joannaladrido 's Thoughts:

Whoever said Red can only accent Black and White is limiting the possibilities because I am a firm believer that red can accent everything!

It was a supposed CHILL day dedicated to relaxation which turned out to be ultimately disastrous and very very stressful. But whatever the outcome of the rather disappointing day I’m glad that I faced the tribulations head on with a fab outfit that made me extra-fierce and confident especially when dealing with such matters.

This was a pretty last minute outfit which somehow worked perfectly! I love the red accents- it made the outfit somehow bolder and pop out. And since it was a major color to work with, I had to keep everything else as bare and minimal as possible.

Red is a sexy color. Think of the lady in red who turns the heads of every red blooded man around her. Think of the Hollywood starlet in her beautiful red gown. Or Julia Roberts, so radiant, so beautiful in her red gown in Pretty Woman.

The irony is that red is one color that few women dare wear.

Some women feel that red is too glaring. Some tried wearing red dresses and felt they looked like fire engines instead. Granted, red is an attention grabbing color. Not for someone who wants to disappear in the crowd. But if you want to be a star, if you are sick of being the perpetual wallflower red is the color to wear.

Oh I love it I completely agree with you, often I have those hard days where they never seem to end but it's always a little easier to get through if your dressed nicely. Red is hard to wear during the day!!! But I think you have pulled it off here.
