Days You Laugh

Beauty to me is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick ass red lipstick.
- Gwyneth Paltrow

Yeah, that lipstick is new. My friends in office gave it to me so that I can take the final plunge because you see it is one thing to look at a girl with scarlet lips, be amazed or whatever and it is completely different to wear a red lipstick and look at yourself without suspicion. Do I look like I have been bitten? Is it too much? Will everyone stare at me?

After a month of contemplation, I wore it. And though I don't even look half of what I would want to look, I think I will wear the colour again. Maybe now I know what a red lipstick does to you, on days that you don't give a damn and days you do, on days you laugh with your friends or on days you don't. On days you sing aloud and on days you could use a drink.

Its never too much. And of course they will look at you. 

Hope you guys are making the most of sale season. Please like my Facebook page if you like reading the blog.

  5. Hello lovely, just came across your blog and it's awesome! I am your newest follower and look forward to your next post! :) Love the outfit!!

    I have a new outfit post up on my blog, would love to know your thoughts:


  6. Rupa you are THE one to wear red lipstick, it's just your color. It compliments your beautiful dark eyes, it's like the cherry on top, hope you know what I mean. And now pretty girl we should talk turkey....first you are beautiful, you are pretty. People will always stare so make it worth their while. Let them talk, so what, hey they talk about you it should make you feel good not feeling insecure. If you like it, wear it! What other people think/talk is their business not yours. Tell you what Rupa ages ago I was like you feeling insecure, what might people think/talk...will they stare at me....and all the rest of it, then I watched a documentation about a designer, his early years and how people kept talking and staring at him and something inside me made click! since then I gave up giving a damn about what other people might think about me. If I like it, I wear it. Rupa it's your life, you do whatever you like to do. Period!
    kisses honey

  7. cool back in school

  8. That red does suit you beautifully!!! You MUST wear it more often!!
    And even though one really can't take their eyes off a red pout, I'm quite liking your outfit too! :)

  9. Beautiful outfit. Kisses!

  10. I was having the same thoughts when I bought and wore my first bright lipstick last year and since then I have become a fan of bright lipsticks! :)
    I think the color looks really good on you and you should apply it more often :)

  11. I am glad you finally wore it! It looks fab on you!
    I bought a new red lipstick too in MAC's Ruby Woo, recently after months of contemplating too lol. But you know I have a beautiful deep Orange from MAC which was my first bold lip color that I bought on an impulse one fine day and trust me it was the best decision I ever made. I feel its just the right kind of bold without that 'dare' attitude of red but still making a strong statement. Love it to pieces. whenever I put it on, i feel instantly pretty and confident. If that is what this color is doing to you, you're on the right track!
    I still need to be at ease with the red one lying unused in my kitty....soon soon I tell myself.

  12. The Red looks good on u.
    I wore red lips throughout my USA trip, coz i thought it was a safe beet as no one knew me thr.
    But now i m so used to it, that i feel I look pale, on the day I try another lipstick.:)


  13. great look honey, love the vest!

  14. Being comfortable in your own skin is the best!

  15. fabulous outfit<3
    Maybe want follow each other? if yes, just follow me and i follow you back :)

  16. Rupa this color definitely suits you very well and you should definitely paint your lips more! :)
    I remember I was a bit hesitant at first when it came to lipsticks as well! But once you take the plunge every next time is less scary and you become more confident! :)

  17. Wow,you look stunning.
    That lipstick is surely a stunner
    Have a great week

  18. Cute vest!!
