Revelling in Red

PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket

Good morning, lovelies! Hope you're having a fabulous week so far.

Lately I've had a major obsession with all things red. I didn't realize it until yesterday when I made yet another red purchase with my Chanel Dragon painted fingers while wearing a recently purchased red Love Quotes scarf . Can you say addicted much?

My latest purchase was an Urban Expressions Chelsea Clutch in red from Open Sky. A friend of mine had purchased the clutch in another color earlier in the day and when I saw the look of the clutch, the price...only $30!!!, and the color red, I was instantly sold. I'm new to Open Sky but I'm liking what I'm seeing so far. Here's an invite if you're interested :)

Enjoy the day, sweets!

xoxo

I adore red when it comes to accessories, like my high heel red sandals or suede pumps. They make a simple outfit look fabulous.

Thank you!!! I am always a bit weary of wearing my red shoes...but this looks so great I might just try it again this weekend. :)

Oh I love this - I am a huge fan of bright red! But it kinda comes and goes for me... right now I'm more into darker colors (but you've made me realize how great you can combine burgundy and red so I'm totally planning on doing that!)

Have a great day!

Red in fall is my fave! It's cold & rainy in LA today and I just brighten things up with a bit of red.

Jacki said...

Me too, Dawn! Red is just drawing me in this fall. And I have always maintained that every woman should have a fabulous pair of red shoes. Hehe.

I really thought that I was kind of over bold red...you just proved me wrong! I guess it will always be a hot color!

Much love,

Loving those skinnies with the heel. I wish my skinnies are that skinny. Very sleek and fun.

Mary Jo at TrustYourStyle said...

I think I'm right there with you and that last image is inspiring me to get a pair of red pumps {just got a red tartan blazer}. Can't wait to see a pic of your new clutch Dawn!

This made me realize I need to pick up Chanel Dragon :)

Elena said...

When I'm thinking about something red, it appears in my mind the image of Eva Longoria. Red is one of the most powerful color! No wonder is so dancerous!

Bravoe Runway said...

Similarly to you, I am also a huge fan of Red! I finally decided to go and get a red lipstick, a colour I thought for ages would not look good on me, but I was mistaken. Your new clutch is gorgeous, and thank you for the invite!

Sunny & Star said...

You are not the only one that is currently totally obsessed with red. Red has never been one of my favorite colors but lately I cannot get enough of it. I'm craving a red coat.

Draffin Bears said...

Hi Dawn,

I love red also, especially for winter as it seems to brighten up things. Hope that you are having a lovely week

LOVE this post. I'm finding myself becoming more and more interested in red. I would have bought red boots recently if they had been available in my size; it's a long time since I had red shoes.

Congrats on your new clutch and post as much red as you want ;-)
