Menswear | S T Y L E D O U T F I T S

Since I featured GlossyMiss1 a little while back I can't stop thinking about menswear, and since then there have been numerous posts on the blog, both in features and in the Guest Writer posts, so I've finally gotten around to my turn - a Styled Outfits post with 3 menswear pieces, 2 of which were already on the blog but I wanted to include anyway.
Firstly the Denim Styled Shirt - I'm a bit of a weirdo in that I quite like double-denim, so that's what I ended up going for with this look of the DKNY jeans. I added the Chloe Inspired Sweater and this tiny Voile clutch to add some sort of almost-glamour, however kept it very casual with some simple flats.
My second look features the Independence Shirt (it is still in the Plaza, I just can't for the life of me find the link, sorry!), and I wanted to stick to one of the primary colours on the shirt for the rest of my look. The red seemed obvious once I saw this Balmain blazer sitting in my closet! Totally simple with the black jeans and heels because I think the shirt and the blazer do plenty of talking themselves!
My final look, which may be cheating a little because it's mostly covered, but uses the Multi Color Sweater. I do love the colours in it, but these PPQ trousers and this navy velvet-style jacket seemed like too good a match with it to pass up, so it did end up mostly covered, oh wel, I still like it, maybe I'll repeat an attempt at this one in the future^

Strike The Tones

Bizou Round Pilot Sunnies and Silk Tapered Trousers, DKNY Big Black Wool Scarf, Strike a Pose Charcoal Streetstyle Overcoat and Comfy Sweater Light, Young Hollywood Mary Kate Box Purse and Ashley Bag, Tingeling CĂ©line Shoes

Feathered skirt

Such a stylish evening glamour look from TATTOON for todays feature - it totally makes me forget that the feathered skirt is actually a dress (it was in this summers Couture Tribute release). Anyways, I love it worn as a skirt and I think the shirt and belt style it perfectly into one. The blazer also a great addition. The basic shoes also a good choice - plus some bonus points for having red toenails^

We Wear Hotbuys J U L Y | Gold Tassel Necklace

The last Hotbuy of July, it seems to have passed so quickly! It's the Gold Tassel Necklace, costing 11SD's from Original Future - take a look at how we've done:
And now the poll, as usual it will be open for a couple of days =)

Cinched skirt

GMonster is always on form, and it's true again with this look! The skirt stood out to me and I wanted it immediately! It's actually a the skirts of a LV-styled feminine dress which we can only get from the Bazaar now (it's an It Girls piece), but I feel like it could be worth the search^ Anyway, loved the skirt and the pinstripes are perfect, plus not an easy look to pull off. The PPQ Mules look amazing, I'm gonna need to start wearing them with skirts. The shape of the top is also good, I think it really works with the skirt shaping and the horizontal stripes are definitely doing it with those pinstripes on the skirt^

D O T | Release Review

An amazing beauty release on Monday in the form of a new Dot collection - it's called Bronze, and that homepage ad has totally sold the collection to me, and that was without even seeing it. It might have been good to have a few dolls there wearing the products, but the colour tones alone really do it for me^
So there are basically 5 shades for us - and each comes in lipstick, lip pencil, eyeshadow, shadestick, eye liner liquid and pencil, both mascaras, eyebrow pencil and blush - phew, what a list! But hey, I'm sure we need ALL those products =D
I just posted about dark lips not working on my doll, but these shades are perfect! I haven't done a lot of looking around to find features, so I'll just be using pictures of the products on my own doll - I'm sure most of you will find one of the colours to work because they're just that versatile! On a side note to that, I did buy the Nude Beige Blush because it didn't look too bad when I tried it, but giving it a go again hasn't worked out for me - so definitely try the blush shades a couple of times before getting one I'd say! I bought all the lipsticks, yep and I'm definitely not ashamed to admit it^ I love all the shades and have included two down below. For me the Burgundy Brown was perfect as it's super close to one of my favourites, the Cream Burgundy from Sephora. I also adore the Nude Beige - as you can see below it's super similar to my natural lip colour but adds a little matte effect. I'm totally going to be using this all the time I'm feeling! As fpr eyes - I've gotten into the shadesticks a lot - so I purchased two, the Mocca and the Milk Chocolate both which I think work with my eyes alright. The Nude Beige was just too pale, I can't see it at all on my skin. But I find, for whatever reason, I like the shadesticks more than the eyeshadows - I mean they're the same colours and the shadows are 3SD cheaper ... but I'm too attached, haha! Now what I wish for is these colours with a tad of shimmer, not too much, just like the tiniest amount - it seems I'll never be pleased, but don't get me wrong, I seriously do love this release!
I didn't purchase any of the eyeliners or eyebrow pencils or mascaras, right now I don't feel like I'll use them, but I do think, if the colours are good for you, that the liquid liners would be a good investment to make because they're only 4SD each^

Anyway, what do you guys think of this release? Winner in your books too? Let me know in comments!
