Maybe Coral Lips Just Aren’t For Me

I have been searching for a beautiful coral colored lip for as long as I can remember.  This week I decided to try again, and I do not think I have found the right answer yet.

Here is my first try.



This is a shade called “Compelling Coral.”

Hmm.  Looks like a typical soft pink.

Next up… “Tropical Coral.”

Um… is this even a different picture?

And, finally… “Always Apricot.”

I actually liked this one the best, even though it looks mostly the same in these pictures.

I may have too much color (ie: freckles) in my face to pull off these specific coral colors.  What I have in my mind is deeper, and maybe more orange.  I’ll keep looking.

Shoes On The Street

I have been wanting to try a post like this for some time, but I always hold back for some reason.  So, I am just going to dive on in…

It’s not like I am going to be mean.  That’s just not who I am. 

These obviously caught my eye because of the great lace tights.  She looks really nice.

These all happen to be from Starbucks, so not actually “on the street.”

I don’t own a pair of “booties” yet.  Can you even believe that?  It’s sort of a crime.

Doesn’t this young lady look good?!  I love the slouchy boots and bag combo she put together.

These just look like “Happy Feet” to me.

Clearly I can see that I need to work on my “On The Street” photography skills, but I like the idea, so I will probably keep at it.  What do you think?

Shoe Save #71 Vince Camuto Multi Color Sandals

I actually did wear these shoe this week IRL.  Why am I speaking like a teenager rather than The Mother?  I have no idea.

I simply love these shoes!  They are fun to look at, and fun to wear.   Also, and might I add, most imortant, is the fact that my toes matched the red/orange color on the shoe perfectly.  I take my toe color seriously! 😉

This is the color, from an earlier post.  It’s OPI’s “Monsooner Or Later.”

I am sorry not to have a full outfit shot, but if you look closely, you get the general idea.  This is The Mother’s typical uniform.

Today at DSW

I am trying not to buy every pair of shoes that catches my eye.

Really!  I am trying.

I still want to shop for shoes though, and I do continue to wander through various shoe stores and websites.  One of my favorites is DSW.

Here are some of the things I found that I didn’t buy.







These have the best colorful design on the wedge.







I love the bows with the small addition of the studs on the toe on these.







Gold and glittery… what more do I need to say?



















And… let us not skip over the fantastic bags!  This one is a Vince Camuto, and was large enough to carry a small lap top.  The animal print and tassel details are awesome.







Finally, a bag I might have to go back to acquire.  This one is by Isabella Fiore, who I have loved for ages.  Her handbags just seem to speak to me.  The colors on this bag are really lovely, and the tough brown leather adds a fun accent.

Do you have a DSW in your area?  Do you love it like I do?
