August 6th, 2015 by Lifestyle Staff

Last year Louboutin released a line of nail polishes featuring pointed caps, which resembled the designer’s famous high heels. They retailed for a hefty $50, but hey, that’s a whole lot cheaper than $600 shoes. Besides good color, the lipsticks make an interesting statement necklace too! Beauty mavens can wear the tubes around their necks; each cap is threaded with with a small black ribbon.) The colors come encased in a jewelry box and silk carrying pouch.

Mani Monday: Rouge Christian Louboutin Nail Polish Is My New Fall Favorite

October 6th, 2014 by Christen

Nothing makes s woman feel more fierce, confidant and sexy than the right pair of heels. If you’ve ever worn a pair of Christian Louboutins then you know the feeling that can only come from the rouge sole heels.

Now that exact same feeling (and color) can be applied to your fingertips thanks to the coveted Christian Louboutin nail polish line.

Rouge Louboutin… a timeless, vibrant red suited to any skin tone. A true objet d’art of a dramatic 8-inch height inspired by the tallest heel Christian Louboutin ever created- the Ballerina Ultima.

The iconic Rouge is encased in a faceted, weighted glass bottle with an unique ombré effect. The tall slender cap, inspired by calligraphy, turns the application into a luxurious experience, inviting women to take their time.

The custom-designed, patented triangular brush picks up the right amount of formula, without air bubbles, to deliver flawless, chip-resistant coverage.

A highly pigmented, super glossy formula delivers in just two coats the effect of 20 layers of traditional lacquer. Enclosed in a patent leather like finish presentation box with a red reveal.

Overall, the beautiful and highly pigmented Rouge Christian Louboutin nail polish is worth the $50 a bottle price tag only if you adore the color red and worship everything Louboutin. Other than that, I’ve seen my fair share of similar hues from Essie, OPI and more (and when it comes down to making manis last, topcoat 2-3 times a week will be your bestfriend.)

A Few Of My Favorite (SPRING) Things…

March 14th, 2012 by Christen

Springtime is in the air and with it comes my love for everything as light & bright as my surroundings. For as long as I can remember, nothing signified Spring’s truest arrival other than view of highlighted bright blue skies. With variety of haute colors to choose from and experiment in your spring fashion (and accessory) wardrobe – a few of my favorite colors include gradient shades of blue from CAROLINA BLUE, TURQUOISE, SAPPHIRE and more! Mix a few of my favorite colors with one of Spring’s most comfortable dresses and you’ve got a few of my recent looks that you can rock from the office to almost any after-work activity imaginable.

As a long-time fan of Calvin Klein dresses, I’ve trusted them for years to do the trick of enhancing the good stuff while concealing the not-so-good bumps and bulges. From working in the corporate office to a late night out with friends Calvin Klein designs have always been so versitile that they practically go everywhere you can imagine.

Last month, as an attendee of Essence Magazine’s Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon – I opted for the Calvin Klein Shift Dress in Turquoise (well actually I had a little help choosing the dress with a few friends on Instagram and Twitter…)

I decided to accessorize the look with similar look found online and paired the look with nude & gold accents to match a golden California day.

 

Which resulted in this finished California-girl look…

Today, I received so many compliments on the same Calvin Klein Shift Dress in Atlantis (blue) that I had to share! While on the opposite coast, zipping through the streets of New York City for meetings, errands (and a little shopping too…) I paired the same dress with my favorite Diane Von Furstenburg leather jacket & Christian Louboutin Lucifer bow pumps.

Warmer weather gives your a little push to experiment with colors, shapes & silhouettes – so get out there and try out all that this Spring’s fashions have to offer – you may find a new favorite color, silhouette or style that will transcend the seasons and become your signature style for years to come.

 

Are you looking forward to trying specific Spring trends, colors or styles?  Which style are you looking forward to experimenting with most this season?

Foot Pains = Orgasmic Christian Louboutin Pleasure?

October 20th, 2011 by Fashion Staff

Does sharp foot pains send you a orgasmic rush of pleasure?  If so, then you’re the < 1% of women that Christian Louboutin creates his stylish stilettos for…

According to the Daily Mail –  Leg-lengthening, flattering and glamorous, it’s no wonder women love to wear high-heels.

But designer Christian Louboutin believes stilettos have a far more powerful effect on ladies – and their libidos.

Designer of notoriously painful (yet, fabulous) shoes, Christian Louboutin, seems to think the feeling of the female orgasm is similar to the pain experienced from hours of walking in heels: “[W]hat is sexual in a high heel is the arch of the foot, because it is exactly the position of a woman’s foot when she orgasms. So putting your foot in a heel, you are putting yourself in a possibly orgasmic situation.”

The designer recounted a meeting with a French academic to The Sunday Times: ‘She said that what is sexual in a high heel is the arch of the foot, because it is exactly the position of a woman’s foot when she orgasms.

I don’t know about you – but um, orgasms and painful feet never, EVER have any similarities in how they make me feel…EVER!
