Skippy Says: LYLIF review (Skippy Reviews)

When I was younger, I always shied away from wearing red and orange because I was told they didn't look good on redheads. You know I say to that now? Pshaw. Oh that's right, I went there. P-shaw. Orange is now at the top of my favorite colors list, so when LYLIF contacted me about picking out an item from their shop to style, it's no surprise I immediately gravitated to the orange houndstooth scarf. I love orange. I love houndstooth. And you all know how I love a good scarf.

Although LYLIF carries a whole beautiful range of clothes, they focus on unique and trendy accessories and jewelry for women at affordable prices. As you can probably tell from the fact that all of my clothes are bought on sale, I'm a cheap immigrant I am all about affordable prices. If you like the scarf, make sure to check them out, they have a lot of adorable accessories that would make great little gifts!

  3. Your hair! I love it! I think I prefer the short length on you - it looks SO cute!

    Cute outfit as always, and I'm so happy you started wearing orange. I hate those "redhead color rules" and I saw P-Shaw to them too!

  11. Coveting those boots. Are they sort of a reddish shade or more brown. Either way - LOVE. You have magic Anthro powers, I swear.

  40. Your hair looks fantastic Inna, I love how it frames your face and the length matches your Sassy attitude :) The scarf is beautiful too, bright houndstooth? I love it!

    ReplyDelete
  41. SQUEEEEAL! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that scarf! Whoever told redheads that they're not allowed to wear orange needs to have their heads checked. Then again, I apparently have authority issues, so the minute someone tells me not to do something, I immediately do exactly that. Because, as we've discussed before, I'm a petulant three-year-old at heart. Let us all up that no one ever tells me NOT to press the red button that will begin Judgment Day.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Pshaw indeed. That scarf looks great on you and a big giant thumbs down to whoever said redheads can't wear orange. I am all about affordability too so I'm gonna have to check into that site, because seriously that is one beautiful scarf. Also, your boots are amazing and I love your haircut :)
