Happy Indie Day, FilipiNas and No-s! Most of my long time readers know I’m all over renowned MUA Lisa Eldridge’s channel like a rash and I know she inspires a lot of other women as well. She is my ultimate inspiration in an earthly person when it comes to my makeup career. There is also something I really like that she uses often… it isn’t a tube of lipstick but it’s still got “makeup” written all over it.
It’s Lisa’s red lipped PRADA dress which she first saw whenworn by Michelle Williams on British Elle in 2010 (this was also worn by French actress Lea Seydoux) and then she went out and bought the same one. I happened to be in ZARA last month, a place that I mentally mark with a DO NOT ENTER on most days of the month. This day however I was really badly on the hunt for some clothes, comfortable clothes, and lo and behold…among the cheaper racks I spotted this cotton top. I’m pretty chuffed to have it, it fits me like a glove :).
The lips aren’t printed exactly the same but the pattern flatters me and I like that it’s sort of a younger version of what she’s wearing. I also like that some of the lips are bleeding lipcolor…ooh!
Ugh, I’m currently trying to remember the price, all I remember is I smiled because it was about Php599 or was it Php799? I’m 100% sure it was way under Php1000 because I took it immediately and went to pay for it. Walking out of ZARA with this one not too expensive item made me feel like I was walking out with ten!
