I’m kinda red obsessed lately. Ever since my girlfriend Audrey encouraged me to wear red lipstick when we were on a girls trip celebrating her birthday, I’ve been hooked on the color. I was wearing a grey and white dress and she was sure my pale lips weren’t doing it justice, so with my other friends’ chiming in in agreement, I wiped off the pink and put on the red. After the initial uneasiness about fearing your lips are screaming, “look at me!”, I started to really dig it. This just goes to show that it’s good to get out of our comfort zones and try something new once in a while. Even if it’s just our own comfy ‘fashion’ zone.

I probably never would have chosen a bright red camisole top to wear even a couple years ago either (especially with this bright white skin- but I think warmer, sunny days are on the horizon!). I might have gotten it in black (which it does come in), but the red is so much brighter and more fun! This is the same top I showed you in my Valentine’s Day Outfits Day & Night, but I didn’t wear it for V-day, I wore it to celebrate my birthday.

Browsing the red aisles online, these gorgeous things jumped out at me.
And of course my favorite tee comes in red too! I wore my green one yesterday!
If you do want to try a red lipstick, below are three of my favorites.
Retro Matte Ruby Woo – This lipstick is very matte, as the name states. Think 50’s pin-up girl, but with a little gloss, you’re back in this decade.
Lady Bug – This one has a little pink in it if you don’t want to go too red.
Brave Red – This is a true red, closest to my old Mac Red, a red I bought many, many years ago to go with a Halloween costume, but the color is a perfect go-to red. I’m pretty sure Mac Red has been discontinued.
I’m wearing “Brave Red” (with a tad bit of clear gloss) in the camisole and the old Mac Red in the pictures below.
