Lust List | June 2014

Hi dolls! I apologize for being MIA. For the last couple weeks I’ve been completely enthralled with styling a commercial ad campaign. It was crazy, chaotic & anxiety-ridden but it was fabulous! I couldn’t be more proud of the results and I can’t wait to share those with you – sometime very soon!

In the meantime, it may be a little delayed but you know I couldn’t forget about my favorite monthly list of treasures! And let me tell you, styling a high-end commercial photo-shoot puts you in the midst of some fabulous pieces, I’ve been drooling for weeks!!

Tiffany Tank | Lust List June
1. M.A.C. Fluidline Eyeliner – The ultra-smooth, gel formula provides the precision of a liquid liner with a silkier, softer finish… yes!
2. Nixon ‘The 51-30 Chrono’ Watch – Blacked out & over-sized, the only way to go!
3. Dior Vernis Gel Shine and Long Wear Nail Lacquer “Métal Montaigne 803″
4. Valentino ‘Noir Rockstud’ T-Strap Pump – Black. Studded. Valentino. High-heel. Any questions?
5. DSQUARED2 Leather Pencil Dress – I’m clearly jonesing for Fall, as I couldn’t tell you what I’d do with a leather dress in July – in Arizona – but I need this in my life!
6. Eddie Borgo Silver-Plated Spike Earrings – These are fabulous + fierce!
7. Ray-Ban ‘Original Aviator’ 58mm Sunglasses – Solid Black. A chic classic!
8. Pave Crystal Snake Cuff Bracelet/Silvertone by: Adriana Orsini – Ssssensational!

PHXFW Faux-hawk

Faux-hawk | Tiffany TankEarrings:  Shop Jami | Dress: H&M – Similar | Bracelets: Aldo (stacked) these & these | Midi Rings: NastyGal | Clutch: Tasha x Nordstrom | Heels: Steve Madden | Nail Polish – Mani: Pure Ice “Siren” | Nail Polish – Pedi: Essie “Blanc” | Faux-hawk hold/volume: Sexy Hair

Problem: I’ve always wanted a faux-hawk done to my hair but my length has always been too long. Even whilst modeling (when you’re given ample opportunities to try out the coolest/craziest of styles) I was left disappointed: top knots, slick pony-tails & big curls galore but never anything “faux-hawk fun”… Zzzzz…

Solution: While getting ready the other night I decided, now is the time to attempt the coveted hairstyle while I’m enjoying the benefits of my “LOB” (long bob). So, I jumped on YouTube & found a number of DIY tutorials that followed/recreated (with the help of an army of bobby pins, baby elastics, Sexy Hair products + mirrors) & voilà! No, it isn’t perfect; I don’t even know if I did it correctly but ultimately I achieved the look that I wanted & for my first attempt, I’m damn proud of my faux-hawk!

The event that scored the debut of my first faux-hawk (lucky ducks) was Phoenix Fashion Week‘s “Emerging Designer Announcement”. 14 emerging designers (from all over the US) were selected by the PHXFW team to present their collections at Phoenix Fashion Week this fall & the announcement event provided the public/media an opportunity to meet the designers & get a “chic peek” at their designs.

The 14 lucky designers are…

Adóire by Saba: – “Artisanal Clothing for Modern Women.” – @AdoirebySaba
Àtiz Fashion House: “Eastern traditions. Western innovations. Global sophistication.” – @AtizFashion
Blackberry Maverick: “A Merging of Retro Socialite with an Edgy, Artistic Flare.” – @_bmav_
Charmosa Swimwear: “Unique, like you are.” – @CharmosaSwim
Hues of Ego: “To Each Her Own… Bring Your Alter Ego to Life with Hues of Ego. What is Your Hue?” – @HuesofEgo
Jacqueline Nicole: “Contemporary Clothing for the Modern Social Maven.” – @Jacq_Nicole_
Kismit: “The Catalyst to One’s Fashion Destiny. It is Fate, After All.” – @OfficialKismit
Lillienne Lang: “Luxury Attire for the Timeless, Imaginative and Unconventional.” – @LillienneLang
Misha Mendicino Designs: “Boho-Chic and Comfortably Sexy.” – @MishaMendicino
Point & Hue: “Urban Sophistication for the Contemporary Woman.” – @PointandHue
Rayan: “The Premier Brand of Formal Long Sleeve, Full-Length Silhouettes.” – @ShopRayan
Schuylark: “Style Without Compromise.” – @Schuylark
State Forty Eight: “Arizona Passion Meets Arizona Fashion.” – @StateFortyEight

Fashion, friends & faux-hawks… fun was certainly had by all! Especially, yours truly. :)

Style Collective

Tiffany Tank | Wardrobe StylistA compilation of my favorite outfit of the day “ootd” ensembles for the first half of 2014.

