Best Accessories for Spring Summer The Goddess Headbands

I have started a collection of goddess headbands, thanks to the Dolce and Gabbana and Valentino fashion show of the past seasons.  There is something so fun, flirty and ultra feminine about these headbands; they make me feel like I should be in a Midsummer Night’s Dream when I wear my headbands.

As you know it’s Earth Day and Southern California is in a major drought, so here at Casa W we've cut back on the shower time.  This left me with less hair washing time (which is fine, because I would rather have water to drink). These headbands detract from the dirty hair because they are so beautiful. I bet that’s why Roman women used to wear head ornaments; dirty hair made beautiful in one easy step.

 I have the gold-leafed headband (pictured) from and a coin headband as well, but the ultimate lust is the Oscar de la Renta at Net a Porter. I went weak in the knees when I spied that little gem. If you have a favorite headband link, let me know in the comments... you know me, always on the hunt.

Let’s Have Fun with NYFW 2015 Backstage Sneak Peeks

Let’s fun this week, I will be posting my behind the scenes look at not just Spring Summer 2015 Fashion Week, but I will have sneaky peeks at a few A/W 2015 NYFW collections.
With NYFW starting today why not step- up the fashion game a bit and bust out a fashion trend you might not normally wear? Then blame New York Fashion Week Fever for your choice if your friends don’t understand.
 On a side note most of you who have been reading my post this month have been experiencing my #StyleMeFeb challenges daily here and on my InstaBeauty feed and get to see my work and play #OOTD choices, however some of my friends only get to see me in my morning, just rolled on to the Running Club Track Outfits, sans maquillage and don’t normally see the Beauty by SW effect. So I've been getting a lot of questions about what do I wear, how I put outfits together, and various other beauty questions, so here’s the OOTD question answered.

 My Pinstriped skirt is a Robert Rodriguez pencil skirt from my boutique (10 years ago) and the black and white striped blouse is around 3years old from Forever21, I think? My shoes are a suede black heel with a sleek ankle strap and bow; I adore them, so Paris Chic. I'll be trying these out with jeans soon.

 The looped gunmetal, bomber jacket is not for everyone, but this is a personal choice for my twist of fun fashion. An outfit like this could easily be paired with a nice camel or pop color trench coat for a more classic fashion choice.

Be sure to check in for NYFW fun and I will see you soon

In San Diego we are not just a resort city, we are a hub for military families and this Valentine’s Day a lot of Little W’s school mates have parents that are on deployment.
 We are fortunate to have Mr.W at home for events like V-Day, which got me thinking about our friends that don’t have their other half here “what could be fun for the person left at home and be exciting for the person who’s away?” It has to include a few key ingredients:

Got it! A Kiss a Gram Party.

 All this adds up to a Kiss a Gram short Video for your Sweetie or a photo to send with a message just for them and an afternoon of giggles and trash talk for you. I clearly was on a cinnamon gel heart high when I wrote this!
quote John Green 

 Have fun, and share with your friend the love in your heart
