By this time, you might already know that I love my Dr. Martens 1460’s. Why wouldn’t I?! The styling possibilities are endless! Lately I’ve been obsessed with wearing Skater Socks
with my Docs. I’ve purchased several different colors, all in the mid-calf length. I’m in the process of photographing all of the pairs I’ve purchased with different styling ideas, but in the meantime, check out this look I’ve created for Spring. Shorts, Dr. Martens, and Skater Socks? Oh my! <3
Skater Socks are available in sooo many colors and lengths. Dear gawd, I’m obsessed. Let’s please appreciate the fact that they’re also made in the USA. *claps* *hands up in praise* You can check out all of the colors and lengths here:
The skull sweater I’m wearing is made by ModCloth, but I noticed that they no longer sell this particular one anymore. I purchased it probably a couple of years ago. I found two almost exactly like the one I’m wearing as well as ones that are similar to help you recreate this look:
And of course, a link to the most affordable and best place to buy your authentic Dr. Martens 1460’s..
And if you haven’t already checked it out, see my post about buying these babies online.
I’m pretty in love with 90’s fashion. 90’s grunge in particlar really inspires a lot of the looks I try to create. This photo edit reminds me of the 90’s and that makes me happy.
The past couple of years, the world of lip colors has really opened up to all colors of the rainbow and then some. From shades of neon oranges to bright purples, there are some incredible brands making unconventional lip colors that everyone can rock.
One of my favorite brands right now creating lipsticks in an array of unconventional colors is Melt Cosmetics. The creators of Melt Cosmetics includes Lora Arellano, one of Rihanna’s makeup artists. Rihanna is one of my favorite gals, so when I heard Lora launched her own makeup line, I checked it out stat!
Currently I own Melt’s Dark Matter Eyeshadow Stack and their lipsticks in shades Summer and Blow. All are amazing products, but ohhhh Blow. Blow has won my heart. I never thought I could pull off a shade of green on my lips, but this shade is oh so wearable!!
This lipstick is not only incredibly creamy and easy to apply, it smells heavenly and absoluely stays put! I love pairing this lip with a simple eye look. I used Kat Von D’s Shade + Light Eye contour palette, some Benefit They’re Real, popped some blush on my cheeks and bam. Simple yet intense look. I’m in love.
Melt’s lipsticks aren’t necessarily too pricey at $19.00 each, but they are only available online at www.meltcosmetics.com so a standard shipping cost of about $7.oo (plus tax) also applies. One lippie can run you almost $30. If you’re not willing to shell out that much cash, I found some different shades of green lipsticks by some great brands at a much cheaper price. These shades are all so gorgeous!
If I can pull off green lipstick, I think anyone can. If you’re hesitant in wearing unconventional shades of lipstick, I say indulge yourself! I guarantee you’ll fall in love with the way a shade of green can on your lips can brighten up and bring your entire look to life.
