Angelica:

If I won I would choose these: http://www.famousfootwear.com/Shopping/ProductDetails.aspx?p=18159&pg=1022602 – I like that they are slimmer than the originals, don’t get me wrong I love my original Converse, but sometimes they feel heavy and these look like they would definitely solve that problem!

About the Brush Kit

This is what Sigma has to say about the brush kit:

The Synthetic Face Kit contains three face brushes for high definition, flawless makeup application. The brushes in this collection feature exclusive Synthetic filament, specially designed to apply powder and liquid products without absorption into the fibers. The shape, density and height of the filaments were carefully engineered to perfectly buff products onto the skin, resulting in a high definition effect.

I first got acquainted with Sigma last year when I was on the lookout for a well-sorted brush kit. I didn’t want to spend a fortune, so MAC was ruled out. The second best thing, so I heard and read, would have to be Sigma brushes and after doing some research on this then new-to-me brand I decided to give it a go. I ordered their Professional 12-piece Brush Kit for $99 and never looked back. I just love my Sigma brushes and would definitely buy from them again!

Then, a few months ago, I was offered the chance to get my hands on the Sigmax Synthetic Face Kit and of course I jumped at the chance. Just let me keep it short & sweet: these brushes are just as good as the Sigma brushes I already own (which means they’re really good!). They’re super soft and I love to put my foundation on with the F80 (Flat Top Kabuki) and now always use the F82 (Round Top Kabuki) for a precise blush application. Don’t trust my words? Then check out the many rave reviews on the Sigma website.

Welcome Our Newest Team Member: Erica!

by Irina on January 9, 2011

It’s been a while since we last had a new addition to the team, but 2011 has started out pretty well for InTheirCloset as we are proud to welcome our newest writer, Erica, to the team. Erica is a lovely 25-year old fashion enthusiast who’s earned her expertise by working in luxury retail. Read her interview below to get to know her better. Now don’t be shy and give Erica a warm welcome.

Erica, please tell our readers a few things about yourself. Where do you come from? What are you doing for a living? What’s your favorite food & color? 🙂

Erica

E: I was born and raised in sunny San Diego, CA. I’m black (Afro American), white, Cherokee Indian and my father is an immigrant. I suppose you can’t get any more American than that. Currently I’m residing in South Carolina yet looking to relocate back to Atlanta, GA and start working luxury retail again!

I’m not sure what my favorite food is as there aren’t too many things I won’t try. But, one thing I do crave when I go back home to San Diego, CA is a “California Burrito”. A local SD specialty and it’s amazingly delicious (and unhealthy). If you’re not familiar with it look it up for yourself to see the contents!

My favorite color is probably green but I wear a ton of black.

How did you get involved with fashion?

E: I got my first taste of fashion when I was very young. Around the age of 9 I modeled for a Barbie clothing line. Also, when I was in college I did several other modeling gigs. Then after graduating from College of Charleston with my Bachelor’s degree in International Business, I moved to Atlanta where I had my first experience of true luxury fashion. I have worked for Elie Tahari and Valentino.

What’s your personal style? Any favorite designers?

E: If I were to describe my style I’d say it’s simplistic yet chic. I love jewelry yet tend not to wear any accessory that’s too heavy. I love a great pair of jeans with a super high heel or a flat boot. And I always love adding in a splash of color either in my accessories or my ready-to-wear. I can’t think of any color that I’m afraid of or don’t like. Yet, the fact of the matter is I work out a ton so you might see me in my workout-wear and running shoes first!

Some of my favorite luxury designers include Valentino (not because I worked there either), Alexander McQueen, Lanvin, Balenciaga, YSL and Chloé. I also LOVE a handful of contemporary designers such as Elizabeth and James (I love their button up collared shirts), Theory which I find great for basics and Elie Tahari, honestly make a great pair of jeans.

Erica's Ultimate Spring 2011 Outfit

Erica’s Ultimate Spring 2011 Outfit

How long have you been following InTheirCloset.com already and how come you wanted to write for us?

E: I was introduced to InTheirCloset.com by a friend last summer and I’ve been following the site ever since. I wanted to write for InTheirCloset.com because I’ve always wanted to blog about fashion and thought this would be the perfect opportunity to let myself go!

Christian Louboutin Rolando Pumps in black patent

If I was a fashion-item, I’d be…

E: No question, a Christian Louboutin “Rolando” pump!

I would never wear…

E: Scrunchies, may I just say YUCK? They make decent hair ties out there; a scrunchy seriously doesn’t have to be an option! That and probably plastic earrings.

I can’t leave the house without…

E: My cell phone and chapstick. I’m absolutely a texting junky. I even text my parents as much as they hate it!

Best Spring 2011 collection?

E: Lanvin. Elbaz’ collection had a great balance of neutral and bright colors. You could give me any piece from that collection and I’d be pleased!

Lanvin Spring 2011 Collection

Lanvin Spring 2011

Your mantra for 2011?

E: “We will become fulfilled when we know who we are.” – An attribution of Elizabeth Edwards

Thank you, Erica, for taking the time to answer these questions and again, WELCOME!
