Bras. Let’s talk about them. Often they are ill-fitting, too small, too big, old, saggy, itchy or scratchy. I’ll be honest, I’ve had my fair share of struggles when it comes to my bust size and buying bras because I developed a little earlier than my friends and was on the larger cup size at a young age but still was fairly petite. And when you are short and small with a big bust, it can be a bit difficult to get dressed and feel comfortable. Does anyone else share in this issue?

 But now that I am in my 30s I have finally figured out what bras work for me and which ones don’t. Just to give you a little background on me…I work as a personal stylist and work with woman of all ages and body shapes so we talk about everything from clothing to bras to whatever else is on their mind, which has really helped me hone in on what women need. And, I’ve been featured in, as well as written a couple different magazine articles talking about this topic actually – dressing for your shape, which includes your bust size, and ultimately what it comes down to, is finding the right bra to wear under all the fabulous clothing that you hopefully will feel so good wearing! :)

 So, that’s where Soma Intimates comes in to play! My Mom bought me a Soma Intimates minimizer a while back and I was immediately hooked. It made wearing chunky sweaters, button down shirts and turtlenecks so much easier and more flattering. But I don’t always want to be wearing a minimizer – sometimes I want to wear a pretty bra with lace on it underneath my favorite tee or dress, so when Soma approached me to talk about bras and how important they are when dressing yourself, I jumped at the chance to be involved.

The brand is offering so many different options now – everything from lace to patterned t-shirt bras, age-defying and strapless bras. I decided to style their Enhancing Shape Bra, which is like a classic t-shirt bra.

Instead of just wearing a v-neck, I chose a type of clothing that a lot of women are nervous to wear, which is anything stripe, since they are afraid it will make them look wide. I figured, if I can show how to wear stripes with a good bra, than hopefully I can inspire other to do the same!

So, first off, let’s go back to the Soma Intimates Enhancing Shape Bra I am wearing underneath this striped dress. I love it because it’s super soft, comfortable and very supportive. It helps lift you in all the right places and doesn’t allow any part of your breast to bulge out, yet isn’t stifling or restrictive. Plus another perk is that the bra has built in top shaping technology that eliminates gaps between you and your bra. As most women get older, or if if they have a child, they experience loss of tissue at the top of the breast, but this Enhancing Shape Bra combats that problem which is why it’s age defying. Pretty awesome, right?

Ok, so…the reason I chose this striped dress is because it could potentially make me look a lot wider across the chest if I wasn’t wearing the right bra, but with this Soma Intimates Enhancing Shape Bra, I feel contained, perky and very confident. I am not one to show off my bust line, but I think it’s important for a woman’s chest area to look feminine, shapely and well proportioned, which can be an issue if placed in an ill-fitting bra. You don’t want to have boob muffin top side, bottom anything anywhere, you know?

Anyway, needless to say, I am big fan of Soma Intimates and have been wearing the brand for years. They offer a variations of bras in sizes starting at at 32A all the way up to 32G and have a great selection of underwear, shapewear as well as apparel, sleepwear and swimwear! I highly recommend you all going out and giving the brand a try!

How was everyone’s Easter weekend? Saturday, Casey and I went to brunch at Extra Virgin and since it was so nice out, I decided to pull out my white jeans and bright yellow blouse to celebrate the fact that it’s finally acting like spring. Afterwards we ran some errands and I swung into Nars to pick up some new makeup.

Sunday, we spent the day relaxing at home, enjoying some quiet time together and ate egg and cheese bagel sandwiches on the couch and watched Damages. Later on in the day, we met up with my good friend, Krystal, who just moved to the city over the weekend and helped christen her new apartment with a champagne toast. We rounded out the night with pizza and ice cream and watched reruns of Friends. Overall, it was a really great weekend. I hope yours was as well! xo

Christine-Cameron-MyStyle-Pill-Lunch Date6

Today’s post features a fairly simple look I wore out to lunch with my Dad the other day. I created this outfit around these leather pants, which are my absolute favorite (I scored them 40 percent off at Nordstrom over Christmas!) and paired them with a striped turtleneck from Forever 21, my Everlane navy leather loafers and a bright red lip, courtesy of L’Oreal Paris’ long lasting lip color in Infallible Red.

It was a typical Seattle spring day, so I wore a mid-weight light wool overcoat from Zara over the top of the outfit along with my J.Crew inifinty scarf, just in case it got a little chilly.

