Welcome to the weekend ladies! I usually associate weekends with relaxing and recharging but that’s all changed. With our house pending, the pressure is on to find a place to live. I’m glad we decided to rent which relieves the pressure of choosing the perfect spot to live but comes with its own set of challenges. Most places won’t take pets. Of course, Lucy isn’t a pet, she’s a member of our family but landlords see her as an animal. Go figure. The competition for rental properties is as hot as the market to sell so we will be looking long and hard for a place we’re willing to live in whose owner is willing to have us.
After my DRD yesterday, I got thinking about red. Its an emotionally intense color that’s associated with power, danger, passion, and determination that elicits a reaction and inspires us to take action. Wearing red is not for the faint of heart or shy among us and is seldom ignored. You’re more visible when you wear red and likely more of an extrovert.
In theory, I should love wearing red but I don’t. I have 2 red handbags (similar to above- on sale) and a few scarves with smatterings of red in them but few garments. I want to love wearing red and bring more of it into my wardrobe so I’m exploring some picks from weekend sales that may be easy to add.
A bag is an obvious choice and if you’re going to sling red across your chest why not do it with a tassel? This crossbody is similar to the gray one I have and is right on trend with its round shape. I love the shape of this bag but am not sure how practical it is for me because I prefer handbags that close securely with a zip or snap. This bag is a fun novelty to pull out summer after summer.
SHOP RED BAGS
Shoes should be a simple add to my predominantly neutral wardrobe and surprise…they are! I added these to my shopping cart the second I saw them.
These slides are unique with their wooden heel but too warm for my coloring, even on my feet. These suede slides would be great with skinny pants or jeans. These flats went into my shopping cart right away because I know this brand to be amazingly comfortable.

When choosing red for your wardrobe, look for the tone that matches your coloring. Very deep reds take more commitment and can easily overpower. The larger the garment the more intense the effect and solid red is more of a commitment than in a stripe or pattern. Breezy or sheer fabrics lesson the impact of red as does wearing it with other intense colors.
Red often enters the room before I do because it overwhelms my coloring. My personality can handle it but my skin tone can’t. Warm toned red makes me look ill so I gravitate to raspberry and plum. Red and white stripes look pink so I ordered this jacket. It looks warm-toned online but the reviews say it’s cool so I will let you know.
Do you wear red? Is it your signature color?
