SHOP the DRESS
SHOP the BOOTS
SHOP the LOOK
Confession. As a child I always hated this joke (What’s Black and White and “Red” all over?). Not because it was lame, but because in my mind I couldn’t possibly wrap itself around the answer to the joke. Fast-forward 20-plus years and it finally hit me. A newspaper. A damn newspaper. READ all over.
How it took me this long I’m still not sure. My mind naturally goes to so many other gruesome options that newspaper never even occurred to me.
Anyhow, wearing black and white with red lips has become one of my favorite looks. This little dress is so comfy and fun to wear! I thought the only plausible way to make it better was to add a red lip… In fact, I find myself using “a red lip” as my go-to accessory almost on a constant. I work in retail and every time I start to get really excited about a look on a client I notice I immediately go to “omg.. with a red lip, perfect!”…. I really mean it, but it’s just where my mind naturally goes.
I’m going to go ahead and proclaim that “the red lip” is my most used accessory. So there.
Actually, now that I’m thinking about it, maybe one of my New Years Resolutions should be to to wear more actual accessories like jewelry, watches, and of course my hats. I think I’ll add that to the abundant list.
What are some of your favorite ways to doll up an outfit?
