colored kisses.

i vow to wear color this year. and lots of it.
i stopped wearing lipstick years ago because my lips are always dry. plus i went thru an au-naturale phase in which i wore nude to sheer-colored glosses. but i wanted to give 2011 some oomph, and what better way than with color. i love m.a.c.'s recycling program. six containers = one free lipstick. did some recycling this weekend and came home with a red and a purple. free.
i like them so far.
and this tangerine tank has the perfect loose-ness and length for layering, along with my green DIY elbow-patch sweatshirt.

"dare you" and "up the amp"
(tangerine tatum tank, available @ oomph; pants, rampage; sweater, papaya; DIY elbow-patch sweatshirt)

  11. Hey doll!

    So, I think I'm gonna hop on the bandwagon with you and "try" to infuse more color into my wardrobe this year. I don't know if I'll get around to wearing tangerine but I love how you've rocked it!

  25. Your outfit is cute!
    I like colored lips, but I usually wear colorful eyeshadow and eye makeup, so I don't want to look like a clown.
    That makes sense, right?
    My eyes don't look like clown eyes because I do colored eye makeup tastefully, but if I paired colorful eye makeup with colorful lips, then I would look like Bozo.
    That probably still doesn't make sense.
    Oh, well.

  32. GO SEE BLACK SWAN! you won't regret it.

    I love your blog. so cute. i almost never wear makeup, maybe like 3 times a month. i want to most of the time, but i just don't think it looks good on me. I want to test out lipsticks too so this post is inspiring. Thanks.
