Do you watch Mad Men? It's not in season right now (cannot WAIT until March), but I love it. I love the setting, the hair, the makeup, the clothes, the jobs. It's what TV should be, an entertaining escape into another world. . . instead of an embarrassing number of horrible reality TV shows.
Anyway, Betty Draper is the beautiful blonde housewife, who always looks perfectly put together. Along with every other housewife of the 50's (as this show depicts).
And she wears red lipstick. So I was inspired.
I chose a "cool" red called Red Revolution from the Maybelline ColorSensational line. Look how shiny it is! I think it works quite well with my pale skin.
Though I don't know if I am brave enough to wear it in public yet. I feel like I need the right occasion for red lips. Maybe a date with my man? I think yes.
My top is from Old Navy--the patterned white and grey tank. I paired it with an old cardigan from Gap, and my favorite J. Crew jeans. I've made these jeans worth their price by wearing them almost daily. Awkward confession? Maybe. But I still haven't shared how frequently, or infrequently, I wash my jeans. My mom would be horrified if I told you. :)
