Back to the Future of Fashion

I don’t know what it is, but lately I have been really girly. I’ve bought a bunch of dresses and I own heels and blouses. Maybe I’m on some kind of feminine rush of estrogen?
Either way I am in girly overdrive these days, and today I decided was the day to find out if it were actually a world where an extremely pale, let’s call it porcelain-skinned woman like me could wear red lipstick without looking like a cheap hooker.
Since I’m pretty pale (read: GHOSTLY WHITE), I thought maybe I’d be able to get away with it. So I headed down to MAC and while making my other annual makeup purchases, I asked the sales rep to put red lipstick on me to see what I’d look like.
I thought maybe I could channel Dita Von Teese or something, since I love the femininity of the 50s era.

and it actually wasn’t too bad! I didn’t look like a cheap skank, and it didn’t make me want to lunge at the makeup remover. In fact, I kept in on…….

for an hour.

Okay, I’m feeling pretty girly, but I’m thinking there needs to be a pretty serious excuse for me to wear red lipstick. Am I wrong?

Has anyone else out there attempted to try on red lipstick?

I think maybe if I were donning my now stain-free outfit from H&M that I could maybe pull it off……maybe.

I just got home from an Advance Screening of TRANSFORMERS!!!!!!

And I can’t even describe the sheer on-screen AWESOMENESS X 1000 that was this movie. It was everything great that you think it’s going to be. This is the best movie I have seen in 2007. Seriously. I’m pretty sure I pooped a robot out of sheer joy after I got out of this movie. People were so delighted that they clapped at the end and cheered when they heard the first transformation noise.

Maybe now we won’t have to ostracize Michael Bay for such shiteous movies as “The Island”. Okay Mr. Bay, I forgive you. You have wooed me with the EXTREME BONER-RIFFIC intensity of the robot aliens of my childhood (and most of my career working at Blockbuster as I was constantly forced to watch the movie over and over by my male co-workers).
