Post to Twitter

Limited Edition Grand Marnier “Irresistible”

The iconic French Orange Liqueur Grand Marnier is celebrating this holiday season in style by introducing a limited edition version of its classic Cordon Rouge, playfully named “Irresistible”. The delightful and delicious liqueur is packaged in vivid red-hot lacquer, making it even more appealing to spirits collectors. Irresistible is the 7th in a series released annually by Grand Marnier® since 2003. Read the rest of the story, after the jump.

The liqueur has been revered by sophisticated epicureans for its incomparable smoothness since being invented in 1880 by Louis-Alexandre Marnier Lapostolle. Continuing the tradition of excellence, this year’s theme celebrates a “playfully indulgent” holiday season with elegance and a slightly unorthodox yet refined adventure for the taste buds.

The 2009 Irresistible collector’s item will be limited to 300 bottles in Hong Kong and available at exclusive high-end bars and specialty locations such as Watson’s Wine Cellar and Oliver.

Fashion Challenge: Turbans

turban photos Photo Credits: 1 – Krystal via This Time Tomorrow, 2 – Ashley Olsen, 3 – Charlotte Ronson fall 2010 RTWA turban might not be the first hair accessory you think of when your outfit is in need of something extra, but why not? I’ve spotted turbans on street style blogs galore lately, and several designers sent turbans down their runways for spring and fall. Need another reason to try a turban? How about the fact that you can make one out of a scarf that you already own? A turban is versatile, fun, and bold: The perfect item for this week’s Fashion Challenge.

Tips and Tricks for Rocking a Turban

    Tie it right. Learning to tie the turban correctly may take some time, but it’s worth the effort to look finished and pulled together. Check out one of the links in the Extra Credit Reading section to try it yourself.Try a hybrid. If you don’t like the look of a full turban (like Sarah Jessica Parker’s, below) try a headband/turban mix, often referred to as a turband. Ashley Olsen sports a faux leather one above. Pictured below (right), from The Sartorialist: a turband with a bow.

    Let it pop. Allow your turban to steal the show. Choose one in a bold print, or pair it with a neutral outfit. This is a great opportunity to showcase your favorite scarf in a unique way.Make it last. This isn’t just a summer look. Several designers (including Charlotte Ronson, above) featured turbans in their fall collections. Don’t be afraid to splurge on a great scarf, because besides being extremely versatile, it will last more than one season.

How to Create a Fashion Vision Board

vision board Photo CreditThis time of year is when I do my annual style revamp – it’s where I ask myself if my current style is working, and think about what I can do to improve it. This year, however, I’ve decided to try something new to aid in my revamp – creating a fashion vision board. In case you don’t know what a vision board is, it’s basically a cute collage of pictures and text, like the one shown above, that illustrates a certain idea, mood, or theme. I was inspired by one of my friends, who made a vision board of her academic goals and posted a picture of it on Facebook. It was a creative collage of quotes, photos, and artwork, all of which demonstrated her goals for that semester. I decided to translate this from academics to fashion, and am here to show you how I’ve done it!

Step 1: Reflect on your current style.

I’ve noticed this past year I have been super trendy and have purchased everything from houndstooth pieces to rompers to clunky statement rings. While this has been fun and all, unfortunately, keeping up with the trends on my budget usually means sacrificing quality. I’ve been buying tons of trinkets and things at cheap stores like Forever 21. This isn’t necessary a terrible thing, but I’ve realized (for me) it’s much better to spend my money on classic, high-quality pieces.

Step 2: Find an affirmation which summarizes your goal.

Okay, so now that you have the basic idea of what direction you want your style to go in, you next want to find a simple statement or affirmation to include as the central idea for your vision board. I like to do this because I can’t exactly lug my vision board around with me when I’m out shopping, but having a quote to remember will remind you of your vision board and whatever style goals you’ve made! My statement this year is a quote by French writer Stendhal who said:“Only great minds can afford a simple style.”This statement reminds me I am on the hunt for classic, well-made pieces that will last me a long time and are considered investment garments. It’s not always easy to stay away from flashy, trendy pieces, but it’s worth the extra effort.

Step 3: Expand your ideas and find catch words.

You need to have some specifics in mind when creating your vision board, so you have a clear idea of what to look for when you’re out shopping or purging your closet. For me, following Stendhal’s quote means keeping things simple with smart, practical clothes. (It does NOT mean I have to go boring and drab, though!) I also want to buy items that are figure-flattering and structured. Catch words like these should definitely be a part of your vision board!

Step 4: Find pictures and put together your vision board!

The friend I mentioned earlier did her collage on a poster board, but I decided to make it on the computer. (You can do this with Photoshop or Gimp, or you could also use Polyvore!) I found a bunch of pictures that adhered to my goal, put it all together and have posted the result below! I had a great time making it, and I’m sure you’ll have fun making yours, too.It might be fun to get a few friends together and actually make fashion vision boards together on poster board. You could also make your vision board on corkboard in your room and constantly change out pictures and quotes as your style evolves – the more personalized, the better!my fashion vision board My vision board – click to enlarge.

Your thoughts?

What do you think? Do you use vision boards or other visual motivation tools to reach your goals? Let me know with a comment! Also, if you make a fashion vision board of your own, make sure to post a link to the photo in the comments so we can all check it out! I can’t wait to see what you guys come up with!
