OOTW & Mulholland Drive!

Coffee black & egg white stripes sounded minimal and comfy for this outfit of the week look.  And let’s mix in some sultry grey skies & some trail trekking.  The skies were gorgeous-ly grey that day for this OOTW fashion video shoot upon the scenic hillside of Mulholland Drive!  Comfort was on my mind for this daytime ensemble.  So I went with a textured & striped top from Zara that I love to swim in (not literally ;),IMG_0432.jpg

& grey suede “Manon” riding boots by Rosegold, to match the weather 🙂IMG_0436.jpgThis look would not have been complete without my Muskoka Nord orange agate fish necklace & Muskoka Nord Teepee choker!  I absolutely love the Native American vibes of these pieces.

Totally off topic, but I also have a thing for Swedish fish.  They are my favorite candy…like…ever!  Maybe someday they will also come out with Irish fish too? :)))))) #anIrishgirlcandreamIMG_0439.jpg

I love the big & chunky pockets on this Zara shirt.  Makes it awesome for holding things like a cell, lip balm, or….swedish fish. heheheeeIMG_0442.jpg

This look can easily be recreated to make it your own with any funk top, blue jeans, black jacket, tall boots & layering jewelry.  The beauty of fashion is that the possibilities are endless!   I hope you guys enjoyed this look and video.  Much love!! xoxo ~KelleIMG_0448.jpg

Alice In Wonderland Party Makeup Look GRWM & Vlog!

Hi loves!! This is the makeup look that I wore to my friend’s Alice In Wonderland birthday party this week!  In my latest video I give you the deets on how to achieve this retro inspired editorial “Alice” look.  IMG_1826 2The outfit ensemble included a black/white striped dress from 599Fashion, a diamond-shaped necklace I made with some bits and bobs I had lying around, and a pair of funky patent leather red/gold striped platform heels by Paloma Barceló.

In the video, I also take you with me to the party!  Was such a fun party with some rockin LA artists!! Enjoy! xoxo ~Kelle

This “Alice” look was created by using a metallic turquoise shadow by Profusion to create a kitten flick.  The lip shade was an alchemy of two Wet N Wild red & pink matte lip shades.

The cheek highlight was created with Physician’s Formula “Nude” eyeshadow strip palette!  I’ve been using it as a highlighter a lot lately!

Perfection is Boring! | OOTW | Fashion Film

TGIF, my lovelies!! I am so excited about sharing this video with you! You know you must enjoy what you do, when you spend 15 hours editing a 6 minute fashion film! LOL.  Spring is just about here and Los Angeles is preparing for the biggest storm it has seen in 6 or so years.  That said, sweater weather it is!  The sweater in this video is a vintage zip up sweater.  I found it at a thrift store here in LA,

and fell hard for it.  So cozy for rainy days, lyric writing, and hot cocoa.  The lace floral top is by Millau and the cutoff jean shorts are by Joe’s jeans.  The leather gladiators are by Bamboo and go great with shorts and boho dresses.  Love that they are nude in color too because they make your legs look sooooo long.  Illusions, baby, illusions!  Who else is a sucker for rose gold?!  The rose gold/gold two-tone belt by Marciano gets a lot of love for sure.  Love wearing it with jeans and tees.  The buddha necklace was a spiritual find on my last modeling trip.  It can be doubled up or worn as a really long necklace.  Love the sunshine color of its beads.  Hope you guys enjoy this look.  I had so much fun putting this film together for you, darlings!!!  Enjoy & have a rockin weekend!! ❤ ❤ ~Kelle

Kelley Nicole Collection Design Mode: Sea, Sun, Spring Bohemian

Nothing beats the winter blues than a dose of color.  Anyone else eager for Spring?  Just two more months until then, so I thought I would get a start on some Spring designing.  Last weekend I made another jewelry organizer, this time with some bright color, sequins, & print. That silk dress I recycled to make this organizer won’t be seeing the light of day ever again lol.  Thus far I have made three jewelry storage houses with recycled materials.  Of the three, the Moroccan one is my favorite.  To see more about them, be sure to check out this week’s video.

I also made some new semi-precious stone stackable rings.  These are just a few from this weekends two-day designing bender.  IMG_4636.jpg

This jade piece looks great alone or paired with stackables.  The jade stone tells a story from a trip I took out of the country last year.  Reminds me of the sea.

Too Faced Peanut Butter & Jelly Palette First Impressions!

I’ll start by saying that I have a strong adoration for Too Faced eyeshadows.  The Chocolate Bar palettes are definitely worth the cult following & have been in my makeup arsenal for yearsssss.  One of the best makeup lines eva!!  So I went into this review with high hopes, and the delectable PB & J palette certainly did not disappoint!!  The colors are perfect for any season!  When swatched, the creamy shades blended impressively.  Buttery beauties fo sho!!

Ummmm the packaging, can we eat it, too?  I did end up giving the shadows a taste in my review video.  Not only could I not help myself, but I was also too lazy to get up and go wash off the swatches during filming. That said, they pack a light, candy sweet taste. lol

The versatility you get with this palette is amaze.  It comes with matte and satin shades, and perfect transition shades.  The array of colors are suitable for both natural day looks & smokey night looks.  If you really feel like living a little, the “Jelly” shade is gorgeous for some inner eye pop.  However, Jelly was the only one I had trouble with because of the overspray in my initial swatch.  But after working the overspray off, it swatches & builds beautifully into bright, gorgeous color.

Too Faced’s PB & J palette comes with flattering matte & satin shades for both natural day & smokey night looks. ❤

I can’t wait to wear Jammin’ for a smokey eye.  It is an interesting purple-dark brown-taupe shade. “Peanut Brittle” is a gorgeous bronze satin sure to bring out your inner goddess.  “Nuts About U” & “Peanut Butter” are rich, pigmented mattes.  When worn in the crease, terra-cotta shades like these always help to bring out the color in my eyes, so they will be getting lots of love.  I give this palette two big thumbs up!!!  How awesome would it be if Too Faced came out with an Almond Butter palette?!!! I die just dreaming of it!  Also in my review video I mentioned being in designing mode a lot lately, & included some of my latest jewelry, jewelry organization, & fashion designs.  Hope you enjoy! ❤ ❤ ~Kelle
