Denim Trend - Ultra Wide Leg

Definitely a more widely accepted trend when it comes to jeans.

Here are a few blog-worthy, and of course...haute, pairs.
Often considered the 'baggy jean look', this year's wide leg is slightly more fitted.
Therefore a little more flattering.

It is also easy to transition wide legs from day to night...
these jeans look haute with flats or heels.

Fab Fall Fragrances

Coco Chanel once said "A woman who doesn't wear perfume has no future". With all of the new releases this Fall, there's surely one for everyone. Here are a few luxurious options:

Prada Infusion d'Iris

Gucci by Gucci

Fendi Palazzo

Jo Malone White Jasmine and Mint


Snake Venom, Anyone?

The new Peter Thomas Roth Un-Wrinkle Eye uses SYN-AKE, a synthetically simulated viper’s venom with an active peptide that mimics the venom of the Temple Viper, which has proven to be very effective in blocking muscular contraction-reducing wrinkles & fine lines.

Haute Oil Treatment

Darphin Tangerine Aromatic Care -a delicious citrus-scented elixir nourishes and revitalizes the skin – fighting the loss of elasticity and diminishing visible lines... leaving you with a youthful, smooth, and radiant complexion.

Massage into skin as part of your nightly beauty ritual. Very French, very glamorous, and, actually – very beneficial to the skin.

Dermacia Breathable Foundation

Dermacia foundation is amazing! I have tried them all, seriously! and this is so far my favorite.

I have been very loyal to my current brand, but ever since I sampled this two weeks ago, I am hooked!!!

Dermacia is mostly effective for covering post surgical scars, acne scars, rosacea, etc...but because of its unique formula and attributes it is great for any skin!

Dermacia is not heavy and the coverage is amazing! I have used Bobbi Brown, Physician Formula, Chanel, Trish McEvoy, Mary Kay and others, but this truly is great foundation.

Click here for a free 30 day trial - only $9.95 for shipping. The foundation retails at $48 but worth it! It is concentrated, so a lot goes a long long way.

HauteSpot Interview: Kristin Ingwell Goode, Editor

Kristin Ingwell Goode
Editor, Environmentalist, Momma-to-be!, but already one serious hautemomma!

Chevy Chaser / Southsider
Smiley Pete Publications
434 Old Vine Street
Lexington, KY 40507
(859) 266.6537

Kristin is such a delightful and refreshing person to know. Just listening to her talk about ways we can become more environmentally conscious takes this concept to a whole new level. Kristin not only supports environmental awareness, but she continues to support and promote the local communities in which she associates herself.

One thing HMS has learned from her example; try harder to research unique ways companies, we buy from daily, are working to help improve our world. Many, of our favorite, retail brands have implemented numerous recycling programs we can take advantage of everyday!

Now many of you know Kristin as the editor of two very popular reads, the Chevy Chaser and the Southsider magazines. Kristin is just about to take maternity leave to have her first baby!!! However, she works hard and does a great job keeping these two haute magazines wildly popular!

Get to know Kristin a little better below and find out more why she is more than worthy of the HauteSpot!
Favorite vacation Spot?
Anywhere with good restaurants and a good farmers market.
Portland, Oregon is a favorite, and Toronto was a fantastic city to visit.

Favorite restaurant (local or not)?
The Holly Hill Inn in Midway. If given a choice I always lean toward any locally owned restaurants that also serve local products.

Style Icon?
Charlotte from "Sex In the City."
I would love to have her closet (and her stylist!)

Favorite gift to give?
Anything made locally or by hand. I recently found a friend a gift at the Woodland Art Fair--perfect because it wasone-of-a-kind and not mass produced.

What's in your beauty bag?
Three different lip liners and a sharpener(from Origins, Aveda, and The Body Shop), two different shades of pinkgloss, a neutral Arbonne lipstick, a powder compact, four hair clips, Band-Aids, Burt's Bees cuticle creme (my cuticles would look better if I'd use it rather than just carry it around), my emergency container (with bobby pins, pain relievers, lozenges, and safety pins), two nailfiles, and Trident gum (original flavor, in case anyone's wondering).

Favorite hotel (local or not)?
I haven't been to one yet but aspire to spend a couple nights in a Four Seasons someday.

Cocktail of choice?
I do like cocktails, including raspberry martinis, but really good Pinot Noir is my favorite alcoholic beverage.

Style advice?
I'm really not the person to give style advice, although there do seem to be a lot more don'ts around than dos to take to heart. I'll just say I think it's better to blend in than stand out for the wrong reason when style is concerned.

What is style?
Although I work in words, that is a tough one to define.

What is at the top of your style / wardrobe wish list?
A brand new non-maternity outfit!
Beyond that, I'd love to find a snazzy fitted pink winter coat, but not sure I'm brave enough to pull it off. (HMS thinks she is - go for it!)

Favorite Mantra?
Commit yourself to constant self improvement.

What would be your first step to making Lexington, KY more eco-friendly?
First--getting local businesses, especially those that serve lots of items in plastic or glass containers to actually recycle, rather than throw away, those items. That drives me crazy! Hearing a trash can full of glass bottles being dumped into a garbage truck headed for the landfill. Ugh. Second--encourage everyone who has cityservices to actually use their Rosie.

If you could interview anyone for your publication, who would it be and why?
Linda Bruckheimer (wife of Hollywood producer Jerry Bruckheimer).
They have a home in rural Kentucky and have invested a lot of time,money, and effort into the local economy, but apparently are not eagerto talk about it to the press.

You are very environmentally conscious, what are your favorite eco-friendly brands/products?
I love Burt's Bees and I'm thrilled to see it turn up in mainstream stores. I am a big fan of Seventh Generation and ecover household cleaning products. I also really like Preserve products. They work with Stonyfield Farm to use recycled yogurt cups to make toothbrushes, reusable razors, and even plastic cutlery and tableware (instead of paper for picnics, large parties, or kids). If you order their razors online, they even send you a postage-paid envelope to return them to the company when you are done so they will recycle them again. I love that!

Glam Makeup

This fall, Glam is back. As seen on models during the Fall 2007 fashion shows, creamy red lips and smoky, purple eyes rule the season. Dany Sanz, creator of Make Up For Ever, teaches you how to turn the look into your own:

Red lips are sexy and classic.
Line lips with a waterproof lip liner such as Aqua Lip #9C ($16.00) to create definition and to keep lipstick put. Fill in lined lips with a cherry red, moisturizing lipstick like Lipstick #207 ($18.00). Seal the deal with a lip sealant to keep the red hue from fading throughout the day such as NEW Lip Seal ($20.00).

Purple reigns for the eyes. Here's a great look that works for day as well as evening:
Line top lash line with a deep purple cream liner, such as the NEW Aqua Creamliner #5 ($20.00). Swipe a burgundy shadow such as NEW Diamond Eye Shadow #311 ($20.00) over the lid and brow bone. Finish the look with two coats of a lash extending mascara such as Lengthening Mascara ($19.00).
We are big fans of the Aqua liners for lips and eyes...they last forever and are quick & easy to apply! Check them out at Sephora!
