OOTD: Magenta Lace

reiss dress pink 4ab


It’s holiday season and other than holidays off work and lots of food, one thing I love about holidays are shopping for bargains. Everywhere you go, it’s SALES, OFFERS, DEALS, BARGAIN! Which is where my problem with MAC Cosmetics lies…So am I the only one who has noticed that MAC hardly does any sales at all? On Cyber Monday and all other sales events you will see one dry poster that reads ‘FREE SHIPPING’ on their website… As if! I’m not here for it! Your products are bomb, a 3 for 2 at least wouldn’t hurt no one… 😉 What is FREE SHIPPING? ASOS does that on their day off. Mango offers that in their sleep 0_o

What is this now?? Why won’t MAC let girls be great? I was even angrier when I managed to snag a lip pencil from their shop (Mac Magenta, £12.50). I was on my way home when I dropped the pencil in the middle of traffic while crossing the road. Chei. Let my enemies get behind me oh. Trying to use lip pencil to get me on a stretcher. Come and see me desperately waving my arms and begging cars not to smash me or my pencil while I ran to pick it up. Choi this life. Anyway. I decided to try the pencil with this peachy lace dress with pleat detail from Reiss. I lined my lips with Mac Magenta lip pencil and used YSL Rouge Pur Couture Fuschia on my inner lips. Looking at these pics, I wonder if it was worth it? Was it worrit?

Corset dresses are always win some, lose some with me. The fitted bra never fits! This dress is in an 8 but I struggle to fit in the top bit :/ I’m thinking I should let it go 🙁 The dress is fab. Trust Reiss to deliver. If you are a regular UK size 8 (US 4) and would love to buy this dress please contact me at artbecomesyou@yahoo.com for details.

I tried to get a bit of holiday cheer on by dyeing my weave. Womp. The dye is so faint but I tried! It shows better in sunlight.

Bye y’all.

    Well I guess that wind is only blowing in my neck of woods.
    Reiss always delivers. The dress suits you and your complexion. Before selling it check with the a seamstress or DIY. Where they could adjust the top section to fit your boobs. You are blessed with what some African girls are going under the knife to get.
    As for the lippie liner it was worth retrieving it. Worrit, yep!

    Very pretty dress. Thank God you went back for the lip liner. It looks amazing on you.
    I have the same problem with dresses too. Going braless helps though with some pasties on your nipples.
