Into My Fashion and Beauty Treasure Chest...My Top 10 Fashion and Beauty treasures

Photo from: Tumblr

Darling Devotees,
Lately I've been looking to shake up my style a bit. I'v been Boho-Whimsical quite steadily for almost two years now and I feel like a change. I was thinking something with more of an edge and I know that a more chic style has been appealing to me too. But I can't totally leave bright colors alone either. Oh decisions! Anyway, I don't know why but lately I keep getting asked that really odd question about what you would take with you on a deserted island if you could only take 3 things. I still haven't come up with an answer but it did make me what the key elements of my personal style are and this list is what I came up with.

1. Cocktail Rings: I love all rings and own quite a few but I especially love cocktail rings! When it comes to jewelry on me I've discovered that bigger is better. My favorite ring is a big and beautiful gold flower ring I got from So Good Jewelry.

2. All up in your face prints: Polka-dots, stripes, florals, plaid, separately or all together I love them all.

3. Scarves- I must own about 10 and although I don't mean to perpetuate the European style stereotype I'm pretty sure this is something I acquired from the Swiss.

4. Anything in Purple and the Aqua Blue- Teal Spectrum: My room and wardrobe are covered in these two (three?) colors.

5. Vests: I think its amazing how these tiny pieces of clothing can instantly change a whole outfit.

6. Boots: I love boots so much if I could I would wear them everyday.

7. Cleanser: Although, I don't wear make-up most days cleaning my face with an alcoholic cleanser before I go to bed helps me keep my skin smooth and pimple-free.

8. Black mascara, and eyeliner: It's the gypsy in me that makes me love this.

9. Glossy lip balm: What I wear to balance the effect of my lined eyes.

10. Red Lipstick- If you are going to do something, might as well do it right.I rarely wear lipstick because I prefer to do my eyes but I just can't resist the chicness of red lipstick. It just screams style.

Love you all and Stay inspired,

P.S. So let me know what you think. What are your key fashion and beauty elements? Feel free to let me know in the comments below.

Looks like your gypsy inspiration is working well! I would like to master black eyeliner, but I'm still working on it.

I think it's great that you know your personal style so well! I also have an affinity for scarves and boots, but have yet to experience the magic of vests. Maybe I'll try one out sometime!

Thanks loves!

Luinae, I have confidence in your abilities :) Zmaga, I don't know why but I feel like it would a punk rock feel to it, with amazing converses and really brightly colored shoelaces featuring. Fashionography, Selina, Ellie and Meg, I really think vests, scarves and boots work extremely well together. I love accessories!

love you all,
