My Fantasy Fashion And Beauty Wants For Spring

Now that the warmer weather seems to be kicking into full force, I have the spring bug!!  And with a new season comes new things I want to update my home/wardrobe/closet/makeup with.  A girl can't live on fall/winter 2010 items with this new warmer weather can she??! Of course not!!

Here are a few things I'm lusting after for this Spring.  Granted, most of these items are out of my reach (okay, budget) but I'm a girl who likes to dream big!!  Better to dream big than to not dream at all right?!

My Fantasy Bathroom.  First of all it's got all the colors of my JennySue Makeup business logo-shown above- in it (black/white/hot pink).  And since I spend a whole lotta time in my bathroom doing what I do best- applying makeup, I think a lavish bathroom with lots of windows and natural light would be perfect!!

My Fantasy Shoes.  These from Lanvin are the perfect combination of high platforms (makes your legs look longer and leaner- what more could you ask for?) and shiny bright pink (again, one of my signature colors!) and patent leather.  These would be the perfect accessory to any dull outfit- especially with the $850 price tag.  And the cork sole screams spring material.

My Fantasy Handbag.  Marc Jacobs knows how to do bags, and this one in a vibrant red snake skin ($285) couldn't be more perfect...can you tell I'm loving lots of color??!!  I like the two strap option- shorter or being able to be thrown on like a messenger bag.  I do have 3 kids, so hands free would be nice.

My Fantasy Cocktail Ring.  This multi-colored pink opal cocktail ring is by Irene Neuwirth and I found it on the Barney's website for a cool 7 grand.  Yep, this is what you call a fantasy!!  But this thing would go with everything in my closet- and even if it didn't, I'd wear it anyway;-)

My Fantasy Spring Makeup look.  Okay, so this one doesn't have to be a fantasy, bc makeup is cheaper than the rest of these things and is the easiest to copy.  Minka Kelly has been looking so beautiful these days so I just had to try and recreate this warm chic makeup look she is sporting.  Her skin is ridiculous- in a good way- and is a fantasy most women would dream of having!!

So this is me doing my best Minka impression and many views of how I created her look with products used listed at bottom.

Here are the products that got me this look:
Too Faced Natural Eye Collection- Heaven (all over), Honey Pot (crease), and Nude Beach (lashline to crease and in tear duct area) used.
Cover Girl Liquiline Blast eyeliner in brown
L'Oreal Voluminous mascara in black
L'Oreal True Match foundation in N3
Estee Lauder blush in Tender Petal
Too Faced Snow Bunny Bronzer
Lancome Juicy Tubes in Simmer
Palladio lip stain in rose

So what are your fantasy spring wants??

I really love your look! It's a doppelganger of Minka Kelly's look. Love your dream bathroom, as well. Natural lightning rules!

Yeah! I'm so excited - I've had this kit since spring and been playing around with different looks, now you've given me another great one to try. My daughters (11 almost 12 and 15 constantly wear colors from this kit - I will need to start hiding my makeup!).
You do a great job and your photography is great too.
Thanks again for a fresh idea.
BTW - I am obsessed with Bobbi Brown's gel eyeliners. Do you like them or have you found something better?

Thanks Gidget, I feel like my photography could always be better but thanks for the compliment! I'd love to purchase a new camera, but my canon will have to do for now;-) I have not used BB's gel liners-my fave is the cover girl liquiline right now or stila's kajal liners which are super soft!

Gidget said...

JennySue - you will LOVE BB gel eyeliner - the stuff is amazing. I have mine in shimmering chocolate, I really can't recommend it enough. The BB brush that goes with it is expensive, but once you make the initial investment it's well worth it.
