Gal About Red- brace yourself for a VERY red style story! Red is slowly creeping up on me and taking over my wardrobe one piece at a time. I don’t think I have ever had this much of accumulated red pieces my whole life combined, hell, I don’t even remember wearing red this much up until a year ago… Maybe circa 1992, I felt like red shoes are my thing… Without further ado, here’s an ode to the colour red and my rediscovery of no-end-in-sight-kinda-love for it!
I like my red lipstick – just a quick glimpse at my Instagram will be enough – and I like my red nail polish, but red clothes… a whole new level for me. I love my nudes, any shade of beige will send shivers down my spine (is this how Kim Kardashian feels as well?) but I started liking this colour thingie that I can pin it on as far as last year. I remember buying this cute little red tea dress in Hong Kong and ever since I’m obsessed. I noticed it that it was subtly creeping on me… then it followed with a red jumper, then another red dress… and another, and here we are today!
Apart from the colour – which is beyond me, because I really live for this shade of red – so vibrant, I feel dizzy – I just love the shape of this blouse sooooo much! Though to be frank, sometimes I feel like Jerry Seinfeld in the “Puffy Shirt” episode – must be the sleeves BUT I’M LOVIN’ it. I’m not sure if this blouse would show its incredible beauty if it was in another colour, the red is a match-made in heaven. I even had a “if Instagram was real-life” interaction the other day; someone came up to me and asked where I got it from… Guess “it’s all tagged” not really applicable to this situation.
Can we take a moment to talk about this bag from Parfois, please? Pure coincidence, but also because I like the contrast of this bag combine with anything red. I wore this bag to death in Miami… especially with this, again, super red tea dress. The whole wicker bag vibe it gives, plus the beige and black with gold details… is the perfect combination to win my heart at the bag front!
Speaking of wearing things to death, this pair of earrings definitely make it to the top of the list. I talked about this on my previous style post, you can see them in action here. There’s just something about them, I cannot stop wearing them… take they any, but any outfit to the next level, so then how could not wear them… literally everyday?
Last but not least, these red slides… They are giving me all the Miu Miu/ Bally vibes with that big same colour/material buckle. I kinda pat myself on the shoulder with this purchase, as there was the black option but I went for these red ones… And I’m so glad that I did because these shoes… pair them with anything, like my evergreen earrings here, they just make it look 100 times better!
Are you on board with my red enthusiasm? Tell me which colour(s) you are feeling this summer!
