Stylista Muse

Although it felt like a mild heatwave today here in Southern California, you’d never be the wiser by the looks of this lovely young actress and transplant from London, Natalie Gellar.  Her look is streamlined, modern and feminine.  She is wearing a light cotton tank top with a Zara skirt, a roomy Louis Vuitton tote and Topshop shoes.  The simplicity of this ensemble is the reason I was drawn to it.  There is definitely a place for the ‘over the top’ and eccentric, nevertheless, incorporating great basics like these, adds balance.  Natalie completes her look with a pop of red nail polish…keep on the lookout for this rising star.

Nails…The New Accessory

There is no question that trips to the manicurist have become more of a creative outlet these days.  No longer are the days of the basic mani/pedi, now it’s all about pushing the options to the limit.  Although I adore this look on others, I think I’ll just stick to my basic manicure, being the minimalist I am… anyway, I can always live vicariously through all those risk-takers around me during my visits to the neighborhood nail salon.
