60s Knit

Inspired by Free People and stuck in 60s mod, voilà! But who can forget iconic Twiggy and her spider lashes? Sure, I’ll never be as pretty as her, but she is such an inspiration that the least I can do is imitation. So a couple layers of mascara later….

As a sign of appreciation and respect, we wear these red poppies. Canada wouldn’t be as it is today if it wasn’t for their brave hearts.DSC03660DSC03673Back to a lighter note, I thrifted this ‘made in Italy‘ sweater for $24! How crazy of a steal is that? It is a size too big, but the oversize fit just adds to the ‘cozy factor’. And if that’s not enough knit, why not throw in these thigh-high socks.

Though the softness of all these knits make me appear friendly and in all honesty, I’m not the friendliest. So as to keep my guard up, perhaps a spiked, statement necklace and stack of geometric earrings will help.DSC03669 DSC036791) Sweater: Thrifted (similar here) | 2) Corduroy Shorts: American Apparel | 3) Tights: Claire’s (similar here) | 4) Thigh-Highs: Free People (Gifted) | 5) Oxfords: Arnold Churgin (similar here) | 6) Necklace: Local Store in Granville St. Vancouver (similar here) | 7) Earrings: F21 & DIY

Bright Hue

This morning, I made the mandatory visit to Sephora to receive my yearly, free gift. In order to do so, I must purchase an item and since I’ve been wanting to try an orange lipstick, I braved ahead to finally do it. There were so many choices but I was particularly captured by none other than Marc Jacobs, especially after seeing the newly released line of lipsticks that looked like crayons. Not only was the packaging adorable, the bright hue of Crush perfectly matched my unexpected style. I tried it on and fell in love!

The consistency of the lipstick is smooth and hydrating and the matte finish is perfect for its vibrancy.  Aside from this, it is ‘kiss-proof’, leaving no stain in my glass cup. It won’t be a surprise if I come back to purchase another lipstick from this collection!

I did receive my free gift at the checkout and an additional freebie, a DKNY perfume. I was very impressed with the free gift: a MAKE UP FOR EVER lipstick and mascara, the mascara containing a generous amount!  image

I did not bother removing the lipstick after trying it on and now, I’m probably blinding some of the customers’ eyes while I work.
