A Modern Day Pin Up

Every so often I get the urge to get dressed up for no reason. Well, correction: the reason is that today the Stop Staring dress I've been eagerly awaiting arrived in the mail! It's all Mad Men and 1950s glamour, but in subdued enough of a cut and color to be wearable everyday. It's my grown up dress--I feel completely transformed in it. And it demanded the accessories to suit. So!

On went the red lipstick. I'm wearing New York Color's dollar (!!!) lipstick in Retro Red, which is the perfect Marilyn, bombshell red, and perfectly suits a dress like this. Though unless you like eating lipstick, I really wouldn't recommend wearing it to dinner. It looks irresistibly moisturizing and kissable but transfers onto everything and is best suited for distant, sultry pouts. My indispensable pearls and bow belt completed the outfit--though the dress would have been fantastic enough on its own!

And what's a pin-up without a pair of seamed stockings and black pumps? Wearing: Leg Avenue stockings and Naturalizer Collette pumps. 
All dressed up and nowhere to go...
