This post started off as an outfit post but became all about Le Lipstick!
The jeans are from ZARA and the reason why I’ve cut them off and left them frayed is:
1: because I think it looks cooler, natch..
2: because at my 159 cm jeans are ALWAYS too long for me and I’ve just given up on altering everything I buy. So do we write this off as nonchalant chic or just plain nonchalant? 🙂
The blushy lacey top is from Reiss…
and the shoes are Ted Baker. The heel is high enough so it doesn’t get classified as ”kitten” (which I hate) but it’s low enough to be an ok daytime shoe, wearability wise.
Before I let the lipstick talk take over this entire post – today’s impromptu outfit shoot took place en route to Dubai Marina Yacht club and the sunset light was oh-so-pretty!
I am used to the strong red lip look as I have worn it for a solid few years (it took some getting used to but now it’s one of my favourite way of spicing up an ensamble) and after having worn almost everything that there is to do in classic red (we’re talking Ruby Woo and Russian Red by MAC and all the other iconic shades) I decided that I was ready for something new.
Enter Giorgio Armani Rouge d’Armani lipstick in #401 – a lush orange shade of red.
I have read somewhere that the shade was made famous by songstress Rihanna. I’ve also read that it’s a great ”beginners shade” of orange and was guaranteed to suit almost all complexions – unsure if that’s entirely the case but compared to other orange tints I’ve tried (that looked like abstract art on my lips) this hue felt really flattering.
Have you attempted the orange lippy?
