On friday, Jo Malone launched a new fragrance line that allows you to custom build your own scent.

Just in time for the holidays, Sephora will be carrying 4 of 21 scents available.

The concept is simple but ingenious, as each fragrance does not come in a bottle but a long tube with a paint brush applicator. It then goes on as a gel instead of a mist. Hence, the name fragrance paintbrushes.

At the launch, Jo Malone was there herself to show how to use the paintbrushes stating it required some drying time between layers. However, with 24 varieties including combinations like orange bergamot, the different scent you can make are endless.

This would be the perfect gift for the perfume lovers in your life for the holidays.

Happy shopping,🎅

Hello my fellow curvy readers,

The holidays are upon us and with it comes all the holiday parties. Being curvy makes it sometimes hard to look Chic and sexy during the holidays but; not anymore! You can’t go wrong with a sequin dress! It’s sparkly, flattering and goes with any shoes and accessories you may have in your closet. This season sees the long sleeve sequin dress as a new silhouette and I couldn’t be happier as it keeps you warm, hides any flaws and looks so sexy on any body type. Try pairing this dress with neutral accessories or add sequin or rhinestone pieces for that glittery Christmas Ornament vibe! I was  totally surprised to find many options in slinky, sexy and cute designs; all being under $127! Let us know if you Fall in Love with any of our glamorous pics!

 

Hello Readers,

That time of year is upon us for the annual Christmas and Holiday parties. There will be so many and you can’t wear the same thing to every one of them; so why not have some fun this year will your outfits and get several sequin dresses! You can’t go wrong with a sequin dress as it flatters any figure, is chic and goes with just about any shoe or bag! This year we are looking at the long sleeved version as it’s more versatile,keeps you warmer and is much more flattering on all figures; try adding neutral accessories or go full on sequin to get your Christmas ornament homage on..The sequin dress in lower price points has been  looking very luxe lately with more attention to details,the sequin fabric being fuller, more color ways and chicer silhouettes. These are our picks for the best sequin dresses under $100 so you can go to all those holiday parties without wearing the same thing and not breaking the bank.

 

 

 

It is finally time to think about that winter wardrobe. It seems the cold weather arrived the same time as the leaves fell from the trees and the fall and winter have somehow melted together. But don’t despair, the opulence of winter is upon us now!!

Hello readers

Winter is finally upon us and all though coats can be bulky and unflattering; I am happy to say that this year the staple every woman needs; the puffer coat/jacket has seen an update! I have noticed slimmer fit, less bulkiness and new finishes and colors. I really love the new metallic finish I saw all over the runways this past February at New York Faşhion Wk. The Winters are brutal in New York and I often find myself traipsing threw blizzards in the name of Faşhion; so it’s nice to have a stylish coat to keep me from turning into a popsicle..I do however have to find this style in a plus size version as I previously wrote about.  I tried to keep my finds under $230 as coats can be expensive and it’s nice to have multiple options as I own several styles for different temps and my Andrew Marc puffer coat is on her last trip before she heads to Poshmark.. (on a side note if you want to see what I wear and get a chance to buy it my Poshmark account is Evadivacutie and if you use my code which is also my user name you can get $5 off your first purchase and right now my closet is 30% off bundles!) ok so below are my fave picks! Enjoy and let us know if you chose any of the coats I picked!

 

Hello readers

In honor of our new menswear Monday’s ( and because it’s officially freezing temps time!) I decided to share with you lovely male readers our picks for updating the Winter staple just about everyone has; the puffer jacket. This year we are seeing bold color combos, sleeker fit and metallic finishes that really bring a cooler more futuristic spin to an old favorite. The new versions have you looking much more polished while staying warm! Below are my pics and nothing is over $120! Hope you guys love my picks!

 

 

hello readers

Its finally the time of year for that frosty bite to the air! I love this time of year the most and relish the chance to update my coat and jacket choices. I do own a collection of faux fur jackets and coats (10 and counting…don’t judge me!) but I am always looking for warmer and eye catching designs. This year saw faux fur patterns in bolder and much more vibrant colors. I love faux fur for its versatility( you can wear over just about any clothing combo you can think of ; or leave it as your statement piece) and for how easy to care for it is (real fur is a nightmare to keep clean). I have scoured the internet to bring you my fave picks hopefully you find something you love!

 

 

hey readers!

It’s  almost time for Winter. If your like me it’s very difficult to find a coat that makes you look hot and keeps you warm! I always have to size up and then look super bulky when I add sweaters or hoodies under as I live in NYC and the winters are brutal! I did manage to find a coat from Andrew Marc last year that was cozy and kept me looking chic! So I have rounded up my top picks of flattering coats in different cuts, colors and styles; all to keep you warm, toasty and haute! Hope you agree!

 

Hello readers!

I am obsessed with menswear so when I came across A lookbook Online I had to get more info on the Korean Brand known as Vlades or Mooyul Vlad. I fell in love with their hard edge punk meets oversized street wear mash up. There wasn’t much I could find about the Brand; other then the label was started in 2012 by Korean designer Moo Yeol Choi and that many high end magazines such as Vogue have featured their line. They are also popular with Kpop bands and in the us Opening Cermony carries some of their line. They  prices aren’t too bad..most sweatshirts are $80 usd.

AHA Mercancile has given independent brands a voice for some time. Yesturday, they turned a slick midtown apartment into a holiday showcase fulled with slick home decor and decadent jewelry.

We sipped hot bourbon cinder while we perused some of what the site has to offer. Here are a few of our favorite things:

  • OYO box – which has various boxes that hold things that most other brands neglect, sunglasses and watches.

  • This beautiful hand blown glass bowl is part of our teranium goals with beautiful peaks inside, just $97.

  • A coffee set with real stone accents paired with real copper.

Check out Aha Mercancile for all your upscale holiday needs, www.ahalife.com.

As always, check our instagram for more images from the event at tfgnyc.

Happy hump day?
