Daily outfit 8/10/2014

It’s been such a long time since I’ve done an outfit post.  With all my Liptember selfies, I just ran out of time to take proper outfit shots.  But now we’re into October and I’ve got more opportunities to record my outfits.

I’m really feeling the Halloween vibe at the moment.  I wore this witchy outfit to go out for dinner with my family.

I am wearing:

– Black sequinned dress from Living Doll

– Black and white striped jacket from Cotton On

– Black fishnet tights from Leona Edminson

– Ruby slippers from Betts

– Studded belt (gift from my ex-boyfriend)

– Green vintage cocktail ring (Faye Bella on Etsy)

This look actually began with my makeup.  Miss Fairchild sent me a huge care package filled with the spoils from her latest beauty clear-out.  There was a beautiful emerald green eyeshadow in the package that I was instantly smitten with.  It is one of the Bourjois intense eye pots in 05 and I just adore the colour.  Sadly, the pretty green didn’t show up on camera.  The rich green shade instantly put me in mind of the Wicked Witch of the West and the rest of the outfit started falling into place.

I created a smokey eye using the green and some soft grey shades.  In keeping with the witchy theme, I used my Urban Decay lipstick in Theodora from the Oz: the Great and Powerful collection.

Then I added black on black, playing with texture.  I threw on this stripey jacked for a bit of lightness.  And of course, I couldn’t resist wearing my ruby slippers to complete the look.

I’m looking forward to adding some more Halloween-inspired outfits to the blog this month.  I’ve definitely started embracing my dark side now that Halloween is on it’s way.
