"A bit whoreish"

I was channelling my inner rock chick a smidge more than usual yesterday when I wore this to work...

Jacket, tee and leggings - all Topshop, shoes c/o Very.co.uk

The necklace was a gift from the fab Lou Makes and is only £7.50 online! I used to want a treble clef tattoo when i was about 15. It was the first tattoo idea I had that I was like 'oh my god, that would be SO. ME.' I never got round to it, but this lovely long pendant has certainly stirred up some nostalgia... I told myself I'd never get another tattoo as my first one was so bloody painful, so my necklace will have to fill the void for now! 

The red pout is courtesy of Eyeko's Liptastik pen in 'Lip Lover' (£6.50). It has a sort of fruity scent, and stayed put all day. It was moisturising without being wet enough to go all over my teeth, so it's a big thumbs up from me. Alex on the other hand... "It just looks, for lack of a better word... a bit whoreish." He said it so matter-of-factly! He was speaking of red lippy in general, not just me... Not sure how that justifies it, though. It makes it more of an open insult to all of us! BOYS. 

Remember if you use my ambassador code 'E11298' when checking out on Eyeko's site, I'll get 15% commission and if you spend over £15, you get a freebie! Finances are grotesque at the moment, so to anyone that has used my code lately - thank you from the bottom of my echoing purse! ♥

So, any fun weekend plans in store for you? I'm off to the Vintage Festival tomorrow... Or at least I hope I am. I'm looking up train times now and there seems to be some severe shiz going down which is making journeys to London from here far more complicated than usual. Fingers crossed I can find an easier way because I don't wanna waste my day off!

  1. If you think that's whore-ish you should take a walk around my hometown haha!! It's funny you should say it though because I read somewhere that the Eqygtians would advertise blow job services by wearing red lippy!!
    I do think it looks lovely though none the less! Gorgeous outfit too!!

    Love J.

  2. Such a great outfit Gem. Really love how you've worn the leggings.. I've never seen leopard print leggings look good, until now!
    I love red lipstick, I'd wear it everyday if I could. It really suits you. Boys just don't understand :)
    Have fun at the Vintage Festival! xx

  6. Rock n' Roll! You look like a BAMF, not a whore. I'm really digging the red lippy and biker jacket. Hope you manage to get to Vintage Festival, I'm off to a festival myself via London on the train. :3

  7. Love the outfit! Very rock indeed. Your necklace is awesome, I also used to want a treble clef tattoo back in my more musical days. I can barely play the piano anymore now, unfortunately! Haha.

  8. My boy best friend quite bluntly told me this week that the red lipstick I wore on the previous day was "tarty" I thought boys liked red lipstick!

  12. Boys, indeed! I love the red lipstick. It always makes me think old Hollywood rather than Red Light District!

  17. I love your outfit! And there is no way red lipstick is whoreish (as long as your not wearing it with fishnets and thigh high pvc boots!). I like to think of it as Hollywood Glamourish :)

    So jealous you are going to the vintage festival, I really wanted to go but my bank said no :( Hope you have a lovely time (if you manage to get there) :) xx

  23. I love red lippy & leopard & leather! Amazing outfit.
    My boyfriend's the same with all makeup, he doesn't understand bright lipstick or multi-coloured/arty nails... so I think it's just a male thing!

  25. Love the leggings :) I've been trying to find some nice ones like those, I might have schmooz in the the next topshop sale. Red lipstick seems to be totally man repelling or man magnetizing !!! I like it too obvs, I think it's 100% Girl magnetizing anyway haha. Molly x
