I can finally tell you guys I’m the new spokesmodel for Tees by Tina!!!
I’m a huge fan of their tops and own them in almost every color. They are my go to item in my closet to wear alone, layered under a jacket, or even to work out in. I’m someone who loves to shop all the big designers and am all about quality. These tanks are amazing! Slimming because they hold you in where you need held in and push you up where you need a lift. Plus they’re one size fits all. My mom, my sister (who just had a baby), and I can all wear them.
I’m such a big fan and I’m excited we are now working together to push a product I truly believe in. Trust me, when you purchase your Tee’s by Tina tank it will be your go to item. It’s easy, slimming, sexy and I always get compliments when I wear them!

A new pair of tights can make an old skirt feel magically reborn. Even though skirt hems seem to be going longer for fall/winter, tights of all colors, textures, and styles are playing a big role in a woman’s closet this season. That means quirky prints, faux garters and mock suspenders, florals, and lots of leopard are all playing a part in autumn’s new brand of legwork.

Bing’s Beauty Bag

As we all know, Mercedes Benz Miami Fashion Week just happened. Since we all couldn’t be front row center for the sexy shows or sipping mojitos by the pool, our favorite model extraordinaire Hope Dworaczyk took notes while SHE WAS, and brings you the best Miami Fashion Week beauty insider secrets and tips straight from the runway and backstage. One thing for sure is that when South Beach does fashion, it does not get hotter… in more ways than one. Besides, if there is anyone out there who could teach us how to be “summer sexy” it’s Hope! It kinda makes you want to say “I’m in Miami b*tch.” (Sorry, I had to!)
There was more bondage and boobs revealed this Swim Fashion Week than all other swim weeks combined. There wasn’t a color that stood out but there was a lot of nude colored suits and black bondage type suits. I saw faux leather, denim, lace, stone embellishments and more.
2.) Are there tricks backstage like leg or body makeup to make the models look even more flawless?
Make up artist can highlight your abs and cleavage with a few key strokes but the key to having flawless skin is a great moisturizer that makes you dewy and NOT oily. Something with a light shimmer is beautiful too.
3.) How about the hair? What looks are you seeing the designers using on their models? Big and beachy waves or straight and sleek… or bangs or braids?
Beachy waves will always be in for the summer. Simply because its next to impossible to keep your hair straight and sleek at the beach. Braids are a great way to add a little something, the messier the braid the sexier.
4.) In the summer it is so important to use SPF!!! What is your go-to sunscreen you swear by?
Neutrogena with the helioplex, Im crazy about protecting my face. I use a spf 30 moisturizer.
5.) Loud and statement nails seem to be really popular right now. What looks are you seeing walking down the runway?
Lots of neon yellows, cobalt blues. It was neon or nude colored. There wasn’t any in between. I normally love the pink “Fiji” color by Essie but right now I’m all about highlighter yellow if I’m at the pool or beach. It’s unexpected and really pops.
6.) Sometimes summer is the perfect time to take a risk and add a pop of color… like a vibrant coral or orange lipstick or blue shadow. Do you add a little extra something during the summer, or try out more daring looks?
I think a great summer look is the color mascara. It makes your eyes pop without looking over done, and you can skip the eyeshadow all together. Make sure its waterproof if your going to the beach or pool.
7.) What are your thoughts about make-up and the beach? A do or don’t? That kind of goes hand in hand with the debate about heels at the pool… frankly, I believe there is no place that my heels should not go… but that is just me.
A tinted moisturizer with sunscreen, big glasses and maybe a red lip or colored lip stain. If you’re at a pool there is no place heels cannot go and legs and butt will look even better propped up by stilettos!
8.) What would you bring in your beach bag for a day at the beach in South Beach?
Spf, lip stain, water, towel, ipod, great book, and sunnies.
9.) What looks are you noticing the other models working off the runway? Miami is the place to really “express yourself” makeup wise!
Off the runway models like Irina Shayk or Hilary Rhonda are walking around bronzed but very undone. Light make-up, some mascara. Very natural.
10.) There is nothing sexier than a tan (fake of course) with a shimmering lotion that looks amazing when it catches the light or moonlight… do you have a favorite summer sheen cream?
I like Satsuma shimmer lotion from The Body Shop. It smells really nice and isn’t sticky.
11.) Is the runway makeup different than photoshootmakeup?
Yes. Sometimes they spend only 10 minutes doing make-up backstage before the show. It’s a lot less perfected. I think the idea of it is a runway show is about the collection and designer’s clothes and not the girl wearing it. Photoshoot make-up is all about you. (And a lot of time the product your wearing ex. cover girl ad) So they take a lot more time perfecting you.
12.) Do you have any tips for using bronzer? So many ladies use it wrong and in the wrong places making them look dirty rather than bronzed. Do you have one you love?
To keep from looking “dirty” use a super large brush when applying the bronzer. And concentrate on the temples, bridge of the nose, and along the hair line. I have been in love with Nars bronzers, Laguna is great for lighter skin, and Casino works for deeper skin tones.
13.) What were your favorite beauty looks you saw on the runway during Miami Fashion Week? Which ones would you try yourself off the runway?
I love the blue shadows and liners. Bronzer is a sexy must. I love the headpieces also. Functional and stunning while keeping your hair tame! Also, the newest accessory it piece is a eye mask for sunning. They were gorgeous and can be worn as a headband, on the forhead or over the eyes while tanning. It was like lingerie for the eyes.
14.) What goes through your mind when you are strutting down the runway in a bikini?
Please let the only thing that bounces be my hair and my chest.
15.) And this is not beauty related, BUT how amazing were the bikinis? They had to have been GORGEOUS!
I’m actually a little sad I won’t be in a bikini enough next summer to wear all the beautiful and seductive suits I fell in love with.
