The NAKED Nail

The-Fashion-Bite-Katie-Roof-Mary-Kate-And-Ashley-Olsen-The-Naked-Nail

I find myself to be a strange mix between a product junkie and a minimalist.

If I have a dinner, a date, a GNO, or some kind of event to attend… I’m all about prepping, primping, and pulling myself together. HOWEVER, 9 times out of 10 you will see me sans makeup with a giant rats nest on top of my head. Sorry, but I’m a busy girl, and I’m not about to waste an hour getting ready to go to Whole Foods or hot yoga. Ain’t nobody got time for that.

That being said… I’m all about the naked nail trend that is happening. Yep. Naked. Nails. Not ‘nude’… NAKED. I’m a nail-biter, and a picker… so as soon as I get that first chip it’s game over and I’ve picked the rest of my polish off… leaving a Hansel & Gretel style nail polish trail wherever I go. I know. SO gross… but true.

The Olsens have been embracing the naked nail for a LONG time now… which is good enough for me! #WWOD?

Just remember to keep them short, clean, and buffed… cuz long naked nails are a no-no!

Oh ya, and this trend does NOT go for your tootsies too. Keep those puppies polished at all times!

Real vs. Steal: Cuff Me

It’s no secret I loooooove me some MK&A, I mean, these girls just get it! When I saw this Elizabeth and James Delano Cuff I HAD to have it. The double gold bands with the Lapiz detailing… i die.
As much as I love this cuff… I knew there had to be steal out there, cuz let’s face it… I’d rather get a whole new outfit H2T than just one amazing piece. What I found is pretty darn close minus the gemstones, but whateves, it will still totally get the job done.

What to Wear Wednesdays: Come as you are.

Flannel is absolutely one of my favorite trends of 2012! It’s comfy and cute with a Seattle grunge edge that totally reminds me of my youth! I’m completely mad about 90’s fashion and thrilled that it has made its reprise. My favorite way to wear flannel is over a vintage band tee & paired with some ripped black tights and boots. I feel there is a flannel for every occasion! Above are some of my favorite flannel fashions…

What to wear…? Wednesdays: are you fur real?

grrr baby grrr… break out the fur.

Could it be that this seemingly endless summer that we’ve been having here in San Diego is finally meeting its demise…? Somebody, pinch me! I have been longing for winter weather and all that it entails… peppermint lattes, cozying up by the fire, and most importantly the FASHION! This season it is ALL about fur. Fur coats, fur vests, fur collars, you name it! I personally love this trend because I feel it lends itself to a variety of personal styles. Whether your look is classic, boho, or rocker chic… there’s a fur for that. There is no need to hunt long and hard for a fabulous fur, they’re everywhere! I have spotted some drool-worthy ones at FXII, H&M, Lulu’s, and Nasty Gal… so unleash your inner wild child and rock this savage trend.

Trend Alert Tuesday: Pinky Promise

Well, it looks like pinky rings are back with a vengeance [or did they ever leave??]… either way, they’re not just for ballers, wise-guys, evil villains, and British royalty anymore. It seems that everybody from foodies to fashionistas are sporting the apparently timeless trend. Pinkie rings appear to be especially popular among our male counterparts and I have to admit… I’m kind of digging it!

 Can you spot the child star turned super talented [and super hunky] actor who made pinky rings look twice as nice??

Trend Alert Tuesday: Loafer Love.

The penny loafer originated in the 1930s. Loafers in general were a very popular shoe at the time among both men and women. In an effort to make his loafer stand out from the crowd, John Bass created a strap across the top of the shoe that resembled a pair of lips. People started placing pennies in these openings both to adorn their tootsies and because that was the cost to make a call from a pay-phone [remember those things??] … how convenient!

Ashley Olsen, Naya Rivera, and Elizabeth Olsen lookin’ good in their loafers.

It seems that the penny loafer has made a comeback and I couldn’t be happier! They are cute, comfy, and look good with [almost] everything. Just look at those pretty pennies.

Pixie Lott dresses ’em up, dresses ’em down, and wears her loafers all around town.
