DIY: Graduation Cap

My graduation cap is complete! So excited with how it turned out. Yes, it's extremely sparkly and a bit obnoxious, but that's just how I like it;) I have the good 'ole Lone Star State on there to represent where I come from/where my home will always be, then there's "NYC" to represent where I will move after graduation to start living my dream, and I couldn't forget those red, glittery lips to represent my and my sis's future brand. Just wanted to share it with y'all!

Trend Alert: Ombre Lips

Ok so yes, we have an obsession with a great, bold lip. Hence why we are currently LOVING this new trend. Not only does mixing and blending two colors add some spice to your look, it creates the illusion of a fuller lip as well. And who doesn't want a more luscious pout?? 

There are multiple ways to create this look. You can either start by adding the lighter shade to your inner lip, then apply the darker shade to the outer rim and blend accordingly. Or you can go for the dramatic, dark upper lip that gradually blends to the lighter shade on the bottom half. 

As far as colors go, stick with similar shades for a more simple effect. But if you really want to turn some heads, go for bold, contrasting colors like a plum and coral. The ombre lip is the "it" trend for Summer, and we can't wait to try it out! Who's with us??

Mr. Brad Goreski

Yes, ladies and gentlemen I had the privilege of meeting Brad Goreski yesterday. The fabulous, fashion stylist arrived in Dallas to have a book signing at Brooks Brothers in the West Village area in downtown Dallas. The setting was immaculate yet casual as could be with his signature bow ties accenting the place. They even handed out decorated bow tie amaze! Meeting one of your idols is always a shock, and meeting Brad Goreski was certainly one of the most surreal moments of my life. We loved him before, and now even more so (if that's even possible) with his friendly, and amazingly fab, personality in person. If you have yet to pick up a copy of his book, "Born to Be Brad", do so ASAP and have fun reading about fashion, life and everything chic. WE LOVE YOU BRAD!

Gettin' Leggy!

It's that time of year ladies...time to bust out the shorts! But who says you have to wear any old pair of shorts when the temps start to rise? Whether they are high-waisted, lace, belted, loose-fitted, metallic or structured, shorts come in all kinds of different styles, textures and colors. With the plethora of options you can choose from, your Spring/Summer wardrobe will be anything but boring. You can rock your favorite pair with strappy sandals, cute flats or even some fun wedges to make your legs look extra long. And just remember, if you're going to wear shorts with a bold print or some that have a lot of detailing, try to keep your top half clean and simple. You don't want to distract from those killer gams, right?;)

2012 Florida Letterman Awards

Hey everyone!
So I wanted to share some pics I have from the 3rd Annual Florida Letterman Awards that was this past Monday night. The FLAs is an award show the University of Florida puts on to recognize and reward all of the accomplishments of the student-athletes from the past athletic season. I am part of the gymnastics team at UF, and I was chosen to be the Director of Planning for this year's event. It was such an honor! Unfortunately, I didn't get a ton of pics since I was running around like a mad women making sure everything was good to go before the show! But here are a few I managed to snap/jump into. I was SO excited to get to wear this little Bebe number...such a fun dress!

With our amazing host for the night, Steve Mesler! (3-time Olympian and Gold Medalist in the 4-man bobsled)

Red Carpet!

Craving Some Cuffs

Rachel Zoe Gladys Flat Sandal $235

Stuart Weitzman Cuffed Gladiator Sandal $96

Vince Camuto Arthur Leather Ankle Sandal $98

Cheap Monday Saviour Sianii Sandal $75

We are currently obsessed with the ankle strap sandal. We think it all stemmed from when we first landed eyes on those Rachel Zoe Gladys flats...wowza. They're simple in design, yet the ankle strap and gold latch makes them so chic. Yes, the Zoe's are a little bit on the pricier side, but there are so many options out there since this is a hot trend for the upcoming months. It's the perfect sandal to add some uniqueness to your easy-going summer outfits. Who else is having some serious cravings for some cuffs??
