Boston in Bright Red Lipstick

Thursday was my day to finally get to see Stacy's new condo. She bought the place almost a year ago so I've been hearing about it but this was my fist time seeing the beautiful home she has made for herself.  I love getting to see where people live, it puts them into context.  

I took the T to the Prudential Center to meet Stacy after work. I got there early so entertained myself with a little shopping.  I recently discovered that my red lipstick has gone missing.  I suspect it's hiding in one of the vintage purses I use for evenings out with Hubby. Yes, I have a vintage purse collection which I will show you later this summer when my life gets boring again.  Anyway, I went into Sephora to see if I could find a replacement. I'd never been in there before so it was a little overwhelming. I wear very little makeup and what I do own I've bought from Target. Once I had sorted out how to tell lipstick/lip color from all the other colorful tubes I was in better shape. I finally settled on Sephora's luster matte long-wear lip color. I've never used the paint on kind so it was a bit of a challenge to get it on my lips and only on my lips but I think I'll get the hang of it will some practice. But looking at this picture I think it was all worth it.  

Look at me posting iPhone selfies like a grown up blogger. I joke because I feel self-conscious, but wow I like this picture. 

Here's what I wore last night. 

Nothing you haven't seen before. 
Sun dress: Old Navy (thrifted)
Cotton sweater: Decree (thrifted)

Bakelite barrette made by me from a pair of clip on earrings and a game piece. 

And an assortment of vintage plastic bangles on my wrist.
