Ulta Lip Tint in Wine
This has got to be one of the most comfortable work outfits I've ever put together. Long sweatery dress/shirt and trousers. I felt like I should be walking around the market in Carrie and friends' Abu Dhabi. OK, so that's a bit overboard, but I did really like this outfit, and it was perfect for a low-key day in the office checking things off my to-do list.
How is it that all but one of the lipcolors I've worn so far is discontinued, and that one that is still made isn't available online? Either I'm really behind on the times or I'm a lipstick killer. Almost works in exact reverse: I tried Cover Girl Outlast lipstain a while back and it didn't work well for me, and now it's a crazy bestseller. As a favor to my readers, let me know what your favorite lipcolor is and I'll try to stay away.
Here is what it looks like. Obviously goes on a lot sheerer than it looks in the tube.
Nixing the proportions rule (volume + fit = balance). In this case, nearly every item had a looseness to it--the cardigan was left open and the dress and trouser legs fell nicely. The belt was the tie that binds, though. Without it this outfit would have been a flop. Also on the plus side--it was nice enough today to wear open-toed shoes! Got to get them in before the rain comes back tomorrow. Northern California winters are so baffling.
These pics. My loving baby brother, who shoots weddings and events in his spare time, sent me a nice list of suggestions to improve my photos. I've been trying to pick his brain since I got my camera but it's hard since we live 2,000 miles apart. Thing is, even reading his suggestions, I have no idea how to do any of those things! And then after I learn I have to teach K. This whole photo thing is definitely a work in progress. (For the record, today's pics were taken alone with a timer. And music, of course.)
Do you ever buck the proportions rule? What is your favorite way to do so?
