happy coincidence











photos by caroline
(vintage kangol hat, vintage crocheted cardigan, vintage crushed red velvet leotard, aa pants, vintage flats)

once a year, usually in the fall, i try to wear lipstick.  i mostly stay away from makeup because i never really learned how to put it on properly and also im lazy.  but in this case, caroline has a chanel lipstick she got while we were in paris so i figured i couldnt go too wrong.  maybe i'll become a real young lady now and start wearing it all the time.  yesterday was the first day in many months that caroline and i had the whole day off at the same time and we took advantage of it by stuffing 3 months of girltalk into 24 hours.  my favorite kind of day.

With it you're pretty - without it you're the most beautiful woman in the world.

I think that lipstick looks quite lovely on you! but you look great all the time anyway :)

I love those marathon girl talk catch up sessions. They're so restorative.

These pictures are beautiful! You look so pretty and I think no makeup perfectly suits you. Although, this lipstick looks lovely.

Wherever it is you took these pictures at looks magical.

you look beautiful with our without lipstick! but its fun to see you in it.
i love those kind of days. my best friend lives 8 hours away and we usually have to fit like 6 months of girl talk into 3 days :)

Ana Karen said...

Such a beautiful lady.
I myself am beginning to delve into the makeup world. I mostly feel that I look like a clown while wearing it, though. You look stunning in red lips, however.

Michelle said...

CRIMSON VELVET AND CREAM LACE, one of my favourite combinations ever! The colours look so lovely together, and makeup looks great on you (not saying that you don't look great without make-up, haha).

And, yay! Girltalk. Didn't he bring out a new, free album? I haven't listened to it yet but I've heard it's good.
