OOTD 2/1/2012- Here Kitty, Kitty...

Love today's outfit with the wildcat natasha and the maraschino cherry cafe capris.  The fit is great on these pants, very flattering...wish I'd gotten other colors.


J Crew Natasha in Wildcat - Size 4
Ann Taylor Loft V-Neck Cardigan in Black - Size S
J Crew Wool Cafe Capri in Maraschino Cherry - Size 4
J Crew Skinny Leather Belt in Glazed Hazelnut - Size S
J Crew Juliet Black Patent Pumps

Speaking of great red things, I threw a tube of Poppy King lipstick into one of my most recent orders.  I have searched high and low over the years for a good shade of red lipstick, mostly to no avail.  Poppy King, I'm happy to say, fits the bill.  I also like that depending on how heavy a hand you use, you can vary the shade from sheer to full on color.

Have you tried J Crew's Poppy King?  If so, what do you think?

  2. More scary coincidence ... after hearing so much about Poppy King, I also ordered one in a recent order, sight unseen! I love the cherry cafe capris, such a beautiful color and agree they fit great.

  3. You look lovely as usual!

    I rec'd the lipstick this week and have worn it sheer. Hoping to get a tad bit bolder in the summer, and wear it a smidge heavier, but not too dark. Ooh, unless I'm wearing an awesome pair of sunglasses, with my hair up and am feeling ultra-pretty; then I will apply it heavier and act like I am all that. :)
    Like a JCrew model.. mwah!

    All kidding aside, I would like to find something to plump my lips a bit before applying Poppy King.

    1. Thanks JV!
      I'm working my way up too. I'm used to wearing neutral shades, so this is new to me too.
      Oh yes, I can see you now...everybody will be whispering,"Who is that girl?" "With those lips, she must be somebody!" :o)
      If you find a good plumper, let me know...I have major chicken lips!

  4. I like the cut/fit of the cafe capris as well, but the wool was too rough for me. I did pick up the cotton spring version though, which is equally fabulous (without the itch).
