This dress pairs well with a pair of summer espadrilles or flat sandals. Perfect for a dinner date or a night out with friends, this dress can easily transition from season to season.

The Dior Buckhead Atlanta Boutique Opening with featured blogger: Monica Awe-Etuk

Uncategorized By September 29, 2016 No Comments


Hey Lovelies, happy Thursday! Last week I had the pleasure of attending the opening of the Dior boutique located at the Shops Buckhead Atlanta. The barricades for the boutique had been up for a while,  creating anticipation to see the boutique. I too became anxious to see what it would look like, would it really capture the essence of Paris, and what would the assortment look like? I have to say the store met every expectation and some. The store is the epitome of luxury. Once you enter the boutique, you are greeted by the beautiful scents of  Dior, New Look 1947, and Amber Nuit. The luxurious decor is complimented by all things Dior. I truly felt like a kid in a candy store because the The product assortment which consisted of; handbags, Jewelry ready-to-wear, sunglasses, and shoes was all absolutely stunning! You guys know I love bags, hence my eyes went straight to the beautiful selection of bags which included an array of one of a kind exotic skins, and specialty pieces like the Diorama Club.  I have to say the store is definitely one of the most beautiful stores I have ever seen, and I highly encourage you to go in have a look, and shop with the highly experienced staff


Diptyque Skincare: The Real Deal

Uncategorized By September 16, 2016 No Comments

Is it summer? Is it fall? We don’t know about you, but everyone over at Style Scene is feeling a dried out from the constant changes in weather — which is why we’re super (hashtag) excited to try out the new skincare line from

Dipyque’s ‘ L’Art du Soin’! This skincare collection is the REAL deal. Every product is so delicate and beautiful and these products actually work. Here’s a product breakdown and why we think every beauty lover needs to take these products for a test drive.




This product isn’t new, but it’s been a Style Scene favorite since Diptyque opened its doors at The Shops Buckhead Atlanta.  The Infused Facial Water is so refreshing that a couple dabs will not only compliment the rest of your skincare regimen (it’s packed with Vitamins!) but it will also make you feel refreshed and energized — perfect for that mid-day slump.

TIP: Buy a travel size spray bottle

and fill with the Infused Facial Water so you can refresh your skin all day!




We were a bit skeptical of this balm at first (SPOILER: It’s amazing!), but the second it touched our skin and turned into a fine oil, we believed they hype.

And because it’s so gentle, this was a particularly great cleanser for those of us who often time use products containing retinol and salicylic acid.




Our friends at Diptyque told us this powder is “enriched with flower petal and white clay powders, and was inspired by traditional Asian skincare rituals.” Which is amazing, but we REALLY love this product because of it changes texture from a powder into foamy goodness when you add water.

The bottle is HUGE and will last you a long time, which means long-term savings $$.




We can’t tell you enough how much we love this product. If the changing of seasons has left you feeling out to dry (us too!), this is the perfect product for you. We used just a few drops at bedtime

before applying Diptyque’s Essential Facial Cream and woke up to fresh and rejuvenated-looking skin after just one use. Plus, the aromatic flower extract smells heavenly!



The bottle says it’s good for all skin types,

but for those of us with sensitive skin, Diptyque’s Essential Face Cream is like a little gift from heaven. Combined with the Infused Face Oil for a nighttime treatment, or on it’s own during the day, this cream lives up to its namesake! This product is especially great layered after using an “on the spot” treatment because it gives you the moisture that your skin needs! Thumbs up emoji for the essential face cream.



This light moisturizing lotion protects skin from all the unnecessary toxins it comes into contact with. Perfect for a city girl on the go, apply in the morning and feel hydrated all day (side note, it’s the perfect size for to keep in your carry-all tote or glove box!).




Our lips are THIRSTY! This matte lip-balm is perfect for pre or post lipstick application and keeps your lips looking kissable all day long. Nourishing balm for the lips… for the win!
