How I Style 3 Fall Fashion Essentials

Fall fashion is by far my favorite season for styling. Sadly being a Southern California student, we don't get to experience leaves changing, or even that brisk evening air until nearly November...(tear) But that doesn't mean I can't blast the air conditioning, dress up in boots and pretend....right?

In this video 4 other beauty youtubers and I styled 3 essential items, liquid leggings, denim shirt, and a little black dress! What's so fun about this video is that we all have SUCH different styles, so no matter what your taste in fashion is, you're bound to find each one styling variation that suits you! 

Check out the video linked below! & Tell me what your fall fashion must have is!

Taylor Swift Tutorial: We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together

It's no secret that the world is utterly entranced by this 22 year old country cross over star. She's adorably bubbly and still totally humble despite her immense success in the last few years (hello....she was #11 on the Forbs 100 list!) What snagged the media's attention about Taylor was her brutal honesty (and yes. I said brutal) This seemingly innocent blonde bats her lashes and smiles as she oh so lyrically openly disses her ex boyfriends. While most of us bitter single girls just complain with our girlfriends over pints of Ben & Jerry's, Taylor takes that to a whole new level, outright naming the boys who've wronged her in her hit songs. Now THAT'S the kinda girl I wanna be friends with.

On August 13 2012, Taylor released her first single off the new album "Red," in a google live chat, titled 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.' In this catchy tune Taylor stresses to a persistant ex, that in fact, they will "never EVER" get back together. Let's be honest, we all have those ex's who keep trying to push their ways back into our patched up hearts. And it's about time we all start taking a leaf from Taylor Swift's book, flipping our blonde pony tails, pouting our red lips, and slamming doors in those jackasses faces. Am I right? 

The much anticipated music video for 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,' Taylor challenged fans to catch on to the quirky sense of mocking in the video. Clad in oversized fleece pajamas, the 'iconic' indie glasses, she dances around in a cable knit room with her people fully dressed in animal costumes...and yes I mean furries. If Taylor's stroke of sheer genius went over your head, study up on some indie music videos, they'll suddenly look strikingly similar. Furthering her major clue to viewers about who the muse of this song is, "some indie record that is much cooler than mine," my guess? Despite the actor in the video's physical similarity to her ex Jake Gyllenhaal, I'm totally thinking this tune screams John Mayer. Uh hello...indie record....desperate man? Seems pretty obvious to me.

In the music video Taylor dawned her now signature look of thick winged liner and a full red lip, easily recreated by meare crazed fans like me! If you want to see how I achieved this look, pajamas and all, check out the tutorial!

Victoria's Secret Hair Tutorial

Let's be real here, what girl looks at a Victoria Secret model and goes, "Blah. That's some mediocre hair" I'm a huge fan of curls, tight little ringlets. loose waves, but especially as of late, these big soft curls! These rollers are amazing for achieving this look!
