I know this is a fashion/style post, but this J. Crew dress is the exact color of my favorite red/orange lipstick which I am also wearing in the post. I have and love a TON of red lipsticks, and always prefer ones with an orange undertone but this Rodin lipstick in Tough Tomato is by far the best of the best. The texture, the color, the pigmentation – it’s absolute perfection. I’ve reviewed it on the blog a ton of times (original post here and I’m wearing it here and here), but felt the need to make the call out again.
Moving on to this dress which looked cute online but I wasn’t sure it would be the best fit for me now. The empire waist yes, but the bust area was an unknown…..until it arrived. There is an elastic netting in the back that makes it expandable and thus insanely comfortable! If I could add this type of elastic detail to all my dresses and shirts, it would be heaven.
