Chevron Dress / Bold Red Lip

My new job is about a 1 minute drive from a mall with an H&M, so I've been stopping in about once a month during my lunch break to see what's up. Every once in a while I'll pick up another work blouse and use a 20% off coupon, and on my most recent visit I picked up the below chevron-print sheath dress. It has a great tweed-like texture, and the black and white colors make it go with almost anything. Plus obviously the high neckline and longer length make it work appropriate. To some extent I'm lucky that I'm short enough that these sheath dresses are long enough on me to wear to work. Also - I took a chance with this red lip! I hardly ever wear red lipstick because I am not 100% a fan of my lip shape (usually think red emphasizes how thin they are). In this case I actually drew slightly outside of my top lip line which I think makes them look a little fuller, without looking unrealistic. (I'll also say the caveat is that I wore this makeup look on a day when I did not have any court or client meetings) Have you ever worn red lipstick to work? Do you think it's appropriate? I think in conservative environments it probably is not appropriate - but I'd love to hear your opinions!
