Last night was Fashion’s Night Out in NYC!

Ford has partnered with Uber, the on-demand car service, to debut its 2013 Fusion by providing gratis transportation powered by the smartphone application. A fleet of Ford vehicles wrapped in custom artwork by New York designer Rebecca Minkoff will be available to fashion purveyors throughout the city. 

Akin to the Fashion’s Night Out program, the 2013 Fusion represents the latest in Ford’s unparalleled history of revolutionary technology and design. “The ability to showcase the 2013 Fusion’s state-of-the-art features to the tech-savvy Uber audience is invaluable” shares Amy Green, East Market Marketing Development for Ford “and celebrating Fashion’s Night Out with sought after designer Rebecca Minkoff, known for her sophisticated designs and attention to detail is a great way to reinforce Ford’s commitment to quality and style.”

“Baby went to Amsterdam.” A beautiful, up and always coming fashion forward & cultured city. Amsterdam has made its mark on the world, by being an electric red city, that holds the hopes of the youth and the ageless! Fashion week 2012 via Amsterdam, is always a hit for the Dutch fashion world. Major trends seen on the runways this year are BOLD, BOLD statement prints and lots of neon coloured pieces. Amsterdam will definitely be my next travel destination, I can’t wait to experience what fashion, and cultural secrets the intriguing city holds.

Bright "LIPS", big city.

And you thought you were a risk-taker for finally adhering to the red lip trend. Well pucker up because this years Paris Fashion Week suggests that lips are getting bigger, better and brighter. My new go-to accessory has in fact been my lip colour. A bright splash of colour can bring any outfit to life and/or change its entire dynamic. From the classic red, to tangerine, full-on orange, hot pink and yes even purple - bright lips are a must have for the coming season (well any season for that matter). 

Having a black on black, on black moment? Take that classy look and make it trendy with a bright lip colour, did I mention it should be bright? Get some inspiration from Christian Dior’s runway look for 2012 [ http://behindthescenesmakeup.com/runway/christian-dior-spring-2012-makeup342/

I recently splurged on a new Chanel pink (just doing my part to stimulate the economy) and might I add it was worth every penny, a-mazing. SO here are a few of my favourite bright lips for when your hitting the big city (or not).
