why do these 6 trends exist?

Let’s be honest, some trends we love, and just cannot get enough of and others we loathe and wonder why anyone thought it was a good idea. Sometimes, my mind changes though. For one, I used to hate skinny jeans and peep toe pumps as a teenager. I also couldn’t understand why anyone thought leggings were suitable bottoms. Today, I own countless pairs of skinny jeans and somewhere in my  college partying life I owned quite a few pairs of peep toe pumps as well. And if you ask anyone that knows me personally, I own multiple pairs of leggings, and I find them to be extremely comfortable, and think they offer a wide range of motion.

    • Matching sets –

      from thefashionspot.com
      at the beginning of this trend season I thought that matching sets were cute. Who wouldn’t love to wear high-waist paints with a flowing crop top in the same print? Now, I am so over it. After seeing pictures of almost ALL of the attendees at a soca event in varying palm and floral prints I definitely think I have seen every single fast fashion version of matching sets and they should all be burnt (except this is bad for the environment, a waste of fabric, and isn’t good sustainable fashion practice but you get my point.

Currently Coveting: Lucite and Transparencies

While perusing Pinterest, I came across some lucite arm candy and fell for all of the bracelets. This sent me down a hole of searching for lucite jewelry – collars, earrings, and bangles.

I found lots more pieces that I liked but it’s tough trying to make a collage of clear things.

Outfit Post: Scalloped Shift

I worked on a series of a few dresses falling into a shift dress line and I will slowly be sharing each one with you. In case you didn’t know, the shift dress has a pretty basic shape and a distinct set of characteristics. Shift dresses are characterized by a classic silhouette usually being sleeveless, having no defined waist, and stopping about the knee. They definitely make for the perfect mini and are very feminine.

Beauty: Eyeliner, a comparison

So for the life of me I just cannot use a pencil or pen eyeliner to line my top eyelid. It doesn’t matter if it’s a felt tip, a this, that, or the other, it just doesn’t work. As a matter of fact, I can only use a pencil eyeliner on my lower waterline and it has to be a soft tip. As you can see, make-up is definitely not one of my strong points.

If you’ve noticed, sometimes I do rock a pretty killer cat eye (with the flick on the side) – and so I have been complimented (this is to let you know that this isn’t just my opinion)  and I do this using a gel liner in the pot with a brush.

So, much like I tried a couple of different mascaras which you can read about here, I went in search of the best gel pot eyeliner.

The Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner is where it all began. It is a drug store brand, one of many that I have tried (but this was 7+ years ago which is why the others are not included in this review) and it was definitely the best of them all. It comes with a brush that is super easy to use and has been one of my Read More
