I realized today that most of my outfits are fancy and formal. I want a change of pace so, tonight, I tried something playful. I took casual clothes and dressed them up as fun as I could. Here's the result.
Oh, and I saw an ad in Glamour showing a woman wearing two different shades of lipstick. Its whimsy appealed to me, so tonight I wore fuscia surrounded by orange. What do you think? Would you do this?
the lipstick looks awesome, you totally rock it! and i love the leggings!ReplyDelete
You really look like you're having fun! I love the idea with using two different lipsticks. I occasionally will use a dark liptint (burt's bees tinted chapstick) on my top lip and just clear on my bottom.ReplyDelete
i would totally wear this! and i like the two shade lipstick trend a lot!ReplyDelete
This is a fun look Ally! I like the pink leggings, woo! The lipstick thing is interesting to me too, I've never tried it, but I'm not against doing so. It looks neat!ReplyDelete
I've done something similar with my lips before! I should try it again. It's fun to mix colors.ReplyDelete
My only suggestion would be to layer a long black spaghetti-strap top under that sheer top, as it's a bit see-thru. Having a black top on underneath will really bring out the pink/black-gray contrast!
P.S. Where'd you get the shoes? I MUST KNOW! :P

I got the cute black canvas wedges at Payless last year for about $20.Delete
Damn you have amazing arms- so sculpted! Love the lipstick trick and the tunic with leggings and that necklace- phenomenal!ReplyDelete
The necklace is actually two necklaces: one is an ordinary string of pearls and the second is a bunch of black feathers. I wanted volume and neither was enough alone. After experimenting, I saw they go well together.Delete
I love the bling! What a great idea to combine two very different necklaces to create one very striking accessory. So envious of your beautiful legs which are perfect for leggings.ReplyDelete
Thanks for both compliments, Lynne. I got the idea for combining the necklaces when I saw one in a store that looked very similar to these two combined. I realized I didn't have to buy that new one when I could create my own.Delete
You look super comfy casual ... we should be sipping coctails or wine on the deck gabbing over our latest find.ReplyDelete
Hugs my friend
Love the pink leggings. You always dress so feminine and lovely. I think I need to take some lessons from you!ReplyDelete
OHMYGOSH, PINK LEGGINGS. This is something that I do not have. Dying now.ReplyDelete

I LOVE the color of those leggings! I am also Loving the two tone lipstick. I recently bought a cover girl flipstick that has two different shades that complement each other for that two tone look. You look Fabulous!ReplyDelete
I have never seen the two-toning in lipstick! It's so much fun! Love that you combined orange and red! I totally also am in love with that necklace!ReplyDelete

Hi Shy B. The two tone lipstick is a fun trend although I'm still sporting my "nude" lip color.ReplyDelete
I'm new to your blog. Are you the lovely lady in the photo now or the handsome guy in the bio pic, or at times both?
Hi Agent! Welcome.Delete
I'm both. Dual sides of the same coin.
Hi there, thanks for stopping by..Thats so great that you have friends here...Have you ever visited the country?ReplyDelete
No, but it's likely I will. I find it appealing and am always looking for new travel adventures.Delete
i like the two lipstick idea, but the first thing i automatically do when i apply any lipstick is rub my lips together...so i know it would never last on me. it looks fabulous on you, though!ReplyDelete
Love this outfit on you. I normally am not up for crazy lipstick tricks but I actually really like it on you!ReplyDelete
This is a great more "casual" look! You still look very glamorous though, which I just love - being comfortable doesn't mean you have to give up any style!!ReplyDelete
