Step into Fall...The Oxford Way

Hello fabs!

School is right around the corner and so is…FALL! So we’ve gotta prepare! And by prepare I mean UPDATE our summer wardobes!

Step 1: BUY OXFORD SHOES!

Pair them with shorts,an oversized button down and a cute headband! (I’m actually wearing that RIGHT NOW) I’ll specify: Black torn denim shorts, Oversized denim buttondown, gold ALDO oxfords,and teal flower earrings!

They’re perf for tons of ocassions! You can dress them up, as well as dress them down! Hope you fabs choose to invest in them!

Stay Fab,

Sorority Recruitment: FABoosh Outfit Guide!

Ciao Chicas!

Many of you who are going to universities in the fall may be going through recruitment AKA rush! During rush, you go through a series of days and outfits and you OBVI have to look your best! Few tips and a COMPLETE style guide for a faboosh recruitment!

Day 1: Casual Day

Pair a cute tank or v-neck with khaki shorts. A shirt should be given to you this day so don’t worry too much about the top you wear! Try these cute Sseko sandals, you can read more about them in my previous post! Cute sperrys, TOMS, Havaianas, or Tory Burch slingbacks should do the trick!  Make sure to wear waterproof make-up, not that you’ll be crying, but it’ll most likely be hot && you’ve gotta be prepared for whatever! The MAC paints is UH-MAY-ZING! you put it on your lids as a base, and your top liner, and eyeshadow stay on ALL DAY! && you can’t forget the NARS orgasm/laguna! It’s a must in any fabulous girls’ make up bag! Perfect for any skin tone! 

Day 2 is a bit more formal than casual , but def not the most formal. Stick with pairing skirts and cute tops, add some wedges and you’re golden ;) Don’t forget the accessories. Shift towards the more simple, yet elegant accessories i.e.David Yurman chain bracelet, Tiffany&co bracelet, Lilly Pulitzer accessories or even cute chunky anthropologie jewelry!

So we’re moving up on the dressiness, but we’re still trying to keep it a bit caj! A good summery dress paired with pumps for a more serious look is perfect for this day! Stick to eye-popping studs for the earrings, and simple, yet classy bracelets such as pearls and diamonds. For your makeup, do a daytime smokey eye look (the gold/beige on inner lid, and a dark-brown on outer-lid)

This is where things get SPICY! A cute cocktail dress is perf for this day! Stay away from poofy glittery dresses, they scream TACKY PROM! Go more over to the silky textured dresses, or a dress with a nice back cutout! Satin pumps are always a plus, or try a strappy bootie! For your make up, add a bit of glitz with this Urban Decay Midnight Cowboy (my personal fave). UD make-up tends to have a hint of glitter so that’s a plus–shall we mention the hint of glitz in the SUPER Orgasm? I DIEEE! Try a hot pink lipgloss, or better yet…lipstick and you’re set!

Bid Day is the final round, and it’s back to casual! You’ll be YOUR 1st SORORITY SHIRT, so don’t bother wearing anything too shmancy! You’re gonna want to take new pics so make sure you look on point! Pearl & Diamonds studs are always a plus! Try bows & flowers too! CUTE!

I hope you chicas have an amazing recruitment! Best Wishes!

Sun Kissed, Good or Bad? Hair Summer Tips!

Hello lovely Beach Bums!

        We all know that while the laying out in the sun is oh so great, we must not forget about our hair! So here are some quick summer tips to keep your looking bellisimo.

  1. Stay away from heated hair tools (blow dryer, straightener, etc) If you use them frequently like me, try cutting back to maybe once or twice a week.
  2. Don’t shampoo your hair as often. This will help maintain your curled/straightened hair longer. Also, shampooing your hair frequently strips away all of your natural oils your scalp produces. The more you wash, the more your scalp feels the need to produce more oils. Yuck. 
  3. Condition your ends only. After shampooing your hair, condition the ends only. Leave it in for 5 minutes and your tips will love you a lot more. If your hair is really dry use a little on the top half of your hair for extra moisture. If your hair has a tendency to be greasy AVOID conditioner on the top half ;)
  4. Brush your hair in the shower. When you’re in the conditioning stage brush your hair then. It prevents frizzies!
  5. Rinse your hair with cold water! Cold water closes your pores and retains all of the protein in the shampoo & conditioner!
  6. Dry your hair with a cotton t-shirt! A lot of the time towel material is too rough on the hair, grab one of your old t-shirts and see the difference!

P.S. These tips come from lifetime knowledge shared by my fabulous family members! Enjoy!

Annette Bening in Naeem Khan Fall 2011 

 

Michelle Williams in Chanel Spring 2011 Couture

Jennifer Hudson in Atelier Versace Spring 2008 Couture

I give Jennifer Hudson a giant  for her transformation, her dress…not so much. She looks good, which is what matters. I would have chosen a less Pageant-y dress and gone for a more chiffon+beads-y look. 

Mila Kunis in Elie Saab Spring 2011 Couture

Florence Welch in Valentino Spring 2011 Couture

I wish this dress just stayed on the catwalk, & never left the catwalk. 

Mandy Moore in Monique Lhuillier Spring 2011

Cate Blanchet in Givenchy Spring 2011 Couture

 Nicole Kidman in Christian Dior Spring 2009 Couture

I can’t decide….Nicole def rocked it, but I can’t help but think the dress looks like a fancy chair cover…


 Hailee Steinfeld in Marchesa Resort 2011

Amy Adams in L'Wren Scott Fall 2011  

 

Penelope Cruz in L'Wren Scott Spring 2011 

Although she looks a little busty, she def. looks hot. The dress is busy, but sometimes busy is good! Way to make a statement!

Don't blink, life goes faster than you think: June

Hello lovelies, 

These past few months have been outrageous *cue britney’s outrageous song*. I have finally moved into my new home in Dallas. I went from living on a mattress on the floor in an empty room with hot pink rubbermaid boxes surrounding me for 3 weeks *poor on a PJ* to a spacious new home in one of the cutest areas in town. Those über cheesy pinterest quotes really strike a nerve nowadays. No one prepares you for these moments. So much change. Excuse my blonde moment..but wait…what??? It’s hard not to think that every step you’re taking may or may not be a mistake. Those exact thoughts can either make you or break you. I’ve chosen to use them in a way that will edify me, make me grow. 

This June was especially significant. I began my first full time job, my best friend turned 22 in New York City, I spent a lonelier than normal 22nd birthday and I made my big move to Dallas. It’s borderline psychotic what can happen in a month—now think a year. You all know my motto, do what you love, & do it fabulously. Pull out the inner Naomi Campbell-while-doing-community-service out of you & WOOORRRRK IT. 

A very special congrats to Brent & Hanson on their 1st year anniversary with Roots Juices. The juices are a hit, the party was a hit (*ahem life of the party*) & you guys are a hit! 

Dangerous duo, we are.

Unstoppable.

It is 3:50 a.m Texas time…I am fully wired on coffee and redbulls and every other brain stimulant and of course I’ve got Britney playing full blast every time I get a break!  Anywho–I am just blabbing and that’s never goood. Purpose of this post is: TO THANK YOU GUYS FOR YOUR NEVER ENDING SUPPORT & TO PROMISE BETTER POSTS! ALSO…. Once April is over I plan on giving FABOOSHFABOOK another makeover!
