STYLE INSPIRATION NO. 9
This has nothing to do with L.O.V.E or Hearts or Strawberries or anything ... I just thought of a full splash of the most auspicious colour I could think of before we descend into autumn (yes sorry, the word is out, now!)
I've been very fortunate to be able to pick some of my fave pieces out of the Designer Sale happening upstairs at the St. Michael's Hospice Charity Shop, Queens Rd, Hastings at the moment, and they were, starting with the piece de la resistance being a sumptious pair of red wool Claude Montana high waisted Marlene Dietrich trousers with a frilly silky ivory blouse with covered button cuffs (which I saw were recently sold), red braces and a red wool school blazer: Delicious. Also I found a red beaded tie-back top, some (fake) snakeskin shoes, a red suede belt, a vintage red Christian Dior perfume box, a red leather clutch bag and a red wollen 60s hat.
RED is an amazing colour, it spells danger and safety at the same time, and you have to be up for it to wear it ... Are you? Then come out to play with fire ... like Scarlet O'Hara ...
