Maxi

Trend of the summer? The boho-inspired maxi dress! Its sleek, simple shape is ultra feminine and elegant. Choose a maxi with bold, interesting patterns or cutouts to add some flair to the style.

Not into the floor-length style? High/low skirts are a great alternative to show off a little leg but still maintain that elegant allure. Dress it up even more with sheer, colorful fabrics!

Either one of these styles is perfect for hot summer days and cool summer nights!

Feather Extensions

The hottest hair trend right now is FEATHERS! First it was feather headbands and hair clips…



Now this trend has graduated to feather extensions! The best ones are made of real bird feathers (usually roosters). I have a few in my hair right now. They’re fun and edgy but blend subtly into my dark layers.

You can go with the striped, natural colored feathers or add some bright colors like pink or blue if you’re feeling a little bold. I got mine done by a vendor at Boonstock music festival but you can purchase them from most salons and your hairdresser will put them in for you. They have little metal clips that fasten onto the hair and last for up to 8 weeks!

Have fun with this playful, avian-inspired accessory!

Hot Lips

Lips are meant to be accentuated! Simply slap on some lip colour to highlight your best natural accessory – your lips! Various hues of lip color can be used to create the perfect, classic look and make you feel ultra-chic. There are quite a few brands to choose from to achieve this bold, mysterious look. Here are a few of my faves…

The “Just Bitten” line by Revlon works wonders in creating a lasting lip color. Lip stains create a matte finish but require fewer touch-ups resulting in a defined, dark look that is easy to maintain.

Want to create a luscious, glossy look? The “Lipglass” collection by MAC is the best way to do this! They have an abundance of bright, rich hues to choose from. My personal favourite is called “pink poodle”. Want to plump up your pucker while adding a tint of color? I suggest the “Plushglass” collection by MAC to get that bee-stung look sans botox.

Whether you decide to go with a deep blood red, a bright cherry hue or a passionate purple tinge, lip color should be treated as an accessory. A way to accentuate even the simplest of outfits. A bold lip color combined with subtle eyes creates a timeless look that personifies beauty.

So paint on a little rouge to draw some attention to those HOT LIPS of yours!
