Fashion Friday: Looks From NYFW That Embody DC Style

New York City Skyline

By Kristen Booth

New York Fashion Week always brings a new era on the fashion scene in more places than just New York City. Every year, in September and February, DC is also taken by storm and given a ton of new fashion to love and obsess over. So, needless to say, this year’s NYFW was no exception! We have searched and searched for hours on end, and these are just a few of the looks that we think really embody DC style and could easily take the nation’s capitol by surprise.

From chic shift dresses to fun and flirty tank tops, here are the perfect outfits for anything, whether that means a day at the office, or shopping the streets of Georgetown.  There is something for everyone and everything! These looks, among so many more that are sure to be a hit in DC and cities all over the US, really embody what the DC fashion scene is all about.  A little more conservative, but still extremely trendy and chic, we think that the fashion and style of Spring/Summer 2015 is going to be amazing.  Certainly a season to remember!

Foxy Thursday: Find Your Perfect Matte

By Carly Davis

Wish you were in London for London Fashion week? With airfare and hotel, that could cost you a pretty penny. At least there’s Butter London, where you can get a *taste* of London–taste meaning there is a hint of vanilla in all their lipsticks.  It’s not exactly like *being* in London, but at $22 per stick, and watching a live stream of London Fashion Week, you can’t beat that.

If you’re looking for a lipstick with a flawless matte finish that’s long-lasting and moisturizing, Butter London has your perfect matte. Their line of moisturizing matte lipsticks contain a triple butter formula of Mango Seed Butter, Murumuru Seed Butter, and Capuacu Seed Butter for rich, creamy, and lasting moisture.

Old Blighty: An informal and typically affectionate term for Britain, chiefly used by soldiers in World War I, and World War II.
Macbeth: Double, double toil and trouble; Shakespeare’s shortest tragedy.
Ruby Murray: Cockney slang for curry.
Primrose Hill Picnic: Primrose Hill is a famous park in North West London frequented by rock stars, yummy mummies, actors, and paparazzi.
Abbey Rose: A nod to the birthplace of many rock ‘n roll classics.

Wishlist Wednesday: NYFW Looks We Love

By Kristen Booth

As we all know, NYFW was last week… And as usual, designers left so many looks and pieces in their tracks that we are absolutely obsessed with. Every season following fashion week, we sit and pine over all of the fabulous new fashion we have been gifted with, and we plan how we will wear it, what we will wear it to, and (the biggest question of all for some of us…) how we will adjust our budget to afford it.

So, here are a few of the things that we will be adding to our list of items to watch (very closely!). This is by no means an all-inclusive list, but we had a limit to how much we could include!

Are you loving these as much as we do? We just can’t get enough of these dresses and so many more! What do you think of these pieces? Do you have your eyes on something we forgot to add? Let us know by commenting below. We’d love to hear from ya!

Wishlist Wednesday: Swimsuit Steals

By Kristen Booth

Labor Day has come and gone and now that NYFW is wrapping up and coming to an end, the summer has officially ended in our books. While that may bring a little sadness to most of our lives, the one perk is that all the good stuff that is still left over from summer is on sale now! Last week’s Wishlist Wednesday post was all about different End-of-Summer sales, but this week we focus on just the bathing suit sales, and let me tell ya, there are some really good ones going on now!

Target

With tons of options in their sale section right now, I can assure you that you’ll have a hard time limiting yourself to just a few!

Nordstrom

While these are only a select few of the many many great sales that are out there, we simply didn’t have the time (or space…) to list all of the ones that we thought were great. But, feel free to let us know if there are any really great sales that we missed! What do you think of these amazing sales that are going on now? Have you stumbled upon an equally awesome sale on suits or maybe one that’s even better?

Foxy Thursday: Hairstyle Comebacks

By Carly Davis

Surprising hairstyles have made a comeback this summer. Two of our favorites are the bandana and, believe it or not, the scrunchie. While these are not always easy to pull off, there are multiple ways to wear them to fit your own personal style, and keep you cool in the summer heat. Check out these celebs and the multiple ways to style the classic bandana:

Alessandra Ambrosio

Rihanna

Candice Swanepoel

The scrunchie adds a nice touch to a traditional pony tail. Selena Gomez and Jennifer Lopez experiment with their scrunchies, using them with a braid and with a bun, while Cressida Bonas opts for a more messy half-up, half-down look.

