Hi Lovelies! So today I actually entered the "Foundation of Style" contest by Purple Lab NYC in Chictopia.  Thought I'd share with you pieces I feel really are the foundation of my style. Here ya go ;):

My Foundation of Style has to definitely be the red lips I flaunt almost every day no matter what outfit I wear. I tend to wear not bright red lipstick, but a burgundy dark red. I feel it gives my whole look an edgy feel. And also, I don’t know if hair could be an accessory (lol), but I feel like my black hair and full bangs, is another part of my foundation of style. Along with that, I mostly wear belts to give my outfit a “fitted” and put-together look. And lastly for my Foundation, it would be my beloved rings — my hands always feel naked without them. I’m currently obsessed with rings haha. So overall, my personal style, although still developing, would be edgy meets girly, sophisticated, and eclectic.

A Purple Lab NYC item I would incorporate into my Foundation of Style is the “Huge Lips Skinny Hips” lip gloss plumper in “Red Sole,” because it not only complements my already signature style of wearing red lipstick, but also could add a new dimension by plumping my lips and creating a pretty & glam shine on top.

Also, on another note, today I actually did some shopping! Ah, so happy with my purchases! I visited the American Apparel in Berkeley, and bought two items: 

First, the same style of socks I got before (ruffles on top) but this time in black and nude.  And second, a new skirt! The chiffon waist skirt in tan -- the material is amazing. That's what I always love about AA, is that you can find amazing fabrics in all their clothing, that you could freely mix and match to make classy and chic looks.  Can't wait to share with you my new purchases :).

Thank you again lovelies for all your sweet comments! And also thank you soo much for all my new and past followers, I seriously appreciate you all so much, and once I hit 100 followers, I'm definitely going to do a giveaway!  :). Hope all your weekends are going well btw! Now I'm off to visit your wonderful blogs and be inspired by your tres chic outfits ;).

Love, KC.

OK, I was so excited when I saw your comment but I have been so behind on blog reading I didn't get to reply right away even though when I saw it I was like "AHhh!". I am BEYOND excited that you are going to see Lauren Conrad. "LC Style" is pretty darn good so far. She's not my absolute favorite but I do like her a lot even if I didn't watch the Hills. And if you don't get a picture with her it will still be awesome to see her, but if you do get a picture (YEAH!!!!!). Can't wait for all the details KC!!!
