Ravishing Red


Good morning, loves! How's the week treating you so far?  Mine's as busy and crazy as usual.  Unfortunately this is becoming my norm lately.  I was hoping to leave all of the craziness behind in Spetember but it seems to have followed me into October...

Anyway, enough of my complaining.  Let's go onto another color crush of mine.  Besides burgundy or oxblood red I'm also really head over heels for true reds.  The brighter and richer the better in my book.  I can't get enough of my red jeans, Love Quotes red scarf and my favorite nail color, Essie's Lollipop.  I've been wearing them nonstop lately.  And to tell you the truth, this color looks amazing with burgundy so I've been combining my two color crushes quite a bit this season.

What color are you crushing over lately?

Have a wonderful day, sweets!

xoxo

Gorgeous photos. Red is one of my favorite colours! I think it's a very intense colour (but in a good way) and very ladylike. Thank you for sharing, have a great week.

Current Color crush? Hmmm, i really like brights mixed with neutrals these days - every day something different!

Essie lollipop is one of my favorites as well!!! In fact, I think you may have just inspired me to go paint my nails in that very shade ;) Hope you have a lovely day.

Ah! RED!...A little bit of red goes a long way...
I usually use it in small doses, but, eventually a large amount of this strong color brings me tons of confidence!
A big hug!

Red and Burgundy are indeed a striking color combination. I'm excited that burgundy is such a hot color for fall because I have such a color crush on it right now.

Hope the madness dies down for you soon. I've been quite busy since getting back from vacation last week. Must be the change in seasons ;)

Oh yes!!! Love red especially just the right shade of lipstick or nail-varnish. I also read that red varnish on well manicured nails makes hands look much younger. I'll take that ;-)

Laura said...

I have red nails this week and they are definitely brightening up my days at work. :)

bestie said...

ooh, you just inspired me to re-incarnate my favorite sweater with a big red heart in the middle!

I love red. It's my husband and oldest daughter's favourite colour as well! I paint my nails all kinds of colours, but I love nothing more than looking down and seeing a deep red on my nails, it makes me smile :) A red dress or something like that, I just adore. I hope some of the stresses will leave you doll and you'll be relaxed and stress free! A BIG hug to you xox
