Belle’s Weekly Roundup: April 19, 2013

Monday’s bombing at the Boston Marathon affected everyone in different ways.  If you’d like to show your support for the victims of this tragedy and your solidarity with the people of Boston, you can purchase a Stay Strong t-shirt.  100-percent of the proceeds go to The One Fund Boston.

Politicos: Looking for a piece of art for your office?  I love this modern, patriotic print from Gilt.

The latest video from Dove’s real beauty campaign asked women to describe what they see when they look in the mirror, and then asked total strangers to describe how they saw the women.  The results are mind-blowing.

Speaking of body types and acceptance, UK-fashion brand Debenham’s just released their summer lookbook, and the women in the photos don’t fit into the typical model stereotype.  This is a good thing.

I wanted a white dress to wear to a friend’s birthday bash, so when I spotted this white shift dress at The Outnet, I had to have it.  It’s certainly much cheaper than the to.die.for Broderie Burberry frock I had my eye on.

Who What Wear challenged a celebrity makeup artist to leave her designer beauty products behind and identify the best lipsticks available at the drugstore.  My favorites from her list of 12?  CoverGirl Lip Perfection Lip Color in Flame and Darling, Maybelline SuperStay in Wine and Forever and Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Moss in 101 and 104.

We all know how I feel about Uggs, so it’s no wonder that so many of you e-mailed me a copy of BuzzFeed’s “20 Pairs of Uggs That Will Destroy Your Faith in Humanity.”

I love the lace embroidery on the neck of this silk tank.  It would look so great under a jacket or cardigan.

Not sure what the fashion-forward trends for spring/summer are?  Wendy from Wendy’s Lookbook put together a graphic novel-inspired video that runs down the 20 trends you need to be on the lookout for this season.

Lastly, I’ve said before how much I love NARS nail polish, especially Purple Rain, so I was so excited when they came out with their Limited Edition Pierre Hardy sets were released.  Now, if only I could decide which one to buy.  I’m torn between Ethno Run (Denver Broncos colors), Vertebra (mauve and deep pink) or Easy Walking (gold and camel).  So many choices…

The Five Best Things I Bought This Summer

This summer, I’m shopping significantly less than in past seasons. I add things to my cart, walk away, and if I forget about them, (clearly) I didn’t need them. But the flip side of the coin is that the pieces I have purchased are thoughtfully chosen, worn more consistently, and just better.
