Last Red & Black Outfit for Me

This is the last day I'm in the office for the week, so it's my last outfit of this year's Red & Black Week. But I do have another post scheduled to fit the theme.

I should mention the red lipstick I've been wearing all week. Really, it's been my go-to red lippie for years: Sephora Artist #549. It skews a little pink-red, but the shade works really well on me, & it's especially good for pin-up styles.

I've seen this specific line in stores, but not online. They're highly pigmented & come in a more limited range of colors, but some really vivid shades. And the colors last -- in fact, this red stains my lips for up to a day afterwards. I have to wear a dark burgundy after it. Or, as in this week, keep wearing red!

What I'm wearing:
Red sheath dress, Target
Black & white cardigan, White House Black Market
Black tights, unknown brand
Black pumps with silver buckle, Kenneth Cole Reaction
Black & white beaded necklace with matching earrings, made by me
Silver & garnet poison ring, eBay


  1. I have a couple of Sephora lipsticks that stain my lips - some bloggers complain about that but I like it because the color stays rich the whole time I'm wearing it.

    I've officially decided that Red & Black Week 2013 will feature one "Red, Black and White" day somewhere in the middle, as a tribute to your fabulous use of that combination!

  2. Wow, thanks! That would be a fun addition to the week :-)
