dior rendez-vous nail polish review fall 2021 nail polish

The dark neutrals are here! Fall 2021 nail polish is offering us dark neutrals, and deep shades of red. While this may not be an official hue from the Dior fall 2021 nail polish collection, it is a new shade from Dior which fits right into the fall 2021 nail polish trends we are getting prepared for!

So, the fall nail polish from Dior is allegedly going to be three metallic colors, but Rendez-Vous by Dior has launched at the same time as the fall nail polish collections from other designers hit store shelves. Therefore, let’s call this a precursor to fall, shall we? After all, it matches what other designers are putting out there!

Now you might be asking yourself, if other designers have similar hues in nail polish for fall, why choose Dior Rendez-Vous nail polish? Well, let me tell you, this beautiful grey-brown from Dior is a pretty rendition of the seasons’ neutral nail polish trend, and since it is Dior, it is chip-resistant and long lasting. That is reason enough!

I tested out Dior Rendez-Vous nail polish with one base coat, two coats of color, and one top coat. It’s very strong, and long lasting. Rendez-Vous by Dior is a cream nail polish and it goes on smoothly without streaking, offering a solid color on the nails. Love that!

This is a beautiful nail hue to wear now, and well into the fall season. The colors, which I heard are coming for fall from Dior, will be slightly avant-garde; if I heard correctly! Therefore, if you love Dior and prefer nail polish colors which are more neutral, and also ideal for an office environment, then Rendez-Vous is for you!

Thanks for stopping by!

summer street style trends san francisco bay area

BAF Weekly IT List from top left: linen joggers (so comfy-my summer go-to pants!) / summer nail polish: sparkling brown, sparkling gold / fall nail polish / mini tote (on major sale!) / black convertible IT bag (under $300) / booties with chain details (on sale under $100-hot trend for fall!) / classic IT bag / Gucci sneakers / running shoes /

Don’t let the dark hues in this week’s IT List scare you! This upcoming fall season is all about color; that being said, some things in the fashion realm will be neutral, and dark. So get ready to mix and match!

This fall season we are seeing dark neutrals for nail polish; note the fall nail polish hue from Chanel in the graphic above. My full review of Chanel’s fall nail polish collection will be ready in roughly one week, but I digress. . . shoes and handbags are being shown in neutral colors; look for black, dark brown, grey, and various shades of putty and tan. This will allow you to have some fun with your clothing, which will be more colorful than in autumn past. Love!

That being said, summer clothing and accessories are still hot right now! As temperatures rise, and stay up through September, we all need cool clothing and accessories to match. These linen pants are hot right now; since they keep you cool. Sneakers are also selling like hot cakes as people return to traveling and need a good pair of walking shoes, which are also fashionable. I mean, aren’t these Gucci sneakers fabulous? They are comfortable too. Love them!

Affordable and classic IT bags are all the rage as we all scramble to update our wardrobes and get away from loungewear right now. These classic IT bags are perfect to wear now and forever.

Have you noticed chains everywhere? I will go deep into the chain trend later this month, but right now we all need to focus on this pair of chain detail booties. They are a fall bootie, and currently part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale which features both summer and new fall merchandise. I picked up a pair in black and they are super comfortable, and the chain detail is amazing! One thing you don’t see in the photo; they zip up in the back making these booties easy to get in and out of. Love that!

The perfect black top

casual summer street style san jose 2021

Wearing: black puff sleeve top (on major sale!) / sunglasses / white drop earrings / summer lipstick / summer nail polish / snake buckle belt / basket bag (IT bag under $500) / light wash jeans (similar here) / platform sneakers /

Ah! This black top has so much staying power! I originally purchased it in the summer for 2019 for the fall season. I wore it at fashion week, which you can see my outfit below from NYFW, I am in the green skirt, spinning. I also wore it during the fall season around town, as you can see an example in the long denim skirt. Last fall, I paired it with jeans as life was extremely casual last year. This year, I am pairing it with jeans so far, but I plan to wear this top with skirts as the season progresses. Love that!

Know what else I love? It’s on major sale right now! Plus, the puff sleeves are right on trend. Love that too!

I wore this black top the other day when I went to Santana Row with my Mom for lunch. We walked around, looked at make-up at Sephora, checked out all the cute new jewelry at Kendra Scott, and enjoyed lunch at Left Bank. I had the Vegan Cassoulet, which was delicious, and my Mom enjoyed the salmon. Yummy!

So, if you have been following along, you know I have been on a doctor-ordered diet. I have lost almost twenty pounds now, so these jeans are new! I wore them at Disneyland, and now I am wearing them often since they are one of three bottoms which fit me. These jeans are comfy, and very on trend for summer. Love! I also plan on getting this pair for the fall season. I love a darker wash in the fall.

If you are looking for a versatile top, which is not basic, this is the one! You can’t beat the sale price too. Love it!
