ootd: oxblood and black

Hello, hi!

I hardly post an outfit of the day the same day as I'm wearing it. I don't know why, it just feels weird. lol.. I guess today is special :) I took the pictures straight after a launch I attended at Hemingways Hotel's @ The Venue. The place is just opposite our studios. I've said it numerous times that being a journalist doesn't require me to dress formal. Most days I wear flats, but today I decided to wear my current favourite heels. A pair of studded courts from Foschini.

textured black peplum is from here, ox blood red/ maroon pants are from Legit, Black studded court shoes are from Foschini. Bag from Becker Boutique, gold neckpiece also from Foschini

What would my post be without a selfie? nothing! lol...I don't wear any eye make up because I wear prescription contact lenses. Eyeliner and mascara always stains the lenses leaving a cloud-like residue. I realized that after throwing away a lot of lenses that got stained to a point of no repair :( sad sad sad! So I can't wear eyeshadows without eyeliner, that would look weird. I have on my favourite foundation. The dream matte mousse and one my many Ralo Lippis. I use a black Opal brown eyeliner on my brows. Maybelline fit me in Cafe Cafe 30 concealer for 'cleaning'.

Enjoy the rest of your day.
