Noteworthy Look: Janel Parrish
On this week’s explosive Pretty Little Liars season 5 finale, Mona Vanderwaal (played by Janel Parrish) ended the episode (and her life on the show) in an outfit that masterfully mixed prints. I have frequently stated that I am a huge fan of the styling on this show, and this outfit has to be one of my all-time favorites shown thus far. Janel was dressed in a navy leopard print peplum top and pink floral jeans both from Forever 21. The PLL stylist accessorized this look with a skinny white belt and black booties. For an outfit with such variety in colors and patterns, it actually works marvelously! I’ve been trying to find pieces to recreate this outfit, but I’m stumped for now…
Noteworthy Look: Vanessa Hudgens
Vanessa Hudgens looks incredible on the cover of September’s issue of Flaunt Magazine. Her body, outfit and fresh new haircut are all spot on.
Boredom Breeds Creativity
For my 22nd birthday my friends and I got a HUGE bottle of Jack Honey, one of my favorite drinks, to celebrate. Once the bottle was finished (a month later) I bedazzled it for decoration. This blingy bottle can stand alone or can be used to store things like loose change or to hold flowers. Get creative!
Beauty Bulletin: L’Oreal Infallible Eye Shadow
I love dramatic eye makeup, so naturally I fell in love when I tried L’Oreal’s Infallible 25 Hour Eye Shadow. This product is rich with pigment so you don’t need to use a lot at once and one container will last a long time. In this photo I’m wearing the color, “Amber Rush,” which is a glittery amber that goes great with strawberry blonde hair. I finished the look with a liquid eyeliner cat eye, bold lashes and a natural lip so the focus is on my eyes. This is a great product for summer nights when you want makeup that will shimmer in the dark.
Music Notes: New + Now Playing
Lately I’ve been missing music in my life, so I decided it’s time to get back in the dance studio and back on my music blog grind. I will be continuing my weekly blog post, “Monday Music Notes,” which I used to write for Her Campus Boston University as a student- only this time it’s just “Music Notes” and they will be more frequent!
To kick off the return of my music posts, here is a playlist of what I’ve been listening to lately (as usual, tune in on Spotify to see this playlist and others!):
Meetings n’ Stuff in NYC
Planning an outfit for a summer interview may seem challenging, but with a nice sleeveless blouse and a conservative-length pencil skirt you can still look professional in hot weather. Since I’ve been interviewing for positions in fashion PR, I decided to add flare to my otherwise conservative look with heeled French Connection sandals and my mint green purse from JustFab.
