Fall Fashion Inspiration: T by Alexander Wang

This summer has been oddly cool. I live in the Midwest, and it hasn’t reached 70° on several occasions. Cool weather has me dreaming of a new fall wardrobe. I cannot wait to wear jackets and boots. For this season, I’m loving the sporty and neoprene trends. T by Alexander Wang’s FW 2014 line would be the perfect addition to my closet. It’s sporty yet chic, and encompasses all the big trends without being too overwhelming. Reversible neoprene jackets are what caught my eye in this fall line. The neoprene outer shell is a vibrant color, and the reverse side is a nice dark grey fleece. I’m also loving the sporty leather leggings and quilted joggers. Rotating my closet soon and making way for fall fashion.

Pop-In@Nordstrom x Rag & Bone

The Rag & Bone Pop-In shop is now available at Nordstrom. The collection features a wide array of items for men and women, ranging from $8-$1595. This Nordstrom exclusive collection is available only for a limited time. I quite like the suede and leather dress. It’s perfect for fall, and I love the color. Clothing, shoes, and various knickknacks were designed exclusively for this collection. You can shop the collection curated by Nordstrom’s own, Olivia Kim, online here: http://bit.ly/1sBdDmZ or at a few select Nordstrom stores. Seeing is how I cannot afford that amazing dress, I might have to settle for a shirt and the bottle opener.

From now until September 3rd, you can send in your old jeans to Rebecca Minkoff and get 25% off a new pair of RM denim. Pretty sweet right? They will take your old pair and donate them to Blue Jeans Go Green. If you live in LA, you can stop by the local RM store and trade them in. Upgrade your wardrobe for fall and support a good cause!

Garnier Gets Colorful

I have only dyed my hair once, and it was only the tips. I had to bleach the ends and dyed them pink for breast cancer. The bleach killed my hair, and the color faded incredibly fast. I’ve never dyed my hair another shade because I could never get my natural color back from a bottle. My natural hair color isn’t black, despite what you might see. It’s dark brown that sometimes turns reddish with faint blonde streaks in the sun. Of course, I’ve tinted my hair with purple, pink, and blue with Manic Panic dyes. But it’s only temporary, the hues only show up faintly in the light on my dark hair.

Garnier just released a new hair color product. For those of you interested in dying your hair bright colors without the long term commitment, this is for you. Garnier Color Styler comes in five shades and can be used on all hair types and colors. The color is clay based and can be applied in six easy steps. Plus, it doesn’t damage your hair. You apply the color to dry hair, and there is no rinsing involved. I’ve never gotten bright colors to pop on my dark hair, but I will definitely be trying this out in several colors. The color runs about $7, and can be found online on their site or at your local drugstore or Target. I will try this out in the next week or so, and post again with the results. I’m so excited for this product from Garnier!