Foxy Thursday: Inner Strength and Outer Beauty

At Dewdrop, we’re actively donating to local and national causes, so naturally we find organizations that do the same very appealing. Pravana’s new line of hair care products, Nevo, is not only packaged in 100 percent biodegradable bottles, but five percent of sales is donated to City of Hope, towards the fight against cancer.

Nevo products are 100 percent Vegan and Gluten-free, and they are also free of harmful and damaging ingredients such as Sulfates, Phthalates, Parabens and Propylene Glycol. This collection is fortified with exotic ingredients including Mulatiero Extract and Babassu and Brazilian Nut oils, which have never been used in hair care before. This unique elixir delivers long-lasting inner strength and outer beauty.

If you want to upgrade your hair care regiment, try out any (or all) of their products that range from Hydra Pearls to Intense Therapy leave-in treatment.

Foxy Thursday: If You Hate Perfume…

By Carly Davis

The CB Manifesto insists on why perfume is to be hated: “Perfume is too often an ethereal corset trapping everyone in the same unnatural shape,” and it is “a lazy inelegant concession to fashionable ego.”

Whether you agree or not, you can smell as lovely as the flowers that are not so readily found near this Brooklyn-based fragrance house.

CB I Hate Perfume’s Rare Flowers project by perfumer Christopher Brosius includes rare floral fragrances of Jasmine Sambac, Neroli, Narcissus, Jonquil, Champaca and Tuberose. Each scent in this special collection of fragrances is made with one single floral absolute. They are entirely natural, and among the most rare, exquisite and expensive materials in the perfumer’s palette.

So, if you’re more interested in a perfume that “is a veil that reveals the soul” or one that is “the fanfare of our individuality sounding differently to everyone who listens,” check out CB I Hate Perfume’s Rare Flowers Collection and smell better than any synthetic replication.

 

Would you try this? Do you agree?

Wishlist Wednesday: Eyeshadow Palettes

One thing that has been increasing in popularity in the recent past is the eyeshadow palette.  They have been around forever but they kind of seem to go in and out of being something that everyone has or wants. Well, right now they are super hot and consequently there are a ton of amazing pallets out there. While some are a little pricier than others, we are definitely a proponent of spending a few extra dollars on beauty products. After all, they are going on your face so we really should try and only use the best of the best (or the best that your budget can afford!).  However, at the end of the day, it is just about finding the right one for you and your taste. So, here are a few of our faves that we are loving!

Motivation Monday: End of Summer Bucket List

Life’s bucket list not working out for you? We don’t blame you. One ticket to Beyoncé’s concert can range anywhere from $100 to more than a thousand dollars. Backpacking across Europe can be pretty pricy unless you’re willing to couch surf and restrain yourself from spending too much on food and clothing. You’d also probably have to brush up on your French and start working out again to prepare for your excursion across the Pyrenees mountains.

If only it were that easy for those of us with horrendous hand-eye coordination.

Why not have an end-of-summer bucket list. Life bucket list sounds too daunting, and if you feel like the summer is breezing on by without you doing something productive or doing something for yourself, there’s still time. You might not have the money, physical ability, mental preparation, or whatnot to accomplish some of the things on your bucket list, but it’s better to start somewhere than sitting around and watching your life bucket list grow.

Of course, there are a myriad of things you could do over the next two months (in our minds, it’s not really over until you have to put on a jacket and boots), but here’s a list of 10 things to start off your end of summer bucket list:

  1. Read a book. We recommend Chronicle of a Death Foretold by Gabriel García Márquez. If you’re searching for something with a little more volume, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer is the way to go (I recommend buying this one in print since it includes pictures and some crazy  typographical effects).                                
  2. DIY bleached denim shorts/shirts. Time to update that wardrobe. And impress all your friends and family.
  3. Donate clothes that you don’t wear or don’t fit you anymore. The less clutter you have, the better you’ll feel. You’ll also have more room for new clothes.
  4. Learn how to make a mean smoothie. Mmm, those antioxidants. 

    An orange raspberry smoothie from Nutribullet Recipes.

  5. Learn a new recipe!
  6. Get a new haircut. Goodness knows you’ve been needing one. Maybe get some bangs, ombre hair coloring, or try out that new pixie cut that’s been all the rage lately.
  7. Go for a walk around Great Falls Park. Admire the majesty of the Potomac. Repeat. 

    One of the few opportunities where you can use the hashtag #nofilter.

