dressed up like a lady: Black and white and red all over.

Jul 3, 2008

Black and white and red all over.

This dress is a little slinky I guess, but with the exception of certain rude and cultureless girls with orangy tans and rolled down booty shorts, I tend to feel that most accusations of clothing being "risque" or "slutty" are remnants of Puritanism. I also have a bias for scoop-neck dresses.


Dress: Tag got mangled so I can't tell via Marshall's
Belt: Pepe via Marshall's
Shoes: Thrifted
Sunglasses: Thrifted







Red belt, red shoes, red lips. This is Lip Indulgence lip gloss by Lola in Sangria. For a gal like me with super pale skin, I find it's the best shade for when I want my pucker to be crimson -- the hints of orange in many reds will make me look like some kind of awkward public-access tv host. The downside is that the texture of this gloss is kind of weak; it spreads unevenly so you have to fix it in a mirror.

  1. oh my gosh, that looks SO nice! i just posted a rather short skirt in my blog and i feel like it might be too short, but it's so hot out and anything longer makes me want to die from the heat!

  8. I really like the dress. No skank here! I've never been one to like tight fitting clothes (if you've been around me for a day you'd see why). But I love the way it looks on you!

    Gotta love Marshall's as well.

  21. Thanks for the tip with the lip gloss. I, too am "fair skinned" and struggle with finding the right shade.

    I don't think the dress is slinky; it's awesome! And those shoes were thrifted? Lucky find!

  26. I have that exact dress!

    I bought mine from tightrope maybe two years ago?
    but who knows with tightrope, mine could be a knock-off design!

    I bought mine a lot looser though for summer house-lounging- but man, now i wish i got a fitted one! You look incredible!
