Big Girl Lipstick

When I met Amy at the Saks Chanel counter on Saturday morn, me - shlumpin' in khaki shorts, sandals, wet hair, chin covered in moving zits, she - Burberry barn jacketed, coiffed, flawless skinned, I knew I wasn't in Kansas anymore Toto...

So when the Pied Piper of Saks said, you must try my new fav Chanel lipstick I said, okayI'lltakethatoneplease. My first big girl lipstick. Babe should count his lucky stars I put the brakes on the big girl Moschino coat and big girl Chanel evening bag Amy also picked for me. I would've been in big time trouble girl...

Kindness of Amy for the Chanel Rouge Coco Shine lipstick in Bonheur rec. I looove it. It's found a place of prominence right next to my zit drying lotion on the vanity. Also, for her Barney's Denim Bar suggestion which I later referred to, and was politely corrected, as the jean counter. Like I said, loooong way from Kansas...XXOO


  1. I AM still in Kansas! I can relate though as Isabella and I stopped into the Chanel counter at Macy's on Saturday.

    Alas I too had to behave myself!

    I hope you will come and join my Giveaway from Interieurs! It is from the Jose Esteves Collection!

  2. Big Girls don't cry over any flaws or mistakes when they wear Chanel "lipstick!"
    Love it.

  3. Denim Bar? Aaahhh, Barneys how quickly we forget our schmatta roots....

  4. I looooove my Chanel lipstick discovered in early summer. My bestie swore by it for ever before I gave in and give it a whirl. I am sold ... although I am not a fan of the name of mine. Kind of takes away from the excitement every time I wear the "Boy" by Chanel.

    I also swear by Chanel mascara ... and I am tempted to try the face wash if I ever stop my obsession with Kiehl's!!!

  5. Love Chanel lipstick (and gloss!) They last and are nice and moist. What color did you choose?

  6. That's funny, Patty.
