December Hits/Misses, and Holiday Faves

I hadn’t done a Product Hit or Miss video in awhile so I thought since it is the end of the year I thought it would be great to do one. Also since it’s the holiday season, I included some of my wonderful Holiday Faves. Hope you enjoy the video and make sure to always subscribe to my youtube channel if you haven’t already and click like on this video as well please. Thank you everyone! Happy Holidays!

Glittery Gold Dress by Sonja Morgan

A lot of you know that I love the show, Real Housewives of New York on Bravo. It’s one of my guilty pleasures and I recently wrote an article and review about one of my favorite ladies, Bethenny Frankel. There is also another New York housewife favorite of mine, Sonja Morgan. I love her on the show and she came out with a fabulous collection a few years ago. She is all about luxury and wanted to design clothes that are luxurious yet affordable and she did just that. I love her style and recently took photos in my first item I bought from her which is a super gorgeous and fabulous gold glitter dress. It’s perfect for the holiday season and I had first seen it when Sonja wore it on the housewives’ last reunion. It fits perfectly and the sequin and lace pattern definitely have a vintage Hollywood glam feeling to it while the turtleneck mini dress cut has a more modern look to it. I love wearing this dress and how it makes me feel which I think is the most important thing about fashion.

There is such a “wow” factor about this dress that I wanted to change up my makeup a bit. I kept my signature wings but did a more nude and natural look which combined with the dress and my shimmery shell nude heels, made my husband very happy. 

I love the photos I took in this beautiful “reunion” dress. To see Sonja Morgan’s collection, go to http:/sonjabysonjamorgan as well as http://www.sonjamorganonline.com. I really love this dress and would wear it almost every day if I could. It’s the perfect dress for the holidays.

Gothic Halloween Beauty Photoshoot

I’ve been enjoying doing my spooky October posts and when my gal Sarah Mushenheim (lifewithlilred) asked to do a Halloween collaboration post, I was all too happy. Anything that has to do with Halloween makes me happy. Stay tuned for Sarah’s Halloween post coming soon as well.

   The second photoshoot I did after my “Mrs. Freddy Krueger” was more of a “Spooky Sex Kitten” shoot with my custom-made vinyl cork screw boots, a black criss cross mini dress, and my sexy “bedroom wave” wig, (which by the way, I loved how I looked and wished my hair actually looked like that especially with that particular hair cut. We rotated taking both color and black and white/monochrome photographs. With my hair style and the dark makeup, I almost felt like a French or silent movie actress. I was felt very confident shooting yesterday which made it that more fun.

   Since I wasn’t doing a typical Halloween shoot where you just dress up in any costume and stand there,  I came up with the idea to utilize my Halloween decorations and props in each photo. I thought the juxtaposition would look really cool and give the pictures a spooky and edgy but beautiful look. Here is my GOTHIC HALLOWEEN BEAUTY set. Hope you enjoy my photos and post and comment down below about what some of your favorite costumes have been.

Mrs. Freddy Krueger

   This past Sunday, I did a photo shoot inspired by my favorite horror movie character, Freddy Krueger. If you’ve known me for awhile and/or followed my site here, you already know how much I love Robert Engund aka Freddy Krueger and that I have one of the autographed gloves from the movie series, and that I’ve dressed up like him and done shoots inspired by him many times. This Freddy Krueger shoot however was different.

   This shoot is a collaboration with my good friend Haley Murin. If you don’t remember, Haley is one of the owners and artists of Street Trash Art along with her talented fiance’ Dustin Tyler that made by amazing Nightmare on Elm Street hoodie that I rocked in San Francisco. We traded Freddy hoodies. Haley and I don’t live close which is really unfortunate but I believe we are definitely psychically linked because we both happened to acquire the exact same pair of Nightmare on Elm Street socks. I thought that it was funny and cool that we have such similar taste that I thought taking photos of us in our Freddy gear would be a cool and fun idea…. and I was right.

  I donned a black and burgundy wig and did a black glittery smoky eye look topped with my new black and orange glitter lipstick. I also had my collectible Freddy Krueger bronze mold also from the movie as a prop to show off. The weather is started to finally cool down by me so taking hoodie photos with my matching knee socks outside without sweating to death was really nice.

   I really enjoyed doing this shoot and I can’t wait to see Haley’s pictures which I will post side by side soon. She is such a sweet and cool person and I’m very glad I met and have become friends with her.

   Hope you enjoy my photos. Let me know below. Who are your favorite horror characters? What are your favorite horror films?

Fall Fashion Finesse

  Hello everyone. My first Autumn fashion article is a collaboration with one of my favorite girlfriends who runs “LifewithLilRed” aka the wonderful Sarah Mushenheim who I’ve done many  collaborations with, nominated eachother for blog awards, and hopefully will have her feature interview on my site too. 

  So for our latest collab, we can up with the idea for fall fashion looks we like. Now before you look at these, remember I live in Southern Californian so it’s not super cold here yet. But my two outfits I did a shoot with can be layered for when it gets really cold and into winter. For example, my two looks in a warm dress and the other one consists of shorts but always feel free to adding stockings, long socks like I do, etc. layering is always a good thing. 

First Look:

My first fashion look is a staple for me every time it’s this season. I love my red and blue long flannel dress and I love wearing it with shorts and some heavy thigh high socks. I love boots so I’m showing my black short boots with gold sharp studs on them and a gold heel. I rocked my leather shorts which can keep me warm because of the leather and ended this look with a cool rock and roll top underneath my flannel and my music jewelry cause music is life! Enjoy look number one.

Second Look:

My second look I’ve been wanting to show for awhile is my sexy new hoodie dress. It’s the Vixxsin Black Bettie Page zipper dress which comes attached with a beautiful fitted fur hoodie. The detailing on the back is genius and definitely my style or all my eclectic taste such as pinup, rock & roll and a touch of goth. I paired this dress with my thigh high boots which are the sexiest thigh boots I’ve ever owned. But like I said in my first look, you can layer stockings under the boots or if it really cold by you, wearing thick or thermal leggings. Get created! I say that a lot in my articles but it’s true and will save you a lot of money. Thank you for reading this and enjoy my second set.
