red lips, red veins

this post's title is a play on Regina Spektor's "Blue Lips." i love that song so much, and i also really like deep red lipstick. and many other red things. thing is, i think i'd get the weirdest stares if i wore lipstick outside of my house... or a dance performance. anyways, the lipstick i wore is estee lauder in 'black wine,' i truly adore this shade. not TOO red, but not anything else unwanted either.

>>> yesterday i wore a moto jacket and scarf [not pictured] from H&M, sweater tee from the hall closet, and my newly ripped DIY tights :D very comfy, and the night is still not cold enough that i would sacrifice all to wear denim/ thermals lol. such a simple outfit, but something that i really think looks very well put together. FOR A CRAZIER LOOK: add some combat/lace-up boots (gahh still looking for an affordable pair!), draw on cat-eyes, and slap a couple studded accessories and you're ready to go!

for the tights: all you need to do is grab a pair of sheer/semi sheer TIGHTS, NOT LEGGINGS. then take a pair of scissors or something stab-able and slit a hole wherever desired. to get gnarly ladders/rips, pull the area near the border of the hole you cut and keep on pulling until you want to stop. do this wherever you like on the surface of your tights. VOILA!
hope you enjoy the DIY :)
