6 Must Have Date Night Essentials

Diptyque ‘Roses’ Scented Candle This candle sets the mood, and what’s better than the smell of roses? This is such a beautiful scent; light it before your date!

Calvin Klein Euphoria Parfum This is my go-to scent. Its such a pretty blend of orchids and exotic fruits. It works as an everyday fragrance too, but it perfect for special occasions. I always try different perfumes and keep coming back to this one.

Marc Jacobs Magic Marc’er Precision Pen Nothing is more romantic and dramatic than a good cat eye. Creating the perfect winged look starts with the perfect liquid eyeliner. Some people are scared to try this look, but it is flattering on almost everyone and can be nailed with a little practice. This eyeliner makes it easy, with a thin paintbrush tip that is easy to apply and gives you better control over thick and thin lines.

OPI ‘Got a Date To-Knight’ This is the perfect pinky-blush color that goes with everything you wear. It’s feminine and is flattering on everyone.

MAC ‘The Matte Lip’ Lipstick We love this because it stays put and gives you a great matte look. I hate when I’m having a drink and most of my lip color ends up on the glass rather than my lips. Not the case with this lipstick! It won’t smudge and it comes in a ton of hues.

Adrianna Papell Scalloped Sheath Dress What’s better than a little black dress. In my opinion, you can never have too many, because they work for almost every occasion. You may recognize this one-it was on our favorites list for the Nordstrom sale. And you are in luck because it’s still on sale! It’s selling out fast though so hurry! Some other great little black dress options include this Lace Back Dress {which is also on sale} and this Cold Shoulder dress from Topshop, which is so on trend and gorge.

Trends from Paris Fashion Week…

Paris Fashion Week was last week, and some of the Spring and Summer collections were to DIE FOR. There were several trends that were very prevalent throughout fashion week that we think are going to translate well to ‘off the runway’ for this year, and are super excited to try some of these looks!

1. Sheer Fabrics– This is a huge trend for Spring! Its light and breezy, perfect for warmer weather, and the look is so feminine and romantic. Here Kendall Jenner rocks a sheer top from Chanel.

And here is a white dress from Valentino with sheer cutouts:

2. Feathers & Floral– Feathers and Floral fabrics were abundant on the runways in Past last week. Feathers are so fun and new trend to try to incorporate this Spring and Fall. Elie Saab’s show was full of full, feathered dresses:

How gorgeous is this dress? I could wear it right now!

3. Natural Hair & Makeup– This is a big change from last year, when contouring and highlighting were so popular. Paris really embraced the minimal, natural look with loose and glossy hair and pink-y lips and subdued eyes. Valentino went with softly tousled buns, peachy hues, and bold eyebrows:

Many designers embraced the “less is more” look, with some models walking down the runway with long, naturally styled hair:
