Wearing my angora essentials I have been patiently collecting over the last couple of years. Today's ensemble has a similar idea to the 20120601 look I posted in June. This time I replaced the tank top and skirt with a sleeveless turtleneck and baggy leggings. My lipstick is bright red in Lady Danger by MAC.

In these ogive settings, the whole concept of medieval chain mail armour with the coif falling down the shoulders feels more adequate. Oh yes, and don't forget to visit my new Facebook Page!

How about brightening up that January depression a little bit? My hat is a five dollar beanie I got off of Amazon. My makeup is a very loud, orange lipstick by MAC, and as always, I wear it with a bare face and Chanel mascara. I introduced this color to my makeup routine back in 2011, but now I'm looking for a new, slightly yellower hue. Any recommendations?

I usually ignore fashion quotes, finding them pseudo intellectual, but there is one by Karl Lagerfeld I kind of like. It can be interpreted in the aspect of subtlety versus boldness as well as be taken literally. He says: "Go either very cheap or very expensive. It's the middle ground that is fashion nowhere." I'm wearing Owens' leather coat paired with an American Apparel cotton crewneck and trousers. For heavy-usage casual basics I only go with that brand as each piece is a must-have essential for both casual and practical purposes. All in black, of course, and preferably of the same fabric composition, so when I shop there I buy in sets to match.

Last winter I stopped wearing scarves, finding them too awkward or too bulky, and I didn't want to get involved with uncomfortable turtlenecks either. So this hijab-inspired wool collar happened to be a brilliant alternative. I can wear this single piece over any of my crewneck tops as a scarf or high over the ears.

The weather finally got cold enough to wear my cashmere hijab. Similar to the Limo's runway, I paired it with a bright lipstick by MAC. "'Somehow it transforms a woman into being beautiful,' the designer's trusted makeup artist Lucia Pieroni says of the magic bullet of MAC Lipstick in Lady Danger that she has become accustomed to layering on top of a precise tracing effort of its Lip Pencil in Redd at Owens' shows - a combination that has become a ritual here for the last three seasons" (style.com).

Wearing bright Morange lipstick by MAC, and coincidentally to the right grows a tree with little orange berries. This is my first post in 2013, and the new year has given me the motivation to start a new social network, so I have created The Divinitus Facebook Page. I hope you like it.
