Jill & Eileen

Jill & Eileen


Jill and Eileen found each other in 2008 when they became cubicle neighbors in the marketing department of a Boston-area company. Over the years, their shared obsession with fashion became a daily discussion. Their co-workers referred to them as "the stylish ones" in the office.

After six years of friendship, fashion and fun, the idea for A Stylish Pair blog was born over some maki rolls and a couple of bottles of Sapporro. Jill and Eileen wanted to chronicle their daily outfits, share office and casual dress inspiration with other women and offer access to tips, new products and sales for their fashion-loving friends.

What does A Stylish Pair mean? The name refers to Jill and Eileen, who are happily committed to their corporate jobs by day. As part time bloggers, they post photos and write about ideas and trends by night. The name also describes the things they crave, wear and write about - a stylish pair of jeans, a stylish pair of shoes, a stylish pair of sunglasses - you get the point. Enjoy!

Check out this pretty palette.  These are my every-day, go-to shadows.  I love to use highly pigmented eye color with a good dose of shine, never matte.  These Urban Decay eyeshadows are great.  I use the peacock blue and gunmetal colors as a liner.  Simply wet an eyeliner brush - I use the Bobbi Brown one pictured - drag the edge of it through the shadow a few times and hold the bristles horizontally as you glide the color onto your upper lash line.

Fun facts:

1) The design of these little round shells is inspired by old New York City subway tokens.  LOVE!

2)  No Parabens, Sulfates or Phthalates.

3) You can pop them right out of their shells and drop into your own custom palette.  No more fumbling through your makeup bag.  Urban Decay Build Your Own Palette, featuring "Melt," an exclusive metallic peach. ON SALE!
