Borrowed From The Boys: Milan Vukmirovic

Borrowed From The Boys- Milan Vukmirovic

Photographer and creative influencer Milan Vukmirovic has earned his fashion stripes. The Frenchman seamlessly jumps from one endeavour to another (Fashion Photographer, Creative Director- Jil Sander, Co-Founder- Colette, EIC-L’Officiel Hommes, EIC- Fashion For Men) with his elevated-casual style influencing each project through osmosis.

 Are you a fan of Milan’s elevated-casual style?

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is spot-on in this chic Fall look. Opting for cognac boots instead of the expected basic black add interest to an outfit with no apparent accessories.

InstaFashion: My Week In Photos

I’ve been a bad blogger. The time I usually devout to creating content has somehow been overshadowed by squeezing out the last few weeks of summer (and the allure of my badminton rackets…) #majorgeek. I promise to get back on track this week, Fashaloonies! In the meantime, here is my week in InstaFashion!

 Have a fabulous weekend! xx

The Tiny Times: Dainty Watches For Fall

The Tiny Times

Truth be told, I only own 2 watches. One large Michael Kors lucite piece and another small Bulova.  Another truth? I never wear them anymore! Ever since my iPhone and I became full-time lovers, strapping on a watch seems relatively pointless, but these dainty little watches have me thinking twice. For around $100 and under, I think maybe it’s time to revisit the watch.

Are watches still a must for you, or has your iPhone pretty much become the standard for telling time?

Black & Grey

 

Faaa-faaaa-faaaa-allll…..it’s almost here! Scary, I know. To ease the sadness of the impending 8 months of cold weather, I like to focus on the best part of fall: fashion!

Black and grey is my classic fall combo, and with each of these pieces ringing in at under $100, I think (maybe) everything will be ok. (Until the first snowfall…).

Isn’t he lovely? Isn’t he beautiful? David Gandy is as sweet as candy, and his style ain’t too shabby either! Here he is strutting in leather and cotton.

Not too many men could pull this off, but I like this look.

Beauty Bite: Almay Intense Smoky I-Color & Smart Shade Collection Review

Almay Intense I-Color Smoky Collection

 

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of attending the Almay Picnic at The Drake Hotel.

 

The event brought together Toronto beauty bloggers for a fun evening of demos, girl talk and a whole lot of delicious pineapple mimosas. Almay’s amazing makeup artist Jacquie Hutchinson lead us through a series of beauty tips and tricks to achieve the best results with their new line of Smart Shade cosmetics. Eye shadow palettes, skin luminizor, skintone matching foundation, coloured mascara and bright eyeliners were all stuffed into our beauty bags, customized for our own unique skin tone.

 

I was asked to be a demo model for each look, so I shucked off my nerves, downed a delicious mimosa (or 2…) and took my place on the stool to be stripped of all traces of my makeup.

 The Almay Picnic at The Drake Hotel

 Jacquie quickly put me at ease with her hilarious quips about proper makeup application, and by the end of the session I was eager to try out the looks with my own rookie hands.

After trying out some of the products over the past few weeks, I’m happy to report that the application couldn’t have been easier.

 

So, the look:

 

SKIN

Primer: Passing on primer? You’re missing out! The Almay Shade Shade Luminous Primer is my new beauty best friend. To get my look, I used it as a highlighter on my cheekbones and brow bones, and will likely not ever skip this step again. See ya, sallow skin.

Foundation: Almay’s new Smart Shade Anti-Ageing foundation kind of blew my mind. It comes out of the tube a creamy white shade, then matches to your skin tone upon application. Perfect for those mornings when a 5 minute face is really all you have the time (or patience!) to apply.

EYES

Did I mention even the most shadow-phobic gal can apply these products like a pro? It’s true. The Almay Intense I-Color Smoky Collection Trio palettes were developed to specifically suit your eye colour, and are surprisingly flattering on everyone. I tried the Browns (pink) and the Blues (blue) and loved both of them! The look is shimmery colour that you can gradually build up to your preferred intensity. I’ll admit to being skeptical of the potentially tragically 80s blue palette, but it really does wear quite modern and pretty. Consider me converted.

LIPS

The Almay Color + Care Liquid Lipbalm in Just Plum Good is a barely there swipe of colour, perfect to pair with a more intense eye. I personally prefer a more pigmented lipgloss, but with a blue lid, I think this shade was most appropriate. Perfect for that “no-makeup” look.

Ok, so it’s pretty obvious the My Style series on FatFreeFashion has been seriously neglected. Arranging the tripod outside my building or asking my Hubster to take a few pics of me everyday isn’t something that’s easily accomplished, so I’ve resorted to the next best method: Instagram!

Snapping a few #fromwhereIstand and #ootd pics is foolproof (and actually pretty fun!) so all of my outfit shots are there. If you’d like to join me, check out FatFreeFashion on Instagram. If you’re craving another slice of style inspo, but aren’t into Instagram, I’ll be sharing my looks here as a weekly round-up.

Have a great week, Fashaloonies! x
