beyond bold.

The Cut has me interested in checking out this new, highly pigmented lipstick by Doe Deere of the label Lime Crime. The Candyfuture collection features some killer colors. I am loving the nude/peach and striking red lips. Will you be sporting any of these bold colors?

love affair with tights.

In my fantasy world, the weather would warrant wearing tights every day of the year. I think the last time I counted, I had over 40 pairs of opaque friends to sport on my legs all through the fall and winter. I love a good pair of tights. While the basic black is a wardrobe … Continue reading
