paint the town...red!

last time i talked about how everyone is wearing more nude toned clothes, but i'm seeing more red out there too! instead of trying to wear a bunch of bright colors i see more people adding pops of red into their black,white and grey outfits. the red can be seen on a shirt, as a red shoe, or in the form of red lipstick or lipgloss. it's everywhere. if you haven't tried wearing red, now is the time to do it! something you might not know about me: i used to absolutely HATE red, but recently i've been liking it more. i don't know why i was so averse to it before but now i'm warming up to it.

red


i love pretty much everything in this collage. one major piece i'm lusting after here though is the lanvin paisel chain handle pouchette for $1,850 from barneys. when i look at it, i'm reminded of chanel, since the brand is known for their chain handle bags. however this bag has an even edier vibe because of it's rectangular shape, top closure, and studs at the top of the strap and at the side of the bag.


red is the color of power and of sexiness. it's a bold color, and you can definitely look bold in the apt.9 lace chemise for only $16.80 from kohls. i would recommend it only for wear in your boudoir...but you could be bold and layer it under a blazer or a jacket if you feel like it.


i don't know how many people wear red eyeshadow, but if you do you can purchase bright, blood red eyeshadow from fredflare.com from medusa makeup.


if i was to wear a red dress anytime soon i'd love to have the option of either that rachel roy or marc jacobs strapless wonder(s) [located in the top left corner]. the cut of both the dresses are so flirty and the red hues really add to the bold feel of the dress.


will you be wearing red anytime soon?


p.s. sorry for the barely readable text on the collage!

  10. Red lipstick is the easiest way to add red to an outfit, that Kohl's chemise is lush, I'd wear it with black jeans for the evening or as you suggested, under a blazer for a daytime look.

  15. I know, right??? What is it about evaporated milk and cereal. It's like I'm "being bad" and having this amazing dessert (that is in fact, actually a healthy one! hahah!)

    I'll admit, I sometimes still pass by the Barbie aisle, when given the chance... =]

    I get scared of going into the bathroom after hearing/seeing a scary story or movie too. If there's a shower curtain I have to open it REALLY quickly. hahahha! Oh and I used to make up "lives" and fun stories with my Barbie dolls too. I pretended they were always going to a fancy party or Ball to find the perfect Prince. :P
