Blue Ruffles + Gold Tassels

Blue Ruffles + Gold Tassels

Hey Lux Babes! I hope you beauties had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend! Mine was filled with so much love and I totally ate too much! The juicy burger was so worth it. :) 

What is your go to style or outfit during the hot months?

This has to be one of my favorite dresses for the Spring/Summer time. The Boohoo dress is perfect for those days you want to be girly but comfortable. The sleeves are attached to the side and can be worn high (shown in the pictures above) or a little lower. The dress also shows just enough shoulder to give the romantic touch. 

#luxfashion tip: When searching for summer dresses make sure they are hot air friendly. Meaning look for cotton fabrics rather than silk or chiffon. Wearing cotton fabric will help your body breath rather than blocking your pores. The last thing you want is sweat to show through your clothes. 

Now let's get to the rest of the outfit, shoes and the handbag!  Let us take a moment for both....because they are so LUX! 

The sandals were a steal! These Justfab beauties where only $20 bucks compared to $90-$200 I saw online so when I scrolled past them on the website I had to immediately scroll back and purchase them. They are so comfortable and scream summer time! The tassels and fringe are just a perfect combination of girlyness. (I seriously have been trying to wear them with everything.)  I paired them with the nude, gold, stripe, and glitter handbag to give the outfit the perfect pop! 

What did you wear over the holiday weekend? Post it in the Facebook Group or tweet me on Twitter @pinkluxpl 

Have a wonderful week and remember to stay Lux!

Inbetweenie/Plus Size Fashion Show Recap

Inbetweenie/Plus Size Fashion Show Recap

On April 16th, 2016 the fabulous ladies above walked in the first Summer Inbetweenie/Plus Size Fashion Show brought to you by PinkLux & Belk at the Summit in Birmingham, AL. This women empowering event showcased fashion for the inbetweenie/plus size body and promoted local women entrepreneurs. 

The mission of this event was to show women how to dress their bodies no matter your size or shape.

The thought to have this event came to me after I watched countless models walk in the New York Fashion Show (online) but realized none showed the bodies of real women. The average woman wears a size 10 and up in the United States. However, only women wearing a 00-2 are being shown wearing the clothes from top designers. After evaluating the ladies I style struggles I realized there were only a few top brands that carry stylish inbetweenie and plus size fashion.  

Many times women say "Oh, I can't wear that" or "That won't look right on MY body". The ladies showed how breaking out of your shell and breaking all the rules in fashion bold colors, prints, and silhouettes can be worn on the inbetweenie (size 10-16) and plus size (size 18 and up) woman. 

I hope you enjoyed the show and found confidence to break the rules to show your true style! 

A fun empowering fashion show wouldn't be complete without giveaways, music, and vendors! A HUGE THANK YOU to DJ Love Deluxe for sponsoring the music. If you need a dj for your event book her HERE. She had the entire store dancing and pumped up during the event.

Top 10 Affordable Illuminators To Make You Glow

Top 10 Affordable Illuminators To Make You Glow

Spring is here and Summer is around the corner (screaming on the inside) during these two seasons it is all about having glowing skin with or without makeup. However, finding affordable illuminators can be a challenge because most have large particles of glitter which can make you look like a disco ball rather than a glowing goddess!

The purpose of an illuminating product rather it be powder, cream or liquid is to enhance (bring out) the feature you are applying it to on the face/body. It is the easiest way to achieve healthy, young looking skin in seconds.

When applying illuminators to the face it is important you apply them to the correct places so you do not enhance fine lines, pores, or patches of dry skin. This can cause you to look older NOT younger.

Just like buying foundations it is also important to pick the correct illuminator for your skin tone. An illuminator can be too dark, pink or orange just like a foundation. Try on the product to your inner and outer arm to see how it will look on the skin when you are different shades. Being a different shade can occur in the summer when you are tanned or in the winter when you are not tanned.

So if your top question is what can I use to have young glowing skin but on a budget, look no further this blog post is for you!

  • This is a liquid consistency product that can be used alone or to create a illuminating cocktail by mixing it with a foundation. 
  • Since it is based with pale pink pigments this will be perfect for fair to medium skin shades. 
  • The drops are perfect because you can add as many depending on if you want a strong glow or a natural glow.  

2. E.L.F Baked Highlight - $3

  • This is a smooth powder consistency product. Use a fluffy fan brush to get the perfect amount of product.

4. Circa Beauty Magic Hour Illuminating Glow - $14
