In Defense of Yellow Lipstick: embrace the J.LO in you!

Although I consider myself a fashionista, there are some fashion and beauty trends that I would never ever wear.
a) Because it’s a ghastly/ ridiculous/stupid/ ugly trend
b) Because I’m simply not brave enough to wear it

 
Yellow lipstick falls under the latter category. We’ve seen a lot of bright lipsticks on the runway this season. Apart from yellow, there was bright green (oh my!), blue (jeez!), orange(beauty!) and fuchsia (hell yeah!). They all look absolutely fabulous and oh-so cool, but still I’ve only dared to put on fuchsia lipstick so far. (Correction: I am IN LOVE with my fuchsia lipstick!)

Why is that? I mean, just look at J.LO in her new Video “ Live It Up“. She looks so beautiful and diva-ish with her yellow lipstick!

Why then can’t I give this colour a go? My subconscious keeps telling me I would look like a fool and that people would stare at me and think I’m an idiotic wannabe…I am just not brave enough to face my insecurities. I am not brave enough to take a fashion-leap forward. Which is a total shame, since yellow lipstick is breathtakingly gorgeous!

Maybe we all just have to face the truth: not all fashion and beauty trends are made to be worn outside fashion shows and photo shoots. It’s a sad thing. But it is the truth.
Still, one question remains: is yellow lipstick one of them? What do you think? 😉

Jump in that jumpsuit, Girls!

When most people think of Spring fashion, they immediately think of flirty dresses, cool shorts and peplum skirts. Although I absolutely adore all these cute items, I can often be a bit tired of wearing these typical Spring outfits. And I’m guessing you (as a fellow fashionista) feel the same way. So why not try an amazing jumpsuit instead? Literally everyone seems to be jumping for the jumpsuit this season: Great designers like Balmain or Jason Wu and stars like Beyonce, Jennifer Lawrence or J.LO. I especially love the Miley Cyrus-jumpsuit look (although I can’t really be objective here, since she and I have the same hairdo, so I will always think that everything she wears is spectacularly high fashion! 😉 )

The stylish options are endless! I absolutely love jumpsuits with a sexy plunging neckline or a provocative open back. That’s what makes jumpsuits so much fun: you can show some skin, but it will never ever look slutty. On the contrary, you will be the epitome of cool and chic, a Bond-girl par excellence! Other very cool jumpsuits ideas: strapless (the Jennifer Lawrence look!), accentuating your waist with a belt ( look at the Jason Wu and Balmain collections!) or a jumpsuit with sleeves (rock it like Beyonce!)

I am normally not the kind of woman to jump (pun fully intended) to conclusions, but this time my rash conclusion is totally justified: Buy that jumpsuit, Ladies! You can thank me later 😉
