I Dream Of Jeanie

Keeping with the trend of people who’s style I lust over, let’s talk about Ms. Jeanie Mai.

Jeanie Mai

For those of you not familiar with her, she hosts a makeover/lifestyle show on the Style Network called How Do I Look, which takes women who’s styles & lives need an overhaul and help them find outfits that fit their bodies as well as who they really are inside. Jeanie always has a very sophisticated, classy look, but always manages to find a way to add an edge to it, whether it be blue streaks in her hair to spikes on her wrists.

I was interested to find that Jeanie has a slew of other jobs added to her resume’. She started out as a makeup artist for MAC and worked her way up to painting the faces of celebs like Alicia Keys and Christina Aguilara (to name a few).

A communications major in college, she soon began auditioning for local television stations, and landed a job hosting her own music countdown. She gained attention with her style and kooky personality, and soon landed a job as an entertainment reporter and producer of a show on the WB. These jobs snowballed into the career she has today, and the “Fashion Wearapist” has built quite the book of credentials.

 

Jeanie also dabbles in philanthropy, making missions trips to Africa, Thailand and Vietnam. Heartbeat Vietnam, a nonprofit organization, helps improve health care for poverty-stricken children. She also works with Dress For Success, Sister To Sister and Seven Bar just to name a few. She also uses her red carpet appearences to support up and coming designers by wearing their looks.

 

Jeanie can do no wrong in my eyes when it comes to her style, and she is a good example that dressing with class does not translate to stiff and boring. Her style has inspired many of my looks, I hope you find inspiration in Jeanie too!!!

Blogs I Love: Fashion Bomb Daily

My favorite urban style blog hands down is Fashion Bomb Daily. Since discovering it, I’ve visited daily (no pun intended 😉 ) and can always count on them to keep me up-to-date on who’s who & what’s what in the world of fashion and celebrity style. My favorite feature is Fashion Bombshell/Bomber of the Day, where people are allowed to submit pictures of themselves, describe their styles and open themselves up to the opinions of the blog’s readers. One day I’ll be brave enough to submit some pics 😉 If you haven’t already, go check it out!!

Nail Ideas

Here are some cute nail designs & colors I’m thinking about trying soon…

 

I’m really into neon right now (everything from nails to shoes) & also in love with stiletto nails, so I think I may mix those two up & see what design I can come up with. I also like the matte black too tho, so I’ll make up my mind & be sure to post the pics!!! 🙂
