Kicking it at Kick Pleat

Bonjour, mes amies! Kay B here with another article for you all. I hope you all are feeling more rested than I am at the start of the new week- I feel like I have been on the run every day since last week, and this weekend was no different.

On the bright side, I was kept busy with lots of fun and exciting activities- one of them being going to Kick Pleat in Austin to interview designer Miranda Bennett!

We had a great chat together, and you can read all about that interview here.

For those of you who are don’t know, Kick Pleat is a women’s clothing, shoes and accessories store with an airy aesthetic and clean design that will transport you to the finest of high-fashion dreams.

The exterior and interior design of the store speak to the vibe of the clothes and accessories that grace the racks and shelves of Kick Pleat. A woman will walk in through their doors and immediately feel empowered to breathe life into her unique persona through the many ensembles and pieces that Kick Pleat has to offer. I had so much fun looking around and venturing through the shop.

Each section of the store has its own voice and speaks to each customer uniquely and individually. Just as every woman has her individuality, you won’t find anything like what you will discover within the white mod walls of Kick Pleat.

My favorite parts of the store were the dressing room and the shoe stadium, by far. Can we just talk about this stadium for a minute? Goals, without a doubt.

Of course, I want to share my outfit with you all from my Kick Pleat visit. It was a daytime event, so I decided not to dress up too much while keeping it light and classy on sweltering spring day. (Seriously, “spring” in Texas is in the upper 80’s…)

Top: Candie’s | Shorts: H&M | Booties: | Coach | Sunglasses: Aldo | Purse: Mix No. 6

It was such a beautiful day outside, though I’m almost certain that Texas skipped the spring season and went straight for summer. So I wanted to wear light and loose garments while still looking put together. I chose for my makeup look of the day to be a light one as well, in regards to color tones as well as application. The Mac Pro Longwear foundation is my holy grail on beating hot days such as Friday. Let me know if you want to hear more about my makeup and skincare routine!

Can you tell that I was (and still am) obsessed with this shoe stadium? I can’t get over it- and don’t believe I ever will…

My outfit for this  day was pretty neutral in my blouse and booties, so I brought a pop of color to my ensemble with my cinch waist shorts from H&M. I love these because while they are a longer pair of shorts, they’re loose and airy enough to wear on the hottest of day. Not to mention, the cinched waist is not only a beautiful addition of detail, but is also very flattering. When worn with a loose shirt tucked in or even a fitted blouse, it draws attention to your waistline and makes it look smaller in your mid-section

If that doesn’t win you over, then you should know that these shorts have pockets. AND a drawstring bow. You’re welcome.

I had so much fun visiting Kick Pleat, interviewing Miranda Bennett, and shooting for this article. I’m so happy to be back on the blog and can’t wait to share even more with you guys. Look out for some exciting new additions and changes around here soon… I think you guys will like what I have in store for you all. (: Don’t forget to keep up with me on all my socials (Instagram, Twitter, Facebook) and very soon we’ll be adding YouTube to the mix! Also, big thanks to Angie for the photography- go ahead and check out all of her photography here.

Sending lots of love to you all, and wishing you a wonderful rest of your day or night! Until next time, lovies…

Stay Fab,

Kay B xx

Spring Break: Day Makeup Look

Hi hi, loves, and happy Friday!

I am super excited about this article because it’s the first time I’ve ever done anything like this. With Spring Break just around the corner, I thought I would come to you with a few fun articles just in time for every student’s week in the Spring.

Today, I’m coming to you guys with a Day to Night Makeup tutorial. It’s fairly easy, and it’s pretty versatile because you can have a nice day look that can easily be turned into a darker, more defined evening look without removing any of your makeup. You could also do each one individually and rock it however you like! Anyway, let’s get started with the day look. (:

1. First, we’re going to start with a fresh face. Make sure to wash your face so that your makeup goes on smoothly.

2. Next, I’m using my foundation to even out my skin. I mix these two foundations to match my skintone- I’m combining Covergirl TruBlend in the shade d6 and Covergirl Outlast 2 in 1 in the shade Honey Almond. You can use your fingers, a sponge, or a brush to blend in your foundation, depending on your preference.

