You guys know I’m all about crazy color combos, and lately I’ve been really into mixing pink with red … despite what my childhood self would think – 12 year old Courtney hated pink and red together, I remember a friend who would wear a pink and red tee from Limited Too (yes LTD2) all the time and it really bothered me, yikes – looking back maybe I was a little bit color OCD!
Anyways, now that I’m older, more mature and totally more stable (or maybe less? not quite sure) I have found a really big place in my heart for this color combo – and think it’s a little cray I avoided it my whole life long!
With my new found appreciation for Pink and Red comes whole new wardrobe world and fun outfits to explore – like the perfect pairing of my new Red Gigi New York Tote and contrasting Pink Monogramed Leather Lip Tin holder, made for holding your favorite Vaseline Lip Therapy Tin (I love the Rosy one, I wear it under pink or red lipstick)! This collab is totes cute, and together the pair makes for ultimate accessory – you can get your hands on one FREE along with a monogramed lip tin from Vaseline when you spend $100 or more at GiGiNewYork.com until 3/19, or by purchasing the leather holder alone and getting a complimentary lip tin for free.
I’ve learned that a bold tote can brighten up even the most basic of outfits (like this look, where I’m wearing my Boyfriend’s shirt because the color was spot on and because it so comfy & soft). Here’s a trick – Tying a color scarf around this perfect leather showstopper, not to mention combining the cute & complimentary leather Lip Therapy tin holder! Along with the Vaseline Lip Tin, I was able to store all of my essentials in my tote: lots of lipstick, body butter, makeup, sunglasses, eye glasses (four eyes), flats, dry shampoo and a portable charger, #duh.
Oh and if my bag wasn’t already stocked full enough, you can always finalize filling your tote with flowers that you’ve just picked up from the bodega next door and are toting back to your apartment to brighten up your office … or because you’re a blogger and you think a tote full of flowers just looks cute lol – whatever your reasoning, I won’t judge 😉
