Fabulous, Functional & Frugal Fashion Tip #14

“Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a KICK-ASS red lipstick.” ~Gwyneth Paltrow

kick-ass-lipstickNothing says confidence like a red lip. Red is bold, fiery, strength, power, determination, passion, desire, and love.

For those of us who require mobility devices a question that comes to mind might be “geez I get enough attention by using my white cane why do I need more?” While it could be a valid point there’s world of difference between the curious stares brought about from using the tools we need to live independently and the admiration that comes from the confidence that says “I feel good about myself, I feel beautiful.”

Today’s Tip: For an immediate confidence booster go with a red lip. Don’t wear makeup? No worries, just do you! Always remember, “when we feel good we look good.”

Have a relaxing Sunday!


  1. Oooo bright orange – sounds nice, especially in the winter. I hear you on the cheap earrings, jewelry is one of those things I refuse to spend a lot of money on because I’m the same way either I’ll lose them or break them. And you’re right one bright item can significantly change a look.

  2. I’ve got a fabulous bright orange scarf that I wear all winter – brightens up the dullest outfit and gets lots of compliments. And earrings. Love them and have a big collection, mostly pretty and cheap, as I’m too good at losing them. One bright thing can change a whole look 🙂