DSC_0037step1.1 step 2.2

3. Now, I’m using my Elf HD Lifting Concealer on my eyes to even out the color as well as prime my eyelids.

DSC_0075DSC_0077

4. Now, I’m going to use my Kabuki brush to set my concealer and foundation with my matte powder by Covergirl in Honey Almond.DSC_0061foundation done2

5. Now let’s work on the eyes. I’m going to use this Rose Blush pink shadow all over my eyelid. It’ll brighten my eyes and, since it’s so bright, it will illuminate the other colors I use and make them appear more pigmented.DSC_0088 DSC_0100

6. Now, on the outer corners of the lid and the outer half of my under eyes, I’m going in with this warm Cocoa Brown shadowDSC_0113DSC_0122 DSC_0117

7. Now it’s time to put this lighter brown shade in the crease to define our eye shape.DSC_0127DSC_0119

8. Next, we’ll use a black pencil liner on the upper eyelid for definition. I’m using the shade Black Out by Ulta. After applying it to my top lid, I will smudge it a bit with a smudge brush to make the appearance thicker and smokier.DSC_0141 DSC_0152

9. This is one of my favorite parts of my makeup routine- filling in my eyebrows. Looking at the difference just makes me feel accomplished because a good eyebrow job equals a good day. (: This is the difference between my eyebrows when done and undone.DSC_0187

10. Now, it’s time to frame our eyes by applying mascara to our lashes. I’m using Colossal Volume by Maybelline for a separated, fanned out look.DSC_0202DSC_0203

11. After this, it’s time to put our highlight and bronzer on our cheekbones. I’m using Warm Bronzer by Elf, and I’m using the lighter shade on the left to highlight my cheekbones.DSC_0227

12. Now it’s time to add some color to our cheeks with a rosy blush. This is Dust Rose from Sephora.DSC_0324

13. Finally, we shall apply a tinted balm for a pop of color on the lips. I chose Maybelline’s Baby Lips in Pink Punch. I chose a tinted balm as opposed to a lip stick or lip gloss because it keeps your lips hydrated throughout the day, and the color lasts really well for several hours while on the go without looking to harsh. Perfect for a casual day look.

Here you have it- the final look! I love this makeup look because it perfectly defines all your features without going to overboard for a casual day. It’s pretty versatile, and the eye makeup looks good with any eye color because the colors used are pretty neutral.

DSC_0255 DSC_0250
If you wanted to define any parts of your makeup look more or less, then you’re able to do so and still look well put together. In fact, this makeup look can easily be transformed into an evening look without removing one swipe of makeup. You can even do the night makeup look on its own for an evening out! If you want to see the continuation of this evening makeup look, stay tuned on the blog for part two. (:

Thank you guys so much for checking out this tutorial. It’s my first one and there will plenty more to come! I hope you enjoyed it and, most of all, just have fun! Until next time…DSC_0269

Land of the Free

Happy Friday Eve (aka Thursday), darlings! I hope July is off to a great start for you all.

This weekend, July kicks off with fun and celebration with friends and family. Whether you’re heading out to the lake, going to a backyard barbecue, or just hanging around town with friends, 4th of July weekend is a fun time with loved ones and a great excuse to throw some patriotic spirit and festivity into your outfit!

IMG_2929

Top: Forever 21 | Shorts: Dailylook | Shoes: Converse | Belt: Cotton On | Bracelet: Anthropologie | Sunnies: Forever 21

 

What I’ve found to be a common occurrence in the past is that of some people wearing extreme outfits in which it could be assumed that they bought a flag and made a dress of it, or wearing red, white, and blue in overwhelming ways. That got me to thinking, and I realized that there are more flattering ways to wear the patriotic colors without looking like Betsy Ross passionately put your outfit together and still maintaining the fun vibes. I thought it would be fun to share a casual and cute outfit idea for the 4th of July that incorporates the red, white, and blue while looking cool and ever so American. (:

IMG_2940IMG_2917 IMG_2924IMG_2926

Just admiring some imaginary fireworks then laughing as I remember it’s daytime and it’s not the 4th of July just yet… (:
IMG_3000IMG_3020
This outfit is perfect for celebrating the 4th and hanging out with friends and family. The boxy, blue and white, striped crop is a great compliment to the white, distressed, high-waisted shorts and balances out the color. Not only do the colors look great, but the wide and boxy top and cinched waist of the shorts will make your waist look a lot smaller! The horizontal stripes are also very flattering.

