Deck The Halls
Lipstick: A slang term used to describe lesbian women who exhibit feminine qualities and gender attributes, such as wearing make-up (thus, lipstick), wearing dresses or skirts. Her interests usually include fashion, flowers, perfume, “Sex and the City,” lingerie, lipstick of course, and (gasp!) passionate sex with other women.
Probably the most classic term for a really feminine lesbian, Lipstick once used to encompass all purse carrying, make-up wearing, silk touting lesbians. Over time, it has been downsized to represent just the subset of feminine, professional, mature lesbians.
Though very femme, she is known to have at least one ball cap to pull her long, shiny hair through for a quick jaunt to the spa or gym.
She tends to mate with, or be attracted to, any other subset of lesbian as long as they are willing to cater to and coddle her. The Lipstick isn’t necessarily catered to in her professional life because at work she is usually in charge and proud of it. She knows how she likes things done and would prefer to do it herself “so that it is done right the first time!”
She may sound a little high maintenance, and I suppose based on my experience she is, but she is also worth every back breaking chore. For any of you who have gone home with her lipstick on your proverbial collar, you know what I’m talking about.
Clearly, she's not easy to shop for, so be sure to ask her what she wants under the tree. Whatever the request, odds are good that she'll want it to be frou frou, and we know just where you can find it - Metropolis. The east Nashville shoppe, located at 1017 Fatherland St., offers up fancy, sparkly and unnecessarily fabulous versions of just about anything your lipstick wearing lady might want - from designer pens and journals to martini glasses, candles and a slew of home decor.
She will tell you exactly what she wants and will still act surprised when you get it for her. She is sweet that way. But if you foible, the essence of Lipstick will be revealed and you will be sleeping on the couch, so be sure to keep the receipt.
