Monday Bunday

December 1, 2014

Looking for a polished hairdo that doesn’t take a lot of work?  We have the one for you.  A low bun looks pulled together and chic without being overdone.  Start with curled or wavy hair to give the bun some texture.


lowbun1

Spray your hair with some dry shampoo to add texture and volume to your locks.  Section most of your hair up into a clip on top of your head.  Tease the remaining hair below to add some volume.

 

lowbun2

With a small section of hair, create a low ponytail at the base of the neck.  This will help provide some stability for the bun.

 

lowbun3

Use the rest of your hair to create a second ponytail on top of the first.  I suggest using two pony tails so that the bun won’t be weighed down as much if you just used one.

 

lowbun4

Smooth the top of your hair and begin to spin the pony tails around onto the base.

Let the bun stay full once you’ve finished spinning it around the base and secure it with bobby pins.  Work your way around the bun pinning it securely.  Make sure you take the end pieces that tend to stick out of the bun and tuck them into the bun with more bobby pins.  You want to secure the bun as close to your head as possible so that it doesn’t move.  Finish off with a light hold hair spray.

This bun is supposed to be relaxed and bit messy so don’t worry if you have some loose pieces, it will just add to the look.  This is a great hairdo for second or third day hair after you have had it curled.  Its perfect to hide dirty hair when you don’t have time for anything else.  We love this look for the office as well.  Stay tuned and we are going to show you how to create a bun for a holiday evening party!

Cool in Coco

November 22, 2014

Look no further for a marvelous dress to wear this Holiday season, we have found the one!  The Coco Maxi by Diane Von Furstenberg in a blue python print is absolutely amazing!  No one will be able to look away when you walk into the room in this dress.  It is crafted from luxurious silk jersey and features a one shoulder silhouette with a faux wrap skirt.  This dress was created excuslively for the 40th anniversary of Diane’s iconic wrap dress.  With a self-tie waist and a high slit detail this is truly a show stopper of a dress.  We layered some sparkling Dannijo chokers along with a dazzling pair of earrings for this evening look.  Eddie Borgo cone bracelets in silver accented the dress and other jewelry perfectly.  These bracelets are ones you will reach for everyday regardless of the occasion.  We honestly can’t get enough of them, they look great with everything!  Lastly, we put on some strappy heels to finish the look.  Not only will you look fabulous in this maxi, but you will feel it too!  It is so comfortable you won’t want to take it off at the end of the night.

Fall Floral

October 5, 2014

 

Who says you can’t wear florals for Fall? Definitely not Trina Turk!! She has created the most perfect floral pant with a beautiful Fall palette. The Frea pant features a great neutral gray background with pops of burnt orange and fuschia. We love to mix patterns so we paired the pants with a great shirt by Diane von Furstenberg and we finished off the look with a black and nude quilted Raoul bag. Shop this look and others now at www.lovemosaic.com.

Wild Thing

September 13, 2014

 

It all about animal prints today on the blog!  Leopard is one of my all time favorite animal prints and is so on trend this fall.  I love how people are calling Leopard the new black and treating it as if it were a neutral color.  It truly is a versatile print that can be worn pretty much with anything so it is definitely a timeless print.

A great silk leopard print blouse is a must have in everyone’s closet.   I decided to dress this blouse up with a silk pleated maxi skirt by Malene Birger and adding a Dannijo necklace.  This is a stunning evening outfit that will certainly set you apart from the crowd.  The great thing about this Equipment blouse is that you can wear this dressed up or down with a pair of jeans and boots.

I love the mod style of this Rachel Zoe dress and the leopard accent at the hem.  It is such a simple, but striking look that can be worn so many ways.  I styled it here with heels and a fabulous clutch by Nanette Lepore, but I can also see this dress with an elegant coat and boots.  This is a dress you will reach for over and over again for years to come.

I love the fun, flirty feel of this outfit!   This Diane Von Furstenburg sweater pairs perfectly with the BCBG aline skirt and by Malene Birger boots and hat.   The gray metallic leopard print is different from what you normally see and the conservative cut of the sweater make this a timeless piece.  I previously styled this sweater with jeans and sneakers so you can see the versatility of this piece.

A leopard coat is a must have for any chic lady!  It transforms a simple black dress into a fabulous date night look.  This La Prestic Ouiston coat is made from vintage scarves and pairs so nicely with this black BCBG dress and Megan Park necklace.  I finished the outfit with this fur Raoul clutch and strappy heels.
