“I guess we all like to be recognized not for one piece of fireworks, but for the ledger of our daily work,” is a famous quote by American Astronaut Neil Armstrong who was the inspiration for Rebecca Minkoff‘s Fall 2013 ready to wear show.
Taking loose inspiration from outer space we saw white leather jackets and a kitchy “Space” t-shirt. Quilted detailing softened tough leather while giving a recognizable ode to astronaut inspired garb.
A tomboy vibe was definitely layered throughout with models strutting down the runway with contrasting cozy knits along with plenty of furry berets. To pull off these boyish looks, make-up called for strong brows, a dash of blush, and a swipe of gloss. Very minimalistic.
Keeping to her roots and dazzled with colorful and flowy silks with great structure adding a welcomed bit of femininity.
Still the standouts this season where Minkoff’s eye catching outerwear. Check out one of the designer’s favorites which paired leather trim, a shearling collar, and bonded mesh tweed; a definite stand out.

Inspired by the streets of New York City Michael Kors‘ Fall runway show let’s us know that the way to go next season is sure to be sporty, urban and chic.
A bright pop of color was injected by way of a taxi-cab inspired orange while a cobalt blue accented a city girl’s go-to: black on black.
When it comes to the accessories its clear that ankle strap heels are here to stay. Keeping to the sporty theme, pumps were donned with large elastic bands for a gritty and bold touch. Models strutted down the runway wearing large motorcycle-esque shades that are sure to make an impact and carried very structured woman-in-charge satchel handbags.

What’s in your Make-up Bag?
Let’s face it, there are some things that a girl just can’t live without and mascara is definitely one of them! Being a Shore girl a minimal look that is as easy as 1-2-3 is essential since I’m always on the go.
The BB Cream from Maybelline has become a new favorite with its SPF tint that gives light coverage for quick cover-ups and the best part is that it changes colors to get the match your exact complexion. I also like to add a bit of bronzer to my cheekbones for an easy radiant sunkissed look.
A chunky eyeliner, like this NARS pencil, is the perfect make-up essential when you want to quickly add a bit of drama. Create a dramatic cat eye or smudge some all over for a no-fuss smokey eye look.
Nude nail polish is a go to color as it goes with any outfit day or night and one can never go wrong with a red lip especially this semi-sheer one from Revlon.
Quality make-up brushes and remover are often times over looked but really quite important in keeping your face fresh and clean and gaining a flawless look.
A metallic pencil skirt can be a little intimidating, but try it with a crisp white button down for work or a white tee for a casual vibe. Another metallic trend I can’t get enough of? Metallic beauty—hair, makeup, nails—I love it all. A swipe of metallic eye shadow is perfect for date night and a metallic hair cuff will turn your pony tail from plain to pretty at the office. Are you as obsessed with this trend as I am? Try out a funky metallic heeled sandal to start off your metallic wardrobe!

All winter and early spring I was dying to wear sandals—I couldn’t wait to get pedicures and get back into my flip flops, open toed wedges and gladiator sandals instead of my feet hiding away for months in boots.
But now that my feet have seen the sun and even the sand, I just wore a pair of boots this past weekend. I know how crazy that seems. But—these new Tory Burch Sabe booties make any outfit look instantly edgy. Yes, even a floral Peter Pan collared dress looks tougher when worn with a little pair of ankle booties.
The Tory Sabe Booties are a gorgeous suede caramel that just screams perfect summer boot. The key to wearing boots in the summer is to mix your fabrics and colors the right way. Even though suede is a heavier fabric we usually associate with cooler months, this light caramel is more summery than black would be. It’s a great addition to your summer wardrobe and makes any outfit you’d normally think to wear sandals with look a bit more modern.
You can never go wrong with cutoffs and a top with your booties, and wear them to dress down an otherwise girly sundress. For a night out, try them with a pair of skinnies and a crop top, and for a day look, wear a sheer maxi skirt for a cool mix of textures.
Give your sandals a break and wear an ankle bootie for an unexpected twist on your sundresses and denim shorts!
