Sequin Leggings : Joe Fresh $10 (old)
T-Shirt: Forever 21
Clutch: Steve Madden
I wore this outfit to an opening of my friend's store Just Imagine Hair and Accessories Gallery on Friday night. If you're in Jamaica do check them out and like their facebook fan page for updates on new arrivals.
I've had these navy leggings for a while and I have never worn them because I always felt they were unflattering, but I felt this festive season is the best time to wear all my sequins, so I slipped them on with a V- neck tee to tone down the sparkles and paired them with a cropped blazer to polish off the look. Black and blue worn together was once thought to be a taboo colour combination but, alas! no more. I think this colour combination offers a sophisticated palette and are both quite complimentary together.
The hairstyle was something I saw blogger Mikelah from Style and Vibes try the other day and told her that I was going to try it; It was a big risk and I must say it paid off as everyone gave me compliments all night, I think it's also a little throw back to Janelle Monae.
I must say the lipstick I'm wearing 'Brave Red', a creme based lipstick is proving to be my favourite MAC red lately, a very close second to Ruby Woo. Ruby Woo will always be #1 because I find that it is a fresh and modern matte red, while Brave Red is more of a classic red; however Brave Red doesn't dry out the lips as much as Ruby Woo does, so it makes it more wearable.
So do you guys like the hair? Is anyone willing to try it? and does anyone even know the name of it or have any suggestions for what to call it? Drop a line ;)
Have a great week!!
