Must Have: Mawi F/W 2013 Glitter Clutches

I usually don't like things with a lot of bling or sparkle, less is more is my motto. However, I just stumbled upon these gorgeous clutches from the Mawi London F/W 2013 Collection and they are pretty spectacular. I am so intrigued with the detail and use of colorful gemstones. While the crystal-encrusted clutches are relatively expensive, there is no denying they would make an ensemble stand out.

The clutches along with beautiful art-deco jewelry are available for pre-order on Moda Operandi now through April 8th, 2013.

What do you think of these fab clutches?

Editor's Pick~ Melting Tights by URB Clothing

On one hand, I think these Melting Tights by URB Clothing are pretty fantastic and man do I wish I had a pair when I was in Junior High in the 1980's. On the other hand, I cannot help but think, it seems as if one might have just peed glitter down their legs?

I think that if you like to shock people with your fashion these are an accessory must have for your wardrobe! I can see Ice Skaters or Roller Derby girls wearing these as a bold and flashy part of their uniforms. If anything the color combinations are quite innovative and totally fierce. The rubbery texture of the melting effect is so realistic.

Select from hues like baby blue, bubblegum pink, neon green or turquoise for colorful looks. Edgier fashionista 's will opt for black, black and white combo or even glitter melting tight designs.

 

 

 

The tights start at $50.00 and vary with selected styles.

What do you think of these fun tights? Will you be picking up a pair today?

Editor's Pick~ Touch In Sol Feel like Honey Moon Skin Base

I received a sample of Touch In Sol's, Feel Like Honey Moon Skin Base in my August GlossyBox. My skin had been breaking out so badly, like when I was a teenager and felt so dry. I hadn't changed anything in my routine, but was reluctant to try new products on my skin for fear it would only make the problem worse. However, I discovered I have a wheat allergy (gluten sensitivity) and that was causing my skin to break out. So with that out of the way I decided to give this product a try.

I love the texture of this product, it glides over your skin so smoothly like silk and smells delightful. It's a perfect primer to apply after you have finished your skincare routine before your makeup. The honey texture firms and rejuvenates your skin allowing for a better makeup application. I also like to use it at night. I have noticed that my skin is softer and more luminescent since I have started applying this twice per day.

I adore the packaging of this product too, the font is adorable!

I highly recommend this product, if you are looking for a luxe moisturizer or primer that won't dry out your skin this is the one to try.

Shop: Touch In Sol US.com; $20.00.

Give it a try and let me know what you think!

Editor's Pick~ Niks Naks Acrylic Monogram Block Necklace

Recently we saw Jessica Biel wearing a necklace that said "Justin" and Sarah Jessica Parker made the name necklace virtually iconic when her character Carrie sported one on Sex and The City. Personalized jewelry pieces really make a statement. Whether it be full names or initials, rest assured they are conversation starters.

Currently we are loving these acrylic monogrammed cutout necklaces from Niks Naks. The necklaces are available in 20 fabulous colors and you can select gold fill or a silver chain. You can select single, double and triple initials. We think the initials FWU will look really nice on a silver chain in a purple hue...just saying.

Brides think about gifting this as a keepsake for your bridesmaids, they'll appreciate your personalized touch. Purchase one of this chic necklaces for yourself with your new initials and proudly display while on your honeymoon.

Shop: Niks Naks; $58.00 (not including extra's and upgrades)
