the stylist’s notebook | she’s a maneater

30 March 2010

Nothing is sexier than black and red; think Marilyn Monroe meets the new-and-improved, Grease-ified Sandra Dee. The base of the outfit: a slinky, metallic tank tucked into slimming, skin-tight pants. Add a pair of Yves Saint Laurent Tribute pumps in a bombshell patent red, a cascading fringed, chain necklace to accessorize, and dabble on the rather appropriately named Maneater lipstick – a classic, matte rouge – for the finishing touch. It’s all quite simple really: it’s a matter of fit, color, and attitude. Forget scandalous hemlines – this is it.

Once I get my little mittens on this entire ensemble, anyone up for a night of dancing at Bungalow 8?

    I love this ensemble! Absolutely gorgeous, and black and red is such an awesome color combination! I always love your blogs entries, and I want to own every item on this one. 🙂 And if you get some of the items, you might be all the sudden missing them. 😉

    This has always been my favorite go-to sexy bombshell look. A voluminous blowout and you will be sure to break necks 😉 xoxo

    It’s such a wonderful combination. Both the red shoes and red lips make a bold statement along with the amazing necklace. Simple, classic and fashionable!

    I love this outfit. So simple and yet so stunning! I especially love the necklace, I have one that looks like it but I haven’t had the outfit to wear it with yet, now I have! At least something similar 🙂

    How have you been doing? I really missed reading your blog. Now that I have internet access again your blog was the first I had to look at 😉
