5 + 12 + 26
Premier Designs faux pearls - 2010 - free with purchase (similar)
Urban Outfitters two-finger ring - 2010 - gift (available)
Dark tights - no idea - no idea
Sephora jumbo lip pencil in color 411 (discontinued color, but looks similar to Fancy Red)
For the first week or so of this challenge, I was kicking myself for including my nude shoes because winter was coming and my stockingless legs were about to go into hiding. And then I saw fellow remixer A Fashionista Moment rock a dark tights + nude heels look and I knew I had to try it. I think the key to this look is the black skirt, which elongates the legs upwards to combat the nude shoe cutting off your leg line. My verdict - I love this. I'd like to try this with a patterned or textured tight next time.
Lip color experiment day four -- this is the same red pencil I used on day one, but without the pink on top. It's more an orange-toned red, and paired with a bunch of neutrals works well. I really liked this because a) it was easy to apply and b) it stayed on a long time, almost like a stain. I used plain cherry chapstick as a base and as moisturizer.
The simplicity does it. I mean, really, there are few outfits easier to put together than this one.
I forgot to put on earrings. A basic pearl stud would have been nice.
Have you tried the dark tights + light shoe combo? How do you work it?
