Currently Coveting: Purple Now & Later


Is it just me, or has purple been having a moment for quite some time? Lavender is the big thing this summer, bringing my latest favorite beauty essentials, Essie Lilacism, MAC Hang Loose Mineralize Blush Duo, and Revlon Lilac Pastelle lip gloss. I'm even more excited for what purple obsessions are waiting for us in the Fall - specifically the NARS' high voltage Daphne eyeshadow and Chanel Paradoxal nail polish (find it now, or get ready to spend some late nights scouring Ebay). Purple toned makeup looks are my favorite right now, adding a bit of coolness to highlight the bronzed skin of summer - the healthy faux bronze of course...

Purple Pleaser


Purple is a color of all seasons, and looks great on just about anyone. It's fun to bring out the lilacs and lavenders of summer like this soft, breezy tunic from Calypso, so easily paired with white shorts or ripped jeans and caviar brown sandals.

Summer Purple


Eggplants and jewel toned royals are always on the horizon for fall. For a twist on a neutral handbag, make a deep purple one your go-to. It'll match all your blacks and browns for the season.
