Choke vibes

Chokers been on my mind since the 90s. At my 10th bday my neighbor bought me three bad ass chokers and I was in love w them. I haven’t seen chokers made like that since I was a kid. 

Being that chokers are wildly popular right now I thought why bother buying some when I can make some of my own creations inspired by the ones I had growing up. I’ve been wickedly creative lately, maybe due to the new moon and waxing moon that followed. . Creativity. New beginnings. New accomplishments. Etc. anywho ..

My first creation is inspired by my love for the crystal ball🔮. And if anyone knows me they know it’s my favorite emoji of all time. I tried to base this one off of my personality and/or interests. Witchy woman and all✨


Lace is huge right now w accessories so I tried to stay on the lace side but I am experimenting w other fabrics as well. 


The two above are just a preview of what I’ve been busy working away at. I have one I’m currently working on using tulle fabric and I’m so ecstatic about it and cannot wait to share. Once I am finished w my first batch I will set them up onto my etsy and post the link for those of you that are also goo goo gaga for 90s choker vibez. 
Hope you’re all heart eyes & more importantly hope your heart can breathe.

Vintage finds for sale;

As most of you know I’m a sucker for vintage finds and I go digging in my spare time. I came up on some rad finds and wanted to share them w you. 

Below are two dresses that I was absolutely obsessed w. The red one has that Marilyn Monroe feel to it – same shape and style. It was to die for- 50s heart eyes over here! It can definitely be paired w a leather jacket over the shoulders and if you want to keep it casual some white high top converse. You can also dress it up w a sexy heel. 

The second is a dress has a similar silhouette  but is a lot bigger than the red one. I believe the floral one is made for someone tall as the torso area is longer than the red one. This can be paired w a hat and a light sweater if you want to keep it casual – which I love to do! And it’s perfect for the current season.
Long story short I’m selling them both, girls! They’ve had a great run- they’ve seen a lot of things and umm they’re fabulous. Reach out for more photos & prices. I will send over photos of me in the dresses so you have a better idea of the fit. Email: Desiloumonique@gmail.com

ColourPop!

I know – I know it’s been almost a year since my last post and I was in desperate need of an update. I was busy balancing being a Mum and finding my inner peace✨ Anywho!

 

Can I just say – obsessed!?

I’m pretty sure you’ve heard of ColourPop by now, especially if you reside in LA. If not I can catch you up to speed.

 

ColourPOP is made here in LA and I swear by them! Anything made here I’m all for. But not only is that AMAZEballs – but one of their slogans is ‘fur baby friendly’ ! Ummmm HEART EYES. Not only are they animal friendly (no animal testing) but they are AFFORDABLE! Now that is a triple whammy and unheard of in these parts.

 

You can look glammed out at an affordable price. What’s not to love?! When you visit their Site & subscribe you get $5 off your first purchase!

 

They have some killer shades in their ‘lippie stix’ section that I adore! You can choose a subtle pout or get a little more daring as well. Their lippie stix are long lasting which I love and I have not had an issue w it drying my lips out like most lipsticks!

 

Don’t forget to check out their shadows+pigment section! Obsessed! I tend to do black eyeliner on the inside of my waterline and add their Super Shock Shadow in ‘To-A-T’ to the bottom of my eye and smoke it out. If I’m feeling frisky I’ll add a subtle pigment to the top of my eye & then just mascara. I like to keep it simple so I usually do not add too much color to the top of my lid or eyeliner. And of course a subtle lip color which they have plenty of! Currently using their ‘Ripa’ lip color that was inspired and made for Kelly Ripa. It’s a warm nude color and I usually live by any nude lip color since my eye makeup tends to be dark.

Go check them out and fill your carts up and tell me what you think! I’d love to hear from you.

PS. Don’t forget to subscribe w your email for $5 off your first order! Xx

Nasty Gals do it Better

So, if you’re a cool kid in the ‘know’..then you know that Nasty Gal opened on November 21 on Melrose. Although, I did not make my way over to the grand opening, as I was out of town, I made sure to make my way there a few days later when I returned to LA.

My sister was in town so her, Aluna and I stopped by and of course spent money worth spending.

I’m a bit late posting this, but wanted to make a point to address how amazingly hot their staff is and how incredibly down to earth they all were. Everyone employed there was so very pleasant and a total BABE! Great job w the hiring.

OH! And the fitting roomsssssss. You can see out, but not in..pretty rad! They make for a rad selfie.

Thanks for the pleasant experience!
