I’ve never liked combining black with certain colors. For example, yellow or blue, but as time goes on I am learning ways to incorporate these shades that I normally stay away from. A good way to mix blue with black is to use a lighter shade. Not only does it contrast great against black but it really makes the outfit pop.
How adorable is this vest? My favorite color is black and I wear it daily so I love being able to throw on a strong print to accent my outfit. You can instantly turn a boring and dull outfit into something that pops with color or a print.
This vest is from ShopSosie.com and is still available in a few sizes, so get it while you can!
I had the opportunity to attend the Urban Decay + Gwen Stefani Launch Party last week. We got to mix, mingle, sip on cocktails and best of all – check out the whole entire collection! The line includes a Blush Palette, Eyeshadow Palette, Brow Box, 8 lipsticks and 6 glide on lip pencils.
The packaging is stunning but the real prize is once you open each item up. The colors & shades are vibrant and pigmented. The Eyeshadow Palette is soft and bendable. It’s filled with great neutrals as well as bold pops of color. The Blush Palette has shades ranging from matte bronze to a gorgeous shade of pink – all of which have buildable coverage.
The lipsticks are very ‘Gwen’, especially all of the reds. The formula of both the lipsticks and lip pencils are fabulous. They go on super smooth and last, which is always a plus! I received three shades and have swatched them so you can see how they look on my skin tone.
