Product Review: STBD Shower Cap

Not all product reviews are glamorous. Such is the case with the STBD (Save the Blow Dry) shower cap. However, I still enjoyed trying it out! It is definitely more comfortable than traditional shower caps and it does seem to protect my hair better. The dual layer design leaves me (and my locks) feeling warmer and drier than I do with the cheap, plastic shower caps. I love that it has a cute, feminine design- even though you feel silly wearing a shower cap sometimes, you can feel a little prettier in this one!

What makes the STBD shower cap amazing is the combination of a waterproof design with an internal layer of super-absorbent micro weave towelling, which zaps humidity and condensation. The STBD shower cap has a 100% guarantee that it is the best blow dry protection. What's even cooler is that you can turn it inside out and use it over your favorite hair treatment! Easy to wipe clean and lets your hair products do their magic better!

Chill Out, It's Almost Winter

Fall is quickly coming to an end. Just two more weeks until we can officially start "walking in a Winter wonderland." For many, the fireplaces are already blazing, the hot chocolate is already steaming and the Christmas music is already playing. When it comes to fashion, Winter finds are (interestingly) already hot! Here are a few Winter trends to try out this season, before they "cool off."

1. Sequins
Holiday parties are fun. They are also an excuse to get your sparkle on. This Winter, add some glitz and glam to your ensembles with sequined pieces like this Lovers + Friends pullover. Classic colors like gold and black are easy to find but don't be afraid to choose pieces that are colorful and fun!

2. Leather
...and lip gloss? Sure, why not! Leather is hot (pun intended) this Winter. You can find pants, jackets, dresses, shoes, just about anything in leather. Faux leather and vegan leather are two other options making waves this season. I love these quilted faux leather pants by Tripp NYC. Pair with colorful accessories or add some fun with bright makeup (like lip gloss) or shoes.

3. Vests
You can wear them over simple tees or add to a festive outfit. You can find them in denim, fur, camo and more. This Winter, add some warmth and style to any look by adding a fun vest like this fuzzy find from Bloomingdale's.

4. Button Downs
Nothing sounds more fabulous on a cold day than sitting by a fire in jeans and a comfortable button down flannel shirt. This Winter, you can find a wide range of styles for button downs, including 3/4 sleeves and dresses. Plaid and denim are popular but you can find great options, like this Sandra Ingrish knit shirt, in solid colors too.

Mod About You

Often times when I am "window shopping" online, I come across a piece I love...and then another piece I love...and then I start to realize that all of the pieces I am drawn to are from the same brand. Such is the case with my latest online shopping spree. I came across a few pieces from ModCloth that really caught my eye. Here they are, along with some suggestions on what to pair each item with. You can click directly on each picture to view the information and purchase right from this post!

For a fun night out, I found this In the Garden Skirt, which is paired with a teal and black striped shirt, teal suede pumps, a black clutch and gold accents.

For a business casual look, I found this Snuggly Scholar Sweater   and combined it with some ivory trousers, a zebra print scarf and some black & gold heart accent pieces. Comfy shoes that stay with the color scheme top off the look.

Finally, for something feminine and frilly, this Professional Pizzazz Sweater caught my eye. Pair with a pleated navy skirt and navy tights, some light rosy colored heels and simple navy studs, and you've got an almost nautical look.

Lingerie Land

Fashion is not just about what's on the outside. It's also about what's underneath. There are times we feel like wearing sexy pieces of lingerie, and times we feel like curling up under the sheets in cozy cotton. If you're in the UK, you may have just been introduced to your favorite place to shop for "the land down under." Oh, wait...that's Aussies...

From uber sexy to comfy cozy, www.lingerie.co.uk offers a wide selection of lingerie for women and men! You can find anything to fit your mood- whether you are feeling frisky or frumpy! Here are a few of my favorite products.

This Eclat Mode Chemise by Antinea combines the sexy and the comfortable and what's really great about it is that you can even pair it with a cute jacket and fun pair of boots and turn it into a daytime piece. Talk about versatile!

For women who fall into the plus size category, this Pleated Chiffon Babydoll piece is feminine and fun. Sexy and comfortable, this will make both you and your man happy campers! Great for romantic nights in, when you want just a little bit of sexiness.

Finally, this Bustier by Escante takes things up a notch for all of you Fifty Shades of Grey fans. If you are in a "red room of pain" mood, this piece would be great. Not that it would stay on you for very long...

Check out the entire collection, which offers products from many designers, by visiting the company website.

A Touch of Summer for Fall

If you're like me, you enjoy the transition from Summer to Fall but still wish you could carry the Summer around with you. Well fashionistas, you can- at least in the style world! That Summer floppy hat you have that you thought about retiring? Don't! You can create a fabulous Fall look by using a sun hat with some classic Fall pieces. Hats are not just for blocking the sun. They add class and style to almost any look, and can protect you from other seasons' inclement weather.

In this first look, I chose a simple red dress from my existing wardrobe, added a thick belt and paired it with some ankle boots and scrunched up knee socks- a look that is becoming popular this season. This is a great way to add some Fall appeal to your look. I added a touch of Summer with the sun hat and the bright bangle (that you can win!- check the bottom of this post for details). I topped off the look with a fun, colorful cross necklace and some gold bangle earrings.



  

In this second look, I also pulled pieces from my closet and created a more rugged looking ensemble. A pair of jeans, a plain white tank top and a fun off the shoulder top make this look chic and funky. The hat adds a touch of class and the bangle, a touch of color. A fab Fall look that makes me think "Kentucky Derby."
