Belle's Weekly Reading: Raise the Roof Edition

Aug 1, 2011

 

I don’t know about you, but if I hear the words debt ceiling one more time, my head might explode.  This is even more annoying than the government shutdown that wasn’t.  Hopefully, it will all be over soon.  Hopefully.

For those of you who don’t know what different makeup brushes are for or what they are called, speed on over to The Beauty Department.  They have a great post on how to use them and how to buy the right brush for you.

The Fall lookbook from J.Crew is everywhere.  Mizhattan has a lovely post about the different color palettes and Elements of Style has a post with tons of photos and her thoughts on the retailer’s leopard print obsession.

If you’re skin has been giving you fits this Summer, The Daily Obsession has a review of Kiehl’s Ultra-Facial Oil-Free line that might be what the doctor ordered.

Everyone’s new blog obsession, The Glitter Guide, has a post entitled 10 Ways to Dress Like a Glitter Girl that you don’t want to miss.

Like your fashion with a bit of snark?  Looks Good from the Back has a punchy critique of one of The Sartorialist’s street syle subjects that will sure to make you laugh.

Some of you have been asking for tutorials on how to wear belts.  Maybe it’s better that I show rather than tell.  This post from Kendi Everyday is the perfect illustration for how to wear wide belt with a full-skirted dress
