Standard

This Saturday, February 13, 2016, My Sister’s Closet will release thousands of never before seen spring items to the public starting at 8:00 a.m.  As one lucky valley fashion girl I was selected to peruse the racks early at the Lincoln Village Scottsdale location and give a special sneak peek to readers prior to this weekends shopping extravaganza.

With spring ready to wear fashion on my brain I pulled some amazing looks from the store drawing inspiration from a few of my favorite designer collections.  I also selected a few must have pieces currently showing online to be released for purchase this Saturday.  So set your watches for the countdown because its time to shop spring fashion.

What Guys Really Think About Heels Vs. Flats

Standard

Not too long ago I began taking a survey on heels vs. flats and proposed my question to a large group of working male professionals.  I had a strong suspicion heels would be popular, but just how so was a little surprising.  After a few change of answers there was only one taker for flats and heels won my survey by a landslide.  Below is a snapshot of the information I obtained and glimpse into the male perspective regarding girls who wear heels.

  • It’s all about definition.  They accentuate your calves.  The flex on the foot in the shoe tones the muscle and makes the legs look sleek and sexy.
  • Who wants a nice ass?  They make your butt look good, and to be more specific they make it pop.  When paired with a short skirt… perfection.
  • Can you say leverage?  They make you look taller… and tall girl is a hot girl.
  • Who wants to be an Audrey?  Heels are more classy.  In general they are more attractive, exquisite, and sexy.
  • The vibes you give off.  Heels make guys think you have a greater sense of confidence, sassiness, and sexual power.
  • Height does matter.  Three inches or more is preferred while two inches or less screams librarian.
  • Practice makes perfect.  A girl who can actually walk in a pair of heels with her back straight and a little strut is the sexiest.  Slouching or stumbling is not a good look.
  • Keep them clean.  They should always be kept in good working condition.
  • The laws of attraction.  There is a sexual attraction between a pretty woman and her heels just as for some women there is a  sexual attraction with a man in a uniform.  It’s not the shoes themselves that are stimulating… it’s the shoes being worn by a woman.

Urban Decay Naked Smoky Eyeshadow Palette Review

Standard

Urban Decay recently dropped a new smoky palette now available for customers in stores and online.  On Saturday I picked mine up at Ulta where Urban Decay representatives were hard at work painting beautiful canvases.  As a diehard fan of the original Urban Decay Naked Eyeshadow Palette I was hesitant to jump on the new smoky bandwagon. However, after almost a week of use, the fun in creating looks from the new palette has become one of the most exciting parts of the day.

The new Urban Decay Naked Smoky Eyeshadow Palette consists of twelve shades.  (9 new, and 3 old favorites).  The textures range from sparkle, to satin, to matte, and the color options are perfection.  (I’m loving Smolder right now).  The packaging is straight out of a hookah lounge and inside you will find step by step instruction on how to achieve different looks.  Today I worked the everyday smoky as designed by the Urban Decay make up artists, but have also enjoyed coming up with my own custom color combinations.

Besides the eyeshadow it’s my opinion the new Urban Decay Smoky Eyeshadow Palette also comes with the best brush. It’s a double sided set up with a fluffy end that gets under the orbital bone, and a smudger end that creates the effect everyone is always trying so hard to achieve.

I’ve been pairing my palette with Urban Decay Perversion Mascara and Urban Decay Naked Lipgloss.  The mascara has a great black pigmentation with a wand that’s like a feather duster for you eyelashes.  The lipgloss is no stick and glides on with a nice smooth fragrance free shine.

Although the cost of the palette ($54.00) may be a little pricy for some shoppers I would highly recommended the investment.  The colors, quality, wear, and overall look potential is another level, not to mention the compliments you will receive for looking like a smoked out goddess.
