This is my first foray into dark plum lip territory. I typically gravitate towards a nude glossy lip, a soft coral palette or my all-time fave matte red pout. But to put the final touch to this head-to-toe burgundy look I thought I’d take the plunge and go vampy. I still backed up a bit though by adding a touch of vibrant pink for that ombre lipstick effect (a first as well).
The cropped leather jacket is a personal fave. It’s so incredibly versatile. I don’t typically show too much skin so when my midriff is showing I’ll balance it out with pants or a floor-length skirt (like here or here). I rocked this fun cropped leather jacket with high-waist Dolce & Gabbana riding pants during fashion week a few seasons ago (you can catch a glimpse of the overall effect in Cosmopolitan UK, Fashionista and Japan’s Fashion Latte).
Funny enough, I recently stumbled upon this fabulous pair of vintage leather shorts that are the perfect match for my beloved jacket and literally within days I found the perfectly color-coordinated sunnies and platform stilettos (also featured here). Freaky! The suede and bakelite clutch is a vintage find that’s been lying in my closet for so long, I’d totally forgotten about it…
