RETRO SLIP DRESS AND DENIM

DSC_6431

One of the perks of doing my jewelry trunk shows is discovering amazing local fashion brands.  Awhile back, I was invited to do an event at the Fashion Incubator in San Francisco (where I continuously discover exceptional talent). One of the other vendors was Evgenia, an FiSF alum. I  have heard of the the lingerie brand before, but seeing the exquisite pieces in person and meeting Stephanie Bodnar, the charming designer behind the brand, made me a huge fan of her brand!
I’m obsessed with the slip dress and it being such a huge trend right now you can find numerous iterations best suited for you. The slinky dress lends itself to countless styling options for day and night. Evgenia’s retro glam design really appealed to the vintage aficionado in me. To dress down  the lingerie inspired piece for day, I paired the Janus Short Gown with a vintage oversized denim jacket and sneakers. The silk and lace bias-cut dress contrasts beautifully with the sturdy jean fabric (this one is really special and was used as a uniform in pre-WWII France). And how gorge is the peek-a-boo French lace waist dotted with stars!
I layered two chunky necklaces and piled on bracelets in mixed metals to counter the feminine, flowy silhouette.

If you love modern lingerie with a retro glam twists designed for the bedroom and beyond, explore the Evgenia collection and enjoy free shipping with code SASHAMAKS0716 thru July 31st.

VINTAGE CAMO JACKET AND SHIRT DRESS

Vintage cam jacket and shirt dress.

The crisp, white shirt dress gets a tough-chic treatment with a camo print. I love the opposite qualities of the masculine print and the fastidious shirt dress. I layered a lion head necklace ( how cool is the antiqued stone finish!) with a gold-tone chain necklace to elevate the print. To emphasize the masculine aspect of the jacket (if you’re on the hunt for some cool vintage pieces make sure to visit Wallflower in the Mission), I paired the look with derbies. A a classic profile satchel by Dooney & Bourke pulls the look together.

SUMMER LOUNGING

Luxe tee and drawsting pants.

Jogger style silk pants, a luxe long sleeve tee and a pair of babouches make for an ideal loungy look.  I piled on the jewelry to give the slouchy outfit an exotic vibe. A quartet of 70s hand painted wood bracelets and a 60s double-strand Lucite bead bib compliment an intricately beaded 80s handbag.

What’s your fave look to lounge in for summer?

LILAC IN LACE

Lace dress and Sasha Maks Vintage rhinestone jewelry.

This lace, lilac dress stopped me in my tracks, while shopping at a new to me vintage clothing boutique in the Mission, Wallflower. I’m inexorably  drawn to shades of purple, lavender and lilac, and to find a dress in that hue in lace ( a major trend for spring) with down to there statement sleeves seemed to good to be true.

I paired the dress with a black slip and lace-up peep-toe wedges to lend the feminine fabric some edge. Layering three necklace, in glass and rhinestones added a dash of formality. The ways to style this dress are endless. A few that come to mind are a skin-tone slip (or with a bra and slip), a strappy nude sandal, over pants, with boho jewelry, layered over a white shirt dress…I can go on and on.

Be sure to check out Wallflower, next time you’re in the Mission, you never know what vintage treasure you will discover.

GLAM MAKEUP HOW-TO BY MV ARTISTRY

DSC_6809
I was thrilled about Oscar de La Renta’s modern, opulent, and glamorous exhibit at the De Young museum this spring. The collection, expertly curated by André Leon Talley, spanned five decades with influences from Spain, Russia, and the East. For the Art Point Gala held on May 7th to celebrate the designer I was lucky enough to borrow a unique gown by Tokyo Gamine, actually a jumpsuit based on a traditional Japanese hakama garment.
For makeup and hair, I turned to the expert skills of of Maria Vartanian of MV Artistry. I wanted a dramatic cat eye, and I love what Maria created, but what impressed me the most is how much attention was dedicated to getting the skin just right. I’m truly inspired and will be shopping for new products to get my beauty arsenal up to speed.

Read on for Maria’s tips on application and her favorite products.
XO Sasha

– I started with cleansing Sasha’s skin with Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micelle Solution, then applying Dermalogica Skin Moist (love Dermalogica products as they work for most skin types out there even the most sensitive. It’s hard to cater to everyone skin type, (being an aesthetician, I’m passionate about the preparation of the skin as it’s the most important part of the makeup application process) followed by Benefit Pore Minimizer then Napoleon Perdis Auto Pilot Concealer for primer.

