blog_beauty1Last week we launched our weekly Win It and Wear It Contest, based on the tremendous success of this year’s Fashion Issue with GT.

The contest ended on Aug. 24 and the winners are:
August Mae Ring: Zeyna

Our NEW CONTEST STARTS TODAY, and ends Sept. 1
The new prizes are:
blog_fashion1** Hand-made necklace from Stripe (see photo).
** Facial and gift from Beauty 360, Santa Cruz.

All you have to do is leave a comment here at this blog and tell us about something you’re obsessed with in fashion. Then, check back in a week to find out if you're a winner. And in the meantime, keep reading Obsessive Beauty in between, to discover the latest in beauty and fashion.

Stripe, a Downtown Santa Cruz retailer (reminiscent of Anthropologie) is a popular shopping destination where fashionistas can find hand-made jewelry like the necklace shown here, leather goods by Nuala, and clothing by Lex Designs, as well as bath products, children’s goods, and much more. Stripedesigngroup.com.

Think of Beauty 360 as an alternative to Sephora, with more hands-on service, and the friendliest staff you’ll meet. The Santa Cruz location is next door to the CVS on Mission Street, and the store boasts lines like the celebrity favorite Mario Badescu, and many others. Beauty360.com

Lately I've been obsessed with repurposed jewelry. I love to see the personality of the artist come through when they put together vintage bits and pieces. Fashion to me is about expressing your unique style and I feel jewelry is a great way to do it. BTW I love the store Stripe and feel right at home when I walk through the door. They have many wonderful artist showcased there and one day I hope to be one of them! Thanks for the opportunity to dream...

Obsessed with finding new life for last year's threads
written by Hilary Taglio, September 01, 2010
With the season change around the corner, I have been looking for ways to spruce up my fall/winter wardrobe by adding new accessories to not so new basics. Specifically, scarves and hats. A simple addition of a scarf can add so much color and life to a basic outfit. A hat, well, for me, it's about something bright and cheery to look cute even in the rain!

I love to create something that was once a throw away and bring it back to life. Retro to chic and much more! Hopefully that will catch on more and we can all bring styles back that were once forgotten.....smilies/smiley.gif Love the necklace.

Wow! Thanks for these giveaways!

Lately I've been obsessed with belts...not just in the belt loops, but getting creative making my flowy dress more a line by putting a belt higher up top or turning my blouse into a mini over leggings.

I've most recently become obsessed with accesorizing. Accesories can take a simple, but classic outfit and turn it into something a little edgy or fun and pull everything together. I count shoes as an accesory because they really can make or break the outfit. When I visit Santa Cruz, visiting Stripe will be a have to.

What I love and am obsessed about fashion is recycling and being green. I love to buy used clothing and gloat about the awesome price I paid! I also am obsessed with chams like the necklesses pictured about, they are so classic and timeless! I love it!

Gemini Festival of Goodwill, World Invocation Day

This entire week is a preparation by the New Group of World Servers (NGWS) for the June full moon (Tuesday) and to welcome the Forces of Reconstruction, great outer planetary forces streaming into the Earth at the Gemini Solar Festival. The Gemini Festival at the June full moon is called the Festival of Goodwill and World Invocation Day (recitation of the Great Invocation, the mantram of direction for humanity, hourly around the world). During the (12 degrees) Gemini festival, the Wesak blessing of the will-to-good is released and radiated (Gemini distributes) to humanity. When the will-to-good is received, humanity is then able to radiate goodwill to each other and to the kingdoms. The Gemini Festival is the third of the Three Spring Festivals (triangle of Force), setting the spiritual template and resources for Earth for the rest of the year (‘til next spring). This festival recognizes the true spirit of humanity—aspiring toward and seeking the will of God, dedicated to right human relation. At the full moon, the Divine nature of humanity is recognized. Christ stands with humanity, leader of his people, “the Eldest in a great family of brothers” (Romans VIII, 29.) Each year at the Gemini festival, Christ preaches the last sermon of Buddha, His brother, a sermon calling forth human and spiritual unity, represented by an outflow of love (work of the Christ) and wisdom (work of the Buddha). The forces of reconstruction stream in during the Festival, ushering in an era of pronounced creative activity, rebuilding the tangible world on new creative lines. This necessitates the total destruction of the old forms no longer useful for the new world era. Everyone is invited. Join us everyone for this Festival of Goodwill by reciting the Great Invocation.
