Today on my other blog, Chic & Green, I posted a piece on the classics....that little black dress, red lipstick, and pearls. What a stunning look for anyone at any size!
I am going to share some little black dresses with you. I ordered a new one for the holidays at Overstock.com. A head's up--a size 12 in this dress fits me like a dream. For reference, I am a 12 in Not You Daughter's Jeans and at White House Black Market. I buy a 14 at Avenue and Lane Bryant jeans.
Here's my new dress:

What goes with that little black dress? Red lips and pearls, of course!
Here are some really fabulous reds:
bareMinerals Red Delicious 100% Natural Lipcolor
DuWop Private Red
Korres Guava Lipstick in #55 Red
Josie Maran Devious
Anyway, these are all so pretty, but I have decided to order a new lippie from one of my most favorite mineral makeup companies. It's from the Ithaca area's Silk Naturals and it is called Hot Blooded.
It sounds like a brilliant red--something anyone can wear--and it is $4.50! It says there's cool red, warm red, and other multifaceted shades so that it is truly wearable for those with a hard time finding red lip colors. Did I mention how wonderful the makeup from Silk Naturals is? Here is a review of the other lippies I've tried from them. Click to read.
What else goes with that little black dress and a red lip? Pearls, of course! Here are some favorite pearls from Etsy:
