What to Wear for the Holidays - The Thanksgiving Edition

Hello Angels!!

I know it is always a challenge to figure out what to wear around the holidays.  You want to look fabulous since you will most likely be reuniting with friends and family, but want to achieve this without breaking the bank!  All of the above applies for me, plus I was on the lookout for something comfortable, with some give, so that I don't feel self conscious about what I will be eating all day.  Sequined track pants to the rescue!  They are a fun way to add some sparkle, while remaining very comfortable, and that is my main goal.  I was inspired by some luxe options by J. Crew and Anthropologie, but I opted to find the look for less so I could spread the love for my holiday gift list.  

Here is my look for Thanksgiving tomorrow, keep scrolling down for the play by play, and where to find everything.  Happy shopping and a very Happy Thanksgiving to our US readers!  Stay tuned for more looks throughout the holiday season!

The complete look

The clothes

The main piece, sequined track pants by Wayf ($68 at Nordstrom)

My top is a simple black tee with embellished shoulders from Express, which is now on sale for $14.95!  Since my pants are very flashy, I wanted to tone everything else down.

I will be wearing black suede Zipfel pumps from Aldo $70

And of course, since it's going to be cold, I needed a jacket, also from Express. This is a quilted baseball jacket on sale for $39.95

I decided to go with a faux leather envelope clutch from Nordstrom $35

And last but not least, my splurge for this outfit is a black and gold lucite bracelet by Alexis Bittar, also from Nordstrom $99

For my inspiration, I spotted these pants at Anthropologie for $348 and these J. Crew Harem Sequined pants for $650. I was able to achieve the entire look for around $325, and I already owned most of the pieces!  

Anthropologie sequined taper pants $348

J. Crew Harem Sequined pants $650 (yes, that's right six-hundred-fifty-dollars)

Wishing you a Happy and Stylish Holiday!

Jennifer Hudson's American Music Awards makeup

Hi Angels,

In an effort to keep current with makeup trends you have to keep up with the stars.  One of the stars I like to watch is Jennifer Hudson.  Jennifer's skin is flawless and is always complimented by gorgeous makeup.  This has not changed despite weight loss and different hair styles.

By the way I love the cut girlfriend.  WERK!

Now back to the makeup.  Jennifer's makeup compliments the dress without overpowering it.  The face focuses on the eye with a pop of color.  

Here's the products I would use to duplicate the look

Face: MUFE HD 175 
MUFE #4 highlight and contour kit.
MAC:Hidden Treasure limited edition( reviewed on this blog) a pinky orange blush
Lashes: Ardel wispies 
Eyes:MAC Magnetic Attraction Eyeshadow or Stila Countless Color Pigments in finale. (Both reviewed by us)
Topped off by Stila waterproof liquid eyeliner in cobalt. (This too!)
Finish the eye with the very black MAC eyeliner in feline 
Lips: MAC Just wonderful pencil with MAC Angel lipstick and lipglass

I love the look.  Her face is always well done and never complicated.  Let us know if you want to see the look on or even a tutorial.  Send us a pic if you created the look for yourself.

Until next time Angels

Viva Glam Rihanna

Hi Angels,

On the heels of her sold out lines, MAC has announced Rihanna as the new face of Viva Glam.  This joint release is set to debut in January of 2014.  

I have seen some say they are sick of the Rihanna collabos.  But hey if it makes dollars, it makes cents.  RiRi's lines have sold out each time they were released.  So why not make money to support MAC's HIV/AIDS charity.  Even if you don't like RIRI it's for a good cause.

Here is the promo pic:

The word on the streets is that is a matte red lippy with glitter. Think MAC Rocker. Viva Glam always has a matching gloss as well.  Take in the special packaging and color.  Fancy!  

I will definitely check it out when it is released.  Let us know if you are interested and what you think if you pick it up.  

Until next time Angels

Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette

Hi Angels,

Psssssst, come in close.  I have some news for you.  One of our favorite brands, Urban Decay is coming out with a new palette.  It is Naked 3.  That is all the info you will find on Urban Decay.  This is on their website:

Luckily I am up at the wee hours of the morning and able to some snooping.  Looks like Sephora in France made a faux pas and released the palette early.  So some French bloggers have the palette already.  Gasp and sad face.

Here is a pic I was able to find:


They got on the good foot and made a warm palette with rosy tones.  Looks even warmer than my LORAC Unzipped palette which I love.  And since I don't have Naked 2, Naked 3 will be mine.  It will be available at the end of the month on Urban Decay's website.  Sephora, Ulta and Macy's should get in time for the Holidays.

Are you getting this palette?  Let us know if you will and when you do.  

Until next time Angels
