Poppy Nude Chiffon Inserts Dress

Poppy Nude Chiffon Inserts Dress

If there is one color I think you should pull to the front of your closet this year, it’s orange. Not only is it my favorite color in general, the more red-orange and tangerine shade is going to be the trendy color of 2012, according to the Pantone Color Institute. And if you’ve followed this blog for some time, you know we have a soft spot for dresses with sexy cutouts and inserts (as seen here, here, and here). That said, I can’t help but love this hot bodycon mini dress by David Lerner. The bright poppy shade is gorgeously off-set by the, very carefully placed, nude inserts along the sides under the bust. Instead of always highlighting my jewelry, shoes, or makeup, I think I have finally found the perfectly bright and bold statement dress to wear out.

NYX Round Lipstick in Circe

NYX Round Lipstick in Circe

For a night out on the town, one of my favorite looks to rock is a deep smokey eye with a nude lip, it just never gets old!  While it doesn’t have unanimous reviews on MakeupAlley, NYX’s Circe shade is one of my go-to nude lipsticks because it’s easily wearable when applied with just a sheer wash of color. When applied in a more concentrated fashion, you get a more bold yet barely there, muted lip that looks killer on a bronzed and contoured face. NYX is well-known as a high quality drugstore makeup brand, and this round lipstick line is one of their best products in my opinion. The lipsticks have a nice creamy consistency to help your lips feel quenched and totally kissable. And at less than $2, how can we say no?

When picking out a color, just be sure to run a quick Google search on shade swatches since the color swatches on Cherry Culture are a little darker than the shades are in real life.

Sam Edelman Roza Leather Pumps

Sam Edelman Roza Leather Pumps

Now here’s a fierce shoe for your Friday, although if you haven’t already seen and drooled over these pumps from Sam Edelman, I’d have to ask what kind of stone it is you’re living under. While they aren’t as extravagant as Christian Louboutin’s version (these, these or these), the backside and heel of the Roza is equally as dazzling, heavily encrusted in spikes, sparkles and studs. This is a statement shoe with a sort of mullet approach – business in the front, party in the back. Wear these pumps with a mini LBD or LWD, or peeking out below skinny jeans or leggings. Dress up with other heavy metal or leather accessories for a sexy biker look, or to channel your inner dom, either way we won’t judge. Whatever you do, just pick these up while they’re still available!

Sexy, sharp, and clean. I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect nude dressy sandal for a while, and boy, am I glad I found these.  They weren’t kidding with the name ember, because this shoe is hot! Cuffed at the ankle in a square punched pattern, this style of sandal slenderizes not only the leg, but the foot as well. The deliciously woody 5″ stiletto heel and 1″ platform pump up the “oomph” factor, and is easily wearable all spring- and summer-long. What better shoe to rock with a mini dress and emphasize your tan? Unfortunately I won’t have these in time for my trip to Miami next week, but they are available for pre-order now!