By the way, can we take notice of the fact that white converse already have all the U.S. colors? Simple and cute… I like it!

IMG_2965

Now, let’s talk makeup!

IMG_2982

Because my top is already so dark and I decided to sport a bold red lip, I opted for an overall softer eye and naturally blushed cheeks. I used a medium gold shadow on my lid, a rosy red on the outer half of my lid, and then a medium brown in my crease for definition. I lined my eyelids with the black liquid liner “Stiletto” by Maybelline and defined my lashes by using Maybelline’s Falsies Colossal Cat Eyes mascara. To add a light color to my cheeks, I lightly dusted a warm, rosy blush with tan undertones onto the apples of my cheeks.

IMG_2986

Wearing red lipstick is a great way to bolden your makeup look as well as tie your patriotic look together.

IMG_2985

“OMG I love America!!!”

Well, my loves, there you have it! I hope you all liked this outfit and that it gave you guys some ideas for your own ensemble on the 4th of July! I really love this look, and it’s so great for watching fireworks with friends, chilling out at the lake, or just having backyard fun with the family. If you guys want to share your 4th of July outfits with me, tweet me pictures because I’d love to see them! Just tag me (@StuddedCollar) in your pictures and I’ll retweet some of them. While you’re at it, check out my Instagram and my Facebook page! I’m always super active on Instagram and Twitter, so follow me to keep up with the adventures!

Also, a huge shoutout and an even bigger thank you to my friend, Rachel for taking these awesome photos. Check out her instagram here!

Remember to have fun, stay safe, and always, always, always…

Sweet Valentine: Daytime Look

Hello, hello, hello my darlings, and Happy New Year!! I apologize for being unable to ring in the new year with you all and for the low supply of new posts, but you know well enough that I am never far from you and return as quickly as possible. (: I hope that 2014 holds fond memories for you all and that new ventures, lessons and sweet times lie ahead in 2015.

Welcome to my first post of 2015! (cue the confetti) With the first major holiday of the year already a month behind us, we have Valentine’s Day to look forward to. Yes, even if you do not have a significant other you can still expect to have fun on V-Day! Whether you will be spending the day with your lovie or taking on the town with your best girl friends, you can still look killer while doing it.

IMG_4642[1]

Dress: H&M | Shoes: Steve Madden | Jewelry: Charming Charlie | Nail Polish: Maybelline ColorShow

Valentine’s Day dawns the most pink, red and white than any other day of the year, but you do not necessarily need to put together an outfit that makes you look like you covered yourself in glue and frolicked through Hallmark’s Valentine’s Day isle. I’ve put together a daytime look that is perfect to wear while with your girls or your boyf and it includes the festive colors in a more wearable fashion. (:

IMG_4648 IMG_4649

Note that my dress is not all red, white, or pink, but within the pattern, pink is the predominant color. I accented my look with neutral-toned, gemed jewelry to add a touch of formality. The look is sweet, feminine, and is perfect for a fun day with your special loves.

IMG_4654

Believe it or not, this is my first bubble skirt purchase (a bubble skirt is one that comes out at the dress’s waist line and has a rounded figure), and I really like it! I appreciate the placement of the waistline- dresses that have their wait’s seam at your natural waist are some of the most flattering as opposed to an empire wait that makes your torso, at times, appear smaller and your mid-section wider (depending on your body type).

IMG_4655 IMG_4656 IMG_4657 IMG_4658

When wearing a dress as busy as this, it’s best to choose a solid colored shoe. That’s not to say that the shoe itself can’t make it’s own statement. These suede, ankle-strap, open toed platforms from Steve Madden are simple in their neutral tone, but don’t fail to stand out with its thick straps and heel.

IMG_4660 IMG_4659 IMG_4668 IMG_4669IMG_4653

I opted for a soft, romantic look since this is a daytime outfit. I love how the muted fuchsia lip pops but doesn’t appear harsh with the other softened makeup features. A light rosy blush and a soft smoky eye married beautifully with this ensemble. Like this post and comment below if you want to see this make-up tutorial!

