Fallin' for Flowers!

Just because the trees are barren doesn't mean you can't put some spring into your wardrobe.  Usually blossoming on garments in the spring, these creations are more than a gala of garden inspired apparel. The fall/winter fashion has taken on the floral frenzy making an easy fit meshing autumnal hues and warmth by adding fur or sweater to the mix.

I am totally mesmerized by the Scarlett Johannson ad campaign for the Ethereal Beauty Collection Dolce and Gabbana cosmetic line.  Scarlett looks as if she's swathed in a bed of black roses.  I love the look in this ad campaign light sheer effect  as opposed the usual crimson palette most turn to  for the colder months.  The collection's infusion combine influences from classic Hollywood muses like Marilyn Monroe and Jayne Mansfield, palettes containing blue hues pulled from a Meditterrean sky, then packaged in gold encasements and black velvet sacks like taking a trip to a Sicilian isle.  Also an added luxe indulgence to their lipsticks is a rose scent! I mean who doesn't smell their lipstick!

Dolce and Gabbana makeup line does have a color range for the virgin or vixen in you.  I just wish, I too, could have Pat McGrath apply my makeup so flawlessly. Price ranges from $20 for nail lacquer to $59 for powder foundation.  Not bad for a little bit of luxury. What an experience for bpjs (beauty product junkies) to behold! Personally, I have not plunked down any of my hard earned dollars to purchase anything. I hope to do so, or even possess greater hope to get free samples!
