Blue Crush!

My obsession with cobalt continues.  Years later and it’s still the colour I get drawn to when walking into a space or when approvingly clocking someone’s look. Heck I even painted the door trim in our hall way, part of the walls and a wood ladder to our home attic in it!

It’s obviously an obsession if I take it to the matchy matchy level with blue eyeliner (I never do this!!). I found this one over fashion week and we’ve been best mates since. The colour is a rich dark metallic slick and looks gorge in real life. I got it after a make up artist tried it on me on top of the black liner I was wearing.

I bought two of them because 1. it’s cheap  2.  I’ve wanted a wearable blue liner  and 3. anything I really love get’s discontinued – ever notice that?

ACNE jacket: Consignment. Last seen with gold boots from this post. Try Club Monaco, Joseph or Pop CPH. Similars . Slip dress: Had it for years. Spotted loads of slip dresses on Free People. Bag: Coach. Boots: All Saints. Handcuff necklace: Jennifer Zeuner.  Shades: Ray-Ban
Tip about the liner:

I line with a black pencil liner first THEN go on top with the blue one – just like the make up artist did.  Comes out like a dark metallic cobalt. The combo is ridic and gets loads of compliments.  I tried the blue liner alone without the black underneath and it looked meh – do the combo and see.

Soon as it gets cooler I’m turning this slip dress into a skirt with big knit jumpers on top plus the doc martens or the converses.

Lmk if you get the liner…

      thx Iris – the dress has been in the wardrobe forever

      oh you should still try it though! I think really close to the lash line would look quite striking actually. not a heavy line.

    Cobalt really looks striking on you! You’re lucky, it’s definitely not one of my colors.
