Oh So, Oh So Baroque

Gianni Versace made the baroque trend super popular in the late 80’s and early 90’s. Me being a product of the 70’s and going through what I call my early prime in the 90’s, I also associate the baroque print with the Notorious B.I.G. He was “notorious” for rocking Versace and rhyming about it in his songs.

Well, as all things old become new again, baroque is back. I am in love with it! It is gaudy and classic all in one. It’s similar to animal print. It begs for only one piece to be worn at a time. I purchased a skirt from ASOS, only for it to be too large and it’s now sold out. So sad! Luckily, they have a few other things worth taking a look at.

Below are a few of my favorite picks:

    Holiday…Let’s Celebrate!!

    Holiday is approaching super fast! Once Halloween comes, you can bet that someone will have a Christmas tree up in the mall or flashing lights at the entrance of their store on November 1st. Holiday is a great time to take advantage of some of the shopping deals that are out there.

    If you are in need of new makeup or have been thinking about trying a line that you have not before, now is the time. Cosmetic companies spend a lot of time and money to pull together sets to optimize their business throughout the holiday season. I have scoured and shopped and tested some of best sets on counter this season. Here are a few for you to try!

    The REGARD SIGNÉ DE CHANEL Palette $65.00

    This palette has 4 shadows that will compliment almost any skin tone. The shimmering gold, plum, smoked taupe and pink shadows are great to wear to all of those holiday parties you have lined up.










    While wandering in the mall, I decided to check out Sephora and there was a ton of gift sets available. I ended up picking up the Stila “All Is Bright” Lip Glaze set for $25.00. It is a really sweet set. It has 8 semi-sheer colors that are not too sticky.








    M.A.C. Cosmetics has always has an abundance of sets to choose from. My favorites are the pigments. A lot of people think that pigments can only be used on the eyes, but that’s not true.Pigments are so multi-faceted. You can mix them with glosses and nail polish. You can wear them as blush colors. Lots of options, RIGHT? 🙂

    Guilty Passions Pigments $32.50










    This set appealed to the practical me. I checked out Bobbi Brown. Bobbi Brown usually pulls out the punches for her holiday sets and this year she did not disappoint. The name of this set is called “From Coffee to Cocktails”. I like this set because it has long wear products in it. It has 2 long wear shadows, a long wear eyeliner and a longwear mascara. The lipstick is not longwear, but is one of their most popular shades.  A small black cosmetics bag comes with the set!
