My five year old dressed herself then came to me with an unsure look on her face and asked: "Is this too 'matchy-matchy'"?
Now, this isn't something I say which makes me wonder what Kindergarten girls talk about at recess? "Don't you hate the school uniform? It's so matchy-matchy."
Or, maybe she has secretly been watching Project Runway? (Highly unlikely) Now, I don't watch Project Runway but there is an article in The Age today Too Matchy For Heidi Klum. Apparently that is one of the criticisms of the judges -- It's too matchy-matchy.
But Revlon has taken on the matchy-matchy police by reinventing it's iconic 1952 ad for 'Fire and Ice' -- matching 'lips and tips' -- with Jessica Biel.
Best of all, the collection features what is sure to become a collector's item - a lipstick, in classic red All Fired Up, in a silver vintage case with the original "'Revlon'' logo in cursive script across the gold band. It's $25.95. The matching nail polish ($15.95) also features the vintage Revlon logo. And everything matches.
Could you see yourself - bring your fashionable self - to wear matching lips and nails (fingers and toes)? I can. I can use to justify it to Michael Kors if necessary. I like it. Stuff cutting edge. Bring back ladylike polish.
