Tom Ford Nudes



One of the best things about the color nude is that it isn’t strictly seasonal. A good nude can be worn in every season, when done appropriately! Tom Ford is a celebrity favorite that has extreme quality, color pay off, and glamour. Here are a few of my winter to spring nude picks from his beauty, polish, and eyewear line. High-end pieces are great to complete your makeup collection for days you want a little luxury in your life!

1:  Nail Lacquer, Sugar Dune – Tom Ford Beauty $32
Pair this nude with light colors for a fresh spring inspired look, or pair with a dark jeans and a sweater to keep things winter chic.

2: Ultra Shine Lip Gloss, Sugar Pink – Tom Ford Beauty $45
More of a pink toned nude, great for adding a little color to a dark smokey eye or bronze makeup look. 

3: Lip Color Sheer, In the Buff – Tom Ford Beauty $49
A beautiful nude that everyone needs in their collection. Wear it in the spring with a sundress for the ultimate weightless look. 

4: Ultra Shine Lip Gloss, Naked – Tom Ford Beauty $45
The perfect pale nude for any look. Pair it with just mascara for a beautiful natural everyday look.

5: TOM FORD Angelina Sunglasses – $380
A splurge for the girl who loves sunglasses. Beautiful when paired with all colors. Gold jewelry and a nude lip would go perfect with these large frames.

Happy splurging.

The Look For Less: Kardashian Edition!

Love them or hate them, you can’t deny the Kardashian’s have a taste for what’s hot in fashion. From vintage Moschino to Tom Ford looks straight off the runway, you can bet one of the 3 sisters of reality TV’s most loved and hated family has it first.

Kim Kardashian’s post baby body is better than ever, and she has been showcasing a much lighter style in the past few months. While having dinner at Hotel Costes in Paris with Fiancé Kanye West, Kim sported a high-wasted PVC pencil skirt by Tom Ford. Pairing it with a simple white tee and suede Azzedine Alaia heels, the look was fresh, crisp, and perfect for an evening in the city of love!

Kim’s peachy Paris ensemble totaled somewhere around $2,200.00 total. Want to create the look for less? Here are some fashion swaps that are just as cute, and won’t break the bank!

Kim Kardashian and Kanye go out for dinner

Kim’s white tee is easily swapped with one of your choice. Try this TOPSHOP roll pocket crop tee for $20.00 for a young but stylish vibe.

This look is all about the skirt. The PVC material gives a unique shape to the body and the light that reflects off the material gives a glamorous feel to even a simple white tee-shirt. Kim went with a Tom Ford piece that was straight from the runway, totaling around $1,396.00. Swap it out for this Castalia nude patent leather skirt for $127.00 instead.

The heels in this look are a celebrity favorite right now, the Azzedine Alaia suede circle sandal. These retail for around $760.00. To complete your recreated look, try these Zara leather wide heel sandals instead for $80.00. The functionality and quality will be wonderful, and it has the same strappy vibe as Kim’s.

Achieving your own Kim Kardashian inspired look without spending all of your savings is possible! After recreating the look with these pieces, you save around $1,973.00 without sacrificing a bit of glamour. Whoever said magic isn’t real CLEARLY never learned to bargain shop.
