No blogging today. It's a day reserved for Cupcakes, toasted pumpkin seeds and silent-screams.

 In this case, the blonde looks like she's having more fun.

Creature of the Night

our familiar, fine purveyors of brightly colored hair-dyes and cosmetics for the dark at heart, does it again. This time they are offering full palettes with cute postcard tutorials to create different 'spooky' looks.  I got "Creature of the Night" -a full look including lip liner, lipstick, eyeshadow, eyelashes and more. Perfect for the spooky weekend coming up. I am reminded of MAC's Style Black series -would've been nice if they had released something similar...but you take what you can get! You can also purchase the all-lip or eyeshadow palettes from Urbanoutfitters.com. In the spirit of the season, I've been playing around with outfits and decided to share two accessories I couldn't live without...the awesome Bride of Frankenstein necklace from CAB Fayre, and some Cabernet Sauvignon. No, I'm not a wino, but I saved the cork. This one was Chilean Castillo del Diablo. Perfect. >:)


Mulberry for Target

Already sold-out online but still available at select stores...I don't know...I'm really leaning towards these for some reason. They remind me of a chic cross between a Betsey Johnson bag and a Hermes Birkin. There's something simple and elegant about them where the satchels look roomy enough for any occasion, yet super sophisticated for evening attire. I love the pink leopard too -edgy enough to turn something ordinary into a little bit hip. Yep, I'd welcome a Mulberry into my life.


Far East, Far Out

Marc Jacobs at Louis Vuitton channels the Far East... Shanghai girls, Cheongsam-style, -totally love it! The jewel-tones bring out the glamour, sophistication and elegance that makes Asian-splendor so compelling, in my opinion. It reminds me of my mom, photos of her decked out in lovely Chinese gowns, a twenty-something ready to embark on a new life, bound for the States...I love the mesh, lace, satin and sheer textures, adding a delicacy that keeps things from bordering on gaudy.
