the jumpsuit

jumped outta my comfort zone into a jumpsuit... ! 

happy thursday! for this shoot i pulled out my first jumpsuit... (eep!) what's fashion (or anything for that matter) if you don't step out of your comfort zone every now and then? let's just start off by saying... these things are not the most flattering to wear due to the top and bottom being all in one piece. not to mention the inseam, thigh and hip area. that's probably why i don't see many women wear them. regardless, i've come to the conclusion that all you need to rock a jumpsuit is one thing... CONFIDENCE (that and a good tailor!). a woman who wears a jumpsuit is usually FIERCELY struttin' her stuff like no one else. advice: don't ever mess with a woman in a jumpsuit. ever. okay, but seriously, i encourage you to try it! i liked this one due to the simplicity, pleats, pockets, price, it also came with a belt but that didn't do anything for me... so i cut the belt loops off and did without it all together. nonetheless, this won't be my last jumpsuit.

ok, let's talk about this lipstick shall we? and the answer is no, you can never have too many! this was the first lipstick made by TATCHA, so... that was the justification for purchase. it was a limited edition edition lipstick in the color Kyoto Red, TATCHA only made so many for the debut earlier this spring, but apparently, it was so popular that there is now a waitlist! looks like more is to come, so sign yourself up here. this is an elegant red for every skintone and described as "...featherweight formula combines brilliant pigments with silk and botanical extracts for a uniquely long-wearing matte finish, with a deeply hydrating texture." on me, this is the most beautiful bright red-orange. let me add, the packaging on this lipstick is EXQUISITE. it's a hefty black lacquer packaging that surpasses Tom Ford's lipstick packaging! this is one of the reasons why i love TATCHA -- their packaging game is on point.
