The Stylish Standout
Handbags have always been a weakness of mine. My handbag collection practically needs a closet of its own. I love for my accessories to make a statement – they’re the equivalency of a supporting actress stealing the spotlight! That is why I am enamored with the handbags at Jules Kae. Their handbags make a statement with a variety of color palettes and designs that always match up to the latest trends for each season. This light beige Jules Kae Vegan Leather Tote will work for any season. Not only it serves well as a handbag, but it can be used as a chic traveling tote to house all of your travel essentials! It’s that roomy. Want to go hands-free? No problem. It has a long strap that can be worn over your shoulder or cross-body.
Ready, Set, Glow!
Caudalie’s Vinoperfect Radiance Serum can single-handedly “up-the-ante” with any skin routine. This brightening serum is a cult favorite and has been proven to be 62 times more effective than vitamin C! It creates a flawless “canvas” that is akin to the works of a Sandro Botticelli painting. Featuring skin boosting ingredients, this silicone-free serum is lightweight. It immediately absorbs into the skin so it can get to work correcting dark spots, including acne scars, pigmentation, melasma, and sunspots. Rachel Zoe recommends patting it on the skin after cleansing and before moisturizing to help boost radiance.
The Elegant Extra
Ettika’s Chloe Tassel Necklace was also included in the Box of Style for Fall 2018 that I received last season, so I was pleasantly surprised and delighted that it was in the Select Edition as well. While I wear necklaces that often since I’m not much of a necklace person, I wear this necklace every chance I get! Not only it’s beautiful, but it is so versatile. This delicately-layered 18K gold-plated necklace is adorned with crystal accents, which adds a touch of glam and sophistication without going over-the-top. Having a night out in town? It is your best companion for a plunging neckline. Want to add a dash of sparkle with your favorite chunky sweater? Wear this necklace on the loosest setting.
The Fine Line
The cat-eye look has been my signature look for years before it came purring back with a vengeance! I sincerely trust that it’s a look that will never genuinely go out of style. It originated in the Ancient Egypt culture and became an iconic look in the 50s. It was the go-to look from the girl next door to classic stars and legends like Nina Simone, Audrey Hepburn, Françoise Hardy, Jean Shrimpton, and Sophia Loren. Even Don Draper’s wife, Megan, on Mad Men, had embellished her 60s regalia with the iconic look that was reminiscent of the aforementioned stars of the heyday. Furthermore, we should not disregard Dita von Teese and the late Amy Winehouse! One can easily see why women love this look – it is sensational yet mysterious and elegant.
I’ve tried so many liquid eyeliners from different brands over the years, but the Tarte Cosmetics Sex Kitten Liquid Eyeliner is truly one of the best! I had been using Estée Lauder’s Little Black Liner ($32) since last summer, but this liquid eyeliner gives me a long-lasting wing without smudging for $12 less. It’s perfect for creating a dramatic, timeless look!
The Wear With All
A watch is a functional piece of art that is a reflection of the wearer’s sense of style. Eddie Borgo’s Soho Watch has a simple yet luxe style that’s versatile enough to go with any outfit. To go for the wow-factor, Rachel Zoe suggests mixing this rose gold watch with gold and silver jewelry.
