Taylor Swift’s Met Gala Beauty & Fashion

Everyone’s buzzing about the 2015 Met Gala – it IS one of the biggest fashion events of the year, after all – but we can’t forget one of the event’s biggest hits with Taylor Swift’s Oscar de la Renta dress last May.

met-gala-2014-taylor-swiftWow. I mean… let’s just take a moment. The train. Jesus. It’s like a wedding dress. Is it rose? Carnation pink? Whatever it is, it’s utterly gorgeous.

This is a far cry from her much younger-feeling 2013 Met Gala look (which I think could have worked with more posh hair): Continue reading “Taylor Swift’s Met Gala Beauty & Fashion” »

Eat, Drink & Be Classy: Vanderpump Housewares

Life isn’t all diamonds and Rosé… but it should be. At least, that’s how Lisa Vanderpump and I feel. Lisa’s resume isn’t limited to restauranteur and RHOBH unprecedented-slap recipient; she’s also a lovely interior decorator, as demonstrated by SUR, Pump and Villa Blanca.

I have a major girl-crush on Lisa, so when I found out she had a housewares line, I got giddier than Giggy in a new pair of bedazzled suspenders.

Lisa Vanderpump Housewares Review Bristol CandleI fell in love with the entire line, but a few distinct pieces really bewitched me: the Bristol candles (pictured right), with hammered aluminum, really had an elegant look.

I also really adored the Anastasia Tray (pictured below), which adds the perfect touch of bling to any setting: Continue reading “Eat, Drink & Be Classy: Vanderpump Housewares” »

Sassy Dove is on Vine!

I know the rest of the free world is already filled with Vine users, but up until recently I wasn’t one of them. Now I’m a bit of an addict… But it took some force to get me there.

This particular force was inflicted by Asha Butterflys, who attended my #SassyGlam house party and witnessed what happens when Cailin has too many cocktails.

Of course, she shared some of this event with the world via the wonder that is Vine: Continue reading “Sassy Dove is on Vine!” »

Wanna hear some of the best news so far in 2015? I am, as of this very moment, enjoying my first actual Spring Break in a very, very long time.

Of course, I’ve matured beyond the Cancun days of my youth (although let’s be real, on my budget it was Crystal Beach on the Bolivar Peninsula south of Houston). Continue reading “Gimme That Hair: Styling The Perfectly (un)Done Beach Wave” »

#OOTD: On Wednesdays, We Wear Pink. #GoCommando

If you watched the Oscars and saw any of the afterparty fashion, you noticed a trend. Our gals were, uh, naked. And good for them, because they can pull it off better than I can – but the cutout sheer panels that took over the red carpet left little to the imagination and zero room for undies. And that’s an even scarier thought for many of us than showing our bodies.

Still, I’ve experimented with a little commando-ness here lately (mostly for utility purposes – underwear is not optimal post-spray tan), and it’s very freeing. I wondered: could I take this idea to a real outfit? Like one you wear outside, at night?

Oh yes I could. On Wednesdays, we wear pink. Continue reading “#OOTD: On Wednesdays, We Wear Pink. #GoCommando” »
