Glory Road

In summer when outfits become the pinnacle of simplicity I like to wear red lipstick--it just makes even the most basic outfit seem more interesting. Plus, it is quite fitting when you're wearing vintage or a retro silhouette. Although I must say I always feel like people are looking at me more when I'm wearing red lipstick; I guess it's just not so very common place these days.

Outfit details:
vintage dress
Seychelles heels

Great outfit Rebecca (I never get tired seeing what you will wear next). Just curious are you back in Virginia (I am asking because of the railway tracks behind you)?

I know what you mean about getting more head-turns when wearing red lipstick. I've been self-conscious in the past, but then I remember that I should get dressed to please myself - not other people! Your photos are looking magical lately, by the way. Beautiful dress.

@Anonymous, no. This is a new set of train tracks near where I live in PA.

Your shoes are quite amazing! And I agree, red lipstick always adds a little oomph to the most basic of outfits. It makes it more fun!

Red lips always make me feel like a glamorous Hollywood star. Even in more casual outfits. You are just so pretty!

Marisa Noelle said...

The tones in these photos are so pretty. I love when a dress doesn't need to be overdone with a lot of different accessories. This one speaks for itself.

Have you been to Gettysburg yet? There are so many interesting spots to poke around in that town:)

I love red lipstick as well but always get a bit uncomfortable with all the extra looks I receive when I wear it. I think this outfit goes perfectly with these new train tracks!

The Braided Bandit said...

Yay for new tracks and another gorgeous dress. Thanks so much for giving me a few camera pointers, it was greatly appreciated! Definitely going to try the purse-focus trick when I shoot by myself next time :)

Megan said...

Oh, i love this whole post. The outfit and the photo shoot! We have similar hair, lol, so it looks exactly like me in the last picture!
