Read My Lips

Shirt: Thrifted, $3 // Jeans: Urban, $30 // Shoes: Madden Girl, thrifted, $1.50 // Headband: Urban, $5

I love the idea of letting lipstick do all the talking for an outfit (these pictures don't adequately capture the brightness of this fuchsia shade). Today's mostly black ensemble provided the perfect foundation to do just that. Sometimes simple is superior.


Also, I get flak sometimes for not smiling more, so here you go. Squinty eyes and all.

Gorgeous outfit and fantastic lipstick! What color is that, by the way?

You always inspire me to thrift more, and this post is no exception. :)

Charmalade said...

Oh, PLEASE. That smile is gorge! Yes, as in the emphasized version of "gorgeous," not that your smile is indicative of a gorge. Hm. Subtlety, thy name is me.

But I love letting the lipstick do all the talking in what would otherwise be a simple outfit. :)
