The Lady In Red

Red is definitely my color. I'm not sure why I don't wear it more often because whenever I do I get tons of compliments. It occurred to me that I don't actually own a whole lot of red stuff, aside from a drawer full of lipsticks that I bought in attempt to pull off a Dita Von Teese, and instead ended up looking like Dita Von DON'T.

Doing a little fishing for both compliments and cute stuff I found these items:

Love the shoes! Why is red lipstick so hard to pull off!

Always In Style said...

Thanks all...re: the lipstick...I dunno, I always feel self-conscious trying a red lip. I wanted to do one for my wedding and everyone on the planet said NO!!!!

Red is the fastest way to feel sexy... at least in my opinion.

Those are great red pieces, and would garner lots of compliments.

I loved your "DON'T" joke, that was epic.

I don't think I have any in true red.. maybe just some nail polish. :P
Dita Von Don't... phhaaa enc is right. that's funny.

are you an extrovert? then you would be fine. I'm not quite there yet to wear red.. the dress is really a show stopper.

yes, I love red myself regardless of the season! Did get into yellow this summer at all not really my thing! The thing with red is everyone looks good in it - from pale skin to chocolate, from blonds to brunettes!

Love the shoes!

Danz said...

Red really is a great colour! I've also tried my share of red lipsticks but I usually go pretty light on the application since I have fairly thick lips.

I love the dress and the shoes you picked out!

Melli said...

I love the dress. you should try some different shades of red for the lipstick.
