holiday trend alert: sequins

 

This holiday season is all about glitz and glam, and sequins are back — in a big way.  We’re not talking ‘80’s- style prom dress sequins, but a subtle and elegant dash of glitter that gives just the right amount of edge to any outfit. In fact, adding some sparkle to your look is not only one of 2011′s hottest trends — it’s also one of the easiest.  If you don’t already have your go -to sequin accessory, you need to get one before the holiday party circuit starts. Here, we’ve rounded up some of the glittery, most versatile pieces on the market. Get your shine on!

friends & family gift guide: the fashionista

In honor of our week long friends & family 30% off sale, we decided to ask some of our nearest and dearest what they’d like to give or get this year.

 

who: Jen Steele, assistant fashion editor at Cosmopolitan

claim to fame: Jen’s worked in magazines for nearly five years—and has been on every side of a photoshoot—from the model to the assistant, the stylist, and the photographer. Currently at Cosmopolitan magazine, Jen works on nearly every fashion and beauty shoot alongside her editor. She’s also currently working on a photobook to publish in 2012: a collection of photos taken during her years as a fashion assistant.

her gift list:

1.  tarte puttin’ on the glitz color collection & clutch: “I love how many options you get with this! Three gorg face palettes, plus a cute little clutch to hold my essentials for the night.”

2.  Suzannah Wainhouse Cross Earrings: “Love her jewelry designs —  the craftsmanship is impeccable.”

3. Kate: The Kate Moss Book: “I’m obsessed with Kate Moss and hence this book, it’s a collectible. Want it!”

4. Acne Simone Blushed Blazer: “This blazer is so chic, yet fashion forward.”

5. Wundervoll bras:  Wundervoll is one of my fave lingerie desingers. It’s seriously so comfortable while still being sexy.”

6. La Colombe Corsica blend: “Hello, coffee. This one is so bold and flavorful, YUM.”

Jen’s Pick: Organic Denim

 

As a lover of all things chemical-free, I wanted to share with you some of my favorite organic denim brands — and the celebs who wear them. These blue jeans are earth-friendly, natural and have serious style.

 

Manolo Blahnik’s Earth-Friendly New Collection

 

Good morning tartelettes!

Have you heard,  Manolo Blahnik’s gone green?! The infamous powerhouse has a new sustainable shoe collection, and it’s everything an eco-conscious fashionista could ask for and more! I love reading about these type of collaborations, especially when related to my most favorite accessory: shoes! Designer Marcia Patmos was asked to create an eco-friendly line for the label, and after spending a considerable amount of time researching sustainable material, came up with two incredible styles made out of tilapia skin (interestingly enough a byproduct from the food industry), cork and raffia. These beautiful shoes — an adorable open-toe flat and a sexy, strappy sandal — come in gorgeous color combinations: nude, yellow, black and electric blue.

These are the first earth-friendly designs to be released by Manolo Blahnik and I couldn’t be more thrilled to see the fashion heavyweight take up the green cause! Like we always say, luxury and sustainability are not mutually exclusive. What do you gals think of the latest eco-friendly creations?

 

 

Style Envy: Emily Blunt’s Modern Chic

We love our Brits: the attitude, the accents, the style! Take Emily Blunt for instance, she not only has amazing cheekbones but a fantastic fashion sense as well. Emily always looks put together and her classic, yet modern wardrobe makes her this week’s style star. Perhaps she picked up a few style tips while on the set of The Devil Wears Prada — but I have a hunch she was just born chic!

Absolutely adorable, fashionably fearless, we tip our trendy caps to you Emily.

Cheerio tartelettes!

Style Envy: Liv Tyler’s Classic Look

For a girl who says style isn’t one of her priorities, she definitely sports some stunning outfits. Then again, working with Rachel Zoe to update your wardrobe can’t hurt.

The daughter of rocker Steven Tyler and model Bebe Buell, Liv Tyler has spent most of her life in the spotlight, and over the years has transformed her usually low-key style to a more sleekly classic wardrobe — making her a full-force fashionista. And I might add, she’s looking more lean and fit than ever. Perhaps her more conservative style will eventually rub off on her parents.

Five stars for Liv Tyler. Rock on!

 

Love Liv’s perma-rosy cheeks? You can recreate the look with our Amazonia clay 12-hour blush in dollface, then finish off with a dab of  our LipSurgence™ lip luster lip tint in adored.
