Andrea's Fashion Favorites - 2013 MTV VMA'S (Red-Carpet & After Party)

Last night in Brooklyn tons of celebs came out for MTV's annual VMA (Video Music Awards). I personally didn't like alot of looks, it seems like everyone was experimenting with different designers and I glanced at Rita Ora for a second thinking it was Beyoncé. But there were a couple of girls who looked beyond gorgeous and below are my favorite picks of the night, Who wore your favorites?Happy Monday!! XO Andrea

Selena Gomez was my favorite in Atelier Versace

Taylor Swift looked Stunningly-Classic in Hervé Léger By Max Azria

Naya Rivera stood along bf Big Sean and she looked simple and elegant in Vintage Paco Rabanne

Beyoncé who didn't attend the VMA was spotted attending an after party at the PH-D Rootop Club in NYC. She wore a Tom Ford dress, Giuseppe Zanotti Clutch & Brian Atwood Pumps....FLAWLESS!

Fashion Spotlight - Pre Fall Shopping, On My List Are ZIGINY's 'Piarry' Suede Lace Up Thigh High Boots!

 
Happy Friday! This is my 200th post this year :), I really do love blogging and thank you to all of my readers as well! This fall for footwear is all about boots, from thigh high's to booties. Now I don't own a 1 pair of boots yet but within the next month I'm sure I'll have about 5 pairs, I am tall (5'8) and I believe my greatest feature are my legs and that's why Thigh Highs are going to be my go-to boot. I spotted these particular boots on Instagram and fell in LOVE! They are by ZIGINY and are the 'Piarry' Suede Lace Up Thigh High Boots for $129. From L-R are Tan, Black Lace & Black and are already soldout on the site I was going to order from which is ShopFlyJane but I'm sure if I do enough researching I will find another retailer. Now these boots are pricey but you should always invest when it comes to your wardrobe... Have you heard that saying 'You Buy Cheap, You Get Cheap'?! Well in some cases that isn't true but basically what I am saying is that YES all of my girls should invest into nice footwear especially for the fall and winter time.. You don't want cheap boots or even booties tearing apart within a month and you spent your hard earned money on them! What is your go-to shoe for this upcoming fall season?! XO Andrea

Tamara Ecclestone's style is none other than 'Effortlessly Chic'.

Tamara began her career at F1 magazine while also modeling for Armani, Tamara's became a successful broadcast personality, working with Sky 1, GMTV and the BBC.

Fashion Spotlight - Bright & Bold Handbags For Summer, The Hermés Birkin Bag In Lime Is My Favorite & A Look At The Nicki Minaj Collection For KMart!

                                                                                         (L-R) Petra Ecclestone and Kim Kardashian 

 Happy Friday! It's all about color this season and I find this bag to be the most beautiful structured handbag EVER! I did a post weeks ago on my dream handbag which is the iconic Hermés Birkin Bag. They of course have tons of colors to choose from but being that it's summer, I can only gush over this color so many times...Most of us girls dream daily of having this bag and there is nothing wrong with that at all! Real or Fake you can spot them almost anywhere and that's why I choose this specific bag, it gives a very clean polished look. Now there are many bright and bold handbags out there for every woman to choose from I just wanted to give you a glimpse of this one in particular...*sigh* Gosh this bag is gorgeous! What's one bag you are loving for this season?! XO Andrea

I think I might have fallen back in love with some pieces for Nicki Minaj's upcoming collection for KMart. She Instagramed a few pictures earlier and I will be honest, last month when I seen a sneak peak at her collection I wasn't really feeling it but this bodycon dress is gorgeous and perhaps it being at KMart means affordable as well. And how cute are those velour trackpants with the rhinestone print?! GORG. What do you think of her collection so far?! XO Andrea

Beauty Buzz - Are You Sexy, Sporty or Glam?, Michael Kors To Launch Beauty Line Exclusively At Macys!

Fall time is approaching and so are tons of beauty collections as well. One thing that I can say about Michael Kors is that he has the most GLAMOROUS ads ever! Now  the "Michael Kors" fashion brand has risen dramatically, from his classic watches on just about every fashion blogger and his infamous handbags that you probably see around town almost everyday he's now ready to take on a new game in the industry which happens to be beauty. "The wealthiest women in the world wear flip flops and a working girl might save up and buy the most outrageous bag she has ever owned" said Kors "The Collection has 3 distinct  lines, "She's Sexy", "She's Sporty" and "She's Glam". I wanted to do the essentials - the things that you absolutely have to have and represent the mood," Kors told WWD. He also stated "Sexy, sporty, and glam... has always been the DNA of Michael Kors, and in  strange way, the Michael Kors woman really is all three of those things." "Were taking that same attitude here, with beauty in general". The line will consist of three new fragrances ($50 each) along with  lip lacquers ($24), two lip luster glosses ($24), two nail polishes ($18), and bronze powders ($50). The colors will be a reflection of the specific collection.  Sexy will have a blue-red lip lacquer while Sporty will focus on nude-taupes. I am super excited about the Body Range of the line which will include Shimmer dry oil ($60), shimmer beath beads ($45), and a body cream ($60) along with a Liquid Self Tanner ($32), After Sun Gelee ($32) and then The After Sun Lip Balm ($28). The Sexy, Sport, Glam Collection will be sold at Michael Kors of course and exclusivley at Macys for next year and Industry Sources are reporting that this beauty line will bring in $80 Million for the first year of sales! Not bad for a first time beauty line and what I love is that these shades appeal to everyone. I will definitely be purchasing from this collection! XO Andrea

Tamara Ecclestone Jets Off To Paris To Do Some Designer Shopping Today!

Tamara Ecclestone looked gorgeous today while out in Paris shopping. Tamera's style is more now 'effortlessly chic' and I am loving it! She sported a casual blue silk dress with her 35cm Gris Crocodile Birkin handbag which is TDF along with some studded sandals. For those of you who don't know who Tamera Ecclestone is, she and her sister Petra are the Croatian-English heiress, models, socialites and daughters of former Armani model Slavica and "Formula 1 Supremo" Bernie Ecclestone. Anyways Tamara looks amazing!

Kate Upton Covers September 2013 Issue Of ELLE Magazine

This is defnitley Kate's sexiest cover yet! She looks gorgeous in a red Lanvin dress with her old Hollywood glam hairstyle, photographed by Carter Smith.

Beyoncé's Hair Stylist Rita Hazan Describes B's New Hair Do As "Old Hollywood Meets Modern Day"!

 I'm guessing this is Beyoncé's natural hair when she isn't wearing any weave and she looks BEY-utiful! It's nice to see her without all of her longer hair, at first she did look slightly different but the hair cut fits her, I seen this photo last night after she posted it on her Instagram last night!  Beyoncé actually visited a local Brooklyn salon owned by Neal Farinah who cut her hair! Her  hairstylist Rita Hazan who's been working with Mrs. Carter for a year, did Beyoncé's hue; she  chopped off her hair Tuesday night and colored it Wednesday night. Initially, says Hazan, "Her hair was long and went down her back. She'd been thinking about it for a while and she wanted to go for it and cut it. It was a moment that she had." Hazan describes the new look as "old Hollywood meets modern day. I started with her natural hair color. I left her base color the same and took thin pieces and highlighted them to this Champagne blond hair. It's soft but strong at the same time." XO Andrea
