Spring 2016 – NARS Nouvelle Vogue

The colors are generally pretty soft and toned-down, pairing dusty rose and beige with a splash of cool mint and rich blue for a modern sophisticated look.

Per NARS:

“The new wave of chic. Seasonal shades suit up for resort mode with high-sun and high-style.

For Spring 2016, NARS debuts a fresh and modern mix of seasonal shades and innovative textures for eyes, cheeks and lips. Orchid blush radiates from a natural, matte complexion and lips captivate in shimmering apricot, rose and mulled wine. Eyes mesmerize in icy mint, matte beige and bronzed rose tones paired with a bold, winged liner. The must-have of the season: Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow in a sumptuous, versatile spectrum that can be applied dry for a sophisticated sheer effect, or wet for a dramatic, high-shine finish.”

The Collection will include:

DUAL-INTENSITY EYESHADOW

  • Tarvos Icy mint

Wheels & Dollbaby Le Boudoir

A sophisticated-but-playful “mini collection” from Wheels & Dollbaby is now available on their site!  

Le Boudoir features romantic, lingerie-inspired silhouettes, with “French jewelry box inspired trims and fabrics.”  Delicate gathering, slim velvets, vintage lace and organza ribbon are just some of the glamour details on these designs.

Shapes are very much in the “curve-hugging” vein, featuring W&D’s well-known slim pencil skirt lines, stripy tops, and sexy full sleeves.

Colors for this collection are black and pink, pairing perfectly with the elegant-but-sexy shaping of the pieces.  Slightly boudoir…incredibly “noir,” I absolutely LOVE the looks.

D&G’s Rainbow Lace

I not only love that Dolce & Gabbana’s is doing Taormina lace…which can be everything from haute, to edge to elegant, to sexy rock ‘n’ roll…but that they are offering so many gorgeous (and WEARABLE!) shades!  

They could go with an evening gown, but then who wants to compete?!  

If you are feeling edgy, wear them with light-colored denim and a tee (rock royalty?!)

More professional?  Pair them with tapered khaki pants for the office

Or toss them on with an all-black, evening-out ensemble to jazz things up with a jolt of vibrant color. 

These lovely ladies are bedecked with large-scale brooches, sporting “bright bezels” – “they’re so happy!” as my mother would say.  

Decadent, absolutely.  

Show-stopping, 100%.  

And SO much fun. 😀

I find the colors to be right on point – perfect, representative shades of each color group. The array of nudes – from deeper, to pink-hued, to cream – is stunning, and will work on a variety of skin tones.  Black is a must-have, of course (you can choose from a variety of heel heights, by the way, adding to Dolce’s points!)

There’s also a true, blue-based red that’s divine, fiery orange, watery teal and powder blue… All just beautiful.

Emerald and cobalt are also accounted for, as well as a golden yellow, bright red, peach, and regal purple.  

The colors, to me, are what really make this line perfection – I don’t ordinarily wear color on my feet, but these are such statement shoes that stepping out (no pun – honestly! – intended) is absolutely warranted.
