Keep it bright







Outfit Details:
Elizabeth and James Lafayette sunglasses
vintage coat, bought at Manhattan Vintage
Nanette Lepore boots c/o Cole Haan
Cole Haan Anne Street Satchel - c/o Cole Haan
MAC Candy Yum Yum lipstick (it looks a little darker due to the lipliner)


Seems as though it's all about the brights, this week. I actually was wearing an all black outfit underneath the coat, which is very strange for me, despite the fact that I live in New York City. With three cats and a fluffy white dog, black fabric is both a magnet and a magnifying glass for stray hairs. Luckily, I love just about every other color - and I always carry a lint roller. But even on that rare occasion that I went for head to toe black, I ended up pairing it with a super bright coat, lipstick, and bag. What can I say? I like to keep it bright.

  12. I'm totally in love with that coat! I'm a sucker for both plaid and vintage, so it's right up my alley. The lipstick looks fab too. Love how you've toned down Candy Yum Yum with some lipliner- looks more wearable and flattering this way :)

  15. A lovely colourful outfit - love that bag. I remember the first time I went to my friend's house wearing all black. She had 3 dogs and 3 cats. My outfit was almost white when I came out of her house xx

  21. I sort of have an unnatural obsession with handbags, so naturally I'm drooling over that satchel. Beautiful!

  22. The MA at the MAC store showed me Candy Yum Yum, but I was afraid it was just a little too bright. But I love it with that liner! Which one did you use?

    1. I used a lipliner from Make Up For Ever (#16c) but if you want something close to this color, try MAC Girl About Town. The lipstick is more of a fuchsia and less of a shocking pink.

  24. Your photos and make up are always flawless! I went to an event for LA Fashion week last night and attempted cat eye make up like you often master...it didn't come out so great lol. You should def do a tutorial for us! I know I'm not alone.
