Perfect for the office, J.Crew's classy leopard pencil skirt is a solid investment for $130. The look for less will help you look purrfectly polished for just under $25 (and it's a skirt I own myself). See if you can spot the real from the steal by clicking either image below!
Recently, I had the chance to review a complimentary box from Beauty Box 5, a cosmetic sampling program that delivers a beauty box with 4 to 5 beauty samples once a month for $12 ($30/quarterly, $100/yearly). Like many subscription services, Beauty Box 5 aims to introduce customers to the latest in hair care, skin care, makeup, fragrances, and anything beauty related. The goal is to introduce you to products that fit your lifestyle so you don't end up buying tons of products that just end up unused in your drawers or medicine cabinets. Subscribers receive products from brands of all scales to include luxury, organic, boutique, and more commonly known brands. Beauty Box 5 includes packet samples, deluxe, travel size and full size products, too.
I know I'm late to the party on this one, but here's what I thought. I'd love to hear your thoughts on Beauty Box 5 or any other subscription service you love!

Easing into the peplum trend? Take a cue from Mandy Moore and try a peplum tee paired with skinny jeans, loafer flats and a colorful bag (Mandy is carrying the Loeffler Randall 'Rider').

Earlier in the season, I had the chance to preview the new fall denim styles from Lucky Brand jeans. Each guest was gifted her choice of jeans, and I chose the Cate Skinny Stacks aka my new favorite blue jeans. Seriously, I've been living in these. The fabric is supersoft and the dark wash makes them easy to dress up or down. Typically you'll find me wearing my Cates with a striped top and flats, but I discovered that they look equally great with a funky blazer and heels. Hopefully you can look past my unglamorous deck (pretend I'm in Paris or something) and get inspired to style your fave jeans a bit differently this fall.
Please note: This is a follow-up to a sponsored post. Thanks again to Lucky Brand for the fab jeans!
Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week is just around the corner, and soon the entire fashion world will have their eyes fixed on New York City as designers showcase their spring collections for 2013. Here's a sneak peek at one of my favorite red carpet designers, Pamella Roland, who has dressed such celebrities as Jennifer Hudson, Emily Blunt and Mena Suvari, to name a few.
"For Spring 2013, the Pamella Roland collection is inspired by the iconic American artist Ellsworth Kelly. His stark black and white paintings are part of a body of work that resonate in particular because of their clean almost severe lines that speak to a harmony between the shapes that they create." —Pamella DeVos, designer of Pamella Roland
Peep more one sketch after the jump.
