Red, no pink

Even though red is officially my Second Favorite Color, I don’t own much in the way of red clothing. Weird. So when Susi at the 4th Street Boutique (we’re working on a special project I’ll post about later!) pointed out this bright orangey-red skirt, I tried it on and immediately fell in love. It’s long! It’s made of cozy felted wool! It has pockets!*

I don’t really do all-out holiday theme dressing, so I paired it with my mom’s old off-the-shoulder top, a leopard print blouse (you’ll be seeing a LOT of this), and black suede boots. No pink.

Thrifted blouse, skirt, and boots; vintage top, belt, and hat

If we were in elementary school, I’d give you one of these today:

Happy Valentine’s Day!

*Note to designers: Everything should have pockets. I’m thinking about starting a campaign to make sure my demands are met.

    It doesn’t have a flattering shape, although the colour is “passable”.

    Hello, I don’t think I’ve commented before but your blog has been in my feed reader for a while. I love how you layered in the animal print blouse! Your outfit was partial inspiration for the animal prints I added to my spring capsule wardrobe selections and I linked to your blog there, hope you don’t mind. 🙂
