Hey lovelies! I had picked up a couple of new Chanel goodies and thought I incorporate them in this look. I don't typically go for this shade of lipstick but I thought it was fun to mix it up. Chanel Imperial is a beautiful rusty coral shade. I'm not sure even if that's the right description. This is a hard colour to describe and I definitely don't own anything even remotely close to it.

Hope you all enjoying your day. Let me know what you think of this look.

So I went to the Chanel counter this past weekend to check out their setting powder. I just ran out of my MAC blot powder and wanted a chic compact for my purse. I was debating between 50-Peach and 20-beige. They're the same colour except peach has you know, peachy undertones. My SA recommended the peachy one for me and I must say this powder is amazing. And it's so finely milled, definitely a lux feeling to it:

And since I like to treat myself to a Chanel lipstick every once in a while, I browsed through the rouge allure, RA laques and Rouge Coco selection and ended up with Imperial:

And finally, this is the outfit I wore with the Imperial look. I adore ruffles but often they don't work with my full chest, this Le Chateau piece does though. Jacket is by Tristan and America and wide legged gray pants are by Laura. My boots are old school Nine West:
