I love the idea that you can admire something from afar, and appreciate it on others, but not need to add it to your closet. Unfortunately, that’s not usually how it goes for me LOL; I admire something, and immediately try and figure out a way to add it to my own wardrobe. This is one of my biggest shopping challenges, but I strive to overcome it. Perhaps by talking about them here, and posting the things I “covet,” they’ll lose their hold on me? I just need to get them out of my head somehow, and onto a page, like writing a diary, and then I can let them go? It has actually worked for some things in the past.
So, let’s try again. Here goes: I have really been wanting to add another red piece to my wardrobe for a while. Since I bought the Eileen Fisher dress this summer actually. And I don’t know if it’s a trendy color now, or if it’s because of Christmas, but all sorts of red has been popping up on my radar lately, and I love it.
But I don’t wear color. I don’t like red with black, so that limits what I’d wear red with substantially. Not practical. But still…
Here are some pieces I’m loving lately:
Samantha Pleet infinity sweater
Very tempted by this…and it wouldn’t be nearly as cropped on me
Elizabeth Suzann silk florence pants in Rust
These aren’t really red red, which I like.
If anything, these are what I would get – I would wear this color with black 🙂
APL Techloom phantom sneakers
I need to replace my nikes soon, maybe a red sneaker is a good way to do red?? But speaking of shoes, I’ve long loved these Rachel Comey Dahl mules and these embroidered mules (which look like slippers my grandmother used to wear, and makes me love them even more…) with just a little red in them…
And just because we’re already talking about shopping…there are some good things on sale at Shopbop and an additional 25% off for the last day today:
I have added and removed this Rachel Comey jacket from my cart a million times already…and I highly recommend this James Perse high gauge tee, which is $38 after the discount. I have it in burgundy and it’s one of my favorite tees. I’ve also been stalking this James Perse jumpsuit FOREVER. If it was in stock in a size 1 or 2 I’d probably get it. Ugh.
Also, Mill Mercantile has Barbour classic jackets on sale – and if you order from Garmentory, and have a $20 credit in your account (which you get by signing up via my referral link), they’re an even better price. I don’t mean to beat my referral link with a dead horse, but I truly love Garmentory and want to make sure everyone gets their $20 credit. $20 is not nothing…
Happy Thursday! Do you wear red? Have you noticed a lot of red around lately?
