Today marks the beginning of December, and for me and many other readers of Fox In Flats it is the beginning of DAREcember! During DAREcember every day holds a new style challenge – keeping us on our toes, trying new things and most importantly remembering to look after ourselves in the midst of the frantic festive season.

I wasn’t originally going to participate in DAREcember as I had planned a couple of weeks blogging break from Christmas day. Also some of the dares I didn’t think I could complete without purchasing new items (which I’d rather avoid right now). But then I realised that was a pathetic cop-out! So I am instead committing to take part up until the 24th (which is a decent chunk of the month anyway). And I’m just going to have to get creative to complete some of the challenges – I’ve already asked a friend if I can borrow a vintage item for the 11th, so that’s one day covered.

I did have to buy a lipstick for today’s Hot Pink Lipstick dare, but I tried to choose a colour that I might wear again and found one that was pretty cheap on sale. I know it doesn’t look super bright in the photos, but I promise you the name of the lipstick is actually “Hot Pink” and it was definitely outside my comfort zone to wear!

For me this was absolutely NOT a way to ease into DAREcember. I was incredibly self-conscious with my dark pink lips and felt very conspicuous at my friend’s baby shower this afternoon. But you know what? Nobody commented except one friend who knew I was participating in DAREcember, and I didn’t catch anybody staring weirdly at my lips. Which just goes to show, you can get away with more than you think you can.

    I meant to tell you, it looked great! I was thinking myself after seeing you that I need to break out my red lippy again! Thanks for inspiring me (again!) ;)
