Random Red Things







     Any fans of the color red out there? We are preparing for an art show this week and burning the candle at both ends so wearing red helps keep up my energy. This week this post is a selection of photos with the color red as the theme. In the spirit of trying something new, I made the dress/tunic with legging a fashion challenge for myself.
     Another type of casual outfit I wear often is all one color like this red jacket and red jeans. I like to style outfits like this in blue or green depending on my mood. And of course red shoes and handbags are fun to add to an outfit just about any day.

  1. Red is my favorite color - and red and black together are always my goto colors when I need to add some punch to my usual black. These are fantastic outfits - and of course, loving those booties. Thanks for the reminder, I think I'm pulling mine out today! Hmmm, didn't know that red was an energizer, so perhaps that's why I like it - I always am in need of more energy (I thought red made you hungry (ie, McDonalds?!) and that was probably why I was drawn to it, haha!!)

  2. As a blond I was a big fan of red. As a redhead it is much harder to work with.

    Good luck with your show! I know how busy those can make you.

  3. I love red! The Rachel Roy tunic is fantastic, and I really like how you've styled it. I hope to see it again on the blog. Have a great time at your upcoming art show...I'm sure you are stepping into a very busy season.

  4. Red is a very dynamic colour, I love the first look with the Black pants, and your red bag is most desirable!

  7. and ...Fashion item Friday? Come on over and share your 'red' item(s). That would be a red-hot thing to do and you would be so blue-hue cool for doing so. LOL I love the black leggings with the open shoes (well the heel and toe parts). Your style sense is MARVELOUS.

  8. Yes, Yes, Yes.. i´m a big fan of the color red. Red is so great for clothing even as a touch of red, like a bag or shoes. I really like your all over red outfit.
    Dear Ann, do you have own Pinterest Side? I can´t find yourself in Pinterest. Have a nice weekend, Cla

  9. As always exquisite pictures and I do love red. The tunic outfit is wonderful. The tunic itself has a bit of a 60's vibe which I love. I trust the exhibition goes well for you and I would love to hear about it afterwards.

  10. Lady in red!!! Red used to be my favorite colors when I was in my 20s, but I lost the taste of it right when I started my early 30s. Now, it's calling me again, however, I am loving the deepest shades of red this time. You look fantastic in red, and I love how you pair the tunic with chic leggings and peep-toe shoes. Both looks are sweet.

  11. You're busy!! Red does amp up the energy and you wear it well. Your studio shot is great (love the sheet!!). I'll use red as an accent, and sometimes I almost crave it, just a spot.

    Have a glorious week. XXOO

  12. Red in definitely an high energy color and is perfect for you to wear while preparing for your show. You look fabulous in red and all your shots are great. Best of luck at your show.

  13. I love that stone building! And those rocks aren't small, either - impressive!

    Red leather is just about the most gorgeous thing to have for accessories. I love any colored leather (hardly own any) but in red it's just so rich. And yet, I like your first outfit best, even without red leather.

    I hope your art show goes well. Show us some pictures?

  21. Exquisite pieces, fantastically combined. Love too the mix of soaring, climbing, circular, grounded, and simmering energies of the backdrops, together with your outfits just perfect in anticipation of your show. All best with it!

    1. Ah Amber you are right. Mixing these backgrounds does describe what it is like before a show. I didn't see this. You are very insightful!

  25. Red is so becoming on you. I love the color but sometimes feel I have to tone it down a bit as I get older.
    I wish you and your husband much success with the art show - you are both so talented!

  26. According with some fashion experts, red is the new black this season! I like a touch of that colour in autumn...
    your bag and pumps are wonderful and your second outfit is casual and very nice on you.
    I wish you a great success with the show...( your delicate mechanical art works impressed me )

  30. A Lady in Red can always make a statement, whether it be with an all red ensemble, a pair of little red shoes, a red scarf, or a fabulous red jacket. And you are the perfect example and model to show us this. Plus, I agree, wearing red tends to give us much needed energy.Good luck with your up and coming show this week.

  32. I love red too! If it is up to my husband he's buy me all red things as he thinks red is my color and suits my personality. I love your red jacket, very casual yet smart at the same time. Love the open toe sling back booties too :)

  35. I love that you conceptualize color. That's the whole reason that I find clothing interesting. It's another medium, and such a personal vehicle for expression. Not just color, but the response to shapes and references. Just wish I was a better canvas!
    Love your items on you, and your thinking. Can't wait to see vid of the show ... hint, hint, HINT!!!!!
    Cadmium red is not an immediate choise for me ... take it a bit deeper with other color influences and I'm all over it. But, like all colors ... sometimes nothing else will do!

    1. Thanks Jan, I'm trying to think of different types of posts. I've done many outfit and accessory posts so I'm thinking of some new types for the future. I'm going to do one from the studio soon. Photographed today and it is snowing tonight. I am going to wait on the studio until the weather gets more difficult to manage. I see you in deeper colors as you mentioned. My hardest color to wear is white and burgundy with a purple tint.

  36. So gorgeous! You can never go wrong with pops of red.


    Have a great week!

  40. I've been wearing a lot more red in the past year or so than I ever did before, mostly by adding red accessories that mix well with the black and neutrals I already have. Maybe it's the powerful energy? :)

  41. Just shaking my head in agreement with that red bag. It makes me want to switch purses (which I never do). DOes it have dividers inside?
    PS. Wanted you to know I got my Calvin Klein shoes, wore them and loved loved loved them!
    Pss. Link up this week? http://stillblondeafteralltheseyears.com/2013/11/foxcroft-collection-fall-lineup-verizon-voices-fashionista-style-hop/

  42. Yet another dazzling environment for a dazzling outfit. Shoes on a grate, a handbag in a tree - I wish I could find these things sprouting out of the landscape here. Awesome. I agree, red is a real power booster.

  43. Any fans of RED?!? You wouldn't know it from my blog design at the time but it has always been my favorite color. Tempting to change things up a bit...maybe for the holidays. :) LOVE the shoes, both the red and the black. Gorgeous!!
