All Black & Oxblood


For the dark and stormy grey days in the middle of summer. It's just not fair but we can't let bad weather get in the way of making an all back statement. Mixed with a deep red, of course. This lipstick has become an obsession of mine. 

Then again, who doesn't love a pop of color with an all black ensemble. Any color will do! Bright, light, deep, sass. It's the best. 

This lip is from MAC. It's my first ever MAC purchase. Believe it, friends. This gal isn't making it up. My old co-workers would rave about specific lipstick colors and products. Majority of my makeup comes from Sephora. We all know MAC isn't one of their clients. My normal go to lipsticks are Nars and Rimmel. High end and low end, can't beat it. 

This summer, it's a goal of mine to try out different lipsticks and move away from liquid lips. Though, they're my favorite. This is a statement for the books! Liquid matte lips are everything! 


However, this lipstick is a total game changer. This lip stayed on through tea and lunch. I did reapply at after lunch though due to a lack of lip liner.

The lip is called Viva Glam. It brings me life.

On to gold accessories. You all know about my watch from past posts. My newest accessories are the little gold knuckle rings from a boutique in Kirkland. Serendipity Consignment was right across the street from Hector's, our brunch spot. Adding that it was on a hot beautiful summer day... this little spot has tons of great gently used clothing, shoes and accessories. It also sells new items too, like these rings.

Marc by Marc Jacobs // Earrings: JewelMint (old, similar) // Lipstick: MAC, Viva Glam 

Earrings are very old. Bought from JewelMint when they first came out. It's far from gone but there were some great pieces from that company once.

My last ring, the one in the photo below, is a family antique that my grandmother gave to me years ago. It's something that keeps my close to her and goes nicely with my new rings. Old and new!


What little boutique do you love?
