When your closet lets you down, it's time to improvise. Scarf as top, dress as skirt, and, well, shoes as shoes ... plus some fabulous lip colour such as ArtDeco Lip Lacquer from the Dita Von Teese collection that the Slovenian ArtDeco team kindly sent me (thank you). I normally prefer lipstick, but this product immediately won me over (actually, it is something like a liquid lipstick providing a glossy, creme finish). It applies like a dream, is highly pigmented (intense colours are a must for me) and it doesn't contain carmine (a pigment obtained from insects), which is important to me as a vegetarian (though it's probably safe to assume most of you wouldn't want to wear insect ingredients on your lips, either). I have to recommend against wearing it in the wind though, unless your hair is short or you're wearing it up. (Note: due to direct sunlight, the colour appears just a tad lighter on the photos than it actually is.)
For the readers based in Slovenia: you can get your ArtDeco products from the online store Moja kozmetika. They're offering you a 10% discount with the code DUCKALICIOUS812 (valid until the end of August).
