SPRING/SUMMER ESSENTIALS.

Hiiiii :)
Happy Sunday. I hope everyone has had a nice weekend.
Since Spring is already here and Summer is around the corner, I wanted to share what I feel are the most essential items to have or to invest in for Spring and Summer. 

Here are mine !


1. Colorful bikini top
Especially during summertime ! :)
This neon orange is perfect and it would go great with any basic color bottom.
I purchased this one at Target a couple months ago. They have so many cute ones.


2. Fun bag.
During Spring and Summer, it is always a nice pop of color to add to any outfit.
I am obsessed with this blue, it is just perfect.
Find this one HERE and I am LOVING this one by Rebecca Minkoff


3. Cute comfy Sandals
I think they are a must-have during summer and could really make an outfit.
The blues ones are from Target, the beige-studded ones are from Old Navy and the deep purple ones are from SJP.


4. Statement Necklace
Makes any outfit stand out.
This one is from Forever 21.




5. Floral/Floral-print
In my opinion, it just screams summer and you could never go wrong with it.





6. Basic everyday make-up
Especially during summer, I do not like putting on too much makeup, I always keep it simple.

Products I use :
Clinique Dramatically different moisturizing gel for Oily skin
MAC powder foundation in the shade C4
MAC concealer in NW25
Rimmel Stay Matte powder
Proenza Schouler for MAC lipstick in Woodrose ( I'm obsessed!)
EM cosmetics lipstick in Don't tell mom (amazing pink) !!


Let me know what are your spring.summer essentials... :)
I wanna know !

Love,

Proenza Schouler for MAC cosmetics

Helloooo ! :) I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend.

It is always refreshing to see when a well-known designer pairs up with a makeup line to do a collaboration, and this one is no exception. It really shows the essence of Proenza Schouler within the line and the makeup itself. The collection launched this past Thursday (April 17th!) and will hit stores this upcoming Thursday April 24th !


Ok, now let's get to the good stuff ! ;)


The collection includes:

- four lipsticks : $22 (each)
-two blushes : $30 (each)
-four nail laquers : $17.50 (each)
-two lip pencils : $21 (each)
-two eye liners :  $21 (each)
-A SE 129 brush : $38.50

What really stood out to me were the lipsticks (of course lol )

Mangrove ( matte)
Pinkfringe (satin)
Primrose (lustre)
Woodrose (lustre)

My favorite has to be Woodrose, I couldn't pass it up ! :) and I'm so excited to get it !

Here's another photo of the other things in the collection.
I'm really loving the nail laquers, but I cannot justify to purchase any more nail polishes...for now. loll

I am such a sucker for cute packaging. <3


Let me know if you bought something from the collection or are looking into it...and what are your favorites??
I'll probably go check it out in person...DUH ! :)

Until next time.

Estephanie

More Issues Than Vogue

Happy Saturday everyone :) I hope everyone is having a great Easter weekend so far. 

I recently was featured on Sarah Jessica Parker's guest editor post for Nordstrom's blog "The Thread". It is so amazing and I'm so honored to have been able to among one of the women that SJP picked to feature her collection. I still can't believe it :)))

Anyways, I wanted to share additional photos from the shoot I did for this feature. They are just too amazing not to:


This is the photo that was featured on "The Thread" ....read all about it HERE !

Mid-week throw-down featuring the coveted scalloped heel.

Happy Wednesday everyone ! So excited that it's almost Friday + the long Easter weekend ahead ! Any who, I have been searching for such a long time for the perfect "gladiator" heel but I always seem to stop myself from purchasing them. Either too uncomfortable or too pricey or my size was unavailable. I felt like it wasn't meant to be, but I haven't stopped searching. :)


 I have been eyeing these scalloped Giuseppe Zanotti heels for quite some time now , but I cannot seem to justify the high price range. These come in black (shown below) and a pink rose color.


$1,195

But then ! I came across this version that look IDENTICAL to the GZ's with the exception that the heel is an inch shorter and as well as the shaft of the shoe. I felt like it was sent from the shoe gods (I know, I'm dramatic LOL ! ) :) Believe it or not, they are from Just Fab and for not even a quarter of the price of the Zanotti's. These are available in black , red, and nude ! :)

$39.95


With that MAJOR of a price difference, you could only imagine which one I chose ;)
What are your thoughts? Are the Giuseppe Zanotti's worth the investment? Or does the Just Fab version prevail?
Let me know!

xO,
Estephanie
