black and white pencil skirt, dots and bows

Photobucket

It's a bit more Autumnal today. I wore my favourite black and white houndstooth pencil skirt; it's made from silk linen and boned for the most perfect fit (and the most thorough wrinkling, but that's life!). I added my new black shiny belt, which can have different scarfs and such threaded through, and tied at the back – so I can add different colours. Handy. And I topped it off with my black and white polka dot scarf, secured with a vintage dress clip... and my red lipstick. I missed it these past few days, and it's always nice to come back. (And when will I decide on the colour for this room? I think I should just take those swatches down!)

Ugh honey, you are unbearably made for the 30's and 40's! I don't know if its the classic face, the bold red lips or the natural beauty...all I can say is all I can really do is just wish I could wear lipstick as you do.


P.S. Make a tutorial on the lips. Please!