IMG_4664 IMG_4662 IMG_4661

Just some candids of me being… well, me. (:

Well, my darlings, that’s all I have for you today! I hope this inspired you somehow and that you enjoyed reading this as much as I enjoyed putting this together for you. Remember that regardless of whether or not you have a Valentine, you should show some extra love to others- it’s what keeps our world moving after all!

Christmas Gift Guide for Her + Holiday Giveaway!

 

Happy Holidays, my loves! We have T-minus 6 days until Christmas and I am more than excited! Spending time with family and friends, seeing all the Christmas lights and movies, everything is just so magical at Christmas time. Something that goes into making the season really fun is buying gifts for your family and friends!

Gift Guide- Cover

It can be tough to decide what to get for those close to you, especially the ladies in our lives. So, here is a little gift guide to make the gift shopping process a little easier for you all during this exciting, magical season.

1. Kate Spade Goodies

Gift Guide- Kate Spade

If you know a lady who loves to write, journal, is hyper-organized, or just loves Kate Spade, then this is the gift for her. I love the polka dot and sparkle designs from Kate Spade for their office collections, especially this Agenda and Pen. Their mugs and phone cases are so cute as well. I don’t know about you, but if someone got me a gift that made my everyday tasks a bit cuter and more fun, I would be quite appreciative. Besides, who says you can’t be chic while jotting down notes, whipping out your phone, or making yourself a nice cup of tea?

2. The Best Albums to Close Out 2014

Gift Guide- Music

Music is a huge part of my life, so I am a bit biased when I include this gift idea in here along with the specific artists like Taylor Swift and Charli XCX. BUT if you’ve got a friend who is always humming a tune or gets lost in the music, get her a few CD’s that speak to her taste! Whether she’s a fanatic for boybands like One Direction or goes crazy for alternative rock groups like Walk the Moon, getting a music CD from her favorite musician(s) is a thoughtful gift. Plus, it means more to get CD’s from groups you know she loves than getting the generic, basic… dare I say it… iTunes gift card. *shudders* (But we all love iTunes, so no one can complain about that gift either (: )

3. Bath and Body Sets

Gift Guide- Bath and Body

Another lovely gift idea for your girlfriends and lady-loved ones (I tried… you know what I mean) is a bath and body set! If she likes mysterious yet floral scents, then the BCBGMaxazria Bon Genre 4-Piece Fragrance Gift Set is the perfect gift set. For a cool, wintery scent that is a breeze of crisp air upon opening the package (my inner poet has been unleashed and she can’t be tamed) then the Philosophy Snow Angel Super set is the winning ticket! Finally, Julep has some awesome hand and body lotions, and for a sweet, warm scent that is great to use all year round, purchase the Hands in the Air hand lotion gift set. Honestly, with any of these three, you can’t go wrong!

4. Too Faced Makeup+Brushes

Gift Guide- Makeup

Not only are makeup sets great Christmas gifts, but they are also awesome stocking stuffers! A brand that I have really started loving recently is Too Faced, and their palettes are just darling! Their new Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar Palette and Beauty Wishes Sweet Kisses Palette are great gifts because 1) the quality of the shadows, bronzers and blushes are amazing, and the colors are dimensional as well as neutral enough to compliment any skin tone! The browns, burgundies, pinks, and shimmers are beautiful for the Christmas season and beyond and are sure to make this lucky gal quite holly and jolly.

5. Sunglasses

Gift Guide- Sunglasses

You guys know by now that I absolutely love sunglasses and I find them to be such a cute accessory. Sunglasses would be such a cute Christmas gift, especially as a stocking stuffer. The gorgeous sunnies you see above are from an awesome company called Raen Optics. They have some amazing quality glasses that take sun ray protection to entirely new- and fashion forward- level.

IMG_2947[1]IMG_2948[1]IMG_2953[1]IMG_2955[1] IMG_2956[1]IMG_2960[1]

One of my favorite lenses from Raen is their Remmy Lens. This is Remmy in Crystal and I absolutely love it! It’s nothing like any of the other sunglasses I own and I’m so in love with it. I ordered these from DITTO using their awesome try-on-at-home technology and I was nothing short of impressed. Check out my article about DITTO and their virtual try-on-at-home feature- you’ll be amazed by what you see. Thanks so much for the sunnies, DITTO!

