Alternative Curves: Black (ok, actually dark purple) lipstick

This month’s Alternative Curves theme is black lipstick, which is something I love. But while putting together an outfit, I realized that I couldn’t find my black lipstick, so I decided to go with dark purple instead. I’ve been meaning to get a good-quality black lipstick anyway, so if I find one within the month, I’ll do another post.

Crop top: Xhilaration via clothing swap (actually a straight size top that fits me like a crop top), skirt: Elementz – thrifted, jacket: Domino Dollhouse, shoes: Buffalo Exchange, earrings: Sadie Green’s, mood necklace: Claire’s, tattoo choker necklace and bracelet: eBay, spike wristband: Hot Topic, spike and stud wristband: So Good, skull ring: Torrid, lipstick: NYX Wicked Lippie in Betrayal

I got the skirt on my most recent trip to Savers, which is seriously the best thrift store ever. It’s a bit more expensive than the average thrift store, but they also have the best plus size selection I’ve ever seen.

After taking these pictures, I realized the jacket is a different shade of black than the skirt. Oops! If I wear this outfit again, I’d wear my white fuzzy bolero (which you can see here) instead.

    • Thanks! 😀 Oh man, I remember those wide leg pants and Roxy sweatshirts.

      The shoes were a lucky find–I actually got two pairs, one in silver and one in gold. They’re not comfortable enough for doing much walking, especially since there’s no strap on the back to keep my feet from falling out, but they’re great for parties and outfit pictures.

  1. ugh!! I hate when my blacks don’t match!! haha

    this is great, such a perfect “weirdo babe” vibe happening!

    Those earrings are frickin’ fantastic!! I’m lusting after them!

  2. I’ve heard great things about the Portland Black Lipstick Company 🙂 Also your hair looks awesome styled like this! 😀
