When I have the choice, I pick necklaces, especially if they are shiny. Bold silver or gold, something that catches the light and your eye… that's my jam. However, when my mom found some of my dad's old ascots, I have been jonesing for a way to incorporate them into an outfit. We all know I love pattern mixing, and when I saw these two next to one another I found it to be a match made in heaven. If I can't have shiny objects near my face, how about a crazy lip color? Inspired by Jessica Alba at the Golden Globes, I recently purchased this lipstick and think it's a fun hue (but more orange than NARS Heat Wave and far more long lasting!).
