Hello darlings, hope you're having a lovely and happy #rtcommunityday today! Which piece of RT Merch are you rocking today?
So once again, my #RTBOX hasn't arrived in time for RTCommunityDay... and I styled the previous shirt last month... so I've decided to style the shirt before it. The #RTBOX exclusive RWBY Chibi shirt.
I hate to say it but at first glance this was probably my least favourite shirt we've got out of the #RTBOX. The strange mint/turquoise coupled with fuchsia pink was an odd choice... but when I decided to take up the challenge and style it I learned to really love the colour clash! I wanted to avoid trying to pair this shirt with anything black as the temperature is rising (even in Scotland!). White is not a colour/shade I ever really wear, but when I matched this RWBY Chibi shirt with white jeans, I was converted!! I loved really experimenting with colour and pattern, and I think the Desigual scarf and turquoise bracelet (top right) were cute additions. I popped on a pair of white sunglasses to match in with the white theme too. Perhaps some silver,white gold, turquoise or pink sapphire jewellery would bring this outfit up a notch for going out to dinner? Shoes wise? I went for some pink sneakers, but some cute converse or vans would be great too. And to jazz it up a little, swap out for some silver toned sandals, or pink courts!
As for the lipsticks, I had fun with my favourite pink shades to make the pink on the shirt really pop! All shades are by Urban Decay (my other obsession). Top one is Ex-Girlfriend, a nude rose with pink shimmer; which is a great one for lipstick beginners as it's not too out there but at the same time adds a little something. The middle shade is Firebird, which is a gorgeous deep fuchsia cream (not for the feint-hearted!) and the bottom shade which I wore is Big Bang: a bright pink sparkle with enough glitter to take your face from cute to bloody fabulous with one swipe.
So there you have it! This shirt isn't half as bad as I thought! Being able to put myself out of my comfort zone and wear colours I don't usually reach for was really refreshing! I hope you like the look and you're inspired to try colour clashing or trying out new colours too!
