New Year's Eve

It's New Year's Eve & that means a new you, right?! Then why not start off the new year standing out in the crowd. If you haven't yet bought a New Year's dress don't worry! Check out some of these celeb styles for inspiration for your own new year look.
The first two dresses were designed by Phillipe and David Blond. The dress worn by Heidi Klum is by Jenny Packham. You can go simple or outrageous with your new year's dress, but the more shiny and sparkly the better. Doesn't everyone like sparkles on New Years?

For your makeup, it is best to go simple if your dress happens to be over the top like the ladies above. If you are feeling a little outrageous a fun style to try would be this:
 Starry eyed has a whole new meaning with this makeup look. Use a smudge proof and waterproof eyeliner to complete the look. If you want to get it just perfect, use a stencil & get creative! 

Hope to see what you all decide to wear!

Pretty Little Liars "Moments Later" stills

January 3rd marks the return of ABC Family's huge summer hit, Pretty Little Liars. The stills have just been released for that first episode and you can view them below. Source

Being a huge fan of the show, not just because I read the books but also because of the amazing fashion, I can't wait to see what they have in store for the new year. Just looking at the stills, I am already in love with Lucy Hale (who plays Aria Montgomery)'s leopard print cardigan. I've added a few places you can get a similar look! 
 Similar leopard print cardigans! 
Purchase the Lily White Animal Print Cardigan (Juniors) for $36: Nordstrom
Purchase the INC Leopard print cardigan for $50: Macy's

Purchase the Aqua Cashmere Animal Print Cardigan for $60: Bloomingdale's
Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on the first episode of the new year!

Olivia Palermo in Vogue España

Olivia Palermo, famous for her stint on MTV's The City and as a staple at every fashion week has now posed for Vogue España's feature "La Niña Bonita." 

I have one major problem with this shoot and its her makeup. The dark colors for her eyeshadow make her eyes look really sunken into her head. Many people have sunken eyes but adding a dark tone draws more attention to it. If they had used a lighter eyeshadow (like she usually wears day-to-day) it would have lightened up her eyes and not have been as noticeable. I also find the last image to be a little bit frightening. What do you think?

Vogue UK December 2010

This Vogue UK spread has to be my favorite from the year. The images are absolutely beautiful and very simple. They are playful representations of the star signs.
