HOT LIPS

Oh my god, this post was really just going to be about the cool lips clutch I saw on Delightful's blog, and then it morphed into this whole crazy thing! What can I say except red lips will always be cool. They've inspired countless designers, photographers, artists, and musicians, and here's just a small portion of my favorite lips images.

YSL really red lipstick. It just looks so lethal. Marc Jacobs lipstick pen. If you don't know what this is, then I'm not telling you. But it's not really lipstick.Icons and logos. There's so many.Delightful has this clutch...which I think I am in love with. It prompted all of this investigation into lips shaped bags.And Lulu Guinness makes one too, Vintage enamel red lips pin with rhinestone teeth. So pimp.The creepy but awesome jewelry by Margaux Lange, all made from Barbie parts.Marilyn lips sofa manufactured by Gufram of Italy.And the Mae West one by Salvador Dali, 1938. Or Man Ray?And this 80's lips phone, which you can buy here for $53. I wanted it really bad but got one of those clear phones instead. It was a toss up between the two, but now I wish I'd gone for the lips.Lips sunglasses here.Samskiart on Etsy - embroidered kissesWax lips?
