Choupette’s Diary: Five Things

CA

It’s no surprise that people come to me for advice on all things fashion and beauty – why wouldn’t they? As a social guru, I will be sharing my weekly five every Friday to keep humans in the know. Without further adieu, here is the first series:

(un) Blogger Maja Wyh introduced me to clothing label DRYKORN developed “for beautiful people” (yes, that’s their actual slogan). I don’t know if it’s that the clothing is perfectly modeled on Myh’s envious bod or that I’m overly eager for fall but either way, consider their online store bookmarked.

Gift Guide: Fab Finds Under $50

Laura Mercier Kohl Eye Pencil Set ($32, $75 value) – In a world where eyeliner pencils are generally harder formulas, I’m grateful for Laura Mercier’s Kohl Eye Pencils, which glide on smoothly and have a much softer formula then other brands on the market. It”s easy to apply on the inside lining of the eyelid & the base of the lashes for a stand alone look, or it can be smudged and worked onto the eyelid for a smokey effect. This set comes in 5 Shades include Stormy Grey, Black Violet, Brown Copper, Black Gold and Black Navy.

Incase Capsule headphones ($49.95) – These are a great set of portable headphones for any commuters or travelers on your list. Both stylish and practical, they come with three different eartip sizes that are interchangeable for your most optimal comfort and fit. The audio cable features an integrated mic and remote to control audio playback and works with for sound and calls with Apple products (iPhone, iPod, iPad and MacBook).

Everlane The Solid Tote ($35) – I love this website. Everlane offers really great basics that can be worn on repeat without them getting tired. It’s an ease tote that fits comfortably over the shoulder, for carrying anything from groceries to your laptop. 

PC Celebrates Target + Neiman Marcus Holiday 24 Collection #Holiday24

There’s no doubt about it, last night Target blew it out of the water at the launch party for the Target + Neiman Marcus collaboration. I was so excited to be invited to this event, all I’ve ever wanted was to be able to shop Neiman Marcus at Target prices.

The collaboration which features over 50 gifts from 24 of the most coveted American designers (we’re talking Prabal Gurung, Marchesa, Oscar de la Renta, Marc Jacobs, Rag & Bone, DVF, Proenza Schouler, Jason Wu, Rodarte, Tory Burch…) priced between $7.99 – $499.99, with most items under $60.

The event was to die for! Two floors of designer goods, interactive floor models (on girl was biking in place, while another was knitting the most giant fabric I’ve ever seen in the window), and most of the designers we’re in the house, walking the floor — I nearly passed out — too many of my heroes in one space. The champagne was flowing and the guests we’re taking advantage of the sneak peek to shop the collection before it’s December 1st launch date!

Karlie Kloss, was the face of the #Holiday24 campaign and the first person I saw at the event (looking ever as stunning in a black dress with star sparkles). I wasn’t about to miss the opportunity to ask her who she was wearing and her must-have beauty product for the season. The answer, “I’m wearing
