Streetstyle: Rosie Rittenberry
What drew me to Rosie wasn't the sunglasses, as fabulous as they are, it was the combination of her pale skin and her bright red lipstick. I guess I'm just a sucker for a red lip, and this particular orange-inflected shade is one I simply can't wear. And while we're on the topic of red lips, I'll just say that my two favorites right now are Benefit's "Frenched" (which appears to no longer exist, much to my great dismay, so the link is to a product that looks similar--"Flirt Alert" is the one you want) and Lipstick Queen's "Red Sinner" with a coating of Burt's Bees lip balm with pomegranate oil underneath and over. "Red Sinner" also looks great with Lipstick Queen's "Medieval" on top. "Medieval" is also a great light red for day, in case you want to rock red but don't feel like going all the way during the daylight hours.
Anyway, here's Rosie on her outfit:
"The jacket is my boyfriend's, and it's what I throw on when leaving the house and I don't know what to throw on to match. It just tends to go, in a weird way--I just feel comfortable in it. I think this shirt might be originally from Forever 21, but I got it at a thrift store. I thought it was really pretty. And it's gold."
When you put this on today, did you have a plan?
"I guess a little bit. I try to dress up in my own way every day, because it's how I feel most me."
