A Color Cocktail...One For You and One For You

Last week something changed in me and all of a sudden I was all about color. First I blogged about red on red, and Rihanna's color block ensemble, then my mom sent me a photo of her looking amazing in a pair of red trousers in the 70s, then I went and saw You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger and Freida Pinto's character only wore red and then everywhere I looked I was seeing splashes of color. In a fashion world that has been soaked in a sea of camel and gray for so long and a real world that is blanketed in snow and cloudy skies, these visions of color are a refreshing change and a perfect mid-winter (oh I mean beginning of winter) remedy. I mean who needs the sun when you have clothes this bright?

good lord, your mom looks incredible! you should beg her to make you a pair of those.

PS crows feet wrinkles are seriously an incredible feature... i understand how some women feel the need to get rid of their worry lines or under-eye bags... but crows feet and laugh lines speak of a life well-lived (and laughed at)! so i say, be proud! ^^
