Fashionista- Pumps

I have recently purchased my share of pumps from various places and I need to break them in! Not so much the special shoes but the pumps I planned on wearing to work. Now I have been fine with breaking them in the good old fashion way but I wonder if there is an alternate or shorter less painful way to conquer this task. Any suggestions?

Fashionista- The LBD

A question was posed on Facebook about the Little Black Dress. This is a classic piece that is your go to for any cocktail party, date or just wanting to WOW the crowd.

The questions was,"Should the LBD be accesorized with color ei: red shoes, red belt and red jewels. Is this Haute or Not."

Fashionista says: NOT! I am in fatuation with metal accents all the way. If you were to wear a red shoe, fine, but please have mercy on the remaining items.

While I am on a rant, ladies please stop matching your eyeshadow with your outfit! It is better to go with the complimentary color. See the chart below for a clue:

It is alright to wear a yellow dress and compliment your outfit with purple/fucia shadow. Matching from head to toe is always to much on the retina.

Now thats better! The LBD is a must have to your closet but it is to be accentuated not hidden under an overabundance of colors. After all, while I LOVE the 80s, I dont want to go back there!

New Loves!

I began a summer relationship with a couple of things. Jewelry, Hair Products and Nail Polish! You know what they say about addictions, you never really give something up, you just replace it with something else. So while my makeup took a back seat, my love for the pretty and flashy took over.

My drawers are beginning to fill with pretty and colorful nail polish thanks to @zoya_nailpolish and my beauty partner in crime @perfecttenn. As you can tell I am on twitter and this is the perfect place to indulge with like-minded individuals who encourage (and enable) the addiction.

I was a little hesitant but I got a little advise! Now I can not wait to try out Zoya Nail Polish Matte Velvet in Black:

From @bargainprincess:

@msned12 Don't be afraid, that'll be perfect this winter! I love wearing dark nail polishes with BOLD statement rings ;)

Hmmmm! Great idea! Jewlery meets nail polish! Please stop my heart from beating! I MUST make a move quickly. Be sure to stay tuned for more of my new addict moments!
