Today, a lot of SL bloggers are celebrating the appeal of a very sexy pair of red lips. Hey, I can get behind that. I am fond of red lips (and pink, and peach, and shocking electric blue…). Whether it’s a rich, deep, blood-red that gets my heart pumping or a cool, classic, old-Hollywood red that suggests power and elegance, or even a fun candy-apple red on laughing lips, red is irrepressible and irresistible.
My friends, wear red. Let the Mean Girls and the bullies and the asshats of the world go sit in their corners, carefully wearing whatever is safest today. Pity them, because they’re fucking boring, and move on. Wear red, my friends, wear your fire-engine reds and your ruby reds and your stoplight-bright PAY ATTENTION TO ME NOW WORLD reds, and never spare a single moment for self-consciousness. Wear red, my friends, to the grocery store and to the office and to do all the great and amazing things you do. Wear red and love yourselves for your fabulousness. Wear red on your lips or your cheek or in your hearts.
My friends, wear red, and never let the petty and cruel tell you not to.
