Desert Rose

Bernie Dexter The Perfect Pin Up Dress in Yellow Roses 002

If you've been following my blog for some time, you will know that I'm not much of a lipstick person.  I love the idea of it, but the actual wear is such a pain to me.  I usually stick with a tinted gloss or a rosy pink creme lipstick at most.  That is, until I put this dress on.  Something about it made we want to dust off my YSL red lipstick and work it!  I don't use the word "sexy" very often but I was definitely feeling it today.

I've been doing my best to get out and find great locations for my outfit photos.  This particular area is right up the street from my home.  I've always had it in my head that my little suburb of a town didn't have much to offer my blog visually.  I definitely realize I was wrong, I've found so many great places in these last few weeks.  I'm hoping I keep this up though.  While it's so much easier to set up shop in my backyard, I feel much better about my location pictures.  I guess we will see...

I decided to take a lit of a blogging break last week.  When I took off that pressure of posting a certain amount per week, I actually blogged more.  Last week was the first time in months I just kept my computer off.  It's funny, I had content and lots of time.  I just didn't feel like it :).  I had a great week spending time with Bianca while trying to beat this crazy heat.  It was a much needed "staycation" but I'm happy and really motivated to post again.

  4. What an amazing dress - and such a perfect shade of lipstick for it. I'm the opposite - as much as it's a hassle I don't feel 'ready' until my red lips are on! Anyway, definitely hot stuff - another divine neckline x

  6. This dress is stunning on you! I am in love with the background too. Plus I'm super proud of you for adventuring. It definitely took your blog up ten notches and it was already at like 100. Also lipstick. Lipstick makes me feel sensual -- especially red. So, I'm always hesitant to wear it. You should wear it more often. It makes you look like a colorful goddess.

  8. Perfection, everything is just perfect. You look stunning as always but the vivid colors against the Star Trek-esqe background make them pop even more.

  9. You sure look really good in that dress and with the vivid lipstick, too! I like lipstick, but you're right, maintaining it is a pain, so often I just don't wear it.

  11. Sometimes, you just need a little break! It's nice that you took the time and it sounds like it paid off in many ways.

    I love the dress on you, and yes, even the lipstick. I used to be a gloss only girl and now I love lipstick. What I don't love, is the worry of having it all over my teeth...

  18. Did your husband take these photos or did you use a tripod? I would think he'd have a HARD time concentrating on taking the photos with you in this dress (my husband has that issue with me sometimes - oh my). You look stunning and even though you are not a big lipstick lover, don't fret. Your lipstick looks wonderful!

  19. You look romantic and playful! What a beautiful dress, it fits you so perfectly and sings a melodic tune with your hair colour & lipstick.

    Isn't it wonderful to feel sexy? I think all women ought to know how that feels at least twice a week!
