Julep - Classic... With a Twist!



For many years, I've considered myself to be classic with a twist.  This is why I'm a huge fan of stores like J.Crew that embody what my personal style is all about!  You'll find wonderful classic pieces with interesting color combinations and stand out accessories that give your otherwise outfit, well... a twist!  Last Spring, i discovered Julep!  In doing so, i was asked to take a profile quiz to determine what kind of "maven" i was.  Well, naturally i knew that i was Fashion Maven Mommy... but we need more clarity when it came to nail polish colors! So, i carefully selected all my favorite celebrity dos, accessories, looks, etc... and what do you know?  Even Julep knew that i am a 'classic with a twist' maven!  You'd think we've known each other for years right?  Well, I've been a loyal maven ever since and have loved all of my wonderful monthly selections! 



So i thought it'd be fun to highlight three colors that totally embody the "classic with a twist" look i love so much! 

Lets begin with Olivia... i fell instantly in love with this color not only for it's name (one of my twin girls is named Olivia), but because of the rich chocolate hue.  I mean, what girl doesn't love chocolate right? 







 


The next color, a rich plum, is called Gayle.  I've become a huge fan of deep aubergine hues and have been rocking them often this Fall. 


Doesn't it look gorgeous against this coffee cozy my mommy made for me?

 
 

The third color Catherine, is the epitome of classic... red that is!  Every maven needs a great red polish and this one does not disappoint!  Pair it with a great animal print or metallic for  a fun twist!





So these are my go to classic with a twist nail colors.  What are your go to colors?  Are you a Julep Maven yet?  If so, what kind of Maven are you?  If not, then stop reading and go sign up!!!! 

Thank you so much for reading!  Don't forget to become an official follower of FMM!  XOXO Carla
