Hey my loves! Let’s start the year off right with some of my top picks in fashion, hair, and beauty for the month of January!

Pictures129Many stores are releasing their spring clothes, but we all know that it doesn’t get warm until the end of April/May. March feels like winter to me so I will still be wearing my sweaters and riding boots which is why these are my picks for January. I love the print on the Fair Isle Sweater from Forever 21 and I was sold on these riding boots with the chain detail and mixed textures. You can never go wrong with a satchel bag, and this Rachel Zoe bag is sleek and chic! A statement necklace can glam up any look this can even be paired with the pink cable knit sweater. Lastly, the CoverGirl Blast FlipStick Duo in Flashy is one of my favorite lipsticks. It’s a highly pigmented purple and I use the pink for a little ombre look. It is long lasting and even acts as a lipstain!

About the company and designer (Source)

“I began my accessories line in July 2008, collaborating with Fitzrovia Designs. The company have an extensive knowledge of luxury accessories which has been a great reference point for me. This proved a valuable tool in nurturing and developing my designs from the initial concept to the end product.

My design philosophy has always centered on creating a product that is directional without compromising on quality and functionality. Each collection is a reflection of my personal style. I have a variety of influences, from my British heritage to my love of 70’s rock music and their iconic characters.

The collection has grown and developed to reflect the consumer and myself over the seasons, whilst maintaining a consistent vintage theme.

I’m excited to announce my 9th season, Autumn/Winter 2012 has some gorgeous statement detailing that I adore and I hope you will too.”

I love coming across little gems such as Meredith Wendell on the internet. I was not familiar with the designer/brand but I happened to see some amazing handbags featured on a particular website. I immediately began to do my research on Meredith Wendell and instantly fell in love. With spring lines being placed in the stores and the warmer temps being a few months away I was plotting on how I could get my hand on one of these bags from the 2013 cruise collection.

“Meredith Wendell, founded in 2008 by designers Meredith and Wendell German, is a New York based resort-inspired accessories brand, combining unique color and sporty American style.

The creative influence of Meredith Wendell stems from Meredith’s childhood. Raised by her father and grandparents in and around the vibrant Dorothy Draper designed interiors of West Virginia’s Greenbrier Hotel, Meredith was exposed to a variety of design aesthetics, personalities and generations.

This aesthetic has been captured during their collaborations with photographers Frederike Helwig and Chris Brooks and stylist Beth Fenton, shooting seasonal look-books at The Greenbrier, their apartment and Chapel Beach Club. With the inception of her own company, Meredith has drawn on her colorful background, always keeping in mind the value of her family heritage.

Meredith Wendell is sold in boutiques world wide and is featured regularly in domestic and international publications ranging from Vogue to the Wall Street Journal Magazine.” Source
