NYFW S/S 2012: Blue lips on the runway

I’ve been trying to catch as many runway shows as possible but that’s like…virtually impossible. I’ve only been able to get in 3 so far. But thanks YouTube and Maybelline, I’ve been peeping what looks to be gorgeous beautiful and fashion trends for Spring 2012. It’s only been Day 2 of this season’s Fashion Week and I’ve already made a commitment to step my game up in the Fashion Department. If you know anything about me, my fashion sense is practically non-existent. That said, while the Richard Chai show had beautiful looks (although, not many were my style), it was the makeup that took me away.

A few of the models were found sporting blue lips. Could this be a new trend? Who knows. I know one thing though…I wouldn’t be afraid to rock it. What about you? Would you wear a blue lip color?

Beautiful mishaps with BAND-AID

I know, I know. I’ve got some ‘splanin’ to do. But honestly, are you surprised that I’m walking around with a bandage on my cheek? This is me we’re talking about. I’ve been known to do a lot of loco-ness. But I promise you…there is a purpose behind the BAND-AID. Speaking of which, who knew a BAND-AID could be so…fashion forward? Those were my thoughts when I first laid eyes on the brand’s bandages designed by fashion designer Cynthia Rowley.

How ca-ute, uh? Sold anywhere BAND-AID brand products are sold, you can grab a box of these the next time you  you have a fashion malfunction. And considering I’m Clumsy Clara, I HAVE to have a box of  bandages on deck.  Have you ever had a super fly pair of shoes that do a number on your legs? Protect ’em with a BAND-AID.

And don’t even get me started on paper cuts. I get those suckers alllll the time. But at least now I can heal in style.

 

In.love. Scoot over Hello Kitty BAND-AIDs. There is a new crew in town.

Yep, I keep BAND-AIDs in my glove compartment. I know, I know. 8) As a Fashion Emergency Blogger Ambassador, I’ve got to keep you up on what’s going on with BAND-AID. They are currently running a Fashion Malfunction Contest on Facebook. Share your embarrassing fashion mishap and be entered to win a $2,500 Cynthia Rowley fashion spree and styling session.

And if you’re in NYC for Fashion Week, be sure to visit the Glambulance.

This repurposed ambulance is rollin’ with a hair stylist, seamstress, make-up artist and First-Aid supplies. You can catch these beauty box on wheels in New York City’s 65th and Broadway from 1pm-9pm.

And don’t forget to follow the fabulous Cynthia Rowley on Twitter and follow Glambulance updates using the hashtag #glambulance.

Ciao pretties!

These feet were made for walkin’…but comfortably.

It’s a well known Clumps of Mascara fact, that I am NOT a fan of heels. And not because I don’t want to be stylin’ and profilin’ and standin’ close to 6-feet tall in heels that elongate my legs. But let’s face it, heels are not meant to be comfortable. Prolonged wear of ’em can’t possibly be good for our toes, feet, ankles and legs. And because of that, I like to rock comfortable and cute flats and sandals as often as I can.

Got a smart phone? Love Macy’s?

If you’ve answered yes to both questions, then I’ve got somethin’ for you…

By the way, the above is meant to be said in a cheesy game show host voice. Kind of like Allen Ludden in Card Sharks. LOVED that show.

What was I talkin’ about again? Ah yesss…Macy’s has just won my heart. Aside from being a beauty girl, I’m a tech-y geek beyond belief. Imagine my surprise when I found out that Macy’s will be introducing personalized QR codes that will deliver videos directly to your phone. Don’t believe me?
