TB flats and LDR lips

Yes, that was my weekend. When I wasn't in my pyjamas I was breaking in some shoes and sporting some seriously wannabe pouty lips.

The TB Flats

You all know I love my Tory Burch flats. I don't even care that the symbol looks like a Take That dedication. I love them and they are usually very comforable.

When I spotted these on shopbop.com before Christmas I fell in love. They reminded me of a pair of Chanel $600+'s that I had seen in Saks about 18 months ago - a pale nude colour with an elasticated inner edge that from afar looks like a dainty ribbon.



I got them about a month ago and whilst it was love at first sight, my toes revolted. They cried in pain. These shoes made me feel like my toenails were inches too long - a sort of scraping feeling that just feels uncomfortable an hour or two.

I am pleased to say however that I experienced a breakthrough this weekend and they are finally worn and ready to be sported without a face wince. Hurray!

The LDR lips

You all know Lana Del Rey. Well I am borderline obsessed with her.

Whilst I think her music is good I think, if push came to shove, I would rather see Ellie Goulding, Florence & the Machine or Imogen Heap in concert but yet, I am mesmerized when I see a picture of her.

I levy the blame at her lips. They are so full and just brrrrrrrrr......I won't be getting a pair of my own but for fun I decided to draw on some LDR lips this weekend, partly prompted by Tali's post.


The best product I found for this was Maybelline's liner in Toast. You could use this and just call it a day to be honest. It's a lovely liner - not as grey as MAC Stone, similar to Rimmel Tiramisu but far creamier to apply.

I added Illamasqua Sonnet and,some Viva Glam Gaga 2 gloss for a shinier finish.

It was a fun look, You never know maybe I will try stiletto nails next...(joke!)


:)

Hope you had a good one!

  7. Never tried LDR but it looks lovely. Those flats are gorgeous glad they are broken in. I just hate the feeling of shoes before they are worn down.

  9. I couldn't stop looking at her nails. They remind me of those long Barbra Streisand nails from the 60's. Nice to look at, but hard to keep up and get in the way. I couldn't type two words with them. lol

  16. Those shoes kill my feet, I clipped my toenails back to the quick - at least it's not just my sloth toes!

  17. Ugh I hate when cute shoes hurt. The flats are adorable.

  18. The LDR lips look beautiful on you. I agree with you though, I would go see Ellie or Florence over her anytime. I was hoping that one of them would come to Lollapalooza this year but no luck. I'll have to settle on The Artic Mokeys and Bjork

  19. You look gorgeous in this photo, well you do in all of them but your makeup is stunning!

    Also thank you for the info on the Tory B's as I would love to get a pair of Reva's but have heard about the painful toe situation you can get with them so was a little concerned to pay so much for a pair of flats if they're going to torture me!!

    If they relent after a month it may be worth it!

  24. Those look like the perfect shade of nude flats. I've been on a constant hunt for the perfect pair. Thanks for this. Hopefully these don't hurt my toes as they did yours.

  31. Laura,
    Do you wear footies with your flats? I can't seem to last an hour in any brand without them. :( If you do, what are some good/cute footies? Sounds like a great weekend!
    Love,

  33. I have these in black. For me, the problem was breaking in the heel. The leather label in sewed to the sole was my problem. I'd say it took me two to three months to get them fully broken in.

  42. Very cute flats - nice to see them in a nude shade and with a smaller logo; sorry to hear that they were uncomfortable at first though!
    You look lovely with the LDR inspired lips, everyone seems to love LDR's look at the moment, so...who knows, maybe stiletto nails will be the new thing to try? :))

  43. I thought I was the only one that had the "toenails... inches too long" problem with shoes! It is horrible! Glad you broke in your flats - they are cute!

    Any thoughts on the skater dress trend? ASOS has quite a few right now and I think they are adorable!

  53. LOVE your Tory flats. I recently bought the same ones and unlike the TB Reva flats these were comfy right out of the box. I did have to go a half size up. These are mine http://www.flickr.com/photos/39715038@N00/9334382297/
