Get the Look From Burberry '13

The effortless chic make up look is what we crave. We see beautiful posh women wearing it with dewy skin and flawless application. And then we sit in front of the mirror with our caboodle (yes, I just said caboodle) trying to figure out what products to use to achieve the look. I love this fresh look from Burberry's make up line and best part is we cracked the case which products were used! So, take notes us dolls can be as fierce as the make up Melanie Laurant rocked at London Autumn 2013 show.


Here are the Burberry products you need now!

Top Trends of NYFW Made Easy

The biggest week in fashion has come to a close. New York Fashion Week dazzled the stiletto wearing, ipad photographing, fashionistas that flock to the shows of the designers we envy. There's endless shows on site, off site, live streaming- what is a fashion blogger to do in order to cover them all? Luckily the Lifestyle Editor at Gilt.com, Chassie Post has narrowed down the trends to make it manageable to know what to wear, look out for in 2013. Like Post, I found these trends my top favs among the crowd.




MOSAIC PRINTS:
  • We saw whimsical prints for Spring and are head over heels for the geometric mosaic patterns we are seeing.
  • From J Crew, Derek Lam, Jeremy Scott, Narciso Rodriguez, Cynthia Rowley, Bibhu Mohapatra we've seen this ancient design reworked in bold color for 2013.
  • Be it a sweater., top or full on vest – we can't wait to mix these eye popping prints into ouyr wardrobes.







FIT & FLARE
  • The peplum hasn't gone anywhere and I for one am glad of it.
  • Whereas last season we saw loads of peplum dresses, this season we are seeing lots of fit and flared tops that can be paired with pants or skirts.
  • Separates are the name of the game for Fall and these exaggerated peplums Prabal Gurung,  Zach Posen, Vera Wang, Behnaz Sarafpour, Christian Siriano, Proenza Schouler are an easy and incredibly chic update.




EMBROIDERY:
·         We saw some outrageously beautiful and ornate embroidery come down the runways
·         Gold, silver and jewel embellished ornamentation lent a baroque feel to everything from gowns to capes and dresses pants and even tops.
·         Naeem Khan, Monique Lhuillier, Zac Posen, Prabal Gurung, Oscar de la Renta, Tory Burch


PUMP UP THE VOLUME - OVERSIZED COATS:
  • If you were wondering what coat you would need of Fall take a cue from Alexander Wang, Behnaz Saraphour, Thom Browne, Chado ralph Rucci, DKNY and pump up the volume with an oversized coat.
  • We are loving these architectural outerwear statements that iare characterized by structure.  From the sleeves to the shoulder to the body of the coat, bigger is better this season

Fashion Radar:Louboutin Sells Sex

Who says women don't pay for sex?Christian Louboutin,known for his red killer soled heels launches a nude pump with swarovski crystals that spell out the word SEX when your feet are together. This is raising some eyebrows and catching the eyes of a lot of media today. The question is who are going to buy more of these pairs? I want to know if  women will for attention or men who are buying for their women? For $1400, Louboutin doesn't care who buys but it and you too can get lucky.  Katy Perry and Kate Upton have been seen prancing NYC and red carpets in them already. Here is your Privy Find of the day, dolls!

Entertainment: Akira Fashion Show Recap

Last week, Akira filled the Lyric Opera house with whose who of Chicago to get a preview of what the fashionistas of Chicago will be wearing this spring. All looks will be available in stores and Shop Akira.  The zig zag runway brought out media and shoppers alike to look at the many stories Akira had to share this season in their annual spring show called Valley of the Castles. PrivyDoll had seats ready to scope out the latest trends from Chicago's retail megahouse, Akira.



Opening the show was Erin Martin, a local who happens to be on The Voice who preformed a brand new song.  Guarded doors that opened up to the runway were released and models in spring tones appeared. The biggest trends of the season: chiffons, pastels and girly prints. Jumpsuits and sheer looks also made it into many of the looks.
The men were not left out on this cat walk. Men sporting boat shoes and colored sole shoes rocked the runway with preppy looks. Colored shorts and stripe sweaters were in the majority of the looks for spring. A fashion show for mens would not be complete without a series of shirtless models rocking swim trunks. Accessory: armor. Clearly, their abs and shields will scare off any straight girl.

Fashion Radar: Skin is IN



Skin is in, but before you shed your clothes Privy is talking about animal print. Keep your clothes on and accent them with great accessories from the wild. snakeskin and other prints are great for accessories. Show the inner animal with wearing animal skin patterns on your handbags and shoes this spring. Handbags are all the rage with animal print and using some unexpected colors that you wouldn't find in the wild such as neons. Mix these two trends for one hot spring!

I love this envelope clutch from Blues by:KyKy,They also have a leather clutch line of neons which are just so fun! You can see the entire collection HERE. 



These bags by Victor Hugo are must haves. the vibrant colors and soft leather is a perfect way to sport skin this spring/summer. I adore this fresh green color with chain. 


For another easy way to wear skin this spring check out these snakeskin print flats from Michael Kors for $185. Found at CUSP, these are adorable with skinny jeans or pants rolled up.
