Tween Makeover At The Good Life 2013 Fashion Event
We enjoyed The Good Life at Westfield Topanga Mall this past weekend, with complimentary beverages and mini cupcakes served while the latest looks for Spring and Summer hit the runway! Watch the video to see highlights, plus we had our own Lizzy K there for a tween makeover with dry styling from Carlton Hair and fresh makeup for everyday from Make Up For Ever. There were massages and photo ops, too! It was a great treat for spending some Mommy Daughter time and the whole event was completely free.
Participating retailers offered special discounts during the event, too. And just in case you think you missed it – you can check out The Good Life at Westfield Fashion Square in Sherman Oaks this weekend (see schedule below). I thought it was a great opportunity to provide a little professional guidance for tween make up. It can be such a loaded issue. Personally, I don’t advocate wearing much make up for every day (until your so old that you’re actually performing a public service when you get made up). I do recognize how exciting entering the world of cosmetics can be for young girls. With a little direction and encouragement, tweens can avoid the green shadow and black liquid eye liner, applied with little skill, that still mocks me from my 7th grade school picture.
I loved all the fabulous shoes from JChinese Laundry and Michael Kors. Great white linen dresses with lots of bright colored accessories were prominently featured. You can catch a glimpse of a couple of my favorites from Caché in the beginning of the video. Lots of great looks from White House Black Market and plenty of island style from Tommy Bahama. Of course, the tweens loved the looks from True Religion. If you make it out to the event in Sherman Oaks, let us know which looks you’ll choose to carry you through the summer!
