Be Mistletoe Ready!

Chanel Lip Color #25, Vendome
When I search online to find stylish people and places in D.C.  I often come across a specific word that I find offensive.  The word is "Dowdy".  How awful is that?                                                                                                                                    

I defense of the women in D.C., they do have some great qualities.  They are generally powerful and successful.  However, being honest, I wouldn't say that we have mastered the art of being sexy.  Don't worry, this doesn't mean that we have to be stuck in a frumpy life.  To come up with a solution I started thinking about what would be the opposite of being dowdy.  To me, the opposite of dowdy is glamorous.  And, when I think about glamor red lipstick is the first thing that comes to mind.  

Recently I tried red lipstick for the first time.  It felt a little over the top at first, but now I'm totally addicted!  Also, adding a new lip color to you beauty regime is relatively easy.  I wear Chanel #25 (Vendome), and at $30 a tube I know that it is pricey for lipstick, but I challenge you to find a more cost effective way to glamorize you look.  Red lipstick is also quite festive.  So, while the Holidays are still here, why not give it a whirl?  'Tis the season!
