30 Days x 30 Articles of Clothing Fashion Styling Challenge

I have seen several fashion challenges on other style blogs specifically this one and I think it is time to do one over here. I would love for you to do this with me too!

To be a fashion stylist, you need to be able to dress body types and make due with what you have; whether it be your own closet, the wardrobe closet on a set, or the store you are working in. This challenge is designed to show off your skills in the art of dressing yourself.

If you want to participate, please email me a collage style photo of the 30 pieces you will be working with, the links you would like to be associated with, and a profile pic of your personal style by June 30th.

I will be posting albums on Facebook for every fashion stylist and fashion lover who would like to participate and linking back to your personal sites. The challenge will start July 1st through the 30th.

Here is the basic outline of the fashion challenge.

1. Pick 30 articles of clothing. (Shoes, accessories, and handbags don’t count.)
2. Make 30 variations of outfits with these 30 pieces.
3. Take a photo of each of these outfits.
4. Send the photos to me every Thursday for four Thursdays starting July 5th.
It’s super simple, very fun, and it’ll showcase to others your fashion styling skills!

The goal for myself is to practice my styling and remind myself how to dress my own body. I would also like to gain a working closet that is fully utilized and organized through this challenge.

Remember to shoot me an email by June 30th to enter the challenge with me. I’m looking forward to some fashion styling and hope to hear from you soon!

Nicole Perrella decided to join in on this fashion challenge here are her 30 clothing pieces. You can keep up with her here, here , and here.

All you Stylists, join us!!!

Anthony Vaccarello: Forcible Feminine

  Anthony Vaccarello’s line is inspired by the force of the feminine; brazenly embodied strength and sensuality that evokes the classic Amazonian icons of photographer Herb Ritts’ work of the nineties. Black is brought back into context alongside navy blue, a contrast that permits nuances of luminosity and envisions Vaccarello’s heroin beneath the moon, enveloped in the gentle shades and light of a torrid night. A collection whose negotiation between diagrammatic and sensual achieves a true vision of urban style.

Lash Allure MD After 8 Weeks Product Review

As you all know, I have been using the Beauty Bioscience products. After only two weeks while using the Lash Allure MD, I had little new eyelash sprouts! Never had I seen a growing lash but I had three right then.

At the two week point, I had some growth in the brows but not a ton. After the 8 weeks…. Holy Brow! I am really happy with the outcome. A stranger on Instagram (@mrscschults) said You have the best eye brows!” This is not a joke.

I will give all credit to Lash Allure MD. The twice a day treatment really works. For me, the night time application worked best because it is clear and I can wear it without feeling like I have makeup on.

I do think this is an application you will have to keep up on. I am pretty sure that if I stop completely using Lash Allure on my brows, I will go back to looking over plucked and my eyelash growth will go back to normal.

The overall on Beauty BioScience is that I trust their products. The products I have tried worked when I followed the instructions and I am very happy with the results.

Christian Louboutin, The Red Sole

Books With Style

Christian Louboutin is one of the most popular shoe designers in the world right now instantly recognizable by the signature red sole. Average cost is $500-$900. The brand is loved by celebrities and wealthy fashionistas everywhere.

Fascinated by world cultures, Louboutin ran away in his teens to Egypt and spent a year in India. Louboutin returned to Paris in 1981, where he assembled a portfolio of drawings of elaborate high heels. He brought it to the top couture houses. The effort resulted in employment with Charles Jourdan. Subsequently, Louboutin met Roger Vivier, who claims to have invented the stiletto, or spiked-heel shoe. He opened a Paris shoe salon in 1991.

Louboutin helped bring stilettos back into fashion in the 1990s and 2000s, designing dozens of styles with heel heights of 120mm (4.72 inches) and higher. The designer’s professed goal has been “to make a woman look sexy, beautiful, to make her legs look as long as [he] can.” While he does offer some lower-heeled styles, Louboutin is generally associated with his dressier evening-wear designs incorporating jeweled straps, bows, feathers, patent leather, and other similar decorative touches.
