Like with other makeup, I only occasionally use eye shadow. All of my eye shadow is now expired & barely used. This is another reason why I don’t spend $$$ on eye shadow, well, haven’t yet. So here is my new palette from Maybelline called The Nudes. The neutral shades are versatile for everyday wear including work. You can blend and mix just as easy to create anything from a subtle/soft daytime look to a more sultry finish for the evening. It stays put all day long especially over primer. If you are looking for nude shadows but don’t want to shell out $30+ then definitely try out this affordable palette. I paid $9.99 at Ulta.
There is an ever increasing number of casual workplaces popping up everywhere. Casual or dressy, you can enjoy business attire that is both fashion-forward and practical that falls in line with your job. If your work setting allows you to don casual wear, then skinny jeans are an ideal wardrobe choice for casual-chic workwear. Every fashionista that embraces jeans needs a reliable pair of skinny denims that can easily take her from work to out on the town.
I have stated before how much I adore denim jeans. Skinny and bootcut jeans happen to be my favorite styles. I enjoy wearing skinny jeans the most with high heels and sandals during spring & summer months. Oftentimes, I team my skinnies with a simple tee, blazer and a pair of heels. The right pair of skinny jeans works with almost everything in your closet.
This season have skinny jeans keep you in stylish step. NYDJ’s selection of premium jeans really caught my attention – especially their skinnies. Plus, you feel and look even slimmer in these jeans, thanks to their exclusive Lift Tuck technology that really flatters your shape. With that in mind, I have rounded up the best skinny pairs from NYDJ. Create stylish, comfortable outfits that work for you!
Ankle Jeans (Ami Supper Skinny in manhattan beach) ~ I find ankle length jeans – hitting just right above the ankle bone – the most chic. It works equally well whether worn with heels or flats. My personal shoe preference is low-heeled pumps in neutral hues such as taupe, gray or nude.
White Skinny Jeans (Sheri Skinny in optic white) ~ Don’t shy away from white denim jeans. They are just as acceptable as wearing black jeans to the office when worn with the right mix of apparel and accessories. When paired with a matching white blazer, you have a fresh suit look for springtime.
Colorful Jean Leggings (Alina Legging in rouge) ~ Let this vibrant pair of skinnies brighten up your workwear for the coming season.
Dark Jeans (Serena Legging in black) ~ Black, navy, blue or gray in dark wash is a must-have for working women.
NYDJ suggests going one size smaller due to their smart slimming technology. There are much more than jeans to be found on the site as well. Take time to browse through their workchic-worthy dresses, tops, skirt and pants to incorporate into your existing wardrobe.
It’s hard to resist a soft, cozy sweater. I’m loving the luxe appeal of the fuzzy sweater like the one below. I also like the way the simple skirt balances out the sweater. A pair of suede pumps & sparkly drop earrings give the outfit a finished look.
From buttery wool to eyelash knits, these sweaters will have you happily warm throughout spring. Go for a boxy sweater or one size up for a chic oversized effect.
Sunglasses are an essential item that I never leave the house without. They are a part of my fashion arsenal as well as a protective gear against the harsh sun rays. My latest pair is from Dharma Eyewear. If you have a fondness for eyewear and a keen sense of style, hop on over to dharmaco.com to check out their fantastic selection of both regular eyeglasses to sunglasses in a wide array of styles.
Dharma’s Golden Age sunglasses were a welcome addition to my sunglasses collection. The overall retro glam appeal was undoubtedly the best choice for me. The lightweight frame sits very comfortably while protecting my eyes from UV rays. I loved them the minute I put them on.
Oversized sunnies. They are the ultimate chic accessory in my opinion. I chose the Tortoise finish among the 3 color options. While the Indian Summer makes for perfect summer wear, the Onyx will add a nice dose of Jackie-O chicness to your everyday workwear. I’m looking forward to bright spring days to incorporate this pair into my outfits as you will see from future outfit posts.
There are plenty more styles at dharmaco.com to meet your personal needs whether they are simple reading glasses or cool aviators. Each pair offered from Dharma Eyewear does not cost more than $99. Plus, free shipping & returns for 30 days. All of the frames include a lifetime warranty as well. Dharma Eyewear will replace your frames, no matter what. Just pay $11.95 for shipping & handling.
The site offers a 3D virtual try-on feature which gives you the closest experience of you trying out the eyewear in person. It was a first for me to try out this virtual 3d mirror. The glasses appear to be larger on the face at certain angles (I’m trying out Monsoon sunglasses below) but I have to say, this virtual try-on tool is pretty cool and very easy to use.
Every eyewear shop should have this online tool for people to see which glasses or sunglasses look the best before buying. Using the live cam gives you a better idea of how the glasses look on you compared to just using a stagnant photo. Simply use your webcam to try out all your favorite pairs on the site. And see immediate results!
The brand name Dharma is synonymous to their core mission ~ offering value and good-will. While providing high quality and affordable eyewear they also donate 5% of each sale to charity in aid to those that can’t afford glasses or an eye exam. Vision is something we take for granted everyday yet there are people who can’t even get basic eye care.
I remind myself to take breaks from long hours parked on a computer in order to provide plenty of rest for my eyes. Not to mention getting an annual comprehensive eye and vision exam. I often feel empathetic towards people with poor eyesight especially blind people. I can’t even imagine a life without clear vision, literally. It’s vey humbling to see there are companies such as Dharma that demonstrate a compassion that goes beyond profit.