Vidal-Sassoon-Salonist-Christine-Cameron-My-Style-Pill3

All photos were taken by my lovely friend, Lacy, who patiently helped me document every single step of this process. 

Hey everyone! So, I’ve teamed up with Vidal Sassoon to take on the fun challenge of coloring my hair at home with their new Salonist hair color product. I chose Dark Red Violet 4/46 (eeek, talk about nervous!) but everything in the box provides professional tools (brush and a bowl) to achieve awesome results, so now you can color just like the pros!

The truth of the matter is, I’ve done at home color before and the results have left me with uneven color and eventually very dull looking hair. Unimpressive to say the least. So, over Christmas, I had it done professionally and was really happy with the outcome. It’s been about three months and my little brown roots are starting to show, so this project couldn’t have come at a better time!

My hair is naturally brown, so when it was colored a few months ago, I brightened it up a bit and went with a pretty purply-red. I loved it so much, that I decided to aim for a similar color this time around.

Something to remember when coloring your hair is, in order to achieve color that is full of depths and tones, it’s essential to treat roots and lengths separately since new hair growth and previously colored hair absorb color differently. Coloring also alters the pigment content, changing the hair’s surface structure and making it more porous. So since lengths have been colored up to 20x more than roots, the lengths require less dye.

One of the reasons I decided to give Salonist a try is because it features an innovative 2-step technique that leaves hair seamlessly blended, avoiding streaks and stripes. This was one of my main issues in the past when using at-home color kits. The two-step process brings you vibrant, multi-dimensional hair color with convenience, speed, and accuracy. So, with that said, here is a step-by-step of my experience with the product…

Vidal-Sassoon-Salonist-Christine-Cameron-My-Style-Pill6

1. First off, make sure to wear the gloves! Then empty tube 1 and bottle 1 together in the Salonist bowl and mix until smooth.

2. Next, use the Salonist brush to apply the color cream to your roots, starting with your hair’s natural part. Continue all the way down the back of your head. Brush the color cream onto your hairline. Part your hair again, ½ -inch below your natural part, and brush color cream onto the roots. Repeat this process as many times as needed to completely cover your roots. Use approximately ¾ of the color cream in the bowl.

Oh my gaaawd, I’m really doing this!

3. Add the VS Serum into the ¼ of color cream still left in the Salonist bowl and mix well.

4. Scoop the mixture out with your hands and blend it throughout the lengths of your hair. Massage the color in all over, even at your roots. Allow it to sit for 30 minutes.

5. Rinse out the color, and wash your hair with a color-safe shampoo. Then apply the included Salonist Color Preserving Conditioner and let it absorb for 2 minutes.

 A few more tips from the experts:

  • The baby hairs around your hairline are weaker and softer and therefore develop faster than the hair around the crown. If you want even hair color, start coloring hair at the crown and then work your way out. Your hairline and bangs should be last. Just remember that application is key, otherwise you’ll be left with patchy hair color.
  • Apply hair color like you’re unraveling or peeling an orange. Start by applying hair color at the crown and then take sections of hair and work clockwise. You’ll want to finish applying hair color around the nape and the hairline since those strands develop faster.
  • To avoid hair color staining your skin, apply some Vaseline around your hairline.

You can get your very own kit of Salonist at Amazon.com or other major mass retailers. Check out VidalSassoon.com for more info!

A few weeks ago, Casey and I had the absolute pleasure of shooting with our sweet and extremely talented friend, Tate Tullier and equally amazing wife, Sarah, who both kept us laughing yet perfectly styled the whole time, even though the wind was pretty brutal that day.

We all had so much fun as I am sure you can see in the photos below, so I’ll let the images do the talking, but if you are in need of a wonderful and inspired photographer, Tate does everything from portraits to weddings, so check him out here!

Long-Lasting-Red-Lipstick-Thumb

For a while now I have really been into red lipstick, but I always struggle with it when it comes to actually wearing it while eating. It’s always coming off on my food, water glass, napkin, you name it. So I decided to film a little video this week to test out my three favorite long lasting red lipsticks (all drugstore brands) to see whether or not they would stay on (or how well) throughout each meal. I wore a different one for breakfast, lunch and dinner and documented the experience – one in particular had impressive staying power!
