Film Noir Photoshoot!

ArseniaAimeeShootB&W

On Christmas Eve, I stopped in to see my amazing friend and genius hairdresser Arsenia Barias at her salon, Altagracia Unisex. I decided I wanted to try something new for the upcoming year and after watching the film for “Water For Elephants” (one of my favorite books of all time), I was very inspired by Reese Witherspoon’s 1920’s/1930’s chic bob!

Hey Sailor Launch Party @ M.A.C. Store in SOHO!

Last night I was invited to the M.A.C. store to celebrate the launch of their latest collection entitled Hey Sailor! I was so excited about this line as it was inspired by the classic American pin-up girls of the 1940’s.

The place was jam-packed with gorgeous gals and dapper boys all decked out in custom sailor hats and nautical attire while the DJ was spinning out The Andrew Sisters, Benny Goodman and other swingtastic tunes. My favorite part of this event was the stunning woman they had tap dancing in the store window. She was dressed in a retro striped two-piece with her patent leather tap shoes and she looked amazing. People were practically pressed up against the glass to snap a photo of this girl!

While I did do my eye makeup before arriving, I made sure to leave my lips bare so I could try on all of the new lip-colours one by one! I have so say that M.A.C. lipstick is one of the best on the market. Not only do they smell like Haagen Dazs vanilla ice cream but their colours are vivid and long-lasting. My favorite shade of the night? Red Racer, although Sail La Vie was a close second. What can I say, I love a red lip!

I ended up running into some old friends and made some new ones while oohing and ahhing over the makeup. Nothing like a little retro glamour to bring fashionable people together! I had a swell time!

Seemed like March 25th couldn’t come fast enough as I have been waiting on pins and needles for Season 5 to finally air for the last 17 months!
