Game On


Up these stairs sit my girlfriends ~ waiting on me so that we can start our annual Holiday GIRLS Get-Together. What I love about these get-togethers is that we all try to out bling each other.

So ~ I hope they’re ready for it because …

JLfaux1

… I’ve got my BLING GAME ON!

And I mean …

JLfaux2

ON.  (and we were just having lunch)

Now is officially the time of the year to wear your bling and be festive, whether it’s day or night.  And not just your bling.  Break out your velvet, embellished cashmere, luxe leather, faux fur and metallic anything.   Really.

If you don’t take advantage of this time of the year ~ all of your fun, festive-y items will just continue hanging out in your closet being sad.

Stop the sadness.  Shop for your festive-y best:

Not only does this soft leather clutch come in a variety of gorgeous colors, it also holds your makeup and credit cards AND charges your phone!

Yep, this little cutie houses a built-in battery and will recharge most phones and tablets.  Retails for $100.   Santa,  I’ve measured ~ It WILL fit in my stocking.

Now, I love me a good scarf.  And I often wear them ~ especially as a wrap.

Diva D’Luxe scarves normally retail for $30 but they are now on sale for $20 eachAvailable in more colors than I could even hold and at such a smokin’ price.

Kiki bracelets from Minu Jewels look awesome layered together or with other bracelets.  The crystal pendants are available in silver-plate or gold-plate and you have an assortment of real gemstones to choose from. Normally priced at $65 each,  More Than Turquoise followers can use code: MJMTURQ and receive an additional 25% off.

How ’bout great menswear like this Threads 4 Thought flannel shirt from Runway Apparel that was recently spotted on Jared Leto?  Retails for $86.  And what guy wouldn’t love stylish J Brand pants from Izzy Martin?

Why not support great companies that are also clients of WESST?

Lil’ Rusty


The latest addition to my hat wardrobe is this cute fedora that I now lovingly refer to as:  Lil’ Rusty.

Mad

I didn’t initially love him, however.  Actually, my first thought when taking him out of the box was “Now that’s what I get for placing an order online after consuming a fabulous glass of rosé”  … or two.

Because,  I mean, who wants to wear RUST?  And …

Hat3

… I don’t really see that many people wearing this color.

EXACTLY.

Sis-Boom-Bah


How old am I?  Did I really just type the words: Sis-Boom-Bah?  I mean, this cheerleading chant has been around since the mid 1800s and here I am still saying it.  … here I also am skirting around the age question.

varJL

Well, I sorta kinda can’t help myself when I’m wearing the still on trend varsity sweater.

It makes me want to belt out chants like:

VarJL2

GO!    FIGHT!    WIN!    (clap)  (clap)  (clap)  …  (kick)

varJL1

But I won’t. I can suppress the urge.   I do this simply by holding my arms down.

varJL3

Shop the Rah, Rah, Rah  look.

Some of these prices are seriously worth cheering for!

Look Me In The Eye


SO THRILLED,  I was,  when Paula Dorf cosmetics gifted me with this beautiful Aztec City Eye Color Palette set

Paula Dorf Aztec City Eye Pallette 1

and great Lash Color in Teal

lash-color-teal_MED

for this sponsored post because normally I stick to my usual makeup basics.  You know, neutral eye shadows and black mascaras.  yawn.

But since I started doing weekly fashion segments on 2 KASA Style, I’ve been more willing to try different makeup looks. And, frankly, TV makeup is just so different than normal daytime makeup that you pretty much have to go all out ~ otherwise it looks like you’re not wearing any makeup at all.

Since I am TV makeup-challenged, I brought my new kit and mascara to my girl, Kristin, (who does such a terrific job on my makeup for TV) so that we could try it out for a show.

PD2

Kinda fab, huh?

PD TV Coll

These are high quality shadows so you don’t have to apply many layers to achieve the look.  We also added eyelashes and applied the teal mascara.

If you’re not familiar with Paula Dorf cosmetics, she is perhaps best known for her “trick” products, such as the liquid eyeliner transformer which transforms any eye shadow into a long wearing, smudge-proof liner and her Perfect Primer, which keeps your foundation fresh.  Learn more about all of her products here.

I do, indeed, love my gifts from Paula Dorf, but is it really fair of me to form my opinion based on looks that were created by a professional makeup artist?  I decided that I had better try these products out by myself,  ON myself.

Here is my daytime look:

PD HO CollPD22

Me likey ~ Me likey!  Ok, so I’m no pro but it was pretty easy.  PLUS I did receive lots of double-takes throughout the day.  Was it the gorgeous eye shadows or the shock of not seeing me in my usual makeup uniform?

So if you think you might “likey” to try out my eye shadow kit as well, then I’ve got a little extra incentive for you.  If you purchase the Aztec City Eye Color Palette and use code: TEAL ~ Paula Dorf will give you a FREE teal mascara with your purchase!

And now that I’ve got my new makeup looks under control, let’s talk about a subject matter for which I am NOT challenged with whatsoever:

SHOES!
