Violent Lips is a company that makes these neat/potentially creepy/potentially stunning lip appliqués (they do some for eyes too, now, evidently). I saw these a few years back but somehow didn’t have that feeling like I needed to play with them until now.*
*I picked mine up for a decent price on allcosmeticswholesale
Umm, houndstooth, cheetah, leopard, polka dots?….yes, yes, yes, yes.
Clearly I needed some advanced lip decor options. Getting so many strange and wonderful ideas just looking at them.
So, that’s going to be happening. Stay tuned.
I recently got this pendant hanger, which allows one to hang any pendant from any chain (within the size range of the hanger). How clever is this? It’s shaped like a twisted eternity symbol and can be easily attached and removed. This pendant is a random one with a medieval look, and my favorite pairing with the pearls so far. This pairing would be at home with a much more formal look, is one thing I like about it, making a nice contrast with a casual look.
Love me a bit of houndstooth, love me a bit of python.
This creamy python print behaves effectively as a nude on me (which comes across better at a distance, or out of focus), just with a bit more interest. This 3″ height is quite friendly, too, I find, without looking kittenish.*
*Not that there is anything wrong with looking kittenish, but it is a different thing entirely.
Zara wool houndstooth blazer (thrifted), Express jeans, Pearl Paradise necklace (18″ 8mm strand), J Crew vintage v-neck tee, Nickels python pumps (thrifted), Mulberry Roxanne bag (thrifted). On the lips: Lipstick Queen lipstick in Jean Queen. Also wearing a Japonesque Color blush I’m liking a lot, and will mention properly soon.
