Adventures in paint and lipstick

I wanted to wear this paint splattered rugby shirt, but didn't want it to look like I spent the morning painting my living room, so I figured if I threw on some red lippy I could get away with it... Also, I am wearing navy, black, and brown together = naughty!

Shirt - was my mom's "painting shirt" when I was a kid, thus the paint all over it...
Heart necklace - www.pangs.etsy.com
Pants - Target
Oxfords - thrifted Bass

P.S. This is the first time I've worn lipstick in my life... I am paranoid to the max about it smearing all over my face and teeth.  Also, one of my KG students told me my lipstick made me "look scary... scary like Cruella Daville." Hmmm...

P.P.S I can't tell you the color of my lipstick... the drug store by my house is going out of business so I bought 5 kinds of red lipstick when they were 75% off and just kept layering them until it looked "right"

P.P.P.S Hi mom! Yes, I wear your old painting shirt out in public.

Awesome! I have a t-shirt splattered with paint and deck stain that I wear in public :)
You could add more paint to it to add the the overall look and make it look REALLY deliberate.

My mother has loads of painting shirts since she is the artist type, but they are not as cute.

haha! I definitely think the l/s takes it up a notch.

The other day I wore e/s and my daugher (age 7) asked "what I did to my face."

I kind of love this outfit...it's fun and you're not taking it too seriously...fun, fashion is fun.
i'm impressed with the lipstick...no one ever told me i look like cruella but i feel like i have a mannequin mouth...so i never wear lipstick.

i LOVE the lipstick on you--you look fabulous!!
plus i'm all about rules breaking--brown, black, and navy are perfect together, especially all splattered in paint.
i am still trying to get my mother to give me her painting shirt from college, with the name of a car repair place--hollis auto--printed on the front of it.
