Style Highlights: Emma Watson

Emma Watson in Elie Saab [left] and Botegga Veneta [right].

Emma looks stunning in this off-white Elie Saab design. The cut is simple--allowing the delicate details to shine. It truly is an amazing dress. Emma manages not to overwhelm the dress by keeping her makeup and accessories simple.

This Botegga Veneta creation is so unique and fresh. On any other actress it would've probably looked horrible. But there is a certain type of confidence and elegance that Emma possesses that allows her to still look stunning in this dress--even if the bottom half is very reminiscent of a bed sheet. The gold color is really beautiful and Emma copied it with the golden touches to her eye makeup.

Emma looking elegant in black lace and gold. Her hair is loose and tousled to counteract the sleek and classic lines of her dress and accessories. Never one to over accessorize, Emma keeps everything to a minimum and looks stunning. Is it possible for this woman to look horrible?

Time for Emma to sparkle and shine in Balmain dress. It is a young look for a beautiful, young starlet. The asymmetrical cut of the gown adds interest and drama. Emma paired the look with wooden wedges to offset the futuristic look of the dress. Minimal jewelry and slicked back hair--the look is complete!

Essie Nice is Nice Swatch + Review

Another NOTD. It's about time. I recieved this nail polish courtesy of [thank you!] and here is the swatch. It is actually VERY similar to OPI's Rumple's Wiggin'--check out that swatch here--and Essie's Lilacism--I haven't posted the swatch but it's coming soon. You don't need all three. I would only get one.

But even though I have three bottles of essentially the same nail polish. I'm still in LOVE with this color. Lilac is the perfect subtle color for summer, fall, winter, and spring. Maybe I'm a bit biased because purple is my favorite color? But I'm glad that I found a dupe for Rumple's Wiggin' because it was limited edition.

The consistancy is so much better than Borrowed and Blue. It also lasted on my nails for a very long time. Which is an excellent thing because nobody likes chipped nails. No one! I just wish the Essie brushes were bigger...but I think that ship has sailed, no?

Buy Essie's Nice is Nice online or at your local Wal-Mart and Target!

Style Highlights: Emma Watson

In anticipation of the release of the final Harry Potter film [let's have a moment of silence] I decided to blog about Emma Watson's impeccable style over the years. She is not afraid to take chances with style and more often than not, those chances pay off.

Emma Watson is the golden girl of fashion. This Burberry Prorsum dress is perfection! The proportions are perfection. The fabric has the danger of looking a little frou frou but the edgy heels and belt, the chic zipper detail, and Emma's smokey eye makeup keep the look in fashion. There is not a thing I would change. As I said earlier, perfection!

Who said that black is depressing? Emma looks the definition of fun, fresh, and content in this stunning lace and feathered cocktail dress. She accented the monochromatic look with a beautiful and bright poppy pin in memory of those who served and died in battle. Very sweet gesture. It's impressive that she looks incredibly elegant and sassy at the same time.

Emma Watson in Azzaro [left] and Haakan [right].

Ruffles, ruffles, and more ruffles. Emma looks so sweet and beautiful in this black and white Azzaro dress. In an effort to counter-act the frilliness of her dress, Emma chose to wear her hair tossed to the side and with no jewelry. She also chose to keep her look very, very neutral and wear simple black pumps. Seeing that dress on the rack, I never could've imagined it looking so modern and fresh. Brava!

This is a different look for Emma. Normally she likes to look approachable and sweet. This Haakan look is a complete 180. Emma sleeked her hair to the sides to give a androgenous and slightly harsher look. Her brows are more defined that usual, although she kept the rest of her look fairly neutral. As is the rest of her outfit with the nude dress and shoes. Beautiful.

What to Wear on a Summer Date

Today is another "how to" post. I got an email yesterday from a familiar person to Viva La Fashion. Abby, the girl from my What to Wear on a Casual Date post, wrote me again. She says:

"Hey, Lane. It's me, Abby. I wrote you before and you were a big help. Thanks for that. I'm still dating the boy that made me write you. We're happy. But now that summer is here, we're going to be spending some time at the beach/sea side. What can I wear to the beach? I want to look fun and cool and casual. The Polyvore set helped me last time. Could you do that again?"

I was so excited when I got this email. That I knew I had to write a post.

Casual Summer Date

Casual Summer Date by randon1993

Dressing for summer is the best because there are little to no limitations. I remember from the last time Abby wrote me that she didn't like wearing black and so I decided to keep that in mind when I created this set. I started with the Tucker top because it was light, perfect for the summer heat, and the color was bold. It is hard to go too bold in the summer months. Always possible. Just hard.

Jean shorts seemed like the next plausible step. Every girl should have a pair of great denim shorts. Every girl should also have a pair of comfy sandals. I don't think that was a very controversial statement. During the summer I LIVE in my shorts and my sandals/flats. It's so bothersome to wear socks. If I can avoid doing so, I do.

Next I paired this beautiful and drool-worthy Marc by Marc Jacobs bag that matches perfectly with the strappy sandals. Finally, in accordance with my earlier statement, I added some fun but subtle jewelry. I am obsessed with this Kate Spade bow ring ever since I saw Ingrid wearing it. So cute! And that bumble bee necklace adds a bit of color to the look without going overboard.

Abby and I have talked through email for a while and her style is more subtle and subdued. I hope this helps Abby! And thanks for writing. Also, check out my How to Make Crocs Cute, post because that is another super cute summer look. I'm thinking about doing a series of posts about dressing for summer in the next few months. Don't forget to leave your advice for Abby in the comments below!
