Leggings are the perfect go to item for the cooler seasons.
Coming around again is the ever so popular trend of
snake skin, leather and sequined leggings.

Every girl should have a few statement blazers, 
what's hotter than a blazer and a loose fitted v-neck?

Fall is one of the easiest seasons to dress for, it's all about layering.  I'm going to have to say that nearly everything looks good layered, of course there are rules to it.  You want to avoid looking bulky, do this by mixing different lengths and cuts (each garment should vary in length).

BTW, I'm new to Facebook like me :) 

You never know when I'll be posting a giveaway 
that may solely be announced on 1 social network

In today's video I'm showing you how I decided to wear my hair on the night that I tried the blonde wig for the first time. Unfortunately it did not work out for this particular outfit, so per usual, I've got a back up plan ;)


I purchased the heels from GoJane; however, I don't believe that this particular style is still available since they were purchased early in Spring 2012.

While searching for the pair seen in the video, I stumbled on this gorj. pair with that some triangle cutout detail!  *Heads to GoJane to purchase!*

My dress is from Target, such a great buy for $24. A serious STEAL
This is also no longer available in my area, and I believe it may be S/O online, I've provided you with an alternate of the same style, different print.

I absolutely adore how uniformed the packaging is.
It never fails.  It is always crisp 

Sept's Glossy Box came with some great things
including an excellent Oil Reducing Primer and a BB Cream foundation.
Unfortunately the foundation was in the wrong shade, so I 
decided to use it as an under eye highlight.  PERFECTION.

Glossy Box launched their lipstick! You all were asking me what 
I'd used on my lips in last week's video GLOSSY BOX Lipstick in the color - Glossy Pink

Dressing for work isn't rocket science, It's all a matter of knowing 
what is appropriate for your work environment and incorporating
Y O U R   P E R S O N A L   S T Y L E .


1 Always wear your smile, lets not ever mix business with pleasure.  The last thing you need is for all of your co workers to constantly ask you whats wrong, because you're wearing your Debbie Downer face.  NO NO and NO, save that for your personal time.

2 I keep my nails short. I personally don't have the time to sit and have a fill done every week.  I love to keep things fun by switching up my nail color every other day.  Call me crazy but a nice {DIY} manicure makes working much better, who wants to look at chipped nails? Not me.  Ladies, just remove the polish if you don't feel like getting your nails done or doing them yourself.  That awkward moment when you've noticed your nails look like crap so you spend all day trying to hide them from the public. . . AWKWARD. And whats worse is if I've caught you trying to hide your nails, it puts me in a bad place LOL. It's fine, we've all done it

Keep in mind, your office dress code
My office is quite laid back/business casual.  Strange enough, I feel over dressed at times but I simply can not walk into an environment looking any kind of way and expect to be taken serious. 3 I like to keep covered and wear at least 2 pieces up top [a blouse and a blazer/vest].  The only time I choose to skip out on the second layer is if my blouse is a statement alone. 

4 As for shoes, a black heel is always good. . . these happen to have spikes!  This is were I've added my flair for the day.  Many people will not notice the spike since I have chosen to wear these wide legged trousers-- Which happen to fit AMAZINGLY BTW ;)    

 Abide by the dress code 
but never skip out on your personal style

Not too often do I film makeup looks, previously I thought of them to be quite tedious. I've gotten into my new deal of wanting to give you all exactly what you want, that means adding a little bit of everything to the xGOLDN Channel. Though it is impossible to please each and every individual that crosses my channel, I will do my best.

Feel free to comment on this post and submit links
to look's you'd like to see me do.

Get into metallic pieces,  they always work for the F/W season's.  When we are all darkening up our look, adding a pop of metallic does the job of brightening things up.   
Metallic to Fall is like Neon to Summer
