NOTD: Sophie from Julep Trina Turk Fall 2012

Posted on: September 25, 2012

This is Sophie from Julep’s Trina Turk collection for Fall 2012. Trina Turk is an amazing designer who partnered with Julep to coordinate the colors of her collection with Julep’s August selections.
Trina Turk is a real deal designer, and I was impressed with the collaboration between TT and Julep. She designs a full line of women’s ready to wear, swimwear and has a men’s line as well as a jewelry line. Her dresses this year reminded me so much of the 70’s.


I would totally wear both of these dresses, and I’m sure I wore something very similar in the 70’s. Maybe that is why I really love her clothes. Trina Turk has a beautiful website and her clothes can also be found in all the major retail stores, like Bloomingdales, etc….

Sophie is a nice mushroom color, very wearable, perfect for this time of year. I just cut my nails back, as they were getting too long for me, and I think this color looks great on shorter nails.
I think by now you all know Julep is a subscription based service for nail polish. If you haven’t signed up yet, you can still get your first box for ONE PENNY. I think this is a deal that cannot be beat, it’s ONE PENNY, no delivery charge, no handling fee, just one penny charged to your card and you get a box with 2 polishes, and either a full size hand cream or glycolic hand scrub and then usually an emery board, some sample products and other goodies. Their packaging is immaculate and the introductory box is impressive, especially for ONE PENNY! To get this deal, click the link above and at checkout, use the code COLOR2012, or NYFW2012.
Julep nail polish is definitely a great polish. The formula is perfect, usually full coverage with no VNL in one coat, great colors and they offer amazing sales and mystery boxes, which are always fun. You know I can’t pass up a good mystery box. The cost for the program is $19.99 per month, but they make it very easy to skip a month. To tell the truth I’ve skipped almost every month this summer because I did not care for the metallics and magnetics they offered. The August box was awesome but for September they are offering crackle. You can imagine the uproar from all the nail polish junkies, and I must say I am impressed Julep acted almost immediately and offered a “Maven’s Box” that was a box of 3 polishes, all cream finish and some nice colors. I did get that box. But really, crackle? I will be keeping my eye on Julep because they are supposed to be trendsetting with their colors but the last few months have not been so much trendsetting as playing catch up. Crackle?

This is about half the Julep polishes I have, they are pretty all lined up!

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Betty’s Blog

I have been a busy dog because my Mom has this new seizure disorder and its up to me to keep her home when she needs to. I also let her know when it's time to take me for my walk, my neighbors like me too.
My mom won't let me leave the yard but the other day I had to wake mom up and take her outside so she could call 911 for the neighbor lady who was having a heart attack. The firemen tried to take me with them but my mom, and I,, both said no.
It's starting to warm up and we have lots of birds and squirrels,. My mom doesn't like me chasing the squirrels, or the birds because we have a nest in one of the trees. She said we have to be quiet. Maybe I can send you a pic of the baby birds? I'll try.
Have a happy spring, my mom and are going to!
Love, Betty
