Nail Art

Last week I have a nail art trend a whirl... To be safe I started with the easiest thing I saw on Pinterest, the multicolored nails look.  Pretty much you just pick a finger and paint it a different color than the rest.  Not quite "nail art" but for the sake of this post we will count it! :)

Next, I found this Coral stripe version with a great OPI nude base color. Again on Pinterest!

Feeling gutsy, and armed with my scotch tape and  $1 e.l.f. polishes from Target I went to town.  Being impatient I didn't let the base coat (Desert Haze) dry completely before I put the tape down and of course it peeled off bits when I removed it.  Round 2 I waited for the base coat to dry before taping them and it actually worked!  Good things do come to those who wait :)

 Now obviously I realize this isn't salon quality, but I don't think it qualifies as a pintrosity either.  So for this week I will enjoy my $2 home mani until I find my next pinspiration!

Celeb Style - Navy Blazers

I'm sort of in love with blazers... No matter who is wearing them I always feel as if they pull their outfit together and make them look very polished! With that in mind I've found some celebrity inspiration and recreated their looks with our new Lucky B Navy Blazer ($48)

The Blazer : Timing-  $48

Celebrities rocking their blue blazers in a variety of ways :  Kate Moss, Rachel Bilson, Sophia Bush & Jessica Biel

Paired with a simple white V-neck and dark denim.

Add an infinity scarf for an easy afternoon look for fall. 

Kick it up a notch with a big statement necklace.

Add a printed blouse for a pop of color.  A great blazer can take those spring and summer tops straight through Fall!

Pair with a jeweled collar blouse and tulip skirt for a great work option this holiday season!

One Blazer, endless options :)  Now Available at Lucky B Boutique

The Look 4 Less - Celebrity Movie Style

I've yet to catch the movie Morning Glory with Rachel McAdams, but I have seen many pictures of her nude Fendi dress around the web.  Since most of us can't afford the pricey designer version I've put together a couple of options with our Lucky B version (which is only $88)!

First I've paired it with a cropped jacket (similar to Rachel McAdams) but in black ($38) ... Since our version is strapless I added a chunky seed bead necklace ($24).

This would be a great look for a holiday party or evening out on the town.  It would also make an adorable prom dress :)

Next, I paired the dress with a cream open knit sweater with 3/4 sleeves ($58).  Since this look is a little more girly I added a delicate antique gold bird necklace ($18). 

I think this look would be adorable paired with tights and ballerina flats.  Since the bodice of this tulle tube dress is fitted, you can pair any cropped sweaters or even a belted cardigan for Fall.
