All Access: Backstage at Rebecca Minkoff A/W ’14

Rebecca Minkoff Fall 2014 beauty

Now that I moved to Massachusetts for school, New York City is only a (relatively) inexpensive and short bus ride away. So of course, I couldn’t let myself miss out on covering all the Fall 2014 beauty trends at New York Fashion Week. I had such a blast last year and was so excited to have the opportunity to be invited back.

My first day in the city I woke up, bought myself a classic NYC bagel and waited for my first show: Rebecca Minkoff. Get ready for undone chic with a hint of classic this Autumn.

Nails of the Week: Deborah Lippmann Today was a Fairytale and Orly Mirror Mirror

Deborah Lippmann Today was a Fairytale

It was snowing here today. That makes it about three times that I’ve seen falling snow. Like a little kid, I couldn’t help myself from going outside and frolicking in the snow. It was so pristine and beautiful, though the icy ground made it a little hard to frolic.

When I was at the nail salon the shade immediately jumped out at me, almost like it was calling me.  “Pick me… Pick me!”  I even tried to talk myself into other shades but ultimately absolutely couldn't resist Essie Bottle Service for my tips and toes.

Nails of the Week: Essie Limited Addiction

Happy Lunar New Year everyone!  To ring in the year of the Snake, I chose a traditional red and gold for my holiday manicure.

Essie Limited Addiction was the base for my French mani-inspired nails.  It's a rich creme red that rings true to the color with a tinge of orange undertones.  It reminds me of those beautiful Shanghai women and their siren red lips from the 1940s era.