  8. Learn a little bit of a new language! Ex. Hallå means “hello” in Swedish!
  9. Learn how to play “I’m Yours” on the ukulele. Because this kid did it and it’s adorable.
  10. Learn a new dance. Café Citron in Dupont Circle offers free salsa lessons on Wednesday nights from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. Meet new people and learn how to salsa!

Luckily, in D.C., there’s no shortage of things to do. While there are plenty of things you can do from home, why not go out and explore what your neighborhood has to offer?  

Fashion Friday: What Are Millennials Really Chasing After?

By Kristen Booth

Fashion Friday: Quality Vs. Quantity - Prada Vs. Forever 21

Mellianials, also referred to as Generation Y, are defined as the “demographic cohort following Generation X.” There is no formal start or end to either generation, Gen Y is usually recognized as those born between the early 1980s and the early 2000s. For as long as millennials have been shopping, marketers have been trying (and struggling) to determine what these shoppers want and how they want to purchase it. For many of these marketers, a majority of their frustration comes from the fact that as soon as they feel like they have figured out this group of people and their purchase preferences, these preferences change. In other words, Gen Y is always keeping it fresh, keeping marketers and retailers on their toes. Fashion Friday: Quality Vs. Quantity - H&M In the previous years, it has seemed that millennials have sought quantity of quality, preferring stores and brands such as Forever 21 and H&M, in addition to many other stores with similar strategies. All of these stores offer trendy clothes, shoes, and accessories at a much lower price, allowing shoppers the ability to purchase mass amounts of clothing with a total that is more appealing than a single item would cost with most designer labels. Another attractive quality of these stores is that they have their entire collection online, with the option to shop on the Internet, however they also have brick and mortar locations. This quality is appealing to this group of people because they have also seemed to prefer “shopping” online, but actually purchasing in the store where they can see and try on the merchandise before parting with their dollars. Fashion Friday: Quality Vs. Quantity
While this idea of fast-fashion has been all the trend in the recent past, many millennials are getting tired of purchasing these clothes that are essentially recyclable and can only be worn a few times before needing to be replaced. With this fatigue has come the return of popular luxury goods and designer clothing. The fallout of this new trend in fast fashion has come primarily from this idea that it’s essentially recyclable. When many shoppers look back on their annual spending, they are seeing how high their total bill is coming to in comparison to what they still have in their possession. The result? Not as attractive as they may have once thought this idea of inexpensive clothing and accessories was – in translation, more is actually not always better. Fashion Friday: Quality Vs. Quantity - Jimmy Choo With this revelation has come a shift in the purchasing behavior that marketers and retailers have begun to notice in the recent past. That $2,000 Givenchy bag or that $1,100 pair of Jimmy Choo pumps that once seemed to be outrageous, now may not be that ridiculous and out of reach. This return of the popularity of high fashion does not necessarily mean that ever 22-year old college graduate is rushing out to the nearest Neiman Marcus or Saks Fifth Avenue and giving their wardrobe a face-life at the start of each season. However, it does mean that in regards to wardrobe staples such as a classic pair of black or nude pumps, a little black dress, or a practical and classic everyday bag, these millennial shopper are more willing to bite the bullet and pay the premium prices for these products that they know will last a lifetime in their closet without going out of style.

Foxy Thursday: Beat the Bite

By Carly Davis

As the weather is starting to cool off, you’re probably planning for your annual camping trip. If so, having a good bug spray on hand is a must-have.

While wearing long sleeves, and staying indoors will keep you bite-free, it isn’t the most realistic option. With gorgeous mountain ranges less than an hour away from the DC area, investing in a good repellent will not only protect your skin, but it will help you savor your outdoor experiences.

We’ve found some of the best smelling and most protective bug repellents so you can show some skin, and keep it clear and bite-free!

BURT’S BEES HERBAL INSECT REPELLENT ($8): All natural repellent made with lemongrass, citronella and soybean oils.

SPINSTER SISTERS CO. BODY BUTTER INSECT REPELLENT ($20): All natural and handcrafted body butter to repel mosquitos, gnats, and horseflies.

REPEL LEMON EUCALYPTUS INSECT REPELLENT SPRAY ($9): A plant based repellent made from the oil obtained from the Eucalyptus citriodora tree, that repels mosquitos and deer ticks for up to 6 hours.

AVON SKIN SO SOFT BUG GUARD ($16): Provides strong and dependable repellency against mosquitos, deer ticks, gnats, no-seeums, sand flies, and black flies.