It’s funny to look back & see what sorts of pieces, trends, colors, patterns, etc. that I gravitate to. A captured collection of looks really provides genuine insight, not only into my own preferences (some of which I’m completely unaware of) but it also serves as a valuable tool to see my style grow/change/evolve. It really gives me a reference with which to redefine or polish my style going forward, especially when used for future wardrobe purchases & ensemble planning.

I highly recommend taking a look at your style collection regularly, whether yours is gathered via blog, instagram or your camera phone – wherever you capture/keep your photos, take a spin through them & observe your personal style evolution. Time will inevitably pass but if we don’t take a step back to see how far we’ve traveled or appreciate how we’ve grown/changed, we’ll never experience a different point of view.

Vegan Cuts – Beauty Box

Vegan Cuts – Beauty Box: “The easiest way to discover cruelty-free brands without committing to full-size products or prices. Each month you’ll receive a delivery of 4-7 new products to try, ranging from unique cosmetics to luxurious skincare.”

Vegan Cuts - Beauty Box | Tiffany Tank

I had the pleasure of meeting Jill Pyle, co-founder of Vegan Cuts while attending Luckyfabb last April. Jill is one of those unique/charming few that you instantly like, are immediately comfortable with & someone you remember, long after your initial introduction. Jill’s genuine excitement and enthusiasm for her company was contagious, so I jumped at the opportunity to experience Vegan Cuts & to share my experience with all of you!

Now, I’ve never subscribed to a monthly “box”, so I wasn’t sure what to expect but as soon as I opened my “6 x 6” beauty box & took a quick tour through the various products, I was genuinely excited – just like Jill!!

Vegan Cuts - Beauty Box | Tiffany Tank

1. SEVI – Blue Yarrow Sea Salt Hair Texture Spray – This amazing spray gives my naturally wavy/curly hair fantastic definition & without any crunchy stiffness.

2. HALONA Natural Eau de Parfum by Tallulah Jane – This fragrance is so clean & fresh (with notes of lime + ginger), it’s the perfect scent for summer!

3. Gourmet Body Treats “Raw Finishing Powder” – This oil-absorbing & line-minimizing finishing powder is so sheer you’d forget you have anything on, but it’s so fabulous, you couldn’t possibly forget!! Must-have!

4. Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques “Lash-Strengthening Mascara” – Those that know me, know that I’m hard to please when it comes to mascara. I’ve tried every new, improved & “revolutionary” mascara on the market, I’m often left disappointed and quickly return to my tried-and-true Maybelline “Great Lash” (classic pink+green tube) Blackest-Black Mascara – BUT I will say, this is the first mascara that I’ve tried and that I’m still using long after the initial test. My lashes are full, the color is rich & with multiple coats, zero clumps in sight!

5. Skinagain “Youth” – A great lightweight & age-defying moisturizer that helps reduce the appearance of fine lines, diminish dark spots, seal in moisture & improve your skins elasticity. It goes on smooth & kept my skin soft and moisturized hours later.

6. Goddess Garden Organics “Sunny Body” SPF 30 Natural Sunscreen – I never leave the house without suncreen (with or without makeup) & finding a great one that provides powerful protection without harmful chemicals is hard – this sheer mineral sunscreen is water-resistant, 100% biodegradable and contains nourishing aloe-vera! Ladies, the secret to youthful looking skin is protecting it – always, always, always wear sunscreen!!

I can’t thank Jill (or the fabulous team behind Vegan Cuts) enough for the opportunity to experience & share this extraordinary box with all of you!! I highly recommend the Beauty Box to anyone interested in experiencing the vegan, 100% natural & cruelty-free difference. Vegan Cuts really take their time to select the very best products!!

For those not as beauty-enthused, Vegan Cuts also offers a really yummy Snack Box as well as other vegan-approved products on their fabulous website.

*While I am not Vegan – I do appreciate + support everything that Vegan Cuts does and the businesses/products they support.*

 

Happy Monday, I hope it’s a great one!!
