LA Delay!


At this very moment I was supposed to be on a flight to LA, but as you all probably know, Hurricane Sandy has swept through NY and caused major havoc on transportation, travel, and pretty much everything else. Then I received that dreaded email that my flight was cancelled. I was majorly bummed to say the least. Now I leave tomorrow afternoon but I guess I must see it as the universe at work. Maybe for whatever reason I'm supposed to be in NY right now. Luckily my entire family and myself are doing just fine. Considering I live in a high rise building in Times Square, I haven't had to deal with power outages and flooding. I feel very blessed to have gotten through this storm safe and sound and I'm praying for anyone who has had a rough time through all this and the people and families who were affected by this hurricane. Fortunately the storm has died down and I get to say farewell to NY tomorrow for a few sunny days. My schedule is going to be a little tight while I'm out there but I'm sure I can schedule in a couple of things so feel free to email me at michellejailine@gmail.com.

Dress for Less!


Peplum is so big this season in every way! It can compliment any woman's shape because it accentuates the waist and hides any bulge. Kim Kardashian was recently seen in Rome with Yeezy wearing a long sleeve green peplum dress by Lanvin! As I was doing some online browsing/shopping on Go Jane as I always am, I came across this cute peplum green dress that is oh so similar to Kim's! As soon as I laid eyes on it, it reminded me so much of the Lanvin dress she wore in Rome! I love that it's such a perfect color for the fall season and even more perfect for a holiday party. I love finding great pieces for less and Go Jane is my go-to site for this! I like that it's not exactly the same as Kim's and has a longer piece of fabric in the front to add a little extra something different. Gotta love peplum!

Beauty Fave: Bold Pink Lips


A bold, pink lip is EVERYTHING! I just love a really rich, strong pink lip shade. It brings out the Barbie doll in everyone and can really make you stand out! So many celebrities like Rihanna and Emma Stone have been spotted rocking the girly shade. Makeup artists also used it for their spring runway makeup looks! Two killer lipsticks that I love by Wet n Wild are Passionate, Mauve Outta Here, and 525D. I wear these ALL the time! My personal fave, which I'm wearing in the top left photo, is by Make Up Forever Intense Rouge. The color is so bright and intense and makes such a statement! However, I'm not exactly sure if they make the exact shade that I wear anymore. It's actually a sample and has lasted me a long time but as soon as it's over I will be checking to make sure they did not discontinue it. From light pink to fuchsia there are so many options to choose from. Every girl is bound to find her perfect shade!

Fun Fall Trend: Moto Jackets

I absolutely love moto jackets! They are so badass and turn every outfit into total perfection! Leather is huge this fall and what better way to work the leather trend than with a dope jacket? Biker jackets are timeless and you can literally wear them with any outfit! They can toughen up a really feminine outfit like Taylor Tomasi Hill did in the bottom right photo or complete a really grungy look by adding the right touch. I also love the fact that both women and men can wear them because I do love my menswear. Solange wore a really cool white leather jacket that is most certainly a must-have and you can even layer it up or throw a hoodie on underneath when it's really cold out. I adore my leather jacket that I purchased this fall at H&M. I might even say I wear it TOO much! hehe

Have Fun with Neon!

Neon has been a HUGE trend this year and I can't get enough of it! We have seen it everywhere from clothes to bags and shoes and the trend seems to be staying around for a lonnnng time! Kim Kardashian was spotted wearing this fun neon dress while Jason Wu sent this gorgeous gown down the runway for his Spring 2012 runway show! My faves are neon green and neon pink right now but I just love any shade of it really. If you were rocking it this summer, you can definitely incorporate those summer pieces into your fall wardrobe like I did with my neon green sweater from Forever 21! Don't be color shy and have fun this season by adding some serious color to your wardrobe!

Sunny Sunday!


(pants and jacket from H&M, black v-neck shirt from Forever 21, Asos scarf, Rainbow shoes)

I spent the entire day with my younger sis accompanying her to a highschool open house and walking around the city enjoying the gorgeous weather we had yesterday! I wore a light jacket but made sure to wear a heavy scarf to keep me warm. This was probably one of my most comfortable outfits and it was perfect for strolling around the city. Hope you like!

Twitter Beauty of the Week!


I was just featured as a Twitter beauty of the week on Wet n Wild's Instagram! I'm a huge fan of Wet n Wild makeup products so I was ecstatic! I love their lipsticks and liquid eyeliner. I use them every time I do my makeup. If you haven't tried their makeup products you are missing out! Their products work just as good as higher end brands for less than half the price!

The Denim Jacket!


I have always been in love with denim jackets! You can wear them in the Spring and Fall and they go perfect with almost anything. They add a cool factor to your outfit and what's best is you can add studs and pins or even rip them up to turn them into your own little DIY project. Kanye West and Kate Lanphear are obviously fans of denim and who wouldn't be with so many variations of the trend. They come in so many different shades and you can find them everywhere. A few years ago I purchased a denim jacket in a light wash from H&M that I'm still obsessed with and wear all the time. Shortly after I purchased it I saw photos of Kim Kardashian with the exact same jacket on! My most recent denim purchase as you can see on the bottom left in the photo was from the Salvation Army thrift store for only 2 dollars! It's a darker blue and says Planet Hollywood on the back and looks really old school just the way I like it ;) Proof that you can find a good denim jacket anywhere!

Today was so windy out I could barely keep my hair out of my face for more than two seconds. Stepped out on my sundeck to take a few photos and now I'm getting ready for a couple of events I'm heading out to tonight. Hope it's a good time! xoxo

Birthday Girl!

Today is my birthday and I feel so happy, healthy, and blessed! I was able to spend the day with family consuming abnormal amounts of cake, candy, and ice cream! Overall, it was a great day and I'm glad to have another successful birthday to add to my list of wonderful birthdays.
