Then, we have the Mizhattan review of the Alexander Wang sample sale. And now, I'm happy to announce that Stella McCartney will be hosting a sample sale next week. I received an invite to the Stella McCartney Friends & Family VIP sale and wanted to share the info. But before I get into...

Violet Blonde is soft and cushy-powdery, as is the current fashion, but it's loudly so, in keeping with Tom Ford's aesthetic.1 I preferred it applied lightly; your mileage, of course, may vary. The opening is a heady mix of citrus, sweet fruit, violet leaf and violet (violet fans take note:...
