Our Day at Barney’s in Chelsea

Barneys, what fashion dreams are made of… I think, actually I know, that all fashion people remember their first Barneys purchase. As well as their second, and maybe even their third. My first purchase was a magenta, mohair skirt from Mark Eisen. It was 1995 so give me a break, ok?

You know how I promote trends in fashion because they are a great tool to get one excited to get dressed every day? Well, an eyeshadow palette is what is getting me excited to put on makeup these days! Beauty is literally art with the Andy Warhol-inspired collection from NARS Cosmetics. This collaboration was a natural match for Francois Nars, who said that he has been very influenced by Warhol’s sense of rebellion and playfulness with color even before this collaboration. The collection includes eye shadow palettes, lip gloss, nail polish, and beauty sets–and they sell for no more than regular NARS …
