Maria Dueñas Jacobs is the accessories editor at Glamour Magazine. She was featured on Into the Gloss this week and I was immediately drawn to her natural look and easy beauty routine. A quick google took me to her wedding which was featured on Martha Stewart’s website. So, duh, I had to share.

Yesterday was one of those days where I felt like piling on all the jewelry I own. My beloved engagement ring is at the fabulous Lauray’s in Hot Springs, AR having it’s matching band created (an omg I’m getting married moment). Of course I had to pick up a bauble to replace it for the time being and decided to play with all the gold pieces I have been neglecting in favor of the simplicity of my diamond.
I also opted to pile my hair up. The big bun that I love is simple to do (instructions here) but the topknot is almost too easy. And I’m obsessed with these pants. I have them in yellow, white, khaki and brown; they are best when paired with a blousy top. They make your legs look ridiculously long because they’re so wide-leg and cover your shoes.
I came across the art of Viv Strauss via A lovely being and immediately fell in love. I like everything about her work from the price to the color to the characters and I thought you would too. Check out her shop here.
Beyoncé covers W this month. While I don’t always love what she wears. I almost always love what she does. She has the ability to influence pop culture in a way that very few people/women do. Down at the bottom, she shared the seven looks that shaped her career.
I love the 1940s glamour of this editorial. I’m a big fan of Alexander Skarsgård and an even bigger fan of Lara Stone. It’s almost hard to see Frida when she’s in the same frame.
Spellbound – Photographer Peter Lindbergh and fashion editor Grace Coddington for Vogue US’ July issue. “Featuring a love triangle with Lara Stone, Frida Gustavsson and actor Alexander Skarsgård–leading lady Lara plays femme fatale to Skarsgård’s quiet, cosmopolitan reserve. While Frida Gustavsson uses her girlish charm as the other woman. Grace Coddington’s glamorous picks from labels such as Marc Jacobs, Balenciaga and Miu Miu conjure dangerous characters in a world of 1940s film noir elegance.” via TFS
I love it when editorials tell a fun story with the setting as well as the fashion. This one looks like a couple played dress-up all weekend and took pictures in and around their home. Sounds like a fun weekend to me!
I’m also loving the model’s name: Millicent.
