Oscars 2012 Best Dressed: Milla Jovovich

Did you all tune into the Academy Awards last night?

There were soooo many stunning dresses that were on the Red Carpet! White and sequins details were the top choices for the celebs this year, and they all wore it wonderfully. But, if we had to choose a best dressed, it would have to be the always beautiful Milla Jovovich! She wore a white, one shoulder Elie Saab Couture gown (Fall 2009 Collection) that made her sparkle from head to toe! And not just the dress, but her hair and makeup were pulled together so effortlessly with bold red lips as the focus and a messy but sexy side bun, classic!

Who do you think was best dressed?

Celebrity Stylelust: Taylor Swift


Since we haven't done a Celebrity Stylelust in a while... we thought we would do one on the lovely and talented Taylor Swift! We saw what she wore to the Grammy's just recently, and our jaws dropped! Gorgeous! with a big capital 'G'! We here at August Wrinkle love Taylor's style and how she transforms from that girl next door, to musical diva! We created a styleboard using Polyvore (yes, we are currently obsessed with Polyvore) to show our love for Taylor =) We also posted some other styleboards of Taylor that we found were inspiring!

Have a looksy!

Beauty Picks of the Month: February 2012

It is the beginning of February, so it’s time for another Beauty Picks of the Month post! We all need our beauty fix!
Makeup brands have been launching their Spring 2012 Collections, and since Spring is my favorite season for seeking out new beauty finds, I was really excited! Color, color, and more color! I also had to throw in the new Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette =)
I wasn’t going to list ALL the Spring launches, so I chose my top picks that I thought were worth sharing =D MAC has an array of different Spring collections which will be available at different times in February, and the only one I really took an interest in was the MAC Cook collection. Not so sure if I’ll be buying any of these, so I didn’t list it, but it’s worth checking out.
Here goes!
Have a fabulous February!
I was actually really looking forward to what Essie was going to come up with for their Spring collection, but I was just really disappointed.. the colors just didn't WOW me.. But then... I saw the Butter London collection and was like.. 'Hallelujah!' I tend to like more creamy, matte nail colors so Im really loving 'Bossy Boots', 'Slapper' and 'Trout Pout' the most out of this collection.

Ive never owned a single Bobbi Brown product, EVER, throughout my entire makeup career! Pretty sad huh?! lol I hear so many mixed reviews on their products that Im always sitting on the fence when it comes to really purchasing.. but, I thought their new collection of Lip Colors and Shimmer Bricks will be worth a try. Those bright lipsticks are really tempting me =P

Of course I couldn't exclude Chanel from this list! Glossimers are my all time favorite lipgloss so I had to put their Spring collection on here. They will probably put a hole in my pocket, but the glossimers are just one of those products that make a girl feel special =D

Ok, the infamous Naked 2 palette! Dun Dun Dun... Didn't get the first one since they are ALWAYS soldout wherever I go.. so I thought I would work my way backwards and get the Naked 2 palette FIRST! They priced it $2.00 higher than the first Naked palette, don't know what the deal is with that.. I guess because its so popular, but if your getting 12 amazing eyeshadows... its still only $4.17 per eyeshadow..

Im more of a tinted moisturizer kind of gal, and NARS has never seemed to fail me with any of their products so far. Ive been using the popular Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer, which works great, but I thought this product would add a little more luminosity to my complexion for the Spring and Summer months. Don't know how much coverage this product has, but I guess I will just have to wait and see! Available February 1st at Nordstrom, but Ill probably wait to buy it on their website available February 15th.

What are your February Beauty Picks? Have you tried any of these products yet, or plan too? I would love to know!

New Arrivals: Early Bloomers (Limited)

Hey Everyone!!

We just posted some of our early Spring dresses and tops today!!

We call these our 'Early Bloomers' since, well.. its still considered Winter, but some of the early blooming Spring flowers are starting to show. These ephemeral flowers have short life spans and only bloom once a year during late winter to kick off the Spring season, and then they dont bloom again until the next year. This is why these set of dresses and tops are called the 'Early Bloomers' because we only have a very limited quantity of each, and we will not be restocking them in the future if they sell out.

Hope you like!! Here are a few of the Early Bloomers now available in our shop!
