At just 23, Aimee Song is giving other West-Coast interior designers a run for their money! Named by AM New York as one of the "New Influencers" in the blogging sphere, we were psyched to tag along with her on our latest Dior'ific Lipstick Diary, this time in her stomping ground of Los Angeles. Read on to see how Song thrifts, dines, and dances up a storm.
3 p.m.: Vintage Shopping—With a friend’s wedding and a music concert coming up I’m on a hunt for a cute dress, so I decided to stop by Wasteland in Melrose, my go-to source for vintage clothes. Wasteland is a great alternative to huge, overwhelming thrift stores, and I love the wide variety of clothes they have. As always, this shopping trip did not disappoint since I walked out with two cute dresses. I’ve always been a big fan of natural makeup, but for spring I like to add a pop of color such as this pretty shade of pinky-red, Dior Addict Lipstick in New Look 745. This color is so fun and flirty, which is the look I’m going for when hanging out and shopping in Melrose. Plus, I’ve been into the '70s look lately, so the vintage red shade was a perfect addition to my '70s-inspired outfit."
