Pink lipstick and ruffles

31 Aug

I gave in and bought Forever21′s wannabe Miu Miu’s. I’d have loved to splurge on the real thing but, well, $25 down is better than broke. They’re still pretty cute, no? Perhaps I’m just a sucker for sky-high heels!

I’ve been feeling ultra girly lately, which is slightly out of character — drawn to pink lipsticks and ruffles… that kind of thing. Figured I am a girl, after all, so I might as well embrace it! I must admit, there’s something strangely empowering about the makeup, mini skirt, and mary jane combo.

*wearing: H&M ruffle mini, Nasty Gal socks, F21 Mary Janes, vintage pearls

    They look so cute [paired wth the lace socks and the slightly edgy dress. :) Great combination, wonder when/ if they will turn up here in Toronto.

    I love them paired with the lace socks. They’re an awesome addiction fix and you can’t beat 25 bucks. This is kinda like a little girl all grown up outfit and it’s SUPER cute.

    hey girl! i have those exact MJ’s coming in the mail! I’m so effing stoked! they look so amazing on you and that’s a huge compliment to F21. I want to like their shoes, but the quality in person most of the time is well….kinda lacking.
    Go buy a cape. they are so whimsical and it’s like every movement is exaggerated—hahah I LOVE it!

    It might seem gauche, but I actually prefer the idea of the knockoffs to the real thing!
    You look hot!

    I love the forever 21 Miu Miu’s on you! I ordered them in black, to be delivered tomorrow – I can hardly wait! They’re so cute! Are they comfortable?

    Laura Reply:

    Thanks, girl! I wish I would have gotten them in black now – I think they’re all sold out! They aren’t the MOST comfortable shoes ever, but they’re not bad at all. Can’t wait to see them on you! xo

    Absolutely love this look, and to be totally honest I would’ve never known those weren’t the actual Miu Mius. You look gorgeous as per usual!

    Love Alexandra
