With My Big Black Boots and an Old Suitcase

So I think the bag is darkening. I do. And it only needed 2 leather wipes last night as opposed to 6 the day before. I’m going to stop oiling the inside of the flap so I can watch my progress. But I will basically be spending the day today holding it away from my jeans. I am SUCH a goober. Last week, I noticed a dark spot across the bottom back edge of the bag and I cleaned it off for the most part, but you know what did it? THESE JEGGINGS*. I just didn’t think about it. I’m normally very smart about things like that, but I spaced. And then I did it again today. Oy.

We got to wear jeans today! Yay!~ Because we have to move a bunch of boxes out of a conference room this afternoon. Boo.

I always think “I can’t wear red lips”, but I’m wearing it today and looking at the pics I so can. It just has to be a good skin week, ha!~ I’ve got on Cover Girls Outlast Lipstain (you know I love them!) in #440 and I’ve topped it with the sheer pineapple juice gloss from Bath and Body Works (which is just gold shimmer, no color, and I love it, and I think they discontinued it.)

*They are dark wash and I’ve never washed them. I wash jeans when they can walk themselves to the washer and not before. Part of that is because I am lazy, and part of that is because it makes your clothes last longer to wash them only when they really need it. Underpants and are excluded from this theory.

You can definitely do the red lips! And those jeggings are awesome :o)

I don't think I have enough presence of mind to remember to keep a purse away from myself!

Wow, such a cute bag! So sorry your pants bleed on it, I hate when that happens and I never think about it either until it is too late. Thank god you got it off though.

Oh and you can totally pull off red lips. Very pretty!

Much love,
Amy

Love the starry shirt with the scarf, which then reminds me of nebulas!

I LOVE Everclear. Were you listening to them when you made this post?

Nebulas!~ Awesome. I didnt see that but now I do.

Jamie, Michelle, it was on the radio this morning. I love them too!~ My Everclear Cds got stolen when my car was broken into last year and I need to replace them. Also, thank you thank you for your kind words yesterday. Made me WEEK.

My jeggings did the same thing when I first wore them. My hands would have blue spots on them if I pulled on them or touched them, but I love them so I will deal with the blueness.

I am with you on the laundry thing!

I really like that shirt with the scarf--the mix of black and white patterns is especially pleasing!

WendyB said...

Wait...are these the red lips? LOL. You can go bolder!

Shopaholic said...

I've never heard of jegging rub off... doh!
Great red lips, I always think I can't wear them either, but gonna try again now x

Ok now that I've finally remembered what song that is, I can comment :P

I'm glad the bag is behaving! It's so lovely- I love the shape the most. You and no red lips? You have fair skin and dark hair- you're supposed to take advantage of red lips!

I love the scarf and blouse together. Good combo.

I hate it when dark colored denim rubs off on other things. I once left a mark on a wall that I was leaning against at a party. Oops.

Peaches and Cream said...

Wow, this outfit is seriously awesome, I love everything about it. I want everything that is in it. Seriously.

Red lips are a major yes.

Plus, I am amazed at your commitment to fashion. This bag/oiling/jegging thing sounds like way too much effort for me!
