MADSEN STYLE FEATURED SPOTLIGHT: House Of Lash Dolls

MADSEN STYLE FEATURED SPOTLIGHT: House Of Lash Dolls

For the past few months I’ve been mixing up my beauty routine and decided to get lash extensions at a small privately owed lash salon called, House of Lash Dolls. I never knew that this simple trick would dramatically change my day-to-day process and boost my confidence the way it has. To say I feel more comfortable bare faced is an understatement. The sleek, light weight lashes gave my eyes an added pop and took years off of my face. Whether I choose to wear makeup or not these days, the soft lashes enhance my look and make me feel sexy and flirty.  Sara, the owner and senior lash stylist, is an expert at selecting the right lashes that frame your eyes for a natural or dramatic look depending on your personal preference. With several lash styles available, there’s an option for every budget and no excuse not to try these little magic workers.

Velvet Crush

Velvet Crush

The day has come where I’m forced to eat my words, I love velvet! The Fall trend has caught me by surprise and I’m loving it in clothing, accessories, bags but mostly in shoes! The soft hand creates such a glamours texture and the way the fabric holds color makes for some rich looking footwear. Thankfully I see this trend continuing into Winter and Spring with some gorgeous saturated colors. Do make sure you take care of your precious pumps, as they aren’t ideal for rough weather and should be sprayed.

All of these sexy shoes are available from REVOLVE, but hurry they will go fast!
How are you wearing the velvet trend this Fall?

The Daily Find: Forever 21 Bow Choker

The Daily Find: Forever 21 Bow Choker

Chokers are all the rage right now and I’ve seen a variety of prices tags to go with them. With such a trendy item, I recommend saving your dollars and purchasing these dainty accessories from retailers like Forever21 or H&M for a lower price point. Unless you have a special event and need a necklace embedded with precious stones, save your money for other pieces, like shoes!
Happy Shopping!

Top: Target | Vest: Bar III | Leather Pants: Forever21 | Handbag: Prada

One of my fashion tips for people, no matter their budget is learning how dress high to low. This means knowing when to splurge and when to save money on those fashion pieces you have your eye on. I personally invest in classic items that don’t go out of season very often like great denim, a perfect fitting trench coat, handbags and shoes. When it comes to really trendy items, I don’t like to spend a lot of money and shop at stores like Zara, H & M, Target and so forth. When mixing garments with different price points you tend to create a more polished and balanced look. Knowing where to spend and save your money is key in creating a well rounded closet.

Jacket: Cupcakes and Cashmere | Dress: Chelsea28 | Shoes: Steve Madden | Clutch: Peridot Boutique | Jewelry: Baublebar

With Valentine’s Day this weekend I wanted to share my special look that I’ll be wearing. Trying to step out of the normal all red or white look, I wanted an updated look and played with color. This bright coral Chesea28 dress is incredible, the fit, the hue and the ruffles! I zipped it on and fell in love! My Cupcakes and Cashmere jacket is a new purchase and it helped creat a great balance for the vibrant dress. I wanted a piece that tied everything together, so I chose a favorite floral print clutch that I’ve had for a couple years. With so much color, nude heels are a must in order to created a well balanced and fun look.

What will you be wearing while sharing the special day with a special someone?

Dress: Leith | Vest: Peridot Boutique | Shoes: Target | Sunglasses: Nordstrom B.P. (similar)

Finding the perfect little black dress can be extremely taunting as many of you know. Thankfully after years of searching I’ve finally found one that I’m obsessed with. This Leith midi by Nordstrom is so comfortable, transitional and flattering for all body types. It’s been a staple item in their stores for a couple of seasons now, and my only wish is that it came in more colors! I’ve worn this dress for formal events like New Years, in the office, dressed down on the weekends, and everything in between. If I had to choose my favorite thing about this dress besides the fit, it would be the thick fabric, it’s very forgiving and has a great feel to it.

What do you love about your favorite little black dress?
