Bright green puff-sleeved scoop neck sweater from Mossimo ($10 folks!), black stretch poplin trousers from Caslon, leopard peeptoe heels from BCBGirls, silver hoops and cuff. Can't wait to wear this top with a denim pencil skirt that is en route to me (thank you so much Fashion and Beauty Bargain Queens! Love you!).

Hair was washed and conditioned this morning, some Jonathan Silky Dirt added while damp and dried straight with a round brush and smoothed out with a curling iron quickly run through the strands, flipping the bottom. Looked super cool until I went outside and the humidity made me look like a Ramone again. I need to remember to do wavy/curly unless it's super arid out now that I have dark hair.

Makeup is L'Oreal True Match concealer in W4-5, philosophy's The Supernatural in Beige, no blush, Revlon ColorStay shadow quad in Neutral Khakis – the ivory in the inner corners and on lid. Lashes curled, two coats of DiorShow in black and a decently thick line of Maybelline UltraLiner in black on top lash line. On lips is Revlon ColorStay lipcolor in Burgundy.

Yeah, me and red lips are not a good combo. I felt very retro and sassy this morning when sauntering to my car. Got to work, reading documents and emails and I look down and there is red all over my desk. Look at my hands, it's on my hands. When I read, I often put my hands on my face/lips I guess and ended up smearing (luckily none on teeth or face, but just everywhere else). I have switched to Body Shop's Sheer Lipcolor in Sheer Strawberry, applying that over the leftover dark red lipcolor (this stuff REALLY is colorfast… when not rubbed around). Still a sassy combo…

    I agree with everyone; the red lip and green shirt look smashing. Your eyes and skin really pop!

    Oh I bought that stuff after you first reviewed it. Amazing how it does get all over, but your lips still look perfectly applied. I also don’t get it on my teeth, but it makes me realize I chew on the end of pens when stressed. But you look gorgeous as always

    That’s a beautiful shade of green, and it really suits you. It’s awesome with the red lips!

    Hi, have been reading your blog for some time, but first time commenting, ‘cos I just LOVE the look! The red lips really suit you 🙂

    Stick with the red lips, Allie. You look amazing.

    The red lips look great. I’m surprised you had that problem with Colorstay. It’s the only lipstick that stays in place for me. I have the Red Velvet shade but really need something more blue based.

    The red lips on you ROCK—you look so lovely!

    Oh, honey, red lips and you ARE a good combo! You look SMASHING! (I know red lips are a pain to keep up all day, though…just remember to keep your hands away from your face! LOL!)
