Don't you think the colour red has magic power? It goes with everything, it can lift your mood, and makes you feel more confident. Red lipstick makes me feel sophisticated. And while neutrals may be eternally cool, red never fails to make an outfit.
When I posted recently about winter-appropriate skirts, I didn't yet own a quilted circle skirt. I sweet-talked my darling into buying me this one so that my winter wardrobe would be complete. Isn't the ballet slipper applique adorable? The shoes are in black velvet, and you can't really see it but they've got red pompoms on the toes. The last time I wore it I teamed it with a black sweater, but this time I decided to go for RED.
Have I mentioned how awesome cashmere is? It's lightweight but very warm - perfect for autumn days - and isn't bulky, so won't add inches to your waistline.
I'm so pleased with my beehive! I know, I wear a beehive practically every time I don a circle skirt, I'm so unimaginative. But, meh - it's just so much fun playing Brigitte Bardot.
Also, believe it or not, this is with no backcombing at all - that's just how much volume my hair has. Sometimes it's good having thick hair.
