In The Closet: Gypsy Warrior

Hey Everyone!

So as you may already know, one of my hobbies is scouring the internet for the best new online stores with either the greatest deals or the cutest clothes, and then sharing them with you. My fifth post on this blog was about the Korean store AtSeoul.

I don't know if you all have been noticing, but I put up new links on my sidebar with great stores for you to check out, and I really suggest you do. But this post is not about MYHABIT or Rent The Runway or  Net-A-Porter, all of which are amazing sites, but about a store I literally discovered 5 minutes ago.

The store is called "Gypsy Warrior" and it is fantastic. They have amazing jewelry, accessories, shoes, vintage finds and more, all of which is at a very decent price. Not only do they have great prices, but they offer free shipping anywhere in the U.S. plus 20% off your entire order if you type in the word "FACEBOOK" at check out. The link to the site is here:

Vanity Kills: Fall 2011/2012 Hair and Makeup Trends

Hey Everyone!

So I was browsing YouTube recently and I came across a video that perfectly showcased this seasons hair and makeup trends. The video is by Fashion TV (FTV), who went backstage during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week 2011 to discover this Fall's greatest hair and makeup looks. My favorites include:
Alberta Ferretti
Sonia Rykiel
Alberta Ferretti
Rue Du Mail

A very big makeup trend for this Fall is bright, bold lips, particularly in shades of red. To pull this off in an everyday setting, I suggest keeping the rest of your makeup simple. Keep your face natural (use foundation + concealer to do this, and very little blush on the apples of your cheeks), no eye makeup, perfectly groomed brows, and black mascara on the top lashes. You don't want to make this look too dramatic by adding eyeliner, bronzed skin or too much mascara, because the lip will be bold enough.
