Cargo Workshirt + Leopard


I feel like the color of these wedges isn't one that most people usually think of when purchasing booties.  I've been surprisingly pleased with them over the last year though.  I actually had my eyes on these booties the other day, until I realized that I already have extremely similar ones...but they're on crazy sale and it's such a good deal! I might purchase them in a different color since I already have some green suede booties--it's just too good of a deal to pass up.
I also got a few questions over on my Instagram account about this lip color.  It has become one of my favorites after recently purchasing it.  It's Kat Von D's everlasting liquid lipstick in the color ' vampira'.  It's best to line your lips first {I use this MAC liner}, and then use a lip brush to apply the liquid lipstick since the applicator isn't really practical for a precise line.  However, the color goes on smoothly and it provides a matte finish.  I've been looking for a deep red color like this for SO long, and I was so happy when I stumbled upon this ' vampira' color.  What's even better is that it's pretty good quality for lipstick.  Since it has a matte finish, I just make sure that my lips are exfoliated and I apply some lip balm before applying the lipstick.  It seems to prevent the dryness that is usually caused from the matte finish.  Unfortunately, I had to learn the hard way.  I didn't apply lip balm the first time I used it when my lips were pretty chapped prior, so it just kind of made it worse.  Just throw some rosebud salve on beforehand and you'll be good to go.  
Hope everyone is having a great weekend! I sure am--mostly because it's 50 degrees & sunny!
