Castello Di Amorosa, Calistoga
For those of you who keep up with La Créature Chic, I feel awful for not posting in weeks! Let's just say the past few weeks made for a tone of posts to come. I recently took a break from my summer job as secretary at the small family owned exterior design company and headed up for the wine country to visit my mother's neck of the woods (she doesn't reside there, but the majority of her event planning/ catering gigs are at Quintessa vineyards, her employer.) It's always exciting to come back once in a while and see one of the places a lot of my childhood was spent coming with her to work and riding the company's bikes up and down the vineyards while watching her work the sometimes artistic, even glamourous (or so I thought as a child) job that has influenced me in my thinking process and overall view of a lot of things.

Summer Purchases: Christian Dior

By the way, how GORGEOUS are the colors in this ad? In love with the shoes and bags!
It's not often that I like to have variables of necessary accessories like a wallet or a bag, although I've always wanted to be the type of person to carry a different bag everyday. I find it really hard with my early morning schedule and work space to change bags daily since I always like to carefully and neatly store and clean bags and accessories before/after every time I use them.  Wardrobe O.C.D much? Yikes!

Update: Guess where I am?!

Private underground pathway at my secret location. Curiosity kills the cat, but I'm still alive so.....

Happy Monday!

   So for the past 2 weeks or so, I haven't posted anything and I felt a little guilty for it! Losing control of my own work gets me really anxious to get back and start fresh. I am going to try to start posting every other day to get back into the flow of things and then start the daily posts again.

As Haute Couture week kicked off yesterday and the streets of Paris are once again filled with amazingly dressed reporters and exclusive clients, I decided to give a brief recap of last season's shows. I included every thing from the the most historically well known couture houses to the up and coming (newly admitted!) couturiers.

5 Surprising Wearable Backstage Beauty Trends Women Fear, Not Anymore!

I decided to put the Graphic Liner trend to the test, perfect for the brave enough rock this look on a day out.
In this Picture: Denim Button Up, American Apparel. Linen Blazer,
Between several years of helping out backstage during runway shows, theatre productions, and concerts, I don't know which category has had the majority of models and performers fulminate about how they wish they could wear the makeup they wear on stage out on a daily basis without getting "the look." I decided to talk everyday women as I get them ready to see which backstage trends they fear most.
