Make Mine Spicy!

Halloween is the perfect time to  embrace a deep pumpkin nail shade.

What's better than a warm,glowing spicy shade adorning your digits!

I spied this on a shelf and fell in love with the deep reddish brown with hints of glitter.

Unlike most of the sparkly shades out there, this one goes on sheer, and is best used layered over a good coat of rust or coral to make it stand out.

I layered Sally Hansen Pumpkin Spice Xtreme Wear here, over Essie "Very Structured" to get a beautiful Fall glow.

Simply "Fang-tastic"

Until next time~

Simply "Scent-Sational"

Waiting in line
Last week, I had the pleasure of meeting the legendary Diane von Furstenberg at the Nordstrom, Bellevue store.

I can't tell you how thrilled I was. This is one of the women who have helped to shape the world of fashion as we know it. 

Perched on top of a black lacquer desk, this 64 year old powerhouse spoke briefly with everyone who waited patiently in line, and signed autographs, as well as bottles of her new perfume DIANE, a lovely mixture of frangipani and soft violet. 

 (Shown here, Eau de Toilette, $90)

 Best known for her knitted jersey wrap dress back in 1973, Ms. Furstenberg created an empire with signature prints for ready-to-wear, along with footwear, handbags, and even a limited edition T-Mobile Sidekick. 

 One of her other fragrance launches was Tatiana (named after her daughter)

Everything about her style is based on empowering women to go out there and be whoever they want to be, independent, fierce, and ready to embrace whatever comes their way. 

Go get 'em, Tiger!

Until next time~
