Dior’s Boudoir Beauties

In last week’s ‘Cause She’s A Lady post on how to get the look of Christian Dior’s party-on-the-top, business-on-the-bottom (or vice versa) ensembles from the Fall 2009 Couture collection, I promised to bring you the makeup finds on how to create the beauty looks. There were really two different looks in this collection. The first was a strong, classic retro beauty look with silver eyes, sharp black winged eyeliner and bright red lips.

Christian Dior Fall 2009 Couture

How to get this look:

  1. Urban Decay Cream Shadow in Moonshine, $22 at Sephora
  2. Estee Lauder Gel Eyeliner in Black, $23 at select The Bay counters across Canada for a limited time
  3. Lancome L’Absolu Rouge Lipstick in Absolute Rouge as part of the Gold Fascination Collection, $35 at The Bay counters starting January 1

The second was a softer, though no less stronger,  sugary look with with lilac on the eyes, black winged eyeliner and pale pink or fuchsia lips. Both of these are perfect looks for your holiday parties, depending on whether you want to go more tough vixen or bad-girl-next door.

Sail Away With Lady Dutch

While on a recent walk through The Bay, an unexpected sight sidelined me: A sexy and wearable nautical collection from Lady Dutch. I got that flutter that only a great shopping find gives me. There was red & white gingham, stripes, dark sailor blues and gold buttons – oh my! The Spring 2009 D&G collection came to mind and so did the perfect way for me to channel the French Riviera-inspired runway look.

The price tags were a sweet sight too. I purchased both the denim sailor trousers, which fit like a dream, and the sleeveless tank dress below. Now I’m ready for warmer weather and some smooth sailing.
