Fringe! Buns! Booties! Plaid! It can’t get here soon enough. While some of my friends are savoring these 90-degree days, I simply cannot wait for fall. I try to eek out a couple more days of bare legs, bright skirts and cotton knits just to be a good sport. But layering weather will be quite […]

For the past several years, I have been lining my eyes with a pencil, focusing on definition with pigment along the waterline. I guess you could call it my signature look.
