It being almost summer and all, let’s take a moment to wax philosophic about an upcoming fall collection slated for a summertime release: Dior’s Fall 2008 Impression Cuir makeup collection. No matter what Dior calls it, this collection looks hot. Put on your water wings, grab some sweet tea (or gin and juice, haay!) and take a look.
Due for release this August, the collection features rich, romantic colors like burgundy, plum and copper and embossed animal-inspired textures — think crocodile and python. The makeup gods say dark lipstick will be big this fall, and I’m looking forward to Fantastic Plum Rouge Dior (pictured below). I think it’ll look great with my warm winter coat and knee-high boots.

I can’t wait to check out the palettes and glosses. How about you? Are you looking forward to Impression Cuir?
For some reason, reading about Impression Cuir’s rich fall colors and animal patterns made me lust after fall boots and shoes. I surfed on over to the Nordie’s website this afternoon, and they already have Stuart Weitzman fall shoes available for pre-order. Be still my lil’ black heart!
Too bad these are out of my price range. Damn … I would give up flip flops forever for a pair of those red boots. Le sigh!
I just got home from hip hop class. I haven’t danced in a looooong time. It was fun (we danced to Cyclone by Baby Bash and T-Pain, LOL!), but I bet my booty is gonna hurt tomorrow. For the record, my body don’t move like a cyclone.
What do you have going on for tonight?