Now, don’t go away just yet! I want to thank you guys so much for all your love and support- that is the greatest Christmas gift you guys could give me! To me, Christmas is more about giving than receiving, so because I love you guys so much, I have a Christmas gift for you- MY FIRST GIVEAWAY!!

Homecoming Trends 2014 ft. Tootsies

Hello, darlings, Kay B here! I hope you’re all doing well today. (:

As you all may or may not know, I’ve collaborated with Tootsies for an exciting project and I’m so excited to release it to you all right now! I came up with four gorgeous looks showing off different styles using Tootsies’ latest merchandise for…. Homecoming!

For those who don’t know, Tootsies is a gorgeous, high-end, designer clothing store specializing in clothing, jewelry, shoes, and accessories. They have the hottest trends and the best in-store consultants to help make your shopping experience the absolute best. I’m so excited to share these looks with you and I know you must be anxious to see them, so without further ado, let’s get started!

1. Classic

Classic_2 Classic_3 Classic_5
Classic_7IMG_0049 IMG_0052 IMG_0053 IMG_0055 Classic_6

Dress: Alice and Olivia | Shoes: LK Bennett | Necklace: Ziio | Earrings: Noir | Purse: Franchi

Black and white is a classic, timeless combination when it comes to anything, especially apparel. Instead of going for the “Classic Little Black Dress,” I chose the Little White Dress (with some black detailing). The silhouette of this dress is extremely flattering- the seam right under the bust along with black, lace, triangular cutouts on the side will make your waist appear smaller. I think one of my favorite parts is the high neckline; it allowed me to wear the gorgeous statement necklace by Ziio. Because the ensemble is black and white, I wanted to have some fun with the jewelry, so though this necklace has a tribal feel to it, it’s not too loud and the colors marry gorgeously. I love mixing styles to form a collective theme!

P.S- can we just take a moment to fawn over those shoes? There are no words besides fabulous and flawless to describe these beauties.

2. Glam

Glam 1Glam 3 Glam 4 Glam 5IMG_0093 IMG_0087 IMG_0083 IMG_0065 Glam 6

Dress: Parker | Shoes: Pelle Moda | Necklace: Lisa Freede | Earrings: Noir | Purse: Franchi

Now, this look is probably the most fun of the four! I honestly wouldn’t typically go for such a bold look, but once I put it together, I felt so fun and ready to dance the night away. This sequin covered dress really sets itself apart from all others with its symmetrical pattern, flattering cut, and the fact that it is NOT ITCHY. Sequin dresses are notorious for being itchy, but I felt so comfortable. I really like that the dress isn’t extremely short because the sequins and deep-v neckline are already speaking volumes. Remember that if you want a totally bedazzled dress- let it hit you right above your knee or 1.5 inches above- you want to look classy and glamorous!

3. Edgy

Edgy 1

Edgy 2 Edgy 3 Edgy 4IMG_0103 IMG_0102 IMG_0095 IMG_0115Edgy 5

Dress: Alexis | Shoes: Stuart Weitzman | Earrings: Robert Lee Morris | Cuff: Pilar Olavem | Purse: Franchi

When most people think of an “edgy” style, leather, gold studs, chains, and moto jackets come to mind. However, you can look edgy, classy and formal without all the biker gear! It’s all in the details, darling, because they add up. I went for an all black ensemble with a pop of red in this gorgeous Franchi clutch. I love the gold studs on the clasp that add just enough dimension without overwhelming the whole look. As much as I love this clutch, my favorite aspect of this outfit is the fringe on this flawless Alexis dress. It’s different, adds movement to the straight silhouette, and definitely adds edge without losing any femininity. You see? This outfit is actually pretty simple, but the black, fringe, and red clutch with gold detailing are all you need to rock your Homecoming.

4. Surprise…

Alright. I only intended to make 3 looks for you all, but that’s no fun, right? So I have a fourth “surprise” look to share with you guys….

A jumpsuit!

