LipstickRevlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in “Romantic”

Still coughing, still feeling icky, so still keeping it simple with my ensemble. I know a few of me found me batty to buy such loud pants, but I adore them. I can throw them in the washer and dryer and they come out looking like new, they have stretch but don't stretch out, and I think they actually work with a large percentage of my wardrobe. This tee is one of the things I bought from the Ann Taylor Friends and Family sale – I like the longer sleeves and the heavyweight, it works now but will be a great piece even when the temperature drops.

This lipstick I picked up while waiting four hours at CVS for MinuteClinic, and as I mentioned on Instagram and Twitter, I completely blame Sarah Conley of StyleIT.  Girlfriend always has the best beauty products, and she has recently become addicted to these balm stain sticks so when I saw CVS had buy one Revlon get one half off (don't they always have that promo?) I decided to snag one and am a happy camper.  They last longer than a lipstick, but feel smooth and soft and have plenty of shine.  I don't think this will be the last Revlon Balm Stain I'll be purchasing!

    Cute outfit! Don’t you think happy clothes make you feel better when you’re feeling crummy? BTW, I found your blog just the other day, when Kristen from Low Fat Dressing mentioned your blog in her post. I am SO glad to add you to my favorites! It’s refreshing to find a fashion blog featuring someone who is shaped like me, and fashions on a limited income. LOVE your blog! ♥

      Oh wow, what an extremely helpful comment, thank you so much. I’d love to see what you’re wearing right now so I can know how the cool kids who are not fatties and not in nasty outfits dress. Please educate me, oh fashionable one!

    Love the pants! I’ve been considering adding some printed jeans to my wardrobe so maybe floral is a good option, though I am really eyeing a pair of tie dye jeans.
