Supercalifragilipstick.................pucker up red

I went hunting for all my red lipsticks today. I have always kept a nice supply of red lipstick ready for those evenings when I am feeling daring and in the need of one dramatic stroke. But if there is one thing I noticed this week, we are going to be reaching for the red lipstick this winter. It seems to be the Pucker Up colour of choice this season. I couldn't be happier, I love wearing red lipstick, it makes me feel quite daring, yet polished in a one-stroke way. This fabulous illustration from here.

While I was writing this post, up came an email from Kate Spade well not her directly or anything and there it lipstick. Supercalifragilipstick in red, as in Kate Spade New York now sells lipstick. Even though I have deliberately downplayed my make-up recently into a more age-appropriate palette of more neutral shades and lighter application, all bets are off when it comes to red lipstick. While I was looking at this ad the top right corner to be specific,  it reminded me of two entertainment/Fashion critics talking about the pink-and-red Monique Lhuillier gown that Zooey Deschanel wore to the Emmy's this past week.

The two male critics were really dissing the red-pink colour (it's actually a coral ribbon) combination which stuck me as kind of odd especially these days when every conceivable colour, pattern and style goes together and considering she is what 20? I admit it isn't a conventional combination but then Zooey isn't know for being conventional and that seems to have worked out pretty good for her. I thought it suited her youthful personality, and isn't that the point? Everyone well women anyways know red and pink go together and not just in wrapping too.

Wouldn't the Kate Spade lipsticks make for a wonderful stocking stuffer?
The perfect gift wrapping palette for a fashion gift. Really, the holiday season is not that far away. 

Tell me.........are you going to wear red lipstick this season?
