Lady in Red

Several of the 2010 Fall RTW collections featured the color red. Red is such a bold, confident, and fun color to wear. 

{Bottega Veneta}
Here are a few of my favorite red items for the fall. (I have had my eye on this Madewell dress for a while now. )

I found this red and white BCBG blouse in the back of my closet and it seriously has to be at least 3 or  4 years old.   To create an updated look,  I added a wide black belt.  By the way is anyone else out there as crazy about wearing belts as I am? I feel like I wear belts all the time.  Anyway, I wore this comfortable outfit on a beautiful Sunday afternoon in Boston.

And here is an article from the online edition of Saturday’s WSJ titled : “Red is the Color of Confidence”

Do you like wearing red?

And red is one of my favorite colors! Very eye-catching! My favorite dress here is the 3rd one from the Bottega Veneta set!! So gorgeous!

Marissa said…

I feel like I look too pale in red, but it must look gorgeous with your skin tone. On another note, where have you been, lady? I haven't seen you all fashion week! Are you coming to the swap Thursday?

I havent worn red as a solid color – only in prints or in combination with some white or beige..I like the cherry red shade as compared to bright red..Love the first two Bottega veneta dresses!!

I love ur belt – it really makes the whole look very polished..

Stephanie said…

love the "red" post, although I'm not much of a red wearer. but i definitely need, excuse me, want that lotus rouge chanel nail polish.

i, too, ADORE belts, every day and every way.

coolkids said…

Love your outfit! Looks great on you. I don't look good in a lot of red b/c of my coloring. I did buy a cute red/gray striped sweater recently.

Beautiful blouse! I don't wear red nearly enough..but that Givenchy collection is enough to make me start! And those Louboutins are divine!


Elle said…

I don't own nearly enough red! I need more in my life and that madewell dress is so chic!

Jess said…

Oh girl – I want your entire outfit!!! Especially loving those black skinnies. You look gorgeous!



I love red! It's one of my favorite colors and I definitely have a decent amount of it in my wardrobe. I always found it to be that color that I would accent my otherwise fairly neutral wardrobe with. Love every single one of these pieces and that blouse you're wearing. Isn't it great when you rediscover an old piece?

Hope you had a wonderful weekend!

The Valentino collection is awesome and I love that 1st gown! LOVE red and I really like it on my husband. He thinks not, but it really looks great with his blue eyes. Me, I love it as well, but only in the summer when I have my tan kickin! Christmas would be an exception 🙂 LOVE your look!



style-haus said…
