I don't own very many maxi dresses and skirts because they are not the most flattering for my short frame and often feel like a ton of fabric, but this one solves both of those problems. This skirt is pleated without being too bulky, and because it is sheer with a short opaque lining, I can still show off a little leg while still being covered up!
While my look is mainly black and white, I added a pop of color with my new Riri Woo lipstick! If you are a beauty addict or Rihanna stan, you know that Rihanna has an upcoming collection with MAC cosmetics and the first release was the Riri Woo lipstick, a retro matte red shade inspired by the popular MAC Ruby Woo lipstick. I am probably one of the few people who has never tried Ruby Woo so I can't compare the two shades, but I do love the Riri Woo! It is a gorgeous, flattering red shade with a matte finish, which I prefer to a gloss finish. As a warning, matte lipsticks show off every crack and peel in your lips, so make sure to exfoliate and moisturize your lips before wearing and you should be good to go!
