Nice Things In Une..


I am a firm believer that you can find nice things in the most unexpected places, if you look hard enough.  Case in point – J.C. Penney.  Now, I’m not saying this as a dig on J.C. Penney.  When I was much younger, J.C. Penney was my go to place for shopping.  It just seemed […]

Neutral Territory:..


Every girl needs a good neutral lipstick.  Bright reds and deep plums are fun for creating drama and impact, but not necessarily appropriate for everyday (Sorry, but it’s true).  A few months back I picked up a tube of MAC Patisserie and it’s the perfect neutral, which will complement a wide range of skin tones.  […]

Beauty Review: May..


I’ll be the first to admit that when BB creams first hit the market I felt they were a bunch of hype – how were they really any different from liquid foundation?  But when a makeup artist recommends them, you go with it.  Clearly, a professional makeup artist has more knowledge and experience with makeup […]

Detroit’s Ci..


Believe it or not, the Holidays are right around the corner.  I’m pretty sure we’re all familiar with Black Friday, where big box stores open at the wee hours of the morning on Friday (some, now on Thanksgiving) with door busting, deep discount prices to clear out their excess inventory to make way for new […]

The Streets Are Ta..


A few weeks ago I was in downtown Detroit for an event.  One thing I love to do when I’m out and about is just walk around and explore.  What did I find?  Some really great street art – some commissioned, I’m sure.  Some, of the street art was more spontaneous.  All of it equally […]

Woodhouse Day Spa ..


After being closed for many months due to renovations, Woodhouse Day Spa in Detroit has finally reopened.  I went to Woodhouse a few years ago for a massage and it was very relaxing, the service was amazing and ambiance was great.  After the renovations, it’s even better.  Woodhouse Day Spa is located at 1447 Woodward, […]

Motown The Musical..


Quick Note: As you can see from the new tagline, Detroit Style Review has expanded its focus to not only encompass fashion and beauty, but lifestyle and art as well.  Hence, today’s post. If you follow Detroit Style Review on Instagram, you know that I’m a huge fan of musicals.  When I heard about Motown […]

Q&A With M.A...


Last week I had a chance to attend a M.A.C Cosmetics Master Class , the Art of Contouring, taught by M.A.C Senior Makeup Artist Gina Bettelli, who was in town fresh off Paris Fashion Week.  Afterwards, I was able to catch up with Gina for a few questions on makeup tips and tricks: Q: What […]

October 2014 Book ..


As a blogger and budding entrepreneur with DSR Apparel, I love reading about fashion start ups.  That’s why when I heard about Wild Company, I had to get it.  Wild Company is the untold story of Banana Republic as told by the founders Mel and Patricia Ziegler.  It’s also this month’s book club pick of […]
