Le Beret

Jessica Wagner

Mon Chérie 

Let’s be French! My favorite accessory for when I want to feel a bit of an escape is a classic wool beret. (As seen here.) Tipped to one side, with a slight bit of jaunty attitude. 

These cold days have me longing for adventure, and right now the closest thing to that is dressing a bit overconfidently for a foggy morning trip to the donut shop. 

Thinking about trying a beret this winter? There are so many color options out there to choose from, and at a variety of price points. This one I’ve had for so long it’s practically vintage. I found this pale pink one on Amazon here. It was inexpensive, so a perfect option if you want to experiment with this femme look. (As seen here.)

While it might seem an intimidating accessory, the easiest way to style this classic is with confidence. Try not to puff it up too much on top, or it will look a bit like a muffin. On the other end, you also don’t want it too flat, like a pancake. Style some hair around your face, to keep it soft.

While this look is trending, I’ve always loved the playful anything-but-under-the-radar feel of it. While dressing for the weekend sometimes makes for lazy tees and joggers - leopard spots, a big red bow, high-rise jeans (last seen here) and mega babe boots make for a perfect combo when trying to break free from the heaviness of winter and have a little fun, even if you have to create it yourself. 

If you can’t have a weekend adventure, accept the grand adventure of being you {with a French hat or maybe just some french fries.}

2018: Hair & Beauty Trends With Rêvé

It's that time of year! Looking ahead to 2018 what are the hottest trends we are going to be seeing in hair and beauty?

The Fashion Of Life stopped by Rêvé Salon and Spa in downtown Sylvania to talk with Carmen Wigmans, {owner} and Sharon Smith {makeup artist} to count down a few of their favorite things as we head into the New Year! 

Watch the full segment (here) or tune in to Buckeye Cable Arts Network (BCAN) channel 109/609HD on Buckeye Broadband tonight at 7:30pm.

***Rêvé is currently running a special, buy any 3 products, get 20% off now through Christmas Eve.***


AMIKA: "Perk Up" DRY SHAMPOO

Reve Product_-10.jpg

Dry shampoo is all the rage, and why not?! This one by AMIKA is amazing! It smells fabulous and is SO easy to use, just shake, hold a few inches from the desired area of the scalp, and spray!

The full AMIKA line is available for purchase at Rêvé, (I also love the AMIKA Nourishing Hair Mask!) I left with a travel size (only $10) to try for myself, and after a few uses I'm already in love! I know I will be heading back to Rêvé to purchase a full size bottle.   

This little can is such a huge time saver and will give your tresses that instant "second day hair"  look, which I find so much easier to style! Plus the added texture and body is the tops!


EMINENCE: HIBISCUS ULTRA LIFT EYE CREAM 

This award winning eye cream is a must-have for fighting off early morning puffiness and minimizing those fine lines and wrinkles.

Anything that de-puffs tired eyes, smoothes skin and fights off dark under-eye circles is a win in my book!  The round applicator is a cooling, stainless steel rollerball that massages hibiscus and ice wine actives into the areas around the eye, instantly tightening and lifting the skin.

The full Eminence line is all available at Rêvé.


HALOCOUTURE: HAIR EXTENSIONS

Thicker, longer hair without hassle? That's the secret behind HALOCOUTURE. These natural extensions are unlike any other hair extensions I have ever seen before. Simply place the invisible fine-line hair band around the top of your head (like a halo!) and watch your main transform into gorgeous fullness without clips, glue, beads or time spent in the mirror getting the placement just right. Watch Sharon demonstrate how easy they are to apply here!

Stop by Rêvé to place your custom order and their team will assist you in choosing a natural length and color - a guaranteed perfect match! 


CAILYN: STAR WAVE MATTALIC LIP TINT

This one might be my new absolute favorite! I love a bright bold lip but have never found one that is so gorgeously metallic! It's like applying a layer of shimmery liquid stars on your lips. This lipstick is perfect for adding a bit of classic edge to your look.

I had to buy this color, "06 Belletrix," once Sharon had me try it on. At $22 each these high impact, long lasting metallic glosses will make you shine glamorously without smudging, feathering or fading. I am notorious for getting lipstick on my teeth, and it's so nice to know this color won't end up all over my coffee cups or kiddos cheeks! 

Let Rêvé help you achieve luscious, sparkling lips, available in 12 stunning shades. 


INGLOT GLITTER SHADOW

Sparkle and shine are always so much fun to experiment with! I love adding a little shimmer around the brow bone or upper eyelid. Shannon showed me how you can even dap some of this sparkle to the bow of the lips! This jar by INGLOT is sure to last, as all you need is a dab on the tip of the finger and a swipe across the lid. Perfect for a glitzy NYE look or when you want to create a statement eye.  


