I guess I'm still bow happy from yesterday! Did you take advantage of Cyber Monday? I didn't. I looked around a little, but it was a busy day and it completely got away from me. I saw that Banana Republic was offering 40% off in store as well (doesn't that defeat the purpose of Cyber Monday?) and I stopped in to buy this bow belt, but they appeared to be all out. And honestly, I got so many amazing Hanukkah gifts last week that I guess it felt greedy to scoop up more goodies, even if there were some great deals to be had. Though I do have a few gift cards left to burn through...
Happy Tuesday! Or should I say, Bowsday. I like that better than "Bluesday", don't you?

Because what's better than lots of bows? Especially at the holidays?
I've never really shopped at New York & Company before, but I wandered in recently to peek at Eva Mendes' collection. (She was at Lucky FABB and was, for lack of a better work, truly fab.) I'm head over heels for this dress, but have nowhere to wear it.
But, it was love at first sight when my eyes laid on this bow sweater, and I couldn't leave the store without it! Graphic and intarsia sweaters are having a big moment, and this is one of the best I've seen. I love the shorter sleeves (most sweater sleeves are too long on me) and the matte sequins give it the perfect amount of shine.
I have a pretty short torso, and this sweater is a little long... but it works well with leggings or super skinny jeans. I hate when you can see jean buttons/pockets under a fitted sweater, but the gingham shirt mitigates that. I'm thinking of tucking it into a leather skirt for meetings or parties... but for a casual weekend day, this combo suits me just fine.

Today, I'm partnering with ShopStyle to spread the word about their We Search. We Find. We ShopStyle! campaign. They challenged me to show off my personal style in a layout, and right now I'm all about black and white (and leopard) with little pops of color and sparkle. I've been living in these pieces recently... from my Rag & Bone Harrow booties to my Equipment leopard print shirt to my vegan leather skirt to my Marc Jacobs Beauty Boom Boom Lip Vinyl... these are some of the pieces in my closet I repeat again and again and again, but I try to challenge myself by wearing them in a slightly different way each time I put them on.
These photos were fun but challenging to take - as is any picture setup in a small Manhattan apartment. Thankfully my super-artistic little sister and our collective senses of humor proved to be great aids in this situation!
Whenever I'm online shopping and looking for something specific, ShopStyle is the first stop I make. Check out their new commercial below!

Lots of good stuff this month. Let's get right to it!
Marc Jacobs Beauty Lust for Lacquer Lip Vinyl. I won this via a Twitter contest. What's so funny is that I went into Sephora a few months ago to buy a bold lipstick and walked out with a clear lip balm (typical). I tweeted at the Marc Beauty account to ask for their advice, and they suggested I give Boom Boom a shot. As luck would have it, that's the shade I won! It's stunningly vibrant and has a nice minty tingle when applied.
Too Faced Better Than False Lashes Nylon Lash Extension System. I'm always looking for quick solutions to beauty problems because let's face it, who has the time to apply false lashes every day? I'm really self-conscious about my short, stubby lashes but I have no interest in getting extensions. What's a girl to do? I freaked out the first time I tried this; my eyes are SO sensitive and that white tube of nylon fibers looks like an accident waiting to happen. This is my weekend mascara. (I'm too nervous to try it with contacts.) If you have eye issues like me, I highly recommend applying the fibers with your eye closed. That being said, this stuff WORKS. I love it!
Tarte LipSurgence Skintuitive Lip Tint. This is the perfect answer to my want for a pretty lip in the morning and my need for speed. I just swipe this on and go. It reacts with my natural lip color and settles into a bright, light pink. I don't usually care for tinted balms, but this feels like a balm and acts like a lipstick. Win win.
Benefit Fake Up Concealer. When I ran out of my beloved Cle de Peau concealer, I decided to try something new and gave this a shot. I have to say... it's basically just as good, and a third of the price. I'm sold.
What beauties have you splurged on lately?
