Casual Fall Looks!

Posted on: September 8th, 2014 by admin

It’s time for fall! And while I wouldn’t quite break out the  sweaters just yet here’s a few easy ways to transition your look to fall, a warm Charleston fall.

CP Shades Regina

This navy, red, and white flannel style tunic is perfect for transitioning into the cooler fall weather without being too warm.   It is a versatile pick that would pair perfectly with dark jeans, leggings, or tights and some worn leather boots.  You have the option to roll the sleeves up and button them into place to reveal black and white gingham inner layer at any time so rest assured that you will always be comfortable in this cozy piece.

These Bedstu’s lace up boots are the perfect tall boot to pair with leggings and that CP Shades top!


Textured Leggings

A pair of textured pants is essential for every fall closet, but even better than that is a pair that allow for some stretch!  These dark grey, stretchy leggings will add some edge to your outfit as they mimic the emergence of the barren tree branches of autumn.  Throw on an oversized sweater or a loose fitting shirt and get ready to be chic and cozy all at once.

Reversible Layered Silk Crew

Indulge in the spices of fall by spicing up your outfit with this top!  A unique opening in the back of this shirt reveals the silk multicolored button up beneath the heather grey long sleeved shirt.  The extended length of this shirt makes it a perfect candidate to be worn with crop jeans.  Go one step further and add a long chain, beaded, or pendant necklace to complete your look.

Embroidered Pouch Peacoat

Turn heads in this beautiful navy blue peacoat.  Covered and lined in an intricate woven design this coat will stand out from all of the military jackets you will see.  It can be worn over a thin shirt and will coordinate with almost any color pant.

 crop jacket

Wear this fun open front, stripped sweater over any solid fitted tee or tank top.  The length of this piece allows it to be paired with any style of pants so dress it up with some slacks or get comfy cozy on the couch with some cider.  Continue the fun of this piece by picking out a long textured or patterned necklace and get ready to be the fashionista the day.

When transitioning to fall you can’t forget your beauty regimen! Try Sheswai nude nails and Vapour’s lip lumping gloss in Bitten. Nude & Berry are sure fire ways to make any look perfect for fall!

Last but not least, change your scent! We all know nothing brings the feeling of fall on like a musky whiff of pine cones or the smell of a Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte. Try LURK organic fragrance from Ooh! Beautiful. They have a variety of deep scents made from luxurious oils.


Our beauty expert tries out REN!

Posted on: August 29th, 2014 by admin

Right after getting started with Ooh! Beautiful, I felt excitedly overwhelmed by the plethora of healthy skincare options that surrounded me.  I’m that cliche “kid in a candy shop” when it comes to cosmetics, skin and haircare — I just can’t help myself.  It’s in my genes … thanks, Mom!  At any rate, I was thrilled to have a chance to familiarize myself with a skincare line called REN.  I was especially thrilled because I’m always noticing beauty awards for their top-selling products featured in InStyle, Harper’s Bazaar, and Marie Claire, so naturally, this type of press peaked my interest!
