Mario Testino’s 70’s inspired shoot for T-Swift!

I am not the biggest Taylor Swift fan but there is NO doubt that she looks absolutely stunning on the February cover of Vogue Magazine.  A little cut of the bangs…and WOW!  Mario Testino, a highly sought after fashion photographer and genius behind-the-lens, snapped these 70’s and 80’s inspired photos channeling  rocker Stevie Nicks.  If you are a fan of photography, fashion or not, it is worth looking at his other memorable collections of photographs.

Ringing in the BIG 2012!

Did you survive NYE?  I’m finally back from Florida and back on posting so I thought I would share some pictures from my New Years in Chicago.  Sparkles and Glitter should be a staple in your wardrobe…even if it’s not New Years!  Loving the mix of  glitter, bold colors and statement jewelry pieces.  These girls SHINED!

My Look: Dress from Dillards, blazer from GAP, shoes from ZARA(needed that extra pop of color)

Makeup: Smoky eye with rosy lips
