Crimson

I attempted to try the whole "crimson lip" thing and I think I still need to find that perfect shade of wine-tinted lipstick... will definitely keep looking.

Going to go grab lunch and iced coffee-- oh my lace-up Chloe wedge boots just came in and they're so beautiful. Will show them to you guys soon!

Wearing Vera Moda silk trousers, vintage shearling fur jacket, American Apparel mesh blouse, lace bra, Aldo platform pumps

KEREN said...

Why am I in love with this post? Oh, I dunno, it might be those AMAZING pants you're wearing. ♥

jamie clare said...

oh my god. if those are the taupe ones with the little heel/toe detail and the cream-colored laces, i'm GOING to have to hate you. i am so obsessed with those, it's taking all of my willpower to just not pay my rent for two months and buy them.

Tatiana Landim said...

i liked your lipstick, karla. and your nailpolish. they are (with the rest of your make up) the charm of your look!

THE UNIQORN said...

love the colour of your lipstick!
so sexy!!!

Toni said...

Beautiful lipstick. It really fits you.

Talisa said...

Amazing Outfit. Love the trousers. I´m really confused,is it day in the U:S? Because here in Europe it´s really late at night....:)

KARLA
GREAT LIPSTICK
I LOVE THIS CHANGE

FashionXK8 said...

yes, loving the all black. And that jacket is awesome!

Mary @ StyleFyles said...

I don't know, I actually like that shade of lipstick a lot. It's a bit darker than a lot of the crimson's I've seen, and that's a good thing. Slightly more elegant as opposed to flashy, and you really pull it off.

Victoria Hoffmann said...

omg! so good!

the crimson lip is lovely. I really like the cut of those pants. I'd love to try something like them, but have the feeling they just wouldn't flatter me

eirin said...

Crimson looks good! Red lipstick is my ultimate favourite colour. I've been wearing red for about 5 years now and I don't think that I'll ever get sick of it. It is such a classic and no matter your skin tone, there is a shade for everybody.

Have a lovely weekend!

XOXO

Those silk pants are so amazing. I'm a big fan of the loose pant look right now. So comfy and cozy! The crimson lip color is nice as well. I'm currently wearing something a little darker. Feeling very Fall-ish. :)

Hawa said...

dont find the shade really flattering for your skin tone...maybe try a a slightly lighter shade, plus make sure you use lip liner in the exact shade....as for brands i think nothing beats mac....they dont wear off and dont dry your lips either....i still think you have pulled it off well

Golden said...

stumbled on your blog...

wow i hope you have ppl in life who tell you the truth after reading these comments...your facial features are too harsh to pull off such stark shades. I love your very pronounced chin and nose but not with the added harshness of lip color.
