Oh My Chic.

2012 December 18

It’s easy to fall into the jeans-and-a-sweater routine as temperatures drop.  I was thisclose to pairing my new super chic sweatshirt with a pair of boyfriend jeans, when my favorite red maxi skirt caught my eye. It’s normally a summer/early fall piece, but I think it works with black slipper flats and a deep berry lip (more on that later). Fun, right? Definitely a bright, quirky holiday outfit.

Sweatshirt: ily couture; skirt: ASOS; flats: Sam Edelman; necklace: Amrita Singh

The better to see your flats, my dear.

Was drooling at the makeup counter a few weeks back when Dan the NARS Guru taught me how to create what he called “the prettiest red lip ever.” Go over the entire lip lightly with a black eyeliner pencil (I. Am. Not. Kidding.), follow with NARS Cruella lip pencil, and finish up with a coat of NARS Risky Business lip gloss. The result? A super saturated deep berry lip. Loving this!

Gettin' lippy.

Last few days for Christmas! Can’t wait for a break, time with family, and some festive mulled wine. Happy Holidays!

    That lipstick is gorgeous! I can’t believe the nars guy had you use black eyeliner- that sounds crazy! But it looks so good, what a fun makeup trick. :)

    Right on trend as usual, Ash! I love the way you’ve styled this look, and you can’t even tell that’s technically a summer skirt.
