There's something fun about wearing a read beanie with red lipstick and a plaid shirt. I think it's because I feel like I'm playing dress up in a look like this. Gone is my usual vintage flair, and my 50's hemlines and old, padded shoulders.

Instead here's a grungy, laid back version of me- one that dabs on red lipstick on the train and steals her boyfriend's hat collection.  Sometimes, you just need to ditch the girly, you know what I'm sayin'?

I'm sorry for that last line.

What are some of your alter egos? I'd love to see post links if you have them!

  1. Red lipstick suits you! :D I have a similar sweater! You look really pretty :)

    Great post!


  2. I wish I could pull off a beanie! It looks great on you, but for some reason it ages me terribly! Maybe I need to pick brighter beanie colors!! =)

  5. I love dressing girly and vintage and quirky, but sometimes I wish I was cooler, yknow? The type of person who wears beanies and has tattoos and a pair of docs!
    You look cute.


  6. I know what you're saying :) I have that same UO sweater and I love the way you styled it! Sometimes gritty is just more fun than girly. But only sometimes!!


  7. This outfit... is amazing. You are a layering god(dess?).

  8. You should wear red lipstick every day of your life. Gorgeous!

  9. I would never think to put some of the things that you wear together, but they always totally work for you! I'm not sure that they would for me...but I do love the concept. (:

  10. Love this grungy, but still slightly girly look. The layering + the red lips is sheer perfection.
