She Comes Out at Night

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

One of my all time favorite shows from Fashion Week was Proenza Schouler. I loved the dark sheer accents on the clothing along with the dark purple, almost black, lipstick that really contrasted with the models skin tone. Exactly what a girl who only comes out at night would look like. Dark, mysterious, but oh so cool.

Speaking of a girl who would only come out at night! Here's a candid of me, shot by photographer Rj Shaughnessy. This photo was taken before I left for holiday in Asia.Cannot believe how pale I was. I have a feeling my slight tan from my recent vacation will be fading. Anywho, I'm kinda diggin the vampy result of my portrait. Now I just need some of that Proenza Schouler lipstick and run out into the night.

perfect fall looks. i love that the collection really played on what's considered to be girly items like the babydoll dressed and undone hair & makeup but that lipstick really brought it all together.

I love that collection,Proenza Schouler always my fav . brand, they always came out with a new style but it's good. and I love the lipstick soo bad but look like it's not good if I'm wear that, consider my skin is not really white . lovely post and have a great days :))
ps : you still look damn good even though you look pale :Db

You should try to paint a bit darker your lips: you might wear good in it!

Beautiful picture. I think there was too much flash and that is why you look white. ;)

Really cool picture! I love how pale skin can be very edgy, like Proenza, and also can take on a pure and vintagey look.

I actually hadn't seen the collection until now,and I love that black dress with the sheer areas, it's simplistic but has that bit of edge.
