Beautyologie’s Second Annual Fashion Week-minster Mashup

14 Feb

It’s that time of year again…when New York City provides a snow-covered backdrop to the fashion industry’s elite for New York Fashion Week, and to the best in show for the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show…at the same time.  Between all the glitz, glamour and hairspray (and let’s not forget the pom-poms and mohawks), it’s hard to differentiate between the two. Can you?

January Is The Month To Get Shopping!

24 Jan

Now that the holiday shopping season is a thing of the past and you don’t have to worry about what to gift Aunt Sue or your 4-year-old nephew for Christmas, you can focus on shopping for the most exciting person in your life; you! Admit it, there were probably plenty of jaw-dropping fashions and accessories that you had to restrain yourself from ringing up last month, right? Thought so. (There were plenty for me.) According to the popular advice site LifeHacker.com, January is the best time of the year to spruce up your wardrobe: “[Clothing stores] are all having mad sales after the holiday rush, so now’s a great time to grab some extra clothes if you need them. The selection won’t always be great, but the prices will.”

After searching online through a bunch of popular fashion e-tailers, it’s evident that there are actually still plenty of gorgeous winter wears ripe for the picking. Coats, jeans, riding boots, cozy cardis, you name it! Here is a round up of some of my favorite post-holiday fashion finds your hard-earned cash can buy:

Sonsonate Cardigan

On sale for $79.95 from $148

This fashionable and practical staple with faux-fur panels is a great way to bundle up.

Holiday Gift Guide Courtesy of Stylist Diva

stylistdiva 2013 ultimate holiday gift guide cyber monday bree cooley

 

If I were to create my own Holiday Gift Guide, it would look just like this. But since I’ve been so preoccupied relearning fifth grade math and searching for my car keys, I can only dream of having time to “create.” Instead, I steal. But I do it in the nicest way possible. Stealing is flattery, right? I mean, copying is flattery. Anyway, the very talented fashion stylist Bree Cooley curated this spectacular work of art along with photographer Tracy Birdsell, who has an insane eye for color. I want everything in this thing, especially these sequin pants:

Looks like they’re selling quick, though, since there’s only size small left at Nastygal, Unless I’m able to regurgitate all the Halloween candy I stole from my kids over the past month, I don’t think it’s happening. I’m highly curious about this Drybar Blowout In A Box

as well as this gorgeous Mary Katranzou for Rodial Candle.

If my husband doesn’t read this post (who am I kidding), I might just be gifting myself a little somethin’ sweet for the holidays.
