Keeping on a leopard theme today I thought I would post this stunning picture from the Dolce & Gabbana Evocative Fall 2010 Makeup Collection... Scarlett Johansson is the face of the campaign and she is absolutely gorgeous in this sexy and dramatic makeup collection... This picture makes me want to try a deep berry stained lip, I am suddenly feeling inspired again!!
I have had my eye on this cardigan at H&M this week and I think I am going to go back for it tomorrow, it is super cute and I could wear it with my boyfriend jeans or black skinny pants or over a little black shift dress I just bought!! So I guess I have already convinced myself and this great casual chic outfit Claudia Schiffer was sporting around town on a fashionable Saturday afternoon was enough for me to say, I need to have it!! Do you own any leopard or animal print pieces?

As previous posts indicate I am a huge Nicole Richie and Audrey Hepburn fan... And when I saw this picture of Nicole I thought her entire look had such a fresh and chic Audrey vibe to it! Her eye grazing bangs and pinned up high chignon are so effortlessly beautiful and her barely there makeup looks polished to perfection, this is a classic look that can be done day or night...

I was so happy to see Katherine Heigl has returned to her beautiful blonde hue, as gorgeous as she is I was not a big fan of the chocolate brown colour she was sporting over the last year... It is always fun to try out new hair colours and I have made a few mistakes myself, at one point I was so blonde my husband referred to me as "Vegas Mom"... Over much trial and error I have definitely learned what shades work for me and what shades don't, lol!

This pic of Kate Hudson makes me long for a cold winter day... Strictly for fashion reasons of course!! I totally love her cozy chic cream coat and classic skinny jeans paired with these super sexy over the knee boots... This outfit is simple but totally stylish... I found a very similar but much more affordable pair on the Forever 21 website, these would be such a fun pair of boots to own and would add instant glam to any outfit... For $34.80 they are so affordable and they really are a must have for every gal... Would you do the over the knee boot?

These three ladies show how easy it is to take your wardrobe from summer to fall! Every girl should have a great pair of black shorts and a simple white dress shirt, these two key pieces can be paired together for any occasion... This pairing looks amazing with a killer pair of platform heels or on a cooler weather day try it out with opaque tights and sexy black boots... Accessories are absolutely a must in bringing your personal style to the ensemble, try a chunky necklace or stack on a few bangles on your arm to spice it up!! This is how black and white is done right...

Ooh I just couldn't resist posting these adorable leatherette oxford booties from Forever 21, I spotted them today and I need to have them asap... The cognac brown colour is gorgeous and even better they are only $31.80!! These would look great with a pair of cuffed boyfriend jeans or tights and a floral mini dress, the outfit mixing and matching possibilities are endless... I will keep you posted, I may actually just order them online...

When I saw this picture of Katie Holmes I absolutely had to post it! She looks stunning in this Calvin Klein dress at the designer's show during New York's Fashion Week... Katie looks the epitome of Calvin Klein chic in her ivory frock and the tousled bob and understated makeup are perfection (plus it is nice to see her in something other than giant boyfriend jeans and plaid shirts!)... This look proves that simple and elegant never go out of style, bravo Katie!

I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of my new boyfriend jeans from the Gap online!! I couldn't resist when they sent me a 2 day 40% off coupon, I figured they were really meant to be mine... I like that they are not ripped or too worn looking, I think they will be my "dressy" bf jeans!! I'll keep you posted on the fit and look when they get here!!

Wow Blake Lively looked so stunning in her red Chanel Haute Couture dress in Toronto for the Film Festival this weekend... She is red carpet perfectection, her hair and makeup are gorgeous and although she looks like a screen siren she is still completely fresh and age appropriate in this killer crimson sheath... And note the completely drool worthy shoes to match, Blake puts Serena Van Der Woodsen to shame in this fabulous frock!!

I have been checking out some of the latest makeup trends for Fall and we are seeing a plethora of purple shadows unlike last year's deep dark shades this season is a little punchier and rich... This look can be worn day or night, but keep it soft for day and play it up at night and keep the rest of your makeup simple so your eyes are the main focus... Try Cover Girl Smoky Shadow Blast in Silver Sky to achieve this look, you can pick it up at Shoppers Drugmart for under $10 and it looks amazing on all eye colours!

I love this outfit Rachel Bilson was spotted wearing at an event recently... She has such great style and can pull off any trend effortlessly and she does it here in this season's super hot leather shorts, this look is not for the faint of heart! She has styled this outfit perfectly using the contrast of the feminine floral blouse and sexy stilettos to soften the tough black leather shorts, she looks so totally amazing... Another Rachel look to love!!

I have been eyeballing these slim cropped black pants from The Gap premium pant collection for a few weeks now and my local Gap has no sizes left in them... Sooo luckily I found them online and now that they ship in Canada I can have them delivered to my door, yipee!! I love the look of these pants they have an Audrey Hepburn style to them and I am super excited for them to arrive and if they don't fit I can take them right back to the store and return them no problem... I will keep you posted on their arrival and fit!!

So I decided after a busy long weekend to give myself a pedicure today! I am always drawn to OPI's Russian collection, there are so many fantastic dark rich colours that are perfect for fall... I chose Siberian Nights for this month, it is a dark glossy blackish purple shade and surprisingly is a great neutral... It is the perfect colour to wear with my silver metallic snakeskin peep toe heels that I am wearing to a friend's wedding this weekend!

These two pictures of Emily Blunt make it so impossibly hard to decide between the sexy red lip or the dark smokey eyes... I think Emily can wear either look beautifully and although I personally tend to go for a darker eye and soft lip for evening the matte red lip is instant glam and totally chic on any gal!

A major trend we are going to see this fall is dark nail polish, Christina Applegate is rocking black nails on the red carpet recently and she looks fab!! One of my favourite dark but not quite black shades is Lincoln Park After Dark by O.P.I, it is a really deep purple with a high gloss finish and it works on every skin tone... This is definitely a fall essential for every girl whether you try it as your mani or pedi colour and it's a totally inexpensive way to look chic and trendy!
