I am thrilled to announce that the flagship VIOLET GREY store is opening to the public today at 8452 Melrose Place in Los Angeles, CA.

What began as an inspirational styling studio for celebrities, stylists and artists is now the ultimate beauty destination. A world drenched in luxury, VIOLET GREY celebrates Hollywood beauty culture by curating the best in beauty, culled from the kits of Hollywood’s top artists. One of the most stunning beauty stores in the world, VIOLET GREY is bringing back old Hollywood glamour through its tightly curated product offering on The Shelves (both in-store and online) and editorially rich digital magazine, The Violet Files.

Nestled between designer boutiques like Chloé, Oscar de la Renta, Marni and Isabel Marant, VIOLET GREY’s lush in-store experience features interiors by renowned designer, Bill Sofield. Sofield is known for his work on boutiques including Tom Ford, Gucci, Giorgio Armani, Yves Saint Laurent and Bottega Veneta. Design elements include Dean Martin’s makeup chair in the by-appointment application studio, and framed Edith Head sketches. VIOLET GREY has transformed the way consumers shop for beauty by making the experience lavish and inspirational, defined by necessary products seasonally curated by the top Hollywood artists and experts. These experts have lined The Shelves with coveted brands like Serge Lutens, Dior, and Tom Ford.

VIOLET GREY’s founder, Cassandra Huysentruyt Grey, envisions her consumer as “discerning and ambitious. She is busy and her time is valuable. She is looking for a trusted source to build and maintain her cosmetic wardrobe.”

Bank Fashion Review

Hey Beauties,
 I know its been a while I'll explain in a different post. Any ways here is a new company from the UK that I thought was pretty cool! They have a great website called bank fashion. You can get all kinds of clothes,shoes,purses and accessories. Today I will have three items up for review!

The first one is the DKNY messenger bag.

I thought this was very well made. It is a purse so there isn't alot I can say that is bad my only complaint is that its a bit stiff AND only one small inside pocket. When it comes to pockets and I am one of those people who like them because I am a mom of four and need all kinds of space! That is it other then that I really like this purse! They have many other purses to choose from that might fit your style and life better :D

Here is the second purse I received.


This is a great little purse if you are just going for a night on the time with your girlfriends. I was disappointed that you can't have a lot in there. You can fit your cell phone, some cash and cards, and a few make up items but that is about it. It came in handy for me when I would go out and not one some big to pack around. I was disappointed that I can't fit my wallet in it. Maybe your not suppose too?  Any ways long story short, I really liked this purse. I love the color and how it is simple and not over done.

Items were provided a pr company.
