What to wear to sushi on a chilly night. I opted for my new '60s wool mustard cut out dress and matching black lipstick from Portland Black Lipstick Company.

Feeling a little spooky and disturbed. I placed black velvet beneath the dress cut-outs to keep it PG for a monday dinner and I figured my mouth could be like, the fourth cut-out. Concept dressing. Speaking of which, I found the dress along with a gem of a pair of pants at The Manhattan Vintage Show which always fills my closet while simultaneously draining my bank account. Funny how that works.

I wrote the longest review on black lipstick recently which you can find HERE. If you love black lips then, please, come over. I have every black lipstick in existence on my desk currently. I guess I'd better hop to, and start wearing it every day!

Hey! By the way, did you notice my blog looks a little different? I'm in the process of revamping it so I apologize for a few weird things you may find here and there (I'm one of them. Hi!). This ol' blog has been far past due for a makeover and it's starting right now. Say blog? How do you feel about black lipstick??

Hat is American Apparel. Dress is vintage. Tights are from the faraway land of Japan. Heels are Nine West. Lipstick is Portland Black Lipstick Company.
