Fashion Friday Featuring Affirmats

Today’s Fashion Friday is featuring Affirmats. A wonderful company that specializes in eco friendly biodegradable jute yoga mats. Now one might think how could a yoga mat be featured in a fashion post? Well admittedly I would probably think the same thing if I hadn’t seen the beauty that is Affirmats. These mats are not only functional (non slip, nothing worse than a mat that makes you feel like Bambi on ice) but they are beautiful and in turn make oneself feel beautiful. Its hard enough to get the urge to workout but having a mat “tell” you “Look how pretty you are” “I am wonderfully made” or “I am healthy I am wealthy I am love” is just the encouragement you need when trying to tackle “that impossible” pose you’re dying to accomplish. I have never loved a mat so much and I encourage you to check out this rad company http://www.affirmats.com/Home.html

Fashion Friday Featuring Bomber Betty

So last Friday my package from Bomber Betty arrived, I got a lipstick in the color Burlesque-esque and a bronzer in the color goddess, I could not be more thrilled, they are absolutely perfect.

IMG_6964IMG_6951Seriously can we all take a moment to appreciate how perfect the packaging is? Bomber Betty was created by Jessica Sawicki a Chicago based makeup artist, all of the cosmetics are hand made with the absolute best mineral ingredients available, are natural, paraben-free, and cruelty free, as well as hand packaged! Now being that Jessica is makeup artist you can rest assured this makeup applies beautifully and lasts well into the day. I mean who better than a makeup artist to create a line of makeup?

Clear Umbrella: Target http://www.target.com/p/totes-clear-bubble-umbrella-silver-trim/-/A-10780081#prodSlot=medium_1_6&term=clear+umbrella I love this umbrella!

Bandana: Cavenders.

Bronzer: Bomber Betty¬†http://www.shop.bomberbetty.com/Mineral-Blush-Goddess-2006.htm¬†I have been on the hunt for the perfect bronzer and I have found it in Bomber Betty’s “Goddess”. This bronzer goes on evenly and looks ever so natural, most bronzers you have to be so crazy careful to use a very light hand or you’ll end up looking like someone from the cast of Jersey Shore. But this bronzer goes on lightly resulting in a perfect sunkissed glow!

Lipstick: Bomber Betty¬†http://www.shop.bomberbetty.com/Lipstick-Burlesque-Esque-7035.htm¬†I love this lipstick! It goes on smoothly but doesn’t feel like its going to slip and slide like so many other lipsticks can, that gets ugly fast, let me tell ya. Burlesque-esque is a beautiful bright red with blue undertones which makes your teeth look nice and white, plus its matte which I adore! This lipstick should be a staple for every woman if you ask me.

Polka Dot blouse: Charlotte Russe. Now this is the problem I am always faced with, I shop “out of season” so I can never find the link to what I am actually wearing but here is a top at forever 21 which is similar¬†http://www.forever21.com/Product/Product.aspx?Br=F21&Category=top&ProductID=2027357073&VariantID=

Fashion Friday Featuring Dream Hats

I had a whole shoot planned with a good location…however the weather made that impossible, seriously weather you couldn’t have waited til night to start pouring down rain? Anyway this week’s Fashion Friday is featuring my gorgeous fascinator from¬†http://www.dreamhats.com/¬†I love all things glamorous and vintage and boy does Dream Hats deliver! Never have I seen such a beautiful fascinator, I squealed with delight when I first saw it! Not only does Dream Hats carry pinup style and Renaissances pieces but they will also do custom orders for special occasions like weddings, how great is that? Also if you live in the Dallas region or are planning a visit to our fair city you can find Dream Hat pieces at http://www.dallaspinup.com/

Dress: I bought this from Charlotte Russe a year or so ago but they have one similar http://www.charlotterusse.com/product/entity/240335.uts

Shoes: Sorry didn’t get a pick but they’re just plain black ballet flats from Payless not dissimilar to these¬†http://www.payless.com/store/product/detail.jsp?catId=cat10088&subCatId=cat10276&skuId=094284050&productId=69922&lotId=094284&category=&catdisplayName=Womens

Have a fabulous weekend!

Fashion Friday Featuring Onzie

So in my most recent post I had said how yoga clothes are not worth sharing on Fashion Friday…Well the problem wasn’t the fact that they were yoga clothes, the problem was that they weren’t Onzie yoga attire. Seriously I have never seen such pretty activewear before. All of Onzie’s production, that means from knitting to photography, takes place in their Los Angeles facilities. It’s nice to know that there still are 100% USA made companies out there. Onzie was created by 20 year bikram yogi so you can be certain these clothes are just as functional as they are beautiful. You can find out more about this awesome company here¬†http://www.theonzie.com/

Everything I am wearing is from Onzie but I will post the links to what particular products I am wearing.

Scoop back tank:¬†http://www.theonzie.com/scoop-back-tank/¬†I honestly love this top so much I’ll probably wear it round town cause I absolutely adore the back detail.

Criss cross bra:¬†http://www.theonzie.com/criss-cross-bra-top/¬†just a little side note this is the most comfortable sports bra I’ve ever worn! Its supportive but it doesn’t dig into your shoulders like so many sports bras do! So I would definitely encourage anyone on the hunt for the “perfect” sports bra to get this one.

Sport Short:¬†http://www.theonzie.com/sport-short/¬†I got the floral print cause it’s so perfectly girly! These are also super comfortable.

Have a happy Friday everyone.
