Lucky in red

Firstly, a big ‘Thank You’ to all of you for my birthday wishes yesterday. I really appreciate all the comments and emails I received, you guys make all this blogging worthwhile!? 

Today I thought I’d share a little red inspiration for you. I love using splashes of red in interiors and of course a red dress can be so striking and glamorous! Doesn’t Reese look gorgeous in the pics below? Funnily enough, I’m not mad about wearing red myself. What about you, are you a fan of red?

    I hardly have anything red in my cupboard, but when I do wear red – people always compliment me? Every winter I tell myself I am going to buy a red jacket, maybe this is the year . . . πŸ˜‰

    Belated Happy Birthday for yesterday! Hope you were spoilt rotten!! That red dress looks fabulous on Reese! I keep seeing red skinny jeans popping up all over the place – I have got to get myself a pair!

    Colores I think I have the same problem, I don't want to draw any extra attention!

    But having said that, I am after a red coat for this winter like Tania! Perhaps it will be my first red piece?!

    Thanks for the birthday wishes Meghan!

    I love red, don't mind wearing it, though I haven't for a while, and Reese looks amazing in this shoot!

    Hi Lana,
    Sorry I missed your b-day but Happy belated Birthday!
    And I like red in clothing but not in my home… but seeing it in these pics makes me wonder, should I?
    Have a good week!

    I "heart" red @ home but not so much in my wardrobe.
    That pic of Reese with the elephant is AWESOME!

    I love red, but it really has to be the right shade. A great cherry red or russian red is gorgeous. But a little goes a long way! NOW if I can just master the art of red lips without looking like my 4-year old applied my Mac red for me!!

    Happy belated birthday, Lana!! πŸ™‚ I'm so glad to be feeling a bit better so I can start reading your lovely posts again. πŸ™‚ I'm a HUGE fan of red. It's all over my house, on my favorite dresses and shoes, and sparkling away on my favorite ring. πŸ™‚

    OMG – that red on Reese is totally sexy. I would fancy that on someone such as Penny Cruz, with her darker complexion and hair, it would be equally sexy.
