st valentine’s red


Until recently, I’d avoided wearing red clothing. I don’t really know why – just one of those things I suppose. However, now I can’t seem to get enough of the colour! I’m still searching for the perfect red striped t-shirt though. Any suggestions?

    I've never been bold enough to wear red! Maybe one day, haha. Love those shoes, btw.

      I think I was always put off by the harshness of the colour. I love teaming it with light blue denim and light brown things instead of typical black and white.

      Thanks! The skirt actually used to be a dress, and it was such a lovely dress, but I never wore it (just TOO MUCH synthetic fabric – the pit falls of thrifting haha). So I gave it the chop and now get so much more wear out of it.

    Red is making its way more and more into my wardobe. I bought very similar shoes on the weekend from Target πŸ™‚

      Ooh will have to check it out! I'm after a black pair now (kind of addicted to this style haha) but the only other really nice pair I'd spotted were at Tony Bianco and ridiculously overpriced.

    See, I've always loved red, one of my favourite coats is that colour, and I guess having such a bright colour can be considered a "statement". For tees, have you looked in the men's section of H&M? And I'm not sure whether Aubin and Wills ship to Australia, but they have some nice ones too. xx

      We don't have H&M here. Sad face. Maybe I should con one of my overseas friends to do my dirty work for me hahaha.

    American Apparel stuff felt nice when I went there, but I am reluctant to actually recommend it because I don't know what fit is like.
    Just remember – blue jeans a cane is soooo 90's πŸ˜›

    Red striped shirt: H&M. I manage to find a new one every single year somehow. Always slightly different but always perfectly soft and stripey!

    I love all your red, I wish I had more to wear!

      Two recs for H&M – I think we have a winner! Now, I just need to find out how to get my hands on them here in Aus.

    Try Ebay. That's where I found mine. Use the key words red, white, striped top/t-shirt. Good luck and I hope you find the perfect one!!
    Come and have a little peek at my blog if you like-details are below. x

      Ohh I thrifted mine – used to be a dress actually. But my friend was wearing a really nice pleated one the other day that I think she bought from Sussan of all places?