 

WONDERCIDE ($12): Biter Fighter Natural & Organic Insect Repellent with a fresh lemongrass scent. DEET-free and completely non-toxic, and acts as a safe and effective moisturizer.

 

Helpful tips:

  1. Avoid wearing perfumes (some may attract mosquitos).
  2. Know your insects and be aware of your surroundings! If you can’t get to your spray fast enough, avoid standing water and untended grassy areas to stay mosquito and tick free!
  3. Try some home remedies! According to Good Housekeeping, you can drink a tablespoon or two of organic apple cider vinegar, eat lots of garlic, and take vitamin B1 (daily) to help repel insects.
  4. Seek products that are DEET-free: Concentrations higher than 30% can be absorbed through the skin and can be toxic.

Foxy Thursday: Aqua Seal Your Look

By Carly Davis

It’s hard to keep your makeup intact when you’re out and about in the summer heat. Waterproof mascaras keep your lashes looking flawless even after jumping in the ocean or pool; however, the rest of your makeup melts and washes away. For those of you who would like to look as flawless pre-beach as you do afterwards, try Make Up For Ever’s Aqua Seal.

What is is: This amazing liquid converter, that is alcohol-free and ophthalmologist tested, transforms powder formulas and pencils into smudge-proof, water-proof, long lasting makeup.

What it does: Instantly creates life-proof makeup products, while simultaneously intensifying pigments and shimmer for a dramatic, long lasting result.

Aqua Seal: $21

 

Simply mix a few drops of Aqua Seal with your makeup product and apply immediately. Be sure to clean your brushes after use in order to prevent the hardening of bristles, and head to your destination smudge free!

Aqua Seal is available on the Make Up For Ever website or at Sephora.

Foxy Thursday: Luscious Nails

By Carly Davis

7d4da13bb86939d4ecab1194e025edfe

Some women feel naked without wearing lipstick or a particular piece of jewelry, and some women may feel their best when they have freshly painted nails. We, at Dewdrop, love Essie nail polish.

For those of you who aren’t adventurous with nail design and stick to single color coated nails, Essie supplies the best quality for the best price. However, at almost $9 a bottle, it would add up to purchase every new trending color, but adding one or two colors each season will help keep your nail game at its best as your color palettes change with the weather.

Untitled

Essie’s 2014 Summer (left) and Neon (right) Collections offer a wide selection of summer-trendy colors.

Untitled2

 

 

 

Keep in mind…While expanding your color wardrobe is a priority, it’s also worthwhile to invest in Essie’s collection of nail care products. In leading hectic lives, it’s easy to swipe on a new nail color and run out the door, waving our hands like lunatics hoping they dry in time. However, nail care is extremely important. Our nails may become brittle, weak, and discolored from various causes, including the weather, poor care, and time. Essie has over a dozen products, from top coats to anti-aging formulas, to help nourish and protect our jewels.

“Fill in the Gap” (Anti-Aging) [$10]: Fortified with nutra-keratin and bamboo extract, this base coat fills in ridges and conceals imperfectins

Apricot Cuticle Oil [$8.50]: Provides nourishing moisture for smoother and softer cuticles.

All in One [$10]: Serves as a top coat, base coat and strengthener.

 

What are your essential Essie colors and products?

Wishlist Wednesday: Handbag Heaven

By Kristen Booth

One thing we have been on the lookout for lately is a new handbag. However, when it comes to accessories such as these, we always seem to love and want the things that are way out of our price range. The specific item this time? Prada Saffiano Gardener’s Tote Bag.

While this may be the bag we’re drooling over and dreaming about, with a price tag of more than $2,000 it does not look like that is anything we will be indulging in anytime soon.  So, to ease the pain a little, here are some similar options that won’t break your bank and land you in massive credit card debt!

MICHAEL Michael Kors Saffiano Dressy Tote

Tory Burch Robinson Double Zip Handbag

kate spade new york Cedar Street – Elissa Leather Tote

Wishlist Wednesday - Kate Spade New York Cedar Street Elissa Leather Tote

Nordstrom, $368

So, while these three may not be the Prada we’re looking for, they’re not a bad second choice! And, they’re similar enough that we absolutely love all of these as well (maybe not as much, but sometimes you have to sacrifice a little!).

So, what handbag have you been looking at lately? Do you have any suggestions for a better dupe of our beautiful Prada bag? Let us know what you think of our choices in the comments below!
