Olivia Palermo inspired makeup - smoky eyes, defined cheeks and baby pink lips (and bobby pins in my hair)"I want it all" from High School Musical 3 as my new power anthem! "Paris! London! Tokyo! Bollywood!"Chunky blonde & honey highlights, boho bedhead hair .... tres Nicole Richie (yes she's still hott!)
And now for general lemmings ......
Ahh my wardrobe is in need of a lot of boring basic items, and being unemployed (ugh!) means getting really creative and thinking about cost per wear before buying. If I don't absolutely adore it and know I won't get that much wear out of it then its not a wise purchase. I'm going to die this winter unless I purchase some woolies, and my annoying yo-yo weight means I never have jeans that fit! And now that I have a new boy ... some slinky lingerie hee hee! :) I'm going American Apparel crazy at the mo, after my best friend so graciously gave me a cotton blend deep V-neck tee! The fit, the cut, the feel - I'm converted! It's the only tee that actually makes me look like I have boobies .. with assistance from Wonderbra. Yippee! And importing to SA is not too expensive so stocking up on more of those delicious little tees, tres versatile jersey dresses... high-waisted Night Fever black lame disco pants (granted, not a basic, but I had to have them .. for their um, Kylie Minogue novelty?!) ... some days I'm dressed down and minimalist and on others I like to be a bit of a queen, no? I will admit its been waaaaaay too long since I went the high maintenance route with the nails and the makeup etc. etc. but I think the main thing about being stylish is to just always be yourself ...... so I am as the mood takes me!!
p.s ... long post to come of Winter must-haves
p.s I really really want to ride in a swanboat.

For night, big ol’ bondage heels paired with stretchy black pants or leggings and an oversize cashmere sweater hits the mark between dressy and casual and is sexy in an I-just-threw-this-on kind of way. If you want to wear them with a dress but aren't entirely comfortable, a pair of opaque black stockings will take some edge off. From there, it should only be a matter of time before you are Gwyneth Paltrow, trotting through life in six-inch buckled-on Rodarte platform heels.
