Steal or Splurge

Jesse L Brooks


Our Steal outfit showcases a quirky shirtdress by Victoria Beckham, decorated in chic little lipstick tubes, cut in a classic and flattering silhouette. We accessorized with gold platform slide-on sandals by Veronica Beard, sassy lip drip crystal earrings from Texifornia, a darling SUKUTU acrylic lipstick box purse from Amazon and a couple of coats of Jones Road's volumizing mascara.

On the Splurge side, we went more laidback with some luxury items that will leave you swooning. Starting things off with a jeans and top combo that dare to go bold. Made from cotton jersey, this high-neck sweatshirt by Loewe is printed with juicy red lips that recall the puckered mouths on the house's Fall/Winter 2022 runway gowns. We paired it up with classic skinny-cut Mother jeans, which never go out of style. We wanted to keep the glamour train rollin' with our accessories and that is just what we did. Manicure aficionados will be besotted by these sandals from Loewe. They're made from smooth leather with statement nail polish heels for 80mm elevation.  Next we tossed in a fun lipstick printed YSL clutch, bejeweled Betsey Johnson drop earrings, gradient Kate Spade cat-eye sunglasses and a fiery red lip courtesy, of Lancome. No matter which ensemble speaks to you more, either of these striking looks are perfect for celebrating one of the beauty industry's most beloved products.