Surprise 1 Surprise 2 Surprise 3 Surprise 4 Surprise 6IMG_0104 IMG_0102 IMG_0115 IMG_0124 Surprise 5

Jumpsuit: Black Halo | Shoes: Stuart Weitzman | Earrings: Claudia Lobao | Cuff: Pilar Olavem | Purse: Whiting Davis

I know. Most- if not all- of you were expecting to see an out of this world dress, a skirt and top combo, or even a maxi dress. A pantsuit? What is this? Well, darlings, it’s fashion, the unexpected, it’s redefining and it’s style. You do not have to wear a dress to homecoming, and you can look just as beautiful, just as feminine, and just as flawless in a gorgeous, well tailored pantsuit like this one. Leave a comment down below and tell me what you think about wearing a pantsuit to Homecoming!

I can not stress how important it is to dress so that your beautiful body is done justice and is well flattered, and in this jumpsuit that was not an issue.  The seam below the chest is well placed and makes my waist narrower and the wide pant leg makes me appear taller and smaller up top. I love the small v cutout along the neckline adding a feminine touch as well as dimension. What I found really unique were the front pockets! Rather than being on the sides which would make my hips look bulky, they were placed at the front of the suit- very well thought out. I went for gold details to compliment this all black ensemble. It makes the outfit look warmer as opposed to silver which would give off a cold vibe.

Team 2 Team

I can’t sign off without giving the most massive thank you to my dear friend and talented photographer  for this shoot, Allie Burns. She did an absolutely amazing job with the shoot and delivered photos beyond my expectations. She’s incredibly talented, and if you are looking for a photographer in the Dallas area, contact her!

Allie Burns, photographer: allie.b123@att.net

A huge thank you to Tootsies as well! I felt like a princess and had an amazing time putting together Homecoming looks for you. I feel so blessed to have received the opportunity to partner with you and look forward to future projects!

As for you darlings, thank you for your immense support. You’ve finally seen the face behind The Studded Collar! Now you know that I am not a robot, but rather a teenage girl with a passion for fashion, writing, and Starbucks.  Now, I want to hear what you have to say about the looks I created! Tell me in the comments and mention which one is your favorite! Also, follow me on Twitter (@StuddedCollar), Instagram (@StuddedCollar) and like my Facebook page (The Studded Collar).

Flower Child

Good morning darlings, and Happy Tuesday!

IMG_9789

Top: Delia’s

Skirt: Forever 21

Belt: Cotton On

Sandals: Target

Bracelet: Nordstrom

Scrunchie: Forever 21

Yesterday I had a few errands to run and wanted a casual yet light and girly look. I opted for my new favorite floral skater skirt and a light scoop neck “Awkward” Tee. I tucked my top into my skirt and after looking in the mirror was happy with how it turned out.. but my outfit needed a kick.

IMG_9830

My skirt is a little high-waisted, and my waist is pretty small, so what better way to define and cinch in my waist than with an edgy belt? I love the gold studs on this belt. It adds some edge to an otherwise flirty-girly outfit (despite the immense amount of black.) The leather belt adds definition and a little something extra to the outfit.

IMG_9832 IMG_9831

Since I was on my feet quite a bit yesterday, I wanted to be comfortable so I wore my go-to black, strappy sandals. I have worn these so much this summer, I’m surprised I haven’t acquired a tan resembling the sandal straps yet!

IMG_9834

Because my outfit was predominantly black, I wanted to add some color without clashing with the flower colors. I chose this woven, blue, jeweled bracelet from Nordstrom. I really love the color of this bracelet and the simple gold, jeweled dome in the center. It’s simple and captivating.

IMG_9828 IMG_9827

If the floral skirt wasn’t enough, well say hello to my flower power scrunchie. Yes, scrunchies are back, and I wear them proudly. It was way too hot for me to wear my hear down (my hair is short, but it’s so dark and thick and it’s like wearing a woolly blanket on your head…) and I didn’t want to do anything elaborate to my hair, so I just braided my bangs straight back and held my ponytail with this scrunchie!IMG_9812

IMG_9866 IMG_9808

So you probably notice a lot of florals in my outfit, but you should know that floral prints are my favorite of all prints! They can translate into any season, and they can be styled in many different ways! Florals don’t always have to be girly, but you can definitely call me a somewhat girly Flower Child.

IMG_9810

Until next time, sunshines,

Stay Fab,
