There are few beauty trends that leave me perplexed, and grey nail polish is one of them. On the one hand, I’m ready for everyone to give Lauren-Conrad-gothic-nails a rest, and grey seems the easiest next step. But I’m not totally sold on whether it’s at all flattering on hands and toes. I really want to love this shade: It’s great on clothes, and it’s been my eyeliner shade of choice as of late–Motives® Khol Eyeliner in steel, to be exact
What do you think? Is grey the new black?

Big labels like YSL, Bottega Venetta, Louis Vuitton and so on choose a bag each season to be the “It” bag for their collection that they show in all their ads and celebrities wear around town and all the magazines shoot. This bag turns into the must have for the season. This is a great marketing strategy, but this might not necessarily be the perfect bag for your wardrobe. I think an “It” bag should be a bag that is versatile, that you can invest in and that you will wear with different looks and you can combine with different colors. Check out this picture of Hilary Duff with her “it” bag from Linea Pelle. You can wear it many different ways- across your body, as a tote and it looks like it can fit all a lot inside. A great work to weekend bag.
If you like Hilary’s bag, you can snag one at Singer22.com. Do you already have an “It” bag? Share your fashion find with me!
