July Beautified

I hate to make another one of those “beauty obsessions” posts (I’m sure you see plenty) but I’ve been trying a lot of new products lately and I haven’t done a beauty post in a while, so I thought I’d give it a go. This isn’t necessarily a summer beauty feature (these products are great now as well as year round) but because it’s July which means summer is in full swing (although that’s questionable in Chicago) it’s time to get your July beautified.

What Why Where: Freak Show

Have a Stylish Earth Day

You know how you wake up on January 1 and feel like you’re really going to commit to your new years resolutions this year (post-hangover of course)?

Nothing to be ashamed of. I drive a 2002 Toyota 4Runner…and trust me, it ain’t no Prius.

So to celebrate this wonderful holiday, I thought the Chanel Fall 2013 globe clutch would be the perfect image to get us started. After all, it is Karl’s world…and we’re all just living in it.

ChiCityFashion x Ginger + Liz Duos

With a nailpolish obsession like mine, it’s too stressful to just pick out ONE color for all TEN nails. With an ever-growing nailpolish collection + a consistent #ManiMonday update on Instagram I decided a 2 color minimum will be put in place (and that’s a 2 color minimum per hand by the way). And then the Ginger + Liz duos were born…
