I am in a shoe obsessed mood right now, so bear with me. I can thank Chinese Laundry for that. Last night, I spent a few hours over at the Chinese Laundry Golden Globes after party held at the W hotel in Hollywood.
The night was filled with laughter and fun (wink wink) with a few gal pals. There were even a few interesting sightings. It was held in “The Living Room” inside the W, which was massive.
You can check out the photos on their Facebook page here.
I wore this top by L8ter clothing via Macy’s, tights from Target, and jewelry, skirt, and shoes from Forever 21.
This F21 necklace is becoming one of my favorite pieces. So, you just might see it in a few of my upcoming outfits.
Evans model, Quinn Miles picks her favorite pieces for 2011 (above). They are fun, flirty, and perfect for spring. Will harem pants make it on your spring list? My picks from the UK retailer are below, what do you think?
Glee star Amber Riley looks amazing on the red carpet as she arrives for the Golden Globes. She was my favorite curvaliscious star of the night! Actually, she was one of my favorite looks of the night period. Doesn’t she look flawless in her Oliver Tolentino creation?

My night as a CoverGirl was a very exciting night! Now, you get to see my makeover process during the “Primping Party.” I was having technical difficulties after the party and I couldn’t post the video until now.
My hair was styled by Besma of the Frederic Fekkai Salon and my makeup was done by Toby Fleischman. I felt so glamorous!

It doesn’t hurt that most of them can be worn as crossbody bags which is a bonus in my book. Especially, since I need my hands free for shopping. The Coral Leather Lock Handle Bag is divine, but for $110, I might need to find a cheaper alternate. Unless I can get my hands on some coupon codes (hint, hint).

A few months ago, I was lucky enough to try out a few pieces courtesy of JMS and I am pleasantly surprised at not only the great quality but, the price point. All the designs above range from $13.99-$19.99 and a lot of them make great basics and layering pieces. I actually have the JMS EasyDressing Sweater Coat in black and I love it!

As I write this, the snow has already begun to fall in the Northeast. Brrrr…I love the snow, but what I’ve heard about this storm is not appealing. So, what does any fashionista do in the snow? Put on fabulous snow boots of course! As a California girl, I’ve never owned a pair of snow boots. The closest I’ve gotten to any cold weather boots are my trusty Uggs. Sad, I know.
If I had to choose a free pair, I’d definitely take these Aquatalia boots for a whopping $450 or this Yves Saint Laurent boot that’s on sale for $675! I said if they were free! I wouldn’t pay that much for boots! What’s the most you’ve paid for snow boots? Was it worth it?
Regardless of your snow boot style, just promise me you’ll stay warm out there!
KleanSpa is a company that is dedicated to sharing their gift of “scentual discovery with others by providing luxurious and refreshing products.” Products that are “high quality, competitively-priced, naturally-focused, while pleasing the body, nose and spirit.”
Of course the mist isn’t the only thing I’ve fallen in love with. Thanks to KleanSpa, I was given a “Taste” of KleanSpa gift set ($34.50) to try out. ((Enter to win your own set below!)) This included the Sugar Body Polish in Let it Snow, the Whipped Shea Body Butter in Perfect Pumpkin, and the Mist in Roasted Nut & Orange Peel. Seriously, I just want to eat it all…BUT YOU CAN’T! It’s not edible. Oh darn!
And you don’t have to buy these products in a set. The Sugar Body Polish ($13.50) , Whipped Shea Body Butter ($12.50), Mist ($10.50), and more are sold separately at delicious prices. I might just have to try out their Bath Syrup ($7) or KleanSpa Candle ($9).
Their ingredients consist of items like shea butter/oil, avocado oil, coconut oil, green tea powder, and more. MOST of their ingredients are natural…but, where it’s impossible to find a substitute, they do use a fragrance oil. And all products are always human tested first and they use a non-paraben preservative.
If you’re in the Los Angeles area you can stop by their Burbank or Santa Monica locations for their monthly Blending Bash where you can “Kreate” your own signature fragrance for only $35!
At the Bash, you will personally work with Jennifer (the owner) to create your own signature fragrance. Then you will make a 1/3oz Roll-on Perfume and a 4oz Lotion (or a bath Syrup in the Santa Monica store). Sounds like fun! Hmmmm…wonder what I’ll call my signature scent?
