While I was up in Shasta I got pretty bored at times, and my weakness is that when I'm bored I like to shop. So I looked through all my favorite online stores, but since I am currently unemployed, there wasn't much to spend.... here is what I picked up.
1. Beauty Forever's Fetch Beanie
2. Lime Crime Lipstick in Airborne Unicorn
3. NastyGal exclusive Half Moon Magic Shades by Le Specs
Back in my "scene kid" days, my fashion/style icons were Audrey Kitching, Hanna Beth and Jeffree Star (who's weren't?). All three still very much around today. Jeffree Star now has his own label, Beauty Forever. I first found this beanie on tumblr, and fell in love with it. Gretchen Wieners knew what she was doing when she tried to make "fetch" happen in the movie Mean Girls, because everyone can quote Regina George: "Gretchen, stop trying to make 'Fetch' happen". When I first wanted to buy it, it was sold out. When surfing through Karmaloop, I found out that they had just gotten it in stick and I was stoked! I will definitely be wearing this beanie tons while still in San Francisco for the summer, because we don't always have the best summers, and then again in New York once fall stars rolling in. It will look great with a pair of back skinnies, a dark purple crop top, and some leather booties.
If you follow me on twitter you would have seen my tweet about wanted lipsticks in all colors of the rainbow. Lime Crime has lipsticks in so many fun vibrant colors, including blue and yellow! I decided just to get this one color first to make sure the quality of the lipstick is okay, plus I've been wanting a nice purple shade for months, but never found the right one. Lime crime lipstick goes on really well, it feels a little oily at first, but then dries and you forget you even have any on. I don't know yet how long it lasts, but I will make sure to let you guys know once I do. So far, I am planning on buying some more of their lipstick colors! Urban Outfitters has them for sale, but are selling out quick, I got this one from Karmaloop, who also sell all colors!
You don't know how many times I have put these babies into my cart without buying them, and finally went for it. I never liked buying sunglasses online, scared that they wouldn't suit my face (returning online purchases is such a hassel, I always think about my purchases to make sure I will like them to avoid it). I have been wanted clear sunglasses ever since I saw the Wildfox Couture bell air frames in clear. I never got them because 1) they are really pricey, and 2) they were sold out everywhere! These guys are amazing though. The bright colored frames are so much fun, and they fit/look amazing on! Also, the price is perfect, $60 sunglasses > $300 sunglasses.
