Month: August 2012

Accessory Friday: Leaf collar necklace

The collar necklace is making a big splash this fall, and I love this delicate style from Forever 21:

It’s not so big and chunky that it screams “Trending!”, so you can still wear it after autumn is over. And I love jewelry with leaves or other natural motifs, anyway, trend or no!

Nail Polish of the Month: Wet N Wild Wild Shine Nail Color in Sunny Side Up

I’m in the mood for one last burst of color fun before summer ends. Hence, this month’s nail polish pick, a light, bright orange that makes me happy just by looking at it:

Wet N Wild Wild Shine Nail Color in Sunny Side Up; $1, drugstores

This is a very light shade, so I applied three coats to get an opaque finish. I also started with one coat of base coat and finished with a couple of coats of top coat for staying power.

Max and Jiao with their HSUS fur-free signs

As I promised earlier this week, here are pics of Max and Jiao with their fur-free HSUS signs, to promote H-Couture 2012. (H-Couture is the Humane Society’s annual fur-free fashion show; it takes place next month in Los Angeles.)

You can head over to the Humane Society’s website (humanesociety.org) to print out your own signs and upload them to the HSUS Flickr photo roll. (Psst…if you have a pic of your pet with their HSUS sign, I’d love to see it, too!)
