Platinum And Pearl, Lafayette 148 New York

Platinum and Pearl, what a brilliant combination.

I wasn’t imagining jewels as much as colours. The mix of creamy pearl shades alongside the softest hint of grey. Not really grey, nor silver but somewhere in the middle.

Berry Lipstick Crush

Berry Lipstick Crush



I have a crush on berry lipstick.


A small deviation away from the reds, just as bold only different.

These days the eyes work better with less and the lips are happier with more.

The Sleek Blowout

The Sleek Blowout



If New York Fashion Week is any indication it would seem that the sleek blowout is back.


Hair was luxurious, chic, shiny, natural and slick.


The only ripples on the runway were a few strategically placed, almost invisible, waves cascading down the back of the longer locks.


With side partings and shoulder length plus, the models looked elegant and for once, the hair style is wearable.
