Blazer: Next (Sale- available on this page or in Clearance stores)
Dress: ASOS (Link!)
Shoes: Newlook (Lots of colours available here)
Necklace: Primark
Lipstick: Nars 'Red Lizard' (I got mine from Space NK, but here is their website)

This dress started this morning in it's packaging ready to be returned to ASOS. When I first tried it on I initially thought 'shapeless, stretchy and maternity-like'. It stayed in the packet for a few days, but I woke up this morning and felt a desire to wear it. So it was re-ripped open.

Today was also a really red lipstick day. I was feeling like I wanted something a little extra for today, I'm feeling rather blah, and have been having problems with my feet, so I thought, well, if I can't wear fun shoes I'll wear a fun lipstick.

I don't know if any other blonde-haired girls can relate, but I've always struggled to find a suitable red lipstick. I had always reserved reds for brunettes or dark hair, but well, I think it's just because I have never found the right one. Personally, while I think dark haired girls can just about carry off any tone of red (depending on skin colour etc) I think that blondes really have to search for the perfect one. I believe that you'll probably have to splash out a little more to find something just right. Mine is Red Lizard by Nars, it's not too orange, and has a slight deepness to it that I believe suits me better.

So, what I want to ask you girlies is, do you have any red, or even just a bright, lipstick recommendation? What is your favourite in your face shade to wear?


  1. Love the lipstick on you! The darker shade really suits you. Love the outfit as well, the fairly simple look with the added benefit of a neon necklace and printed item looks great!
