Tartan & coffee

























(TNA tee, Wilfred pants, F21 blanket/poncho, Jeffrey Campbell shoes, Fallon earrings, Aldo motorcycle gloves, Alice + Olivia by Stacey Bendet cuff bracelet, Alex & Chloe sword necklace, vintage Chanel purse, CoverGirl Outlast Lipstain in Berry Smooch)

This bright tartan poncho/blanket is one of my favorite Christmas presents, from my dear coworker Sara who knew I had wanted it for weeks! Not only is it disgustingly comfortable (as in, I've worn it way too many times), but draped over a plain tee or shirt, the poncho's in-your-face color and pattern elevates any outfit. I posted a bunch of outfit photos this time around to do justice to my photographer, Catharine Acurso, who is young, amazing and talented beyond her years. Her work is just inspiring and I'm so lucky to be one of her subjects!

On another note, as a Lucky Alpha Shopper, I recently got to try CoverGirl's Outlast Lipstain in Berry Smooch - and now I'm hooked on it! I'm not a fan of sticky lipsticks, and usually just opt for a clear gloss, but this lipstain went on sheer and pretty. Aside from its flattering, dusky pink hue, I love the marker-like applicator which makes it easy to put on for clueless makeup beginners like myself.

Probably my favorite outfit of yours to date. I love its simplicity, but there's something about it that just sets you apart from all the other LA girls. It's sexy yet understated. And the poncho... don't even get my started on the lust!
