I think a lot of girls are timid by red lips (mainly because it's such a huge shock when you look in the mirror), but like anything new, it just takes some getting used to. And just to reiterate my #1 rule when applying red lips for the first time - apply the lipstick before your eye makeup & blush - work around your lips so you don't overdo the rest. And more importantly, have fun!
This is one of my favorite dresses (on sale at a BR outlet on top of that!) I love structured dresses & I tend to gravitate toward button-down dresses. The slight A-line is the perfect length (for my short legs) while also adding volume & femininity. The picture of my legs below honestly motivates me to continue to run. Naturally, I have very shapeless legs, so it took over 200 miles (says my Nike+) to eventually get them this way. Gotta keep doing it.
