I really love the colour red, but I don't like having it close to my face. I long to wear red clothing! We've all seen the pictures of the fall 2009 Built By Wendy collection, with its charming pops of red through all the black (above). I have fire all through my astrological chart (Leo rising, moon in Sagittarius). Maybe it's time for a new transformation: maybe once I embrace red and start wearing it, I will become a more confident version of myself! Let that Leo roar, etc. I truly think I am a red girl underneath it all. I really am a funny sort of intro-extrovert!
I have made attempts. You may have noticed the red skirt I was wearing under my coat: that skirt is my red skirt from Minimarket that I bought at Robber this summer. It is my favourite skirt, which is high praise from a girl who wears skirts almost every day.
This coat is from Built By Wendy fall 2008, and it's the same pattern as the one I made. When I found this picture recently I did wish I had picked red wool over charcoal.
Incidentally, persimmon is the shade for next spring! Remember it.
