Capes Aren't Just for Superheroes


Wintertime is Arizona is the best. It feels exactly like fall in the midwest. The leaves start to fall off the trees (FINALLY) and the air is crisp. The most you need to wear is a light jacket or sweater or, in my case, a cape to stay warm. I got this beautiful cherry red cape from ChicWish last year (try this grey one), but this is the first time I have worn it. It got shoved into the back of my closet and I completely forgot about it.

Since dusting it off, I have received so many compliments on it. You can wear this cape with or without a belt. I like it with a belt so that my waist is defined. I paired it with a patterned shirt so that my whole outfit wasn't color blocked.

Try out a cape if you find one you like. It's a unique and stylish alternative to your trusty sweater.

A year ago or so, I did a poll asking my guy friends whether they found red lipstick flattering on women. The overall consensus was that guys didn't like red lipstick and preferred natural colors. Well, after seeing these pictures and pictures of the 2011 spring fashion shows, I say, "Who cares!" Haha. If you don't find red lipstick gorgeous, you're crazy.

Red Lips Question

redlipsSo, red lips always seem to become popular when fall roles around. This year dark, rich reds and maroons are very prominent. Here's the thing though, I've heard it said by a couple of guys that they don't like red lipstick on girls. Is this true? Why?I don't know if the answers will stop me from wearing red lipstick because I love it, but I'm definitely curious of the answers! lipcolorsred-lips-fashionchristina-red-lipsjessica-biel-big-red-lips

Legs for Days

tightsPatterned tights and short skirts are a combo that you won't want to miss this fall. Add cute flats, boots or booties and your lower half will be lookin' good. I remember wearing patterned tights when i was three. They had cute, fuzzy red hearts on them. It's crazy that adults are wearing these now.
