An Outfit (Deconstructed)...







My closet is conspicuously devoid of red...

I'm just not a red girl, it's not my color. But a few weeks ago, I wore this outfit to my friend Sam's house for dinner, and my favorite part (besides that cut-out action on the back of the shirt, which I have to say, I really dig) were the little pops of red that made their way into the get-up. They were sneaky -- a little tassel on my Clare Viver clutch, a section of thread on my necklace, some lip gloss, but somehow they made the outfit a little more interesting. All of the sudden it was more than just your standard black skirt/fun shirt combo.

Red...who knew?








The Details:
  • Shirt -- Urban Outfitters
  • Skirt -- Ann Taylor Loft
  • Clutch -- Clare Vivier
  • Necklace -- Madewell
  • Shoes -- Pollini

totally with you.... i used to not be interested in red, it never allured me, now, i find it sneaks its way into my closet. it started with accessories, a handbag, some earrings, now red shoes are my favorite and i even wear red skirts. be open, you never know....

same with navy, i confused classic with dowdy when i was young; now it is one of my favorite colors....
