Fashion Friday: Bardot Alice Lace Body-Con Dress

I feel like I’m a lot more comfortable with makeup than I am fashion. I’m still perfecting my person aesthetic when it comes to clothes, and I think that part of it is caused by my general discomfort with my current weight. Accessorizing is so much easier (and more forgiving) than actual clothes. Still, as I’m searching for pieces for my Fashion Friday installments, I am always drawn to lace and things that are vintage-inspired. That’s probably why I’m now obsessed with the Bardot Alice Lace Body-Con Dress which is available at Nordstrom for $149.

I love that this dress is sexy but mysterious. The geometric cutouts are fascinating and remind me of Art Deco art and architecture from the 1920s. Also, the nude fabric and black lace work so well together. If I had a different body, I would absolutely buy this one. The only thing that I don’t love is the high neckline. I would much prefer a scoop neck.

Would you wear this piece or do you have a favorite vintage-inspired brand to share? Be sure to let me know your thoughts in the comment section!

MAC Lipstick: Ruby Woo

It’s starting to feel truly Autumnal in Cincinnati, and I am so excited! This is my very favorite season. It always puts me in the mood for soup, knitting, cardigans, and…red lipstick. There’s something about cooler seasons that causes people to wear heavier makeup, and I’m no exception. Autumn and Winter are the months where I typically wear bolder lip colors like reds and berries. Recently, I received one of the most iconic red lipsticks on the market: MAC Ruby Woo. This product is sold from MAC stores and select retailers for $18.50.

There’s a reason that this lipstick has become iconic – it’s very easy to wear. MAC lipsticks are long-lasting without causing too much dryness. They’re extremely opaque and easy to apply. Also, there’s a great blue undertone to this red which will enhance the whiteness of your teeth. Now, I’ll admit that this one probably works better on cooler skintones because of the hint of blue. Thankfully, that works well for me. The finish is also very matte, which just makes this look super chic with some vintage pin-up vibes. This is definitely one of my favorite red lipsticks!

Have you tried this one or do you have a different favorite red lipstick? Be sure to let me know in the comment section!
