morning routine essentials...24 Aug 2016

Morning Routine Essentials

Since you guys have been seeing my face up close and personal lately on Instagram stories and Snapchat, I've been getting questions about some of the products I use and wanted to do a post with some of my favorite morning essentials that help make me look somewhat awake during the day ;)

1. DryBar dry shampoo helps to keep my bangs and roots of my hair looking not greasy between washings.

2. I don't wear perfume but I love these light and fresh Anese elixirs especially on a hot day.

3. Nars orgasm blush is my must-have essential for adding some color to my face—it's the perfect pink with a nice flush of gold in there.

4. DryBar brush for my bangs (I usually just use my fingers to comb the rest of my hair so it doesn't get too fluffy).

5. I never believed in anti-aging serums until I tried this No 7 serum. It's made my skin softer and brighter, and I use it under my moisturizer.

6. For that pop of lip color, I like stain sticks because they're not too heavy while still adding color. My favorites are Glossier Generation G lip stain in Crush and Revlon Balm Stain in Sweetheart.

7. Finally (not shown), I currently have eyelash extensions which I love because it's a little bit of upkeep to make my daily routine so minimal—I don't wear any eye makeup at all unless I'm going out to a fancy evening dinner. These days, more and more people know how to apply natural-looking extensions that are safe and relatively low-maintenance. I won't go into this in too much detail unless you guys have questions about it but I had to mention it since it comes up a lot in direct messages and I did not want anyone to think my lashes just look like that naturally ;). 

If you have any other questions, feel free to ask!

dressing the team / culottes!23 Aug 2016

Team-9-R-blog

Culottes have been a very popular trend this summer as a fun option that looks like a cross between pants and a skirt. As we head into fall, we're loving culottes as a great transition piece we could bring into the fall. Here's how the whole Oh Joy team wore their culottes...

Angie, our designer, went graphic in black and white with pops of color and metallic in her accessories. Angie's wearing Anthropologie culottes, ASOS sandals, Danskin bodysuit, and a DIY vintage scarf necklace.

Jess, our crafting assistant, is keeping it cool and casual in ASOS culottes (similar and similar), ASOS tank, Madewell sandals (similar), Bauble Bar necklace, Noonday Collection beaded bracelet, and Noonday Collection gold bracelet. Because Jess is 4'11", she did need to have the length of her pants hemmed to hit mid-calf.

Julia, our Creative Producer & Stylist, is making a statement with these floral culottes with straps by ASOS, a simple Nordstrom tee, and Nino suede mules. She didn't need to add jewelry to this outfit since the straps add a lot of interest to the outfit.

Courtney, my Executive Assistant, is playing it cool and summery in these chambray culottes from Target (similar), Gap tank blouse (similar), Lucky Brand sandals, and chunky necklace by Noonday.

Joy, that's me...I'm wearing plaid culottes by Ace & Jig, a bodysuit by Thief & Bandit, and Marais sandals. These pants almost look like a skirt when I wear them which makes my outfit look dressier than it really is, yet still so comfy!

A few things we learned about wearing culottes:

1. Culottes tend to look great with a fitted tee (or even a bodysuit) underneath.

2. Whether your wear a tee or blouse, tucking the top into the pants help to define the smallest part of your waist to help contrast with the looser pant style.

3. Since the pants can hit anywhere between mid-calf to ankle, there can be some flexibility in the length which makes them wearable for a variety of heights.

What do you guys think? Have you been rocking culottes this summer?

happy friday + a busy week...19 Aug 2016

Oh Joy on Fuller House Set

Normally I'm busy in the office, but this was an extra eventful week. I think that all my 80s and 90s childhood dreams came true when I got to watch a taping of Fuller House, tour the set, meet the cast (and see guest stars NKOTB!). I also did a little vintage shopping, got my boba on, and had a special visitor, Sarah Michelle Gellar! Happy weekend!

Ps. Regarding the debate of live story apps, for now, I'll be in IG Stories during the week and Snapchat on the weekends!

So just a final heads up if you've been meaning to get something from our current collection...there's just a few weeks left until the fall collection arrives and the summer pieces are gone! We get a lot of emails asking to find products after the season has passed, and there's nothing we can do once it's sold out ;(

Get them online and in-stores now...
