So, it looks like the grass is in fact greener on the other side-in hair world. From Katy Perry to Kylie Jenner, the green hair fad is picking up some serious traction. Most people were a little apprehensive about a color that reminds them of their childhood days in the pool, leaving their hair a pukey-green color courtesy of the chlorine, but who knew green could be so cool? We did. Katy Perry mentioned a little while back that she wanted to dye her hair a “slime green” for spring and we were overly excited to see it. First of all, can Katy Perry do any wrong when it comes to hair color? Uhm, no. She has dyed her hair every color in the rainbow and rocked every single look. Second, when we actually saw it on her we were pleasantly surprised by how chic she made it look. She opted to keep her bangs and roots black and dyed the rest of her tresses what she has dubbed “slime green”. Lastly, when we saw Kylie Jenner follow suit and dye her ends green for Coachella, we definitely knew this was a trend that was “obsessed” worthy. There are many different shades of green to play around with, so why not freshen up for spring and have some fun with your hair? Is this a hair color you think you will be joining in on ?

 Who says you can’t be fabulous in the cold? It’s a cross between winter wonderland meets brightness and uniqueness.

Obsessed: Margot Robbie

swide_annexmagazine

When we think of good movies we’ve seen lately, Wolf of Wall Street definitely comes to mind. The character who’s name we can’t seem to get out of our head is that of blonde bombshell “Naomi,” played by the impossibly beautiful Margot Robbie.

Margo had already been generating a quiet but steady buzz through a supporting role in 2013′s About Time and her television roles in Neighbours and ABC’s Pan Am, but Wolf is the role that introduced her to the world. It may have been the first time many of us saw her, but it certainly won’t be the last!

The 23 year-old Australian actress has roles in four more blockbusters coming out this year and is already in negotiations for future projects as well. When you read the title of this post did you ask yourself, “Who’s Margot Robbie?” Trust me, it’s a name to remember.

Hold your breath, JLaw, this new starlet is about to be everywhere.

2.2

Chanel never fails to wow us with big accessories. From the hula hoop bag last Spring, to now gigantic pearls, Chanel knows just how to make a statement. While these statement pieces may be a tad unconventional if you wear them down the street, but magazine editors love the over sized accessories.

For Chanel’s Spring 2014 collection, you see the big pearls as necklaces, earrings and bracelets and these strikingly beautiful accessories are making it on many magazine covers. From Vogue Italia January, Vogue Australia January and Harper’s Bazaar UK February.

#Obsessed: Chanel Revives the Hair Bow Mania

Last week’s Chanel Metiers d’Art show, a wild west-themed show, brought not only amazing couture outfits but also brought back our beloved hair bows. Though people claim Gaga brought these back in 2011, these are a completely different class of hair bows. Whereas Gaga’s were a bit more cartoonish and exaggerated, the  hairstylist for the recent Chanel show, Sam McKnight, explains his vision was more of a sexy addition to already gorgeous tresses. Prior to the show he styled the bows using fake hair that would match each models hair color precisely and then attached them before they strut down the runway. This is a reoccurring fashion obsession, seeing as even Chanel has used it before in a more Gaga-esque way, but this is definitely coming back. The 90′s saw this hair style often, beginning with actual bows and then modernizing it with the idea of using actual hair as bows.

This is definitely going to be in my hair repertoire for the month of December and in case you need some help you can use this tutorial to aid you in becoming sexy and fashionable. Happy hairstyling!

Must Have Monday: Aedes de Venustas Candle, Phoenecis

Though this Barney’s candle has a tongue-twisting name to represent it, we can vouch that it is the highlight of our week and we are obsessed. The intricate  detail of the front of the candle resembles a medieval stamp and the gorgeous deep color would make a wonderful addition to any room in your home. This particular candle’s scent is that of “smoldering pine needles and incense ashes”, according to the Barney’s website, which could not be more perfect for the winter season. There are also three other scents to choose from; Cellarius, with scents of spices, rosewood and cedarwood, Mel Mellis, with scents of rosemary, juniper and lime, and finally, Indica, with scents of cedar, basil and opoponax. All of these products, and some others from the Aedes de Venustas collection, can be found here.

Winter is here and we finally get to bring out our (California-ized) winter wardrobe. But what makes me excited is to pair these stylish outfits with equally stunning winter-style make up.
