Last Friday I decided to venture off to the popular LV exhibit to see what they have to offer and believe me they did not disappoint. It is only right the exhibit takes place in New York being it is the Fashion Capital (some may argue that) so us New Yorkers for sure can appreciate the latest fashion exhibit in town. Located at the American Stock Exchange, the layout of the exhibit is breathtaking. Every room has a different story that is well executed. The historic journey of the luxe brand, designed by Robert Carsen, is divided into ten chapters, one of which is entirely devoted to the United States of America and New York City (duh). The tour opens with the most symbolic object of the House: the trunk, a model fashioned with contemporary flair, embodying the iconic hallmarks and bold spirit of Louis Vuitton. The exhibition features objects and documents from the Louis Vuitton heritage archives. (more…)

Color cosmetics brand Winky Lux opened their first store at the beginning of the month and now they can call the lower east side of New York City their home. Launched two years ago,the high pigmented color cosmetics is super affordable which outside of the colors is the amazing part. The NYC store opening was bright and packed with beauty lovers trying out products and sipping cocktails.
The products are cruelty-free, paraben free, phtalate free and non-toxic which is why it’s my new Spotlight makeup brand for November. I was super excited to find a Matte Lip Velour in the gift bag when I got home in Smitten color which is such a great daytime Nude for an effortless look. You can get yours at 69 Ludlow Street.
