OOTD - Coral & Navy
Cardigan* - Shoppalu // Skirt - H&M // Bag - ASOS // Collar - Romwe // Shoes - Next // Bracelets - Primark // Headband(s) - BHS/eBay // Ring - Welsh Gift Shop
Wearing my first ever vintage piece, this cute navy cardigan that Shoppalu kindly sent me. I never thought I'd be able to wear vintage, but this "oversized" cardigan fits perfectly, maybe a little short in the sleeves, but I have long arms anyway! I really like the length on me, it sits perfectly at my waist, with cute flower detail (not embroidered, but knitted into the design, with eyelash yarn I think!). Everything else is old, that's if you count vintage as new!
Cut my fringe a little short (& wonky!), but I think I might actually like it a bit more, you can see my eyes better. Wearing lipstick for the first time too, after seeing Mac Viva Glam Nicki on Caroline, I just had to try it, even though I normally only use liptints as I hate the feeling of something on my lips. I applied it pretty lightly, with a brush, as it is pretty bright, plus my lipstick application sucks haha. I don't have much basis for comparison, but I didn't find it unbearable to wear, it is a bit drying though, I have dry lips anyway so used a balm underneath first. The colour is lovely though, a warm toned bright pink, sort of corally, but more pink. I'm not a fan of cool toned colours, makeup wise on me, even though I have blue eyes & blue veins which apparently means I should suit them..?
I'll stop chattering on now..
