Red Lips Check, Red Dress Check

Like I said earlier last week, I have really been digging this new red lipstick look lately! I wanted to pair my new found red lip obsession with my red dress that I bought last year in Vegas at the Betty Page store.  This dress is almost as good as an LBD (Little Black Dress) although I will refer to it as my LRD (Little Red Dress). 
While recently in Austin with my cuz, we decided to go play around on South Congress. I just love all of the little vintage stores and boutiques as well as the amazing fashion sense that is much more edgy than the Houston fashion I sometimes get bored with.  We also ran across this cute little candy shop that had the most delicious ice cream sodas ever!  I decided on strawberry since I was definitely into my red fashion theme for the day!  
I decided to pair my LRD with a jean jacket and nude heels because I saw Cameron Diaz in a similar ensemble a couple of Glamour issues back.  I am loving the new trend of pairing something so casual like a jean jacket with a dressy dress like this red one.

I bought this amazing leopard clutch from Dennica Pearl. She had not even put it up for sale before I snatched it up as fast as I could! You need to check out her blog!

I also wore my pearl necklace that I knotted and made myself. I love this necklace!!

I am still on the search for red lipstick. I have been experimenting a few but nothing seems to be working. "sigh" ;(

Wow! Great shots! This is what you wear to go eat ice cream? Very glam! Love your combination - I have a red dress I wear with a denim jacket too. That's so great you make can your own jewellery.

Great photos once again, and a gorgeous outfit! I understand why you love the pearl necklace - not only because you made it yourself but because it's the perfect length and for some reason that's so hard to find!

Looks like a fun day. That place is amazing! ^_^

Don't you love how these days you can substitute almost any color for the classic little black dress? I can definitely see how versatile this one could be. And great pictures in the candy shop!

Fashion Me Chic said...

Thanks for sharing your red lipstick moment. I should do the same and dare myself to do it.

I had never wore a red lipstick. I stay away from it. Maybe one day, I'll have the strength to do it.

By the way, I love your dress. Your hair color is really nice too. It is a color that I had tried about a few years ago and I loved it on me.
