Ask Jules: Dorm Room Redo

I haven’t lived in a dorm room, but I have lived on location while filming a movie and on a tour bus while on the road, so I know the importance of making the place you spend time in feel warm and personal.

Hals’ email hit a chord with me — plus it was so funny it made me LOL. I especially loved that she included lots of pictures. I gave her my best advice, but I think it would be awesome if you would jump in and add your own thoughts in the comments!

Hi Jules,

I NEED YOUR HELP!! I attend Nipissing University in North Bay, Canada. I love the school because it’s small and has amazing trails around campus. We even have our own waterfall!

But I have to admit, I sometimes feel like Bella Swan living in Forks. It’s grey, cold and damp. (Still waiting for a cute vampire to show up!) I have attached pictures of my dorm room and I just want some tips on how to make it feel warmer and more like home.

I love boho, plants, fluffy blankets, etc. Your collaboration with Joss and Main was my favourite! I love those kinds of looks but never know how to achieve it. I am super passionate about art; I’ve started to collect one piece every time I travel somewhere new.

Obviously being a student I’m on a tight budget, but I’m in this room constantly studying and reading, and I’m so tired of feeling like I live in a prison cell. Personally, I think the white brick gives off the perfect jail cell vibe. One of the photos includes my beautiful view (the grey skies match the grey buildings… how cute). Also I included a picture of my DIY lamp, where I put all my old tickets, of course it’s a picture of my favourite ones, MOVE LIVE TOUR and a Leafs vs Capitals hockey game where I saw your boy Brooks.

Your Biggest Fan,
Hals xoxo

PS: I love DIYs! I always do the ones you put on your website. I love the lip scrub made out of coffee grounds and the bath bombs were super fun to make! Anyways, hopefully you can help a girl out! Thanks for everything, Jules! Continue Reading

Steal My Look For Less

Lexi, Harley and I were on our way to work on a top secret project (which I can’t wait to share with you guys!) when I took a step back to recognize how much I loved this look. This fringed graphic sweater feels like a dream and the white oxfords made me feel extra fancy.

This style can be recreated for literally any budget! You don’t need a million bucks in the bank to look like — you guessed it — a million bucks! Check out these excellent options for feeling extra cool in your everyday… Continue Reading

Get This Look: Fishtail Top Knot

A few weeks ago on Dancing with the Stars, I wore a sleek gold dress with a dark red lip and slicked back hair fashioned into a dramatic fishtailed top knot. I knew I loved this look, but I didn’t realize that you all loved it too until I got home and read your comments (thank you, btw!).

There were countless questions about the braided top knot and how stylist Chad Wood hooked it up. I figured it would be best if the creator himself shared his step-by-steps to top knot perfection.

Take it away, Chad!

#Twinning

When my friend and hair stylist Riawna arrived to the Dancing With The Stars set last week we immediately burst into laughter.

She was wearing one of my favorite outfits — or, was I wearing hers? I can’t remember. Regardless, we were both wearing one-piece denim jumpers by Forever 21. Riawna and I obviously agree, one and done is the way to go!

A simple, stylish one piece is not only comfortable, it’s ridiculously convenient. You can forget about the stress of putting together an outfit when all you have to do is grab a few accessories and go.

Mad For Bags: 3 Fun Fall Trends

Handbags are getting some serious attention this season as far as accessories go. Most designers went for a very specific and textured look this season. Velvet has taken over accessories in general. Bags, shoes, boots, and other staples are all featuring the soft stuff. Come to think of it, most of the fall trends for purses are all about fluffy or cozy materials.

Here are three bag trends I’m loving right now:

1. Faux Fur
At first, I wasn’t so sure about this style but after some online research, I found appreciation for the “furse.” Is it right for say, brunch? Maybe not. But it could be really cute with a sweater and booties. Or even with the right dress. The only thing I’d avoid with this bag is wearing any other furry clothing or accessory because that would just be too much.

