I have to give the name of this post to Economy of Style. She commented on my last Maxi Dress outfit with Maxi Magic, and I liked that comment so much and I told her that I would steal if for my next Maxi Dress post, so here it is!! This is another Maxi Dress Remix. I previously wore this dress HERE. But this time I wanted to wear it to work.  I just love being able to make outfits work for work and for play. Saves on the budget, and it's just fun to see how creative you can be with your work outfits. It's also very clear that Maxi dresses are my go-to for the Spring/Summer. Not only are they one stop looks that you don't have to think that much about, but they are comfy and figure flattering.  Say if I want to eat some pizza and some sweets I can camouflage the pouch in my stomach with a Maxi!! I also have tons of over-thing-a-ma-jigs to wear over maxi's to transition them from a day out in the sun to a great look for work.

Ok so onto the lipstick.  Yes it's bright pink, and yes I wore it to work. I definitely push the limits with my work attire sometimes, but I just bought the lipstick on Saturday and was DYING to wear it again and couldn't wait, so Monday at work it was worn! haha.  Now I had been hunting for a "Coral" lipstick shade...more orange, and I found that too at M.A.C. I bought that one also it's called "Morange", but for some reason, though I had been looking for coral all season, this hot pink number just looked a little better on me! And you know how M.A.C. has you try stuff on like all makeup counters, so I left it on with my outfit I wore to the mall on Saturday and walked around the mall with it on, and people were LITERALLY stopping me and asking me where I got my lipstick and that it looked so great on me! A hit! I finally found a lipstick shade that flatters me, and looks good! Love M.A.C. My M.A.C. consultant was actually wearing the "Impassioned" which inspired me to try it on, and she was so cute and helpful. She also recommended that I buy the "Magenta" lip pencil (as they call them, but I call them lip liners) to use with the "Morange" lipstick to make it more coral than orange. So technically now I have 3 lipstick colors: Bright Pink, Orange, and Coral.

And you would not believe how chapped my lips are even in the summertime, and I have tried everything from Mary Kay Scrubs to Chapsticks, but I read in a fashion magazine (I don't remember which one since I read so many) to try out this lip scrub and balm from Victoria Secret. And it was listed as $14.00. So I also picked that up to on Saturday. Can't have bright lips lookin' chapped!! I haven't tried the balm stuff yet, but I will let you know how I like it!

  5. You're right on target about maxi dresses. Maybe it's the whole "this feels like I'm wearing Gramma's nightgown only prettier and outside" line of thinking that makes them so damn comfy! This one looks great on you and I love the lip color! The ring is adorable too.

  24. Nice look! Ugh, that is the worst when you get dry, chapped lips.. I used to get them all the time even in the summer and started using the La Mer lip balm and it works but way tooooo expensive! Lets hope this product works for you!

    All the best, Angel
