Read My Lips

As you can probably tell by now, my favorite way to finish off every outfit is with a swipe of red lipstick.  I've rocked this retro look every day for the last four years, so it should come as no surprise that I've been lusting over Lulu Guinness' iconic Lips Clutch for quite some time.  However, my college wallet kept me and the bag of my dreams apart-- until eBay intervened.  I'm happy to say I'm now the proud owner of my very own puckered-up purse!!

I decided to take the clutch for a spin when I went out to dinner tonight.

Clutch, Lulu Guinness.  Dress, Tracy Feith.  Jacket, Silence & Noise.  Belt, vintage.  Shoes, BCBG.

I've always thought the color red was best complemeted by black and white- it creates a very crisp, clean look with a little sass thrown in.  To make the clutch the focal point of the outfit, I stuck with a basic black dress and a classic tweed blazer.  

I added touches of red throughout the outfit to balance out the wow-factor of the Lips Clutch.  A red and gold fly brooch pinned to my jacket and a skinny leather bow belt lent the right amount of retro while simple pearls kept it classy.

Belt, vintage.  Brooch, H&M.  Pearls, vintage.

I received too many compliments to count on this purse- proof that it was a good purchase!  The only complaint I have is that it's too small to tote around on a day-to-day basis.  It's definitely not a bag that will go with every outfit, but at least I know that when I do wear it out I'll definitely be noticed!
