2018 Spring Trends!

Spring 2018 is all about this Millennial Pink, industrial-grade rubber, and the bag you denied your whole life. Read the Spring 2018 trends below!

Ruching: Who needs stiff corsetry when ruching is so much more comfortable? Fabric gets pushed around this spring with DIY pull-through details at Tory Burch, Kardashian-worthy curve-huggers at Tom Ford, and boudoir details at No. 21.

ss2018-final-0000-ruching-1508793032

X-Gril Sunglasses: This ’90s sunglass shape is back. It comes in the form of razor edges, Oakley-esque touches, and a fearless experimentation with color.ss2018-final-0002-sunglasses-1508793028

Dark Denim Sets: We’re not crazy enough to retire our vintage, light-wash Levi’s, but dark denim is seeing a resurgence. The selvage textile is doing double duty, with sleek Texas tuxedos showing up at Alexander McQueen, Rosie Assoulin, and more.ss2018-final-0006-denim-1508793030

Transparent: Go clear this season with all your favorite designers. Chanel convinced us we need an OTK rain boot, Tibi’s has us considering over a plastic corset, and Off-White’s plastic-wrapped collab with Jimmy Choo already man a fan out of Rihanna.

ss2018-final-0008-clear-1508793029

Puffed Shoulders: The delicate puff shoulder trend might be inspired by vintage-loving Instagram influencers, but it went high fashion with Christian Siriano’s emerald gown and Delpozo’s not-so-wearable-but-equally-lovable tulle detail.

ss2018-final-0009-puff-sleeve-1508793030

White Tank Top: Given Hanes’ collab with both Re/Done Jeans and stylist Karla Welch, the basic white tee is key. Spring, however, belongs to its scrappier sister: the white tank top. Despite its problematic nickname (hint: A Streetcar Named Desire may have inspired this alias), the ribbed top is getting an upgrade with screen printing at CALVIN KLEIN, twists at Alexander Wang, and layered under sheer florals at Miu MIu.ss2018-final-0010-white-tank-1508793027

Rubber: “100% Nitrile / Synthetic Rubber” read CALVIN KLEIN’S industrial-grade pencil dress. You’ll never look at your mother’s dishwashing gloves the same way again, with brands taking rubberized materials and molding them into unexpectedly chic silhouettes (like a pair of Balenciaga Crocs).

ss2018-final-0012-rubber-1508793029

White Suiting: If fall suiting belonged to gray plaid, then spring is all about a clean slate. The white suit isn’t just for prim and proper presidential events either, but was cut as an oversized tux at Adam Lippes, styled with a bra at Tom Ford, and wentSaturday Night Fever with Acne Studios.

ss2018-final-0013-white-suit-1508793026

Black & White Polka Dots: Floral might be your go-to spring print, but polka dots will be a close second come next year. The print was spotted everywhere, most notably as a monochrome colorway.

ss2018-final-0014-polka-dot-1508793028

Asymmetrical Neckline: Square up this season with a neckline subtly throwing it back to the Renaissance. Featured at Carolina Herrara, Christian Dior, and Rodarte’s first collection shown in Paris, we predict the flattering style to appear as dainty cotton tops, cocktail wiggle dresses, and every style in between.

ss2018-final-0015-asymmetrical-1508793027

Fanny Pack: We can deny it no longer: the fanny pack is here to stay. No matter your aesthetic, there’s a hip-slung bag for you: strap on a sporty number from Rihanna’s runway, go minimalist with Rochas, or wear it on the diagonal with Balenciaga.

ss2018-final-0017-fanny-pack-1508793028

Lavender: Victoria Beckham and Michael Kors Collection are hinting that Millennial Pink will be replaced by pastel-adjacent lavender come springtime. This soft purple hue is the next it-color, making a turn in knits, suiting, and whimsical formal wear.

ss2018-final-0018-lavender-1508793027

Feathers: Saint Laurent and Maison Margiela are birds of a feather flocking together. Their plucky runways trimmed their designs in marabou, making for a flirty look that takes flight next season.

Winter Skincare & Beauty Essentials!

We are sharing our favorite winter skincare & beauty favorites! Our skin goes through some serious changes during the winter. It’s really important to keep your skin hydrated and to not have your skin looking dull.

  1. Mac prep and prime is a wonderful way to keep your skin hydrated and keeping your makeup looking great all day.
  2. Charlotte Tilbury face moisturizer is one of our favorites! We have been noticing it has been minimizing our pores and provides a wonderful glow.
  3. Philosophy body wash is the one wash that doesn’t leave you squeaky clean. We hate that feeling in the winter because it feels like it’s stripping all of your natural oils. This body wash keeps you feeling clean, but moisturized.
  4. Lano lips is one lip balm we cannot get enough of! It keeps them hydrated for so long and you don’t feel like you need to keep re-applying.
  5.  Caudalie Vinosource Overnight Recovery Oil is the perfect accessory to your night time routine. Since we are all feeling a little extra dry this is the best item to put on your face before you go to sleep. It will keep your skin feeling soft and supple.
  6. Old Hendriksen scrub and vitamin C serum are two items we cannot live without. It’s so important to use a scrub all year around, but especially in the winter. It will remove all that dead skin that will keep you from looking radiant. The vitamin C serum is just another item we love to keeping our skin looking healthy. It gives your skin that extra boost that we all need in the winter.
  7. Mists’s are one of our favorite ways to keep our skin moist and keep your makeup set throughout the day. We’ve shared three of our favorites in this list!
  8. Tony Moly face masks are an affordable way to give your skin some extra love. We use these once a week while we are watching some of our favorite Netflix shows! Transform dull, tired skin into healthy, moisturized skin in as little as 20 minutes!as

JUST IN: Golden Globe’s Nominee “This Is Us” Chrissy Metz To Be Keynote Speaker At The Elisa Project’s Life Lessons Lunch On February 28!

Thank you My Sweet Charity for the wonderful article!

“The Golden Globe nominees were revealed Monday and Chrissy Metz is once again nominated for her role as Kate Pearson on NBC’s “This Is Us.” But her success and fame didn’t come overnight or easily. Chrissy’s life story is one that screenwriters dream of. Sure, she went through the trials and tribulations that many actresses face like being out of work, surviving thanks to friends and family, watching roles won by others and learning to accept rejection.

Chrissy-Metz-Headshot-768x512

But Chrissy dealing with a literally “bigger” issue — her weight. Admitting that she was born chubby, she was just 11 when she went to Weight Watchers. Her weight jumped up and down the scales at one point losing 50 pounds only to “gain back 100 pounds due to depression and ‘eating my feelings.’”

Then the moment came when all the stars were in alignment and she landed the role of Kate, whose storyline was so akin to Chrissy’s. But even more than the role, Chrissy’s popularity has been due to her being so open about her dealing with her weight issues.

For that reason, The Elisa Project organizers are thrilled that they have just gotten word that Chrissy will be at the 13th Annual Life Lessons Luncheon on Wednesday, February 28, at Brook Hollow Golf Club for a conversation with Kimberly Schlegel Whitman.

According to Luncheon Chair Kim Bannister, “As an organization dedicated to the development of healthy children and adolescents by raising awareness of body image and self-esteem issues and the prevention of life-threatening eating disorders, we know Chrissy will truly captivate attendees as she shares her own inspirational stories of courage and self-acceptance. This year’s luncheon is not to be missed!”

Honorary co-chairs will be Sandra Estess and Elizabeth Estess Hughes.

Starting at $2,000, tables are available for purchase now. If space permits, individual tickets will go on sale in early February. Suggestion: Gather up pals and get a table locked down now. Don’t depend on those individual spots coming available.”
