Posh Holiday Style! Target + Neiman Marcus Holiday

So Target  has a message for all of its imitators.  You can't be me. Exactly (I say that all the time lol). 

To prove it they are doing an EPIC mash up with Neiman Marcus just in time for the holidays.  The luxe retailer Neiman Marcus and bargin luxe Target have collaborated to create a limited collection of affordable holiday products from 24 top designers. There are lots of products to choose from like Tory Burch’s lunch box thermos, Diane von Furstenberg’s yoga mat, Tracy Reese’s dessert plates, a gorgeous  glass/barware set from Joseph Altuzarra and so much more. More from the website:

Celebrate 50 years of design with TargetNeiman Marcus and the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) through a limited-time-only collection by today's top designers. Out of this one legendary partnership come more than 50 gorgeous gifts by 24 of today’s top designers. So who are they? They’re a crafty crew of CFDA members and visionaries who love the holidays just as much as we do.


The goods (again read 50 items--chances of acquiring go up) will go on sale this Saturday, Dec. 1, 2012. Stay Posh!

Posh Style! Impressions


We experiencing that weird silly season in ATL. Seasonal limbo. That season when it's sort of fall and sort of late summer.  It causes mass confusion on how to dress. Some women delve head first into fall with boots and sweaters (sweat be damned) while others hold tooth and nail on to summer (flips flops, breezy dresses, shorts w/boots).  Tights? no tights? arghhhh.  I GIVE UP.

These ladies seemed to get it right. So for those of you as confused as I am right now about what to wear here is some inspiration.  Stay Posh!

Posh Obsessions! Birchbox

For today's post I am sharing a wonderful gift that was given to me for Bosses' Day. Drumroll please...a year's subscription to Birchbox! What is Birchbox you ask? Well for inquiring minds, here's the scoop from the website:

Birchbox delivers the best products and the best insider secrets, without any fuss. Every month Birchbox members receive a curated box of luxe beauty samples. Each box will span beauty categories and deliver exciting products that fit into both your day-to-day routine, and into those days when you want to turn up the drama a notch.



The other cool thing about Birch Box is that you can develop a profile so that the goodies that arrive are especially tailored for you.  I recently received my first shipment around the same time as a few other beauty junkies and we all received different items.  

My first impression is that I LOVE LOVE the concept.  FIRST BOX contents: a full-sized bar of handmade lavender soap (yowza!), a perfume sample, a ziplock bag (in their defense it did have designs but honestly at the end of the day...it was a ziplock bag), a vial of lip and cheek stain and nail polish remover cloths (ho hum).  A lickle (as Adele would say) random.

After a beauty junkie pow-wow, we all surmised that the reason for our lackluster first shipments was due to timing. Because they were sent at the end of the month instead of the best of the best we got the best of what was left. Nonetheless,  I hold out big hopes for next month's box which will be curated based on my tastes and preferences. Yay!

Despite my first box experience, there are definitely more pros to this than cons. I wholeheartedly love the idea of a monthly supply of beauty surprises waiting at my doorstep! I highly recommend you try it for yourself and let me know what you think.  Stay Posh!

PS Also check out glossybox.com for a similarly cool concept. I am going to join and will let you know what I think.

Posh Possessions! JCrew Viv Flats

I was recently in Orlando for business. While it was a productive trip, I have to say after a stressful week the highlight of the trip was a late night trek to the Orlando Premium Outlets with co-workers on our final night in town.  I was all a tither about the Barney's New York outlet but in the end I didn't find anything there I could not live without. Sigh. Disappointment begin to set in.  Would I really leave empty handed?

In a last minute bid of desperation for retail therapy I popped into JCrew 10 minutes before closing.  And look what I found...Viv Flats. Sooo Janelle Monae. Love.  Now mind you I have the high heeled version of these lovelies in three different colors...but that's another story for another time. In the meantime, Stay Posh!

Posh Beauty! Black|Up Paris Lipstick


So Poshinistas, I ask you...who doesn't want to be want of those women with a special beauty product that was procured in Paris.  I mean, absolutely the height of chicness.  Enter Black|Up makeup.  My friends and I discovered it while wandering through the famous Printemps department store in Paris. 

According to the website ..."Founded in 1999 black|Up Cosmetics is both the first makeup artist brand created and specialized for women of color, as well as an upscale cosmetics line of unprecedented elegance and luxury, respecting the unique nature of ethnic skins and celebrating their intrinsic beauty. Black|Up is France's #1 ethnic makeup brand.  Wow, so there you have it. 

Ok back to Printemps.  We spent the whole of an hour playing with all of the wonderful colors.  In the end, all I know is that each of us found our own unique shade of lipstick and we fully represent the varying hues of beauty... In true Miss Posh Life form I of course found 4 colors that I love.  The application is UH-mazing. Matte and moisturizing at the same time.  Excellent coverage without feeling heavy. I am not quite sure  how they did it.

Here are a few picts, swatches and the color in action. Also, don't forget to check out www.funkidivagirl.com for more on Black|Up. Stay Posh!
