LBD & RL

Monday, August 6, 2012 162 0

Dress: H&M. Lipstick: MAC in MAC Red. Handbag: Balenciaga City. Shoes: Manolo Blahnik. Belt: H&M. Ring: BCBG. Sunglasses: Chanel.

 

A Little Black Dress & Red Lipstick. . . two simple elements for an easy, pulled together look.  If you don’t own both of these items, get yourself to the mall asap.  (Shhh, don’t tell but I bought my first ever red lipstick last week.  I don’t know what took me so long.  Thank you to the wonderful woman at the MAC counter who helped me select this perfect shade.)

    Jenny! Thanks so much for the comment on my “unbirthday cake” post! Sometimes you have to make wishes “just because.” I LOVE your dress and lipstick. I actually have the same shade and I adore it. Did you know that MAC lets you recycle your old containers? For 6 empty mac containers you can get a free lipstick, so save that one when you are done with it! Oh and I just bought my first black dress, arent you proud? Its Laundry by Shelli Segal and I happened upon it at goodwill for 4 dollars… at the tailor getting alterations as we speak! I really hope you are doing well and let me know whenever you happen to be doing a closet clense : ) I love your taste level in fashion!

      Thank you so much Nico! Yes, that recycling program is the BEST! Every company should do that!! Ha ha, cannot wait to see you in your new black dress!! I can’t believe you found a Laundry dress for $4. . .that’s crazy!!!

    I don’t own a red lipstick either!! I always tell myself I could never put it off but I just may have to reconsider. Looks fantastic on you – and love the detail on this dress!

      I always thought I couldn’t pull it off either and finally decided it was in my head. I think the trick is to have confidence, and anyone can rock red lips! Thanks Sarah!

    I am so in love with your dress and quite envious too as we do not have an H&M in town. You’ve styled it perfectly too with the hairband and minimal accessorizing.

    Jenny you look so beautiful here! I can’t believe this is your first tube of red lipstick! I might have to try that same shade! The shoulders in the dress are so great! Sometimes H&M really knocks it out of the park. Oh…. and your hair. LOVE IT!

    What a great find at H&M. That store overwhelms me…too much clothing and you have to dig to find decent quality.

    You look great!

    I am the same about red lipstick. I have a tube but never use it because I feel like a clown when I do wear it. it suits you.
