Sweater Weather

It's officially SWEATER WEATHER and while I have claimed that put me in a cold place and I am not a happy trooper but seasons come and go and the silver lining is that I am finally able to wear all my knits which have been in storage for quite some time now...I've no control over the climate and weather but I do have control on how to dress for it and this outfit is something I would call a "transitional outfit" as it is a balance and union of two seasons: the knit sweater signifying my welcoming of the rainy/ monsoon season and the pencil skirt with a very high slit as the somewhat summer vibe of the outfit. What can I do? I am not ready to give up the sun yet. I do have to give myself props since this is one of the most comfortable outfits I have ever worn and add to that the fact that I was carrying a very small bag (a rare thing that happens) and kitten heels which are flats + heels combined, which for me is kind of the best of both worlds combined.

I like the color red because it is elegant, classic and it brings out my very Asian features which I have a love-hate relationship with. Everyone commented on how a red was such a great color for me to wear and how it was refreshing especially with my aura... I don't quite understand it really but I reckon I have a fiery and warm personality which is in essence, the reason why turquoise jewelry does not look good on me unless there is amber or a touch of something earthy. Of course since I am OCPD, this was the perfect time to bring out the red lipstick and look like a covered up vamp-vixen. I absolutely love the incongruity of this look and how somehow I was still able to pull it off. Makeup and beauty products are something that I try to- as much as possible- integrate in my look. Actually, how my face is made up is in my opinion something I will not overlook... I consider it a part of my outfit which is why I try to make it consistent with my outfit for the day. I guess I just find comfort in making everything consistent- overall...which trust me...is not a bad thing at all.

A lot of people always ask me about my makeup, so for all you beauty and makeup junkies, I was able to achieve this red lip by layering MAC Viva Glam I over NYX Femme Lipstick and sealing it with Lime Crime Suede-Berry which I got from Lannel Boutique.
