Just a POP! of Red

Red is always in style it seems no matter what. It’s the “IT” trend that never stops trending. It’s classic, sophisticated, fun, wild, free, expressive, romantic, young, fresh and oh so “NOTICE ME!” It’s the one bit of makeup you can wear on a fresh makeup free face for a piece of glamour, or radiance. It makes the face seem complete and refreshed. My personal favorite color of red is Estée Lauder’s #340 ENVY. It goes on so smooth and it has a bit of a sheen. Very pretty and satiny.


This lipstick color went great with this particular outfit I wore today as it was my Black & White Preppy Skater-Like look, shall we say. I wore my white no iron cotton shirt from Banana Republc with this cool little crop top with a very interesting crop vest/top in black and grey also from Banana Republic with my oh so cool vegan leather black pants that fit like tights from  Club Monaco.


Complete with my Ecco Red Sneakers. Especially with my  cast off and surgery behind me and unbendable toe, flat and comfortable shoes are the way of the future for me. So these babies are totally up my isle. Cool, hip and made for hop alongs like me right now. Plus they matched my lipstick, who could refuse? They add that casual approach but don’t make the outfit look dumpy but rather the opposite. It all looks thought out and put together. Especially with the little add on’s of the jewellery. Which is sparse but adds a bit of dress up to this other wise casual outfit. I love mixing dressy with casual as it pleases my Gemini personalities

Bangles from Nordstrom in a variety of different colors and sizes (check them out) and also these fabulous Kate Spade earrings that go with all black, white and grey ensembles, even an all white outfit would benefit from these beauties.

In closing this editorial I just want to take this time to thank the color RED for making it possible in donating it’s brilliance to give this piece some gusto!
