No one was as excited as I was when Charlotte Tilbury announced that her coveted makeup line was going to be available in the U.S. I have been lusting over the specific color Hepburn Honey for months now so I had to get my hands on it. I also ordered Nude Kate, since in my opinion you can never have too many nude lipsticks. The price is a bit steep at $32 a pop, but the formula is incredible. These lipsticks are creamy, rich and opaque. I highly recommend!
With the arrival of fall comes leather jackets and booties, and there's nothing I love more than an all-black ensemble paired with a pop of lip color and some gold accessories. Shop this above look at net-a-porter.com.
Even though it's still summer, I loved, loved, loved the fall makeup look Shay Mitchell rocked at the Teen Choice Awards. While the products used haven't been released, it's easy to guess, since her makeup artist Patrick Ta frequently uses Kevyn Aucoin highlighter, Giorgio Armani foundation and MAC Diva lipstick. Shay's eyeshadow is a pretty iridescent pink, which can definitely be replicated using the Naked 3 palette. Below are my picks for recreating Shay's vampy makeup look.
Let's keep our memories of JanSports in the '90s, because now backpacks can be fashionable and functional. From Givenchy to Rebecca Minkoff, these backpacks are anything but boring.
I absolutely love all of Too Faced's lip products, so when I found out about their latest lip stain/gloss product called Melted, I was so excited. I already own the Nude and Peony colors, but would love to try out a more daring color like Violet or Fig. What colors are you lusting for?
There's nothing I love more than wearing black in the winter. In contrast, wearing white in the summer is a must for me and I think any New Yorker would agree. With what seemed like a non-stop winter in NYC this year, welcoming bright white into my wardrobe is a given. These images are all inspiring for white summer outfits.

It's obvious that Kylie Jenner's been stepping up her makeup and fashion game lately, and it's about time. When she walked the red carpet at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards, I have to say I was impressed. Between the short punky hair, matte brown lip and white ensemble, Kylie's definitely not taking a back seat to her sister's anymore.
Here Kylie is wearing a soon-to-be released Alex Perry dress ($1,600) and Christian Louboutin Impera Lasercut Pumps ($1,295).
Luckily there are cheaper options.

There's something about the '90s supermodels and the editorials they turned out that are just timeless. Call me old fashioned but I don't think the models of today can hold a candle to the likes of Christy Turlington, Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and Helena Christensen.
These photos, from a Vogue Italia spread titled "The Sisters" was shot by fashion photographer Ellen von Unwerth.
I love the wardrobe of Milan-based blogger Patricia Manfield. Everything she wears is not only fashion-forward, but simple and comfortable, with a pop of the unexpected.
