Pop of Red

Red has always been one of my favorite colors to wear. It’s bold, it’s a power color, and it gives me yet another excuse to wear red lipstick! So, it’s ironic that I don’t actually own a lot of red. I have maybe one red dress that’s very sweet with eyelets from ASOS that’s strictly a summer dress. I get a lot of use out of it in Texas, but we do indeed have winter. Oh, but I do have this killer red sweater with a raccoon on it… it’s amazing, I swear but not very versatile or well… adult… for that matter. That’s why I was thrilled to find these two red pieces this fall! And trust me, I’ve been getting a lot of use out of them!





Now, I see a lot of pink in my  near future now that warmer weather is on it’s way, but I’m going to be holding on to popping reds for just a bit longer!

On another note, I just had to bring up Her, which I saw last night.


AND the movie poster is red… win, win. Anyway, if you have yet to see this movie, do yourself a favor and go see it. It’s more than just a romantic comedy. Many may argue that it’s been done before… A.I., Centennial Man… even Pinocchio. But, then again everything really is a remix of something else before it. What makes this so unique and impactful is that it speaks volumes to where our society is today. Our faces buried in our phones, our dependency on technology… it just says so much in a mere two hours. I took a class in college called reading media critically, where we would basically pick apart article, movies, tv shows and find the true meat of it, and this movie just has so much to it. I would have loved to write about it for that class! Seriously, go see it!

Until next time!

    i’ve always kind of been afraid of wearing the color red, but i could totally see myeslf incorporating this scarf into my wardrobe, it’s lovely! and thanks for the review and recommendation of the movie her; i’ve seen the trailer and previews but wasn’t quite sure what it was really all about or if i’d enjoy it… it sounds like i would!

      Thank you! I’m really not a scarf girl, but I just had to have this one :)

      And yes it is a must see! I will forewarn you that it is rated R for a very good reason haha it’s a tad raunchy at parts. Which I wasn’t expecting. But it’s mostly tasteful. Other than that it is easily one of the best movies in years!!

    I love the print of your scarf! I don’t have much red in my closet either and I’m not sure why. I guess I tend to gravitate towards other colors!
