I have been avoiding this aspect of my life for a while. You see, I wanted Lipstick and Black Coffee to have a bit more substance than what you might typically expect of a name like that, so I rebelled. I said nope not going to do beauty, fashion or anything of that sort.

The funny thing is, when you meet me, it’s probably the first thing you notice, my sense of style. On the outset, it’s pretty obvious I am “into” that stuff, but that of course, is not all I am about. I have however, finally made peace with divulging into other aspects of my life so here it goes…

I think the way we present ourselves is an introduction/insight (albeit sometimes an incorrect one) to who we are. It’s how we think of ourselves and how we wish to be perceived.

So, I introduce to you ‘Lipstick’s Style’.


Now I’m wondering what I was laughing at?

Tis the season for turtle necks and boots!

I’m not sure whether I want to be happy or sad about this. It’s great because you get dress up warm and get all cosy and snuggle up, but not so great because you HAVE to dress up warm and get all cosy and snuggle up. But before it gets really cold in England or wherever you are in the world, let’s play dress up.

The skirt is from Forever 21*, think the 70’s, in fact the more I think about it, I remind myself of Velma from Scooby Doo,except I’m a 2016 version. The turtle neck is from my trusty store H&M and the thigh high boots are from River Island*.



I feel like there should be no rules in fashion, you can wear whatever you want, however you want, but let’s be real, not everyone can wear what they want and get away with it, unless you’re Rihanna.


Thigh high boots are great for warmth and looking chic. The skirt is a good length for the boots and balances out the colour of the top.


This mustard turtle neck adds the right pop of colour for a dry and dreary day.

Don’t worry I’m not going to stop my other posts, this is just an addition 😉

Hope you like!
