As you might have noticed, I am stripe obsessed. I love these looks by Alexa Chung (from her Tumblr). She always gets it right. I don’t think anyone wears stripes better than she does.

My Personal Beauty Favorites | obsessionsJun 04, 2014

I am not really a makeup or a scent person. To be honest, I usually just to stick to a colored lip and I rotate three different perfumes. I’ve tried many products over the years and probably will keep trying others. But I would love to share a few of my favorites with you.

Cleu De Peau Lipsticks available at Neiman Marcus

I am totally obsessed and can’t live without Cleu de Peu lipsticks. I need to explain myself here because they are pricey. But what you get is totally worth it. They are a cross between a lipstick and a lipgloss, and they are odorless and not at all sticky. This matters a lot to me because I can’t stand when my hair gets caught on my lips! Also, they last a very long time.

Aerin lipsticks available at aerin.com

Second, for a deeper, true dramatic lipstick look, the new lipstick line from Aerin is amazing. She totally nailed the colors. They are the best I have ever seen – beautiful, fresh and modern. I want them all but I wear Perfect Nude for day and Poppy for night.

I am sort of a sucker for any Tuberose scent.  I also love anything by Frederic Malle, especially the Dominique Ropion collection. The perfumes are all so good and easy to wear.  They aren’t strong and they have a soft, subtle scent.

Carriere Freres available at Bergdorf Goodman

I must also confess that I am not a candle person, but this candle by Carrier Freres in Clementine scent is quite probably the best thing I have ever smelled in my life. I literally just smell the box and leave it unlit at my desk. The packaging is awesome too.  Love the stripes!

Jo Malone favorite scent Fleurs De La Foret

Jo Malone favorite scent Fleurs De La Foret

My all time favorite perfume is Jo Malone in Fleurs De La Foret Cologne. It’s very hard to find and not sure if they make it anymore. I use it sparingly and I am saving every last drop just in case.  I think I am going to have to buy my next bottle on Ebay.

“Ginny in Striped Shirt” by Alice Neel


I love portrait paintings and some of my very favorite artists are Alex Katz,  Lucian Freud, Ahn Duong, David Hockney, and Alice Neel. But nothing gets me more excited than when they paint my favorite iconic striped tee.
