As is often the way with me, I was briskly trotting straight ahead, when I spotted something from the corner of my eye. And the other day it was this fabulous wool mix biker jacket from H&M. Its great, its warm, and its £25.
I wore it the very next day, with indigo skinny jeans from Uniqlo J+ (these ones have a high poly content, so don’t lose their shape), a white Primark vest, a dusky pink H&M long sleeve top and black Kurt Geiger Willow ankle boots (old).
I didn’t plan to put dusky pink with the black biker, but that’s the top I grabbed first and I liked them together. To continue my “soft pink with black biker” combination, I wore Loreal Colour Riche lipstick in 302, Boise Rose. A very pretty pale rose pink (Husband really likes it), that isn’t candy pink. Yuck. I like to eat candy, not wear it. I think pink is one of colours you must be most careful in choosing shades of, don’t you agree? I like pretty, not Hello Kitty (ha ha ha, oh God, I am actually really tired today – sorry!!).
Another Loreal Colour Riche product I wear a lot, which is also a “cool” toned pink (which works best on me) is the Loreal Rose Bagatelle nail polish. Slightly greige, but pink, if that makes sense. I love it on my toenails. Here is a review of the Rose Bagatelle polish.
(These are not my nails – mine are dire, despite Ann Wornout’s best efforts to help me)
The perfect fingernail polish for me is OPI Passion, a sheer pink, like the classic French manicure pink. I first bought it for my wedding and have worn it ever since.
