red, she said.


Look at me, I'm on a roll with blog posting! I had a little pocket of time between getting home from my doctor's appt & going out to dinner, so I grabbed my tripod and got to it.

I love all the looks bloggers have been posting with red lipstick and thought I'd give it a whirl. I don't think this is really the perfect shade for me, but I have it because I was Snow White for a theme party- so you know, just repurposing. I'd really like to buy a coral, slightly orangey shade, but I get so overwhelmed with the lipstick displays! It's like do I want Cherry Red or True Red? Or Bombshell or Classic? What do these things even mean? They should give you little sample mini lipsticks like perfume samples. Just little itty bitty ones and then you could try them out.


Doggy jumped in for the first one, managed to scoot her over out of the picture for the second. She was getting annoyed with me for not letting her back into the A/C. Such a spoiled dog, but we love err!


I LOVE this belt, I would probably wear it everyday if I could. It used to be my mom's when she was younger and she passed down all of these old belts to me when she was going through her closet. The leather is worn in to perfection and I like that it can give an outfit a little more visual interest or dress it down like with a skirt and nice top. I'll definitely be wearing this belt until it falls apart. That will be a sad, sad day like losing an old friend. I'll have to buy a new one and wear it in!


top: vintage, inherited from grammy
jean shorts: delia's
(you can see another way I wore them, here:
belt: inherited from my mama
hat & shoes: urban outfitters
lipstick: maybelline, red revival

Welp, that's all for now. I found out today that I have a herniated disk in my lower back, so I'm not supposed to be in the same position "posture" for more than an hour. It's actually starting to hurt now :[ so I'm going to go walk around or lay down. So much for a calm, relaxing week haha. But, hey life is always unpredictable. I hope your week is going better than mine!

love love,

aw I hope your back feels better. "herniated disk" sounds so intense.

I really love jean shorts+leather belt+tucked in shirt. It's such a nice combination.

I'm loving the belt. I agree that it'll be sad when it dies.
