All This Bad Blood

Tank: AE   Hat: JcPenney   Bag: Rue 21   Loafers: Target
You know how you've found a good item for your closet?
Once you've set eyes on said item and try it on, you put it back on the shelf and walk away.
Then, as you're lying in bed later that night, and visions of it float in front of your shut eyes, you'll know you've found something worth spending your money on.

It's always those "haunting" pieces that get the best of me. Luckily, instead of a thrift store find (which increases the likelihood of not finding it again), it was the leopard print loafers you see above. I wasn't sure I could pull off this style of shoe, but as I thought more about it later that night, I realized how perfectly they'd meld into my new style of black, white, and minimalist chic-rocker wardrobe.

However, while my closet has become a boring black and white tunnel, my lipstick has become as colorful as my high school self! For today's post, I tried Milani's Sangria shade, which based on what I've researched, is a good dupe for MAC's Rebel. I'd have to say, I really like this rich, fuschia shade and how the color lasts for a long day of errands, which included drinking multiple cups of coffee.

Anyway, I was lucky enough to snag these photos before the snow hit, so you get one more post featuring our lovely (but long gone) fall weather.

I just love you with floppy hats - you wear them so well! Also liking the leopard flats - I have a pair myself and find myself wearing them non-stop!

Have a great day,

P.S.: Thanks for leaving such nice comment on my last post!

You really have been rocking the lipsticks lately! You can really pull off the different colors and this shades really suit you. (and I say this about purply lipstick never - you're apperently the one person on earth that it looks really good on!). The leopard loafers are really cute as well, everything goes with black jeans! The whole black/white wardrobe really has been working for you as well, these black jeans make your legs look sooooo long.

Linda! I love everything about this! Can't believe you thrifted those loafers. I have a thing at a park tomorrow and I just might steal all or parts of this look, haha. I'll be sure to credit you. :)

You can never go wrong with stripes, one of my wardrobe staples! :)

I know what you mean about those purchases you just can't get out of your head too - a sign of a good buy if you rush back the next day for it! :)

Ouuu, this outfit is minimalist perfection! I love the black and white and the classic stripes mixed with leopard print, which are a nice pop of fun. And you know I'm a sucker for a floppy hat! I've been on the hunt for one like yours, one day...

For some stupid reason blogger didn't show me your blog's feeds. I'm quite pissed off now!!! Happy to see you're actually alive and kicking :D I'll be stalking you again, hope blogger doesn't screw up again >.<

Maiken said...

haha, I actually wrote you about the same thing Keit just mentioned but I did it a long time ago :) anyway, yesterday your posts started arriving again. and long time no see!! I haven't heard from you for too long already!! but this outfit of yours is something I tend to wear when I'm not in the mood of creating something more special (which is pretty much all the time, haha). I like those simple and comfy looks and you can always spice things up by using some patterns, statement jewellery etc!

Maiken,
Part of me
