Layer, Layers, Layering


Oh Winter, thou art a cold Mistress! *Ahem* Apparently I've been so chilly I'm starting to proclaim in Shakespearean! So yes, layering. I have to thank long sleeve t-shirts, thermal undershirts and leggings for helping to chase the chill away. I also have to give a shout out to wool socks, even though I have a hard time finding them in stores and I have NO idea why. And here is a side rant....

Women's winter clothing. Unless I'm finding wool sweaters at the thrift store or wearing vintage, nothing seems to be made in materials that are the least bit warm!? I was searching for some warm sweaters (i.e. not "fine knit") a few months ago and came up with NADA. Nothing. Zip. Zero. I had to settle for a waterfall cardigan that was somewhat warm......... *grumblebats* I'm just going to wear a blanket with a bunch of safety pins.

I'm wearing the Skeleton Dress over a long sleeve t-shirt and leggings, paired with my cowl neck buckle sweater, spider pendant that Derek sculpted for me and Dr. Marten boots.


I love the pixie hem on the bottom of the dress!


I also would like to mention the lipstick I'm wearing is the NARS velvet matte lip pencil in Cruella which I received from Sephora (free gift!) for my birthday. I really love the color, yet I'm starting to realize matte lipsticks may not be for me as they are very drying and I hate having dry lips. I do use a lip primer and dap a little lip balm on throughout the day, so matte may only be a type of lipstick I may wear from time to time. But, the color and product=awesome!

Do you have any tips or advice for wearing matte lipsticks?

Thank you for reading!

  2. Great outfit!

    I am on a perpetual hunt for gorgeous warm sweaters in natural materials, but so far I'm failing... Unless I want to be robbed blind there seems to be next to nothing out there. Grrr! Should I have to take up knitting myself to get a good sweater??

  3. Colourpop's matte lipsticks are not drying at all and are super cheap! I hate having dry lips too and I find their matte lipsticks creamy and comfortable.

  4. Woolsocks are actually very easy to make yourselve. The high price and low prosent of wool on knitted socks in stores made me learn how to knit again :) (At school we have to learn how to knit in elementary school -Finland-.)

    1. Yes! I think I do need to learn to knit and make my own wool socks! We learned to sew in school, yet learning to knit would have been awesome too ;)

  5. I use layers a lot too. I'm lucky this year they released fluffy/plushy non-furry sweaters and jackets!

  6. L.A. Colors has a moisturizing matte lipstick. I haven't tried it myself. So, I can't tell you if it works or not. Can't remember the last time I put on lipstick.

  7. With your sense of style, you could make a blanket with a bunch of safety pins look amazing. ;)

  8. Agreed! That pixie/handkerchief hem is marvelous and lends this dress a delightfully ethereal quality.

  10. I am so covetous of that sweater!

    I cannot wear wool unless it is lined and I'm probably wearing long sleeves underneath, it irritatws my skin. Lucky I live in Australia, I guess!

    1. I find wool to be a bit itchy, so I do the same thing of layering and trying to not let it touch my skin. I don't own any 100% wool socks, so I'm not sure if it would effect to tootsies ;)

  11. I can't agree with you enough: I HATE MATTE LIPSTICKS. HATE. LOATH. They dry out your lips like the Sahara. HATE.

    What a cool sweater and that pendant is to die for! Your hubby is a talent!

    1. As a self proclaimed lip balm addict, I don't know why I even thought matte lipstick was a good idea....LOL!
