The Friday Confessional October 2nd


Confession Number 87: I am a 29 year old female living in the city, with a love for [quirky] fashion; big heels, bigger jewelry and wearing dresses to the grocery store. I do not own a single tube of lipstick. FREAKISH, I KNOW. My reasoning (which, as always, is solid as a rock) balances between the fear that if I start wearing lipstick, I will soon reach the point in life where I have consumed 8 pounds of the rouge (so not an urban legend). Somehow my obsessive-compulsive application of chap-stick and "natural moisturizing lip-glosses" falls out of this fear range (but if I though long and hard about it, I've probably doubled that consumption rate in beeswax - GROSS!). The other half of it is a long-standing knowledge that I have a large mouth and really, how much more do I need to accentuate it? I kid you not: Apparently when I was born and opened my whopper for that initial wail, the doctor's first words were "Wow, this kid has a BIG mouth!" So you just go with it. And win marshmallow eating contests. And smile big. And, 29 years later, still debate over wether or not to give into the kisser and paint it up.

This blog is too cute for words. The tights and the shoes are simply FABU, and they work only on YOU!

Lipsticks, lipsticks, how I love them and I don't own any either, and I am way older than you...You either are a lipstick person or you are not. I don't think it has to do only with the size of your mouth because Angelina Jolie's appears big, not yours. Your lips appear beautifully proportioned with the rest of you...
: ) Have a great weekend!

Ah, I kinda got side tracked by those long legs decked in darling leggings, but now I have recovered:P and would like to comment about the lack or need there of for rouge, you so so so need to keep those lips auh natural, besides the lipstick on the teeth is so garish and funny and the paint on the lapels of your boas shirt can be a bit too much as you know... like the down to earth beauty you are a tint of color would be unnecessary indeed:)

Ladies, you make me giggle AND blush, so really, you've all taken care of the lipstick issue for me!

Olive - As soon as I get over to your hemisphere, you are so on! I'll defend that title...
