Style Crush: Kahlana Barfield Brown

I'm a total fan-girl for Kahlana Barfield Brown!!! But honestly who isn't? She's one of my biggest inspirations, mommy inspo, career goals, and lowkey bestie in my head. Well actually, our friendship was confirmed via twitter not long ago. Don't question me, I have receipts! Definitely someone you want to know, Barfield Brown is the super stylish fashion and beauty editor at InStyle. You see why she's my career goals? In addition to her fabulous role at one of the most fashionable publications, her personal style is to die for! It's chic, edgy and effortless. Kahlana SLAYS! I've dubbed her the "Queen of Jeans," because I don't think I've ever seen anyone rock a pair of denim as flawless as she does. I mean seriously! Below I've highlighted some of my favorite looks from this style star featuring fierce tops, eclectic heels, and jeans. Check 'em out!

Gimme Gucci: 10 Things I Need From Gucci Right Now

A classic black Chanel bag and a pair of nude "So Kate's" have been on my wishlist for as long as I can remember, but I've never been much of a label whore. I can probably attribute that to my simplistic lifestyle and "chic-on-a-budget" sense of style. You guys know I'm totally satisfied with the latest and greatest from Zara and H & M, but the older I get, the more my heart desires. I almost don't know who I am anymore! I'm starting to consider $900 blouses and $350 socks for crying out loud! The one brand that's totally captured my attention and has me wanting to break my entire bank account, is Gucci. From its super fashionable products to the brand's perfect advertising, I almost want to be an employee! I mean seriously... Gucci, are y'all hiring? I'm more than ready to clock-in for one of the most glamorous companies ever. *seeks application*

I browse the website weekly, drooling over everything and creating carts that I won't be checking out of anytime soon. I haven't exactly secured the bag the way I need to in order to purchase all the items I "need." But for now, let's window shop together and explore the desires of a broke college girl. Check out my Gimme Gucci Wish List below!

Recently I purchased three more products by the brand: a highlighter, blush and nude lipstick. Keep on reading to get the deets!

Angles. Lighting. Filters. Each of these elements are what make the perfect selfie. I have struggled with taking selfies for way too long.

Pictured above is pro MUA of MUSE Beauty Agency Tallia Lee, serving FACE in one of the prettiest selfies I have ever seen. In addition to gracing us with her beauty, she composed a 3-tip list on selfie slayin'!
