La Belle et la It Girl

Who needs friends when you can have shoes?

Cherry lipstick

Dress: Oasis Peacoat: JC Shoes: Zara Bag, scarf and headband: H&M Bracelet and ring: Bijou Brigitte Lipstick: M.A.C

Some girls might like safe and innocent lipgloss, but I prefer no nonsence matte dark lipstick. The only problem is that it makes me look extremely pale, but I guess that’s no biggie when it’s winter anyways.

What I love about this dress, and simple shift dresses in general, is that you just can’t overaccessorize them. As much as I love it worn with just a string of pearls and black pumps, I needed to try something different today, so I rocked it up with funky jewelery and a feathered headband, as well as a fuchsia bag for a splash of colour. As far as outerwear goes, I realise it would have looked better with a longer coat, but somehow I did not think of it there and then. I always find things I could improve about my outfit after I have taken the pictures.

  1. I’m very much a lip gloss girl! But you look amazing in that lippy. And I think it looks even better because you’re pale.

    I adore your shoes and headband!

  4. Lizzie: I do love lipgloss in the summer, when I have a little colour, the same goes for natural looking make up in general. As for the lipstick, YSL inspired me to try out some über-gothy lippy.
    cherrytrees and melodies: Thanks! I was stupid enough to buy them in two different sizes at first, and only noticed it after wearing them once. Luckily, I was able to change them.
    cammila: Thanks so much! Can you believe the headband is from H&M? =P
