Red Hot



blouse :: forever 21 dalmatian print blouse (similar)
skirt :: forever 21 pleather pencil skirt (similar)
purse :: tano zippy bucket diva in pewter c/o must have bag 

Man, I'm craving Red Hots. I think it's because of the red skirt. I'm a big fan of cinnamon, cinnamon gum, cinnamon candy, cinnamon fruits (yes I sprinkle cinnamon on fruit). I always try and stowaway something cinnamon in my bag even if I never eat it. Then it begs the question, do I like melted, stale red hots clinging on for dear life to the bottom of my bag before I viciously rip the gooey suckers off? No. But I'd much rather over carry than under carry, even if it means the occasional impromptu cinnamon bag freshener. (I'm such a pro at segueing to my next point - you'll see). 

Over carry you say? Why yes, I am one of those girls that you secretly whisper about 1] why is she carrying a bag that's almost twice her size 2] what's in her larger than life duffel 3] is it necessary to lug her whole life on a 5 minute In-N-Out run, talk about baggage. If you're not familiar with California's In-N-Out, it's only the best burger place ever, no big.

I'll answer the third question for you now. Yes, it is necessary to carry the doctor, the makeup artist, the coat check, the library, and Trader Joe's in my bag, at all times. I'm addicted, dependent on my bottomless magic hat with a strap. I always find myself with a headache, blister, smeared mascara, or bored, freezing, and hungry at the most inopportune times. 

Like Tuesday, my makeup was good all day. I ran in it, blotted it, even napped in it, but it made like a symbiotic organism and stuck to me. Then five minutes before I swing into the SF pre-fashion week event, I figure I'll just consult my trusty compact mirror for old time's sake and guess what I hear. That cracked piece of glass tells me I'm no longer the fairest of them all (insert Murphy's Law of Thermodynamics: if anything can go wrong, it will, and at the most inopportune time). 

But HALLELUJAH to the heavens, I had my trusty, depthless Tano zippy diva which held the elixirs to quickly  & quietly banish the dark under my eyes, instill color back into my cheeks, and of course make my breath red hot cool

  15. I love this outfit - the skirt and shoes are amazing. I carry a huge bag around most days as well - usually with a pair of flats in it when my five-inchers get to be too much. Bonus: the heels fit in the bag, so I don't have to carry them in my hands :)

  16. I love that blouse, it's such a lovely print! :D And yea, I always carry way more than I need, ha ha

  17. Whoo, red hot indeed!!! Those shoes are KILLER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    And by the way, I also carry my life with me in my purse. People may tease me for it but, in an emergency, they're not going to be teasing me anymore when they need a tampon, bandaid, floss, etc... and then of course I get to tease them for being so underprepared ;)

  20. Lucy - totally love this look, i mean, red and leopard is always amazing.

    I am an over carrier trying to cut back. Also, if you have a big bag and your are out with people they will often try to use you as their pack mule.
    or maybe that is just my little sister who hates to carry anything.

  67. When it comes to meeting business related expenses business startup loans for bad credit UK would be the excellent alternative. The loans are easily accessible on convenient terms at Lenders Club where you do not need to go through tedious formalities.
