Sassy Style Watch: Flatforms

Let's just say I was shocked when I saw these. Jaw dropping shocked.

Many fashion magazines, blogs, and websites are reporting that these flatforms are the shoe of the season, the hottest fashion trend, and a perfect way to add inches without being uncomfortable.

But what about being unflattering?

Yes, they definitely add height. Maybe it's because I'm 5'11 so I don't really understand, but is that the kind of height you want? Three to four chunky inches underneath your feet? I don't think so!


This is one fashion trend you won't catch the SassySisters sporting. 

If we want height? We'll be sporting a beautiful platform heel, or a wedge heel. 

If we want comfort? We'll stick with our ever classic ballet flats. 

If we want to be trendy? You might just catch us in a pair of gladiator sandals, oxfords, or even a shoe with the other trend-of-the-moment: cutouts.

Let us know what you think of the current shoe trends and if you will be sporting them!

Kelly's Spa Day!

Today was one of those days where I just did not feel like getting out and about to run errands.  I was perfectly satisfied sitting on my bum catching up on YouTube videos and blogs.  These are the kind of days that are perfect for a DIY Spa Day!

 After about an hour of pampering myself I return to my spot on the sofa and feel quite glamourous sitting there in my PJs watching this week's episode of Glee.  My face was smooth and soft, my skin looked all bronzy and beachy, my hair had a brilliant shine to it, and my nails looked as if I should be a manicurist (ok- that might be stretching it a little!)

 There is something to be said for having these days every once in awhile and doing it yourself- it's so much fun and is so much cheaper than actually going to a spa!  Here is what I used to make me feel glamourous:

L'Oreal Sublime Bronze- This is an airbrush quick-dry self tanner.  This was my first time to use it and so far I really like it.  It dries super fast and has not left any streaks on my skin.  The bottle says to use continuously until you reach your desired tan, but I really like the subtle bronze color it left after just one application!

Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask- This mask states that it helps draw out "deep-dwelling pore-cloggers."   Well, I could definitely use some of that action!  My face felt really smooth and soft after using but I really didn't notice much change in my pores:(

Neutrogena Triple Moisture Deep Recovery Hair Mask- This is a deep conditioner I use several times a week  My hair feels so soft and shiny after using this.  I also seem to think that it styles better right after I use it so I had a really good hair day today- perfect for relaxing on the couch!  Ha Ha!

Rumple's Wiggin' Nail Polish by OPI- This is from the new Shrek Collection by OPI.  It is a gorgeous lavender color that's awesome  for spring and summer.  Two coats and it's a perfect color!

What products do you use to make you feel like a million bucks?

Shiseido White Lucent Brightening Moisturizing Cream

A couple of months ago I started a search for a new moisturizing night cream.  My skin gets so dry sometimes I literally can see flakes coming off of it.  It's like dandruff- only with your face!  It's disgusting.  I can usually keep the snowstorm under control; it's only really bad for a couple of weeks out of the year when the air is really dry.  My face can also tend to look rather dull at times so sometimes it needs a little "picker-upper."  I also have very a very patchy, uneven skin tone with lots of freckles and sun spots.  I try to keep my face looking "peppy" and silky-looking so I love trying out new moisturizers.  I really haven't found my Holy Grail product yet- but I think I'm getting closer!

I did some online searching and read a bunch of product reviews and finally came across Shiseido White Lucent Brightening Moisturizing Cream.  The "White Lucent" line from Shisheido has many types of products- eye creams, cleansers, masks, etc.  The theory behind this line of products- targeted to prevent discoloration and diminish dark spots and uneven skin tone.  The mosturizer, of course, will have the obvious benefit of reducing dryness (and in my case, flakiness.)

When I read about this product I was like, "Come to Mama!"  All the things I need in one product.  Many of the products from this line appealed to me, but I thought it was best to start out with one and see how it goes.  So far, I love it! 

I apply it at night, after removing my make-up and cleansing my face.  I absolutely love the way my skin looks after applying this.  It looks all "lucent-y!"  Ha ha:)  It feels so soft on my face and my skin has this awesome glow to it.  I don't feel as if my skin is as dry in the morning after I wake up when I use this. 

I bought this at Sephora a couple of months ago.  The price did make my cringe a bit when I purchased it; I think it retails for about $60.00.  I do believe it has been worth it.  I'm thinking about purchasing the cleanser from this line as well.  Is it my Holy Grail night cream?  Maybe.......I'm still open to trying out new products, but I would definitely re-purchase this!

My obsession continues...with Gaga!

I have to be honest. The first time I tried on Gaga, I hated it. Crazy talk, right?!? I bought Cyndi (which I adore), so I figured buying one of the new Viva Glam lipsticks was a good deed. Even though MAC donates all of the money to the MAC AIDs fund, I couldn't buy Gaga and never use it! It emphasized the redness in my skin, and didn't seem to look right with the red tint in my hair. If there's one thing I know, it's that I don't want to be "that girl". You know, the one who wears the lipstick color that looks terrible on her, but doesn't know it. So, I passed.

Since we are being completely honest here, I felt guilty for not purchasing it! So, I decided to give it another try. As you guys know, I've recently become obsessed with light pink lipsticks. Girly, fun, playful, yet sophisticated if done correctly- I just can't get enough! I purchased it and told myself there had to be something I could do to make it look decent on me.

I'm very happy to report that I've fallen in love with Gaga. The lipstick.

Alone, it's a vivid pink with cooler undertones that can be a bit hard to pull off. However, expertly applied and paired with the right gloss, it's absolutely gorgeous!

To achieve the look above, I paired it with Utterly Discreet Lipglass, which is a sheer mauve-y purple. It warms the color up just enough to make it wearable, and makes a breathtaking combination. I do have to make sure that I have on enough concealer to cover my redness, but the result it totally worth it.

I couldn't be happier- I did a good thing by purchasing this lipstick. All of the money goes to help with AIDS patients, and I get a gorgeous lipstick that I will actually wear! I also learned my lesson- don't judge a lipstick by the first swatch. Or by a messy application in the store, with bad lighting and no foundation on.

What are your thoughts of Gaga? How do you make it "wearable"? Do you like Cyndi better?

Makeup Minimalist?!?!?

Mother's Day is only two days away! We get to go home (to our hometown) and spend all afternoon and night visiting with our family. Getting everyone together for a meal doesn't happen every weekend- we live about an hour away from the rest of our family. We are extremely close to our family- and always have been. Needless to say, we are super excited!

The big get-together is on Sunday, but our mother is coming to Memphis on Saturday for a lil' shopping trip. If you haven't already noticed, we love to shop! We get it from our momma. Growing up, every Saturday we would get up, watch Friends while eating Grandma's chex mix, then head out to all the sales and clearance racks in town! Ah, good memories!

One thing we don't get from our mother is our love for makeup. She has always worn very little makeup, if any, but she's recently shown more interest in wearing it. We promised her we would show her the ropes- take her to MAC or Sephora and get her a few things she might enjoy. This doesn't mean she's going to be a full blown addict like we are. She's very picky, and we know she'll still be very minimal with her application, so we have to choose her products carefully.

NARS Sheer Glow Foundation, Gobi 1 fl oz (30 ml)She protested at the time, but we have already set her up with Satin Taupe, Girlie, and a 217 brush.  We even had to show her how to apply! Next, we are going to try to find a light foundation that applies easily and doesn't feel too heavy. We are considering recommending Nars Sheer Glow, or even Neutrogena Healthy Skin foundation.
Neutrogena Healthy Skin Liquid Make Up, Natural Beige / 60, 1.0-Ounce Bottle

What do you recommend for a makeup minimalist?
