ME WANT! Item of the Week

ME WANT!  Item of the Week

Elisabeth C says…

Some gals shy away from trends that they aren’t quite sure how to wear – and that includes the Aztec print that has been so hot for the last few months.  It’s not too late to bag an item that will keep you on-trend, and it is actually much easier to work the look than you think.

So here’s my must-have Item of the Week (and how to wear it!)

High-Waist Pleated Pant | YourLAmode | $20.50

These pants are so comfortable and working the trend is as easy as 1, 2, 3… 

1.  Team them with a little white or black tank, and matching heels to show off your figure.

2.  Pop on a boyfriend t-shirt for a more comfortable, relaxed weekend look.

3.  Shrug into a blazer with statement shoulders and sky high heels for a chic and sexy evening look.

Easy, chic and affordable, this is a season essential.  Get some Aztec in your closet now!

The Perfect Shoe for Summer

Elisabeth C says…

The weather’s warming up, so it’s time to think about updating your wardrobe for summer – and here’s how to do it on the cheap.

Think about what you need to make your outfit pop – put your money into that as a ‘statement piece’ for the summer – the rest you can do on a budget and still look stylish.

Investing in a cute pair of shoes for summer is a good start.  The Dayna Sandal from Ellie Shoes is my number one pick for this summer.   It’s the wedge with an edge, featuring a 4.5” cork heel that has daring tattoo style embroidery.  A rounded toe, cute t-bar and sandal cutouts in the upper make these a summer classic.

Have a look at how you can update your wardrobe on a budget for the summer by checking out sexy and playful swimsuits, cute tops and summery skirts.

ME WANT! Must-Have Item of the Week

Elisabeth C says…

This week’s Item of the Week is something that every girl should already have, it’s something you can never have too many of, and it’s something you can keep replacing over time and upgrade with extra style details.

It’s LEGGINGS.

An ankle length pair of leggings is THE foundation for a casual outfit.  Match it with a baggy boyfriend style t-shirt and bang on some heels – you look hot.  Team it with a micro skirt and a tank – you look hot. 

 Leggings show off your curves or hide them, depending on how you wear them and what mood you’re in.  Versatile and very affordable – order a pair today from yourlamode

Four must-have lip colors for Spring 2014

Elisabeth C says…

I don’t need an excuse to buy new make up but when one comes along, I snap it up!  So, it’s my pleasure to introduce you to the four must-have lip colors for Spring 2014.

Brighten your look with oranges and pinks that pop, seductive purples and classic nudes will be competing for space in your clutch on nights out.

 Check out these favorites of mine…

Mac Pro Longwear Lip Pencil in More to Love

 

This lip pencil is the MOST amazing thing in my make up bag.  Pop some foundation or lip primer on as a base, and use this as a lip color by itself, or as a base for some gloss or a lipstick.  It does not bleed, smudge or make its way onto your teeth.

Sephora Collection: Luster Matte Long-Wear Lip Color in Coral

                        

Beware.  Once this lip stain is on, it ain’t coming off.  It feels a little like paint when it goes on, but once it dries you’ll have hours of bright, luscious color.  It looks after your lips too, with rose hip seed oil for nourishment.

Too Faced Melted Liquefied Long Wear Lipstick in Violet

 

Not your traditional lipstick shape – this one comes in a tube, but fits into your clutch nicely and packs a punch beyond its size.  A glossy finish leaves you looking fresh and kissable.

Maybelline Color Sensational The Buffs

 

Maybelline has come to the rescue this season, with a little something for everyone.  Perfect your smoky eye make-up and find a nude lipstick that matches your exact skin tone to make your look more seductive.  Maybelline’s taken the hard work out by creating a whole range of glossy nude lipsticks that are comfortable to wear, and look amazing.

You have your excuse…now get shopping!

3 Best Products to Stop High Heel Pain

Elisabeth C says…

Personally, I am a 4.5”-and-above kind of girl.  I could sit here for hours and tell you the benefits of wearing heels…they make your legs look longer (especially nude or lucite heels), you look taller (who couldn’t do with a few extra inches?) they shape your calves, thighs and butt - (there’s an excuse to skip a workout!) and let’s face it, they look amazing.

Christian Louboutin says ‘high heels are pleasure with pain’…he’s right - and a while ago, I would have told you it’s worth it, but not anymore!  We’ve all been there - trying on a hot pair of heels and they don’t quiiiiite fit, but they look so good and hey! maybe they’ll stretch a little….and they sit at the back of the closet having never seen the light of day, or a dance floor. 

So ladies - here are my three absolute must-have products for making your heels more comfortable with as little effort as possible.

1. Dr Scholl’s DreamWalk High-Heel Insoles - $7.99

These insoles are made of soft, squishy gel that you pop into your shoe.  It moves some of the weight off the ball of your foot, and relieves pressure from your arch.  They’re super thin too so they won’t make your shoes feel tight.

Pair the Loren high-heeled sandals from Ellie Shoes - YourLAMode with Dr Scholl’s DreamWalk insoles - you’ll feel like you’re walking on air.

2. Femme - Gel Slingback Strips - $7.95

These things are genius.  Tiny thin strips pop inside the strap of your sling-back, your mary-jane, or any other strappy sandal style you’re having a problem with.  The gel cushion feel stops rubbing, slipping and the straps cutting into your feet.

Try the Femme Gel Slingback Strips with the sexy Lucia slingbacks.  Designed by Ellie Shoes, available at YourLAMode

3.  Heel No Pain Spray - $14.95 (1FL OZ)

Yes, you read right.  This is a spray that numbs your feet just enough to take away high-heel pain.  A couple of sprays and 15 minutes later, you’ll be back on the dance floor.  The best part…?  It comes in a purse sized pack for nights out.

The Lyli Metallic Stiletto Heels from YourLAMode look amazing…but you might need a bit of help if you’re on your feet for hours.  

Try these out and let me know if it helps.  Life’s too short to not wear high heels!
