Addicted to Lipstick

Tuesday, August 26, 2014



Tee: c/o Style Lately
Cardigan: Cotton On (similar here)
Shorts: Forever 21
Heels: Go Jane (similar here)
Bag: Forever 21 (similar here)

There are some things I can't explain about my style. Including the reason I immediately gravitate towards dark colors once fall rolls around. As the weather cools down, my wardrobe loses almost all trace of color that was apparent during the summer. I'm no psychologist, but I'm sure my subconscious is telling me something. [Vive la Summer!]

Nonetheless, I still occasionally attempt to inject color into these monochrome outfits. This might also be an explanation for my excessive fall/winter lipstick collection. A bold red lip is the perfect way to add a pop of color to an otherwise dark outfit. It also tells others that you're not afraid to make a statement (in the classiest of ways). So, as the t-shirt says, I am indeed "addicted to lipstick" once the colder seasons reappear. What are your thoughts on the matter?

  2. It happens the same to me: I wear dark dresses in fall but I pop up my outfit with makeup. Red lipstick is always a great choice :)

  3. Lve your outfit, and the lipstick looks perfect on you! I just bought my first legit lipstick in a hot pink, but I'm not so sure it goes with me, maybe I should have tried red!

  5. Yay! We're twinsies! Love this look, Christina! I have the same problem as you with the colors toning down and becoming almost monochromatic. But it's makes the most stylish looks, and you look so chic as always!
