2011 Obsessions: Thus Far

So I know we aren't even two weeks into the new year, but as I eagerly await my european adventures, and get to hear all about Anna's, I've begun having a few fashion and beauty obsessions. Here they are:

1. Leopard. I know leopard print has been all over the runways in the last year or so, but I am not even close to being sick of it. I love leopard in dresses, blouses, handbags, and especially shoes. I recently picked these awesome zipper wedges up from H&M, and I can't wait to pair them with tights while its still chilly, and then wear them well into summer with bare legs and feet!

2. Red lipstick. Fuschia lipstick is supposedly the new color of the season for Spring, but I have always, always stuck to the nude and glossy lip as my go-to. I've always been afraid to go bold until a recent trip to the MAC counter where the adorable makeup artist suggested a bright red. This red (Russian Red) is phenomenal. It looks good on almost anyone, and I swear it makes my teeth look whiter. Red lipstick is such a fun and unexpected way to add a pop of color to a neutral ensemble, or just make any outfit a bit edgier.  

 3.  The Row's pre-fall collection. Being a huge MaryKate and Ashley Olsen fan as is, it is expected that I love anything they design. Their Elizabeth and James line is fantastic, but there is something so androgynously sexy about this Pre-Fall collection that I think is really wearable, chic and very Olsen-esque.

4. Emily from Cupcakes and Cashmere. ( Not only does Emily share a fantastic name with MWAH, but she manages to create an adorable, readable, addictive blog that showcases her effortless style, along with her hobby of cooking and baking. She includes fun and easy recipes, along with her current fashion obsessions and some daily outfit posts. LOVE her!
