It's Rather Glamorous.

Happy Thanksgiving loves! I just wanted to take a minute to share with you one of my favorite holiday collections, 'Glamor Daze' is the MAC Holiday Collection for 2012! All of the colors and pallets are, well, glamorous! Each of these items make wonderful gifts at an affordable price, and because this is a limited edition collection, everything is one of a kind!  
A true lipstick wearer, I am truly excited to try several of these! My favorites are 'Outrageously Fun' (third from the left), 'Innocence' (second from the left) and 'Dramatic Encounter' (last from the left). Lipstick isn't for everyone, but with the right outfit, all of these colors can pop!
I've selected these four from the eye shadows as my favorites! 'Divine Blue' (bottom left) and 'Round Midnight' (bottom right) are holiday-approved colors! The jewel tones give a slightly wintery but festive feel. I always encourage everyone to be festive with not only outfits but makeup and accessories as well during the holidays, it's so easy to dress up your attire without going over the top for dinner or holiday parties!
I'm not a huge fan of eyeliner, but lately I've been trying a turquoise liner with gold or neutral shadows. These colors are pretty basic but can add a little flair to your eyes! 'Mystery' (third from the left) is soft army green that will surely deepen your eyes for either a smoky eye or even possibly a brighter look!
Nail polish is the easiest way to express yourselves ladies! Whenever I wear my favorite polish, 'Baker Street' by London Nails Inc.', I always get compliments. Given a vibrant or interesting color, people will notice your hands! I personally adore 'Everything that Glitters' (last from the left) and 'In the Limelight' (second from the left). 'Everything that Glitters' is dark and fancy with a little attitude, the sparkles will accommodate nicely perhaps for New Year's Eve! 

I hope you and your families are blessed, safe and thankful wherever you may be spending your holiday!
Stay tuned for an outfit post either later today or tomorrow!
Happy Turkey Day!



Falling out of Fall.

Unfortunately, the weather is fluctuating constantly so I'm not able to truly get into my winter wardrobe just yet. But I'm definitely excited to debut my new items to you guys! A nice, sunny day in DC permitted me to wear my new trench coat that I have been absolutely loving lately! Also, this is my second time wearing my suede 'Dolce Vita' loafers that you may recognize from my Pretty Finds #4. post. Hopefully my next post will feature some winter gear! Enjoy!

I'd also like to give a special shout-out to my new photographer, Chamille! She is pretty amazing as you can see through my shots!

Happy Tuesday!


Pretty Finds #5.

 Hello my Still Pretty readers! Please appreciate my apologies when I tell you that I am truly sorry for the lack of posts over the past two months. My life has been quite hectic lately and I have been slacking quite a bit! I also have good news as well, Still Pretty has decided to take on a new look! Over the next few weeks I will be in touch with different people to help me work toward a whole new look including a logo as well! So please be patient, and bear with me through our technical changes! Until then, here are some Pretty Finds to help move your closet along into Fall/Winter 2012-13 as the bitter cold approaches!
I am completely in love with this jacket! It incorporates two of my favorite trends, capes and tweed! This season, capes and ponchos alike have been quite visible in the fashion world; they can act as a quick throw-on or be dressed up for a more classy look. This specific style can be found on the 'ASOS' website, but many other variations are available at other stores.

Who doesn't love leather, or faux leather for that matter? Leather continues to be classic winter trend time after time. As different trends arrive on the scene, leather is mixed with these to create a newer look. On the left, I've chosen a peplum top made of faux leather, peplum has been increasingly popular for a while now and has willingly worked its way into our Fall/Winter trend lists as well! A delicate sweet addition to any outfit, the peplum top is edgy, feminine and can be paired with a number of different options. This top is actually on sale at ASOS right now, give it a home in your closet! On the right, I have selected a faux croc-skin skirt. Always classy, the basic leather skirt should be an item in every girl's winter wardrobe. Matched with a nice pair of boots or pumps this skirt can be comfortable and cute in any situation! This skirt is available at 'H&M' for about $30.

Another trend I am absolutely loving, is the cap-toe! These 'Vince Camuto' booties will do amazingly in my closet. The cap-toe adds an extra flair to an otherwise neutral or basic winter shoe. Booties, also classically winter-esque, are cute in any form, whether it be leather or suede! These booties are available at 'Nordstrom'.

Thank you for reading and please remain patient during our changes!
Stay Pretty!
