RED

December 28, 2012

wearing: Sound & Matter leather moto jacket c/o PacSun, thrifted Gap striped long sleeves, striped H&M tank dress, Zara metallic leather booties, thrifted Levis belt

There's something so beautiful about a red lip. Or, more so, the perfect red lip. Since a nice deep red has become my go-to in the last few weeks, it only seemed appropriate, if not necessary, that I try to add more shades into my little family. After spending a good hour or so with a dear friend trying to find the right shade, I had a thought. Finding the perfect color for your lips is just as hard as finding the right someone to hold hands with. Neither of the two comes easy to you (and if it does, I hate you already), it's only through trials and tribulations, some disappointments and a couple of false alarms, that you come out looking through rose-colored glasses in the end. I think it's time that I stop watching and re-watching Sex and the City. Sorry Carrie, it's not you, it's me! At least it's not on a post-it?

P.S. Sorry for the absence, after finals ended and final grades came up, I've been in a self-induced coma trying to forget it all. On top of that, I have misplaced my camera charger, so there's that. Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and here's to a fantastic new years! Thank you for your support and love! Xo
