I Am Just A Visitor Here

I seem to be very into parking lots lately. They are photographic background fodder like any other site and I'm a bit bored with all the nature shots. Also, since it is summer there are a number of student parking lots that are virtually empty--so don't worry about my safety, cars aren't exactly zooming by.
I finally got some lipstick, after blabbing about it for weeks. Being extremely cheap I decided to get the freebies at make up counters instead of buying colors I wasn't sure I would like. I now have in my possession two darker, purple-red hues and one bright cherry red. Having no shame can definitely have its free perks...parking, lot, cement, asphalt, concrete, fashion, style, theclotheshorse, the, clothes, horse, daily, outfit, red, lips, old, hollywood, nautical, chic, parisian, blueparking, lot, cement, asphalt, concrete, fashion, style, theclotheshorse, the, clothes, horse, daily, outfit, red, lips, old, hollywood, nautical, chic, parisian, blueparking, lot, cement, asphalt, concrete, fashion, style, theclotheshorse, the, clothes, horse, daily, outfit, red, lips, old, hollywood, nautical, chic, parisian, blueparking, lot, cement, asphalt, concrete, fashion, style, theclotheshorse, the, clothes, horse, daily, outfit, red, lips, old, hollywood, nautical, chic, parisian, blue

I like how the lipstick and the red shoes tie together an otherwise monochromatic look, literally from head to toe. Very nice indeed. :)

crispybenfranklin said...

Red lipstick and red shoes are two of my favorite things right now. I love that skirt, too... Mayhaps I have found something to spend my Forever 21 gift card on.

enc said...

Thanks for reassuring me that you're not in danger. Your red lipstick looks brilliant, and I love this stripey top.

Fashion Addict said...

you look great in that red lipstick.

Nadine said...

Lovely location :)... parking spaces seem to be a real inspiration.

Ashe Mischief said...

I've always wanted to get free samples at make-up counters, but never am quite sure how to do it... (I hate when the don't give me any even when I'm BUYING something).

That red lipstick looks really great with your hair color.

pretty face said...

Good idea!

I've been hankering after some bright pink lips for ages but I can't bring myself to spend £8 on the PERFECT lipstick...

chelsea said...

i love the lipstick! i can't wait to see the dark colors on you as well...

Lauren! said...

Lovely! I adore red lipstick. And I'm quite impressed by your photos. The parking lot backdrop is a great success.

Cupcakes and Cashmere said...

great shots. i'd love to see you in the cherry colored lipstick!

K.Line said...

Honestly, R, you are more grown-up sophisticated with every post. That lipstick is a super colour and is beautifully applied. You should wear it all the time (but only if you want to turn heads!)

CoutureCarrie said...

Awesome pics!!

Ashlyn said...

I love those red shoes! I remember seeing them on the urban outfitters website and drooling over them.

Cassie Casserole said...

wow, amasing pictures!

Brittney-Elizabeth said...

free stuff rocks!

thefashionmaven said...

i think the red lipstick is like icing on your fashion "cake" - looks awesome!

Savvy Gal said...

still adore your pics. i adore red lipstick but can't seen to commit myself to one. never able to find the right color except for a chanel red which they discontinue, why do they do that????

softspoken said...

the lipstick is fab on you. i always feel a little in drag when i try - not that that's always a bad thing :)

Claudia said...

Omg. I love your blog, so I put you on my blogroll. You really inspire me. :)

Allure said...

You're brave! I can't wear red lipstick during daylight, because I get the feeling everybody is looking at me :S

yulanda said...

Great photos and I love the lipstick.

miss milki said...

Thats a great shade of red, it looks perfect with your skin tone. Go back and buy the full lipstick! :) I really like your skirt too. Great outfit.

Luna said...

Noël said...

Yes yes! I love the lipstick color and the skirt as well!

Grace said...

You look very elegant. Love the lipstick shade!

Ca said...

Bright cherry red lipstick is wonderful! And haha, isn't the parking ground hot due to the sun?

Sunniva said...

I always love the themes of your photo shoots, and this is definitely no exception..such a great and original idea to have it in a parking lot. Red lipstick looks so good on you! You remind me so much of parisian women in these photos..very chic and wonderful!

rachael said...

what brand is that lipstick? it looks like it has the perfect colour/texture..

WendyB said...

What great photos. Nice red lips too.

Vain and Vapid said...

I love the parking lot background and your new lipsticks, make up counter freebies make the world go round...

Spandexpony said...

love that the lipstick matches the shoes!

Muirin said...

Love the color of the lips! It's amazing to see someone actually pull off the whole red lip look. I've seen it done poorly many times, but this is just lovely.

And there is nothing wrong with being clever and frugal. At all. :)

copperoranges said...

i love the last one! my lips are too full for daytime red lipstick. :(

Doriz Jeltzin said...

I like the lipstick, and the parkinglot background is a great idea!

fashionistadiary said...

Miss Karen L said...

Now that is one awesome red lipstick! The purple red lipsticks sound intriguing! And as always your outfit is lovely!

Shen-Shen said...

I love these parking lot shots! That last picture is kinda hot, if you ask me.

pinup_girl said...

Lipstick certainly suits you.

Farren said...

I love that lip color! what is it? It looks gorgeous on you! YOu should definitely buy it when the sample runs out. But, samples are generally pretty big when it comes to ilpsticks. I know the Clinique samples I have are pretty much the same size as the full sized ones, just with cheaper packaging.

Jenny H. said...

love it.
and yeah free make up is always a treat :)

Fashion Is Poison said...

Your first picture is fantastic, I love how clean/graphicy it looks. You definately have a photographic eye.

I always forget about lipstick. I should really get some of that super-last stuff because that's one of the main reasons I don't use it. I'm a bit of a perfectionist and I'd suck at reapplying.

montypython101 said...

i love the pops of red in ur outfit. it kinda reminds me of this print i hav of picadilly circus that's black and white but the double-decker buses were bright red. so cool!

Stephie said...

Sampling is not a sin, it's our right! And yes, I have no shame too (:

Miss White said...

These graphic shots are a wonderful contrast to your usual style, love them!

yumiko said...

you look lovely with red lipstick, especially since your shoes are matching))

CULTURE CREATORS said...
