FRIDAY FAVORITES: PAGEBOY STAFF PICKS October 4, 2013

 

WHAT WE LOVE RIGHT NOW

 

It's October! We can't think of a better time to switch things up- be it a new hair style, a new flavor of a favorite treat, or a new palette for clothes & makeup!  A change of season is the perfect excuse to step outside of your box. Here's what the Pageboy staff is obsessing over this week:

A gorgeous assortment of 20 brand-new shades.

New makeup is my favorite pick me up & Urban Decay is my absolute go-to brand. I'm obsessed with their foundation, eyeshadow & eyeliner. I can't even remember how I lived without the NAKED palette! Their latest eyeshadow palette, VICE 2, is packed with high- impact colors in fall ready shades, as well as on-trend metallics.

Milkmaid braids are an elegant look, perfect for any occasion.

Milkmaid braids are an elegant look, perfect for any occasion.

 

Braids are really having a fashion moment & my favorite variation is the milkmaid braid. I love the ease & simplicity of this style, which is almost endlessly customizable. Divide your hair into two pigtails & braid (try a fishtail braid for an edgier look), criss cross the two braids across the top of your head & secure with bobby pins. Viola! You have a stunning style equally suited to formal looks, snuggly sweaters, or cozy flannels. Not the DIY type? Come by the salon & I'd be happy to whip up a milkmaid braid just for you... only $20 for a limited time!

Mmmmmm... tastes like Fall!

Mmmmmm... tastes like Fall!

 

 

Pumpkin beer, pumpkin spice latte, pumpkin pie... everyone goes pumpkin-crazy in the Fall. For my money, though, you can't beat Yoforia's Pumpkin Spice Yogurt. This low-calorie treat is the perfect mid-afternoon snack or late-night dessert! Add a few chocolate chips & you have an even more decadent indulgence.

There is just nothing better than Braves baseball!

Being a Georgia girl, I'm obviously a serious Braves fan. I love going to games all season long, but October = playoffs & isn't that the whole point? I'll be rockin' my Gattis jersey and cheering my boys on all the way to the World Series... who knows, I might even do my own Braves-inspired manicure! #ThisIsWhyWeChop

Bright booties are comfy & stylish.

I'm not the sort of girl to sacrifice comfort for style, so I'm always looking for shoes that are the best of both worlds. These booties from DV by Dolce Vita are the perfect solution! I love pops of neon, & the subdued chartreuse color will go with any fall look. Plus, they'll be just as cute worn with jeans or skirts. Even better, I scored them at T.J. Maxx, so they didn't break the bank!

A girl can never have too much animal print!

I love a good leopard print anything. Dresses, blouses, skirts, jeans, shoes, handbags, wallets- you name it (but not all at the same time of course!) Michael Kors' fall offerings are not only right on trend, but totally splurge-worthy. I'm starting my Christmas list now!

This accessory makes creating the perfect bun a snap! 

This accessory makes creating the perfect bun a snap! 

 

 

A great bun is one of the fastest & easiest ways to have perfectly polished hair. If you're like me & have really fine hair, creating a full-looking bun is next to impossible without a little help! This mesh donut makes executing a beautiful bun totally hassle-free. Just pick one in the color closest to your own locks & roll your way to a picture-perfect bun every time!

Victoria van Violence's modern take on the classic pin up girl.

Victoria van Violence's modern take on the classic pin up girl.

 

 

I'm obsessed with the iconic looks of pin-up girls. From the killer hair & make-up to the amazing clothes, I always find inspiration in their beauty. So it's no surprise that I'm drawn to women that embrace those classic images & put their own twist on it, like Victoria van Violence. Throw your hair into Victory Rolls, draw on your best cat-eye liner, add a swipe of red lipstick & you can channel your own inner pin up girl, too!

 

As always, we'd love to hear what your favorites are! Tweet us @pageboyathens or let us know on Facebook! And since the Georgia/Tennesse game is in Knoxville, we're open this Saturday for all your weekend hair needs!
