Mingling Mondays: Awards Season 2013 ~ It's Oscar Week

It's Oscar Week! Throughout this week celebs will hit a number of luncheons, gifting lounges and more. The Academy Awards will air at 8pm this Sunday with red carpet coverage starting at 1:30pm! We'll be tweeting talking about who's wearing what and a number of other tidbits. Leading up to it, come here to find out how to get red carpet worthy whether you're attending viewing parties or want to know how to glam it up for a major red carpet event or times when you know that all eyes will be on you in casual settings. This falls into my belief of "nuvo glam" I love how you can mix fabulous items with casual pieces (which Oscar Week is full of a number of activities that are relaxed) or key pieces that work well with glam.

Over the last few days, it's been all about NYFW (continue on with Fashion Week by checking out what's going on in London) and I love that although there are a number of items that aren't available until Fall 2013 - many of the beauty looks can definitely be rocked now! As you know, I covered Houghton Backstage and fell in love with the hair (Relaxed Elegance) that was created for the show by. Once again, I had to share the looks that were created via their Lead Stylist Joseph DiMaggio and the rest of his L'Oreal Professionnel team with its new product, True Grip.


To create this look, DiMaggio poured a liberal amount of the NEW L’Oréal Professionnel True Grip Texturizing Powder ($15; .25 oz.) into a bottle of L’Oréal Professionnel Volume Expand Leave-In Spray ($24.00; 4.3 fl. oz.) for grip, hold and foundation to the style. The mixture was sprayed generously from roots to ends. After drying hair with blow dryer, hair was then split into three sections, two over the ears and one over the nape. The back section was then braided, then twisted and pinned into a low bun.

DiMaggio then pulled one of the remaining side sections towards the neck while loosely covering the ears, wrapping hair under and around the bun. The same step was repeated for the remaining side section. L’Oréal Professionnel Infinium 3 hairspray ($24.00; 11 oz.) was then spritzed all over for hold, and finished-off with L’Oréal Professionnel Perfect Shimmer ($21.00; 5.8 oz.) for shine. “I love the look Joseph created,” said Polk who who has collaborated with the brand’s session styling team for three ready-to-wear seasons. “Joseph and I created a pulled-back look for the show that was clean and simple but had slight notes of the [collection’s] inspiration.”


As many of you know, I don't wear earrings; however, there are times when they are a must and with this look for your hair, you have to adorn your neck with more than necklace. I have rounded up some fabulous earrings that are perfect from running to lunches and of course the red carpet of the Oscars! Olivia Collings ($10,450; Barneys New York) has fabulous paste earrings that are antiqued and have a great chandelier effect. If you're looking for something a little edgy, including Ileana Makri ($2,409; Matches) white gold and diamond snake earrings. For a pop of regal color, add Irene Neuwirth ($9,260; Barneys New York) with these Boulder Opal Long Earrings. One of my favorites in this spread for a fun gifting lounge, these Small Abalone Shell Earrings in 10kt Gold by Annette Ferdinandsen ($1,230; Ylang 23) are amazing to wear with fun dresses and jeans. For sheer elegance, these diamond earrings from Me & Ro ($900; Barneys New York) are a great way to add a touch of chic to your look. Finally, fabulous bling can be found with Fabrizio Riva ($1,395; Barneys New York) in brown diamonds which are so decadent with these long earrings.

Treasure Tuesdays ~ Accessorize Your Bikini

Every time you're out and about, it's an opportunity to allow your favorite accessoires to come together! I love that swimwear becomes a blank canvas to show your glam side. When I rock my swimwear, I'm all about my Miami - SoBe style! I start over with my Norma Kamali classic bikini with a plunging neckline (I have a green kelly one but love this one in black) and pair it with this Mawi Single Dome Necklace with Spikes. Slip on this Jamie Joseph moonstone ring available at one of my favorite online retailers, Ylang 23! Finally if you spiked your necklace, spike and bling out these heel-less wedges by Giuseppe Zanotti Design are the perfect shoes to rock out to when you're pool side or on your roofdeck and only want to enjoy the sun (with SPF of course) and no interest to pop into the water!

Swoonfest Saturdays: Spring Break 2011 ~ Vitamin A

There is something about a stark white bikini on tanned, olive, caramel or any number of the gorg brown shades that many rock that makes you want to run to your nearest oasis! When you have an all white look in the summer, that's when I definitely get excited to wear gold. I don't wear this tone a lot but we all have our bling out moments and this is such a case. Vitamin A is one of my favorite brands as they always have such a fun suit that's perfect for your global beach destination. Of course, I'm charmed with Alex and Ani and this bunch of bracelets will not go unnoticed on your arm. Finally, show everyone that you rock, own and have stock in your divalicious card by rocking these sky high gold Donna Karan shoes and with the subtle bling by Cathy Waterman available at my fave boutique, Ylang 23!

Treasure Tuesdays: Spring Break 2011 ~ DiNeila

Spring Break 2011 looks kicked off yesterday and we're always dreaming of the next best thing in bathing suits. Now I am a bikini kind of girl - I love two pieces! So when I see a one piece that catches my eye, then of course I have to share it! I'm loving this Orange Tie Dye suit by DiNeila. It screams SoBe, St Barths, Rio and Negril just to name a few locales. This is definitely perfect for those cabana parties or events where it's seriously bathing suit only. I'm also think that when it comes to SoBe, it's all about Nikki Beach and I love the hues and angles in this suit! So to ensure that you look like the sun baby for sure, pair this up with the phenomenal lamb leather cuff by Yasu Jutaro which doesn't restrict your wrist and only feels better with each wear as well as rocking Annette Ferdinandsen's Mexican Fire Opal Egg Ring available at Ylang 23. Of course, no look is complete without cork heels and how can you not love Christian Louboutin in this department? Finally, when you simply want the bag that has elegant edge, finish it off with this super cute satchel from L.A.M.B.!
