Every time I put on stripes I sing the Johnny Cash song, "I Got Stripes." I don't know why, but it just feels good. You should try it too. Ps. The lipstick I'm wearing is a Revlon original 1950s color that is still being made-Cherries in the Snow. My grandma still wears it, and so what better endorsement do you need really? Even better, they make a matching nail polish. Go crazy cuz its a bargain!
