I feel like I've spent the past couple of months clothed in beautiful pieces from The Concrete Runway. You've seen me wear a few items from this Miami-based company recently (birdcage, labor of love and culottes & the gang), and I can't wait to get my hands on more.

The Concrete Runway wants you to wear clothes that make you feel empowered and confident, which is pretty easy to do with their bold choices. It's so that no matter where you are, you're always walking on your own concrete runway. The three pieces that I've worn on the Muse are all items that I wouldn't normally wear because they are a bit more revealing than usual. But they are total perfection since they pushed me out of my comfort zone. And that's one of the things I love most about this brand.

These are just a few of my favorites, but there are so many other stunning options. Be sure to check out The Concrete Runway and let me know which pieces stand out to you. And remember, every day is a fashion show!

Do you want to have a good hair day, every day? Well then you need to invest in the ghd AIR professional hair dryer. Usually, I don't put a lot of heat to my hair, but that's when I'm wearing it in its natural state. Right now, I've been really into curly and wavy styles for fall/winter, but I want this look without it being too frizzy. This is where the hairdryer comes in.
With these extensions in, I have no problem blow drying my hair to create the perfect look. The two concentrated nozzles and the AC motor allow the dryer to give my hair the look I want in less time than a normal dryer. My old dryer did not have nozzles, so I honestly have no idea how I lived without those all this time. The ionic technology lets my hair lock in moisture without frizzing! It took next to no time to get my hair from wet to dry, and it felt quite soft as well.
The ghd AIR has an ergonomic design for easy handling. The buttons--which include two speeds, three heat settings and a cool air shot--are located on the back of the hair dryer so it's easier for you to reach while blow drying your hair. It's a little pricey, clocking in at $225, but it's totally worth it over one that you can get for $30 at the drugstore. It will last longer (comes with a one year warranty) and will give you better results in less time. I spent a little time drying with the cool shot to create more fluff and body for my end results.
This is the big hair look that I was going for--on the left--or a bit more tame on the right. Next to this hair dryer, I just need a ceramic vented radial brush and I'll be all set. I think I'll give my old hair dryer to my Pomeranian. He loves a good cool shot. And I know...my dog now has his own hair dryer. Who am I?

Do you have this ghd AIR hairdryer--or another great hair product to share?

The hubs says this look is old school Hollywood meets church lady--but what does he know! I have a confession. I'm a bit hooked on quilted material. I recently realized that I have a pair of quilted pants, a quilted jacket, and I just added these quilted sneakers to the mix. Do you think I need an intervention? Me neither--these shoes are way too hot. And they made it really easy to gallivant around town snapping photos with my Nokia Lumia 635. 

As part of the #StyledByLumia challenge, I'm sharing what goes on during a photo shoot for an outfit post for the Muse. It's usually spending time trying to figure out where to take pictures, and then finding a fun place to eat instead. This time around it was a shaved ice place in Japantown (cherry/lime with condensed milk filling). Per usual, in between photos for the blog, I take photos for Instagram, so the Nokia Lumia came in quite handy for a quick shot of my sweet treat. And afterward I can store the images in Lumia Storyteller and put together something like a mobile scrapbook. Keep up with me and my Lumia challenge by following me on social!

By the way, how cute is the cross collar on this shirt? I wanted to title this post Masterchef because of it, but then I thought the shirt seemed more like a painter's smock--but then that seemed wrong too. What the hell does this cross collar remind me of? Thoughts? Your help would be greatly appreciated.
