OOTD – Paint-brushed

Hello my beauties!

Astounded by the artworks I watched strolling on 2014 RTW runways, I started looking for an art-inspired piece to don myself, be it covered with graffitis, paint-brushes, or life-sized illustrations. 

When I saw this dress, well, it was the one! Being a statement piece itself, at first I thought I shouldn’t over-accessorize it. But then I tried on another piece of art, my beloved necklace from Asterisco-S, and they looked made for each other. I also tried the orange lips-and-cheeks trend, though I feel funny when wearing lipstick 🙂

Did YOU get yourself an art-inspired piece for this summer? I’d love to know! What about orange makeup?

Tons of love my darlings

    I really do like this orange lipstick on you! but if you don&#39;t feel comfortable wearing it, no need to do so. Lipstick always looks great on photographs but in real life (especially so in the summer) a nice lipbalm is much more practical.<br /><br />The dress truly looks like a piece of art. Is it silk? I&#39;ve tried panting on different materials but so far I have avoided silk because it
