Wearing Red Like a Matador? Ole!
Red is a color I respect . It’s vibrancy and aweless nature remind me of the courage it takes to confront your fears, stand tall in an intimidating situation, or achieve the things you may want so bad but are terrified to accept into your life. Red is representative of an unstoppable resolution to set out and grab your goals by the cojones, it’s tasting victory, it’s owning your style and standing out.
I wear red to remind myself that I chose to be fabulous. My passion for style is more than exchanging greetings, it’s exploring a new idea and being adventurous with your findings. This red coat, may have only been $39.00 at Joe Fresh, but I find it’s the style and presence of the cut that I love so much.
It’s unassuming material is literally unwrinkleable and in fact comes with it’s own bag to stuff the thing into for easy travel. It’s unlined and as I found out from the epic storm that transpired after this photo shoot… it’s also waterproof.
I prefer to pop the collar like a D-bag but you can wear it however you like.
I also chose to style it with a Margiela X H&M dress shirt complete with sewn on bow tie and my new black dENiZEN from Levi’s jeans gifted to me by Target. The studded shoes are from B2 paired with a Gucci belt and Chanel sunnies.
