what do you think of red lipstick-wearers when you see them?
18%   rockstar classy (read: Gwen Stefani)  
0%   rockstar trashy (think: Courtney Love) 
27%   always classic 
1%   hot latin momma 
53%   or... does it depend on the outfit?

ThursdaysChild 's Thoughts:

it is FINALLY spring. Which is so happy for me because I’m starting to grow (sideways) out of all pants that once fit me and so I’m happy to wear skirts and dresses. But then terrifying b/c “oh shiz now everyone can actually see me

Anyway I am kicking it off with a light-weight denim dress I got over the weekend. I was hoping the ivory slip underneath was long enough to be cute, but it’s kind of at that length where I just look like I don’t know how to dress myself.

Second photo:
- without the scarf… apparently I feel much freer this way.
- notice the NOTICABLE hem of the slip. I guess it just likes to move around.
- also you can see the scarf in the background. hanging on my lamp from ikea. probably a fire hazard like that.

Third photo:
- I cut off most of my face, but really, nothing much to see there, folks. So it’s just a close up of those red lips. I just got the lipstick yesterday… Flamenco by Nars.

Yeah I don’t look much like a Flamenco dancer, more like a midwestern housewife, but it adds some missing pizzaz, dont you think?

sorry the picture quality isn’t great. I unfortunately am one of those fools who doesn’t know how to operate the camera she has owned for about two years. three?

you look so gorgeous in this dress and with scarf, you don't need to be shy! Alas, I'm also shy and sometimes when people "really start to see me" I want to hide somwhere:) But we don't need to be so shy! you are chic!

I love your denim dress and your new lipstick!! Red lipstick always feels like a classic to me. =) I'm actually looking for both red lipstick and some new denim clothing for spring. I think I may buy some red lipstick from Revlon or Loreal.

aw thanks!! I was so happy when I found the shoes... I had been wanting oxfords but on that day I wasn't even shopping for oxfords, they just crossed my line of sight fortuitously.
