MAKE-UP SESSIONS

makeupMAKE-UP CASES >>  1. DKNY  |  2. COACH  |  3. LOUIS VUITTON  |  4. FENDI  |  5. 3.1 PHILLIP LIM  |  6. MARC BY MARC JACOBS

I was lucky enough to find an AMAZING Louis Vuitton Make-Up case at a vintage store in Amsterdam last year, but due to my constant travels and my constantly overflowing makeup collection, I have no space in it anymore. I have been searching for a second case that “matches” -in a very contrasting way- with the one I already own, but I still can’t make my mind up. Which one would you go for?

How to shop a sale

The sales! They’re here!

Ok, so it’s kind of a crazy time to shop but we’ve been holding out for them here in the Studio. For some things, we’re happy to pay full price (the necessities and really really want that right now items) but, for others, we’ve been waiting until the price dropped. One thing all of us in the Studio agree on is that you need to approach sale shopping in the right way. Here are some of our tips:

1. Have An Objective
Know exactly what you’re looking for — it’s best to go in there with a plan, or else you’re just going to be distracted by all of the shiny things at great prices. You might go in there needing new jeans and end up with clutch bag #24. Best to avoid that.

2. Research Is Key
Spend the extra five minutes online working out where the best discount is because, even though one store might have that jacket for 50% off, another might have taken it down by 70%. Now you can also afford that pair of sneakers.

3. Dress for Success
For a day of shopping (real shopping, we’re talking about here), wear clothes that are easy to get on and off. A pair of lace up boots with a latex jumpsuit will not be convenient to slip in and out of, and might seem a little odd in some stores (incase you were wondering).

4. Eyes On the Prize
Be determined. Spend the time finding something you would have actually bought at full price because you love it so much. That way, it feels like a real bargain rather than a decent deal. Got it?

5. Think Ahead!
Now is the time to buy that coat for next year. Again, try not to get distracted by those amazing pumps or that dress that has you dreaming of a beach just because it’s snowing outside. We know it’s hard, but we have faith in you.

Happy shopping! :)

Uncommon Matters

Every day I look at my jewelry collection and think “enough is enough!” before almost immediately falling for some new, shiny thing. It’s becoming a problem.

This week, I’m all about this circle bracelet by Uncommon Matters. It merges some of my greatest loves together: circles (an appreciation inspired by Louis Kahn), gold, and… jewelry. On the wrist, it looks so delicate and clean but it also just looks beautiful as a standalone object on the bedside table.

Definitely a new favorite come spring, once the weather’s warm enough for sleeves rolled up.

Circle bracelet, Uncommon Matters.

New Year, New Bag

At the beginning of each year, I like to take stock of the essentials in my life.

What made it through another year in perfect condition, and what needs to be repaired or replaced? It’s definitely about time I added another essential bag to my 2015 wish list. I have two requisites for an essential bag: it must coordinate seamlessly with my day-to-day wardrobe and fit my other essentials (phone, wallet, book, makeup case, headphones) with ease. Oh, and it has to be comfortable.

This Saint Laurent is so chic, a great color (but not standard black!) and is just the right size…

What essentials are you replacing this year?

The second most wonderful time of the year is of course the sale, you get me right? I know you all agree…
I have been browsing and since I’ve become quite picky when I shop, I literally think about buying something for days and days before I actually go for it. Most of the times I end up regretting waiting so long, because by the time I make up my mind the item is obviously gone in my size…

Surf!

Ok, this time it’s serious — I’ve signed up for surfing classes!!! Here I go!!
I’m packing my bags for Costa Rica right now, where I’ll be spending New Year’s on the beach trying to climb onto my surfboard. I have a feeling my pro surfer girl friends are going to laugh at me. But hey, you have to start somewhere, right?

And besides, no one can ever take away how much fun it was to go “surf” shopping hahaha. Here are the first few things I’m putting into my suitcase. Ok, maybe I won’t be waxing my board after one lesson, but it’s really pretty, don’t you think?

HOT WINTER

H1 H6H8H2 H5 H3 H4LINGERIE  >>  Hunkemoller’s Christmas Collection 

I am kind of hooked with lingerie for the past year which I find very ironic, considering I never used to pay attention to it before. I would probably wear mismatched lingerie all the time and end up with thinking: “Did I seriously dress in the dark?!”. Now I have completely been converted, its not even for the sexy factor of the actual lingerie being “seen”, but knowing you are wearing really beautiful lingerie underneath is a very empowering thought and yeah, sexy too, why not.

How do you feel about lingerie? Do you pay attention to it or do you also get dressed in the dark? :P

Do you shop online?

I do… all the time.

I love to browse all of my favorite stores simultaneously, each with their own dedicated tab (that’s a type A personality shining through), and search for exactly what I need. It’s easier to have an objective, to shop with a purpose. When I go real-life shopping, I’m always distracted by the shiniest new thing in the store. Online shopping is so convenient and you get to try everything on in the luxury of your own home (the best!), and see what your potential new purchase looks like with everything in your wardrobe — not just what you wore out shopping that day.

But I didn’t always like shopping online. It was a lot of hit and miss for me, but I finally figured it out. Here are the rules that I live online shop by:

1. Preference brands you already own and know over new ones.
Sure, it’s always exciting to try out new labels but it’s more difficult to gauge the size. For example, I know Prada shoes are quite narrow but I have a wider foot. I’ll always go up half a size if purchasing online.

2. Check the sizing chart!
If you don’t know the label inside and out, this is the best online tool you’ve got. Companies are pretty good at staying true to what they include on their sizing chart. If they don’t have one just make a realistic judgement. I have friends who optimistically order too small and know others who order waaaay too big. Think about what size you normally pick up when you go to a store and think about whether you normally get it right. If not, change the size before ordering.

3. Know if the website will accept returns, and under what conditions.
Basically, don’t drop all of your savings on the Céline leather pants unless you know you’re safe if it doesn’t work out. This might be the most important one. I generally don’t order clothing online unless I know I can get an undisputed refund. If I’m getting something on final sale, I’m always willing to take the risk so I’m not sorely disappointed.

4. Think about shipping costs.
This can be a scary surprise, especially on sites where it varies by item such as eBay! Check what kind of shipping fee there might be if you want to make a return, too.

5. Make general searches.
You might shop at one store in real-life because you know it well, it’s close to your home and the décor is beautiful and inviting. Online, find what you like but then make a general search on google. You never know, the same thing could be on sale for 40% off elsewhere — could be your lucky day.

Do you shop online? What are your magic rules?
