My outfit and makeup matches!

So I wanted to spice up my eyes today with makeup. I was inspired by a look my friend did on me before.

I liked the colors but I wanted to switch them up a little bit. By accident the colors ended up matching my outfit for today.

Happy it is warming up! I was able to take pictures without freezing my butt off! Also my hair is growing! Sooner or later I will start keeping progress of my hair.

Pastel Lipstick

Last summer my make-up artist friend did my make-up and one of the looks she used lilac colored lipstick. I will admit I was scared on how it would make me look…I hate to say this but I thought I would of looked like one of those stereotypical pics of black people from back in the day. Surprisingly it looked nice in me.

The lipstick was MAC Viva Glam Nikki 2. I wanted to buy this lipstick but everytime I try to it’s sold out. So I founded another lilac lipstick from Lime Crime called D’Lilac.

Lilac isn’t the only color I would like to wear, Lime Crime Oh No she Didn’t and Keyshia Kaoir Pool Party are blues that I am looking forward to wearing. Plus blue is my favorite color!!!

Be bold and wear shades of lipstick that people don’t normally wear!

The Belted Shirt

At one point in time I hated belted shirts. I liked it at first when it was a big trend but over time I got annoyed seeing everyone with a belted shirt. When something is in and EVERYONE IS WEARING IT, I don’t like to wear it. Recently my love for belted shirts came back, here are my looks.

On a Cold Day….

WOOOOWWW IT IS COLD TODAY!!! I tried to take a pictureI was soooo cold my teeth were even cold! Did you guys ever see that meme where this weather guy is like “now Gucci Mane with the weather” and you see Gucci saying “BUURRR”. THAT WAS ME(laughs and giggles). Anyway got this sweater on Friday. Forever21 was having a really good sale and I got this sweater for like $7 and this really pretty summer dress for $5. I like this sweater because it is a little baggy, but a cute baggy. I can throw it with leggings and whatever and look cute. I also like the color, I am not really into neon but something about this made me take it. This sweater also goes with alot that I already have which is good, I hate buying something and it doesnt go with anything in my closet.

How to wear a Kimono Jacket

I love Asian culture and I love kimonos. They are so pretty and elegant and flowy and the floral print is gorgeous. I’m happy they incorporated them in fashion because we can wear them!!! I got one from forever21 yesterday and I love it! A few stores I found kimonos at were asos, zara and of course forever21. I know there are more places but those are just a few. I have many outfit ideas and I am going to share them with you just in case you want to wear one.
20140104-122351.jpg
Here is my kimono I bought(well someone bought it for me).
20140104-122341.jpg
Here is a leather bralette top from Express, crochet shorts from Express, floral garland I made, and earrings from forever21.20140104-122400.jpg

and my Jeffrey Campbells to go with that outfit. The Bohemian looks really nice with kimonos but if you don’t like the hippie style you can wear like a mini dress and some heels or wedges.20140104-122416.jpg

Mini Dress from Forever21

Jessica Simpson wedges

Or you can  wear a lingerie style dress, here is one from Zara.

You can even wear a lace dress, high-waist shorts, or jeans. Shoe wise you can do jeweled sandals or regular sandals, boots, heels or whatever you think will fit. Wear a statement necklace to bring it out more, especially if it has colors of the kimono. The only thing I think you should not do when wearing one is something that looks too busy, the main focus should be on the kimono.

Oh and jumpsuits look nice as well! Pair the outfit with some point-toe heels and dangling chandelier earrings and a cuff bracelet.

Here is a picture I got off a website of celebs wearing a kimono jacket.

Oh and they are wearable in all seasons, wear darker ones for fall/winter lighter ones for spring/summer. There is a black one I would like to buy for now until it gets warm.

IT’S 2014!!!

I hope you guys had a good New Years!!!! From those who arent from central PA in Harrisburg we have a strawberry drop(named for our strawberry square). I didn’t even get to go to the bars to get some drinks because my friend was being a fun snatcher! She would be mad if she seen this *laugh*. My outfit was cheap this year,besides the shoes. I had ordered a really sexy jumpsuit but it couldn’t fit but I did decide to keep it for when I lose weight(which probably will not be for another 100yrs). Not having too much money in my pocket I went to forever21 and bought one of their basic dresses. You can always
dress up a basic which I dresses up with a statement necklace, fun bunny ears (from f21), and my 6 inch glitter Steve Madden pumps. Here are the flicks!!!
