red lips & red bottoms + a giveaway

Those of you who follow me on TWITTER know how excited I was about my Ruby Woo MAC purchase.
I've never worn anything other than a sheer gloss on my lips, yet something moved me to purchase a red LIPSTICK, and now I can't get enough of it.
It was the perfect accessory for this classic black and white combo.
And the perfect compliment to my red bottoms which you've seen a million times by now HERE, HERE & HERE.

How gorgeous is that sunset??? Anyway, on to the...

~GIVEAWAY~
While I was on my vacation I reached 300 followers, and what better way to celebrate than with a giveaway? Coincidentally, while I was away, the team over at SHABBY APPLE approached me about a giveaway. They have tons of great women's dresses, but I couldn't resist when I saw FRANCINE, this black bow skirt.
It reminds me of my skirt in this post, that is no longer available in stores, but FRANCINE could be yours if you simply follow me via Google Friend Connect. For additional entries you can:

  46. I was wearing Ruby Woo so much my sister asked me to put the red lipstick down. You look so chic in this fit. Really love the skirt. I'm a huge fan of skirts and dresses although I know you are on the hunt for more pants. Well until you find them, this look is a definite win. Like the fact that your necklace added a pop of color. We can trade outfits :)