For the Eyes –

I primed the eyes with Mac Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Soft Ochre – a favorite of mine, been using it for years and nothing seem to compare to other primers as Paint Pot is very silky and glides on easily on all eyelids.
I used Mac Carbon eye shadow with a Mac blending brush 217 and applied it to the outer crease and blended it to the eye shape. Then using Mac blending brush 239, I applied Mac GreenSmoke to the eyelid and blended it gently. Applied a Make up & Glow green pigment (a brand from Australia) on top of that with wetting my brush with some Mac Studio Moisture Fix  with a tapping motion so to get as much as pigment on the eyelid as possible.

 DSC_6689

Lined the top water line with Lord & Berry Kajal Pencilin black and applied mascara to the top & bottom lashes. I used IT Cosmetics Superhero mascara in black. Making sure to apply it from root to tip to get the maximum lift in the eyelashes.

For the face -

I applied Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in 5.5 with a Mac 130 Short Duo Fibre Brush followed by  Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Concealer in Medium Light-Neutral for under the eyes and blended it out with Mac 280 Duo Fibre Blending Brush.
Followed by Mac Mineralize Skinfinsh Natural powder in Light all over the face.

I contoured under cheekbones and around the nose area with Kevyn Aucoin The Sculpting Powder in light and highlighted the cupids bow, cheekbones , chin & nose with Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette in Radiant Finish (favorite product as it caters to every skin tone and can be worn during the day or night without being too much) using a Hakuhodo Contour Brush.

Finished off with a very light application of rosy hue from the Martin Bray Pro Blocks (Dramatic eye,lip & blush) can only be bought in Australia.

TUNIC DRESS AND PLATFORMS: SUMMER STAPLES

Tunic dress and platform sandals.

A graphic print tunic dress is an easy summer staple. A timeless silhouette in a  geo print in black and white is a minimalist canvas for lends itself to layers of chunky jewels. I paired a three strand Anne Klein Couture wood bead and gold-tone necklace with a short, studded chunky chain and a zodiac charm bracelet from Kenneth Lane. I love how the Papillon LV bag introduced a mixed print element to the look. Wood platform sandals echo the blonde wood of the necklace.
What’s your go-to summer uniform?

MAY STYLE RECAP { SF FASHION }

Sasha Maks Vintage May Style Recap with Wear Mahsa.

The Cool Cardigan

May’s ootds where all about SF fashion! Through Cake Carlos the designer behind Kajan Cake, a resident designer at the Fashion Incubator (FiSF), I met another  local talent, Mahsa Gharehgozloo, of Wear Mahsa,. In May, her pieces where featured in three posts. I’m still swooning over the longline  cardi with an abstract print on the back, the chic LBD that can be worn three different ways, and the drop-dead pencil skirt with a woven leather front panel.

The last look in May, sourced from Closet 1951, was built around an of-the-moment velvet maxi by DVF. If you haven’t checked out this little gem in Cow Hollow filled with designer consignment treasures make sure to swing by my trunk show Wednesday, June 15th, 5pm-9pm to shop the jewelry featured in these posts and their collection of luxury designer fashion, RSVP here.

VELVET TO THE MAX

Velvet maxi skirt and Sasha Maks Vintage boho necklace.
On my recent visit to Closet 1951, a designer consignment boutique in Cow Hollow, (for a meeting to plan my summer trunk show coming June 15th, save the date to shop my latest vintage eye-candy !) whose pieces I have featured on the blog before, I spotted a drop-dead velvet maxi in richly colored Art Deco style floral motif.
Velvet was a big trend on the Spring 2016 runways and this DVF skirt struck me as a versatile piece that will easily transition from day to night, and will be ideal for the cooler temps in the fall. To balance skirt’s length, I went with a neutral spaghetti strap top. A brass gypsy-chic cabochon set necklace perfectly picks up the colors of the skirt. A python clutch and sky high wedges stand up the the statement maxi.

TEXTURE NOIR {THE ALL-BLACK ENSEMBLE}

Mahsa leather skirt and Sasha Maks Vintage earrings.
If you need a sartorial palette cleanser, go for an all-black look. While the all noir look is classic and sleek you don’t want to be accused of looking (yawn) uninspired. To keep things interesting play with texture and vary the fabric of each piece. The pencil skirt is from local designer Wear Mahsa, who I featured in two previous posts, here and here. The herringbone design on the front made my heart skip a beat in its elegant execution! I chose a knit sweater jacket with studs to contrast and compliment the intricate pattern of the skirt.
Kitten heel calf booties in a faux ostrich leather add yet another dimension to the black ensemble. To play up the drama, I added rhinestone and black glass cameo drop earrings and an intricate and delicate beaded Victorian necklace. A simple shoulder bag completes the look effortlessly.
