Seeing Red

Of all colors, I think red is the most intimidating color to wear. There's just no way to blend in. I ventured into this color slowly, first with bright lipstick, next with a small cross-body, then a dark red sweater, and finally, the brightest of them all, a red blazer. That's it! The craving for red has been satisfied.

Happy Tuesday, everyone!

  1. I love the color red and I would have to agree that when you wear it, you can't just blend into the background. It's a great color. Love outfit.

  5. That color is stunning on you! I like (dark) red so much but afraid of bright one. I feel uncomfortable in it.

    I've been craving for colored pants. Just feeling so weird (anything colorful makes me uncomfortable for a while) but happy wearing them

    1. I bet the first step to getting over your bright red fear is to wear bright yellow ;)

    1. I find dark red/burgundy to be a great baby step into the red family. The color is being touted as the "it" color this season (or does that happen every fall?) so there should be a lot of options if you ever find yourself wanting to give this color a try.
