• the color red:

  • i guess i’m just in the holiday spirit. my love of red always goes in phases but for me it is very “in” to wear red. i love these items above. earlier i posted a number of red shoes and clutches when searching for my holiday attire but after flipping through the December Vogue i was left yearning for more ruby colored shoes (think The Wizard of Oz–if you’ve read the new Vogue (which who hasn’t!) you’ll know what I mean) marc jacobs has the ruby slippers down! these ones I found on zappos but they are on sale and are the last pair so if you have big feet you’re in luck, if you’re me you’re still searching!

    • ella moss veronique cap sleeve top $92–has the perfect cut and is so me… i love the cap sleeves
    • the elusive marc jacobs ruby slippers @ zappos
    • ballets russes skirt $128 at anthropologie–versatile and pretty enough said
    • marc jacobs red aya jersey blouse $168–i love how this ties around the waist
    • spruce street peep toes $158 this red open toe wedge from anthropolgie seems like it would be walkable (and being in nyc and not quite of socialite status, thereby being unable to justify cabs every two seconds this is v. important and makes them THAT much more desirable)- i don’t think i’ve seen anything like this before but i think they would be perfect with trousers and maybe dark jeans.
    • this red sweater coat $128 seems just perfect to wear over a pretty skirt because it is feminine and not bulky or scraggly. i hate sweaters that make girls look like bums. i just so can’t pull off the mary kate and ashley garb (maybe that has something to do with weighing more than two pounds)

  • Bobbi Brown shimmer ink eyeliner -(Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner Collection)–i use chocolate shimmer everyday–it has the tiniest flecs of metallic gold to add a bit of punch but doesn’t over do it. it really does last all day and with the right brush is a cinch to apply! I use the brush pictured. $18 it comes in four shades: Sapphire Shimmer, Chocolate Shimmer, Ivy Shimmer, and Graphite Shimmer

  • fun luggage tags: i have to travel soon (xmas to the fabulous state of iowa i’m sure you’ve heard of it once or twice in the fourth grade)

    Wow, I love the Ella Moss cap sleeve top and the red heels so much! Am still on the search for the Perfect Red Heels.
