This past weekend was glorious! With a well deserved weekend off, I caught up on many important things: sex and the city episodes, online shopping which involved a major chloe purchase, and my netflix wishlist which included Valentino: The Last Emperor. Watching Mr. Valentino prepare for his 45th Anniversary collection and retirement was riveting– and it also reminded me that I’ve been straight up sweatin’ the color red.I’ve managed to purchase a killer red jacket from j.crew (along with a bright red dress and sweet red pumps… opps). I’ve been rockin’ my favorite red mac lipstick for a while too. What is it about the color red that’s got me switching out the pink from my wardrobe? I think the reason why I love it most is it exudes confidence.
Considering refreshing your hangars with some new, vibrant red pieces. It’s a big color this year at j.crew and kate spade. My favorite way to wear red is to wear it from head to toe. Red dress? Check. Red jacket? Check. Red shoes, lips, belt and bag? Che-ck! Wearing all one color can be really dramatic and bold. I’d die to design an all red event with neutral touches! Someday I might be able to add the ultimate red piece to my collection: a red valentino. A girl can dream, right?
