HOW TO WEAR: OFF THE SHOULDER TOPS IN WINTER

posted by Elshane on Dec 8 2016, under Fashion

The comeback of the white T-shirt has been serving the greater good for women's closets for months now. Case in point? The amazing The Royal Native Zebra off the shoulder top that I recently got and was itching to wear. These days, anything layered with a white T-shirt underneath is a recipe for success.

It made me so happy to break out my off the shoulder top in mid-winter, that I couldn't help but kick my heels up, grab my baby girl, and do a little dance!

{Score any Zebra print from The Royal Native for 20% off right now by using the code ZEBRA at checkout! That makes this top a cool $61.}

A STROLLER ON THE GO

posted by Elshane on Dec 6 2016, under Baby/Motherhood

They grow so fast! But it keeps getting better...

Now that Sunday is so mobile and active at her ripe age of 8 months, we love taking her everywhere with us on the weekends. I used to lug my 25 lb stroller everywhere I went-- the schlepping, OMG! Break it down, throw sorry I mean use all my arm strength possible to jam it in the back of my trunk, put it back together, narrowly squeeze through crowds with my wide load... I think you get the idea.

There's a time and place for the big mama stroller-- but when you're on the go on the weekends, something ultra light, foldable, thin and portable is just what the...Pediatrician ordered. ;) 

A friend recommended Joovy as her go-to "umbrella stroller" brand. (Get it? It folds up on the go like an umbrella.) I've been loving the accessibility of it, and I know Sunday feels pretty fly in it, as well!

I mean, really though. What does she have to complain about? The girl has a multiple car garage for herself. We're doing just fine.

BOLD LIPS THIS WINTER

posted by Elshane on Dec 1 2016, under Beauty

Cue: WINTER!

When a golden tan isn't at your fingertips, your beauty routine has to rely less on the natural glow, and more on a statement punch. A bold lip for winter is a classic beauty hack used by celebrity makeup artists and taste makers worldwide. Who knew that two swipes of a colored stick could be considered so "genius"? 

I've laid out my five favorite lip colors for winter, from the most trusted lipstick brands in the game. Simple, affordable, and stylish, these colors are guaranteed to elevate your winter style!

Above is the Urban Decay Sheer Shame. This stick is a mixed berry hue with a bit of shine-- it's juicy and sultry. 

Reds are a delicate subject-- there are the orangey reds (like above), and the blue-ish reds (like below). It's beneficial to have both in your makeup drawer!

Above is Laura Geller's Big Apple Red. It's shiny and bright and ultra moisturizing.

Now here's a blue-ish red by NARS called Dragon Girl. This stick is a fan favorite and an Elshane's World ultra-fav. If you don't own it-- I'm confused. What are you waiting for? It's matte, dry, and long lasting. It looks good on absolutely, positively everyone!

Milani makes the most luxurious, affordable makeup in the game. This purple berry hue, called 65, is rich enough to be the stand-alone statement to your day or evening's outfit. It's one of those colors that you should expect to get stopped on the street for-- the compliments keep coming!

And then there's that perfect nude that is a makeup drawer must. For the times when you go heavy on the eyes, but need a lip to finish the look. Flower's Naked Petal will give you just that-- all for a shocking $7!

EL IN WONDERLAND

posted by Elshane on Nov 28 2016, under Fashion

This dress is reversible, let's start with that.

I don't think I've ever owned a great reversible item before. My husband, who makes clothing for stores like Walmart, Sears, Target, etc, was always trying to sell me on his men's reversible shorts idea. I was always like, "Ehhh, next idea please," time after time. But now, I think he might be on to something...

This dress excites me because I feel like I have two dresses in one- -and they both serve very different purposes. The orange snow leopard is an obvious nod to my everyday colorful life, but the black --almost menswear tie- inspired -- printed dress is perfect for a quick night out. 

Kenzo x H&M did it-- they mastered the two-fer! I'm sold. Literally. Sold.

SUITING TWO STEP

posted by Elshane on Nov 18 2016, under Fashion

I will never forget when I fell in love with chic suiting. It was 2006 and I was the public relations assistant at Diane von Furstenberg headquarters in NYC. Like a scene from Devil Wears Prada, the hallways reeked of female power. These women were everything I dreamed of becoming-- smart boss lady boo-boos who commanded any room they entered. 

And what did they all wear? Chic, fashionable suits. Not your average Theory interview suit, I'm talking bouclés, rouging, pintucking, and flirty silhouetted suits. The kinds you saw at Paris Fashion Week but you didn't know really existed in real life. Of course, many were made by DVF herself. 

Fast forward 10 years, a superhuman brand of fashionable boss lady suiting emerges, Argent. And here, my fellow fembots, all of my suiting dreams have come true.

WHITE ON WHITE

posted by Elshane on Nov 16 2016, under Fashion

It's rare to see me without a rainbow of colors.

So when I steer in the other direction, I go all-in. Case in point? White on white on white. Cream on white on winter white on beige on tan on khaki. However you want to label it.

I've always been a huge fan of monochromatic dressing. I've taken it to the extremes of tonal pinks, and then back to basics with creams. It works every.single.time. 

It's the easiest fashion tip for anyone trying to push the envelope. Take it tonal and don't turn back!

IN BLING WE SEARCH

posted by Elshane on Nov 11 2016, under Fashion

So, yeah, I like bling. I like when it blings in blue and yellow and green and gold. That's cue for sapphires, yellow diamonds, emeralds, and karats, oh my! And sometimes I want to treat myself... or steer a certain significant other over the rainbow into the pot of gold. {Wink, wink to husbands everywhere!}

Until recently, I've found it very difficult to shop the internet for fine jewelry. I've checked websites like ShopBop, Barneys, and Saks, but I find their fine jewelry selections to be stale, uninspiring, and absurdly expensive. Shopping for fine jewelry seemed to be an outdated process.

Until now.

 

Swoonery is a luxury e-commerce site that has innovated the fine jewelry shopping experience. It showcases unique pieces by both established brands and up-and-comers that you won't find at your neighborhood jeweler. Also, they pride themselves on their costumer service aspect, making it a priority to get to know you as a consumer to make tailored jewelry recommendations depending on your taste and desires.

They're basically like your family's new "go-to jewelry guy", except you don't have to buzz through two black gates to get inside. They're just a mouse click away...
