In My Closet - Black and White and Boots

I had pulled this little jersey number aside a few weeks ago, and haven't gotten around to playing with it until today.

Normally I wear it unbelted, as shown here in August, with a pair of platforms. Much more classic and girly. So I decided to take it in a completely different direction.

The boots (and the belt,) made it edgier, just what was needed. I would leave the look at this for the day, but for night...

I added red lipstick (huge step for me!) and the necklace. The necklace was a recent purchase that I could not resist...I even love it with a simple tee!

The lipstick is something that's a little bit harder for me, but it's growing on me. Red always works well with black and white, but I may try going with a berry or maybe something closer to an orange red...

Has anyone else experimented with a strong lip for spring? Any recommendations?

Try Mac's Pink Poodle Lipglass -- it looks terrifyingly hot pink in the tube, goes on much more sheer but still bright.

Ohmigosh you look gorgeous with that dress styled in either way - but I have to say that the boots and belt really made it so perfect for an evening out with the girls. I am so obsessed with those shoes!!

As for strong lips...I haven't tried it myself; though I'd love to attempt an orange shade for Spring!! :)

I love the black and white! So perfectly simple and yet interesting! With lips I always go for red (NARS) or florescent pink ;) I think I should branch out!