2. Heirloom
Maybe it was passed down to you from your grandmother, or maybe it was on sale last week. Either way, these precious vintage (or inspired) pieces are versatile and chic. I give them a definite thumbs up. Continue Reading

Natural Makeup Tips and Must Haves

I’m so happy because I’ve just learned a beauty trend I am a huge fan of is here to stay. Many of us have embraced natural looking makeup look, which enhances features with modest highlighter and a rosy glow. This is a major departure from the highly contoured and heavily made-up look that was so popular not that long ago, and I’m loving this shift into a more natural look because sometimes it’s exhausting to have to put so much effort into something as tedious as your cheekbones, right?!

Models strutting down runways during New York Fashion Week had the same au natural beauty look I’ve been loving, meaning the same fresh-faced style will still be trending in 2017. Can I get a woohoo?!

To achieve this look, the overall rule is “less is more,” however, the truth of the matter is it takes a little work to look effortless. The key word here is “natural.” Steer clear of bright hues, instead seeking out pale pinks, nudes, and modest bronzes. In order to pull off a luminous look, I stay away from anything with shimmer unless it’s a highlighter. My must-have make up products for appearing makeup free are featured below. Continue Reading

Blue Eyes That Pop In 5 Easy Steps

I’ve been dying to talk to you all about my make up from Monday night’s Dancing With The Stars. While I was getting ready, the cut and style of the dress reminded us of a mermaid, so my hair was braided back and styled cascading to the side, enhancing the mermaid vibe.

Spencer Barnes, my friend and pro make up artist, knew a fun, colorful eye was the way to go. Spencer chose a mix of cool blues, and I absolutely love the edgy look he created!

Steal My Emmys Style

It was an incredible honor and exciting moment for me to stand by the cast and crew for Grease: Live at the Emmys. Getting to be a part of such a fantastically talented group was so special to me, and winning four Emmy Awards was icing on the cake. With all the excitement surrounding the night, the question of what to wear was a big one. I absolutely love the Zuhair Murad dress I wore. I felt elegant, sexy, confident, and most importantly, like myself!

I was very lucky to have my friend and stylist Anita Patrickson find this stunning couture gown for my very special night. She’s kind of like a fairy godmother, come to think of it!

So many of you commented on my photos, wanting to know more details about the dress. A few mentioned people mentioned they love the look but don’t know how to pull off a white dress. Anita shares her story from that night and offers some great tips for getting your white gown on below.

To take this look down a few notches for a fancy brunch or dinner party, I found some beautiful pieces that have a similar style in white and nude. If you “steal” my style, let me know by tagging! I want to see!

How To Transition Your Closet From Summer To Fall

Saying adios to summer means it’s time to start tucking away our sunshine-y wardrobe to make way for fall wear. (A moment of silence, please.) Before you do a total seasonal switch out, think about some of the pieces you’ve been wearing and how they can transition to cooler weather and warmer tones.

I’m not quite ready to let go of some of my favorite summer trends. Chokers have been all over the place lately, looking super cute with tank tops and breezy dresses. I’m keeping these little guys around for fall, pairing them with sweaters, collared shirts, denim jackets and more. Mixing and matching seasonal styles is the best way to keep your favorite summer looks around for a little while longer, and I’m definitely going to be taking advantage of this sneaky fashion tactic!

I’ve Got Your Back (Pack)

We’ve come a long way from the days of the basic canvas backpacks. Fashion designers have finally jumped on board to have our back! Stores that used to only carry handbags, clutches and wallets in the accessories departments are stocking up on backpacks in all shapes, sizes and styles.

There’s really no excuse not to choose a bag that represents your personal style. Some people might think it’s silly to invest in anything special because it’s just a bag to haul your books from class to class. If that were true, then what’s the point in wearing a purse you love? Might as well carry around a paper bag, right? Wrong! A backpack is an accessory you’re going to wear day in and day out. Why not love it?

I love all these options. The quilted leather (faux leather is just as fancy in my opinion) and black floral are very on trend for fall and winter, plus they’ll go with almost any outfit. Click on any of the images below for more information.
