black

top: maje | shorts: lifewithbird | clutch: givenchy | watch: michael kors

my very generous parents returned from europe this week bearing incredible gifts, including this maje top and givenchy clutch. i have worn the top 3 days in a row now and the clutch hasn't really left my... clutches (ha) since it arrived.

on a beauty note, i dabbed the inner corners of my eyes with nars eyeliner in santa monica (white). i found that it created a somewhat dewy/glowy effect and "opened" my eyes up. a white eyeliner is so much fun to play with. instead of your usual black, the white really creates a different, even ethereal, effect on the eyes. also, this nars eyeliner is almost impossible to rub off!

on my lips is nars pure matte lipstick in volga. really into matte lipsticks at the moment as they are a bit more subtle and a more interesting texture. i absolutely love this aubergine colour - it is the perfect dark purple without being too vampy.
