Modern vintage summer style: in the office v.s. out of office

When it comes to modern vintage style, my closet is filled with all kinds of retro clothes. But like every woman, I sometimes also stand in front of my closet spending wasting time thinking about what I want to wear that day. Especially on a summer day in the office. So many modern vintage tropical summer style options, but…not everything is suitable.
On a warm summer day, I always bring a cardigan to the office because although it might be 25 degrees outside, it’s never 25 degrees inside. The same applies to hosiery. I always wear 8 dernier (summer) tights, because airconditioning ruins office life.

Favorite shades of everyday retro chic red

If you’re into retro chic red lipsticks and you want some new shades: this one is for you. So last year I became a huge fan of the retro makeup brand Besame Cosmetics. Still love the brand. Unfortunately, they decided to withdraw their delivery to Europe stockists a couple of months ago. That was actually a huge disappointment, because I had just decided that this was the ultimate brand when it comes to longlasting, highly pigmented red lipstick.

Classic Bollywood hair and makeup inspiration

Going back to the roots today. Oriental meets retro! The typical fifties retro look with winged eyes and red lipstick is obviously my favorite. Especially since it takes me only 10 minutes in the morning. However, I do like to create oriental meets retro looks every now and then. I already showed you some of my oriental meets retro makeup looks a few months ago.

Top 5 must-have lipsticks for every red lipstick addict

Looking at my dressing table, I can see my red lipstick collection is always growing. I haven’t hit the 50 shades yet, but it wouldn’t surprise me if I actually will have 50 shades of red some day. The best part: I actually use them all on a weekly/daily base. I can imagine that people may wonder: Why would anyone need more than one shade of red lipstick. Aren’t they all the same, but just from various brands and obviously a different price category? Well, no. Let me explain to you why and read about my top 5 must-have lipsticks if you’re a red lipstick fan.
