seeing red

prada

As I peruse the pages of Vogue’s September issue I’m reminded that red is trending in a maje way.  Within the first ten pages, Prada, Dior and Ralph Lauren all have campaign imagery demonstrating this hot fall/winter color.   I’m a forever fan of a red lip, but am excited to work the tone into my overall styling.  Whether it be a sweater, bold pant or pop in an accessory, I will definitely be seeing red this season.  A few key pieces that make the cut…

I have been eye’ing these See by Chloe booties for weeks and finally pulled the trigger – they are in route to my house, oh yeah!  An investment for fall but like I mentioned here, certain items are worth the expense – boots one of them in my shopping rule book.  These should take me through a few seasons, hitting both fashion and function objectives.  I’m loving the trending chunky heel which will prove to be comfortable for traipsing around the city.  The gold hardware satisfies my edgy side while the sleek silhouette keeps things sexy and classic.  Similar styles like this from Pour La Victoire, these amazing cut out booties by Tibi and these from Steve Madden are also pretty sweet.  I have outfit ideas coming out of my ears which are looking something like this…
