Lately, I have really been obsessing over bold lip colors. A wine stained pout is all you need to transform your look for the fall season. A bold lip color can enhance your appearance and add a hint of femininity. To achieve this look, try CoverGirl Outlast All-Day Lipcolor in Burgundy. If you like this color, but think it's too dark, lightly dab your lip color on your lips, using your fingers for a subtle, stained look. Then apply gloss for an even shine. Here are some examples. Good luck!

Backstage at the Chanel Haute Couture Collection, nude eyes and the perfect shade of red lipstick were the makeup of choice. Apply concealer around your eyes to cover up any imperfections, then begin to contour your cheeks and chin with a light sweep of soft pink blush. Add clear mascara to your lashes for a natural finish and lastly, groom your brows. This look is easy and fast. Basically, you can't mess this up.

Something as simple as a chic belt can easily transform your entire look. Lately, I have seen this trend on the most fashionable young celebrities and fashion forward 20-somethings on the streets of Europe. All you will need is a thin belt. Use the excess flap to wrap around the belt on your waist, but keep the flap down. Whether it is cinched around your waist or on your favorite pair of denim cut-offs, this is an easy way to incorporate trends straight from the runway into your every day style.

Color theorists say orange is said to signify high energy. It is no secret that wearing a bold color can perk up your mood. Orange can be a tricky color to pull off, but I think it looks great on any skin tone. Even when it comes to makeup, a coral or tangerine lipstick can easily illuminate your tired eyes and bare cheeks. When wearing an orange lip, keep the eye makeup subtle, no need for eyeliner. Just heavy mascara to keep your lips the focal point. Wearing any bold color can brighten up your wardrobe and your complexion, so opt for a more sun-kissed twist. Not too scary, right?

A french influenced wardrobe from the film L'Amant, gave Erin Fetherston the inspiration to create her 2011 Resort collection. I'm such a girly girl when it comes what I like to wear, so of course, I became overly giddy when I saw how amazing her collection was. Erin designs for what girls everywhere really want to dress like, effortlessly chic and polished. I love the gorgeous silk bow blouses, the skin tight black cigarette pants and how all of Erin's pieces are tailored to fit a woman's body. Of course, wearing YSL Tribute heels completed the looks. Erin's line epitomizes sophistication and femininity. Excuse me while I have a moment to dream, but I want her entire collection in my closet as soon as possible.

Always attending the most fashionable events, Olivia Palermo made several appearances throughout Fashion Week. I am a huge fan of Olivia, because not only does she have immaculate taste in clothing and accessories but, she reuses those accessories when attending different events. It just shows how creative and innovative she is. Most celebrities borrow from designers and stylists, but the majority of her looks come from her own wardrobe.
Olivia, at Elie Saab, wearing a violet sheer leopard print cocktail dress. I'm used to seeing her in more refined clothing, but she toned down the wild print with feminine accents. However, I am not too crazy about the large belt around her waist. Maybe, a slimmer belt would do the trick.
Olivia Palermo at the Armani Prive Couture show looking chic and comfortable in a silk white blouse and drawstring high-waisted shorts.
This nude lace dress Olivia wore to Valentino was my favorite look, very sweet and girly. It gave off a vintage feel, which I love.
Looking elegant and sophisticated at the Boss Black show wearing, you guessed it, a cream Hugo Boss dress. Olivia added a pop of color with her signature red nails. This color can be somewhat boring, but I love the color contrast of the dark red pumps and bright clutch she paired with the dress.

As you may know from previous posts, I adore Emilio Pucci. He was given the title, "Prince of Prints" for a good reason. Emilio Pucci has designed everything from sleek ski-wear, geometric print swimsuits, lightweight blouses and short playful dresses. His psychedelic prints became popular among jet-setters who were traveling to the most fashionable destinations and didn't have much room in their suitcase for big, bulky clothing. His wrinkle-free, jersey fabric dresses were the go-to outfit to travel with. Emilio's designs were so stylish, even Barbie wore Pucci! To this day, his beloved prints are still mainstream on scarves, sunglasses and dresses. The mini shift dress is one of my favorite dresses of all time. Especially, covered in vivid bold prints and swirly colorful designs. Something about wearing these dresses makes you feel like you should be a go go dancer but, without the thigh high boots. If you find a print dress that you like, keep it mild with your accessories. I always find that black is the perfect color to pair with prints. Wear a black flat or patent leather pumps. If you're thinking, "Where would I wear this?" People ask me that all the time and the answer is simple. Anywhere! Shopping at the mall, out to lunch or in the office with a chic blazer. I am certain you will be the center of attention all day and every girl will ask you where you bought your dress. The possibilities are endless with this one, it's all about having fun when wearing a print dress. If you're brave enough to try it, 60s print dresses are a great way to add flare to your wardrobe.
