The t-shirt slip dress look
Allure Of Simplicity
Aney, Allure Of Simplicity: "I've worn this lace slip over and over and over and over and over and over again. I've styled it with leather leggings, a denim jacket tied around the waist and even over a turtleneck. Now, adding this loose white tee and pairing it with slip-on sneakers, is a simple and easy way to make it more casual." Find out more about Aney's look, here.
The benefits of gold skincare
Chantal, Chantal McCulligh: "I've been using Allégresse 24K Gold Silhouette Moisturizer and for many amazing reasons... trust me, there are plenty of benefits of gold skin care.

Diorblush Light & Contour Duo Sculpting Sticks
