The Other Woman


The other night, I was invited to see a cute and quirky girl’s night out comedy, The Other WomanSo, I grabbed my best gal pal, Chris, and we hit The Crosby Hotel. 

The film chronicles the unlikely but meaningful friendship between three women, juxtaposed against comedy, love, and shared experience. Not to mention, the costume design is by the iconic Patricia Field. Each character has a definite style vibe: Carly (Cameron Diaz) is urban polished with an edge, Kate (Leslie Mann) is sweet and structured, while Amber (Kate Upton) shines in post-collegiate boho-glam. Patricia Field nailed it. Her unfettered eye resonates and captures a character. From prim and proper dresses, to dripping femme fatales, her craft for a narrative is unparalleled. After the film, Patricia said in the Q&A, "It’s not about selling clothes…it’s about story telling." Her words couldn’t be more perfect — the costumed design and the styling is what captures the essence of a film’s story. The characters are grounded in focus and personality, and yet, the clothes are something we the viewers don’t always notice, because the pairing is so perfect, it’s believable to these characters. 

I love a punchy feel-good film and this girl’s night out certainly delivered. Most importantly, it got me thinking. About clothes. How dressing defines us and yet also explores many facets to our personalities. One mood, another dress. A new feeling, a great top or the perfect heels. I love the complexity of style and how it continually evolves and changes as we do through life. Patricia’s work in The Other Woman reminded me of that and made me thankful for my great friends that I share these memories (and clothes!).

Makeup Forever High Definition Blush #26 Swatch



Babes, Makeup Forever’s High Definition Blush is super smooth and tres jolie. I love that it’s not in the least bit sticky, airy [almost like a mousse texture], and gives a warm pink sheen without the look of spontaneously combusting into Malibu Barbie. 

* Note: I did put a generous layer of tinted moisturizer on my hand and a liberal dose of the blush on my hand for a swatch. The actual results on my face are more subdued. Of course, the more you layer, the thicker the product and the hue deepens. 

Photo Diary // Three Things

With the weather slowly coming around, I’m starting to venture outdoors again. What a bitter winter. I’m so happy to see it go.

1. Tried a new coffee shop in my ‘hood. Konditori is a new favorite.
2. Twirling around in a star print dress. Instead of looking windswept, I looked windblown.
3. Abraham Lincoln street art to the max. 

Inspiration // Rose Gold Hair

I’m crushing hard for rose gold hair. A little dreamy. A little punky. I need to bask in its glory, no doubt.
