Red Medusa ft. Thistle & Spire

Another piece that Thistle & Spire sent me was their Medusa Bodysuit in crimson. It’s the perfect piece to wear as lingerie or on a night out.

My sunglasses are the New Wave sunglasses from Saint Laurent. The bodysuit is the Medusa Bodysuit in Crimson from Thistle & Spire. My pants are the Skinny Vinyl Trousers from Raey. My bag the Crescent Clutch from Understated Leather. And my shoes are the Teddy heels from Saint Laurent.

Like A Rolling Stone

Band tees have been a staple of my wardrobe for as long as I can remember. No matter how old I get, I don’t really see them disappearing from my closet. I would also like to point out that I only wear band tees from bands that I actually listen to.

I went for a super cat-eye look with my Lily sunglasses from Saint Laurent. My Rolling Stones tee is from Daydreamer. It’s a one size fits all situation, which means it’s super oversized on me (just how I like my tees). My jeans are secondhand Trashed Freebirds from OneTeaspoon. I accessorized with my Engraved Dagger Necklace from The Great Frog, the medium Barbara bag from The Kooples, and some rings I picked up from a family of Native American silversmiths at a swap meet when I first moved to Arizona.

Speaking of things that happened when I first moved to Arizona, a big part of why I moved from LA was to improve my quality of life. I remember wandering around a Nordstrom and seeing these studded Elegant boots from Givenchy and I promised myself that one day I’d be in a position where I could actually afford them. Fast forward to almost three years later, I was still super obsessed with these boots and was finally able to buy them (secondhand of course). I have to stop myself from wearing them every single day, so they were definitely a good investment for me.

Review: Tom Ford Lip Color Matte

Disclaimer: I received the Tom Ford Lip Color Matte free and complimentary from Influenster and Tom Ford in exchange for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation. All of the thoughts and opinions in this review are my own.

The Review

When I first tried this lipstick, I didn’t even realize that it was supposed have a matte finish. The formula is so creamy that I was able to wear it all day on my dry, chapped, winter lips. It contains hydrating soja seed extract, Brazilian murumuru butter, and chamomilla flower extract.

I was gifted this lipstick in the shade Casablanca. It’s kind of a mauve-y pink. It’s just a few shades darker than my natural lip color (it actually matches my hyperpigmentation spot perfectly), so it adds color without being overwhelming. I think it would definitely look more pink on darker skin tones.

The bad news is that Tom Ford beauty products, includinare not cruelty free or vegan. While I couldn’t find any information on their actual website about the company’s stance on animal testing, I did find an email they sent to Ethical Elephant about it. Basically, they stated that they only allow their products to be tested on animals where required by law (read: China). They also stated that none of their products are certified vegan, but that some of their products do not contain any animal-derived ingredients. However, they wouldn’t specifically name any products in the email.
