lady in red...



Speaking of fabulous coats... i'm always on the lookout for the perfect red one. It's so bold! Yet oh-so-chic... I can never seem to come across the perfect shade of red though. What about you? Do you own a red coat?

I adore red coats! Have always wanted to wear one, but with my red hair, I fear I would look like one tiny tomato walking down the street ;)

My Mom, though, has at least 5, and pulls them off so well! It's times like this that I wish I had her French coloring rather than my Dutch coloring. (fair skin, blue eyes and strawberry-blonde hair)

p.s Stills made an amazing one this past winter - check it out:

Hope you're having a wonderful day, Daniella, xo

What a great statement piece.You can only feel great in coats like those.

Sarah - The shape of that coat is just perfect! Now, if only they were tailored for petite gals too, lol...

Chic Coles - Definitely a statement piece!

I'm happy to report that I do! The boyfriend surprised me with beautiful deep red Kenneth Cole trench coat for Valentine's Day last year {the sweetie} + I adore it. Though it's such a statement, even I like to save it for truly special occasions.

These ladies certainly serve as inspiration!

Cheers.

I have a fabulous Aquascutum yellow coat but nope - no red. :( I'm inspired to get a red blazer though for spring. Has anyone spotted an affordable one out on the market anywhere?