CAILYN O! CIRCLE BRUSH
{As seen on Oprah's Favorite Things!}

Reve Product_-4.jpg
Reve Product_-5.jpg

I am not one to argue with Oprah, and I am told this is the only brush you will ever need for blending in flawless foundation for an air-brushed look! Use with Apply any liquid, cream or powder foundation on skin. This brush is amazingly silky smooth, and sure to be a daily staple on your vanity. Totally adding this to my wish list! 


HALOCOUTURE: AUTO-ROTATING CERAMIC CURLING IRON

Guys, this groundbreaking little tool does the hard work for you! If you love loose beachy waves (I know I do!) this is the curling iron for you. Auto-rotating to create those effortless, run-way waves with the touch of a button (one to go right and one to go left.) Easy and user friendly, this wand allows you to create touchable, "Victoria Secret" curls. Styling waves has never been easier!

Rêvé has these in stock now, check out their video here! (Plus our own demonstration video to come!) This is the perfect gift for your long-haired friends and family (hint hint!)


KERSTASE HAIR PRODUCTS 

Last but not least, remember to protect your strands! The dry winter air, and heat tools, like blow dryers and irons, can do so much damage, especially this time of year. Save your hair from breakage with the best in the business -Kérastase Paris- professional hair care and styling products.

The ladies at Rêvé recommend, Sérum Thérapiste for repairing dual-serum for weak, over-processed and damaged hair, and Fibre Architecte for reconstructing serum for weak hair and damaged hair with split ends. A little goes a long way and is worth the luxury of having healthy enviable hair!

5 Summer Trends You Should Know & Try

Jessica Wagner

Wearing TKB  Floral Tank & Blush Open Toe Heel Booties


Top Knot Boutique: Your Best Friend For Summer

Summer trends go way beyond floral, although I must admit I love blending in with a wildflower garden.  

Allow me to introduce you to Top Knot Boutique, an affordable online boutique, currated by my friends and fellow busy mamas who are on a mission to help women balance life’s many roles with fashionable ease.

I’m so smitten!

Top Knot Boutique or TKB is all about the reinvention of good ol’ classics with effortless on-trend aesthetics. Each piece featured is hand-picked by Hannah and Anita. (Read more about theses two lovelies and the "behind the scenes" on their blog here!)

Top Knot hits that sweet spot when it comes to comfort and clothing for morning, noon, and night. Laid-back, cute and easy. They carry the softest everyday pieces that brilliantly transition from work to weekend. What I love about boutique style clothing is the attention to detail. They make it easy for you to find an item that has my three musts: affordable, exclusive, and compliment worthy.

Top Knot has a great selection of slouchy tops with artful touches, timeless dresses that are so very much of the times, and that unexpected tomboy-sexy that will elevate your outfit top-knot ballerina bun and all!

Scroll on to see my selection of the ones that I’m keeping on my list of “must buys” for summer/vacation holiday 2017 and let me know which trend is your favorite! 


Stripes


What is a summer trend forecast without beloved stripes?! This season the print comes in all forms, but my favorites are in contrasting blue and white hues!

This open-shoulder top with little bell sleeves is sure to make you belle of the BBQ! I’m already planning a vineyard picnic with this sweet fitting cutie in mind. So easy. I paired mine with cream and lace shorts, but any type of denim would work just as seamlessly.

Wearing TKB first look exclusive! (Keep an eye out for this is a soon-to-be new arrival!)


Ruffles

Shoulder baring tops have taken to the next-level with a few ultra femme and frilly touches.

The color of clementines, peaches, and tangerines, this darling top will make a summer glow sing. Doll it up with a skirt, or pair it down with dark-wash high waisted denim, this look is grown up and girlie.


Blush Pink

The new neutral.

These knotted mule sneaks are the ultimate summer companion. Way to combine super comfy, supportive and adorable, TKB!  All in a shade that leans towards the earthier end of the pink pallet - that hint of warmth makes them subtle enough to wear with all! (Only $25!)


Distressed

I’ve been seeing this trend everywhere and am so drawn to the disregarded edginess of it. I do find it a little tricky – the distressing has to be done just right  – or this look can come across disheveled. This one has a high-low vented hem with a tattered design. The soft pink color and oversize comfy distressing hit all the right places!

Look 1:

Look 2:

I had to style this distressed top two ways (I just like it so much) – above, with heels to show you guys how easy it can be to style something like this up, and one with my sneaks and the dreamiest TKB kimono. This kimono might be one of my favorite pieces in the shop. It can be worn as a swim cover up, or to add a light layer of interest. The sheer shades of pink, tassels and the teal accent trim are on point!

Graphic Statements/Slogans

Unless you’ve living under a rock, you should know by now that wordy tees  are absolutely everywhere. From subtle word stitching to instagram friendly “hashtags” this trend is hard not to mention.

I am in love with this tank. It has ALL the good vibes! The fit is so cool – it’s cut to flatter. Just right for that “little to no effort look.” I know that’s how I like to get dressed!

(TKB also carries cute slogan baseball caps and hats. They have some new arrivals I can’t wait to get my hands on!)
