I Made Out Like A Bandit at DSW!

Unfortunately, I inherited flat, fat feet from Mama Spoiled Pretty. So shoe shopping for me is usually an exercise in futility.

So when I need a new pair of kicks, I like to hit up DSW – where I am free to try on shoes to my heart’s content. No joke, there have been times when I’ve tried on 100 pairs of shoes, only to walk out of the store empty-handed. That’s how hard to fit my feet are.

But yesterday, I visited my local DSW (in Willow Grove, PA) and made out like a bandit! Check out my footwear windfall:

Steve Madden Hoop Suede Flat Ankle Boot, $49.95 (originally $75)

Blowfish Fantum Zippered Cuff Boot, $59.95 (originally $79)

Steve Madden Stella Pointed Toe Ruffle Flat, $44.95 (originally $65)

Anne Klein Basha Dress Flat, $34.95 (originally $79)

As if these prices weren’t mind-blowing enough, I also cashed in a DSW Rewards coupon I received in honor of my birthday (which is this Thursday).

New York Fashion Week: Alice & Olivia, Spring 2010

For the Alice + Olivia Spring 2010 presentation, MAC created two very different makeup looks. The first was a black super smoky eye, worn by The Plastiscines, who performed at the show.

The models, on the other hand, sported two different shades of pink shadow (Rosy Outlook and Perky) along with a white shade (Just So). Irridescent powder was applied to the cheekbones and the inner corner of the eye. Cream blush in So Sweet was blended onto the cheek, and the above pink shadows were blended together and layered on top. The brow shape was kept natural and kept in place with brow gel.

Angel Lipstick (Kim Kardashian‘s fave) was applied to lips, with Lipglass in Underage and English Accent on top. Silver dust was also mixed with moisturizer and applied to the entire body, for a ethereal glow.

Key Makeup Artist Nadine Luke emphasized that the look flatters a wide range of complexions, as evidenced by my backstage photos.

“The hair for Alice + Olivia is a crossroads of edgy and girly,” said Frédéric Fekkai. “We created a look for funky, confident women.”

Andre Rodman, Lead Stylist for Fekkai added a fun, punky edginess to the s weet, girly looks at the Alice + Olivia show. To get the look Andre twirled crimped hair around a double barreled iron in a figure eight pattern. He then pulled the front piece to the side, smoothed it with Fekkai Coiff Magnifique Ultra-Light Finishing Crème and secured it neatly with jeweled pins. Finally, Andre set the style using Full Blown Volume Lifting Hairspray.

Alice + Olivia for Payless shoes

How darling are these labels?

These boots were made for Payless…and that’s just where they’ll be.
One of these days these boots are gonna come on home with me.

Impossibly chic booties – for cheap (also for Payless)!

Katty Besnard, lead singer of the Plastiscines (note the sooty black eyes)
