S E C R E T S of the W E E K: Suede Wedged Boots

CR Suede Wedged Boots

We've done it AGAIN! Our Secrets of the Week went VIRAL between, Angel-la, Davee-la, & Mina Beans. After coming home with my pair and sharing my fabulous holiday gifts with the girls they went OMG crazy over these babies. When more than two of the SFA members purchase the same item it becomes featured as the Secrets of the Week (SOTW). Unfortunately, if you want a pair of these bad girls you'll have to order online because they're sold out throughout the MPLS area! Goodluck finding them around town ;) PS- we purchased these at the fabulous and affordable price of $20 from what I like to call, Charlotte Russel but it's really Charlotte Rousse.

S E C R E T S of the W E E K: NAKED Palette

"'Love it or Leave it.' Guaranteed"- Urban Decay

Merry Christmas! This year almost every SFA family member received one of these bad boys in their stocking! The Urban Decay Naked Palette has been sold out since it first came out. The palette is a mere $44 and provides a range of light to dark colors with a variety of shimmer, glitter, and matte textures. It also comes with an eye pencil and primer. In order to get a hold of one of these babies you'll need to be put on a waiting list or call up every Ulta, Sephora, or Beauty Store near you and hope they'll put it on hold for you. Even the website is out of stock! With all that said, if you have this palette and love it send us pictures or stories of why you love the naked palette or how you acquired one of these bad boys!!! There's our secret, until next time. 

ciao betches,

EVENTS: Lola Grand Opening

Fellow Fashionistas...Mall of America (located in Minnesota) has a new fab place to shop (FYI this place is the ONLY one in the US)!!! Secrets Fashion Agency attended LOLA'S grand opening party at the Mall of America on November 6th 2010. What is Lola? What's the hype? Lola carries a variety ranging from, casual to chic dresses, studded/embellished tops, distressed skinny jeans to assorted accessories. Lola is FULL of great energy and much much MORE! The price point for the product is extremely reasonable especially for denim, which ranges from $24.00-$30.00 (Don't worry, SFA's keeping all the students in mind). Shop at Lola and you will be sure to find all the key pieces for everyday street chic to a night out on the town. When you visit, make sure to take the extra few minutes to try the clothing on and get a peek of the fitting rooms because they're just plain adorable! Just like the fitting rooms, the decor screams fashion, fun, and leisure. SFA had a FABULOUS time at the grand opening; there was a fun photo booth, up beat DJ who played songs that you could not help to dance to, and everyone had a chance to mingle with Lola's amazing employees. Girls, get your shopping shoes on and head on over to Lola at the MOA to create your next fashion statement.

S E C R E T S of the W E E K: Cuff Bracelets

Cuff up the good stuff!

SFA's SECRET to making a bold statement is super chunk-AY! When making those finishing touch's to your fit, spruce it up with a chunky cuff bracelet.You will most def spot an SFA girl sporting a cuff to her casual or even dressy fit. This accessory can be an easy and cheap find. Our girl Angel scored  her adorable  snake skin cross over cuff & black lock cuff on Black Friday at the Guess Accessory store in MOA, Davee snatched her brown lock cuff from Saks Fifth Avenue, and I (Mel) snagged mine from Fringe on Grande Ave in St.Paul. Ladies, no matter what style you represent; chic, rocker, classy or just plain jane...this certain accessory will most def make a statement about you and your great fashion sense.

Everyone loves unique nails, whether they are freestyle designs, gel designs, french, or just plain color. But I had no clue what Jojo had in plan for my birthday present. I mean, I knew I was gettin' my nails did, but c'mon, a 45 min. drive to Solar Nails in Plymouth, MN just to get a manicure!?!? Get outta here! So obviously I haven't heard of the SECRET yet. Until Jojo surprised me with MINX nails. Happy Birthday to me! I loved my new MINX nails! It surely was worth the trip.

S E C R E T S of the W E E K: Morrocan Oil

The secret behind Team SFA's luscious hair?

Photo Courtesy of: Tease Salon

This magic in a bottle instantly revives your hair, strengthening and conditions!  It gives the definite shine without the icky feeling when you think of the term "oil".  This product also protects your hair from environmental factors, restores it's elasticity, and believe it or not, reduces drying time when it's wet!  At times, I even use it for my skin!  And the best part, it smells great!  You can find Moroccan Oil in salons throughout the nation.  It's a must have goodie to always keep in your bag!

1st Lady Vashtie Kola for Air Jordan

L A D I E S ,
let's put this in the books that our girl Vashtie Kola "downtown's sweetheart" has set the bar yet again! being one of our idols/inspirarions/rolemodels/everything in between and all around we had to do it BIG. in HONOR of the FIRST lady to design a pair of Air Jordan Retro 2 Sneakers, S E C R E T S held a private photoshoot @studiiyo23. miss VK, is most DEFF an independent woman who lives life by her own demeanor; a director, artist, producer & most importantly a visionary entrepreneur. BIG shout outs to miss VK & thank you for paving the way for those of us who are on our way to

VK's Personal Color Description- "The color is representative of me, my brand VIOLETTE and the females that would wear the shoe – so the deep purple and lavender made the most sense. I also wanted to stay true to the silhouette since the Jordan is a man’s shoe, I wanted to balance those two worlds of masculine and feminine. Since it’s the 25th anniversary of the 2, it was important to pay homage which you traditionally do through giving the gift of silver. You’ll notice the silver accents throughout the shoe."- DIMEMAG

Big SHOUTOUT to the owner of Studiiyo23 Moh Habib for my FAB pair.

S E C R E T S of the W E E K: Mulberry for Target

What's our S E C R E T S?
Officially launched at select Target stores today til December 24th.

The boss-lady (Angel), per usual, was definitely on her purse game & copped hers ASAP (right after dim sum!). The Pebble Crossbody is perfect for date night, GNO (Girl's Night Out- get on your acronym game!) & can even be a substitute for your big ass messenger bag I know you're always dragging around at school. For the more visually-conscious folks, we included some eyecandy of what kind of S E C R E T S you can find in an SFA girl's Mulberry bag.
