spring break must-haves!

Spring break is an American institution. Once reserved only for college students, it’s now a seasonal adventure for all ages, and styles. While plotting our own mad dashes for warmer climes — New York City can be brutal in March — we looked to some of our favorite vloggers and bloggers for inspiration.

The holiday party circuit is drawing to a close, but there’s still one final blowout left: New Year’s Eve! The biggest celebration of the year offers the perfect excuse to put on one last, super-fabulous frock – whether you’re attending a black-tie affair or just throwing back some bubbly with your besties.

girl crush: Lily Collins

 

Lily Collins is the cutest thing since that baby panda sneezed on YouTube…she has amazing style and a gorgeous set of killer brows that make Brooke Shield’s look sparse. With her flawless porcelain skin and black-as-night tresses, she was the obvious choice for the role of Snow White in the fairytale remake “Mirror Mirror.”

Off screen the girl has an eye for fashion appointing her our girl crush of the week.

Our favorite looks from ‘Mad Men’

it’s back! Finally, our Mad Men withdrawal is relieved! In the year and a half since we last checked in on Don, Betty, Joan, and Peggy, we’ve all been left with lingering questions – and a hunger for those clothes. Yes, yes, the plot is brilliant and the characters, fascinating, but, to be honest, we’re just as excited for the return of all that gorgeous period fashion.The show epitomizes a time when men and women alike relished dressing for the day, and knew how to make a statement with their attire.

From Joan’s curve-hugging shifts to Betty’s flouncy skirts, each character has a signature look that says something important about their personalities. Here, we’ve recapped our favorite fashion moments from the four leading women – with high hopes that this season’s wardrobe will top them all.

Betty in Rome

Betty’s amazing outfit in Rome is forever seared into this fashion blogger’s brain: the sexy straps, the black – a color unusual for preppy Betty – all accompanied by amazing hair and makeup. It was transformation enough to rekindle the Drapers’ marriage, if just for one evening.

Joan’s Red Dress

This red dress has seen a lot of screen time, with good reason. It perfectly complements Christina Hendricks’ hair color and figure, achieving a lovely balance between bombshell and professional.

Peggy in Plaid

Peggy is more focused on her career than her clothes. She always looks presentable, but isn’t always in a showstopper. But who could forget this outfit? A perfect cut and fit, in whimsical plaid.

Faye’s Black-and-White

Dr. Faye Miller is a charmingly complicated character, but her clothes are simple: professional cuts and lots of black-and-white. She lets her work speak for itself, with her outfits as a neutral backdrop. This scarf-neck dress is subtle and gorgeous. (And the Rorsharch-esque print, a wink at her profession.)

 

high fashion, faux fur

At tarte, we’re all about natural beauty: we just think that wearing things that don’t hurt you or the planet is a no-brainer. This season, as we’ve seen fur make a comeback, we’ve yearned for a way to rock the luxe look that doesn’t compromise our standards. The answer: go faux!

With tons of designers (both high and low) putting out high-quality faux fur pieces, there’s no excuse not to buy fake. We’ve rounded up a couple looks that are as gorgeous as the real thing, without any of the cruelty.

Sarah Michelle Gellar rocked this fake and furry Juicy Couture coat on the red carpet.

We love the look of a fur trim, like the one on this cozy MARC by Marc Jacobs peacoat.

 

Rachel Zoe’s  faux fur line for QVC- including this gorgeous vest – is approved by the style maven herself.

Sienna Miller’s shaggy Topshop jacket is right on trend, especially when paired with slim pants and heels.


This glam cropped coat from Anna Sui is fuzzy, warm, and 100% cruelty-free.

 

 

 

Faux fur can glam up your accessories, too – from a pair of sweet gloves to a fluffy stole. These pieces are budget-style steals from Forever 21.

Jen’s Pick: SAAKO Scarves

Hey tartelettes,

Jen here, introducing my new column Jen’s Pick, where I’ll be sharing eco-friendly must-haves that I just can’t keep to myself!

The Details: SAAKO Scarves. Handmade in Barcelona, these incredible pieces are edgy, trendy and currently at the top of my fall fashion accessory list.

The Low Down: Design geniuses Ines Brito and Joana Gouveia began experimenting with jersey in 1989, turning the material into trendy neckwear. With ‘reuse’ as their creative philosophy, they produced earthy and vibrant scarves from recycled fabrics.

What’s to Love: SAAKO scarves are extremely comfortable, affordable, and add a bohemian edge to any look, making them a fantastic year-round addition to your closet. Plus, they also make great gifts!

Don’t keep it to yourself! Share any eco-stylish designers or products you can’t go without on our Facebook or twitter page.

Xo,

Jen

 

Summer Cuts!

We tend to turn to Hollywood for fashion advice and the latest trends. So, why not trust them to try haircuts and styles they’ve previously rocked?  From Blake to Emma and all those lovely styles in between, there’s no reason to take on the rest of the summer with the same ole hair style you dawned last season. Get wild and edgy with a pixie cut like Miss Watson or try a short bob with a beachy-wave like Kiera Knightly. For those of you tartelettes who can’t part with your long locks, try an easy style like Vanessa Hudgens; simple, long and straight. You can also go “au natural” like Blake Lively and flaunt your endless, wavy mane.  Whatever style you choose— wear it with confidence and you’ll be sure to turn heads.

What hair style are you embracing or thinking of trying this August?
