Luck Be A Lady

Luck Be A Lady dress in Geen Plaid

I'm pretty sure green is my new favorite color in my wardrobe.  I don't have many green dresses but I just bought two for Christmas/my birthday and I can't stop wearing them.  This Closet UK dress should be a staple in every wardrobe.  Modcloth sells it in a wide range of colors and prints (this isn't my first one) and I can see a couple more in my future.  It compliments every body type and it's one of the more comfortable dresses I own.  Plus, it has pockets.  You know how important that is!

Lipstick- Lime Crime Velvetine in Wicked

I just bought my first Velvetine lip stains from Lime Crime.  I was desperately looking for the Cashmere and Wicked hues and they happened to restock just in time for me to grab them.  Needless to say, I'm obsessed!  I don't want to get into too much detail because I'm planning a makeup post, but it surpasses any lipstick/lip stain I've ever purchased.  It's just so good.

This weekend we're taking Bianca to the Gentle Barn.  It's a safe haven for rescued barn animals and it's open to the public once a week.  Since Bianca loves animals and I hate zoos/circuses, this was a happy medium.  It's important for me to teach her how to love and respect all animals because I want her to grow up in a home much like mine.  Full of spoiled creatures all the time!

  3. I love the Velvetines! I have Suedeberry and Red Velvet and Suedeberry is literally my favourite summer shade, it's beautiful. I find Red Velvet comes out so dark on me it looks like Wicked does on you - which is awesome, by the way. I love the dark, edgy colours in this outfit, paired with your pretty hair! CC x

    1. Thank you so much <3. I was trying to figure out if I wanted Red Velvet or Wicked, but since I have a ton of true reds already I went with the latter. I can't help but be flattered by your compliment, you're the red lip queen!

  5. You look like such a beautiful badass in this outfit!! I love how you gave this dress some edge, and I love the dark lip on you. I had heard that Lime Crime has a drying effect, but with your glowing review, I might be tempted to try their stuff at some point...

    1. I'm not going to lie, it does have a drying effect. But I used a primer beforehand and it worked like a dream!

  6. I think green (especially this green) really works well with your hair color. It is just so pretty. Have fun at the petting zoo/barn/thing. Seems like a great outing for Bianca!

  7. Lovely! I've been following you on the ModCloth style gallery for a while, but this is the first time I've checked out your blog.
    It was nice reading about your plans to take your daughter to the GentleBarn. Seems like you have a sweet little family. <3

    PS: Your hair is amazing.

    1. Thank you so much for visiting Kathy! The Gentle Barn was just as fun as it was rewarding. We all loved it!

  8. This dress is so amazing! I love the bold green plaid and how it looks with your purple hair. The leather jacket was a fantastic addition too. You styled it perfectly.

    I'm loving this shade of lipstick too, but I stick to my OCC Lip Tars and NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream because I can't stand how Limecrime's founder treated bloggers in the past. It's a shame because they have cool colors but I can't support a CEO that attempts to sue bloggers for slander because they didn't say 100% positive things during a product review. Nope. The shade looks awesome on you though!

    1. I actually stayed away from Lime Crime for a long time because I heard they were claiming they were vegan when they weren't. I'm certainly not disagreeing with you, they've had their fair share of bad publicity, but I can't help but love the Velvetine. I had the OCC Lip Tar in Black Metal Dahlia before I got the Velvetine and while I loved the pigment, it's super sticky. Lime Crime Velvetine is completely kissable which is important to me (I kiss Bianca about 1,000 times a day!) so I had to give in. I certainly respect your reasoning for staying away though!

  10. Woah, green is most DEFINITELY your color! I love the way it looks with your lavender hair, its's such a fun contrast. And seeing you in a leather jacket was so surprising, I love how it compliments your vintage inspired style but shakes things up a bit. I'm clearly a bit smitten with this whole look, haha.

    And the Gentle Barn sounds wonderful- I didn't know places like that existed but I'm really happy that they do :)
