Invitation to Lucky Fabb Conference 2013

Special thanks to Lucky Magazine for inviting Style Life Fashion to their annual fashion and beauty conference.  For those that may not know, the Lucky Fabb Conference is a premier conference for fashion bloggers, where we network, attend workshops, and listen to keynote speakers (who just so happen to be celebrities in the industry.)

I am so honored to receive the invitation because Style Life Fashion was started only a year ago due to my love {passion} for beauty, fashion, and style.

In addition, not only have I been reading Lucky Magazine since I was a teenager but we are also excited to be one of their style contributors.


While attending the conference, I hope to expand my knowledge in the areas of photography, business, and styling.  And it doesn’t hurt that I will be in Los Angeles for a few days!

I will end this post with one of my favorite quotes by Eleanor Roosevelt,  “the future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”



Make Me Over Social hosted by Fashionably Chic Tours

Violesia Tull, from Fashionably Chic Tours hosted a beauty event titled, “Make Me Over Social.”  The event took place at Saks Fifth Avenue located in Chevy Chase, Maryland.

During the event participants had the opportunity to receive make overs from Dior Cosmeticsindulge in spa facials, and enjoy lite hors d’ oeuvres.

In addition, National Makeup Artist Jelena Marjanovie was present for the event while showing participants makeup techniques and new colors from the Dior brand.

This was a lovely event and of course I enjoyed visiting Saks Fifth Avenue.  Violesia was a great host and I look forward to attending the next event by Fashionably Chic Tours.

Polka Dot Prints: The Latest Obsession

Polka dots have become my latest fashion obsession.  There’s something about combining this pattern with a bold color or dainty accessory that makes it a great fashion look.

And polka dots (in today’s design) can be seen in a variety of hues and textures.  This pattern basically goes with anything!

To my surprise,  I was able to find a “delectable” pair of polka dot jeans (with a zipper on the side.)  I instantly gravitated towards these jeans because I have never seen a pair (of jeans) in this pattern and of course they were a great price.

At that time, I wasn’t quit sure how I would wear the jeans but I knew they were a good purchase.  Luckily, after brining them home I discovered several options for my new polka dots jeans.

For me, the most important point to remember about polka dots is that this pattern can refresh any wardrobe and be worn year round.  Whether a summer blouse, cashmere sweater, or fitted blazer, polka dots are a fashion must have.

The release of RiRi Woo will coincide with Rihanna’s Diamonds Tour concerts on the 4th May at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, where MAC will open a pop-up shop.”

Eyebrow Envy: The Secret to Having Great Eyebrows

Do you ever see individuals with perfect eyebrows and instantly get “eyebrow envy?”  Well, apparently there’s a little secret to having great eyebrows and we’re going to share it.

And it’s not enough to have a waxing treatment or receive professional threading.  Beauty gurus are sculpting their eyebrows in 5 minutes or less by using the “shading” technique.

The “shading” technique on your eyebrows can be the difference between looking like a school girl or a super model.

Ultimately, with this technique “the eyes have it” and with great eyebrows your face can stand out and look flawless.

MBFW Jill Stuart Fall 2013 Collection

At this point, we all know that Mercedes – Benz Fashion Week Fall 2013 Collections is currently in full swing.  But for those of us that aren’t in New York, we still have the opportunity to catch a few shows!

Take a look at Jill Stuart Fall 2013 Collection; this collection has a mixture of prints, textures, and lengths.  And what I like about this show, is the use of quality fabrics and well made garments.

The designer also shows us many stylish ways to wear the color “black.”  From flared skirts to key hole bodice, this collection is the definition of the word couture!
