Is it just me, or has purple been having a moment for quite some time? Lavender is the big thing this summer, bringing my latest favorite beauty essentials, Essie Lilacism, MAC Hang Loose Mineralize Blush Duo, and Revlon Lilac Pastelle lip gloss. I’m even more excited for what purple obsessions are waiting for us in the Fall – specifically the NARS’ high voltage Daphne eyeshadow and Chanel Paradoxal nail polish (find it now, or get ready to spend some late nights scouring Ebay). Purple toned makeup looks are my favorite right now, adding a bit of coolness to highlight the bronzed skin of summer – the healthy faux bronze of course…
Purple is a color of all seasons, and looks great on just about anyone. It’s fun to bring out the lilacs and lavenders of summer like this soft, breezy tunic from Calypso, so easily paired with white shorts or ripped jeans and caviar brown sandals.
Eggplants and jewel toned royals are always on the horizon for fall. For a twist on a neutral handbag, make a deep purple one your go-to. It’ll match all your blacks and browns for the season.
Owning a fashion business is a dream-come-true adventure that admittedly doesn’t come without its fair share of challenges which require many late nights and venti Starbucks Zen teas to get through. But The Life Styled philosophy is all about taking every step to make your life exactly what you want it to be – whether that’s with your career, your style, or both simultaneously. Along with the uphill challenges come rewards. It’s a nice feeling when someone wants to recognize your venture, and share it with others. That’s why The Life Styled is thrilled to be featured in CRAVE: The Urban Girl’s Manifesto, a fabulous by-city guidebook filled with more than 125 stylish women-run businesses in every city. We’ve been lucky enough to make an appearance in both the Los Angeles and Twin Cities versions, and in such amazing company!
“CRAVE is the most unique and stylish guidebook for city living. It is a celebration of women entreprenesses that showcases some of the most creative, interesting, and gutsy proprietors throughout your city. Let it introduce you to a fabulous new designer, to a miracle-worker masseuse, to a confectionery queen, to the amazing women around town who will help satisfy your next craving.
We could all use a getaway, and CRAVE believes that you don’t need to be a jet-setter to have a little adventure—there’s so much to explore right in your hometown! Whether it’s to hunt for a birthday gift, indulge in a spa treatment, order a bouquet of flowers, or sip happy hour cocktails with the girls after work, let CRAVE be your inspiration to turn to for a one-of-a-kind, hometown journeys and experiences.”
