What to Wear to Work series

I don't have any meetings today so I thought I'd try a dressy casual look. Here's my inspiration.

Here's what I wore.

...everything about this!

Ceux qui médisent derrière mon dos,
mon cul les contemple.


Francis Picabia

Rien de tel pour un lundi matin qu'un look qui y va à fond, je n'ai fait l'impasse sur rien, j'y tenais à mon look rétro chic, c'est pour cela que j'ai soigné le moindre des détails.

Un look que j'ai pensé voilà des semaines lorsque j'ai commandé cette jupe à basques Onoz, il me fallait un top qui ne tombe pas dans la facilité et comme vous me connaissez j'ai souvent tout le temps des fashions obsessions. C'est encore chez Asos Curve que j'ai trouvé mon bonheur avec ce top à carreaux, la seule difficulté fut ensuite de pouvoir l'enfiler sous la jupe sans faire trop de plis car il m'arrive à mi-cuisse l'animal.

Je suis un peu beaucoup amoureuse de cette jupe et je vous conseille de bien zieuter sur le site d'Onoz car il y a un déstockage de très jolies pièces, d'ailleurs j'ai fait une toute petite razzia. De très jolis looks à venir, je me réjouis déjà de vous les présenter car mon cerveau est en ébullition, je cherche déjà les assemblages parfaits.

Nothing better than a rocking outfit, I'm not skipping any details! I wanted a retro and classic look, that's why I overlooked every details.

It's a look I thought about weeks ago when I order this skirt from the brand Onoz so of course I needed a top that would stand out, can't go with easy choices, and you know me I often have fashion obsessions! It's again at Asos Curve that I found my dream with this checked top, the only difficulty was to wear it over the skirt without making too many folds (goes down mid-thigh, the devilish thing!).

I'm a little too much in love with this skirt and I suggest you take a good look on the website of Onoz as they are doing great deals on some very nice pieces, I did buy quite a few things. I can tell you some very nice looks are on the way, I can't wait to show you, my brain is on fire!

Passons à mon bun! Oui l'énorme chignon que j'ai sur la tête et une version maximisée de mes buns habituels, comme vu par exemple ici, et cela à l'aide d'un postiche en mousse, c'est vraiment simple à réaliser et cela fait vraiment beaucoup d'effet, peu de personnes ce week-end m'ont cru quand je leur ai dit que cela m'avait pris à peine 5 minutes pour le réaliser. Je vous ai mis le lien juste en dessous des photos, comme d'hab'.

Le reste vous connaissez, mon combo habituel, sac, gants et escarpins sans oublier mon petit manteau vintage acheté il y a plus de 10 ans maintenant, ça vaut la peine de conserver quelques pièces fétiches. Je lui ai donné un coup de jeune avec une ceinture en cuir (issue de ma jupe patineuse) que j'ai noué par dessus pour lui structurer une taille.

Voilà je vous laisse avec l'invitée du neige, la neige qui a bien failli emporter mes oreilles ce jour-là.

I'm already looking for the perfect combinations. Let's get on with my bun! Yes the huge one I have on my head is a supersize version, like seen here, and thanks to a hairpiece, it's so easy to make and it looks so good! A lot of people didn't believe me when I told them it only took me 5mn to make! I added the link right under the photos, as usual!

The rest you already know, my usual combo: bag, gloves and court shoes and let's not forget my little vintage coat bought more than 10 years ago. It's worth keeping some oldies goodies. I gave it back a bit of its youth with a leather belt (from my skater skirt) , I tied over to structure my waist.

That's it for today, I shall leave you with the arrival of the snow (which almost made my ears cold).

Bon lundi!

I hope you all had a great Monday.

Lippy Review

I know this is an outfit blog, but due to my local KMart closing, I was able to pick up some great cosmetics at 90%.  Such a great sale, I thought I'd share.  Here are my current favs in rotation.

Revlon's Fig Jam shoes up brown with a very distinct reddish brown. I bought it thinking it would be a great chocolate.  It is not straight chocolate.

 Covergirl's Divine is PRETTY!  It is a bold magenta and a lot of fun to wear.  It reminds me of this picture I pinned on Pinterest.
 I haven't worn Maybelline's Captivating Coral yet, but I am looking forward to it
Revlon's Iced Chocolate comes off as a pretty browned mauve.  It's easily an everyday grab for my NC 40 skin tone.
 NYX's Chloe is a true magenta.
 I forsee wearing Maybelline's Electric Shock throughout the summer.
Revlon's Fuchsia is more of a hot pink than a magenta.  Believe it or not this and the above 2 pinks have completely different hues.
 LOVE LOVE LOVE this lipstick by Make Up For Ever.  $20 at Sephora (I got it from returning a gift) the lipstick is highly pigmented.  The color comes off just as it looks... a glorious shade of purple.
 Revlon's Colorburst Sunbaked has almost no shade of brown.
 Revlon's Peony is a shiny pink.  Fun but not a lot of staying power.
I wanted to try Drew Barrymore's new cosmetic line, Flower. My Little Buttercup is anything to rant and rave about.  It is the EXACT color of my complexion, so I don't plan on giving it away. 
Revlon's Crystal Water was $1.  I got it because it was so cheap.  I thought it would have more shimmer, but it is more of a clear gloss.  You get the iridescent effect when you pile on the gloss.
Have you gotten any new cosmetics lately?
