fringed velvet

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a look here! Haven’t been wearing fun makeup much, eh, nothing new. I’m out of liquid liner so that’s kind of contributed to it, but personally I think this look works nicely without it!

Yesterday I wore Bone, Fringe, Silk, and Velvet from the Kat Von D Metal/Matte palette and Specter from the Urban Decay Moondust palette (over Too Faced Glitter Glue) on the lid. My mascara is Too Faced Better Than Sex. My inner corner and face highlight is Pink Heart from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Moonchild palette (for the inner corners, I use NYX Jumbo Pencil in Cottage Cheese as a base to make it brighter).

On my face I’m also wearing the Elf Contour Palette, Benefit Rockateur boxed blush, and TheBalm’s Cindy-Lou Manizer as a topper for more glow. My lipstick is No Angel from Marc Jacobs (definitely one of my favorite nudes)!

Help! Today is my 29th bday and I'm going to a concert of one of my favorite bands tomorrow night with friends and I don't know what to wear? I plan to go shopping but what would Harry wear?

WOOOOOO BOY! This is the kind of ask I live for you have come to the right house. C&C FASHION Factory am I right?!

Okay sorry. Let’s get down to business. Birthday outfit AN concert outfit, this is v v important. We would first like to emphasize that wearing what makes *you* feel sexiest is the most vital part in all of this. Then of course to consider What Would Harry Wear?

1) Pink - the shade of ‘millenial pink’ Harry is so fond of at the moment is one of the hottest colors around. His album art featuring flowers also plays into the current trend of floral prints. Perhaps adorning yourself in a pink floral dress like this one from Forever 21?

2) Hawaiian shirts - I think there’s a way to make this work for you. Depending on the band you’re seeing, this could really work tie at the front with high-waisted jeans and some high-top trainers. Go for more toned down colors though and it might also make this more wearable. Just make sure it’s unbuttoned down to your navel to really show off the goods a la Harold.

3) Bows! Bows! Bows! - neck ties are actually all the rage right now and Harry certainly seems to love what my friends call A Neck Situation (AMAS 2015 yellow bolo, SNL Pink Gucci Pussy Bow, etc). Find either a stand alone pretty scarf to tie with something simple like a chambray (unbuttoned too deep) or find a shirt featuring a neck-tie/bow/scarf. 

4) Stevie Nicks - I actually feel very close to Harry when I dress like cultural, fashion, witch, and general Life icon Stevie Nicks. She’s his favorite person, and dressing like her has never been easier and more fun. Giant bell sleeves and a long skirt and fringe and VELVET?! Give it all. Also would work great for a concert. 

Whatever you end up wearing, keep us posted! We want you to feel amazing and I hope this helps!

The elusive “Wishing” fabric 

Originally said to be made exclusively for the 1986 musical “Phantom of the Opera”. Woven in India and hand dyed/printed in England, this silk fabric comes from a small husband-and-wife shop outside London. They collect antique fabrics and trims as well as reproducing elaborate materials, and they’re a favourite among film and stage designers. No wonder this specific stripy/floral rococo fabric has appeared in many movies and TV series, as well as on stage.
