DANA SHECKTER

"Denim on Denim on Denim. Nothing quite screams west coast like denim. Many shy away from the denim suit, but it should be embraced. Denim never goes out of style. It’s a classic. Pair your denim suit with an embroidered blouse and booties to give it a fall vibe."

 "Beach Chic is what I like to call it. Casual enough to wear in a beach town, yet trendy enough to wear to a quick lunch in LA."

BECCA HIGHLIGHT, CHAMPAGNE POP: “A little swipe of champagne pop and you’re a glowing goddess even in the fall."

ELIZABETH AND JAMES, NIRVANA WHITE: "Some search a lifetime for their soul scent. Though I typically do not divulge this information, my signature scent is Nirvana White by Elizabeth and James. Perfect for day or night."

MAC, VIVA GLAM IV:  "Lots of people assume that fall means you have to bring out deep reds and browns but that could not be further from the truth. Neutrals work year round. This lipstick gives your lips a natural color and plump look that is perfect if you are trying to emulate the no-makeup makeup trend."

TOO FACED, NATURAL EYES & URBAN DECAY, NAKED 2: "My two favorite eye shadow palates are natural eyes by two faced and the naked 2 by Urban Decay. Natural Eyes gives you every shade of brown you could ever want ranging with options for every occasion. Naked Eyes has great base colors and also a great grey combo to build a base for a smoky eye."

MARBLE COASTERS: "Marble is the key to any room décor. These marble coasters spice up my white living room table."

VOLUSPA CANDLES: If it smells like fall then it is fall, right? The Voluspa candles have quickly become a favorite of mine. This candle is accessorized by a vintage match jar.

 

"This fall, pair any turtleneck with a leather jacket. This is my favorite look because it is so simple and works every time. This look is super versatile. "

"I chose these items because they are my go to's for everyday. I really like dark colors so most of my clothes and the accessories are follow the same colour scheme. I love jewellery and especially in the color gold."

I would describe my style as pretty unique. Even though I try and see whats "in" in the moment, I mostly just wear whatever I feel like. I really love dark colors even though I have a variation in my closet since I come from the Carribean. My style is either very colorful or dark/simple colors. I can go either way depending on my mood, but its mostly black and dark colors. Im trying to have more colors now since its fall so I'm trying to get with the season.

THIERRY MUGLER, ALIEN: "Contains notes of  jasmine sambac, cardamom, orange blossom, cumin, cashmeran, amber and heliotrope."

MICHEAL KORS, GOLD TONE BRADSHAW WATCH: "I love gold accents so this watch makes the perfect accessory! I find that watches also tend to add a touch of sophistication."

URBAN OUTFITTERS, ALIX OPAL CHOKER & SNAKE CHAIN WRAP CHOKER NECKLACE"Accessories have the power to elevate the simplest of ensembles. I love the way chokers add a little something more to each outfit!"

RAY BAN, GATSBY II SUNGLASSES: "I love the fit of these sunglasses, the shape is classic and the gold metal makes them standout."

MUSIC OF THE MOMENT: TORY LANEZ, LUV


NATASHA ZAKIR

"I wear a lot of monochromatic shades, I think that is perfect for the winter season. My go-to winter essential is an oversized scarf. Scarves can definitely spice up an outfit and just makes you look like you put effort into it. Not only will it keep you warm, it also makes you look chic. What more can you ask?"

RIFLE PAPER CO. PLANNER: "Winter usually means that the New Year is right around the corner so a planner is a must to own the next year. I usually look for a planner that is not only helpful but is aesthetically pleasing as well."

PERFUME (CHLOE & CHANEL): "I think everyone should wear perfume. I tend to splurge on fragrances because I believe smelling good is a great first impression and why not impress someone with a lil Chanel."

DIPTYQUE'S BAIES CANDLE: "I am an avid candle collector. My go-to brands are Diptyque’s Baies or Jo Malone’s Wild Fig & Cassis. I think candles are such a luxury and just adds that oomph to your day." 

LIPS (ANASTASIA, STILA, TARTE, NARS): "I always go for the same natural look with the same lip colour which is why I have tons of the same shade. My favorite lipstick colours range from mauves to deep pinks/browns. My absolute favorite is Anatasia’s Liquid lipstick in Ashton." 

BRACELET: This is my favorite bracelet I owned. My family is half Egyptian so I grew up around the evil eye a lot and have grew to love the meaning behind it. My mom is an avid collector of the evil eye and whenever I wear this bracelet it reminds me of her.
