Winter is near…say yes to the red lips and nails!

Winter is near…say yes to the red lips and nails!

Many may have noticed (or not) that in nearly all of my, few, posts 🙂 I wear red nail polish or lipstick in the red family. While red may not be your signature look it is a look that is warranted for consideration as the winter approaches.

Not just because it’s a holiday color but because of the warmth of the color. If you’re not a fan of red lipstick (like I once was) try lip colors that are at least in the red family. Don’t be afraid to try red this year!

The simple black dress

The simple black dress

I know you’ve seen the dresses that are too flary, too tight, too short, too colorful, too much pattern, too big and the list goes on and on. But what happened to the little, simple, cute black dress? You know the dress that you can go to work in and then spice up later with a blazer, scarf, or accessories for a late night dinner.

Well, I found this cute laced bottom black dress at TJ Maxx for just $19.99 and let me tell you the material was not cheap. TJ Maxx has some great dresses, preferably their solid colored dresses. Haven’t been to TJ Maxx in a while for clothing? You just might want to pay them a visit.

‘My Little Black dress’ may sound cliche but they still make a statement and will always be original. Especially if you wear it with bright bold lips and nail color.

Another fashion tip I’d like to bring up is ‘Coat Slinging.’ I recently read a post that totally bashed coat slinging stating that it doesn’t stay on your shoulders, you can’t hug people etc., etc. However, Coat Slinging in my opinion is classy. While wearing this style isn’t meant to be worn while going out dancing, it is meant to be worn if you anticipate sitting pretty at a dinner table across from your date. I don’t know maybe it’s my obsession with the 50’s and 60’s era. It says “I’m a mature, sophisticated woman” when it’s done’s a vintage and classic look.

Do you think you could pull off a Coat Slinging look or would you dare try?
