Every day, I find myself inspired by real women and their style. So I wanted to take a minute on TODAY and call out some great examples of fashionable women I met during my travels. Check out what I found below and click here for all of the images.
And if you or someone you know has great style, send me your pics here and maybe you could be on the show next.
All Hallow’s Eve may not be for another 3 weeks, but if you’re dead-set on having a great costume, planning ahead should be a must! That’s why this week’s Win-It is full of goodies to help you have a stylish Halloween. I gathered up fun nail polish, a mini makeup bag, Benefit’s She-Laq (a magical makeup sealer), and even a hairstyling kit complete with every kind of barrette, pin, pony holder and roller you’ll need to create the perfect costume-y coif.
To win, follow me on Twitter and reTweet the contest mention. The winner will be announced tomorrow, Friday, October 8 at 5:00PM EST.
And P.S. even if you’re planning on procrastinating, I’ve still got you covered! I’ll be doing a last minute DIY costume segment on the TODAY Show on 10/29.
Whether it’s a sweater with a hole, a top with a tear or just an old hat that needs some TLC, metal trinkets can be quick and fun fashion fixes. Sewing on a knit is particularly easy because of its wide weave, so grab a bucket full of buttons or buy box of beads at the craft store and build yourself some quality couture! I zoomed in on a few designer details to get your creative juices flowing.
Liz Claiborne has been a household name in women’s fashion for decades. Which is why it was exciting news to hear about the exclusive partnership between the iconic brand and JCPenney. And to help celebrate this launch, I will be hosting a few fun fashion shows across the country starting today! I’ll be in Atlanta this evening, October 5th, from 6-8pm at the Kennesaw Mall to help spread the buzz, share my best tips and tricks and maybe even do a little shopping myself. If you are in the area, come by and check it out!
And stay tuned for more details on the Liz/JCPenney shows I will be hosting in Miami (November 3), Chicago (November 10), and Minneapolis (November 17).
For any fashionistas out there looking for daring adornments as Halloween approaches, I bring you these ‘deathly’ designs by Alexander McQueen! Not for the faint of heart or wallet, you can find the rings at Saks and Net-a-Porter for $280-$370.
Denim is a huge part of fashion & culture, whether blue is one of your best colors or not. Thankfully beauty experts at Lipstick Queen devised a way to help out any women who might not love their complexion when they don the classic blue hue. “Jean Queen” lipsticks and glosses were formulated specifically to enhance your skin tone and coloring against the cool, matte look of your favorite Levi’s. How smart!
Nothing I love more than a smart update to a classic item! The design duo behind the brand “Symmetry” adds a simple chain to their lightweight scarf collection, lending a touch of modern, heavy metal appeal to an otherwise soft & traditional accessory. The system also has a more practical application– for those obsessed with posing their scarves to perfection, the grommets help lock a style in place from one wear to the next!
This week’s Minute Buzz was extra special– I shared beauty buys with Kathie Lee & Hoda that are not only cute and pink but even more importantly help spread the Buzz about breast cancer awareness. To purchase any of the products mentioned, head to the TODAY Show allDay blog for info.
Check out another video I shot as Simon Malls official “Style Guide.” This one features every girl’s favorite, shoes! And TGIF–you can head out to the mall this weekend if you spot something you can’t live without! Be sure to let me know what you think and check back again next week for another lil’ video full of helpful hints and styling tips.
P.S. If you’re in the Boston area, I’ll be at Burlington Mall this Saturday afternoon! xx
I’ve been noticing a lot of chic suede styles in stores and with dry weather finally upon us, now’s the perfect time to try out the textile. Whether you’re looking to accent your ensemble with a soft piece or splurge on a sleek statement jacket, there’s a suede to satisfy every taste.
After Melissa and Jeremy tied the knot on TODAY this morning, I felt the need to spread even more love with this week’s win-it. Now that you know what to wear to a fall wedding, how about what to give?
This week’s winner will receive the Mojuba Bride and Groom survival kits including every little item that he and she will need before the big event. From a Madame Paulette couture stain removal kit to the essential Listerine Pocket Mists (and even playing cards for any downtime before or after the ceremony), you’ll get all of the essential items and a few fun indulgences.
To win, all you have to do is follow me on Twitter and Retweet the contest mention. The winner will be announced tomorrow (10/1) at 5pm EST.
As TODAY’s Wedding Series culminates tomorrow with Melissa and Jeremy saying “I Do” on the Plaza, I wanted to share a few suggestions for everyone who may also have an upcoming fall wedding to attend. Click below to watch my segment from this morning and find more info about the looks here.
Living in NYC offers both fashionistas and people-watchers a great opportunity to enjoy street style, and having seen quite a few of these animal-inspired accessories recently, I decided to spread the buzz. Spirit Hoods have been building a big fan base in the music industry, where artists like Fergie, Bruno Mars & Kesha have all finished off edgy ensembles with the faux furs. A portion of the proceeds goes to helping real life critters and with Halloween around the corner, I bet you’re going to start seeing a lot more of these cuddly, kind-hearted hoods topping heads across the country.
