Nudie Photos (See Jane in the Buff)

First, get your mind out of the gutter! Second, wipe the sweat off your brow--you won't be flagged at work for looking at this post. Today's blog is dedicated to all that is flesh-toned-tastic. Nudes and peaches and tans, oh my!

Me on an average work day. Hair up, slightly disheveled. Solemn expression. Minimal makeup. (Sometimes not even the best concealers can cover up those dark circles.) Alberta Firretti conveyed a minimalist look at her recent show in Milan (Fall 2010 Collection). My translation: keep your face as naked-looking as possible this spring/summer. Beige shadows, a light hand with the eyeliner (keep it in the brown family), and mascara for the eyes, then a light pink blush for the cheeks and a subtle gloss for the lips. It's not so much a trend as it is a rule of thumb for the season, really.

{Speaking of "trends," have you noticed yet that just about anything is in style these days? I can honestly say, if it works for you, do it. If you can rock drop-crotch harem pants, more power to you. In fact, I need to start keeping all my clothes instead of tossing them to the curb so quickly--most everything comes back around. Well, not everything; the terrible sweater coats I owned back in 2001 still haunt me from time to time. (Think Rampage, shag collars, Ms. J)}

CHANEL 2.55 Bag in Beige

J'adore. In this life of purses, the Chanel 2.55 in beige is my Holy Grail. I lust/yearn/pine after this gorgeous bag. Sure, I'd take black, but I've got plenty of that color; the beige is positively perfect and (somewhat) unique.
