Fall is SLOWLY coming on its beautiful way…you may not feel it yet but it is about to come our way. It is a magical time of year and the colors are too! We gradually put away our summer wear and pull out our fall clothes for cooler weather. Look effortless this fall with a few easy pieces in fashion and take care of your skin. Look for the Fashion Group International’s annual fashion event October 20th in Jacksonville Fl  It will have an even more modern edge and be a fashionable fun event. 

Are you a fashionista or beauty junkie than book your date for fashion, beauty, music and fun?

…At the launch of First Coast Fashion week event officially kicking off locally November 10, 2011 and thru the 12th and get a sneak peek into what fashions you will be wearing for now and next year. 

The colors of the season are a mixed beauty bag of tricks!

 Here are a few MUST haves and Must Do’s to update your face wardrobe: 

Skin has never been more in! Take care of it with regular facials and pore refining masks to de-junk your summer skin cells. You will love a body treatment that exfoliates with salt and aromatic nourishing oils. Book a visit in at a SPA for SPA week October 10-16t,2011…LOCALLY at only $50.00 a service. Visit and find a place near you. Save your skin and money too! 

 Ready to wear shades for fall and winter are: nude, crimson red, emerald, cranberry, deep rich blue, caramel, chocolate, taupe, cloud gray, glam gold and sterling silver. 

A mix of matte and shimmer on the face will make you look up to date. Choose which look you are in the mood for that day. 

Smoky eyes are so yesterday. Define your eyes instead with shadow and rich or bright gem colored pencils OR add a touch of black or brown under them.  Black liner is a staple in my makeup kit but jewel tone shades are so much more fun and pretty! Teal, blue, purple and green are there on the shelves waiting for you!

 The Perfect eyebrow is always in fashion. Consult a brow stylist for your updated look.

 For the daring, there is stick on eyeliner created by Dior. Unbelievably. In addition, Paperself black paper eyelashes continue to be in and faux lashes with tiny gemstones on them are too!

 Gloss on with gloss or make a statement in lip stains or bold lipstick shades. Lipstick tattoos are all the rage. Say hello to Violent Lips!

 Shellac nails are in…longer lasting manicures are what its all about these days and in beautiful fall shades! 

Hair is long or short but keep it freshly cut and take care of it. The latest trick products are ones infused with Argon oil for high shine and fly always or frizzies. I love and use it too!

For clothing:

 Have the courage to wear anything Leopard or with leopard in it!

 Brighten up your complexion with polka dots or anything with shiny paillettes or sequins. 

Off with sky-high heels and down to sensible heights that are pretty for our back and feet too says the doctors at locally owner Hands Feet and Beyond Spa. Manicures and pedicures are essential in the cold months too. 

Hose is making a comeback! Warm up to nude hose thanks to the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton. Thank you Kate. I so love a nice pair of light and silky hose. They make me feel polished and pretty. Now that it is going to be colder, you really want to take care and keep your feet warm and moisturized. Black opaque and other textured hose will also be in vogue.  

As you can see fall and winter is filled with a gorgeous assortment of makeup shades and skin treatments and products to take care of your skin. As for fashion its going to be your time to shine and look your best too. Read magazines, attend at least one local fashion event and celebrate the season. Ladies and gentlemen get ready for looking good this fall and it does not have to cost a fortune.When shopping in town my fav’ store is minutes away in sunny Jacksonville.Visiting Florida or live here…they are located now in  Five Points, Fernandina and soon the Beaches…The Palladium has some chic and fab priced fashion gems. Check them out dahlings. Prices and fashions you gotta see to know what I mean. See you at one of their stores this fall?
