That ’70s dress

DSC_0975DSC_0973

Here’s what I wore Wednesday May 20. I’ve had this amazing vintage dress for years, but this was my first time wearing it. When I bought it, the armpits were stained. Though I manage to get the stains out, I’ve been afraid of wearing the dress in case the stains would come back and it would start to smell if I were to sweat in it, but then I thought that wearing it during the lock down, would be a perfect opportunity to “test” it, and so far so good.

Summery H&M haul

It’s time for another H&M haul (it’s been alomst 4 months since my last H&M haul), and this one is a pretty summery one.

Hvid T-shirt m. Mickey og Minnie Mouse print - H&M

My soft spot for Disney clothing will probably never go away. This cute Mickey and Minne Mouse T-shirt has a slightly oversized fit, and I love the pop of lilac (it goes very well with a pair of trousers you’ll see further down in the haul).

Mørkegul tanktop - H&M

I don’t remember the last time I bought and wore a tank top/vest, but there’s something about this dark yellow colour and the shape that has a retro vibe to it, so I decided to give a go. I’ve already worn it a couple of times, and I really like it.

How cute is this lemon set! As soon as I saw the skirt, I knew I had to have it. It’s the same style as my black and white polka dot skirt that I love so much. And I love that you could get a matching top; when worn together they almost look like a dress. I haven’t actually worn it yet, but I’m planning on wearing it for a special occation next week.

And on to the trousers that go so well with the Mickey and Minnie T-shirt. I’ve been wanting these wide leg lilac trousers since I first saw them, and when they went on sale, I finally puchased them. The sizing is on the bigger size, so I bought them one size smaller than I usually would, and that was a good choice. They are also a little sheer, so I’ve worn them with white cycle shorts underneath.

And now on to accessories. I obviously had to have the cute lemon earrings to go with the lemon set. I’ve also been wanting some rhinestone hoops, and the pack with three different sizes is pretty much exactly what I’d been looking for. Lastly (in terms of ear jewellery), I thought it would be fun to play with earcuffs, since I only have hole in each ear lobe, so I bought this pack of a bunch of different earrings and earcuffs.

I also bought some golden bracelets and a golden ankle bracelet/anklet (what’s the right term?), because I wanted some more golden jewellery options.

The last accessory I bought is this black braided headband. I didn’t have a simple black headband, and I thought this one was cute.

H&M neglelakker

An last but not least, I purchased three nail polishes. H&M nail polishes are actually really good, and I love these three colours. The first one which looks a bit like an oil slick in the bottle (though it’s more golden in real life) is called Precious, the green metallic one is called Persephone, and the yellow one it called Cream Saffron. I thought these were really nice summery colours.

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I hadn’t worn this brown/green duochrome lipstick in so long, but I thought it would be perfect with this outfit.

Here’s what I wore Tuesday May 19. It’s not often that I wear a jeans, blazer, and T-shirt outfit these days, but some days it just seems to be the only option.

Rose-gilded

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. Once again I’m wearing the MAC Rose-gilded eyeshadow palette on my eyes, and I think this look turned out so pretty. I’m telling you this palette is good!

Suit and tie

Here’s what I wore Monday May 18. I built this outfit around the shoes and thought they would be perfect with a suit look. I also hadn’t worn my black leather tie since I was in my late teens, so it was a lot of fun wearing that again.

Collective haul: drugstore + MAC

I’ve been doing quite a bit of make-up shopping lately, so for this haul you get two hauls in one; a small drugstore haul and a MAC lip product haul.

DSC_0815

Here are a few drugtstore pieces, I’ve picked up recently. I love EOS lip balms, and I’ve been wanted to try out the sticks and found this set of two lip balm sticks in the vanilla bean scent. I love vanilla scented things, and the scent of these lip balms is one of my favourite vanilla scents in a product. They smell like vanilla ice cream, which is so delicious! I’d never heard of the Rimmel Clear Complexion Clarifying Powder before. It claims to minimize breakouts (!), control shine, and mattify the skin. I actually haven’t tried it out yet, but if it actually minimizes breakouts, it’s a winner. I thought it was time to try out a new eyebrow pencil, and I’ve heard good things about the Maybelline Brow Ultra Slim pencil, so I picked it up in the shade 04 Medium Brown. I’m going to try it for the first time tomorrow. The last thing I purchased in the drugstore section is the Wet n Wild Prime Focus Primer Serum. I’ve already used it a couple of times, and so far I like it.

MAC lipticks are some of my absolute favourites, so I purchased a few more recently. I also purchased a lipglass, which is very unlike me, since I rarely wear a glossy lip, but all of a sudden, I’m kind of into it.

DSC_0912

So the lipglass I picked up is the classic red shade Ruby Woo. This one is from the limited edition collection Luna Illusions from earlier this year, so obviously the packaging is really pretty. It was on sale too, which is why I decided to get it. Red is my go-to lip colour, so I thought it would be nice to be able to make a red lip glossy. I’ve worn this once so far, and I loved the way it looked. I found it quite comfortable to wear too.

I’ve been wanting a very warm, yellow-based nude brown lipstick for a long time, and I finally found it in the lipstick called Kinkster. The picture doesn’t do the colour justice, but you’ll see it in action soon. This lipstick is apparently from some nude lipstick collection I didn’t know about, but I’m really glad I found it.

DSC_0990

I decided to get another shade from the Bronzing collection. This is the shade A La Plage and it’s a lustre finish lipstick, which I haven’t owned from MAC before. It’s quite sheer and glossy, which is the complete opposite of what I usually go for when it comes to lipstick, but as I wrote earlier on I’m kind of into a glossy lip these days, and this shade is really pretty.

DSC_0921

Last, but not least, I had to have the MAC Maker Barbie collaboration lipstick. I loved Barbies as a child, and this is the perfect Barbie pink lipstick. This is not a colour I usually wear, but I like it a lot more than I thought I would.

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I’m wearing another shade from the MAC Rose-gilded eyeshadow palette (the shimmery golden beige shade), and it’s another winner.

Wearable though non-traditional

DSC_0790DSC_0794

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. Adding grey to my outfit gave me an opportunity to wear grey lipstick, which I hadn’t worn in ages. Grey lipstick is probably not for everyone, but I actually find it quite wearable for a non-traditional lipstick colour.

Poreless Putty Primer, foundation – Maybelline Dream Urban Cover foundation (shade: 100 Warm Ivory), concealers – MAC Pro Longwear concealer (shade: NC20) + L’Oréal Infaillible More Than Concealer (shade: 322 Ivory) + Revolution Conceal & Define concealer (shade: C2), powders – e.l.f.

Face make-up: bronzer – Fenty Beauty Sun Stalk’r – Instant Warmth bronzer (shade: Inda Sun), blusher – Makeup Geek blusher in Spellbound, highlighter – Ofra Cosmetics x Nikkietutorials Glazed Donut highlighter.
