Black, white, red and that time I kind of accidentally dressed up like Mia Wallace.

Leatherette jacket, Joe Fresh; White button-front, Gregory; Rhinestone necklace, F21; Earrings, Wünderkrammer; Black v-neck sweater, Gap; Jeans, Banana Republic; White tee-shirt (layered under white button-front), lululemon; Boots, Locale; Ring, gift; Red lipstick, Red Lizard by Nars.

Yesterday, I got a haircut. And noticed that it was Everybody, Everywear: Black and White, so I quickly changed my outfit plan. I realized fairly quickly that I don’t own much in the way of white clothing… Happily, I do own lots of black. I’m not really sure what it is, but wearing one piece of crisp white in a sea of black makes an outfit über chic, don’t you think?

As soon as I put on all elements of the outfit, I realized that the one thing that would really make the outfit pop was a nice strong red lip. Red Lizard by Nars doesn’t come out to play too often, but when I’m not wearing a lot of colour, my first instinct is to punch things up with a little lippy.

I didn’t realize that I was dressed like a winterized version of Mia Wallace until after my haircut. Actually, it was Aarron who noticed that with my shorter, darker style I was a little pulp fictiony. I love this haircut, it was exactly the change I’ve been looking for – my hair has been almost exactly the same since May. A change in a hairstyle often precedes a change in sartorial choices. I can’t wait to see what kinds of outfits I gravitate towards with this same same, but dramatically different, hairstyle.

Of note, the earrings I am wearing (that you can’t see in the outfit pictures). A Christmas gift from my sister-in-law and nieces. The eldest picked them out. She was delighted with them. I think, as a 7 year-old, if I’d given these earring to my aunt, I would have been just as delighted with them. They’re hilarious, and I’ve been wearing them quite a bit. And sometimes, when I’m feeling cheeky, I’ll reverse them. Kind of changes the meaning a whole bunch.

  1. I have never been able to pull off bangs – but they look amazing on you. Love the haircut and the full bangs. Such a great look. – Katy

    • Thanks so much! And I don’t know, I really love the long side-swept bang you have going on right now, and the short bangs with your pixie cut were perfect on you!

    • Why, thank you!

      It is such a great clip! And it’s nice to know that if I keep my hair this shape and colour, I have a lazy costume for any last minute Hallowe’en parties!

      I’ve tried out a few different red lipsticks before, and this one, Red Lizard, is really the only one that works well for me. Most other reds I’ll put on and like in the moment, but as the day wears on, the colour starts to irk me.
