With the sun blazing from LA to NY, this girl needs some runway inspiration before I melt away in my boring white tank. Season after season Giambattista Valli never ceases to amaze me. I couldn’t help but ogle over his 2010 collection and share with you two “shady lady” images that scream glamorous summer!  Whether it’s a day-time mini, chic-evening frock, a look inspired by the Roaring Twenties or a throwback to the ‘50s, I want every piece in my wardrobe now (hey, this fashion, savvy-twenty something can dream, right?)

Black and green being two of my favorite colors mixed with fringed mini skirts… forget it, I’ve died and gone to fashion heaven! Unfortunately, these goodies will not be hanging in my closest anytime soon. However, I can replicate some of these leggy catwalkers’ style .

For starters, these jumbo mirrored lenses instantly remind me of Johnny Depp in Willy Wonka & I love it! They are timeless (I swear my Grandma once wore these), chic and unquestionably sexy . I found the perfect pair of Chloe Myrte’s to achieve all of the above.

Now, I wouldn’t be a tartelette if I didn’t notice that  stunning neon pout. The bold hue is both red and coral. I hit the beauty lottery by swiping on 1 base coat of LipSurgence™ lip stain  in joy (a perfect peach) and 1 top coat in lust (brilliant red)! I love both colors alone, but why not give it a twist by layering? It’s the perfect lip product for pop colors because they require no liner and are juicy, but not too glossy that the color might bleed. This creative boost of color completes the entire look. I hope this inspires you to step out of your style box and have fun with your fashion before the summer is over.
