Fashion 101

Instead of the constant bashing that I am sure you all feel I am dishing out, and I hope you can feel the sarcasm in that opening statement, I am going to play nice today. I am going to focus on some of the “BEST BUYS” of the spring season! Are you super excited?

I know I am excited, c’mon shout it out loud from the top floor of Haskell Hall…WE ARE EXCITED and we just can’t hide it!

I am going to just give you a bunch of different products that everyone seems to be stocking up on.

Yes, I know they are a bit “pricey” but again, sometimes you pay for the luxury of the product, but you know as well as I do that you are just paying for the name brand.

I think you can all agree with me that we all can be slaves to the name brand designers with the rest of the world.

Sometimes its just fun to say “Armani” in a complete sentence.

Let’s start out with the what some may call their “calling card” and others may call “hello hangover” our FACE!

The face is the first sign that we may have “indulged” the night before a bit too much. You all know who you are.

Yes, the ones that come to class in sunglasses and hair in a side ponytail with your black X mark on your hand from Flubbs!

So try the hottest new liquid foundation out there, Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk. It is a bit pricey, costing about $55.00 but isn’t your face worth it?

I know mine is…..

Before you put on that silky new foundation, try the Neutrogena Health Defense Daily Moisturizer, which you can pick it up at any drugstore in town.

Now when you are heading out to the drugstore to pick up the supplies for the Friday night Fiesta, pick up some face wash as well. Nothing beats clear pores . . NOTHING!

My next FAVE for spring reminds me of a song. One of the lines is “this is the dawning of the age of Aquarius” which comes from one of the best musicals ever…HAIR!

HAIR HAIR HAIR HAIR….some of you may want to pay attention to this one.

Now, I am all about the blonde hair with the darker color underneath in the back, but you have got to keep up on the roots.

HELLOOOO! ROOTS, yes they give life to a tree, but roots on your head are not supplying you with anything but a reminder to get to the salon!

Try out the new Loreal Professional Colorist Collection, which you can pick up online or at the specialty supply store. Usually costing around $15.00 a bottle, it’s worth the extra few pennies to spend on your mane.

You definitely don’t want to have your hair looking like the horses tail that rolled around in the poo do you?

Here is a little tip for those of you that like to run out at the last minute, and have a few fly aways lingering around. Pack a small hair brush in your bag, and a little bottle of hair spray.

If you are seeing fly aways appear throughout the day, instead of spraying the cement hardening agent directly to your new coif, then just mist the brush with the hairspray itself.

Then brush…it certainly will eliminate the fly aways…and maybe some of the hat hair that some of you are allowing to enter the buildings on a daily basis. Just a thought…….

See, you all know I can be nice about fashion and all that goes along with it. I just want everyone, and I mean everyone, to be the best that they can be.

No, I am not telling you to enter the military, and God forbid you would have to wear camo UGH!

Just take the extra 15 minutes during the morning, throw away the sweatpants and put on some nice jeans, do your doo and put on a fierce face.

Work the weave girls and head out to Huden like the sidewalk is your runway…..

Until next time!!!!
