"We are cronicly insicure. We are afraid to do wrong and to dare. We hate certainties but the only chance we take is our too high heels' one. We look for refuge, and not just from the cold weather, in our grey coat that, you know, is perfect in every look. We hide our will of being noticed behind a natural lip-gloss. We are devoted to black, we adore blue and we are conquered by the sober beige. But rarely we go beyond those colours. And leave in a drawer our shyness and take out a maxi coral pull, maybe in one of those days when even the hot black coffee has no effect. Be gained by the loudy elegance of a scarlet coat, when the sky is grey and the rain is persistent. Fall into tempation of a pair of purple sandals, to pass from the bed to the street. Leave our doubts behind and wear a carmine dress. Coloure our day with a little detail that talks about us, our energy, our femininity and our will to show up. Rarely we can lapse into red power.. and, in my opinion, this is so wrong!!".
I'm just loving the red explosion showing up this fall. It's one of those trends that nobody talked much about when Fall fashions hit the runway last February, but has been cropping up organically on people's streetstyles. I'm having a sudden red gown and bag craving! Maybe some feathers too.
