To brighten up: bold lipstick, a denim shirt & a mix of colours

Monday, August 22, 2011


Miss Selfridge denim shirt
Lovelygirl pleated skirt
Zara Heels
Sportsgirl belt
MAC 'Girl about town' lipstick

Hi all!  Thanks again to all the sweet comments, it really has made my day. I've been reading alot of comments and visiting everyone's blog. There is great fashion inspiration out there!!

I've been wearing alot of black outfits lately, so I decided to go back to colour today. As a parting gift, one of my close co-workers gave me a new lipstick (yessss!!) to add to my collection. It was a MAC 'Girl about town' shade - its a strong hot pink colour. It was perfect for my skin tone. 

I now have approximately 34 lipsticks sitting on my shelf! If I could get a job using lipsticks to make or break outfits (sort of like a stylist I guess?) I would be so happy, but unfortunately I'm jobless right now.

Do you guys also have a dream job you want?

For my job break, I think I might just blog (alot) and do many errands, like my tax return, getting my green P's, or facebook, or twitter...
And, also, I did a special photo shoot this weekend with a fellow a blogger/photographer Nusardel Oshana, I will post these photos on my next post. For now: a preview!


xx Natalie

The skirt is so gorgeous, and it looks amazing with those shoes!

Would it be okay If I featured you on a post about diy fashion bloggers- about your pencil skirt in the last post?

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and following, but sadly Blogger isn't registering you on my dashboard :( I love how you put colours together, it's so adventurous, something I have yet to learn. And yes! I'd love to be a fashion editor, but your job sounds so cool.

Hayley said...

You would suit working at the MAC make-up counter so well....I always need help choosing lipsticks as I am just beginning to wear them and it is really hard to get some good assistance!

I love this post, the outfit is gorgeous, lovely colour-blocking without being over-powering. That skirt is to die for!!

As for my dream job I would love to be a stylist for a fashion magazine or house, even a fashion buyer would be awesome. Actually, anything to do with fashion (that earns me a nice pay) would be a dream!
