Thirty Days Thankful: Pretty Things

Today, I'm thankful for dresses and makeup. Some days it's harder to feel pretty then others, but a nice dress and well-applied makeup can always help. Dolly Parton has some hilarious wisdom about makeup. I get such a hoot out of her wouldn't-be-caught-dead-without-it attitude. Here are a few great quotes from Dolly and other icons, interspersed with some links back to my favorite style posts. :)

You don't need to buy expensive cosmetics; almost anything will do if you know how to apply it. ~ Dolly Parton

Put on some lipstick and pull yourself together. ~ Elizabeth Taylor

Some Rockette-style red lipstick never fails to make me feel pulled together. See my tutorial here!

Don't dress to kill, dress to survive. ~ Karl Lagerfeld

One of my favorite "dress-to-survive" looks, a polished black and gray outfit with some fierce heels.

Keep your heels, head, and standards high. ~ Coco Chanel

What are you thankful for today? I'd love to hear in the comments!

'Til next time,
