New York Red

Not a very interesting outfit because once again I've just been revising (eight days to go!). I did however wear a spot of red lipstick - Chanel's 'New York Red' (I would recommend their lipsticks because they have got serious staying power), so I thought I may as well feature it on here because I do really like it, but at the same time don't really suit it (hence the reason why it doesn't get worn very often).

I do however love how lipstick looks on black and white photographs - nice and dark!

I seem to have got myself addicted to Vitamin water - that was the second one of the day and it's an expensive habit. It's lovely! I did start off taking the outfit pics in my boyfriend's overgrown back garden but for some reason I just looked really lost and confused in all of them and he was getting impatient so in the end a quick snap in H&M changing rooms had to suffice (plus a cropped garden pic so I could feature the shoes).

Bed time for me - getting an early night for once. Hope everyone is having a lovely week!

  2. Haha, the overgrown grass is just like in my BF's backyard. And I don't know what you're talking about with the red lipstick! It suits you perfectly fine! Red lipstick looks good on just about everyone, in my opinion. I always wear it when I'm feeling fugly and I need a little pick-me-up.

  22. Yes, the lipstick is very nice. my mom has it but I steal it from her sometimes. I love that belt and that blazer. I saw one that was almost the same at Maje.

    I can't wait to see your cropped top! I'm sure it would look great on you, you've got the body for it =)
    Dresses and skirts are so amazing! I agree, they are so much more comfortable. And much cuter!

  35. OOooo Vitamin Water. Have you had the pink one? I was absolutely zinging when I finished it!

    I spot a completely gorgeous studded belt on you. And your purple shoes are so cute. The lady at the vintage shop did mention her husband built the extension of their living room for her shop! What a sweetie, right? I'm pretty sure my boy wouldn't be able to take having his living room made into a shop!
