Friday, January 11, 2013 California Dreaming: Here Comes The Sun


It may have been a bit too cold and rainy in L.A. these past few days but we’re actively pursuing the light, even if it’s just with our wardrobe. Here are a few of our staff’s top picks to brighten up the winter blues.

Martine, Web Designer: ”The perfect dress for pretending it’s the summer of love, even when it’s raining.”


Sabrina, Planning Analyst: ”My boyfriend shopped my Nasty Gal wantlist for the holidays and luckily I ended up with this rockin’ denim jacket. I love love love it, and wear it with everything!”


Jacqueline, Jr. Buyer: ”It’s so hard to find a good print in shoes and this boot hits the mark with the watercolor floral and shattered crystal vibes! It’s begging to be worn with an all-white ensemble.”


Lisa, Jr. Buyer: “I need this baby to brighten up the winter wardrobe while still keeping warm. It’s not overly heavy looking, and has a spring forward palette!”


Kaitlyn, Sr. PR Manager:Jeans with a pattern and a fade, like a good men’s hair cut.”


Meredith, Merchandise Planner: “I plan on wearing this little number on my trip to Palm Springs over Valentine’s Day weekend!”

Thursday, January 10, 2013 Bringin’ It Back: The End Of The Rainbow


Our latest vintage stash brings the bold with a kaleidoscope of high-voltage hues spanning a few of our favorite eras. Inspired by everything from 60s mod, when Twiggy was THE face and Courrèges saw the future with out-of-sight metal minis, to the 90s when Cindy Crawford was kickin’ it with the Fresh Prince and Versace reigned supreme, there’s no doubt this collection brought out our true colors. So go ahead…blaze the rainbow!

Thursday, January 10, 2013 Lessons From The Pros: Just Brows-ing

Believe it or not, eyebrows are as trendy as that latest it-bag that you’re slinging around. They’re the one feature on the face that dramatically changes from one season to the next. And right now, a strong, sexy brow is a must, so quit waxing up a storm and embrace your inner Frida because crazy brows are sexy as hell. Even if you were born with dainty little brows, or you killed them in junior high, there are ways to make them fuller and deeper.
Personally, I absolutely love fair-haired girls with dark, contrasting brows–ugggh, gorgeous!–but that’s a personal call. And dark-haired gals with brows to match is a look that slays left and right. If you’re going to do the dark, full brow look, match the roots of your hair to your brows–and that goes for blondes with deeper roots too! You cannot go wrong.Here are four VERY simple ways to sex up the brow, and they are easy steps! So no excuse for intimidation!

1. Spike up brows with a spiral brush to see where you need to feel in with soft color. Also, by brushing hairs straight up you’ll be able to see your unique brow shape, and how and where you need to elongate or over-exaggerate  a touch. I like to do this first step with a spiral shape brush because it grabs every fine hair for severe spiking. You can use those disposable  mascara wands or purchase one that’ll last a while–my favorite is Tweezerman Spiral Brush in a retractable case.
2. Once brow hairs are spiked, go in with a neutral color such as taupe, or a sheer, deep color and start filling in any little blank spots in upward, short, hair-like strokes. Use a brow powder or pencil. I like both, a powder is softer but a pencil has a little wax in it so the look stays on longer. My favorite is Sumita Brow Pencil. This pencil corrects and fills in spareness with its unique oval tip, and the  subtle strokes of color will not budge. Start along the brow line and then gently shape your arch and extend outward, elongating your brow just a tad. Long brows are very elegant, thick or thin.

3. Use a brow brush and brush through the filled in brow a few times. This breaks the product down, blending it into the hairs and skin. If you skip this process, your brows will look like they have been tattooed on your face. Not really what you’re going for! Sumita has a rad Multi-Task Brush that has a bristle, comb and precise brush tip for powder. A totally good investment.
4. Lastly set those babies for the entire day or night with a product that currently excites me like no other: brow wax. Brow Set from Sumita grooms and keeps brows in their place for hours. It also helps shape. I sometimes use the wax pencil alone, on bare brows, when I’m on the run. This wax spikes, smooth, shapes and sets without interrupting color. Think of it as the perfect pomade that never flakes or leaves residue.

Yay full brows! I dare you to wear the fullest brow you can with nothing else but a bold lip. GULP! Dangerous.
