Daily Obsesh - Marc by Marc Jacobs 10th Anniversary Apple Studs

Happy Anniversary to Marc by Marc Jacobs!!!


The eponymous diffusion line is now a decade old (!) and it's been 10 years of total trend setting. From must-have handbags to bold baubles and trinkets, Marc by Marc Jacobs came on to the downtown scene and absolutely took over to redefine what it means to be 'super cool'.


So celebrate this legendary designer with these rose gold plated apple stud earrings (they also come in silver). The pretty pink posts feature pave crystals and green enamel inlay apple leaves. They perfectly epitomize the inspiration that this famous collection gets from all things retro and whimsical.


As they say, good things come in small packages!

It's Gonna Be A Red Hot Fall!

When one thinks of Autumn, visions of burnished oranges, brick reds and shades of brown and camel dance through the head.


And while these staple hues are still welcome for the cooler months ahead, there's a new color in town and it's making a bold impression! Bright, saturated hues of cherry and true red are popping up all over the Fall season runways.


From cozy overcoats to patent pumps, from glossy lips to shiny nail lacquers ... there's no question that red hot it the new hot hue!

Daily Obsesh - Jemma Kidd Mini Liners

They say the eyes are they window to the soul and there is so much you can tell someone from just a look.


If that's true, then let's accentuate them and make our peepers pop with these Mini Liners from Jemma Kidd!


We love the colored eyeliner trend (Tip - Try lining your bottom lid for an intense and unique look!). This Jemma Kidd liner set is perfect and comes with four different color eyeliners - black, brown, green, and blue. This lets you customize how much intensity you want each time; and since they're all miniature, you can take them with you everywhere and decide as you go!


Now turn up that "smize" ... the world is watching.

Bag of the Week - Soft Slouchy Crescent Bag

Having a super-duper soft, slouchy leather purse is kind of like having a cuddly teddy bear or your favorite blanket as a child.


You can love it, comfort yourself with it, and it has to go everywhere you go because, well ... it's your binkie. There's no denying the warm feeling you get inside knowing it will always be by your side.


So if you're in the market for a friend, then we recommend this supple blue baby available at NeedSupply.com. The creamy color of the leather looks just as soft as it actually is, and the best part? You won't even spend $50 for it!

Daily Obsesh - Peter Pan Collar Top

Peter Pan collar tops were all the rage on the Fall 2011 runways.


'It; girls like Alexa Chung and Carey Mulligan have modernized the modest neckline and made it a top trend for the upcoming season. It's oh-so office appropriate for all you working girls, yet still hip enough for the downtown crowd.


Tap into your inner ingenue with this perfect piece from Zara. The printed top comes in a deliciously rich salmon color and is printed with little white pooches all over it! Made of 100% silk, and finished with a stark black Peter Pan collar, it's a must-have for your fall wardrobe!


We suggest tucking it into a pair of slouchy palazzo trousers or wearing it loose with some black skinny pants and pointy flats.

Beauty Pick Me Up - Skin Flaws? Masque It!

Facial and spa treatments that we used to get at our favorite salon are now becoming more and more readily available in at-home versions.


One such beauty product that's effective and super simple to DIY is the facial mask. Whether it comes in mask or peel form, the facial mask is a quick way to rectify any skin type. You just have to know what to look for!


Well, that's where we come in. Check out our tips for the best type of facial mask for different skin types, then click on the slideshow to see some of our favorites!



Normal Skin - This is a simple one! For you, a facial mask should just be for maintenance and prevention. Look for moisturizing face masks chock full of vitamin C or anti-oxidants. Apply a face mask once every 2 weeks.



Oily Skin - Look for a clay mask or a facial peel that will mattify and control shine. Steer clear of anything that's super moisturizing as this can lead to even more shine. Try a mask once a week for optimum results!



Dry Skin - A facial mask once a week can do wonders for dry skin. Look for options that have vitamin E and are highly moisturizing. A quick tip for a little added hydration? Smooth on a dime sized amount of night cream after your done with the facial mask!

Platform pumps and embellished dresses and skirts are a little inappropriate for English 101, but you don't have to be stuck in the same hoodie and jeans all semester either! Look for stylish pieces that are comfortable, versatile and ... most importantly for all college students ... a good deal!
