells us to.  These are the thoughts that have been occupying my brain, and I'm strategically putting together a list of things I want to accomplish.   Time is fleeting, it's important to assess what it is exactly you want to do with it.

Artfully Autumn

I've been talking about these darn YSL Arty rings for way too long.  When I first found them, I was in LOVE, no questions asked, give me two in every color.   Then everyone started wearing them.   And I of course lost interest.  But *true love* doesn't falter, and I still can't get these gorgeous rings out of my mind.   This fall they've been revamped  and corals and turquoises and being replaced with ambers and golds, and my decision on what style/color I should get has gotten that much more difficult.

Big Eyes & Pink Lipstick

I think that if I could look like anyone it might be Amanda Seyfried.  Those big green eyes, and pouty lips have me a bit envious.  And although her looks are other-worldly, she proves to be quite down to earth in her interview with British Glamour.   Love these shots and just had to share them.  


Happy Thoughts

"Walk with the dreamers, the believers, the courageous, the cheerful, the planners, the doers, the successful people with their head in the clouds and their feet on the ground.  Let their spirit ignite a fire within you, to leave this world better than when you found it."
