Lippie Love: I’m Ryan Kelley and I’m a lipstick lover.

As you may well know I’m kind of obsessed with lipstick. If I haven’t said it enough lip color is the perfect accessory. Your lippie makes your entire look live and breathe!

A basic nautical striped dress goes from sweet to sassy with a swipe of Kaior Harlem Knight.

Style Secret: For a statement lip color, a matte texture

trumps a glossy sheen. Less is more.

Glam up your girls night look with an electric pink shade. Milani offers their Violet Volt and NYC serves up a similar shade in #405 Blue Rose.

Style Secret: If the voltage on the electric pink is a bit too high, temper it with a dark pink or nude lip liner.

Experiment to find the perfect nude for your complexion. Ladies with deep skin tones like mine, give Milani’s Teddy Bare a shot. Nude looks boast major beauty in both matte and gloss.

Style secret: Going for a bold eye? Nude lips give balance.

Wanna be on trend for fall? Try dark, vampy lips. I’m going insane for Black Radiance’s #5023A and #5023B. A is reminiscent  of chocolate covered cherries while B is more like a dark chocolate.

My lippie love story is an ongoing affair. What are your favorite lipsticks? Are you trying new shades?

REQUESTED! GLOOMY DAY GLAM

Just because the weather is gross doesn’t mean your look has to match! Be functional and fab at the same d@mn time! Opt for classic pieces like the trench, stay comfy in a trendy tomboy look or let your accessories take you back to the blue skies of summer. Dress Dresss to the nines rain or shine.

THE TRENCH

Do I really have to elaborate? No matter if you chose to don a classic Burberry trench (which is an investment piece for budget ballers like me) or a wallet saver version, the mercury on the chic-o-meter will soar despite the low outdoor temps.

Gloomy Day Glam

Tip: Continue your classic look with straight or boot cut jeans and a sleek pair of booties.

TRENDY TOMBOY

Ignite chilly fall days with a subtle but smokin’ tomboy look.  Vintage 90s grunge looks are fitting for grey days as they provide fashion forward warmth and comfort.

Pair a roomy sweat shirt with slightly distressed denim and flat combat inspired boots. Create an autumn inferno if you dare; take that same sweat shirt pair it with a mini and boots that go up-to-there à la Rihanna.

Tip: Keep the shapes and shades of your garments simple and on the darker end of the color spectrum to avoid a Halloween costume vibe. And don’t be afraid to reintroduce your Jordans from yesteryear if they are still in good condition.

SENSATIONAL SCARVES

Scarves in vibrant hues boost your mood and restore summertime cheer. Create a look reminiscent of beach days by repurposing your sarong as an oversized neck scarf. When shopping for new scarves, go for varieties boasting pretty prints and touchable textures.

Gloomy Day Glam2

Tip: Don’t forget your umbrella is a part of your overall look! Instead of the typical tiny size, go for a striking candy color, animal print or whimsical pattern.

How do you glamorize gloomy days?
