Gimme Some Lip

Lanvin started it, and then Markus Lupfer, and now I really just need me some lips in my life.  I’m sure that in a few months, you’ll be able to get lippy little things at J.Crew, Madewell, and so on and so forth, but right now I’m dying for the Moschino sweater.  Sadly it’s the most expensive.   (I’ll be stalking it, hoping that it goes on sale.)   I recommend keeping the rest of your outfit either understated or all out bright.  I’d pair my lips with boyfriend jeans or a bright mini skirt.   The pin would look particularly amazing on a (baby pink?) tweedy jacket or blazer.

Top Row:  Eyes and Lips Sweater //  Chunky Necklace // T-shirt

Middle:  Earrings (steal!) // Clutch // Pin  // Ring

Bottom:  Compact // Necklace // Sequin Sweater // Flip Flops

    You’re killing it lately with these kitschy sweaters.  I wish those lips were red, though!

    • graceatwood says 8.14.12

      Thanks Tier! I like the red but think the pink is so fun too!!

    That ring is amazing! And, eventually… let’s bet Old Navy will be on it, too.

    Before BaubleBar changed the way they do their vault, I got my hands on the simple silver lip necklace! I love it and wear it a ton! So yes, I’m enjoying the whimsical lips trend right now too 🙂

    Lips! They are like the new “feather” icon for fall.  Have you seen Solange Azagury-Partridge brooches yet?  
    You might like! Jessica 

    • graceatwood says 8.14.12

      that’s an interesting way to look at it! i’m obsessed.

  18. Mady T. says 8.11.12

    I think is hard to pull out lips print cloths…but still it’s an amazing print…


    • graceatwood says 8.14.12

      Yeah, just depends how you wear them. The ring or earrings are a great starting point if you are intimidated.

  19. Nuha says 8.12.12

    ummm it’s like you read my mind girlfriend!  i’ve been obsessed with the markus lupfer shirt, but wanted a possibly cheaper alternative.  Of course, I wasn’t able to find one so I’m still daydreaming about some pouty lips!

    • graceatwood says 8.14.12

      I will let you know if I spy any less expensive versions! x
